Hey Howdy Hey Alien Squishing Tappers!
Well….unless you’ve been living under a rock you know that Halloween has arrived in Springfield! A dark haze has over taken the streets of Springfield and Aliens are on the attack! By now we’re all busy squishing and stopping those aliens dead in their tracks….and earning as many Long Protein Strings as we can!
With this event EA is trying something new (for them) and releasing items/prizes in phases. Two prizes each phase, three phases, for a total of 6 prizes all together. For the third phase, which lasts 12 days and ends 11/12 (0800GMT), you can win 2 prizes by collecting Long Protein Strings. The first prize awarded at 6,000 Long Protein Strings is the DIET Sign.
Let’s take a closer look at this odd sign, and just what happens when you win it for your town…
WARNING Mild Dialogue Spoilers Ahead
Once you’ve collected 6,000 Long Protein Strings the DIET Sign will automatically be awarded to you and you’ll see this popup:
Much like Friendship Prizes, if you’re visiting a neighbor when you hit the 6,000 Protein String mark this message will still popup and your DIET Sign will be waiting for you in your inventory once you get back to your Springfield.
The DIET Sign will be placed in your inventory, so you’ll have to go into your inventory to retrieve it. Just tap on the “use” icon to place it in your Springfield:
Once you’ve won the sign you’ll see a task popup in your task book (no dialogue will kick it off). The task is…
Dial “D” For Diet
Place the DIET Sign
Once you’ve placed it then Homer will start some dialogue..
Homer: What is that? No! Noooooooo! Please God, no!
Tap the DIET Sign
So here’s the deal with the DIET Sign:
-Shows DIE until tapped. Once tapped the tree moves and DIET is shown.
-It’s 1×5 in size.
-No questline associated with it
-When tapped the wind blows as the tree moves
-Improves Obedience by 10 Points
So that about covers all the details on this scary sign!
