Daily Alpha Update: Ice-Ape Escape

Posted by Sir Max on November 18, 2013 at 2:00 PM

Hey there, fellas! I'm back once again for the update. Sorry for my absence yesterday, but the police managed to catch up with me. And by catch up to me, I mean I blatantly walked back to the exact location where I stole borrowed the Ice Rink. Now, now- Before you go calling names, let me explain myself.



So I got a call from McQuack yesterday to come inspect the new neighborhood before it was released today. "Oh yeah, no problem!" I say to him. "I'll be there in a few minutes."

I arrived at The Brrrgh, only to find that the entire squadron had me surrounded. I'm sure you all remember back when Hawkheart and I borrowed that Ice Rink. As it turns out, we sort of took it from the construction of the new area. It was a frozen lake in the middle of snowy nothingness. How would I know that it had a major part in the construction of a new playground?

I was taken into Toon HQ and sentenced to a 20 minute timeout, and let me tell you: Those were the hardest 7 minutes of my life. You see, my timeout room was the glass case with all of the fancy science equipment. I started messing around with some chemicals in there, but after I accidentally shrunk McQuack, they made me stop. You think I stopped there? Ohohoho, of course not! See, the Toon HQ was testing their new banana-peeling machine in that same room. I was playing Hide and Seek with the ape inside of it (Which is harder than you think in a 10 x 5 rake-long room), but he threw a fit when he couldn't find me. He slammed through the wall, banana in hand, making a gaping hole for me to slip through.

Now, if you happen to see anyone looking for me, I threw some green paint on the ape who is probably running around causing havoc somewhere. Just point them in his direction, and we'll all be fine!

November 18, 2013 [ttr-alpha-gfe652e1]

Maintenance:
? Minor code cleanup on neighborhoods.

Bugfixes:
? Fix a crash upon entering Toon HQ

Features:
? Laff-o-Dils have bloomed in Daisy Gardens!
? Lighthouse Lane is open for business! Head on over to The Brrrgh- just ignore the big hole in the ice that definitely wasn't stolen by anyone.
? The loading screen has been changed even more to resemble a cartoon intro.
FEEDBACK: What other things can we change to reinforce the idea that Toontown takes place inside of a cartoon?

Seems awesome (:

Sir Bizzenhopper said on November 18, 2013 at 2:09 PM
Haha oh these just keep getting funnier and funnier, and the game keeps getting closer and closer to being done.

Miss Thunderton said on November 18, 2013 at 2:10 PM
Yay the Brrgh! is open <3

super wonderdog said on November 18, 2013 at 2:10 PM
I am sooo exicted for this to be relesed to the puplic.I loved this game.:)

Scooter said on November 18, 2013 at 2:12 PM
Haha, awesome post! :) I am so glad The Brrrgh is open now!

Moon Berry said on November 18, 2013 at 2:13 PM
Ooh, boy. Just let me ask a question: Did McQuack regain his size?

Marcy said on November 18, 2013 at 2:15 PM
Nicely done! TTR is rly coming along fast! :D

Prof. Max Poppenzap said on November 18, 2013 at 2:21 PM
YES! THANK YOU!! I WAS WAITING FOR THIS!!! I LOVE THE BRRRGH!!!! KEEP IT UP!!!!!

Colonel Bonzo said on November 18, 2013 at 2:22 PM
I always loved the Brrrgh, Then came 'Lil Oldman...... but when i get past him I like the Brrrgh again!

Little Foot said on November 18, 2013 at 2:26 PM
I'm freeeeeezinnngg in the Brrrgh over here... please open up the game so I can move to another place!

Loopy WhiskerPaw said on November 18, 2013 at 2:26 PM
Toon HQ and the Brrrgh?! Yay!

Coolbro said on November 18, 2013 at 2:29 PM
I can't wait to play toontown rewritten! Thank you for all the updates!!!

McWoof said on November 18, 2013 at 2:32 PM
2 days ago was Donalds Dock, yesterday was Daisy Gardens, now today is The Brrrgh!! You guys are amazing! You guys are AMAZING!!!

