We are alive
By someone on May. 21st, 2012 6:43PM
Hello everyone (this is Jason). Here's that news post that everyone has been asking about.
First off, we've added Pogostick Man. All of you know this. As you might guess, he rides a pogo stick. Thanks to Nova
for providing vocals. Now when he plays Happy Wheels, he can scream with
himself. And the internet becomes a bit less lonely of a place. Some of you have asked about having other YouTube gamers record vocals. We're not really planning on doing that. A male voice was needed and Nova, who happens to have a fairly unique voice, mentioned interest. We'll most likely go and record a bunch of new voices soon. The next character vocals are most likely female.
Pressing up/down moves Pogostick Man forward/backward with small jumps. Holding space bar results in a big jump. Pressing shift makes him stand upright on the pogo stick and control makes him crouch. Some of his joints are stronger than other characters which allow him to land big jumps without breaking to pieces. Once ejected, his joints are normal strength.
The response to Pogostick Man has been pretty incredible, but this of course has resulted in a trend of unoriginal wall-jumping levels which has polluted the level browser. Please make original levels.
Second, we have exceeded ONE MILLION Facebook 'likes'. Hitting this mark was never expected. In fact, we originally were hoping for 5000 (Jim: "we did?"). And of course we talked about doing something for this event, but then planned poorly and missed it. So the surprise is that there was no surprise. We will eventually post some awesome pictures of the socks that Jim bought. Or we won't. We know you love the suspense. Thanks to everyone who clicked 'like'.
Third, the development of the forums is on hold. We estimated it would be done by now, but then something came up.
Forth, things are a bit slow right now because Jim is incarcerated in Thailand, but I assure you we're always working on something and there are a lot of things to come.

Nice to see the positive support for my idea. And look, another page plagued with noobs! That challenge I set a while ago of having one page without a noob commenting is so far failing.
And flynn2277 obviously has never played Happy Wheels (not sure why he's begging then), let me explain it to him. Happy [b]Wheels[/b]. [b][i]Wheels[/i][/b]. [b][i][u]Wheels[/u][/i][/b].

Sure, ACHIEVER has unoriginal boss levels and crap, but he DOESNT have 170+ shit levels, and he DOESNT try to brag about them.
By D J A Y on Jun. 7th, 2012 08:43AM
Hey guys...still no word from jim or jason
By LWPeterson on Jun. 7th, 2012 3:27PM
I know I have a lot of levels. But his most played has about 2,000. My most played has about 3,000 plays.
By Foggy Red Lights on Jun. 7th, 2012 4:34PM
Mine has almost 15,000 plays...mehehe. K, we ought to stop flaming LW and his levels. Trust me, I'd rather play his levels than 90% of other levels by n00bs. So lets call it quits.
By Aces17 on Jun. 7th, 2012 4:39PM
this website is shit it always crashes fix that
By LWPeterson on Jun. 7th, 2012 7:07PM

By zacho777 on Jun. 7th, 2012 10:02PM

By Luigi Is pro on Jun. 7th, 2012 10:32PM
Sorry that I came back at an unexpected time in this chat (mixed up topics that people talk about in here). But, views are not important. Well to a point they are (it depends how many views you have gotten like 50K+ or more to feel achieved) even though you get low views, the levels that people create on the originality, the details, the gameplay, the storyline/fun. That is what creates the better levels, views are just like youtube on how many people see it. But the categories I mentioned is what really matters.
By Bert on Jun. 8th, 2012 12:00AM
Eaxctly! There's stupid 'Rate 5 for glitch!' levels that get tens of thousands of plays, but in the end, it's just pathetic crap that noobs got scammed into.
I haven't worked on this level I'm making in a while, I've been working on it for nearly a year, but damn is it detailed! The vehicle I made is super detailed, and lots of vehicles in the top played are damn rectangles with 2 circles!
By eddie1234567890 on Jun. 8th, 2012 09:14AM
have you guys got a team of people working for you and also are you getting payed for making this awesome game. bye 1theedster
By Foggy Red Lights on Jun. 8th, 2012 4:32PM
He gets payed by the advertisers or donations. I would donate if I actually had a job, which I am considering about getting soon...
By chexmixrap45 on Jun. 8th, 2012 4:52PM
Why is it every time i go to top rated crapy noob levels push down the good levels!, its so OLD!! PEOPLE!!. please make better levels and not remakes of the same friggin level all the time!!!!!!!!!
By The Pretentious Jerk on Jun. 8th, 2012 5:13PM
Wow. I have comment 666. Anyway, I have a new idea I'd like to suggest for hazards- fire! Or anything fire related. The pyromaniac in me would love to see the HW characters ablaze and charred.
By LWPeterson on Jun. 8th, 2012 6:54PM
Fire will never be added if you visit the F.A.Q.
By chexmixrap45 on Jun. 8th, 2012 8:54PM
It looks like Jim put up the new server. The sites runing faster now =D
By MYMOM234 on Jun. 8th, 2012 9:03PM
LWpeterson, please refer to Luigi is pro's post, since im too lazy to come up with some witty remark about your shitty level.
I have comment 169. UMADBRO?
Some noob just messaged me about how i rated his "STOP FAKE GLITCH" level 0. (i kinda put that in the comment lol) He thought that I THOUGHT that it was a REGULAR GLITCH level.
He ranted to me about how i didnt read the level title.
I gave him a whole fucking essay about why he shouldnt make a STOP FAKE GLITCH level.(good grammar and everything)

