holiday news post about information for you
By someone on Dec. 29th, 2011 10:18PM
I've been meaning to make a post about the Santa update. WHAT YOU ARE READING RIGHT NOW WILL BE THAT POST.
If you didn't notice, Santa Claus is now the eighth playable character in Happy Wheels. He's the first character to consist of 3 people. He also has no wheels. That's ok, I made this game and I will do whatever the hell I want! Understand? The next couple characters will probably be a bit simpler.
At this pace, all 25 slots will be filled in only 4 years! I hope flash still exists by then. I will try to go faster I guess.
I am still up in the air about what the I'd like to keep doing. The month of December was absurdly amazing in terms of traffic. Thanks to some very popular youtube channels, traffic has tripled from the previous high. Also, thanks very much to Adura, we've made some great backend optimizations, and the site can actually handle the traffic. All of that seems to clearly be telling me to continue working on the flash version of the game. I'll most likely end up dividing my time between this and continuing to learn c++/opengl (I think I've rambled on about this before, but got sidelined by Santa). I've got so many stupid, smaller, simpler ideas for other games I'd like to make. In any case, thanks so much to everyone for playing Happy Wheels this past year and allowing me to continue doing what I think I'm supposed to be doing.
By the way, 1.52 was just a few Santa bug fixes as well as error handling stuff Jason did that should eliminate blue loading screens.
The next thing I do in the game might be a simple drawing tool, or zombies that attack your character. The next thing I will do in real life is plan my dinner.
Happy New year in a few days.

WOW! lol that was cool!
By thest0rmyblu on Dec. 29th, 2011 6:17PM
I love u Jim!
Keep up the good work, and try to ignore the idiots begging for a new character every two seconds. They clearly don't know what it's like to be a game developer.

@thestormyblu. I second that notion.
By ThatStump on Dec. 29th, 2011 6:21PM
After 4 years in development, hopefully, it would've been worth the wait.
By kEwLiO on Dec. 29th, 2011 6:22PM
@thestormyblu. I second that notion.

By cashell on Dec. 29th, 2011 6:31PM
Ihanks Jim great work, I love the game. p.s I think a unicycling clown would be a decent character
By aussieausten on Dec. 29th, 2011 6:32PM

By fordgunner on Dec. 29th, 2011 6:37PM
cool, cant wait. i know a cool charcter you could use. how about an animal like a dog on a mini car or someting :) ??
By seanmick on Dec. 29th, 2011 6:47PM
Hey jim Next update could you make it so that in replays you could view the next character that u can controll? A.K.A the Irresponsible dads kid, Santa's Elves... For when people save replays viewers cannot see them.
By jugglao on Dec. 29th, 2011 6:49PM
maybe the new charcter should be aa sleigh like santas but a reindeer is driving and santas driving
By noodlien on Dec. 29th, 2011 6:49PM
dude that would be awesome!!!! i would love to see zombies that attack you and could you make it so you could have like teamates like enemy characters and freindly characters and you can equip them with like pick axes and zombies there hands XD like.... a war that would be awesome and a easyer way to make veichles move its waaaay to complicated and for example run human run 2 i Have no clue how he made that veichle is there a tutorial for it?[code[/code]
By jugglao on Dec. 29th, 2011 6:49PM

By noodlien on Dec. 29th, 2011 6:50PM

By rafamaluco1 on Dec. 29th, 2011 6:58PM
thanks jim you are a legend in the world of games.
PS:I got an idea to a new character,it could be a dog in a bike being pushed by a cat.
By MOCOTOUCH on Dec. 29th, 2011 7:04PM
Like Jim, but one idea is to do a character that a woman walking with a car and a baby, and also have an animal that bites you when you touch can be a big cat
By jonny247 on Dec. 29th, 2011 7:07PM
can u make a mom or a kid driving a car
By nATE SELLERS on Dec. 29th, 2011 7:17PM

HAPPY NEW YEARS!!!!!!35th comment wewt
By The Phish on Dec. 29th, 2011 7:45PM
It would be nice to make a few more character but take your time. When you make the character, take the time to fix him from glitches so people dont complain. Thank you, and continue to make us proud, The Phish

i bet that most of perople (including myself) are to lazy to draw our own things so i think you sould work on the zombies because people like zombies
By ionmaster130 on Dec. 29th, 2011 7:55PM
i agree^ or something that wont make cense like a zombie driving hearse
By FalseFirebird on Dec. 29th, 2011 8:00PM
Once Adura re-implements the forums I'll most likely start plahying some more.
By riley1011 on Dec. 29th, 2011 8:02PM
make a girl character next!! NEED MORE GIRLS xD you have girls who play happywheel also
By dypo on Dec. 29th, 2011 8:10PM
The zombies are going to be pretty cool. But you should add more misc., items. Or more hazerds. Thank you for making this website so AWESOME!

You should make an undead character that can only stop moving if he's completely torn apart.
By ionmaster130 on Dec. 29th, 2011 8:16PM

1.) I really think that the drawing tool would be better. People could make way more creative levels.
2.) I've been posting really nice and legitimate levels. The problem is that barely anyone sees them. What am I doing wrong?
By Lighthead on Dec. 29th, 2011 8:27PM
happy 2012 Jim and Jason and whoever playing happy wheels!
By ionmaster130 on Dec. 29th, 2011 8:54PM
