Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Ever wonder what goes into creating an update for TSTO? Wonder where they come up with all the dialogue for these updates and just who’s writing them? Curious about what goes on in those writer rooms? Well Vulture.com found out all of that and more in a recent article they ran all about TSTO!
Vulture is currently closing out their Simpson’s Week. They’ve covered the Simpsons from every angle in a series of articles throughout the past week all leading up to the Season 26 Premiere on Sunday. And as part of their coverage they interviewed Stewart Burns a writer for TSTO and the Simpsons.
He had some pretty interesting things to say about TSTO and the whole article is worth a read. You can find the article, in full, over on Vulture but here’s a few of the highlights…
–Treehouse of Horror Update (Halloween 2014) WILL be coming AFTER Clash of Clones is over.
-The “Crazy Bananas” update Matt Selman tweeted about back in July was more than likely Clash of Clones…as the article reveals he wrote most of it.
-Actual writers from The Simpsons write the dialogue for TSTO.
-The writers know that most people playing the game are older adults who once loved the Simpsons (and admit that most of them are female) and they’re writing updates with THEM in mind.
-It’s possible Chester, and his unfinished shed, may make an appearance on The Simpsons in the near future.
-They love getting away with the fourth-wall humor in the game.
-They like writing for the game because it allows them to write for themselves and gives them an opportunity to poke fun at each other… some of the jokes are even aimed at the Simpson actors themselves because some play TSTO!
