Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Popping in with a few quick changes to the game today…and to clarify something many of you are seeing when visiting neighbors.
Alternate Universe Gil arrived in Springfield today, pandering an item from his universe. In addition to the Gil Deal, more premium items hit the stores today. And many of you are asking about seeing Bart inside a giant robot while visiting neighbors.
With so many additions, and questions, I figured we should break it all down for you guys..
First up…Gil’s deal.
Now, before you even ask…we’ll have a Should I buy up on this soon. But the questline will earn you more Dark Matter (like Robo Burns)…that’s the only other benefit. So if you want it, grab it. If you’re on the fence give me a little bit to assess it and put together the Should I Buy post 🙂
Anyway…you’ll see old Gil roaming the streets of your Springfield, waving around like his pants are on fire…
Once you tap on him he’ll bring you an offer from the future…..oooohhhh ahhhhh, the future:
Gil: Okay, Gil. Stay calm. You transcended the boundaries of space and time to find this deal. Hello citizens of Springfield.
Homer: Oh great! Now I’m being bombarded by ads from other dimensions!
Gil: Just hear me out! Because your own little baby, Maggie, is back from the future where…get this…she’s no longer a baby!
Homer: Then what the hell is she?
Gil: She’s grew up to be every parents dream! A grungy, hard-living rock star!
And if you refuse (and let’s face it most of you will initially…)
Gil: Aw, how could you turn your back on your family like that? I’m like a brother to you, aren’t I? A long lost, dirty, thirsty brother.
And if you accept…
Gil: Ka-ching! Maybe next time I’m in town you can get Ol’ Gil some free tickets.
Homer: Sure! I can do that. As long as you stay away forever.
And again…I’ll have a Should I Buy up on her soon…but the Gil deal does leave when Act 2 hits…so you have until August 30th to purchase Rockstar Maggie, before she’s gone!
Now onto the other premium offerings that were added this morning…
Leaves stores September 13th
Leaves stores August 30th
Portal to Rigel 7- 75 Donuts, Earns $200,22xp/8hrs. Should I Buy Does NOT earn event currency for this event.
And a reminder of items added before that are leaving..
Efcot Center- 70 Donuts, Leaves August 25th. More details (and no it doesn’t come with snow…just the only image I had on the site already)
Super Collider- 70 Donuts, Leaves August 25th. Comes with a Black Hole via the questline… Should I Buy
And now the details you’ve all been waiting for….what’s up with seeing this in your neighbor’s towns:
As so many of you pointed out to me yesterday, this is most likely a visual glitch. This is NOT currently available in the game. But stay tuned for a later Act of this event when it should become available.
So don’t panic, don’t freak out. And don’t think you missed something…it’s coming. Patience. 🙂
And that’s it my friends…i’ll be back with Should I Buys on the new items above later on.
Thoughts on the new items? Any you grabbed instantly? Have you seen Bart walking around like that while visiting a neighbor? Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!
