Daily Alpha Giveaway: The Final Countdown

Posted by Sir Max on December 13, 2013 at 2:00 PM

OooooooooooOOOooOOOoooooohhhh boy. This is it, fellas. The final day. We are literally in the final countdown. I can hear 80's music all around me. Such intensity!



You can feel the tension in the air. What will today's feedback question be? What website is hosting the secondary contest? What lucky toons are going to get their paws on the last 20 Alpha Keys in the Giveaway?

Well, my curious friend, I have an answer for all of those in order of randomness. Random counter says that I'm going to answer #2 first: We're hosting the secondary contest. In fact, we are merging the giveaway into one full thing and randomly picking 20 lucky toons to receive keys!

Now, I've been reading some of your complaints. You're "never entering another key contest again", you say. Well, sadly, you toons who said that just lied. "You can't force me to enter!" you may say, but we just did.

That's right. Everyone who has entered since the beginning of these giveaways was just entered into this final one. That means if you entered all 10 days of the giveaway, your name is in there 10 times. If you entered 3 days of the giveaway, your name is in there 3 times. Basic Math. (Whichever one of you thinks that Toontown has no educational value, consider yourselves wrong. Hooray for math!)

Now, for the question. This is the final one, so make it count! "What can Toontown Rewritten do to make the game better for you, personally? Not the game as a whole, but you." It can be big or small, a tweak or a huge feature.

This has been an awesome experience, and I love reading your feedback every day. No matter who wins tomorrow, I hope that all of you had fun doing this. Toons of the world, checkoutthesewinners!


Daily Alpha Giveaway Winners:

The people listed below were randomly selected from the entries to win. Head on over here to enter for tomorrow's giveaway!

Today's Question:
"What kind of tools can Toontown Rewritten make to help other sites?
(Examples: Toon stats, Top Toons display, Invasion tracker API, etc.)"


1. Tomasina
With Top toons you can add Top Doodles, like most laff given, most tricks done, etc.
2. Kenoch
An Invasion Tracker would be vey helpful. I've used it countless times in the original Toontown.
3. Dippy Skippy Nuttymuffin
Put up some advertising on TTR website for other websites.
4. Baron Zooblecrump
API for toon update for websites. Top Toons for buildings destroyed, most bots destroyed, etc.
5. Weird Zany Rufflespeed
...I think it'd also be cool if the game server could output some in-game information directly to the Toontown Rewritten site itself. Features like invasion trackers on the Toontown fansites were useful and it would be nice to have that built directly into the Toontown Rewritten site.
6. Knuckles
Invasion Tracker!!!!
7. Odieboy
A tool that can help Toontown Rewritten release to another website is a tool that can track invasions, like the good ol' invasion tracker website, but make it official! Nobody will be banned for using it!
8. Avada Kedavra
I really have no idea...
Once again, we borked up and forgot to push the question. These toons still entered in the time period, but he answered the question "Of all of the suggested features you have seen, which one do you want the most?" instead. Sorry!

9. Elijah
More animals to choose from, and animals to have tales.
10. Cookie
My most wanted feature would probably be the idea of bikes or another form of transportation for the tasks that require a lot of walking around.

"Eddit or Reddit?" Contest:

Reddit:
I asked redditors of /r/Toontown to put their art skills to a test and make a version of "Snoo" based off of Toontown. These below are my favorites. Keep an eye on /r/Toontown, as the moderator (/u/Mysteryman64) and myself will be choosing one of them to use as the subreddit's logo soon!

1. Mellowbit
2. Greenitthe
3. Vyradia
4. Derpygoose
5. Annelle

Toonblr:
June and Josh hosted a Tumblr ("Toonter") contest yesterday to see some of the fanart that you guys can draw. They asked for five different categories, and picked a winner from each. NOTE: These are just for fun, not in-game designs.

