The Sellbot Storm
Posted by Lord Lowden Clear on May 21, 2014 at 2:00 PM
Sorry for the interruption, Toons. I'm here to interrupt this giveaway for a special message from the Toon Resistance! Perhaps I should introduce myself first. Lord Lowden Clear's my name, and pieing Cogs is my game.
The Toon Resistance was formed just last month to ensure that these baddies are kept bustling -- with laughter! The Cogs have been getting bolder lately, launching their mega-corporations upon our shops and starting invasions. The problem is: Where have they all been coming from?
Myself and some of our top agents went about trying to answer that very question. While we were stopping by Daisy Gardens, we noticed an increasing number of Sellbots. We traced the cogs all over until finally uncovering evidence of something big, something Toons from all over have been dreading...
Just past the outskirts of Oak Street, we have uncovered a Sellbot HQ.
Those Sellbots have converted the open plains into a fuel-burning, economically unstable, billowing factory of mass production. Not only have they been manufacturing new suits to send out, but the biggest fear of all is the humongous Sellbot Marketing Tower that quite literally towers over the area. The agents and I burst into it, only to be confronted by cameras all around and a bunch of their Goons to escort us out.
The Cogs weren't happy one bit about our discovery. Alarms began blaring, and we sprinted out of there as quick as we could! It didn't do any good, though. The factories were put into full swing, and Skelecogs - Cogs who haven't even finished being built - began pouring down from the skies of Toontown! We can't allow this factory to stand, and even more so the Sellbot Towers where I wouldn't even dare to imagine the colorless and mediocre marketing strategies that are being made inside. This, toons, is where you come in.
I wasn't chosen as leader of the Toon Resistance entirely by my dashing charm, you know! You see, I've been working lately on an invention of mine. An invention known as the Cog Disguise. The problem is that it requires quite a bit of parts to put together, and I only had enough for myself! Toons, we need YOU to Storm Sellbot and get those parts. We need to find a way into Sellbot Towers unnoticed!
I've been passed along a list of new recruits today, although you toons will want to build your laff up a bit before taking on the HQ. Until next time, my dear toons, keep them bustling -- with laughter!

Whether it be new content, bugfixes, or gameplay improvements."
"In a few words, briefly describe what you consider to be the 'look' and 'theme' of Toontown. How could it be made better without drifting away from the original feel of the game?"
1. Sour von McMuffin
Of course, the theme of Toontown would obviously be fun, gags, and giggles! Of course, there are the cogs, too.2. Chistopher
The "look" or "theme" of Toontown is silliness. It could be made better with more silliness and more toontastic toons!3. Lady Roxy
I consider the 'look' and 'theme' of Toontown to be teamwork! You have to work as a team with your fellow toons when you defeat a cog building, fight the vp, and most definitely when you're doing the Lil Oldman toontask ;)4. Princess Melody
I feel that in order to not drift away from the teamwork aspect of the game, we should encourage higher level toons to lend a helping hand and help lower level toons because lets face it, we all start somewhere right?!
To me, the theme of Toontown is a place where toons can have lots of fun by doing "toony" like things. When I say "toony" like things, I mean funny things that one would see on cartoons. I also think that jokes fit in with the theme of "toony." I find the look to be very similar. It is very cartoon like, and has that fun, cheery, and happy look to it.5. Crocodile of Hearts
I think that it could be made better by adding even more funny things to it. Toontown is about fun and funny things (in my point of view). Adding more of that would make Toontown's theme shine even more.
I would describe the look of Toontown as colorful, funny, and fictional. I would describe the theme of Toontown as youthful, magical, and simple. I think Toontown can be made better by making it more HD and by adding in activities and features so that Toontown can be made more enjoyable for everyone so they don't get bored easily.6. Nyarxu
I consider Toontown to be a place where we can all join together to focus on a single objective. Honestly I think the game can't be changed without losing the original feel, this game is so unique that any other change to it would seem wrong.7. Rainbow
Fun and working together were the main things about Toontown, but as I'm sure you know, not many people liked doing the second part. So, it's more of a thing as having fun while helping others.8. Marzvillian
It was hard at times to do DDL tasks when your friends were not online, because most other Toons would not want to help unless you helped them on an array of tasks for three hours. And even then, they would just log off or go get someone else to help them, not helping in return.
I think it could be made a bit better by having jokes whispered once in awhile. The best way to stay in a toontastic mood is with toontastic jokes!
