If you want to unwind and you don't want to rage out more after a long day of work, then don't play Flappy Bird. Instead, play this game called Happy Wheels. Like its title suggests, it's filled with characters that make use of wheels to get to some sort of finish line after the end of each stage. You can choose stages created by the developer, total jerkface (yes, that's their name). You can also play stages created by other players. In turn, you can create stages by yourself using a stage create app. This is the kind of game that encourages user-based content, making it extremely popular as an on-browser game or as an app. Instead of playing expensive games on your favored console, you can play something relatively free on your computer, like this game right here.
Why Happy Wheels Is So Popular on the Internet
* Happy Wheels is a game about wheels, annoying characters, and the catharsis you'll feel from torturing these people with death traps and custom-made stages. The main reason why this total jerkface game is popular on the Internet is because it's a prototypical Internet game. It's the epitome of the random, memetic, and downright rude and edgy content you'd expect to see in the Worldwide Web.
* Happy Wheels is quite the 4chan-like game. 4chan, for good or for ill, is a rude, irreverent, and influential image board with a certain edge to it (with every Chanology and brony community that comes from it, it also produces things like the Anonymous hacker group). Indeed, total jerkface —the developer of Happy Wheels—takes a very 4chan approach to their game... the keyword here being "User-Generated Content".
* Most of the memes and concepts to come out from 4chan—from the KatawaShoujo dating simulator game to the rise in popularity of a girl named "Boxxy" (real name, Catie Wayne)—are from the users of the site obsessing about anything under the sun. In Happy Wheels' case, its popularity arguably stems from the myriad of customized stages and fan-made characters being used by its user base. Its very own fandom generates content, making the simple game more alive and interactive than if it didn't offer customization options.
