Not much is known on the sequel, as Jim has stated he would rather release a final product as opposed to showing the various stages of development. However, various information on features in the sequel has been discussed by Jim on the Happy Wheels Discord server. The game is set to be released some time in the year 2020 or 2021, will be free to play and will work on both Windows and Mac operating systems.
Jim will keep people updated on the works via Happy Wheels Discord. Be sure to check pinned messages in the #sequel-discussion channel.
Original 2.5D Sequel
The original sequel to the game differs greatly from the current sequel. As shown on Jim's YouTube channel, it was to utilize normal mapping to fake a 3D perspective, and be presented in 2.5D (3D on a side-scrolling perspective).
- By utilizing the capabilities of C++ and OpenGL, the sequel displays better physics, dynamic lighting, as well as normal and specular mapping to textures. This also allows the game to be more stable than its Flash-based counterpart.
- Jim also said that characters will have sequenced animations in his post, "I EXIST".