1. Mischief and Science - Toon Trooper Symbols
2. Gale Slash - New Cog Emblem
3. Shiba-ty - Shticker Book Redesign
4. Slendytoon - Friends GUI Redesign
5. "Cogs Make Me Uncomfortable" - New Shirt Design

TTRForums Backstory Contest:

TTRForums was interested in what kind of fanfiction the community could come up with, asking everyone to write a story about how an NPC earned their job. These don't relate to TTR, just a fun story to tell. And a key to win!

1. Footballtoon
The Discovery of Lord Lowden Clear
...Postmaster Pete was in awe. ?Oh my lord, Lowden?what is this?? Pete gradually asked, his head still turning, stunned by the visual in front of him. Lowden answered, ?Well, I?m working on designing a Cashbot suit. I?ve been studying how the Sellbot suit parts worked, and have managed to come up with a working Cashbot form of the cog suit. I just need the gloves to complete it...
2. Fire Lord
The Tanley Parable
...This is what Toon 427 did every day of every month and every year, and although others might have considered it cog-like, Tanley enjoyed every moment that the orders came in. And Tanley was very happy. Then one day, something very strange happened. Something that would forever change Tanley. Something he would never forget...
3. Mayday Parade
Loony Louis' Story
...Binky sprayed me with his seltzer bottle and decided to move on to the next exercise. Which was the best thing I've ever seen. It was a mini Cruiser Clown Car! It was equipped with horns, and even wheels shaped like pies...
4. Thing
Johnny Cashmere's Accidental Success
...He always dressed a little different than the other toons. He wore a shirt and a pair of shorts like every other boy toon, but his entire outfit was strangely colored...
5. Awkward Pineapple
Inflatable Wrecking Balls
...Bruce was different, though, he would not let the cogs change him. As he left his house, he said bye to a few of his neighbors, but they were too busy acting loony to notice...
6. Obsidian
Detective Lima, On The Case
...They stormed each neighborhood and claimed it as their own. Lloyd Lima did all he could to protect his citizens from these robots, AKA "cogs", but in the end, they were all run out of Lureville...
7. Princess Hulagadget
Whispering Willow's Voice Training Secret
...I can still remember how things were, back when Donald was still awake. He had called me, telling me about his new Dreamland, and asking me if I'd like to open up a shop there...
8. Slendy Toon
Vidalia Vavoom: The Love that can Never Be
...Years pass as Vidalia's task to toons is to recover and deliver the special love note to Snooty. She knew it was time to confess. It's been almost 10 years since she's known him...
9. Remedy
Flippy's Audition
..."I'll make them wacky! Fun! Excited! Toonier than toonier can go!" Flippy exclaimed, jumping onto a table. "I have the enthusiasm of all the toons combined." ...
10. Chariot
Leo's Fenders - The Pie, The Yesman, The Mouse
...The robot walked up to the Toons, with a very creepy grin on its face. It had a metallic suit on, and had excellent posture for a robot, if Leo did say so himself...

Wow! I have 7 entries! Sounds great! And the final question, well that one will be fun! Have a Toontastic finale to this Toontastic Contest!

King Rusty said on December 13, 2013 at 2:29 PM
A tool to see how many skill points someone has gained in a day on each gag track?

Darkstar said on December 13, 2013 at 2:34 PM
Good luck to everyone for this final contest, this has been fun and I never have more excitement in my entire life. Whoever wins today, Well done. Don't worry if you get one, but atleast we have toontown rewritten existing.

Little Peanut Gigglegoose said on December 13, 2013 at 2:35 PM
I accidentally skipped a couple of days. Yesterday, and the day before yesterday. If I don't win an alpha key, I will mind, but I also hope it will open soon D:.

Chipper said on December 13, 2013 at 2:39 PM
My virtual fingers are crossed...

Zowie Octochomp said on December 13, 2013 at 2:39 PM
Oh my gosh, I don't think anything could ever be as suspenseful, except for maybe the winners announced tommorrow. Hope the winners will do their best for the game!

