Hey Howdy Hey Space Tappers!
The Deep Space Homer mini event hit our Springfield’s and with it arrived a whole bunch (ok a few) of Space Themed prizes for our Springfields!
This event is designed to follow a series of tasks via the questline to unlock prizes. For each of the first 6 parts of Cheap Space Homer you’ll have to earn via various character tasks in order to unlock the prize for that part. Three of the 6 prizes are Deep Space Homer and animated tasks for him. Prizes 2, 4 and 5 are all Deep Space Homer related…
So let’s take a look at these Homer related prizes and just what happens when you unlock them in your Springfield…
As mentioned above these prizes unlock at various parts of the Cheap Space Homer questline. Deep Space Homer will unlock once you’ve completed Cheap Space Homer Pt. 2…earning 10 . Once you’ve unlocked him you’ll automatically see his character unlock popup:
And Deep Space Homer is part of the Deep Space Homer Character Collection…
So this is a skin for Homer and there’s no additional questline associated with him. But he is needed to continue along with the Deep Space Event.
Now once you unlock Deep Space Homer not every task will be unlocked. You’ll unlock two additional outdoor/visual/animated tasks for him as you progress through the event. Prizes 4 and 5 are both animated tasks for Homer.
Prize 4 unlocks the “Gather Inspect Specimens” Task…which is a hilarious 8hr outdoor task involving Homer and some Ants..
And prize 5 unlocks the Walk Like a Space Hero task, another fun 4hr outdoor task…
Again these are both basically outdoor/visual tasks for Deep Space Homer, and nothing more. I know some of you are questioning the animation…and saying you’re not seeing anything. It’s simply an animated outdoor task…nothing more. So if you watch Deep Space Homer and send him on those tasks you’ll see the animation… 🙂
