Where The Hell…? Human Rupert

In this lil game of ours, it is easy to get lost and so focused into collecting items or unlocking characters that we tend to forget the lil things that make the game what it is. Like Where the HELL did these items come from and why are they in our games?

Well I am here to do just that for you. Let’s take a look at the Family Guy Series and find out just Where The HELL Did That Come From?

Rupert

In this post, I will be covering the Origin of Human Rupert. Why does Stewie’s stuffed animal look like a person? Does he look like this a lot? Let’s take a look at the TV Episodes to find out.

Season 5, Episode 1: Stewie Loves Lois
Stewie is at the park with his lil stuffed friend playing. Stewie, as usual, is annoyed by Lois and plots to cause her harm. Just then a giant strange dog shows up. Stewie tries to tell him to go away. It snarls and takes off with Rupert. Stewie panicks as Lois chases after the dog, tackles it, and pulls Rupert from its jaws. Sadly, Rupert is torn to pieces. Stewie begs him to hang on. Promises if he makes he will take him away, like to Hawaii as he has always wanted to. Cut screen to a scene of Rupert’s head on a buff mans body. Stewie and him splash in the ocean and then lay on their beach towels on the sand.

Human Rupert

Season 9, Episode 7: Road to the North Pole 
We see Human Rupert again in this episode, but just for a bit. It is during the opening credits that we catch a glimpse of the Snowman version of him that Stewie has created.

Human Rupert 1

 

So there are a few instances in which you can see Rupert in Human form. Silly way to bring a character in the game, but it works. Lol. Did you win him yet? Do you like his tasks? Have a favorite? Wanted a different task instead? Wanted just a lil stuffed Bear pouncing around instead? Tell me your thoughts below.

    Why do you insist Tinyco is listening? Players have repeatedly shown in polls they don’t like buildings bought with clams that drop quest or event items, it’s a pay 2 win system.

    The vast majority people do not want this, nor do I remember anyone ever asking to have the event extended by one day.

    If tinyco was in fact listening, they’d be doing the following:

    1) removing all buildings bought with clams that either ensure or give chances at drops for quest and event items “Remove pay 2 win”
    2) Not release events that require the player to play 24hrs straight neglecting sleep and their job
    3) Don’t make characters unavailable to like 95% of the players.
    4) Definitely don’t extend the event by 24hrs when the masses never asked for it.

    Recent poll showed Rupert was acquired by 3% of the people pole, there sere several hundred that took part. Absolutely atrocious odds. Yet Tinyco just hasn’t “gotten it” yet. Perhaps it’s time they make this game 100% free and make everything bought with clams at the moment free until they figure out how to create proper game where players “want” to spend money, not feel they “have” to spend money.

    • Out of curiosity what poll was that? Because we haven’t done our poll yet, we’re waiting for the event to end.

      TinyCo is making steps in the right direction. It’s still a new game, so I take little things like this (the change in the item drops, the inclusion of a mystery box that costs money, etc) as signs direct from player feed back that they’re listening.
      Are they ever going to please everyone? No. No one ever does. The critics will always be there. However, for most of the people they’re liking the steps they’re taking and that’s all we can ask for.

      At the end of the day, no one’s forcing you to play the game. It’s got to provide you with some level of enjoyment, and if it doesn’t then maybe it’s time to walk away.

  10.

  11. Sharing my last thought from the event. Before I complain, I DO think this was a nice way to release a character. While a bit of luck is involved, the chances of getting him are rather high for freemium players, and as long as he’ll be available again for clams, no one can really complain at free chances. Plus, you could also win 280 clams worth of other stuff. Pretty sweet for almost no effort.

    That said, I’m with the others where I’ve opened 10/11 of my chances, as I missed one on the first day. My last two items are Gold Digger Island and Rupert, and it’s tough to feel optimistic. I have to admit I partially blame TinyCo for not properly introducing the event. They need to have some kind of event announcement or notification or SOMETHING to let us know when these things are added, especially if it’s going to be so time-constrained. I ended up spending about 20 clams just to recover from the first day so I could get all the other opportunities possible… It’ll suck even worse if I still don’t get Rupert in the end.

    On the other hand, people got Rupert at every number, so I know it’s just random luck… So while upset, I’m still praying that my last attempt in 5 hours will be Rupert.

  18. Damn it.
    I opened 11 out of 12 boxes. Can you guess what present wasnt brought to the Tea Party? The only one I wanted! 😥
    The worst thing is, the only reasom I missed it was because it was on the first day and about an hour before the toy was supposed to change, I thought I better leave them off the task ready for the next toy because I never realised until the 2nd day that you just had to do the same tasks (dont think anyone did), imagine my suprise when I go on at 9 (noon pdt) nothing had changed. so I waited, thinking “any minute now it will change”. Gave up, checked back at 11pm (2pm pdt) still “change at noon”, so i put them on the task thinking maybe they’ve added a day and this will stay till noon tomorrow.
    wake up the next day to find out that it changed at 5am… So if I woke up at 3, I would have had the last prize too! But I had no idea when it would end 😦

    Sorry for the long story, it probably belongs in fridays upcoming wth post, but I just opened my last box, so thought I’d complain now whilst I still remember the dissapointment of peters pirate car being in the last box 😦
    Oh and I’m blaming Timy Co 100% for this, not that that will do/change anything lol

    • As of right now, no. But I agree with you it would be a nice feature to have! But keep in mind the game is still new (and TSTO is nearing 2 years old), so TinyCo will still tweak and change the game as it progresses until they find the right “formula”, so you never know what the future holds 🙂

      Playing RPG games since childhood, I see this as no different than the Legends of Zelda or other games I played where not every time I did an action, did I succeed or have a payout I wanted. Some I had to redo many times. Or try over n over. I still LOVE the Zelda games to this day. Still will play many RPG games to this day. It is what YOU take out of it. Honestly.

      That is my take on it anyway. There are games out there I hate, due to I think they are boring too while others are delighted with them. All in personal taste. This is just one of many ways of gaming.

      • It is rigged in the fact that it needed EVERY LAST MINUTE to be completed and TinyCo dropped the ball by not releasing it sooner or compensating for the fact that they didn’t. Sure if I would have decided to spend 100 plus clams speeding everything up I’d be fine and have won Rupert. Got to love pay to win games. Events should be able to be won and COMPLETED without paying if you put the time in. This event has seriously hurt my attitude towards this game even if I unlock Rupert tonight.

        Like

        • I can understand why you feel that way. The timing thing was an error to me too. I am not sure what happened. Something prevented them from releasing it at the time they wanted. So it was a scramble to try and fix it and still give everyone 24 hours instead of 12. Overall cool thoughts and intentions on giving away items that cost clams for Free to players. Execution did need some work. It still seemed to work better than the some of the other events I have seen. I know there is a mind set of must have it all, but in a game of chance…that usually means you got to pay for it. At least in the real world. I did however see players still get all prizes and not spend one single clam. It all comes down to how your game plays out on how you will view the event. Sorry it was not in your favor.

          Let them know your thoughts. Send them constructive criticism. Likes/Dislikes…etc. They do listen. That much is obvious. 😉

Or you could make it easier on yoyrself with a little cash. This in contrast to King Butt, where it was virtually impossible without spending money. I bought my first clams on this event and opened all but one on day one…no rupert or car. Glad for the extra day which i suspect will pay a lot of Ruperts.
