Vintage Story was created with the desire to push the envelope of the survival voxel game genre. This genre, established by that one game most of us know and love, also hit just the right chord for Tyron and Saraty, which they played together with great joy for several years. Not being satisfied with the direction this game was taking, they created the mod Butterfly Mania that introduced hundreds of collectible butterflies to liven up the game world and to keep the game interesting. These modding efforts then evolved into a total conversion mod called Vintagecraft that came with its own terrain generation, blocks, crafting mechanics and a slow progression system. The limitations of the 3rd party modding api became more and more apparent however.
In 2015, Tyron was hired by Hypixel to work on their standalone game Hytale, however the game in planning was also not the experience either of them envisioned. And thus, in February 2016, Tyron left Hypixel and began building a new game engine with the goal of turning the vision of Vintagecraft into a stand alone game. Since then we have grown from one programmer to a small team of passionate game developers.
Now, 6 years later since its inception, we still feel like we have barely scratched the surfaces of what is possible. We look forward to exploring these new avenues for many years to come!
