Game Mechanics and Community Involvement
Central to HV-MTL Forge was the crafting and maintenance of forges and the care of digital creatures called HVs. Players engaged in activities ranging from tile building to the unique 'shit cleaning' mechanic.
A crucial element was the community-driven voting system, where the success and evolution of players' HVs hinged on community approval and votes. This blend of creative gameplay and social interaction formed the heart of the experience, encouraging innovation and community engagement.
