Backstage: A Peek at Our Plan

Posted by The TTR Team on November 21, 2016 at 2:00 PM

Welcome to our latest Backstage column, where we talk about the inside scoop behind the scenes of Toontown! We've got a lot to cover in this update, which will hopefully give you some insight of what we've been working on and what to expect from Toontown over the next few months.

Toontown's Substantial Support

Ever since we launched Toontown Rewritten, it's been growing at rates we never expected. Even as population dwindles during busy times of the year, we're hitting numbers that we never expected to see when first launching the game!

Hitting 1,000,000 registered players over the summer, which has now grown to over 1,100,000 players in just a few short months, was a slap in the face to us that we were growing a little too big a little too fast! A lot of our systems, structure, and even our website have been around since alpha and are in desperate need of an overhaul to handle this growth.

We've switched gears to stop attracting new players for now until those systems are ready. The lower population isn't a consequence, but an expected result of this. We know that with the amazing game that is Toontown, there will always be support and potential to grow.

Our Objective

Before we get into our plan, we need to clarify our goal: Above all else, we're building Toontown to last. We're doing a lot of behind the scenes work to make sure that our end game goal isn't to end the game. And with that, you'll be happy to hear that Toontown has no plans of closing in the foreseeable future -- in fact, we're working to do the opposite.

It's hard to see from the outside, but internally we consider 2016 to be Toontown Rewritten's most successful year ever. Our social media pages have more than doubled in size, our 2016 convention was absolutely enormous compared to years past, and of course we had the massive achievement of 1,000,000 registered players!

Both the Toontown Rewritten Team and Toontown Online's creator, Jesse Schell, share the same goal of proving to Disney that Toontown has a very valuable future. Your excitement and support throughout the years, as players, has already proven that to us!

These are all things that you may not see on the outside, but we're seeing very clearly on the inside. And admittedly, we wish that we had shared these details with you sooner so that you can see where all of our excitement stems from. Of all of the years we've been running Toontown Rewritten, we've never been more confident in the game than we have been in 2016.

For 2017, however, we're switching back to the focus that most of you have been asking for: A focus on the game itself rather than building up the community outside of it.

Presenting the Plan

Over the past month, we spent a lot of our time with many meetings and figuring out what we need to do to move the game forward. We realized that we stumbled with the weight of ToonFest, and now it's time to put Toontown on a hardcore exercise plan to tone our muscles and lift some heavier weights. We aren't going to the Squash & Stretch Gym for it, either.

This is not our exact to-do list, but a general list of what we've been up to and what to expect for the next few months as we work towards this effort. Toontown will start getting significantly more active than it has been this month now that we've finished these discussions, but we ask you to bear with us as we do a lot of tidying up around town before moving back to new content!

  • October:
    In October our focus was set on repairing ToonFest, along with our Halloween update. It was in this effort that we decided to take time in November to figure out our internal organization.
  • November:
    A great deal of internal planning occurred, where we've reworked some of our outdated services and started reworking our internal tools to replace the outdated alpha leftovers. Astron, our server architecture, has been receiving a lot of love recently over on GitHub -- if you're a programmer, we would love to have you help us out with that! Artists have been working on the next stage of the species election, which is coming up soon.

    We will be releasing the ToonFest items this Friday until the end of November, and then putting ToonFest to an end for this year. While many ToonFest features are incredibly near completion, we have decided to drop our focus on that to speed up our rebuilding process. Any unreleased content will be saved for next year's celebration - we're sorry for any disappointments on that front!
  • December:
    Focus over the next few months will be set on major game patches to fix any instability, broken features, and general bugs that make the game weak. We'll also of course have our Christmas update as we do every year, which always brings a lot of fun content to celebrate with over your winter break!
  • January:
    Continuing with our bugfixes and patches, we'll also be fixing up some early-game content to make it more accessible to new players. We've found that people who haven't played Toontown before have a really hard time getting the hang of it! We haven't forgotten about our long-term players who need a refresher, though -- we'll be seeing what we can do for you too.
  • 2017 Onwards:
    After the focus of expanding our outreach in 2016, we're going to be spending a major effort to push Toontown out of beta in 2017. That means we're looking at complete polish, restoring the original game features, and relaunching our brand in a way that shows we have a whole new outlook moving forward.

