Server and website owners of Hyrealm , Rene & Jilly, dropped by to provide some further insight into their exciting new Minecraft server community -
Q: What did you get started in gaming?
Rene: How did I get into gaming? That actually goes way back to my younger years. When I was about 6, I got a SNES for christmas. Ever since then I more or less got hooked on gaming. It really took off a couple years later when I got a N64 for christmas. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time was the first proper 3d video game I tried, and I absolutely got hooked on it after that. Not only is the Zelda series the games that got me into gaming, it is also one of my most favorite series to this date. As you can probably tell Hyrealm is even a word play, to some extent, on The Legend of Zelda. When I got into my teen years and built my first PC, I got hooked on MMORPGs. Till the day MC released, I more or less only played MMO/RPG games. A lot of builds and ideas (coding) that I do in Minecraft these days are inspired by MMORPGs or Zelda games in general, which you will be able to tell from Hyrealm as well.
Jilly: I grew up with video games scattered through my life. I can remember playing Duck Hunt with my Dad at a very young age. The first console I was allowed to play on a regular basis was my Sony Playstation. I mainly played Crash Bandicoot, Spyro, and Gran Turismo. The first computer game I played consistently was Sims. I switched over to PC gaming in college simply for Minecraft. I was introduced by a friend and immediately found myself drawn into the world of online gaming. So 3 years later and I play MMORPGs, League of Legends, Minecraft, and a selection of Steam games (Yes, even CS:GO--No, I’m not good).
Q: Can you give us some insight into Hyrealm's history? How did this gaming project begin?
Q: And finally, if you could request one feature/module to be added to Enjin, what would it be?
Rene: We would like to see support for different Vote listeners.. As it is right now, you can only use Votifier, which isn't a very viable solution if you’re running a BungeeCord system. We feel like a small way of thanking our players for voting is by keeping a running leaderboard through our website. Seeing something like this implemented would improve our website as well as community morale! Thank you Enjin!
If you feel your community has what it takes to be featured in one of our future posts, or you'd like to suggest a community, please send me a message and we'll take a look!
