Toonstruck 2 exciting news!

As you probably remember, Toonstruck was cut in two parts before the release, and part 2 has never been released. Well, now it probably will be!

Keith Arem, a member of Toonstruck team who now owns the rights to it, is considering the re-release of Toonstruck which would include Toonstruck 2, but he needs "tremendous fan support" to justify its release and raise the capital. There's a petition which has already reached the point of 3000 signatures.

A quote from Mr. Arem (you can read his letter here):

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 from Mr. Arem and a mini-interview with him.

    Yeah, but I'd imagine that'd be reversed sometime during the game... and they'd still need his voice.

    They might be able to re-use some of the old footage from the original and just overdub some new voice over it.
  • If they are going to do the second toonstruck anyways, wouldn't it just be easier for an animated Loyd?
  • Everything was completed for the 2nd half already before they cut it, the animation, puzzles, cutscenes, voices, it was all done and ready to go but Virgin thought to hold onto it cause they thought it would make lots of cash and release it as a sequel if it did well.
  • Now into the 1,200s. Even if it doesn't make 50,000 I'm sure it will definitley show that theres interest in wanting a re-release, heres hoping!!!
  • UPDATE: reached the point of 2000 signatures!!!
  • Holy CRAP!

    Seriously? This is something I never would have seen coming. Petition- signed. Friends - Told.

    Better say "Holy crow". Then you'll sound like Bella Swan ;)
  • Some guy called Bernard Le Moullec who on both the Petition website and Facebook has said he recieved an email from Keith Arem the other day with some "Exciting" news attached. One of the forum guys at AdventureGamers.com found out he's a french IT graduate with a job in games journalism/development and he emailed Bernard to confirm this and was given a copy of the e-mail that he got from Keith Arem, the news contained within was indeed exciting but hes requested private correspondance for now and can't spread the details right now. Apparently if you want to know what this "Exciting" news is you have to email him yourself which I believe he put his address up on the Facebook page.
  • I always hoped they would re-release this ever since I stumnbled onto this game's trailer a few years ago! It looks like it's awesome! Well by 90's standards anyway! I just hope this isn't another internet hoax!