As you can imagine, moving the game out of beta is a big task and requires a lot of work behind the scenes. We're focused on giving you an experience in Toontown that will be worth playing for years to come, and all we ask from you is a bit of patience as we take the time to do it!

It may seem stale without any major updates, but we've witnessed that when we try to release new content without reworking ourselves we get not quite the product we were hoping for, which is what happened with ToonFest.

Moving Forward Faster

Toontown will be changing a lot over the next few months, and we know that at times you may be confused with what we're doing and why. Moving forward, we'll be doing our best to increase communication with you so you know exactly what's going on.

It will take some time for us to rev up our engines again, but trust us when we say that the passion is nowhere near lost. If you're able to give us a bit of patience, a lot of support, and some suggestions along the way -- then this time next year Toontown will be as shiny as a brand new car!

We hope that this gives you much better insight as to what we've been doing behind the scenes here at Toontown. We'll be doing our best to keep you informed, entertained, and all around in the loop-de-loop!

Melody said on November 21, 2016 at 4:01 PM
This is great news. I'm more than willing to wait for these new changes and honestly, it's good to hear something from you guys though I understand why you've been off the radar. Keep up thee good work! We're rooting for you!

Ned Sourfuddy said on November 21, 2016 at 4:12 PM
Hopefully, these updates will prove to the world that there is still something of value in Toontown Rewritten.

May said on November 21, 2016 at 4:14 PM
I want to thank you for all the amazing work you guys have done ^^. Toontown is better than ever and it's nice to be closer to the people who create it, rather than it just being "those people". On another note... the images of the new species look awesome!

Little Tom Jabbermonkey said on November 21, 2016 at 4:23 PM
Thank you so much TTR Team! You have my full support. <3

Trombone said on November 21, 2016 at 4:26 PM
Wow! I can't wait to hear great things from you all, and of course I'll be remaining patient and always here for support. Can you start accepting names more frequently though? Even name changes, that's the only thing grinding my gears. And all the crashing but don't worry! I know you'll fix that

Sora said on November 21, 2016 at 4:43 PM
This is too much.. but I love it so much.. I have faith in you TTR Team!!

Oh thank goodness, this was 100% needed. I was worried as heck about the lack of an active community. Thank you so so much for this update. I believe in you guys :D

Little Robin Electromew said on November 21, 2016 at 5:22 PM
Keep it up you guys, take breaks when you need it, and most of all, take your time! Don't think "oh, they're excited. Let's rush!" No no no no! Breaks! Pace yourself!

Shadow said on November 21, 2016 at 5:48 PM
I'm really excited to not have the game crash all the time! That will be my favorite update! It sounds sarcastic but I mean it in the most sincere way possible! Thanks toontown staff!

Super Stinky Fuzzy Monkey said on November 21, 2016 at 5:52 PM
Wait last year, alpha moved to beta because of doomsday, oh doomsday might come again YASSS!!

Cant wait for the pets to be restored keep up the good work :)

Alfonzo said on November 21, 2016 at 5:56 PM
I played this game as a child with my older brother. We were both heartbroken when ToonTown shut down in 2013. But thanks to you, Alfonzo can live once again and fight off those dastardly Cogs.

Queen Lunesta said on November 21, 2016 at 6:00 PM
There are always bumps in the road in a long drive such as this one, and I think most if not all of us players understand that not everything goes as planned. We will always be rooting for the TTR support team to continue to bring TTO to its former glory, and we appreciate everything you have done up until now. Thank you for keeping us updated and thank you for working so hard!