Jetpack guy voiced by Pewdiepie!!!
By Bert on Jun. 8th, 2012 9:49PM
I'm going to go back in time and make sure PewDiePie never existed...
By LWPeterson on Jun. 9th, 2012 06:45AM
Didn't you read the mews post? Jason said that the next voice will problably be [b][i][u]FEMALE!![/u][/i] [/b] Got that? And don't give people your character suggestions that nobody cares about. Characters take a long time to make!! Understand?
By Foggy Red Lights on Jun. 9th, 2012 08:38AM
I admit that I don't know a thing about box2d or Flash altogether, but I doubt that 99% of us know either. Look at other box2d games and compare them to Happy Wheels. In fact, even Angry Birds, a box2d game, doesn't compare to Happy Wheels. I may be wrong, but I think EVERY item in this game was made with box2d. The spring platform. The homing mine. The body parts and the characters we love to see do epic stunts. So please, PLEASE, think of the effort that was put into the characters before you make a suggestion. So, for people that called 'Pogostick Man' shitty, it's like getting a 99% on an exam and your parents saying it's a shitty grade.
Must be my longest comment ever. Wow. I may message this to some n00bs...
By LWPeterson on Jun. 9th, 2012 08:53AM
To get info about adobe flash player right click the on click on "about adobe flash player". Remember the mouse has to be on the happy wheels player screen.

No character suggestions below this line:
By JMan11 on Jun. 9th, 2012 11:00AM
Stop trying to get these guys to make characters or more youtube people to voice them it was a one off they'll make what they want and we will like it because that's what has happened the entire time.
By Bert on Jun. 9th, 2012 11:25AM
The entire Happy Wheels physics engine runs off Box2D, meaning any items added will run off the physics engine (if it has physics).
I can also assure that line will be ignored and noobs will continue to beg. Remember, noobs don't actually know there's more pages. Heck, I could say what all these noobs keep begging for: JIM IZ ADDYING NEKED SURFA GURL VOISED BI PEWDIEPIE!!!
They'll never know I said that...

Hey guys I'm back and I just wanted to say hi, and uh go fuck yourself peter *coooooough* so as I was saying hi everybody, still can't play happy wheels which is hell to me
By Luigi Is pro on Jun. 9th, 2012 5:00PM
Well, what's going on here. Still new people trying to make gay suggestions. Hey it's fine as long as I'm not in here having to type to some ignorant fucking kid that won't understand it's fine by me that you guys go to the rescue and stop him and whatnot. But for now, I decided to just avoid this havoc going on around the news thread. Meh, Happy Wheels is still kind of boring as is. Shitty levels are still being made from people having no creativity shoved up their asses, yet they get really great views, which I'm not surprised that Happy Wheels is now almost completely filled with not even pre-teen'ed children. I am amazed, Happy Wheels needs to return back to the way it used to be from the times of Mid September 2010- Late May 2011. Those were the fun times that Happy Wheels has got it's glory. But now since this site got more famous, little kids just decide to play Happy Wheels causing more children based minded levels. More simple levels, bad ratings on hard creative levels. And yet, this problem isn't fixed. I don't know why's that. New Era Of Happy Wheels. I completely dislike it. That's why I rarely get on this anymore. Just children overpopulating this game is a shame.
That's all I got to say. I will be releasing a new level, but I will just avoid the news threads, it's really pathetic on how many people complain about something so simple in this chat.
