Woohoo! 0.8.2 Free. How about we go Woohoo! Live!?
As promised earlier today, Woohoo! is now free to play for everyone. You can still donate if you wish ;)
It’s also worth mentioning that we’re planning to release Woohoo in html5 canvas some time later. Will it be the same? No. We have a few ideas on our minds that in theory at least sound as good alternatives to what’s out there on the market already. Stay tuned ;)
Woohoo! about to go free
We’ll be rolling an update shortly with a free version of Woohoo!
The info on the site has been already updated, the game will be soon as well, stay tuned!
You can still donate, get a key and a shiny star in the ranks, other than that it’s totally free of charge.
Contest winners announcement!
Slightly delayed but there they are!

Good job everyone!
The contest has ended and we have our happy winners. Well, most of them are us and/or our friends but there are a few quite attached players we don’t know in person which we’re really happy to see coming back every now and then! Big ups to you, keep it up! Thanks!;) We’ll have the keys sent over to you shortly.

Woohoo Drive! 0.7.3 beta released!
We’re extremelly excited to announce the first official release of Woohoo Drive!
Woohoo Drive! is a great top-down racing game where you drive your space rig using your mouse or tablet only. The point is to get from point A to point B as fast as you can. Your highscores are then sent to the online scoreboard and you get ranked against other players! Whether you’re bored sitting in an office or looking for a fun game to chill you out, Woohoo Drive is a perfect match! For more info you can visit the about section.
We’ve put quite some effort to get with Woohoo that far and as indie developers we don’t ask for much in return! You can download Woohoo! for free, both for Linux and Windows. If you like the game and want to see it developing further, we really encourage you to register your copy of Woohoo! for a symbolic $5. You can have a look at a draft sketch of what we’re planning to implement in the about section.
Also, we heavily rely on the word of mouth as one of the means for spreading Woohoo Drive! across the universe so if you can please share this game with your friends that would be much appreciated! Thank you!
Everyone enjoy a free slice of Woohoo! The tab is all on us!
Looking forward to hearing some feedback from you and hopefully some registrations, too!