Toon said on November 21, 2016 at 6:13 PM
Okay. Well, I wish you a lotta luck in fixing up so much before going back to making new content. We believe in you, TTR Team!

felicity said on November 21, 2016 at 6:37 PM
I know you are working hard to make toontown rewritten better ty so much keep up the good work

Hareless said on November 21, 2016 at 6:48 PM
Haha! Can't wait ^^! I'm so happy your team has recreated Toontown, I really lost hope that anyone would establish another toontown after it shut down. Can't forget the dancing mailboxes, either. <3

Sparkletoon said on November 21, 2016 at 6:50 PM
Thank you, TTR Team, so much for all the hard work you do to keep this wonderful game alive! I'm super excited about the results of the Species Election, and I'm sure that ToonTown will do nothing but grow! :D

Lightfall said on November 21, 2016 at 6:51 PM
13 days of waiting to hear exciting things! #HypeForToontownOutOfBeta! I'll give patience as much as I can, but I hope that I don't go insane~

Amika said on November 21, 2016 at 6:52 PM
Can't wait to see what you add and fix! you're already doing such a wonderful job keeping the game alive!!! Thank you!!!

You all are AWESOME! Thanks for all your hard work on this. I have fond memories of playing Original TT with my kids and have had some fun on TTR with my younger two. Thanks again.

Sir Loopy Thunderpow said on November 21, 2016 at 8:45 PM
They cancelled ToonFest ;-; Oh well. At least they'll be focusing on more important things. All I want are Field Offices!

Moe said on November 21, 2016 at 8:45 PM
Thank you guys so much for always working hard to bring us quality entertainment. It is much appreciated. And you're right! Disney doesn't understand the wonderfulness of Toontown. Looking forward to the upcoming plans! Can't wait!

Metallicat said on November 21, 2016 at 8:46 PM
Thank you for updating us on information. I really hope y'all fix the crashes in the game. That's the only thing that bothers me and probably everyone else the most. Keep up the good work! I'm so excited for the new updates!

Hamlin said on November 21, 2016 at 9:01 PM
Wow! I am so excited for this to happen! I want my toon to be toonfest blue so bad! :)

Doctor Featherquack said on November 21, 2016 at 9:08 PM
Wow! So much fun in store. Can't wait until you get ready to roll out the doodles. Keep up the good work!

Lucky said on November 21, 2016 at 9:19 PM
I can't imagine how difficult it must be to do this stuff. Keep up the hard work and maybe ask about donations? It may just be me, but I feel bad that you put in so much work for us and we don't repay you. Regardless, keep going strong.

Cool said on November 21, 2016 at 9:34 PM
Awesome. Can't wait for the bug fixes and this new focus! Thanks for expressing yourselves and being open and honest! It really means a lot to me.

AwareRudy AKA Bear! said on November 21, 2016 at 10:00 PM
I cannot wait! Many people in the community constantly complain of TTR but I knew you guys weren't slacking off, finally TTR will be tided up!

Crazy Dynamite said on November 21, 2016 at 11:01 PM
You guys are REALLY passionette, which is awesome!! :D I wish you guys the best of luck! Let's make Toontown amazing!!

Jinxtoon said on November 22, 2016 at 3:22 AM
Your total update on the goings-on is much appreciated. Thank you TTR for working so hard to bring us all a free family-themed game just so that we Toons can have fun, make friends, and clean up TTR streets. Let's go get those COGS!!!!!

Little Boo Boo Cuddlemuffin said on November 22, 2016 at 3:37 AM
I wonder how much tokens the prizes will be.. XD

Philmont said on November 22, 2016 at 3:51 AM
That's absolutely awesome guys! Keep up the great work and when I read how much it had grown, my eyes almost bugged out of my head! From when it was beta to this, definitely some pretty big improvement. Thanks for making toontown better for all players!!! :D

Poveylion said on November 22, 2016 at 3:53 AM
Omg all the updates sound GREAT

Anita Banana said on November 22, 2016 at 4:22 AM
Don't want to seem rude but Toonfest WAS a big disappointment. Nearly waited 2 months to find out we finally get the toonfest items and then it's gone til next year! I do have high hopes for next year and I hope you guys keep bringing some sort of new content to the game.

Bluestar said on November 22, 2016 at 5:49 AM
So glad I started playing again. It's been a few months, but I'm ready to see what's in store! :)

Brooke said on November 22, 2016 at 6:15 AM
I'm beyond excited for the new updates and all of the Toonfest prizes. Thank you guys for all your hard work and dedication!

Does this mean that the pet shops will be fixed aswell?

Penelop said on November 22, 2016 at 7:24 AM
Awesome update, guys! We love the game, and really appreciate all of your hard work on it!

