A lil note from Wookiee

Hey howdy hey Addictereenos!  How y’all doing?

TSTO Blogging isn’t all about the game.  One of the main reasons I love this gig so much is just that I love the Simpsons universe and always have since I started watching at the tender age of 8.  My fanboy flag waves high for the show and even when I’m not writing or moderating or doing something connected to TSTO Addicts, I’m watching the show because it makes me happy.  I like to laugh and jokes are never in short supply when it comes to Homer and company.

So, the other day, I was re-watching some of my favorite episodes and in the middle of S3:E20 “Colonel Homer”, I said to myself, “Self… this would make one heck of a level update in TSTO.”  SO many great ideas that could make a new level for my favorite game.  Even more, I wondered how many Addicts have watched an episode and thought the same thing.  Follow this with some discussion between Team Addicts and Voila!… we decided to find out with a NEW CONTEST!!!

Yes we said a BRAND NEW CONTEST!!!!  Here at Addicts HQ summer is in full swing and we’ve completely lost our minds, wait did we ever have them to begin with? 😉  We’re once again giving away FREE Donuts!!!  We’ve really & completely lost our minds!  So let’s talk about this Contest (before we change our minds)…..

SHOWOFF REMINDER: Itchy & Scratchy

So while we are all winding down from an AWESOME Stonecutter Event followed by a New Level and a Mini Event, I figured it would be fun to play around and spend some down time designing.

Not too long ago we had the Itchy & Scratchy Studio brought into our games. Now, I am curious just exactly what you did with it. Some simple? Something spectacular? Have any animal hedges or balloons outside? Got it all alone? In an Industrial Area? SHOW ME!!!