Big Banjo Bagelberry said on December 13, 2013 at 3:01 PM
Good luck everyone Friday the 13th wont be unlucky for everyone!

When??? said on December 13, 2013 at 3:17 PM
When will the game be released? I'm so excited and literally can't wait for it to open! Please post when it will be open somewhere on your site or at least an estimate! Please!

Dusty said on December 13, 2013 at 3:20 PM
Very cool. Im happy for those who got the Alpha Key. Can't believe its down to the final keys. Ahhh!

Joozee said on December 13, 2013 at 3:43 PM
Dont get me wrong... great give aways and stuff... But i come here everyday to check on the GAME UPDATES.. I havent seen one since this contest started.. Is there a chance you could give some info on the developments?

Fireball said on December 13, 2013 at 3:50 PM
I don't have anymore time to wait for this game... Joey, we all want to play, can't you let us?!

Jim said on December 13, 2013 at 3:52 PM
man this is intense!! I really hope i win, it wound be so awesome to be an alpha tester! :D

Zowie said on December 13, 2013 at 4:20 PM
Aww, poor charlie! Ive never seen that video before. Im really appreciative you guys are doing this, recreating toontown. It was my favorite game and anything you can do would be amazing enough.

Blossom said on December 13, 2013 at 4:45 PM
I was also thinking that maybe for tomorrow's contest you can read the answers and choose the best ones instead of choosing random to give people a better chance, since it is the last day of the contest, after all...

nutmeg said on December 13, 2013 at 5:43 PM
I am just so ready for this to be open! I miss all of you, toons!

Reni said on December 13, 2013 at 6:42 PM
My friend Slendy Toon won!! Thank goodness :) Sad that I didn't get a key though. :C

Snow Flake said on December 13, 2013 at 6:52 PM
Even though I didn't win an alpha key, I enjoyed the contest and I think a lot of good ideas came out of it. Great job all, Toons of world, unite!

Scare-D-Cat said on December 13, 2013 at 7:19 PM
What I want to see in ToonTown Rewritten, is all the glitches from ToonTown fixed. The game will be a whole lot better without all the toons who glitch the game. Oh yea, the greeners aren't cool either.

Dizzy Loopensnoop said on December 13, 2013 at 10:42 PM
Man, I wish i could have kept up with all this. I hadnt even realized the game was already about to give out keys. I hope i can stay tooned with everything to come.

Princess Hulagadget said on December 13, 2013 at 11:17 PM
Congratulations to everyone who won a key! And I'm sorry for those who didn't... By the way, did TTR Forums remove the stories or something? I can't read them, not even my own...

midnight1888 said on December 14, 2013 at 1:35 AM
i like to say that i am glad that finally somebody else agrees with me about toons having a tail. i like to see also that we can get rid of those funny looking gloves. give Us Paws please with fngers that would be nice. thank you

Victoria <3 said on December 14, 2013 at 5:13 AM
Alright well I didn't win one.... That's ok!!!! I can just wait for the game to open. :) But I hope the people who did win an alpha key have fun!! Congrats!! ~Victoria

King Peppy Octoroni said on December 14, 2013 at 5:19 AM
Hey TTR I got's an idea. how about every march 5 is Doodle day! Like in the catolog you can get a doodle hat, a doodle shirt and even FREE DOODLES!

Rainbow Berry said on December 14, 2013 at 6:22 AM
Oh my gosh. This is so suspenseful! How about a drum-roll? Oh wait, no not yet. Nevermind! Are you excited? Are you? Great, because I am super excited! Congratulations to the winners, and good luck to you all! Toons of The World, Unite!