Nana said on November 22, 2016 at 7:27 AM
Please to hear of your commitment to continuing TT. Thank you.

Bob said on November 22, 2016 at 7:34 AM
In addition to the patches and such, will there be any new features coming in Alpha such as a new playground, etc.?

Iris said on November 22, 2016 at 7:35 AM
Thanks for working so hard for all of us! Everything sounds amazing!

Crazy Banana Bonkers said on November 22, 2016 at 7:36 AM
Thank you for the update, TTR team! TBH, we have been very privileged to be able to play Toontown on TTR with new features and events happening now than we ever had before. I have also been happy with support, though I realize we may not have immediate turnaround with support but hey, it's still good enough from a great team on a beta platform. In my opinion, it's understandable that there are delays on Toonfest prizes, esp. with Halloween in the same month and with so many other things that are being programmed behind-the-scenes at the same time. Having been a programmer myself, I know the workload for tests, bug fixes and retests can take up a lot of time and effort. Just want to say I am grateful for TTR and hey, a short wait is really not that big of a deal as long as the game keeps going. I'm so looking forward to the new things that are coming. Thanks!

Deputy Skipper Blubbersocks said on November 22, 2016 at 7:38 AM
wow! toonfest coming to an end, 2016 coming to an end. toonfest doors will finally open, and guess what? its not 2020! welp, time to get millions of tokens because im fresh out of them on pies!

Sir Monkey Business said on November 22, 2016 at 7:44 AM
This is exciting news! Thank you for putting in the effort to make a new species of toon and also, moving out of beta into production! TTR is going to be better than ever. Cant wait to see all these coming to the computers near us! Cheers to the team!

Jellyshine said on November 22, 2016 at 7:55 AM
Please get the chicken its so cute!

Angelina said on November 22, 2016 at 7:56 AM
Yay :) the ToonFest prizes are finally going to be released. I'm excited to see what new content you guys are creating.

Brittney said on November 22, 2016 at 8:03 AM
Oh boy! I've been wondering when I'd get to spend all these tokens, but I'm also excited for the species elections too! Oh sweet toony taffy, this is gonna be great! :D

Reggie Crumbleberry said on November 22, 2016 at 8:16 AM
Toontoown Rewritten, I hope that you keep moving ahead. You guys keep doing what you do, and continue to make Toontown better than ever. You guys are great, and someday I hope to be like you. Good luck, and GREAT game! -Reggie Crumbleberry of Pastel Plains

Flappy Mcpow said on November 22, 2016 at 8:35 AM
I'm as excited as everyone else here! I hope TTR will be able to fix the Mac's audio issue soon! I'm also excited for the Toonfest prizes because I've been saving up my tokens for this!

Polar Bear E. Bearzerk said on November 22, 2016 at 9:00 AM
Thank You!! My end game goal isn't to end this game! Thank you so MUCH! Can't complain about Toonfest content or any other whispered treats in store for us and you guys have not yet implemented. How can we miss what we never really had? Loop on back to share more TTR information! I truly appreciate it!

Prof Popcorn Petalpoof said on November 22, 2016 at 9:13 AM
Nice to read some new info. We certainly understand how big a task this is. Just let us know what is going on, and we will supply all the patience and support you need.

Max Megatwist said on November 22, 2016 at 10:01 AM
Wow, you have all been working so hard! I'm really proud with that - gosh, I feel like a parent

Equanimity said on November 22, 2016 at 10:10 AM
I can't wait for all the new updates! You guys made a good decision dropping Toonfest and focusing on more important things.

Sootie said on November 22, 2016 at 10:12 AM
Thanks for everything you do!

dizzytwinklecrunch said on November 22, 2016 at 10:18 AM

Little Sammie Dandyfoot said on November 22, 2016 at 10:34 AM
I am so glad to see you are not giving up. Despite all the negativity in the community, you still strive to do the best. Although ToonFest is ending, you are putting your minds to some greater tasks. Now that is Toony.

Bubbles said on November 22, 2016 at 10:40 AM
Your hard work is appreciated! Thank you!

