Futurama lives on in TSTO…

Will there ever be a Futurama Tapped Out? While it may seem far-fetched at this point ~ I say… never say never!

Numerous sources reported that Matt Groening said (at Comic-Con in July 2013) that there will be a Simpsons/Futurama crossover either as The Simpsons’ Season 25 finale or Season 26 premiere. This would seem to hint that there could, at least, be an episode tie-in for The Simpsons Tapped Out (TSTO).

I for one, would cough-up beaucoup donuts for some Futurama content in TSTO. What might that Futurama content be? Well Bender would be as good a guess as any. The lovable but mischievous, insult spouting, robot is probably the most widely known and recognized character, right meat bags?

Until then, we can still enjoy some wonderful Futurama content in TSTO via the efforts of talented TSTO 2D artists. What is that you ask? It is art created in the TSTO game by placing various decorations like bushes, trash cans and the debris found on new squares of land that is usually cleaned up by Homer and Lisa.

Here are a couple of stunning examples…

First is the Planet Express Ship by Bunny Dud (or ‘Lite-Brite’ as I call her)…Bunny Dud's Futurama Planet Express Ship

This was actually done back in August at my request. I had planned to use it for a post, on my personal blog DrewDabble.com, that never came to fruition. My appy-polly-loggies to her for such a long delay before using it. You can see more of Bunny’s inspiring 2D art on her Flickr page. You can also check out her writing/blogging at TSTOAddicts.com.

Next is that outrageous scamp himself… Bender done by an artistic WookieeWOOKIEECORP's Bender

Yeah you heard me correctly… a Wookiee!  aka wookieecorp as he’s known at his home base TSTOAddicts.com (where you can read his blog posts) or as Joe Wookiee Riot (JWR) to his friends and neighbor-eenos at Tapped-Out UK.

Bunny and Wookiee were among the first friends I made when I ‘went social’ with my TSTO participation. I truly appreciate them and all the wonderful friends I’ve made; all due to a ‘life ruiningly fun’ game that I randomly selected on one extremely lucky day in late February 2013. It’s like I expressed in my DD Blog post…  “TSTO is much more than a game, it’s a lifestyle”.
