Launching the Ludicrous Linux Launcher

Posted by Fat McStink on January 3, 2015 at 3:30 PM

Do you know what day it is? Don't worry, no one else remembered either, but that's okay.

I haven't been able to pursue my passion for Party Planning since the Greatest Parties in the Tooniverse got put on hold for a while, but that doesn't bring my spirits down. They'll be back, and hopefully soon, because: It's my Birthday!



On my last Birthday, my pal Muddy Paws made my party better with this sweet Apple (Pie) Launcher that helped a lot of Toons make their way into Toontown. I wanted to again contribute to Toonkind like I did last year, so I opened up this dictionary that my new friend Flapjack gave me to see what I could find.

Inside, I found all sorts of weird words. Linux? Kernel? Debian? Ubuntu? Computer? I don't know what they mean, but they sure are fun to say! I talked to Hawkheart about it, he rambled on about some sort of weird new Launcher of sorts he has been working on and, well, the rest is now history.

To put it simply: for the first time in history, Toontown is now available on all popular distributions of Linux.

If you have a Linux installation, head over to the Play page and download the new launcher now! We also have a special update for Windows users, and plenty of awesome new things planned to start the New Year off right by making Toontown the best it's ever been. You won't want to miss what us Toon Troopers have in store.

Thanks for stopping by, and hey -- I'll make sure I send you an invite to my next big party. It's gonna be off the charts!