Sally Sparklepop said on November 22, 2016 at 11:10 AM

Sounds amazing! Keep up the great motivation :)

Lucky Biscuit said on November 22, 2016 at 11:39 AM
How Exciting! cant wait to see the new TOONTASTIC! Species! :D

Asriel said on November 22, 2016 at 12:40 PM
Prehaps fix some of the grapical bugs and crashes, such as the bug that makes all the building disapear and crashes when you move between streets etc. Also looking foward to voting for fox.

Giggles said on November 22, 2016 at 12:49 PM
Yay! Thank you for all your hard work. I love this game!

Bizzy Sourcrash said on November 22, 2016 at 12:55 PM
I can't wait for field offices! :D

Floppy said on November 22, 2016 at 1:20 PM
Best of luck for this year, TTR Team! I can't wait to play the new version of your incredible game you have so far! #ttr4eva

Chipper Twinkledoodle said on November 22, 2016 at 1:30 PM
Will Memberships become a thing again if TTR gets out of BETA?

Relixx said on November 22, 2016 at 1:47 PM
I'm so pumped for all these changes, and I can't wait to see all of them! We appreciate your hard work!

Mocha said on November 22, 2016 at 1:53 PM
I'm SO happy the new clothes will be coming out soon! I've been waiting ages for the new clothes. I plan on buying the Hawaiian Helper and the Flower Pot Hat. Keep up the great work TTR team! I support you all the way, just make sure to get the updates in check :-)

Papa Luigi said on November 22, 2016 at 3:36 PM
YAY!!!! :D KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK TTR STAFF AND JOEY! :D And one more thing. Toons, the TTR staff members work on this game every day to make it good. Be patient. Give them time. Let them relax for at least a minute. They are giving us time to be prepared for toonfest items.

Coconut Dizzyspeed said on November 22, 2016 at 3:39 PM
So excited for new stuff. Thanks for all the work you do TTR Team

Candy said on November 22, 2016 at 4:20 PM
I'm so excited for this!! Thank you so much for remaking this game! I know you have a lot of work on you hands, and you have to look through hundreds of comments, so this is just a request that may never see the light of day, but can you add some more words in different languages? I know the main language for people playing this is English, but my Hispanic neighbors also love playing this, but their English isn't so great. (this is just a request, and sorry for the paragraph!) p.s., congrats on reaching over a million toons!!!!! :D :D :D

Duke Jellyroll said on November 22, 2016 at 4:44 PM
This makes me really happy to hear! Awesome job, and I am looking forward to what comes next~

Jon said on November 22, 2016 at 4:53 PM
I believe in you guys.

wacko jinxgrooven said on November 22, 2016 at 5:12 PM
when I grow up ill bring back toontown no matter what!

Super Ultra Banana Peels said on November 22, 2016 at 5:19 PM
Yay, you keep pushing , you hear? Trust this old time toon, corporate gets long in the tooth. My particular love to defeat, recently, are the micromanagers. The more of them that are gone, the smoother toontown will run!

Buttercup said on November 22, 2016 at 6:23 PM
This game is great! Thanks for all the hard work to make it even GREATER!

i have a question mostly, the old toon town if a remember, had the package delivery, the trashcan, and the fire hydrant do buffs with the squirt, throw, and toon-up, is that going to be added in this amazing remaster of toon town?

Skunkitty said on November 22, 2016 at 11:17 PM
This is so awesome to see ToonTown ReWritten is growing so big. Its so exciting it will be taken to the next step of leaving BETA. I have been here since Alpha and have enjoyed each step of progress. Even tho there were a few setbacks this game ROCKS. Big APPLAUSE to the staff and all that have worked to bring this awesome game back to is enjoyment stage.

Buster Pumkincrunch said on November 23, 2016 at 12:50 AM
Good Luck from Australia with polishing the game! Can't Wait

Master Squigglezap said on November 23, 2016 at 1:29 AM
Thanks TTR team! don't sweat the timeframe, I for one will remain a loyal toon.

