"Instead of risking lots of time and making a full minigame and all the strain that goes with it, we can use the Prototype Lobby to rapidly test new ideas, freeing up more development time to work on updates and quality of life improvements to other classic games across the server."

The Prototype Lobby
The Prototype Lobby is an area on the server where games in Beta or Alpha stages are tested. When playing Prototype Games you can earn Hype, you can use this Hype to add to games that you enjoy. Games with the most Hype will be added as a proper game in the future, games that don't have much Hype will be removed eventually. Sometimes the Admins might keep a game even if the Hype count is low.
The Prototype Lobby was announced on January the 5th 2017 by Hypixel.
