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.

Hehe, so many people ACTUALLY believed he was incarcerated. You gotta check the Facebook or twitter page now and then...And nice to know you're alive.

By Corvet152 on May. 22nd, 2012 9:05PM
While you're in Thailand, ask for some 10 year old boys, no LSG.
By Beerparty on May. 22nd, 2012 9:09PM
You spelled "Fourth" wrong.
By papa 8 on May. 22nd, 2012 9:10PM

By argilouer on May. 22nd, 2012 9:16PM
I seriously think that the next character should be tricycle with Timmy on it.
Plz play my levels!!!
By papa 8 on May. 22nd, 2012 9:24PM

play my new punching npc totourial here http://www.totaljerkface.com/happy_wheels.php?levelid=3718852
By theFROG on May. 22nd, 2012 10:11PM
I noticed that the female voices were the same for the fat woman shopper and the woman of the motor-riding couple. How 'bout changing the voice of the fat woman so each character has their own voice? :)
By September Bravo on May. 22nd, 2012 10:28PM
Thank fucking captain america for this post. Skateboard kid for a suggestion
By Artist Smeargle on May. 22nd, 2012 10:31PM
What, are you played a 4 months old "younger" version of this game?
By bruno assasin on May. 22nd, 2012 10:38PM
Jim is incarcerated????
By Wolfblood746 on May. 22nd, 2012 10:55PM
I researched and Jim was arrested for Child pornography, he held over 1,000 videos. He also raped a family member...He also lost his job as a bus driver
you're still awesome
By chaoshead222 on May. 22nd, 2012 10:58PM
PLEASE USE PEWDIEPIE as a new character or use ihascupquake as a new vocal
By Artist Smeargle on May. 22nd, 2012 11:58PM
@Wolfblood746 That's actually a different Jim Bonacci. OUR Jim Bonacci is NOT 69 years old or near that age.
By IAMUREWIFE on May. 23rd, 2012 12:11AM
Oh thank god!! :D
By Zeldy on May. 23rd, 2012 12:12AM
Just a thought, and it would be simple to do: Make it impossible for people to rate their own levels. I'm sick of seeing really stupid new levels with 5 stars.
Great job with Pogostick man. I'm absolutely loving him!
By josh1237 on May. 23rd, 2012 12:34AM
Have pewdiepie record!!!
By wyme on May. 23rd, 2012 12:41AM
I remember Happy Wheels before it even had a like button. Memories. I still haven't made an important contribution since I've been here.
By josh1237 on May. 23rd, 2012 12:43AM
Make a skateboarder or a go-karter!
Have pewdiepie do vocals!
Check out my levels please!
By PatheticShoujo on May. 23rd, 2012 12:48AM
Daaaaaamn dat Nova's voice is sexy
I was wishing for Pewdie's voice on another character until I read this whole post. Well, whatever.
By lavameh on May. 23rd, 2012 01:02AM
[b]What did he do to be incarcarated if its true?[/b]
By Hammy120 on May. 23rd, 2012 01:07AM
What'd Jim do in Thailand?
By Bert on May. 23rd, 2012 02:34AM
0% of people on this post are on-topic, seriously, SHUT UP! For fuck sake, stop with these pathetic character suggestions + other shitty stuff! It's so annoying!
OT: Thanks for the new post! I'd love to see Jim's socks, they'll be sexy for sure! Pogotstick man sure is epic! I hope idiot noobs stop begging for other 'famous' Happy Wheels players in a character.
Thanks for telling these idiots to make original levels instead of stupid wall-jump levels, although I assure you noobs don't care, they don't have respect for anyone!
Also, nice joke with Jim being incarcerated. XD
I'm pretty sure noobs would love to lock you up and scream at you begging to make 'MOAR CARIKTER!!1'.
By theFROG on May. 23rd, 2012 03:08AM
I don't understand. lol
By lilrainbowduck on May. 23rd, 2012 03:10AM
effective shopper to me aka susan should be voiced by chimney swift11
By Artist Smeargle on May. 23rd, 2012 03:39AM
@theFROG Re-read your post, but now a new question has arisen. (I thought that you meant that you thought Moped Woman and Effective Shopper had the same voice still, which is not true.)
Why should Effective Shopper get a new voice, if she is the only character who has her current one at the moment? There is only one character who could get a voice change and that would be Explorer Guy, as he shares his voice with Segway Guy. (Or was his voice changed without me noticing?)
By sercanalas on May. 23rd, 2012 05:17AM
Let Jim to talk dude, we know you're alive. :P
By AwesomeTomer on May. 23rd, 2012 06:57AM
Jason I live in Thailand and would really like to met Jim. What part of Thailand is he staying in? P.S I'm 11 so don't worry I won't kidnap him :)
By theFROG on May. 23rd, 2012 07:05AM

By Stryllus on May. 23rd, 2012 08:44AM
It's fortunate to know that you're all alive.
Thanks for the news update, Jason.

You guys are going way to slow... Start making things faster and i'll like this game... -_-'
By MILKhunter on May. 23rd, 2012 12:53PM
I would voice a character! You should have a character who's ''vehicle'' is a horse.
By ACHIEVERjunior on May. 23rd, 2012 12:56PM
Robox, just fuck off, people without patience should be killed by tearing their skin off very slowly
