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.

Why the fuck does divine intervention suck such a huge chode?
By the exploding cheese on Dec. 29th, 2011 9:02PM
yes! keep them coming...but dont take 4 years...really dont >:( you should make the zombie
and crap then just start adding characters. santa and the zombie your adding will keep people busy for a wile.And the drawing tool probly will cause really noobish levels thats all i have to say
By nerd123 on Dec. 29th, 2011 9:19PM
YES ZOMBIES BUT PLZ PLZ MAKE A TOOL WHERE U CAN BE A ZOMBIE OR A HUMANIZED PERSON. IM ALSO really excited for the new posssible character. Is it really annoying when people keep demanding stuff u try as hard as ya can right? :) ZOMBIES!!!!!!!!!!
By 1gang on Dec. 29th, 2011 9:28PM
maybe add a sign otpion. it has become a problem with levels being copied how many "knife throws" are there? and "kill jb"
By JakeOllieB on Dec. 29th, 2011 9:39PM
Zombies?! You are literally killing all the other flash games now Jim! :)

Thanks for the update, after playing this game for way over a year, it gets better and better!
But I'm sure heaps of people will be mad that all 25 slots can't be filled in 5 seconds, because they have no respect and patience.
Have a great new year!
By jordantheoreo8000 on Dec. 29th, 2011 10:06PM
PLZ make the other character have wheels or else you will destroy the meaning of this game jim... santa is still cool though
By Udie on Dec. 29th, 2011 10:14PM
I don't think we need a new type of NPC, especially one that would be beaten to the ground [in a metaphorical manner.]
By that, I mean it would be overused, you would see Zombie themed levels everywhere, and we'd be a step further from creativity then we are now.
The idea of a drawing tool would be great, if you can implement it, that'd be amazing.
[b]What I'm saying is,[/b] one tool would cause more levels to be pumped out with 0 thought; but there would still be the level every so often that is great and fun to play using this tool.
While the other tool has endless possibilities of what can be made/drawn.
If you're going to do both, go ahead.

Wondering if you could make the characters walk
By doolie on Dec. 29th, 2011 10:50PM
The two things I want to see most in this game are drawing tool and being able to choose the zoom that the level will be played at.
By overkill204 on Dec. 29th, 2011 10:59PM
Any way that you could make this a download so i can play it full screen?? Great game, thx to NOVA for introducing it to me...
By Quinnpon on Dec. 29th, 2011 11:03PM
Agreed ionmaster130. I've already sent a bug report via email, hope it gets there soon *twitch twitch*
By 69love69 on Dec. 29th, 2011 11:13PM
Zombies will eat your brain Jim unless you put them in the game......
By ZanIgneel on Dec. 29th, 2011 11:16PM
suggestion: ppl can log in to theyre accounts ingame and without refreshing the page
By ionmaster130 on Dec. 29th, 2011 11:19PM
1Who is NOVA
2 good idea
3 i think araciver is asskicker68k just sayin
By kritz98 on Dec. 29th, 2011 11:50PM
A drawing tool and zombies. I can see all the "FEED JB 2 TEH ZOMBEES" levels, and others made by stupidass little 5 year olds with no imagination that just consist of a giant penis drawn on the screen. Jim, I don't know about this one. I'm not telling you how to make your game, but PLEASE just think those ideas over carefully.
By Happywheelerguy4356 on Dec. 30th, 2011 12:13AM
I like the santa character Just that much closer to walking NPC's!

By Dayzy on Dec. 30th, 2011 12:24AM
I very much agree with Udie's comment above. A drawing tool would provide users with near endless level designing possibilities.
I read one of FalseFirebirds comments also. I though he was dead or something due to thus lack of community communication.
Before this two features are implemented into the game, I think the forums should be the next thing that is worked on. Just my personal opinion. Keep up the great work Jim.

Hell Yea! ZOMBIES!!!! >=D [quote]UUUUUUUUUUURRR![/quote] This Will Be Epic!!!! Thank you Jim![img]http://school.discoveryeducation.com/clipart/images/thanks.gif&imgrefurl[/img]
By BDasher on Dec. 30th, 2011 11:54AM
i looooove the zombie idea!
By MYMOM234 on Dec. 30th, 2011 11:58AM
HEY! Even the top rated list is infested with crap kill jb, glitch, sign your name, and MOAR CARACTHER levels. Zombies and a drawing tool would be great, but stupid 8 yr olds would abuse them. Then, the top rated list would be filled with, "sign your name where the zombee killed jb after you trow the nife" levels.
Also, when will the forums be back up? Can we at least get a time estimate?
By TheOnlyChosenOne on Dec. 30th, 2011 12:00PM
