Tyto Online Early Access Launched

Tyto Online Early Access Launched


We are thrilled to announce that our Early Access version of Tyto Online is now live!

Tyto Online is a MMORPG where you play as an evacuee from the now uninhabitable Earth. You’re settling on the planet Ovo to study at Tyto Academy as you establish your new life. Explore and complete quests while learning real science concepts.

Because we are launching now, we also have a 20% off discount for the next week only! This brings the game to $19.99 right now.  The way the pricing works — at full launch, it will have a subscription, so you’re pre-purchasing your first 3 months’ subscription, but all the early access game time until then is included. The earlier you buy, the more time you get during early access.  We do expect some real bugs and issues right now, so the discount is definitely a thank you for helping us figure that out now!

What does Early Access mean?

Tyto Online is still active in development, and people who join during Early Access get to help shape the process!  This means giving feedback, voting on the next features, reporting bugs, coming up with new ideas, doing live streams with the developers, and more.  This also means the product itself is still going to be buggy and incomplete, so if you’re wanting a completely polished experience, you should wait for the full launch in summer/fall of 2017.  Read more about our early access process here.

We’re always excited to see what the community is able to do with the content we make, and the Himalayas expansion allowed us to see even more of it!

Himalayas Expansion for Tyto Ecology Launches!

Himalayas Expansion for Tyto Ecology Launches!


We are beyond excited to announce that our first expansion pack for Tyto Ecology is now available on Steam for Mac and PC! The environment that is featured in the expansion is based on the Himalayas mountain range in South Asia. We were inspired to add the Himalayas as the next biodome because of the courageous fight against illegal animal trade in the region. Many animals in the mountains, big and small, are harmed every year, and we want to help raise awareness. As such, we’ve decided to donate $1 for each expansion sold to the World Wildlife Fund in honor of the UN’s World Environment Day!

Gamification vs. Game-Based Learning

Gamification vs. Game-Based Learning


With the growth in popularity of video games among K-12 students over the last few years, many teachers have worked to incorporate gaming into their classroom. By adding something fun and relatable to the learning process, students can become more engaged and retain more knowledge. However, there has been some confusion, with people often mixing up gamification and game-based learning.

Tyto Ecology Steam and an EDU Version Now Available!


[UPDATE: Tyto Ecology is no longer available on iPads, and is only available on PC/Mac via Steam.  Unfortunately, we didn’t have enough visibility on iPad to have sales to continue to support that platform.]
Due to user request, we have released two new versions of Tyto Ecology! Our first game was released in January on the iPad, and now we have come out with a version for Steam, as well as an all-inclusive EDU version for the iPad.

Learning from: Fire Emblem Fates

Learning from: Fire Emblem Fates


I have recently been obsessed with the newest Fire Emblem game, Fire Emblem Fates. If you’re not familiar with the series, it’s essentially glorified chess; you control an army of characters and rage war with other troops. The catch is that you grow attached to the characters you control and if they die in a battle, they are dead for the rest of the game. So, being sentimental, I attempt to go through the game without having any of them die, and it pushes me to my mental limits.
