Ive rummaged a bit in this board, most of the last posts are about early to late 2012 and it seems that since the announcement of an eventually official sequel the activity in these forums drastically dropped.
However i haven't found a officially canceled statement and i don't have access to every section of this board.
ZitatI know its hard but never say never. Indie games and Fan Games are a greater market / part of gaming than ever before. I wont give up ^^
even if its: mess with the best, die like the rest ^^ well see about that...
So i`m just curios, is anyone actually working on this project or this project dead?
ZitatThis isn't officially dead, we're just having sort of a hiatus.
Can you outline what you mean by hiatus
Is it because you mind about Copyrights or time/manpower?
What is the actual status of the project? I know that you guys finished a plot/script and that some of you are quite good at coding, but i haven't seen anything so far (graphics, plot or just a simple "tech-demo" with placeholders as graphics) after about 3 years.
I think having a playable demo or just a youtube video including about 2-3 riddles and one dialog could be motivating and perhaps attract more people.
ZitatIf you're interested in the project, you're welcome on board
I almost completed the story (german and english) I created a storyboard manager to improve management We collected lots of content out of Toonstruck 1 and 2 We got many concept arts from gos and other members of the team
The project isnt dead, its just a rough time. We (I) got really MUCH content and I think about a way to share it. I just dont want to make it accessible to the public because that would interfer our development process.
Just one thing i want to say: Your style doesnt fit the toonstruck style yet. perhaps you could try to improve this. furthermore you could try to draw backgrounds. Maybe this fits our style better

That sounds interesting.
Where can i download / read the story? All links i found are dead (megaupload and rapidshare...).
ZitatWe (I) got really MUCH content and I think about a way to share it.
I could suggest using a access-protected open source wiki. (tikiwiki or PhpWiki for example) Open source wikis allow us to generate different categorys and pages, so you can divide your content in scenes, characters, finished/unfinished etc. Most wikis have an simple fileupload so the designers can easily share their artwork, and they have a discussion page and file history as well.
Its online, everyone can edit it (by uploading his artworks for example or writing) or discuss it on the discussion page. At the end of each page we could write if someone is actually working on it or want to do it in the future. We could create user pages as well, so we have an overview of labor division.
So we always have a overview about what is finished/currently worked on/still required.
It would somewhat replace the function of this board. But in comparison to the board you have the advantage of separating content and discussion.
For example, if i read a thread in the artwork category, i first have to read multiple pages with discussion and small changes until i found the final result, while in the wiki i would first see the final/actual result and could switch to file history or discussion.

Sure, but take in mind that it was a quick try and drawn on squared paper .
But yes, I'm not that experienced in character drawing yet (especially not in comic characters).
