We're so excited to get this update out in time for Halloween, particularly because we made a handful of special Halloween oobmobiles only available during the event.
So what are oobmobiles?? Here's a bit of background on the update:
This entire update stems from us having no impulse control and running with every dumb idea that crosses our minds.
We were debating about what incentive we could provide for folks to fully level up ooblets without goofing with the dance battle balancing, and it came down to either a congratulatory “got-to-level-10” hat they could wear orrrr…
We picked oobmobiles. Now your ooblets can ride around in little cars!!!
It took a lot of fiddly work but the results are better than we could have hoped for. Way better than a lousy hat.
There are some barriers to getting your ooblets driving though:
We also tweaked the ooblet level requirements so it won’t take as long to get to level 10 and gain access to oobmobiles, but still keeps it a fun longer-term goal.
You can also buy oobmobiles at the kiosk in the DOV regardless of whether or not you have any ooblets that are licensed, but you won’t be able to equip them on ooblets until they’re licensed. Currently, we have a kiosk that picks a different random oobmobile to be available each in-game day. During events, there might be a special event oobmobile kiosk that does the same for event-specific oobmobiles. And speaking of which:
Halloween Oobmobiles are available for a limited time!
While the Halloween Event is running, you’ll be able to snag some unique spooky oobmobiles from the Halloween oobmobile kiosk in the DOV. The oobmobile available will change each in-game day.
If you haven’t leveled any ooblets up to 10 yet, you can still stock up on the event oobmobiles (if you can afford them) to save for when you do have licensed oobs. And if you miss the event oobmobiles, they’ll be back next year! And we absolutely cannot condone you fiendishly modifying your system clock to trick our poor gullible game into thinking it’s still Halloween!
As always, there are a few bugs with new updates. Switch players on v1.4.13: Dropping oobmobiles is currently broken and will result in a lost oobmobile. There's also a duplication bug where if you go into a dance battle, any oobmobiles assigned to followbabies will get duplicated in your inventory. Fixed in v1.4.16 which we're trying to get through Switch cert now and will hopefully get through later this week.
Be sure to share your screenshots and vids of your oobmobiles--we love to see your squads!
Thanks for reading and we hope you all have a great (and safe) Halloween!