Seashell Leaf said on November 18, 2013 at 2:35 PM
TBrrrgh! I love that!

Huigberts said on November 18, 2013 at 2:37 PM
The updates are every day better, I think Donalds Dreamland would be a cool new neighborhood. And I can't say it too much, I can't wait for the beta version.

Splurge said on November 18, 2013 at 2:39 PM
This was surprisingly creative. I didn't know you could make a story THIS good!

Amy said on November 18, 2013 at 2:47 PM
This is awesome! LOL. I really just want this game to come to the public, I have been playing toontown since it came out and i am so happy to see someone make it again

Prince Fireball said on November 18, 2013 at 2:48 PM
FEEDBACK: Maybe something to spice up the map and the Toonbook (Shticker Book) icon.

twiddlegoober said on November 18, 2013 at 2:51 PM
lol thats cool

said on November 18, 2013 at 2:51 PM
hmm maybe make the sticker book with a comic book?

McPop said on November 18, 2013 at 2:54 PM
When starting up Toontown (either intro screen before choose which toon you want to play or log in screen) you could have a tv frame.

Rainbow Berry said on November 18, 2013 at 2:59 PM
Yay! A new playground! You guys are toontastic. FEEDBACK: Hmm... well, I don't have anything in mind... you can do anything you want that makes Toontown even more toony and toontastic. Sorry if I'm not much of a help. :)

Flipper said on November 18, 2013 at 3:00 PM
I can't wait until this game is released! So excited!

Weird Cricket said on November 18, 2013 at 3:01 PM
We can always...... I dont know i got nothing. maybe add more cartoonish looks, sounds.

Crimson said on November 18, 2013 at 3:05 PM
Woohoo! Just to spend an icy winter in the Brrrgh for awhile! What a dream!

Pearl Fuzzyberry said on November 18, 2013 at 3:06 PM
Feedback: You should make the star on top of your head when you defeat lots of buildings more animated.

King BananaSprinkles said on November 18, 2013 at 3:08 PM
That is one of the funniest updates ever! :) Can't wait till it opens to the public.

Prince Tricky said on November 18, 2013 at 3:14 PM
When you log-out or exit from the game, do a That's All Folks message on the screen.

Captainfire101 said on November 18, 2013 at 3:14 PM
You guys are so creative with your storys,cant wait for toontown rewritten to release alpha :D

bonnie said on November 18, 2013 at 3:15 PM
Oh boy! Cant wait! It looks like toontown rewritten will be opened very soon! Keep up the good work as allways!

Sir Dynamite said on November 18, 2013 at 3:16 PM
Magnificent! Beta will be out in NO time at this rate! You guys are working incredibly fast. Keep it up!

Silly Trixie said on November 18, 2013 at 3:16 PM
Well, you already have an entrance in the beginning of the game. "(name) starring in..." Why not have an exit when logging off or selecting another toon to play? In the old cartoons there was the "That's all folks!" Why not create something similar like that?

Chester said on November 18, 2013 at 3:19 PM
Having to ask which cartoon was your toon in before going to toontown, and show it on your toon status.

Misty said on November 18, 2013 at 3:20 PM
I think that the buildings should have window eyes and door mouths. If you know Roger Rabbit, it must be familiar. I hope you take it into consideration. Nice update by the way. Tomorrow you should do the Chip n' Dale's Acorn Acres.

Mecha Soniic said on November 18, 2013 at 3:23 PM
Ha! Love how you tell the story of these updates. And also: Will you add Chip and Dales Acorn Acres soon? That was one of my favorite places to visit :D Keep it up!!!

Katzdoodle said on November 18, 2013 at 3:23 PM
FEEDBACK: What other things can we change to reinforce the idea that Toontown takes place inside of a cartoon? You should try to make make cutsences and, maybe make a old tv, or a toony frame to frame the screen while you are playing.

Spike WildFlapper said on November 18, 2013 at 3:30 PM
FEEDBACK: Toontastic Jokes, of course!

Flame said on November 18, 2013 at 3:30 PM
Maybe Toontown should take place as a cartoon show of some sort, or maybe a movie (like Who Framed Roger Rabbit) of some type!

