Update: Rundown post is live. It should answer most of your burning Krustyland questions….you can find it here
Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Ok guys, the update is live in the app store (right now it’s only on Android. If you don’t see it restart your device and search the app store for Tapped Out). While I’m working on the rundown post i wanted to give you guys the spoilers we originally received from EA for Act 1.
So for those who want to know click below, if you don’t want to know don’t click below….
For those concerned, we’re not changing our Spoiler policy. These are Spoilers we received directly from EA as part of their new program to reach out to the TSTO Community. Because these are confirmed by EA and we have the authorization to release them, we’re releasing them. Beyond the information provided directly by EA we’ll still operate as business as usual and we will always warn you before spoilers are posted.
For those viewing a little before showtime, sit tight and it’ll show up in the video below shortly. For those viewing during the live stream, just hit play and you’ll get tuned it. You also have the ability to go back (rewind) in case you missed something. 🙂 And for those joining after the live stream, you can view the recording of the video right here.
No matter how, or when, you’re viewing thanks for watching and we hope you have fun!
It is teaser time in Springfield! In this week’s episode, we’re talking offshore banking, Krusty losing his shirt and the latest teaser released about the all-new Itchy and Scratchy Land event! Plus, we’ll be talking EA’s rollback bug “solution” options.
And as always we’ll also be fielding your questions! So join us live for all the fun! (of course, if you can’t make it live watching the replay is still pretty awesome too!)
We’ve been working behind the scenes for the last couple of weeks to get on track with a new program EA has launched in conjunction with bloggers and TSTO community leaders (ie ourselves, the forums etc). With this program, EA plans to give those community leaders a sneak peek at event content and info so that we can share some of the details with you!
We’re thrilled to be working with EA anyway we can to bring you guys as much info as possible!
We’re all under NDA, so please bear with us as we can’t share EVERYTHING we know until EA tells us we can (which is usually how we operate anyway). But they have given us the green light to release some basic info about the next event.
So no more guessing, we now know WHEN the next event will start and WHAT the next event will cover! Pretty exciting stuff huh?
So I know there are a bunch of you who like to remain spoiler free (and this, to me, will not violate our spoiler-free policy as this is information provided to us directly from EA. They’re giving us the go-ahead to share…) I’ll post the WHAT below the fold. However, I will say the next event will start (as we predicted earlier this week) on Wednesday, May 30th.
So be prepared on Wednesday, May 30th for the event launch
Ok now that that is out of the way…the time has come for the Teaser content we discussed yesterday to hit our games! As long as you’ve downloaded the app store update from yesterday you’ll have access to the teaser content.
So what’s in store for us? Well, a little offshore fun for starters! Things kick off with an auto start from everyone’s favorite clown…Krusty
There is currently an App Store update available for download in your App Stores…
While on the surface, and once you download it, it doesn’t look like it does all that much (icon/splash screen don’t change)…it will bring us a little teaser as to what’s next in TSTO.
However, the teaser won’t hit until TOMORROW (May 23rd) at 10 am ET, 1400 GMT. So, for now, it’s really nothing to see in your game. Nothing will change, that’ll you’ll really notice anyway.
So for now, here’s a taste of what’s to come tomorrow…
Oh and this puts us on a path for the next event to hit right as May is coming to a close…so May 29th/30th (end date for teaser in the files is the 30th, but that doesn’t mean that’s when the next event will hit. We’ve seen teasers end after an event has hit)
Time has expired on the Springfield Jobs! Yes, the plug was pulled officially at 10am ET (about 20 minutes ago). No extending this one!
Already longing for something to do in TSTO? Have no fear…another update is on the way! Yes, the next mini event has hit the files (but it is NOT live in the game yet….so don’t ask me where it is, it’s not here yet). This one will run for 2 weeks…ends May 23rd…so it’ll give you fun stuff to do while we wait for the next big event to hit TSTO.
Curious about what’s in the mini event? Here’s a clue…
Thoughts? Questions? Comments? Concerns? Share em below, while we all await the next update!
Yesterday, saw a very minor in-game update to our games which launched a little teaser for our next event! According to the files, the next event is tentatively called The Springfield Jobs. We’ll see what actually happens when it hits…
And today, just a little while ago, saw a new episode tie-in to work our way through for Sunday’s new episode of The Simpsons….”Homer is Where the Art Isn’t”. So let’s take a look at both updates and what changes they’ve made to Springfield…
Here’s a little early Christmas gift for some of you…(and if you celebrate Chanukkah, well then this is right on time)…I’m going to help you plan ahead for the coming days of the Invasion before Christmas with your character donut budget.
While I won’t always do this, Christmas puts me in a good mood (and this update is really good)…that I wanted to do something nice for you guys. Getting a lot of questions about if characters will be premium or not, so I figured…why not?
So let’s get to the list! (make sure you check it twice!)
MINOR SPOILERS ahead, if you don’t want to know don’t look below…
Well…better late than never right? We’ve got our major event update…and it’s about time!
This time we’re (as suspected) going Musical!
Note: At the moment this is only live on Android…. on iOS and Android now
I just got home from work and have a Tiny Addict to feed and get to bed. So i’ll be back with more info later tonight..but for now, remember this is an APP STORE update, which means you have to go into the app store to download it. If you don’t see it, search Tapped Out and see if the update is available.
Also, things get started with some auto dialogue, followed by a 6s task for Lisa. This will be followed by another 6s task for Lisa, which is followed by a task to build the Rock Stage (Free) and a 10s task for Homer. This will trigger SOME of the event stuff…
Back with more later on tonight… Ok the Tiny Addict is in bed, I’ve reviewed the files, converted over 5,000 images (yikes!) and have everything ready to go. More details below the fold…
Act 1 Ends/Act 2 Starts August 15th
Event Ends September 12th
I’m sure regular readers have noticed I haven’t been around as much with school going on. Life has been crazy and between school, work, and life, there’s not a lot of free time. One thing that does bring me joy though in the moments I have to myself is writing here, doing my geek podcast, and playing the silly little mobile game which led to the writing gig in the first place.
Over the last week, I’ve been working on another speculation post based on the hints EA gave us with the take down of the Vacation Event. I love that they’re giving us teases which actually pan out and I feel it poignant to point out that a lot of folks guessed from the last one that Rommelwood Academy was in our futures. I wasn’t one of them but oh well. It definitely fits into the idea of Military Miseducation.
But wait!?! Didn’t the most recent one thing say something about misfires in connection to the military? I don’t see anything which falls into that category unless you count the premium missile with a drawing of Homer on it so it while I initially thought about scrapping this entire post as being too late to matter, instead of wasting the time it took to get it done, I figured it couldn’t hurt to still present my ideas. Heck… even a broken clock is right twice a day so why not prognoscticate like the Wookstradumb@$$ I am?
