As mentioned in the Rundown, it’s a bit different this time for the Outro becasue EA decided to throw in a nice surprise …
Kang and Kodos, woohoo !!
For Android players and a lucky few on iOS it’ll be so long ago you saw the first part of the message from Kang and Kodos I’ll recap it and then get on with the Outro and the twist.
Here’s what’s in this post:
• A Special Message From Kang & Kodos, part 1
• Outro tasks: Just Wait Till Next Year
• A Special Message From Kang & Kodos, part 2+
A Special Message From Kang & Kodos, part 1:
This message was set to pop up at the start of Act 1:
Kang: Another one of these silly Treehouse of Horror events? Don’t these humans ever tire of monsters, spooky decor, and jokes about Homer eating all the candy?
Kodos: How would we know? We haven’t been prominently featured in one of these events for years.
Kang: It’s an outrage! We used to rule the Treehouse of Horror! When did parodies of movies become scarier than aliens?!
Kodos: Perhaps we could get more attention by, as the humans say, “playing ball”. We could give them some sort of reward for completing the entire event this year…
Kodos: …and maybe next year the whole event will be about us!
Kodos: You’d rather just sit on your butt and read what everyone else is saying, like all the dummies playing this game?
Kang: I don’t have a butt! But fine, I’m in. Let’s “play ball”.
Pirate Kang: Behold my festive and holiday-appropriate costuming.
Kodos: Splendid! Can you even see how to fly the spaceship now?
Pirate Kang: No. But we’re in deep space. There’s nothing around us for mi— *CRASHES SPACESHIP*
Kang: Who parked their Tesla out here?!
SYSTEM: Complete all four acts and the outro to receive a special reward from Kang and Kodos!
Reward: 100 $$s, 10 XP
Outro tasks: Just Wait Till Next Year
As many of you know this triggers when you finish all parts from all 4 acts. The dialog will be in with the Act 4 Dialog Recap.
• Make The General Scold Springfield – 4 hours
• Make Springfielders Blame Homer – x 5, 4 hours
• Make Homer Deny He Ate All the Candy – 4 hours
A Special Message From Kang & Kodos, part 2/3/4/5 !?!:
This will show up when you complete the Outro.
It had me confused for a while, with four almost identical parts, but that’s so they didn’t run into bundle issues.
I’ll get to that after the dialog.
Kang: As you may recall, we promised to give you something for completing the event. As if anyone could recall anything after so many weeks.
Kodos: Tell me about it. It’s amazing a holiday that humans don’t even get a day off for can go on for so long.
Kang: But the joke is on you, silly human. Instead of giving you a prize, Kodos and I are instead going to invade Springfield!
Kodos: Wait, if we invade their town…then we’ll be in their town. Isn’t that just giving them us?
Kang: *scratches head with tentacle*
Santa Kang: Merry Christmas, human! We’re giving you the gift of us!
Kodos: Why are you dressed like Santa Claus now?
Santa Kang: Since “playing ball” got us more Treehouse time, maybe we can horn in on the Christmas event this year too!
Kodos: You know they’re not going to let us get away with that again, right?
SYSTEM: Thank you for getting into the spirit of Treehouse of Horror year after year! Please enjoy this special treat from us.
Reward: 200 $$s, 20 XP and …
The first 3 versions weren’t too tough to figure out –
• If you don’t have Kang or Kodos you will get both.
• If you only have Kang then you will get Kodos.
• If you only have Kodos then you will get Kang.
This means if you see that dialog you will end up with both Kang and Kodos and it won’t cost anything. Lovely !!
The fourth version is for players who had them anyway –
• If you already had both you will get 24 Donuts.
There’s also the usual free token for the Shattered Dreams box for everyone that completes the Outro too.
Back after the Calendar with a look at the Premium bundle.