The Great Blue Mouse said on November 18, 2013 at 3:39 PM
Cool! One of my favorite neighborhoods is finally open! Here's a suggestion: maybe we can turn the buildings that say the knock-knock jokes into TALKING buildings that say the knock-knock jokes! And they could laugh after they say them!

Raven Smartygoose said on November 18, 2013 at 3:42 PM
Reinforce the idea that Toontown takes place inside of a cartoon? How about have a mode in the settings that makes the game black and white! That would be awesome

King Caterpie said on November 18, 2013 at 3:52 PM
You guys are AMAZING. Pumping out updates like a boss, keep up the good work!

Spike said on November 18, 2013 at 3:58 PM
In my opinion, Toontown IS inside of a cartoon and should have more interaction in the playgrounds that would be shown just on the own toon's screen who did it. For example a lever or buttons. (Maybe inside Toon Hall or somewhere NEW)

Miss Marry said on November 18, 2013 at 3:59 PM
I hope one day they will allow white toons (maybe as a present in December :o)

Techno said on November 18, 2013 at 4:03 PM
You could reinforce the idea by adding all the kooky songs and whacky animations and then some. Some crazy moves you can't see in real life will ensure it's a cartoon. I can't wait for the public release of this game!

CrazyDustySpackleGoober said on November 18, 2013 at 4:15 PM
I really thought MML would open before the brrrrgh.

Fireball said on November 18, 2013 at 4:26 PM
maybe there should a black and white day. Like a day to seem like everything is a old cartoon. Maybe also to show that toontown is in cartoon is that there are shout bubbles when someone is using all caps.

Gwen's Hero said on November 18, 2013 at 4:27 PM
We are all so haappppyyyy :D Toontastic job everyone!

captaindominooctobutger said on November 18, 2013 at 4:33 PM
yay!!! the brrrrgh

Princess Hulabee said on November 18, 2013 at 4:40 PM
Feedback: Comic book type things (maybe as the schticker book), bright colors that don't give you a headache, and unrealistic curving objects such as the things on the TTR website (:

Victoria said on November 18, 2013 at 4:57 PM
I have been playing Toon Town FOREVER I tell you and I was UPSET when it closed thank you for bringing it back!!!! I LOVE you! But I think (DONALDS DREAMLAND) should open but I don't care it only matters that you finish it and I will be so happy thanks so much!

Rainbow Junior said on November 18, 2013 at 5:01 PM
I am very impressed with how fast TTR is coming together. It blows me away, literally! Can I suggest a playground? How about Chip And Dales Acorn Acres? Please? Well, I don't mind really but, I always liked just relaxing and taking strolls in the ''nature'' when I was bored in Toontown. FEEDBACK: Hmmm... more cartoon animations? I don't know. Sorry if I'm not that helpful.

Exclusive said on November 18, 2013 at 5:06 PM
Awesome job cant wait to playy!

Vee said on November 18, 2013 at 5:07 PM
FEEDBACK: What other things can we change to reinforce the idea that Toontown takes place inside of a cartoon? Remember the old launcher where it showed how "robots" came to be? Make a 3-5 minute short on how a cartoonist is trying to make different cartoons, but gets flustrated, and throws all his ideas away, including ToonTown. Then Flippy (who is crumpled up thrown away on a piece of paper) pops from the paper and shocks the artist. He then sees hope with this cartoon and so Flippy helps him draw out ToonTown, and jumps into the world. :D Just my idea.

Exclusive said on November 18, 2013 at 5:09 PM
Feedback: when toons are hit by cogs make stars appear and circle around their heads

DogMan said on November 18, 2013 at 5:09 PM
This game was childhood, at least this game is being taken into the hands of those who care, can't wait for this game!

yotoma said on November 18, 2013 at 5:16 PM
i was in tears when it closed. you people are my heroes i can't thank you enough!

Zowie O. said on November 18, 2013 at 5:17 PM
You should change Entering... from the loading screen after select-a-toon to "ToonTown Rewritten" so it would say "(Toon Name) starring in ToonTown Rewritten!"

