    (BETA IS NOT OPEN YET)
    In preparation for HI3 Open Beta, If you want the same playename as HI1 or 2 we have setup a way to update your emails for protecting those names. By entering the email you will want to use to signup, that email will have to be used to gain the playername. IF different people have the same name on 2 servers, it's whoever signs up for open beta first that gets it.
    If you want the same playername as your HI1/HI2 account: (you must be logged in):

    HI1: https://hi1.horseisle.com/web/reservehi3.php
    HI2e: https://hi2.horseisle.com/www/reservehi3.php
    HI2lc: https://hi2lc.horseisle.com/www/reservehi3.php



    April 26th, 2019:
    We have been franticly cleaning stuff up and adding basic features. We are very nearly to the point where we can try Open Beta. So our hope is to allow open signups within one month.

    We are hard at work getting the server reliable and able to handle more players. Critical work before getting beta going.
    Also: Pathfinder has been hard at work "Defining" the genetics makeup of breeds for HI3. She is sharing some of her work on the Official HorseIsle Facebook Page.

    Pre-Beta Tour!: YouTube Pre-Beta Tour (Video #6)


    February 8th, 2019:
    Same old! Hard work, but nothing major to report. Making progress on every front, but slowly! We've added some simple fun puzzles to the world. One is similar to our Sand Castles on HI2. Instead it's like a turtleshell where you rotate the patterns to interlock.

    We're hoping to start limited beta in a month or two. Initial plan will be to just let a few dozen folks in at a time. Gives us a chance to test out servers and make sure everything good before full open beta. Will just be first come, first served when we open limited beta. Thanks!


    January 16th, 2019:
    Been working hard, but it's been a bunch of minor fixups/cleanups/bugs. this is the slow part, big stuff comes quick, getting it "good" takes time. I don't think I've mentioned our dye system: You can take almost any item you find from plants and flowers and use it as a dye ingredient towards coloring your clothing or tack. So, If you want a deep blue shirt, better start collecting a lot of blueberries :) (Add a few raspberries if you want make the dye a little purplish as well!) Pretty much unlimited dye colors.


    December 27th, 2018:
    Happy Holidays! No worries, only took a day off. We're still hard at work :) No video recently because lots of stuff is really mired in Work-In-Progress state. As soon as some of that settles, we'll try to do another!


    December 15th, 2018:
    Mired in minor bug fixing, which can take a long time for little noticeable benefit, but alas must be done! :) We do have a basic tack system in place however, so making some progress.


    December 6th, 2018:
    Working all day every day... Lots of little things.. Oh, one fun addition is instead of a "Foreign Bidder" there will be a "Horse Trader". They will have various and changing requests for misc types of horses needed in far off lands. Matching his needs gets a sale bonus. I.e. He needs a really brave horse. So for those who like hunting wilds, it adds a mini-mission type system to that.


    November 27th, 2018:
    Coat names. In our previous games, there were up to a hundred or two coats avaialble for horses. Hi3, As it stands, several thousand named coats :)
    everyone is hard at work with some core stuff. nothing super exciting, just the hard work of making everything work well.


    November 19th, 2018:
    Graphics! a few folks have written in asking about this or that laptop or video card working for HI3.
    For the most part *any* dedicated graphics should work, and even *some* newer integrated.
    Here is a website that lists all kinds of video-cards and their relative performance: https://www.videocardbenchmark.net/
    I would say, anything scoring a 2000 or above on there should be enjoyable. and over 1000 should work with reduced settings.
    It's a hard thing to quantify, but that's my best guess :)

    Horse Breeds: YouTube Alpha Preview #5


    November 8th, 2018:
    We've gotten mired in some technical difficulties as we try to polish up the horse some. We've been meaning to do another video soon, but need to work through these problems first! Per getting your same account name, We've fixed the system to compare against HI1/2 emails OR passwords. so when it comes time to sign up, either must match to register an existing HI1 or HI2 name. (For account info as of Nov 6th)


    November 2nd, 2018:
    Chat System: We have a pretty good handle on the chat system we'll go with for HI3. In short, HI1's style filter along with real time moderation.
  • Real time filter turns words which could be considered offensive RED and prevent sending chat. No more accidental flagged chats.
  • We will rely more on a system of chat flagging (via earned trust) and moderators to prevent chat abuse.
  • HI2 strict only dictionary words will not take into effect except maybe for playernames and other critical things.
  • Horse names will be wide open - 'Ed' will be valid :)
  • Chat broken up into a flexible channel system where you can listen to only what you want.


