Deep Space Homer 2016 – Event Overview

Tapped Out has just gone “where no man has gone before”, deep into space. Sorta. We caught wind of a space-themed update a few weeks ago and teased it here on Topix so while we were not surprised to see it drop, we were happy that it finally came. Although this is considered a mini-event it does come with a decent amount of new goodies so I bring you the Deep Space Homer Event Overview. Follow me after the jump to discover all of the “far out” content that has landed our way.

And there you have it the complete content breakdown of the first-of-its-kind Deep Space Homer event. For a mini-event there’s a decent amount of content between the new releases and returning content. Please keep in mind that this event is only 14 days long and the first day is pretty much over at this point. I hope you enjoy going to deep space with the Simpsons. Stay tuned right here at Topix for more coverage of this out-of-this-world mini-event. Thanks for reading!