Little Dottie said on November 18, 2013 at 5:32 PM
Feedback: Maybe when you enter Toontown, you could put a short intro movie of Toontown Rewritten and for people who get bored of it they could disable it in their shticher book settings. So that when new people to toontown they realize the concept of the game and the idea of it! Also you could make the world more colorful and replace the Disney character to others. Thanks, I hope this helped! New Content: Can you please add the Merry-go-round to Minnie Melody Land? Also could you guys put the tips in the loading screen? Thanks bye!

Baron Thunderboom said on November 18, 2013 at 5:34 PM
I have a feeling that the cog's are plotting something sinister, they wont let us toons have too long of a vacatioin

Princess Rainbow Lemonslam said on November 18, 2013 at 6:08 PM
You guys are amazing! Can't wait for the final two, and to hopefully get a key soon! Thank you guys so much, you have no idea how happy you're making a ton of people, y'all are incredible

Deputy Poppy Nickelhopper said on November 18, 2013 at 6:13 PM
FEEDBACK: You could make the animations (And I'm talking about all of them, not the emotions) Look more like they are in a cartoon.

Superspeedy Fireball said on November 18, 2013 at 6:22 PM
Don't worry about the toon council, Max-you should worry more about Disney!

Amnesia said on November 18, 2013 at 6:30 PM
Your version of Toontown sounds better then Toontown House. Keep up the good work.

Dr.Cat said on November 18, 2013 at 6:36 PM
I think we should customize our sticker book. I mean it will be with us for the rest of our toon life so I think it would be a bit cool to see and do. we could also be able to by stuff from the cattle log. :)

Sir Dudley Crinkleflap said on November 18, 2013 at 6:50 PM
FEEDBACK: Maybe change small details on the street or even in buildings on the street, just to give it that extra touch.

RIddles said on November 18, 2013 at 6:56 PM
I look forward to reading these each day, so funny. And making good progress. I'm so excited! :)

Jordan said on November 18, 2013 at 7:06 PM
I think you should change the emotions name to animations. I also think you should add new accessories (by that, i mean like for your neck and arm and stuff like that)

Itzubowtyme said on November 18, 2013 at 7:23 PM
I thinks it's amazing what you guys are doing for all of us, Toontown was and still is my favorite online game. I've been doing research and it seems Disney may have closed Toontown due to the obsessive hacking and behavioral issues. It would be really nice if you could look into these problems... I for one would be relieved to find a more safe experience and, frankly, the annoyance, I and many others could do without. I apologize if you have already looked into this and I look forward to the release of your beta! :) Toons of the World Unite! ;D

mr.shkiddle hopper said on November 18, 2013 at 7:29 PM
its AMAZING how you guys do updates like this every day, and thanks so much for bringing back this wonderful game!

Princess Ginger said on November 18, 2013 at 7:42 PM
I thought about Who Framed Roger Rabbit... It's been a while since I've seen that movie, but you could definitely draw inspiration from there. Maybe interactive objects would help it though... like maybe the lampposts in DDL sleeptalk? I dunno. But I do think that even just making things more animated would make it more cartoon-y.

Rosa said on November 18, 2013 at 8:44 PM
Feedback: I think that the furniture in our house that we buy from the cattlelog could be interacted with. For example, when we click on a painting, it could swing from side to side or come to life. I also think that when you get more jellybeans your bank would get bigger and bigger. First bank: Small, Second bank, medium, third bank, large, fourth bank, small vault, etc. Hope you like my ideas! :)

Tyman said on November 18, 2013 at 9:03 PM
I have a suggestion to make toontown more cartoonish. Maybe you could change the theme music to the theme music of some of the old color Mickey Mouse cartoons.

Tom McTeeth said on November 18, 2013 at 9:39 PM
I hope we catch that ape. Who knows what havoc it could cause in the opening of the new neighborhoods! The stories are great and make me laugh, so please keep on telling them. They are quite creative and tie in well with the updates. To make the game cartoony, the sticker book could be a comic book, Toontasks can be "episodes" to complete a "season" (completing a neighborhood), and the loading screens, instead of a blue screen, could show the street/playground/area, starting out as a black-and-white line sketch and slowly transitioning into the colorful place we will enter as the location loads.