I think the look is how cartoonish the game looks it just captures the attention of most people and they said, "Hey, that looks like an enjoyable game I think I'll try it out!" The theme of Toontown is how silly the game is in a good way. This game really brings out peoples emotions when it comes to this game this game is mainly everyone childhood. So, the theme is the pies, toons, silliness, and the community itself:) . Honestly I think the game couldn't be any better but if I had to choose I would say make the story line a bit longer so like add new cogs or playgrounds just to make us play even longer periods of time!9. Radder Cat
The look of Toontown is very open, it can be whatever it needs to be for a certain scene. The buildings bring life to the streets or make it as if the builds are a family. The random objects around the street corners should probably have eyes as if they are apart of the world too.10. Toon for Life
The theme of TT is for me fantastic, and present a super gameplay with the toon world (with the Disney character like Minie, Mickey...) It's a very good game for all, the child, the old, in my opinion this gameplay can please everyone! TOONTASTIC!11. Cliff Doggenpop
I think that in my opinion Toontown was perfect before it was cancelled.12. Princess Pastel
Well, i really like it!! So far, i can't wait for Toontown Rewritten, i must say its pretty awesome of how they are making the game come back to us!13. Mr. Ubercat
For now they are doing a great job on doing the game again, there's no need to say what would it made it better, but I would say that they could add some new cogs and it will be interesting if they could make voice chat ONLY for your true friends, I don't know if you like that idea but i'm only suggesting it. But I hope everything in the game comes alright! :)
Toontown's theme is just have fun and make friends ( and destroy some cogs in the process >:D. )14. Prof. Sniffy Wonderstink
Hmm... the only thing I could think of that could make Toontown any better than it already is, I'm gonna have to say another boss with a new suit, my last toon was lvl 50 Mr. Hollywood, Robber Baron, Big Wig, and lvl 7 Head Hunter (I miss him so much...) so another boss would be amazing, though very difficult to implement. You guys did add somewhat of a mini-boss in the election which was awesome, but most toons were not able to experience this in person (or should I say in toon hehehe.)
This is about stating our opinions?therefore I?ll state my apologies for the length of this response now. Sorry.
For me, Toontown was always a place to simply go and have fun. We've had a fantastic community since the beginning; and despite the fact that the original Toontown was shut down, this game?s community is still thriving. I know I can?t speak for everyone, but I believe most of us have stuck around for this long because Toontown?s incredible community is something that simply can?t be found anywhere else. Every day we see people offending one another, many unwilling to simply allow bygones to be bygones. I?ve never seen two Toons fight for more than a minute or two; even then it?s likely just a dispute on whether they?d want to do Mini-Golf or go Cart Racing. The ?theme? of Toontown is good will, co-operation, and simply being nice [...] By rewriting Toontown, we've given it back all of the spirit it originally had. Being non-profit only reinforced this 10 fold. Toontown?s ?theme? can?t be spoiled. So kudos to you guys?the Toontown Rewritten Team, and those of us who have stuck with Toontown, no matter how long?for giving this game a second chance, and for it to actually mean something, not just be the tool used to feed corporate interest. Beta key or not, I?ll be supporting this project every step of the way, and cheering for those who do get into Beta. Thanks for listening to my rant guys, and as always, Toons of the World, Unite!

The look and theme of Toontown will be: easy, plot, and silly. The silliness is the toon in Toontown and the story is the town. The fact that it is easy doesn't give a bonus to Toontown's theme. Maybe that is something that can drift away. I heard that cogs are making new and better technology... I think that can make the game a bit more challenging.16. Fluffy Dolphin
Toontown's theme to me is entertaining a lot of people with its creativity and keeping people entertained. To make it better it could use some bug fixes that the original game had and possible a new area that has the theme of the original game.17. McGlidey
The look and feel of Toontown is a great thing, its a fun safe place to kill cogs and get better and better each and every day, its the best game in the Tooniverse. I think maybe you could add new areas to the map just to make the adventure of Toontown bigger and bigger. Keep up the great work of this wonderful game!!18. Ned Pickletooth
I think the main theme of Toontown is teamwork. It's supposed to appeal to all ages and bring them together to accomplish something as a unit. I think the game is fine as it is and nothing can be done to improve this theme.19. Journey
What I consider to be the 'look' of Toontown is Flippy. Flippy is the mascot of Toontown therefore making him the look/symbol of the game.. What I consider to be the 'theme' of Toontown is the cogs. They are the antagonist of the game which we have to destroy.20. Secret Spy
I think the game could be made better without drifting away from the original feel of the game by adding many new additional events to the game, making the gamers not bored of the same old same old.
Some things which make the game better without taking away that feeling of Toontown is looks of toons, adding accessories and new clothing, and maybe add new events.
