Electoral Update: Breaking Cannons

Posted by Sir Max on March 14, 2014 at 2:00 PM

Ohhhhh boy! It's great to be back! No, your eyes aren't fooling you. It's the one, the only, the- err... Maxy: Sir Max! Can you believe it's been over a month since we last talked? Well, me talking to you I suppose. You don't do much conversing here. You should talk more.

I don't have much time to talk today, though. Alec Tinn was scheduled to have this post, but the other troopers managed to distract him for a while by continually knocking over the ballot box, causing him to recount the votes every time. He'll only recount them for so long before he learns how to keep records. Now, hang onto your seats for this post, because we're going to have to break a few cannons. Surlee is absolutely bonkers about it, but we've just got to tell you: We're tired.

The Toon Council Presidential Election started out as just a small event to give us a little bit of time to work on the upcoming major features of our town, along with give us a chance to make our first new content for the game. We ran into one problem, though: Making new content is really, really fun. The more we work on it, the more we want to work on it! We've had idea on top of idea on top of idea, and we just don't know where to stop. From Giant TV Screens to Interactive NPCs, we've been piled up with an endless amount of fun things to do.

The problem with this is that we overloaded ourselves by a tiny bit. By a tiny bit, I mean all of us are literally dead. Literally. Shockley ran away, McQuack threw a temper tantrum, and I forwarded my resignation letter to Alec, then blew off all of my Jellybeans at Disney World and came crawling back today. (Those hats are expensive, but no one can pass up on some Mickey Merch!)

Don't worry -- we're far from dead. We're just needing a little time to regroup and get the Election polished up without any pressure on our backs. So yeah, bring on the sighs and rotten tomatoes, because the Election is delayed once again. Not nearly as long as last time, though. Maybe. Probably!

Oh -- and don't tell Alec about this. We haven't broken the news to him yet. He is going absolutely cuckoo with stress on finishing the election (Which in turn, drives us Troopers into slave labor), so we're going to let him down easy. We're getting Flippy to bake a cake for him with a bunch of fireworks inside to break the news. It'll be fun! Ah, I almost forgot! While we were distracting Alec, I managed to snag two pieces from the mess of papers on the ground. I bet you can guess what those papers are, too. Yep, that's right: NAPKINS! We needed some napkins to clean up the cake after it explodes. There were some names on them, though. Wacky Leroy and Lancelot Whistlethud...? Everyone around me is clapping and congratulating you both now that I've said that, so I guess you got some sort of reward. An Alpha Key, maybe?

Anyhow, I'll be back soon to give you updates on when the real, absolute, final date for the election is, along with any other answers you may need. In the meantime, we'll keep the polls open in case anyone wants to get in some lucky last minute votes. See you soon, and it's been nice talking to you without any real response again. Keep up the good work on those talking classes!

I'm glad you're enjoying yourself with new ideas, Sir Max! Just make sure you don't get burned out.

Yay! I can't wait for the elections! Is it tomorrow? I really hope it goes super well! I hope everyone's happy too, because only one candidate can be president. So I hope there's no hard feelings! Congratulations to, Miss Lemonmuffin, Clippy, Baron JC, Brady, Funnyberry, Sparkleflap, Freckles Picklepounce, Master Bumpbump, Melo, Gigglemonkey, Wacky Leroy, and last but definitely not least, Lancelot Whistlethud! A whole whopping 12 winners! Wow! I said a mouthful, didn't I? Well, cant wait to see the election video and can't wait for beta! Bye!

Congratulations to all the winners of the final batch of Alpha Keys! Don't forget to have come cake (without fireworks hopefully) :D

Crazy said on March 14, 2014 at 2:47 PM
Wonderful! Congrats to the winners! Maybe it is a good thing that the election is delayed. More excitement!

Sheriff Peaches Crunchenfish said on March 14, 2014 at 2:49 PM
The anticipation is only making this election more exciting! On top of that, I can only imagine what new content lies ahead in the new game!

Ooowoo said on March 14, 2014 at 2:50 PM
Wow Sir Max has been missing out hasn't he? Well a cake would make Alec feel TOONTASTIC! Stay toontastic! P.S. Don't be wacky - vote for Slappy!

Ginger said on March 14, 2014 at 3:32 PM
Wow, It's good to hear from you, Sir Max! I thought all of you had disappeared! Well, Shockley did, but you get what I mean. BLAH another delay! Oh well, it gives me more of a chance to get a key!!

Gold Mouse Cool Toon said on March 14, 2014 at 3:36 PM
Sir Max, take all the time you need, were all patient, also its been a LONG time since we heard from you, I wondered what happened...

Clover Hulagrooven said on March 14, 2014 at 4:17 PM
You guys are working so hard! I love the new ideas, and just thinking of all the toony things to come I'm happy you get more time to do them properly and not sloppy! Thanks again ttr

Mercy said on March 14, 2014 at 4:58 PM
Welcome back Sir Max! Honestly, though the suspense keeps building and building, I'm totally fine with you guys making another delay. I can appreciate that-- not wanting to present your work until it's just right! And anyways that's just one more day I'm n o t spending hours and hours on TT. ;) Keep it up guys.

Moo said on March 14, 2014 at 5:03 PM

Dottie Twinklepop said on March 14, 2014 at 5:17 PM
Sir Max and the Troopers, in response to your hard work over the last few weeks, I grant you a lifetime supply of pillows! So that you could, you know, rest up after being "literally dead" from fatigue.

I'm sad that the election is delayed, but congrats, Wacky Leroy and Lancelot Whistlethud! I'm so excited from the game to come out!

Doctor Spiffy Twinklecrash said on March 14, 2014 at 7:39 PM
Hmmmm, giant TV screens, and interactive NPCs? Max, you have me intrigued!

Popcorn said on March 14, 2014 at 8:04 PM
I just want to have a big thanks to the staff and team of Toontown Rewritten. You guys have worked really hard on this and you did it all for us. When Toontown Rewritten comes out to the public I will always thank you guys for making this game come back alive again. Thank You! ;)

Jerry said on March 14, 2014 at 9:08 PM
Hello toontown and welcome back....well to tell you the truth I didn't know toontown was closed last year. I got kinda sad when I found out. I knew and played toontown since in was in 3rd grade and I wish to play it again. Good luck on reopening toontown once again. :)

Captain Felix Smartyquack said on March 14, 2014 at 9:12 PM
You guys are so lucky! Use those Alpha Keys to your advantage!(I so wish I was you right now. I seriously need Toontown Rewritten) Once again, congratulation Wacky Leroy & Lancelot Whistlethud!!!

Spell Caster said on March 14, 2014 at 9:28 PM
I congratulate all the winners, and welcome back Sir Max and the troops for coming back to making posts, as well as creating newer ideas and turning them into new content perhaps :D And most importantly, delaying the elections for more suspense and settling the updates to put inside of the game :) Thanks for working on this! So sorry we've been impatient, but hey, the work shall continue. The sooner we get these testings over with the sooner beta will come out and then the full version. :)

Little Foot said on March 14, 2014 at 9:30 PM
About my last comments....so sorry I sounded angry or impatient or whatever at Sir Max and the troopers for extending the election date. It's just that we've been waiting and I totally didn't expect that to happen. Oh well. WELCOME BACK SIR MAX :) I'm saying once again :D Because I cannot WAIT until they start doing daily updates again so we can hurry up and get the game finished :D

Munchkiin2001 said on March 14, 2014 at 10:11 PM
Congrats I hope that they enjoy playing ToonTown Rewritten as much as I will when it comes out for the public.
