Ganz Delaying Tail Towns Figurine Shipments

by Justin on April 5, 2011

Ever since the launch of Ganz’s Tail Towns was delayed, many of you have been asking whether Ganz would at least hit their original target window for the activation of figurines, between April 4th – April 16th. Unfortunately, it appears that this will not be the case.

We’ve just heard from Robert, at our partner store Ameriwade.Com, who told us that Ganz had notified him that shipments of figurines to retailers are being held back until Ganz can finish rebuilding the Tail Towns game. Hopefully you pre-ordered Tail Towns figurines from a reputable retailer like Ameriwade that only charges you once they ship you the merchandise! If not, make sure to buy Tail Towns figurines from Ameriwade.Com in the future!

We understand that, as Tail Towns neared the beta launch, Ganz discovered a major issue and is working feverishly to correct it. Let’s try and stay positive and hope that the reward is worth the wait!

So that means Beta Testers will be picked soon?! I hope so!

Oops , I reread it, so I guess that means that the beta testers will be picked for not quite a while :(

Well it is good to hear something even if it’s not what you want to hear. It is good to know why the launch was delayed.

Wow, thank you Justin. I am excited to hear news, even if it means there is a delay, on Tail Towns. It will be here before we know it. I did not get to pre-order the figurines but I have a Hallmark that will be getting them. YAY!

It it really going to be June 10th?! That’s tomorrow!!

It’s been 3 months, and they STILL haven’t released this game. =P

Reply

maxnmum June 10, 2011 at 7:10 pm

so…here we are…MONTHS after their promised release and not even an update from Ganz in over 2 months? I understand issues can arise, what I can’t understand is why there hasn’t been some update in the past 2 months, even if all they did was thank us for our patience and continued interest and perhaps an approximate update on the release date? After all this time they must know more than they are telling us.

Copper June 13, 2011 at 5:52 pm

I feel the same maxnmum–I do not mind the wait but for them to keep us in the dark is not good PR–it takes the fun out of a game that has not even started.hey Ganz–poke,poke!!!

*sighs* I wonder when its going to come out!

Reply

maxnmum July 5, 2011 at 1:18 am

No word to retailers since they were told June 10thish which obviously has come and gone…at this point I don’t think its too far fetched to suspect they have canceled the project altogether, and oddly theres been no updates on “Amazing World” which was scheduled to open in July, which I guess could still happen since we are only in the first few days of July, however it is suspicious that they haven’t updated anything since late winter and to my knowledge none of the Amazing World merchandise has been even shown to retailers.
Its almost as if something catastrophic has plagued both projects, and they aren’t sure they can ever pull it off, or if it might be another year in development.

By the way, that random icon on my post looks exactly like me lol

Maxnmum I doubt they are going to cancel Tail Towns… tailtownsdaily has info from the ganz social media person and so yeah i bet its just late… REALLY LATE!

Reply

maxnmum July 14, 2011 at 3:49 am

I didn’t say they were canceling, I simply said I don’t believe its a possibility we can totally rule out. I don’t know what you’re seeing in tailtownsdaily but I saw a whole lot of nothing, no answers, no updates, nothing. Very Very poor PR. Whether they eventually release it or cancel it their handling of it all has been just plain wrong.

Yeah… I have completely lost interest in this game. They had me with the cute figures but the lack of cumminication to the public about the rebuild issues etc leaves alot to be desired.

For those of you tired of waiting for this game to come out I have a suggestion.

There is a free game, no price to sign up or keep your account open no credit cards needed etc This means you don’t have to worry about not making a payment and suddenly having account restrictions like many other games online.

There are restrictions for what sims different ages can have access to. The settings are General, Moderate and Adult. To gain access to the adult areas you must use age verify.

You can be anything you want from human, to butterflies, to bears, wolves, trolls, vampires etc and it’s completely free. It’s the same idea as Tail Towns with the open voice chat options etc. The difference being that the game is completely free and has actual live moderaters available in world if you find another user being bad. There are free items on alot of the sims that you can use to dress up your character and be anyone you want.

The clothing, objects etc that you find in the game are completely all created by other players. Many of the other players are also computer programmers and computer script writers etc which is why it’s so easy for the creaters of SL to run it. You can find some objects you have to pay for if you feel like wasting money but I have alot of fun with all the free stuff and avatars I find in world that are open for anyone to find.

This game that I play and really enjoy is called Second Life.

I have a feeling this game is what Ganz tried to base Tail Towns on but likely didn’t realise how complicated running this kind of program can be. This type of software you would be constantly updating and making changes to because no one has perfected it ergo Ganz likely being in a panic right now trying to get thier heads around it the same way the owners of SL did but this would require trusting your users. LOL

Is it hard to create the clothes on Second Life? what programs do you use?

Reply

Rue July 24, 2011 at 6:31 pm

lol u probably could anyways… just saying
So we have no clue when this is coming out?

Reply

Rue July 24, 2011 at 7:06 pm

wait 13 is just like the recommended age right? or is it actually the age u have to be in order to play?

Legendary August 3, 2011 at 6:43 am

Like every chat site apart from Club Penguin, you must be over 13 years old. This applies for facebook and many sites that are social networking in some form.

PK900 October 18, 2011 at 6:42 pm

It’s October…. Ganz totally canceled this.

What a waste! Oh well. As an Adult I love Webkinz World and I will be happy without Tails Town.
