Jason's big boy post
By Happy Wheels on May 09, 2011

Writing news is very tiring, so here's Jason instead:


In the last month some cool stuff has happened. First off, Happy Wheels now has an office. This means that Jim can get out of his apartment and stop bitching about how being a hermit is driving him insane. It also has allowed him to hire me to help develop the game. Between having an office and an employee he pays to show up on time, things should remain on schedule. So far it's been pretty great. We plan on updating the game more frequently. You may have noticed we've added a few new breakable items: television, boombox, bottles, and a chair. It's a minor update, but I feel pretty honored to be the first person to work directly on the game itself. Also, we think breaking stuff in the game is fun.

Second, a new character is coming. Jim has finished most of the illustration. Without ruining the surprise, I think it's going to be pretty hilarious. It's a single character and it should feature a modified jump. We can't say exactly when it will be released, but he's working hard to get it out as soon as possible. Jim really wants to focus adding new characters.

Third, t-shirts and other merch will be available pretty soon.

Forth, we're working on addressing the server issues. Please be patient.

And finally, a bit about me (you can skip this part as I'm done talking about the game). Jim and I met at our last full-time job. He was leaving to work on a game and I was hired to take over his position. The game wasn't even "Happy Wheels" back then. It was simply an old man in a wheelchair rolling down a hill. But as Jim developed it, I became a big fan. I too quit my day job and vowed never to work in advertising ever again. And then some time passed and Happy Wheels had become more than a game, but a community of people creating awesome levels. Because I know Flash/Box2D, can illustrate and also develop iOS apps, Jim hired me to help out. This story is riveting. Anyway, I’m pretty excited to be a part of this.

My name in the forums is Jason Schymick.

Awesome to hear that Jim's able to take someone like yourself on board. I know there is always demand for new updates, and Jim has done a fantastic job, but this update and the hopes that updates and the game in general will run a bit more smoothly from now on is brilliant news. Welcome! :)

By AkAddictViruz on May 16, 2011

the character is going to be called lawnmower man he said
By CaucasianMelon on May 14, 2011

Man, that is amazing what you have accomplished with I'm glad Tom is able to offer help with selling the merch in their store. As far as the updates, the game is amazing as it is, and I hope you all take your time making this game an effective one. Effectiveness is better than putting out so much and yet still it has a lot of relative issues. And besides, now that you guys have your own office, it'll be much better with managing things such as server-side issues and such. It's good to see Jim getting into it now, because this game will achieve very much.
By mikeman174 on May 14, 2011

i realy like this game i know i sound like a wierd :P
By Dayzy on May 13, 2011

I don't know where you guys heard there would be a toilet but judging by how much you're talking about it, I guess it's coming. And also I'm wondering if the toilet has an empty hole in it? For like, I don't know, poo? And a open or close button would be good.

By agentmario on May 11, 2011

[b]SPOILER!!!![/b] the new character is a guy on a lawn mower !!!!!!!
By lolpwnage221 on May 11, 2011

Hey, Jason. Good luck with the game! Hope to see some interesting things come out, like fire, and that new character!
By Jason Schymick on May 11, 2011

@trotterski That's funny--I already watched a number of YouTube videos of guys smashing toilets. The problem tends to be the ambient noise which, when filtered out, reduces the quality of the smash itself. Thanks, I may try to use this.
By Jason Schymick on May 11, 2011

@trotterski The toilet is coming along fine, but... it's just a toilet. You'd think it would be easier to find toilet smashing sounds, but it's quite difficult. @styder237 You may see more sliders which modify simple objects, like the bottle. It really comes down to whether or not we have time to do the illustration/how much it enhances the game. @CoolBreeze Haha... Well, let's hope the power doesn't corrupt me.
By dawangsta on May 11, 2011

awesomeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee thankyou

Jason, you just became a TJF celebrity in about two days.
By chris1717 on May 11, 2011

By SeggieNooo on May 11, 2011

I really want to see the fire actually, I think it'd really add a lot more variety to the game. But if the new character is a guy on a lawnmower...FUCK YES!
By djex5691 on May 11, 2011

I have an idea... Character Editor and comments for levels and dislikes and likes for creator comments
By BunkeeMo Jones on May 11, 2011

That's like the best story ive heard in a while o3o
By trotterski on May 11, 2011

So, how about that toilet, Jim?
By coolercookie46465456 on May 11, 2011

i guess its a unicycle
By Alex Taylor on May 11, 2011

Thanx for any updates on the game, it makes it much better
By nicky929 on May 11, 2011

If the new character was Lara Croft from Tomb Raider,it would be coolz.>:D
By styder237 on May 11, 2011

Yiu should add a slider to all the objects like with the bootles so you can change the type of object.
By luipaardgekko on May 11, 2011
