    This whole thing makes me sort of tempted to "embrace the mother", but I just don't know if it would be a good idea, being possessed and all. Besides, where would I get the fruit?

    You can buy it right at the curio shop in the beginning or let the welcome wagon leave it in your fridge. Pull out the fruit before the men in black show up...

    No, I know how to get it normally, but I already defeated the mother, so idk if that's still possible. I'll check though. The thing is, it would be kind of strange to eat the fruit AFTER the whole thing is over. I don't think my Strangerville hero would approve. I was considering resetting the mystery, however, but I was planning to wait until Max Villareal grew up, and have him revive the mother, but he's still a child in my game.

    I'm just now looking into this pack. I got pulled away from Sims 4 (life stuff) but this theme seems to be right up my alley.

    You can really see their excitement in trying something completely new. I really enjoyed it. Didn't think it'd be a part of my gameplay but I really enjoyed the overall weirdness and epidemic breaking out in a small town.

    Definitely would like to see something like this again story wise down along the line. Happy to see some fresh new stuff added to the mix of things in the sims.

    I really enjoy this one B) Thanks for StrangerVille! Vampires is still my fav GP but I can not imagine my game without StrangerVille, so different and funny... the world is BEAUTIFUL <3
    This is my new steampunk house:

    After watching this video, I see that the SimGurus really are good people... they enjoy what they’ve made... and maybe they care about their fans...

    I moved my family to Strangerville :) I'm collecting evidence ;) and I do like the different story interaction <3

    I really enjoyed that Maxis Monthly, it was nice to find out that Strangetown was also some inspiration!

    Finally got time to see the stream. Also, I wanted to wait until I had seen a bit more of the pack.

    Yay, it was fun! Thanks for sharing this kind of stuff with us. I really appreciate it.
    • So happy that you will look into liberating objects. I follow a bunch of nice builders on the gallery and I look forward to what they can do with it and getting it into my game.
    • Thank you for going all out creepy. It was great and opens up new fun stories for me
    • I am having a great time with the story pack. Please give me more. It was easy to weave into my overarching story for my sim and I can adapt it to other different stories
    • Bossfight!!! It made my little MMO-<3 so so happy to see that in the sims. Sparring, the bossfight, vampiric sparring from that pack. These little shots of adrenaline make a huge difference for me.

    Dag dag!

    Loved this Monthly (well, okay, I love 'em all). It was so great to see the Dev's enthusiasm and happiness with a job well done. Bravo for trying something new, and double Bravo for pulling it off so well!
    Plus, the Bob Bathrobe is back! The Bobthrobe!

    It's pretty good. If you're looking for something a little more linear with additional features that add on to returning features (like the Military career) then I'd say it's definitely it's worth playing. I'm hoping they'll add onto this or, at the very least, create a few more game packs in the same vein.

    Well I have to tell you I have mixed emotions about this pack but seems storyline it is great I guess right now I'm going be very lazy i don't feel like beatting the mother i would like to have the world normal in my game because I don't want to see a lot and other parts of my world with broken necks and broken limbs LOL as you see the stranger things. But it will be nice if you can find a mod that will break it and just have the world I just want the world I don't want to play the storyline does anybody know how to get past that I doubt it because the game is still brand new but if anybody does please hit me up and let me know I really appreciate it and then I was thinking about buying the game but until now that's okay I just watch other people play it. :# :s ;)