Lemon said on November 23, 2016 at 4:11 AM
This game had always been my favorite because of these COOL UPDATES! i hope the game comes to a better population maybe 2 million in the future

Cuckoo McQuack said on November 23, 2016 at 1:09 PM
You do what you need to do and THANK YOU for making this game possible, with all the wonderful and new features that you are engaging in to make this game the BEST it could be now and in the future. The fact that the creator is so involved as well makes it even more exciting with all the creativeness that is amongst you all is mind blowing. Who are we to get mad, we can not get mad, but ONLY EXCITED for what is coming. Make sure you take time for yourself and family to enjoy the Holiday Season. You all deserve an applause of THANK YOU and ACCOMPLISHMENT for what you have provided for us! My hat is off to you, I bow in appreciation and a wish for a Safe and successful New Year. Thank Thank You Thank You!!

Louie said on November 23, 2016 at 2:48 PM
All of this sounds great! I can't believe how much time you put into this game to make the players happy. I'm so excited for the new updates to come out, and it'll be interesting to see what else you guys have in store for us!

Skinny Murky Electrotoon said on November 23, 2016 at 3:11 PM
Congrats on reaching 1,000,000 registers on toon town. Hopes for 2 million.

Linguini said on November 23, 2016 at 3:25 PM
Excited but I'm just waiting for the doodles xD

BanjoMegaCrash said on November 23, 2016 at 3:43 PM
Yay the items are finally coming out!

Loopy Bananamuffin said on November 23, 2016 at 3:53 PM
Very exciting indeed and appreciated all that you have done so far and all that you will do. Me personally, if all that is needed is my patience, then that is what I will give. Great 2016 and an even more wondrous 2017.

The Pastel Boonie said on November 23, 2016 at 5:52 PM
I really appreciate the way you guys are letting us know what you're working on. im sure it helps with patience as opposed to be secretive about the game having issues. i understand that its a work in progress and im so glad you revived toontown.

Trixie Twinkletoes said on November 23, 2016 at 6:20 PM
Yay! I wish ToonFest wasn't gonna end so soon. I hope I have time to get SOME of the prizes! Excited for the holidays though. Keep up the good work, Toontown Rewritten Staff! I'm thankful for you bringing back the game I love!!!

Mitty said on November 23, 2016 at 6:30 PM
I can't wait for the prizes to come out! My toons have been lacking a sense of style.

Papa Luigi said on November 23, 2016 at 7:18 PM
Thanks for everything you all have done. I believe in you, TTR staff! Tis game means a lot to me. I think about it during school.

Oswald Trickytail said on November 23, 2016 at 7:19 PM
This sounds cool! Good job TTR staff!!!

Electric Bear said on November 23, 2016 at 10:20 PM
Truthfully, this has changed my stance on Toontown Rewritten. I had a feeling everything was going to derail and crash if the team kept up with how it had been. This post came at the right time. With so many videos from the toontown community on Youtube talking about the decline of TTR and how it isn't a "good server" anymore, this post cleared everything up. I am now excited for the future of TTR again, thank you.

Little Boo Boo Cuddlemuffin said on November 24, 2016 at 3:05 AM
Wow it's Thursday already, I was literally telling all my friends the prizes were coming tomorrow and wow.. they didn't answer.. but I'm still TOO excited for this XD I literally can't wait for the bowties and bows hope there's glasses too like a few stuff from last year I dunno but anyway this whole post made me scream with excitement. lolol

Barney Wondersnout said on November 24, 2016 at 6:53 AM
I love this game!!! I can't wait for the updates!!!! You can make it out of beta!!! You can pull it off!!! #MAKETOONTOWNGREATAGAIN!!!!!

Cool Pinky said on November 24, 2016 at 6:54 AM
Thanks for the info! You guys work so hard to keep Toontown Rewritten running! Keep up the good work!

100% Excited For Whats To Come! Toons Of The World, UNITE!

Myleigh bird said on November 24, 2016 at 8:17 AM
cool can't wait to play

Professor John said on November 24, 2016 at 8:19 AM
I've have been bored with toontown lately, because I'm at Donald's Dreamland and the big tasks are getting on my nerves. I'm so exited for something new because I can really get into it. I wonder what the big event going from beta to Full version.... maybe the chairman....

Kittenson said on November 24, 2016 at 8:31 AM
Omg I'm so excited for this! I'm so grateful of what you're working on!