  • October 27th, 2018:
    Breed System! We have added a pretty good Breed Identification system, So If your wild horse happens to match a certain breed's genes/conformation it will be considered one. We Can also support lineage based breeds with the system. We can also create distinct breeds now, will probably be available via another horse token system. Will try to show off a few different breeds in next vid :)


    October 20th, 2018:
    Horse Competition: YouTube Alpha Preview #4


    October 14th, 2018:
    Website mostly done. Horse revisions nearly complete. I can share our loose plans moving forward (no timelines though!). Pre-Beta we will open the HI3 website to just sign up in a protect-your-playername mentality. It will not grant access to game at all. We will protect all hi1/hi2 accounts that were existing as of october 14th, to sign up with an existing name, you will have to use one of the matching emails. We will leave this in place for a few weeks after we start. This way everyone can pre-reserve your existing playernames. There is a complication of hi1 vs hi2 two different players with same names. In those cases, it will be a first come, first served basis.

    Example: If there is a SparklingDuck owned both by an hi1 and a different hi2 player, first one to make an account with either of the emails on record for those accounts will be granted the playername.

    Update: We will try to add support for checking against passwords instead or in addition. We wanted to avoid that, but sounds like many of you have lost old email accounts.


    October 9th, 2018:
    Nighttime, friends, and kayak competition: YouTube Alpha Preview #3


    October 5th, 2018:
    3D Logo completed and website work begun. We're adding terrain based injuries. So if you are riding a tired horse in Cold snow biome, your horse may get frost burn and need vet attention.


    September 29th, 2018:
    3rd person controller, and character builder preview: YouTube Alpha Preview #2


    September 22nd, 2018:
      :)   Our first sneak peak: YouTube Alpha Preview


    September 15th, 2018:
    We're spending a solid month rebuilding parts of world so it runs as smoothly as we can get it. Still, if anyone is getting a new laptop or PC, the main thing that will improve HI3 performance will be "Dedicated Graphics" rather than "Integrated Graphics". A 6 year old PC with a Video Card will likely run the game better than a brand new expensive laptop without 3D hardware. That said, we are taking every step we can to make the game run on as many computers as possible.


    September 4th, 2018:
    We almost have a super simple player character in.. Many things are going to be left in a "To be expanded" state. So that we can go live in a resonable time frame. So, expect basics to start, and then lots of fun content updates after live.


    August 22st, 2018:
    HI3 will include some of the previous HorseIsle Music as well as a lot more new original music by the same composer as HI1 and HI2 - Joe Schwebke!


    August 21st, 2018:
    Fun fact. we have "version controlled" over 1500 versions of HI3 so far. Some days it feels like maybe only 2,543,200 to go! :)


    August 2nd, 2018:
    Ever so slowly... but... Trading! We have trading... just like HI1 and HI2! but, HI3 Trading works! whooop! Did i reveal too much?? :)


    July 18th, 2018:
    We have the beginnings of a game! Almost a few fun things to do :) But, alas, going to be a few more months of grueling effort before we can consider Beta. A fix today: Wild horses no longer found hanging out underwater.. progress!


    June 27th, 2018:
    Still working as best we can on HI3. Progress made every day, but nothing new to share!


    May 15th, 2018:
    HI3 Is in progress! It will take some time, and we are not prepared to share many details yet. But here are some big points (some or all could change). And this will be all the info for a couple months probably :) Sorry. Have to focus! Know that we are working as hard as we can to get this done well.

    Horse Isle: Infinite Wilds
  • Same Horse Isle Community: horse centric, non-violence, no-electricity, all ages appropriate.
  • Same Horse Isle Feel: elements of HI2 and HI1 will be found.
  • 3D infinite wild world with many unique regions to explore, untouched by humans.
  • Realistic horse genetics that determine all aspects of completely unique and individualized horses and breeding.
  • Buy an actual, large plot of land in the world and build your Ranch.
  • Clubs will be central to the game, and will serve in the role as towns of the world.

    Some improvements/tweaks from previous Horse Isles:
  • We will remove all mechanisms for easily making the rich vastly richer. (interest/windmills/etc.)
  • We will remove ease of earning value with a duplicate account so that the issue of multiple account cheating becomes moot. (No reason to block trades from free accounts then.)
  • Probably have similar chat filters, but hope to relax it when appropriate. (Hopefully reduces frustration while keeping a clean space.)
  • We will have a mechanism for selected horses to not age, but expect it to be limited in quantity.
  • Will try to allow non-subbed players to do everything game-play wise, with just lacking some time savings and small bonuses.

    Technical Details:
  • 100% original system, no other game is similar.
  • You can definitely jump logs on the beach :)
  • It will likely have to be a client-download rather than an in-browser game. We will see if we can also release a web version, but even if we did it would run 2-3x slower. We will support what we can - Definitely Win/Mac/Linux.
  • Even though the world will be infinite we will prevent loneliness via a system of limited quick-travel. (So you can meet up with friends.)
  • Graphics will be somewhat similar to HI2, with a painterly cross between realistic and cartoon. Yet totally different :)
  • Fully unique horses. No two Pinto patterns will be ever be the same, etc.