Cuddles McFlipper said on November 18, 2013 at 10:02 PM
I love reading these updates, this one made me crack up so much that I nearly cried. You guys are awesome! Can't wait for this awesomeness to be released to the public! -Cuddles

Red Midnight said on November 19, 2013 at 12:38 AM
So excited for this to be released to the public :)

Christmas said on November 19, 2013 at 1:05 AM
This is actually getting me really hyped for the complete project. All of you guys are doing a great job. Keep at it!

Ritzer said on November 19, 2013 at 1:35 AM
Feedback: Changing the gag sounds to sound more cartoony, it's the minor details the matter.

Good ol' Alvin said on November 19, 2013 at 2:44 AM
I have an idea for how to make the game seem like it's in a cartoon. It's a small thing but it helps the atmosphere. If you animate the sun, it will feel a bit more like a cartoon. Also I'm so greatful that you guys are making the game. :D

Bismouth said on November 19, 2013 at 3:45 AM
Wow! So quick! I love the Brrrgh! I can't wait to play the game! Thanks so much!

Baron Von Thunderthud said on November 19, 2013 at 4:02 AM
Make sure that everything is as wacky as possible! Adding little easter eggs where if you know the story is great! Keep some of these holes and things, so if you know the story, It's even better. Add more and various music, and this will way better! Great job TTR Devs!

Dr.BananaSplitz said on November 19, 2013 at 4:32 AM
My research has shown that Minnie's melody land is next

Little MoMo Funnyspeed said on November 19, 2013 at 5:47 AM
The Brrrgh is my favorite playground :D

Good ol' Jake Pumpkinbumper said on November 19, 2013 at 6:20 AM
Next, I vote Chip n' Dale's Acorn Acres, as for the feedback, I would like to have Cog Nation and The Chairman.

Autoridade Chip Dexterburger said on November 19, 2013 at 6:39 AM
OMG, this is an amazing surprise! I really need toontown right now! Can you guys tell me when the game open for us?

Good Ol' Fireball said on November 19, 2013 at 7:32 AM
Can you make the website something like the other? Plus, Make Sellbot HQ!

Mew Shall Not Pass said on November 19, 2013 at 8:29 AM
Sounds amazing! I can't wait for it.

Pj said on November 19, 2013 at 8:31 AM
To make it sound more like cartoon you could do some music like in looney tunes,with the circles around the toons head. :3 I can provide you some music, if you want.

Sally said on November 19, 2013 at 8:38 AM
It would be cool to see the speech bubbles change a little. Maybe when you type something with and exclamation mark you can change it to "scream bubbles," instead of a regular one.

Daring Do said on November 19, 2013 at 8:45 AM
Keep the good work people I'm loving these updates!

Princess Lily said on November 19, 2013 at 11:22 AM
Maybe if you can, go back to the classic openings of Disney cartoons where you have your toon's face and it says (using mine for example) "Princess Lily in Toontown" or something like that, maybe revert back to some old cartoon features :)

Sweet Angel said on November 19, 2013 at 12:36 PM
Nicely done!!Lol,these updates are getting better, and better, and you all working on the game are getting closer and closer to being done!! :)

Princess Dani said on November 19, 2013 at 1:03 PM
Nice job guys! Next I think you should add Minnie's playground, since that is the only way you can get to Donald's Dreamland. Keep up the good work! ~Princess Dani

Master Fireball said on November 19, 2013 at 1:12 PM
My gosh! A new playground everyday means this game should be up by Christmas I hope! The brrrgh at Christmas time is to me magical and relaxing. Also, (obvious joke incoming) SNOWSTORMCEPTION!

Cool Clyde Rewritten said on November 19, 2013 at 1:14 PM
Oh Max, stop getting yourself in trouble, will you? Just kidding! That makes everything funnier!

