ToonFest & Schell Games Promos

About The Promos

Over the years, Jesse Schell and Shawn Patton of Schell Games have graciously volunteered to participate in promotional material for ToonFest. These two game designers are former developers of Toontown Online who have continued to stay involved with the Toontown community after its closure. They also attended ToonFest in 2017 and 2018.

Special thanks goes to Jesse Schell, Shawn Patton, and the wonderful marketing folks at Schell Games for working with me to make these videos possible!
