About This Game
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.
Right now, we have mainly content around ecology (aligned with middle and high school science standards) and will be completing the Ecology Module when we get the create-your-own ecosystem sandbox into Tyto Online. We'll continue to add features and content along with our early access users in a true co-development fashion, based on your close input and conversations. Our target is to have 3 complete modules with sandbox and emergent gameplay features, and a very smooth experience overall, before we leave early access. As we continue, our long-term goal is to have a massive MMORPG where you can learn across many subject areas as you play for years.
CURRENT GAME FEATURES
Customizable Apartment with furniture and decor kits.
30+ Quests at early access launch
3 Espeth City Zones: Espeth Park, Student District, Civics District
4 Biodomes from Earth: Mojave Desert, Great Plains Grassland, Amazon Rainforest, Himalayan Forest

Please note that we currently have 3+ hours of gameplay content. We are active in development and have many ways to co-develop with our Early Access users (see the descriptions above). We plan on new updates every 2-3 weeks that include additional content. More sandbox and emergent elements with replayable components will be added within the coming months.

It is 2142, and Earth is no longer home to humans. You’ve been evacuated alongside countless others, and have spent the past four years traveling through space. Your destination: the planet Ovo, where you’ll begin a new life. Ovo is home to many strange and wonderful plants and animals, as well as hundreds of humans who made the journey before you. Tyto Academy, the most prestigious school in the galaxy, has accepted you as a student. Spend your days exploring and performing experiments in the Ovonian jungle, and decorating your very own, private apartment. Care for the last of Earth’s native plants and animals in the biodome facility. Quest by yourself or with friends online, and learn real scientific concepts as you play. Who knows? Perhaps your collective efforts may one day restore the Earth!
