PostSubject: Toonstruck 2 will be released if you want it bad enough!   Sat Jan 15, 2011 6:32 am



Now I'm going to speak about our oldie of the month, Toonstruck. Despite being very costly, it was terribly underrated and became a financial disaster for the publisher. Before the release it was split in two parts, and Toonstruck 2 never got released, so the game had a very open ending.
In 2010, after 14 years, Keith Arem, the game's music director, stated he would like to release a full version of Toonstruck which would be adapted for modern PC's and include the second part of the game. But he needs "tremendous fan support" to justify its release and convince the publishers that the game won't fail once again. So there's a petition which has already reached the number of 3260 signatures.
A quote from Mr. Arem (you can read his letter here):
Quote :

While the game was internationally critically acclaimed, the game did
not receive the sales we hoped, and the second half was never released.
Now that my career has developed, I would like to re-release an updated
version of Toonstruck to include the 2nd half of the game (iPad, online,
etc), but I would need tremendous fan support to justify its release. I
am looking for someone to help organize a fan petition to help us raise
the capital to finance the game, so if you know anyone who could help
with this, I would appreciate the assistance.

Another letter by Mr. Arem and a mini-interview with him.

Besides, Mr. Arem has recently announced on the Facebook page that we may see some "behind the scenes peeks into the development process".

First of all welcome AdventFan and thank you for stopping by with this news but not everybody belongs to these social websites so showing our support isn't possible. Sure I would like to see a release for the PC (don't see Mr Arem mention PC) but I am not going to join FaceBook or any of the others to show it.

Hi AdventFan and to the forums of Adventure Point.

I for one am a long standing fan of Toonstruck, having played it many years ago. It is, I agree, an Adventure that passed by somewhat unnoticed, especially here in the UK.

It would be fantastic if Toonstruck 2 saw the light of day. Just browsing the old Toonstruck website brings back some great memories.

I signed the Facebook petition last year but, since then, I've had the impression that the 'campaign' has stagnated somewhat.

Is that the case? I hope not.

Adventure Point's modest homage to Toonstruck can be found Here

and in a small feature to Toonstruck as 'Oldie of the Month', HERE .

Thanks for bringing Toonstruck, and the possibility of Toonstruck 2, to the attention of our community here AdventFan. And, as I said, .

A couple of updates from Keith Arem on the group's wall:
Quote :

'We're currently working on an enhanced re-release of TS1, but we may add some of the TS2 content if we can afford to do it. We'll likely re-build our fanbase, and then move onto TS2 next.

More to come!'

Quote :

Hey all -

We're still quite a ways off, but I'm hoping we can make an official announcement by Comic Con or later this summer!

We appreciate your enthusiasm! Keep the dream alive! :-)

So now we finally have a date!

And some more news from Trevor Greer who's involved in the project:
Quote :

Well Ladies and Gentlemen, I have good news for those of you who are looking forward to the re-enhanced version of Toonstruck.
My father and Keith both worked at Virgin (Interactive?) and they are overseeing the project. As well as this, I play a part of this project.
The re-enhanced version is beginning to gain momentum and we are in the process of gathering all the old data from the original source code.
We hope to have stuff for Comicon this July, so check out the PCB Productions booth at the convention!
Answers to some questions:
Quote :

1. I believe our current goal lies with a handheld version of the game. But, depending on its success, repackaging it back for PC and Mac isn't too far off.

2. What I mean by "Re-enhanced" is that we are taking all the old backgrounds and sound files and upping their resolution to match the ratio of iPad, iPhone etc.

3. We don't have any current plans to send it off for a windows platform at the moment.

4. While it may be going for Apple products,I'm not sure if we will have it for Android. Time will tell.

5. Once I find out our booth number for Comicon, I will be sure to let you guys know so you can come on by! I will probably be there helping out all (5?) days of the Convention at the booth.
