Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
So, one of the neat things about the Halloween update is that for the first time we can create our own little adventure…sorta. With the introduction of the Make-A-Thing Shop we have the ability to create our own prizes, by picking and choosing what we want to make…and earning goodies accordingly. (or in some cases earning goodies and choose what we want based on that)
Bunny gave us a great overview on earning, choosing and crafting…but now let’s take it all a step further and look at what happens when you craft and add the items to YOUR Springfield.
First up…let’s take a look at the “Good Son” Hugo…
Remember…crafting Hugo and running through his questline is what will unlock the Spooky House for you. Details on the Spooky House and how to get it will be below as well…
WARNING Spoilers Below…including Dialogue
For those of you that don’t know…Hugo is Bart’s formerly conjoined twin brother, who was introduced to us in Treehouse of Horror VII. Not to go into too much detail here, as we’ll have a full profile on him a little later on…but basically the Simpsons lock him in the Attic because they think he’s the evil one.
Anyway….Hugo is a full character in TSTO, not a skin for Bart or an NPC. He comes with his own set of tasks and a full questline as well.
You’ll find Hugo in Make-A-Thing and can craft him by collecting the following:
Once you have all of those collected you’ll be able to Craft Hugo! Once crafted you’ll see the following pop-up:
You can choose to use Hugo now (by placing him) or if you’re not quite ready you can store him in your Inventory as well until you are ready. Once you’ve crafted him he’s yours forever….so even if you don’t use him right away he won’t disappear on you.
If you decide to use Hugo right away his questline will start up for you. Here’s the full dialogue version of his questline:
The Good Son Pt. 1
Aut0-start when Hugo is placed
Homer: Hugo, I want you to know, that even though you’re a weird little monster-face, I think of you as a son.
Hugo: I AM your son! Bart and I were conjoined twins. Don’t you remember?
Homer: Right, right. I really should remember that. Let me take you out to Krusty Burger, uh, son.
Hugo: All I eat are fish heads. But I have extra, wanna join me for dinner?
Homer: Absolutely. You get started and I’ll be right there.
The Good Son Pt. 2
Hugo: Dad? I missed you at dinner.
Homer: I’m sorry. I’m just not that much of an eater.
Hugo: You’re eating two buckets of chicken right now.
Homer: Yeah. I’m also incredibly inconsistent.
Homer: Yes, boy. I mean – Son?
Hugo: Are you embarrassed of me?
Homer: What?! No! No, no, no, no, no! Absolutely not. Oops, I think that’s someone at the door. Time to go to your attic, where no one can see you.
Make Hugo Sleep in the Simpson Attic- 24hrs, Earns $600, 150xp
The Good Son Pt. 3
Hugo: Oh, Pigeon-Rat, you’re my only friend. My family is embarrassed of me. Let’s you and I take a walk, and clear our heads. I wish I knew what all those coos and squeaks mean.
Pigeon-Rat: *Please don’t take us outside. We don’t want to be seen with you, freak!*
Make Hugo Walk the Piegon-Rat- 12hrs, Earns $420, 100xp
The Good Son Pt. 4
Marge: Hugo, your father and I are sorry that we’ve hidden you away all this time. I guess it’s the whole “evil twin” thing.
Hugo: But I’M the good twin.
Marge: Oh, that’s right. That was the twist.
Homer: Why do we keep forgetting that?
Bart: ‘Cause you’re a lard-head. Smell ya later, gang.
Reach Level 12 and Build Bart’s Treehouse
Make Hugo Clean His Room- 8hrs, Earns $275, 70xp
Make Bart Paintball in the Brown House- 2hrs, Earns $110, 27xp
The Good Son Pt. 5
Hugo: The more time I spend with my family, the more I’m convinced they are ALL evil twins. I have to find a place of my own.
Spooky House is 4×8 and will take 8hrs to build. Once Built the Pt. 6 will trigger.
The Good Son Pt. 6
Auto-start once Spooky House is placed & built
Make Hugo Nap at the Spooky House- 16hrs, Earns $500, 125xp
And that completes Hugo’s questline…and unlocks the ability to built Spooky Houses!
Here’s a quick rundown on the Spooky House and what it does…
Unlocked: During Part 5 of the Good Son. Must craft at Make-A-Thing.
Unique: No, you can have as many as you’d like. You’ll just have to craft each one…and each time you craft one the amount of items needed increases slightly
Earns: During Halloween each Spooky House you have will earn 1 Bronze Treat Bag every 24hrs. I suspect they’ll earn $/xp once Halloween is over.
Character Use: Hugo will have a permanent 16hr task associated with the Spooky House, Nap at the Spooky House.
Some of you are having difficulties getting the Spooky House to trigger. If this is happened to you check out this post.