Penelope Giggledorf said on November 24, 2016 at 9:16 AM
I actually found this game only a couple weeks ago, and I was very pleasantly surprised to see that this version of the game is almost exactly as I remember from when I was younger. That being said, I am excited to hear that the game will progress further, because I too see great value in this game. Thank you so much for creating Rewritten so I could once again enjoy the game I adored.

Noisy Twinklebumper said on November 24, 2016 at 10:26 AM
Its been a long while since your last blog, I guess you guys were very busy. Anyways, have a nice thanksgiving.

Minty/Blurryface/Anathema/Mogwai said on November 24, 2016 at 11:43 AM
thanks ttr staff! so glad to have you after the closure of tto. you've greatly improved the game so far and i can't wait for everything to come in the future! so thankful for the fun times and friends ttr has given me!

Duchess said on November 24, 2016 at 12:25 PM

Tommy said on November 24, 2016 at 1:25 PM

tommatoes said on November 24, 2016 at 2:01 PM

blinky said on November 24, 2016 at 4:12 PM
happy thanksgiving to all and good job to all of you you have worked and are still working hard and i for one appreciate it because i love the game

Squeaky Doors said on November 24, 2016 at 4:34 PM
I greatly appreciate the effort the team has put into returning Toontown for users. Having started with the original back in 2005, it became an important outlet and means of contact at a time I wasn't well. While well now, TTR has brought back great memories and made new ones when I have the time to play the game. Thank you, team!

Splash said on November 24, 2016 at 5:46 PM
Hopefully next year we will be able to have our very own Doodle! Have a happy Thanksgiving! -Splash

Toon Master said on November 24, 2016 at 6:30 PM
I've played this game since 2003 and am so happy to see it is still going. Thank you all so much. Looking forward to seeing new content!!

Trev said on November 24, 2016 at 6:44 PM
A wait is worth it for what you, developers, have provided for myself and other players. Take your time on recreating this classic game.

Jumpin' Jessie Jujubee said on November 24, 2016 at 7:14 PM
Thank you TTR Staff for this valuable information. I can't wait for what happens next. If your trying to bring back the stuff from TTO include doodles and party's I miss them so much.

King Monty Megagrooven said on November 24, 2016 at 8:04 PM
Does your future planning involve doodles? Me and my sister still are waiting! They're so cute!

Prof von Peppernugget said on November 24, 2016 at 10:17 PM
Crash fixes are the most important. I can't wait to finish a day of play without losing an hour or so to drops. Keep up the great work!

Moseman said on November 24, 2016 at 11:04 PM
Something I have been struggling with is my game crashing whenever I hit loading screens after playing for about 20min. Hopefully I can see this fixed! Excited to get back into my childhood game even though my wife looks at me weird, haha.

Slumpy Biggendoodle said on November 25, 2016 at 6:49 AM
As an old tto player, I just want to thank you all for the excellent work you've done in making ttr exceptionally fun for all of us toons in your community! Well done!!!

Queen Of Hearts said on November 25, 2016 at 12:08 PM
Keep up the good work, guys! This update is gonna be amazing! I'm so excited!

Twinklejinks said on November 25, 2016 at 12:46 PM
This is going to be awesome! XD

Jaws said on November 25, 2016 at 12:48 PM
when is the new toon character coming out?

MasterCoconut said on November 25, 2016 at 12:49 PM
Can't wait for the Prize Tower to open!

McMuffin said on November 25, 2016 at 2:52 PM
That means doodles, parties, and field offices are all coming out by March possibly? After that, you guys will just keep on growing!

Benitoite said on November 25, 2016 at 3:45 PM
Man I have no clue which toon should be added, they are ALL great! Can you add the poll winner first and then add all the others as the game moves forward?

Rose Pink Pig said on November 25, 2016 at 3:51 PM
Have you thought about talking to someone to translate the game into Portuguese?

Zoobie said on November 25, 2016 at 3:57 PM
Thanks for all your hard work, I understand that behind the scenes can make the game a bit difficult and I'm okay with it. No pain, no gain :) Thanks again!!

anonymous said on November 25, 2016 at 6:21 PM
Ah, so the updates come out next year. Shame. But, I'm very excited for the new things these "tokens" will have to offer. That is most definitely exciting!

