Jason Schymick (born October 9, 1978, age 42) is an employee of Jim Bonacci's company, Fancy Force, LLC. Jim hired Jason in the beginning of May 2011 to develop and illustrate Happy Wheels. Jason joined Total Jerkface on Febuary 17th, 2010. He has created a number of new items and created Explorer Guy. Jason's screen name on Total Jerkface is simply Jason Schymick.
Before Jason, Jim was the only employee of Fancy Force, LLC. Jason currently deals with the Fancy Force LLC Twitter acount, and replies to user's questions about Happy Wheels. He has also created an FAQ section to answer some of the most common user questions. Jason's first news post on Total Jerkface was "Jason's big boy post" in 2011, and he has written nine more other posts since. Before all of this, Jim just mentioned Jason in his posts. You can visit the FAQ here, and visit his Happy Wheels Wiki profile here.
During the development of the mobile app version of the game, Jason described converting Flash to iOS as being "very difficult. Putting aside things like developing touch controls and the physical limitations of mobile devices, simultaneously converting and updating the code as well as converting the assets from Flash has been a big undertaking. And like all other projects, a million other unexpected issues have come up."
Jim met Jason at his last full-time job, working as a Flash advertising designer in 2006. Jim was quitting his job at advertising to start working on a new game, Happy Wheels, (which, at the time, was simply just Wheelchair Guy and the Happy Green Hills level) and Jason was supposed to be his replacement. Jim and Jason became good friends. As Happy Wheels was under development, Jim showed Jason the demo and he became a fan, tested levels, and offered feedback. Later, Jason quit that job and vowed never to work in advertising again. After Happy Wheels started to become popular, Jim offered Jason a job. Jason made the seventh playable character, Explorer Guy, in 2011. He has also made 5 levels, including the former face of the failing level search, which gave an update on the problem and an update on what Jim had been doing (eating a sandwich).
