ToonFest at OMG!Con - Friday Summary

Posted by The Toontown Team on June 11, 2016 at 6:00 AM

Welcome to the first OMG!Con Daily Update! We are providing updates as often as we can to keep you informed on what's happening here in Owensboro. We'll also be including information about upcoming convention attractions at the end of each post. Without further ado, we give you the first day of ToonFest at OMG!con 2016!



Player Shoutouts!

We've had a busy day here at Toonfest. We've been meeting players from all over the country, and they've been bringing some amazing stuff!
  • Danny, or as he's known in game, Fluffy, brought some amazing paper doodle toys that he made himself.
  • Tyler also brought us some pretty cool stuff, showing off his collection of original Toontown trading cards and he even let us place his Toontown CD Case on display!
  • Daniel, who goes by Min in-game, made some toontastic models of in-game items! His Jellybean Jar Backpack and various gags really blew us away.
  • Josh, or Cool Jeeperflip, also brought in some original Toontown Trading cards and left us dumbfounded by asking us to sign them. What an honor!
A big thank you to all four of these awesome guys who serve as excellent examples of Toon spirit!

Games Galore

In addition to the various Toontown items that have been brought to life, gamers have been experiencing the digital world as well! Players from all walks of life have been logging on to play Toontown together. From gardening, to boss battles, to chatting in Toontown Central, a myriad of attendees have been partaking in the magical experience of playing Toontown in person with players just like them.



The Toontastic Golf Tournament

Towards the end of the evening, attendees competed in a rousing golf tournament. It took some patience, but four players proved that they had what it takes to be the most "Toon Enough" golfers in town. Susie came in first place, Kelly came in second place, Cait came in third place, and Camren came in fourth place. Major props to all of them for taming the rowdy golf balls who refuse to obey the laws of physics.



There are many more competitions to come! The next in-game competition will be a Racing Tournament, which will take place on Saturday from 6 PM to 8 PM. If you haven't yet signed up, make sure you drop by the Toontown Rewritten table in the Video Game Room of the convention center and talk to a staff member.

Ending the Night

To conclude the day, we held a team meet up on the second floor of the convention center. We were privileged to sign a wide array of Toontown related merchandise, answer fan questions, and talk a lot about all things Toontown! It's been a phenomenal experience so far. We are overwhelmed by the love and support from those who play the game and we are eager to discuss all the things we have in store!

What's Coming Up?

We have two panels coming up on Saturday, which is by far the most jam-packed day of the weekend.

  • The first panel is our main event, ToonFest, where we'll talk about upcoming content and having a Q&A session afterward. This panel will take place from 11 AM to 12:30 PM. Check out our YouTube channel shortly after this panel is over.
  • The second panel, Rewriting Toontown: From Players to Game Designers, will feature personal stories from staff members about the beginnings of Toontown Rewritten and piecing together the game that you see today. This panel will take place from 2:30 PM to 3:30 PM.
  • The third major event of the day will test the might of Sir Max's real life alter-ego, Joey, where he will be struck in the face with high quality pies brought in by our players! This will occur shortly after the second panel.
  • The fourth event will be the aforementioned racing tournament, taking place from 6 PM to 8 PM.
Thank you to all the fans who have come out to meet us so far! We'll be at the table bright and early tomorrow, and we can't wait to meet more of you. Make sure to stop on by! To those back home -- we'll see you again soon!

As always, the best of our photos can be found on the Toontown Rewritten Snapchat as well as our social media websites after the weekend is over.