Eddie said on November 25, 2016 at 9:34 PM
:) This is awesome! It is going to feel like playing TTO again back in '07, then. Thanks, TT Rewritten!!

Little Miss said on November 26, 2016 at 5:39 AM
Can't wait for the updates! Hopefully, doodles will come out soon so I can fully re-unite my old account :D

Cogs are a NO said on November 26, 2016 at 11:03 AM
Well guys.. I belive in you! This toontown is better then the original! I still love the original though. Anyway you can make toontown rewritten better!! Good luck!!!!!

Connor said on November 26, 2016 at 12:47 PM
I am really Hoping for doodles in the 2017 update! It will bring some more fun back into the game and they will be help in battles for toon up too!

Casual Bongos said on November 26, 2016 at 1:15 PM
TTR is currently in an update, so this is good reading material while you wait for it to be over.

Vanilla Ice Cream said on November 26, 2016 at 1:33 PM
Toontown was my childhood and when they shut it down, it broke my heart. But, when you guys started it up again, it made me so beyond happy. I am so proud of what you guys are doing with it. Because of you guys, I still play it! All I ask is, please no membership required again. I hated paying to do stuff. But, thank you for bringing my childhood back to me. I love this game and will continue to support and play it. Much love. (:

Cheese Girl / Helena said on November 26, 2016 at 2:05 PM
I am so excited that the TTR team is still trying their hardest to do this game. I thank you guys so much. I understand that probably some of the staff are very likely in college so they probably have to work on school work which probably can slow down the development of the game (and has, but hasnt stopped it) I am glad that the TTR team isnt going to give up, or at least they better not. I am soooo hype for when open beta is done and the game is out of beta cause then there will probably me so much less lag and bugs (hopefully!) :3

Buster said on November 26, 2016 at 2:06 PM
I was a high level toon when I played Disney's Toon Town, When i heard of that they were closing i has was very sad. Then to hear about Toon Town Rewritten I got very excited and i have been a long member. I thank you for making the game free and for remaking the game, However i think some of the elements of Disney's later Toon Town are still missing. Such as, Field offices, Pets, Animated Street elements. I think that now since the focus of your working is the game, adding this would be very much appreciated around the whole community of TTR. Thank You.

Wanda said on November 26, 2016 at 2:12 PM
It is so cool, I hope they add new updates!

PapaBear said on November 26, 2016 at 2:42 PM
I hope someday you can and (for example) Thank You cards for purchases from Clara.

Arrowdancer said on November 26, 2016 at 4:19 PM
I really appreciate that you guys spent the time to inform us of your plans! Most sites don't, which can be a real problem when things aren't moving as quick as usual. Thanks for letting us know what to expect and look forward to!

Eric said on November 26, 2016 at 4:30 PM
This sounds amazing! Can;t wait to see what other surprises are in store ahead for the wonderful game we all dearly love! Keep up the awesome work! #ToontownForever

Charm said on November 26, 2016 at 7:52 PM
Thank you for your hard work and time, as well as keeping us informed! Good luck with the programing and stuff.

Wombat said on November 26, 2016 at 8:59 PM
Thank you for your work on the game!!

TheSmallCogBuster said on November 27, 2016 at 8:07 AM
You guys just keep growing and growing! Did Daisy put growth fertilizer on this game?

Rosie said on November 27, 2016 at 4:41 PM
im hyped to see TTR's update!!

Piper said on November 27, 2016 at 8:53 PM
I was actually crying reading this. You see, I've been huge ToonTown lover since I was five years old. There was a while there that me, my brother, and my father all played ToonTown together and when I found out they were shutting it down, I couldn't even bare it, it really hurt. So I want to say thank you for restoring ToonTown to its original glory! Heck, you're making it even better than the original. Nothing will be like the original ToonTown, however, it can bring memories back and help us create even better ones! So, thank you!! ˆ•ˆ

Toon said on November 28, 2016 at 12:37 AM
Maybe sometime along the line, we would get more Laff boosts by winning the board games so many times in Acorn Acres, like 1 win, +1 Laff, 10 wins, +1 Laff, & even 100 wins, +1 Laff, E.G.. A small suggestion to get Toons a bit more motivated.