Mr Awesome said on November 19, 2013 at 1:54 PM
FEEDBACK: maybe make the images move more cartoony, like it is gliding while running in place, then make tweaks to that to fit toons and the world in toontown (since you are building the world right now, you're already in that mood)

Jaden said on November 19, 2013 at 1:59 PM
This game is getting better and better! Without Sir Max, I wouldn't get excited like this before! Keep up the good work! :)

Galaxy said on November 19, 2013 at 2:15 PM
Wow your doing an excellent job on the game! Im so excited for it to come out!

mariangel said on November 19, 2013 at 2:18 PM
i don't get it you put a hard working task place open when you bring all the easy places.

Master Dudley Thunderwhip said on November 19, 2013 at 2:51 PM
I think you should add film strips somewhere. Not sure on exact placement or graphics but I think they should be there for the cartoon-ish feel.

Rhubarb Fuzzyberry said on November 19, 2013 at 3:11 PM
The loading screen could have a new section in it where it has a black and white spinner counting down to 0, just before it loads. IDK how to describe it, but it's on some old movies and cartoons. Great work on adding a new neighborhood!

Rhubarb Fuzzyberry said on November 19, 2013 at 3:16 PM
:O Do you think you could make the Lil' Oldman task just a wee bit easier???? I got kinda tired of doing 500 buildings... (I still can't figure out why they said that a task for a level 5 building was for a 5+ building... O_o) Once again, you guys wrote an excellent story, and I can't wait for the next one!

Colonal Oscar said on November 19, 2013 at 3:20 PM
I think you guys are having great progress! I am going to be very happy when it gets into beta! My guess is that your almost 90% done with alpha! Keep going!

Colonal Oscar said on November 19, 2013 at 3:22 PM
Seems like its going to be out very soon! Its probably going to be a lot like toontown!

Fluffytail said on November 19, 2013 at 6:52 PM
Yes! Thank you! O: (Sorry for so many comments, I'm just so excited for the release) You guys are doing so well and improving quickly! c: Amazing job! <3

Cuckoo said on November 20, 2013 at 3:09 AM
Maybe at black and white characters to fit it more like a cartoon? That would be neat!

Ms. Dawn said on November 20, 2013 at 3:25 AM
You can use 3rd or add a new boss. Watching cartoons battle is always fun. Keep in mind to do things that keep your community good. Bosses will make playing toontown more exciting.

Weird Teddy said on November 20, 2013 at 7:39 AM
My idea to make TTR more a Cartoon, you should put black outlines around the toons to make them seem like they were drawn.

Zinjer Zullon said on November 20, 2013 at 9:40 AM
Feedback: Maybe a ew toon type!!! I'm thinking of either a cw, Zebra, bull, rat Krokadyle, Aligater, penguin, squids, octopusie, platupie, walruses, pandas, wolf's, foxes, llamas, or a owl

Gold Mouse Cool Toon said on November 20, 2013 at 1:24 PM
For some Feedback I say add more 2d flat cartoony characteristics to our 3d toons. Such as maybe an emote for rabbits where their ears can turn around like a helicopter propeller. Maybe mice have a emote where they can pull out cheese. Or maybe cats pull out yarn. Better yet... Maybe one extra specific emote for each type of toon animal! That would be awesome TTR team!

little boo boo said on November 20, 2013 at 1:46 PM
Wow! you guys doing awesome!

Aunt Sally said on November 20, 2013 at 2:41 PM
Maybe to make the game more cartoon-like, they can have tails? If not maybe new clothing or accessories. Or maybe some new designs for gags or buildings. I know I'm saying a lot but heres my last one: What if we can bring doodles with us? Like maybe in a backpack or on a leash, it would be something really cool to do!

A Toon said on November 20, 2013 at 3:20 PM
FEEDBACK: Instead of the "toon tips" (if there are any), put them in a TV instead of on a scroll!

Kopi The Kitten said on November 21, 2013 at 6:02 AM
Answer to Feedback: Make the districts "Channels"! For instance, The Crazy Channel, The Nutty Channel, The Toon Channel.

Miss fluffy said on November 24, 2013 at 10:21 AM
Looks like you didn't get around with that ice rink....
