ToonsTunes Goes Vocal!

Jul 10, 2011

SAN RAFAEL, California, July 11, 2011—The popular space-themed virtual world and online music destination for kids, ToonsTunes, is today announcing a membership launch and a host of new features to be added to the world. One feature really has kids talking; singing. Tooners have always been able to create professional sounding music, having created more than 22,000 songs so far, but the only singing that was available was pre-recorded voice samples from other artists. Now, Tooners have a voice.

Paul Bohan the founder and CEO for ToonsTunes added that, “Kids have a blast mixing music and discovering new instruments, but now they can go even further by writing their own lyrics, practicing their vocal skills, and really perfecting the craft. Not only do they get a better feel for how much goes into creating good music, but they also receive positive feedback from other users!”

Song creation on ToonsTunes is a snap. Kids can mix all kinds of instruments ranging from guitar to cowbell and choose from a large collection of genres. With the voice feature kids will be able to sing into a computer microphone and create the sound they want, even if they want to sound like one of the Chipmunks. The possibilities are endless!

As with all things on a site aimed at kids, voice has to be monitored to ensure the safety of the users. Bohan says, “You can’t trust even the most advanced filters to catch everything.” The site has taken extra precaution by ensuring that every song will be listened to and reviewed by a live moderator before entering the ToonsTunes universe.

After making a song users can perform it on stage in front of a ToonsTunes crowd with their band mates or share their creations via email, blogs and Facebook, or even turn it into an mp3. Sharing songs gives users the chance to level up and earn free Dymonz, the sites version of cash. With Dymonz, kids can buy member-only items without an actual membership. If Tooners want access to everything the ToonsTunes world has to offer they can become paid members. The company offers a one-month, three-month, six-month, or twelve-month subscription.

In order to make an impressive game do the following. Use anime or COD 3D style graphics. Don't use graphics bellow a Wii U capability  (Especially in a generations with flat screens) Use lots of data such as voice and Music and sound effects. I mean use allot, because you don't want repetitive sound effect playing every 3 seconds. The more VOICE DATA the more cool your game will seem as long as it's GOOD voice acting. Make the multiplayer as innovative as the story. Most developers fail to do this. I mean just look at Halo 4. If your game has good physics and gameplay and challenge and ONLINE PLAY then those are feature you won't be lacking. Also add in your own EXCLUSIVE features that will make a big attraction to your game if it's actually good. Don't forget to advertise the game.