Miss fluffy said on December 14, 2013 at 7:09 AM
sense i can see the future i will tell you my first sightings that i saw of toontown and i was gonna play it. this is when i was 4: I was sleeping in my crib (still) and then i went to sleep i thought i woke up but i was in a dream when i had my teddy bear it turned into a yes man and it laughed evily i was terrified and when i woke i threw up (like i went sad) and i had to sleep with my mom and dad. This was also the first time i was sleeping in my mom and dad's bed and never forgot that memory of the first cog i had seen.

CharlieThedog said on December 14, 2013 at 7:51 AM
Congrats to the people who won alpha keys, even though i didnt win one i still enjoyed the questions, they were fun to awnser :D

Sara said on December 14, 2013 at 8:48 AM
This is it fellas. The final day. Good luck to everyone. And if you don't get an alpha key, its ok. most likely I wont get one either.

Buggsie said on December 14, 2013 at 10:27 AM
I have entered in every single contest for an alpha key. all 10 random drawings and all of the other contests. I really want to play. I miss TT so much! If I don't get one, I hope it gets released soon. Or at least I hope that you guys let us know when it will be released.

Doctor Slappy said on December 14, 2013 at 12:09 PM
Toontown is my favorite game of all time! This is the first time I have had the chance to enter a contest... I don't have my computer yet. What I would think that would push a game over the top would be some kind of "toon bay". It could be a site or an in game feature that would allow users the ability to send out a request that they wanted to do a back nine for an example. Then it would automatically pair you with others who were looking to do that. This would be especially useful for ppl struggling to get groups to get merits,bucks,notices, or options. There is a lack of those type of support groups. Kind of like a tf2 lobby, but you would have to manually meet in the district together. Another great feature that could extend the life of this game could be trading (also like tf2) where the hat system could be a symbol of status and where the victories you have gotten would count as 1 credit.

Cheezydoodle said on December 14, 2013 at 2:07 PM
I watched Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory last night. It reminded me of these contests. " 'Cause I've got a golden ticket, (I've got a golden ticket), I've got a golden gleam in my eye"...

Master Popcorn said on December 14, 2013 at 2:18 PM
Maybe there should be a thing that shows how long it has been since your friend has logged on so you know if they are an active or inactive player

Queen Zilly Bananaboing said on December 14, 2013 at 3:38 PM
It would be awesome if toons could have transportation in the streets instead of running! Like bikes, cars, etc.!

Lily said on December 14, 2013 at 7:32 PM
My goodness.....such wonderful art! And they are SO adorable!

Dark Chocolate Chip said on December 14, 2013 at 9:07 PM
I hope when the game opens, TTR tries to set up a new headquarter in the near future. For us "old-timers" to do something different. Even mega buildings would be toontastic!

Zowie said on December 14, 2013 at 10:21 PM
Good luck to everyone! I'm so excited to find out who these lucky winners will be!

fireball mc monkey said on December 15, 2013 at 5:03 AM
I've tried every time but and never got one but there is still hope.

Rosie said on December 15, 2013 at 6:42 AM
I really enjoyed trying to get an alpha key. I didn't get one, but I wish I did because I loved Toontown and I really hoped I was going to get a key so I could play. But, everybody doesn't get to get one, so I will just have to wait until it is out to public.

Colonel Tricky Sourspinner said on December 15, 2013 at 8:23 AM
Will Toontown Rewritten be having an open beta?

Snuffy said on December 15, 2013 at 12:59 PM
Career stats like how many bots a toon has defeated, buildings recovered, boss battles completed, date of creation, hours played, gag most used, etc.

Cranky said on December 16, 2013 at 8:56 PM
I really want to win! Toontown is really fun, and if i dont win, I hope it comes out soon!

Queen Rainbow Wondermuffin said on December 20, 2013 at 10:39 AM
I really like the transportation idea to get around toontown. I was thinking maybe we could use the same karts that we used in goofy's speedway! I don't think they were used to their full potential. I'm SOO glad you guys are making Toontown rewritten as I have loved playing for the past seven years and I can't wait to replay the awesomeness! Toons of the world unite!!!
