March Progress Update

UPDATE 3/22/17


Hey there, everyone! Ask Alice here. It's been far too long since a blog post, though most players are receiving announcements in real-time in the Project Altis Discord. However, it is always nice to receive a formal writeup on the state of the game.

The game development is coming along quite nicely. We have reached a new stage in alpha where we are focusing most on bug fixes in the game, the launcher, and even the website (the 2-factor authentication issues have been resolved). However we do have a couple major features coming along that still need textures, models, and other assets. We are very excited for the last few major features we have planned before beta, such as:

  • Boardbot HQ
  • All-new Acorn Acres Playground with new streets and tasks.
  • Fully working parties.
  • Type-A-Name (live now)
  • Invasion Tracker (and eventually group tracker)
  • Engine updates, including 64 bit support, as well as official Mac and Linux support.

The team has been constantly evolving; It is a constant process of learning who is truely dedicated to the project, while being fit for the job. We would like to announce that applications have re-opened to join the Toontown: Project Altis Team! We have revised our application with more formal descriptions and requirements. Please keep in mind that you must be willing to fully commit to your role in the Toontown: Project Altis Team and be able to work in a voluntary environment. For example, do not apply to be a Moderator just to have an icon over your head, but rather to work towards a potential goal with intent. Be aware that, depending on the position, the final stage of entry will require a signature of a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) form, so if you are not over the age of 18, please be sure that your parent/guardian is aware of your commitment to Toontown: Project Altis. Applications will be open for an unspecified, short amount of time, so be sure you don't miss out on your chance to join the team!

Once again, we would like to thank all the Alpha testers for their continued dedication and support for the game. We wouldn't be able to do it without you!

Stay tooned for April Toon's week, we can't say much about it right now, but we do know that it will be toontastic!
