We accidentally left a test feature in our last release, if you downloaded the new version early you probably noticed your hedgehogs have funny little hats. This feature is incomplete (expect it later), we've updated the installer to remove it, we've also added another new map to tempt you to download it!
Make sure you clear your browsers cache before getting the new version, it should be around 9.1mb in size!
Sorry for any inconvenience, I hope you enjoy 0.9.4!
Hedgewars 0.9.4 is finally here! And despite the small version increase it brings with it a huge update!
In this version you'll be getting:
- In game chat!
- New Maps!
- Two new themes!
- Many many new animations!
- New weapons
- New features
And much much more!
This is the most polished version of Hedgewars yet, don't miss out!
Go and grab it in our download section, and let us know what you think in the forums!
Hello lads and ladies.

- Two new themes, desert island and city
- New maps
- New animations, including an idle animation!
- Rope reworked, much greater momentum, ability to aim the rope between swings

- Teams now work in fort mode, i.e. 2v2
- Many network/gameplay bug fixes
- Ability to attack whilst jumping/rope swinging
- Some weapons can only be used after a certain number of turns
- Lots of new graphics
And this is just a handful of the updates in 0.9.4
