If you start up Hedgewars today you'll be greeted by the spooooky background of the Halloween theme. We remind you to beware of any suspicious pumpkins you see on the battlefield--they could be hedgehogs in disguise!
|In other news, today is also doubly important as it is Hedgewars' birthday!
Happy birthday and congrats everyone.
12 years and still going. Hedgewars is almost an unruly teenager.
Party hats for all!

TWITCH PLAYS HEDGEWARS
(Kudos to twitch user testmarshall for making this!!!)
There you can play Hedgewars using chat, competing with your enemies and possibly also your team mates
Gain points and money, bet on results, buy items or special events etc. etc.!
E.g. enter st blue (set team) to join the blue team!
Then you can use things like left 5 to make your Hedgehog walk (if it's your team's turn), then choose a weapon and follow the chat's instruction about how to fire/target your weapon (often fire <angle> <power>)
Read the instructions below the stream if you want to find out more
PS: Since this is twitch, expect a stream delay of 10 seconds or higher - the (sub-)turn times do compensate for that though!
In the BehindTheHedge series we provide brief glimpses into what's going on at the development side of the game.
In this episode I will talk mostly about the changes made to how hedgehogs spawn and how fort mode got upgraded.
