Pigs In Space!

Since time immemorial mankind has looked to the birds with envy and wished for their feet in the sky.

From Icarus and his wax wings to the Wright Brothers rickety wooden chassis, from Leonardo Da Vinci's extravagant flying machines to Howard Hughes' oversized Spruce Goose... we've looked at taking to the air as one of our best and most sought after experiences.

Well, the homestead is no different, and Doc think's he's found a way to give us the rush of airborne travel... Ballooning!

As usual, it's a popup!

That will kick off four missions with two wrappers (all details HERE) and a three (yes, THREE) step build (all details HERE).

The build in question is the Launching Platform, where we'll be experimenting with Doc's balloon ideas and sending a few critters into the air...

They'll be buyable in the market... with Guinea Pigs used first, then the Pigs.

They'll take Balloon Gas to "inflate" which is a request item and available from most brag posts, then take on one of three different styles.

The Guinea Pigs will take 10 each...

...and the Pigs take 15.

The wrapper missions will require finding one of each of the animals on your homestead.

We'll also see a new free gift and premium crop...

...and, of course, a collection!

So let's get pumped up!
