It was included in a computer magazine I used to buy. The first release they included didn't really interest me, but as I could see further Hedgewars releases over the years I eventually started following the game on my own. Being a fan of Worms helped here.

I started playing games on this really old computer (well, it wasn't old then, but anyway), and one of the games my dad had installed for me was Hedgewars (he was a Scorched Earth fan). Problem was, I was six, and really the only games I played on it were Tic-tac-toe and whatnot. I started playing, had no idea what was going on, and went to go play with my toy trucks instead. Years later, I learned how to play, and it's one of my favorite games to date!

A long time ago (probably around 2010), while searching for some free Worms game,

i have never been disapointed by hedgewars, free worms, or as i prefer : a worms like game, not a clone, an 'inspired by' game

My dad at 2018 installed Hedgewars on our computer and I started playing. On 2019 I made an account and I was playing on servers. Sonic!
Sorry for any errors, i from Russia Ushanka! Smile .

Haha, unC0Rr, funny as always. :P

(For those that don't know: unC0Rr is the one that started it all! Without unC0Rr, there would be no Hedgewars. Big Grin)

I was looking to play a Worms game, I discovered Hedgewars as a suggested alternative or as a clone.

I am addicted to HedgeWars. I found it by accident in 2010 in Ubuntu's software thingy and since then have been addicted to HW. I used to play Worms way back in the day (Windows 98 era). Hedgewars actually seems better than Worms and Wormux, much more polished and as a Sonic fan this is just heaven having pink (rather than blue) hedgehogs battling for forts. What I like the most is being able to create your own weapon and schemes so you can do crazy things like launch numerous watermelons on the basketball image map while invulnerable and blow everyone else up while being unharmed, just silly things like that as well as the usual default artillery warfare. I think that Baseball is my favourite mission. I am glad that 12 years later it’s still going strong. My other interests are Secret Maryo Chronicles, a port of Super Mario and Midtown Madness 2 among many others.

I just was browsing a Sonic themed site I used to frequent as a child called Mystical Forest Zone, since apparently it went back online again in 2021. On the "Links" page there was a big fat button for Hedgewars, which is probably how I found this website.

We had some local web network in Yakutsk, and there was a gaming community. That's how I found out about Hedgewars! Smile They even had IRC channel for it, IIRC, and we had some fun.





Hello, I am author of Typewriter Hedgewars Lua library.
Will be happy to contribute in some HW campaign or mission!
