Hiya, everyone! I know I just posted stuff on the Poptropica: Forgotten Islands black friday sale, but I have a Daily Pop sneakpeak that is clearly from Mocktropica.
There you have it folks! Mocktropica has an island creator. I totally called it. This raises the obvious question of “Why is there an island creator/editor in Mocktropcia?” All we know about Mocktropica is that we have to save Poptropica from a bunch of game-breaking bugs. Maybe the island editor/creator is to…
- Create a safe haven to perform commands from
- Edit the island to fix glitches (although this doesn’t seem like something that would be fixed by changing the weather. 😛 )
- Do something with CYODIC (Create Your Own Dream Island Contest, although this is unlikely since results are due after Mocktropica is scheduled to release.)
Then there’s the whole thing about the demo at the bottom. This raises loads of questions:
- How will we pay for the full version?
- Are we really going to be using a demo version, or are the creators just messing with us?
- If it is a demo, why doesn’t it say “demo” along with “pro home edition” at the top?
- Why on earth is there a sliced coconut and a pineapple on the “demo version has expired” banner?
If you look closely, the last four rows, villain, fun, and difficulty, seem to have weird options that follow them. They are:
TERRAIN: TUTORIAL EASY NORMAL EXPERT IMPOSSIBLE
VILLAIN: NATURAL URBAN SPACE DREAMS VOLCANO
FUN: OBVIOUS SECRET MALE FEMALE ONE MANY
DIFFICULTY: NONE SOME LOTS TOO_MUCH CALL_THE_COPS
It seems that the options should be switched to say this:
DIFFICULTY: TUTORIAL EASY NORMAL EXPERT IMPOSSIBLE
TERRAIN: NATURAL URBAN SPACE DREAMS VOLCANO
VILLAIN: OBVIOUS SECRET MALE FEMALE ONE MANY
FUN: NONE SOME LOTS TOO_MUCH CALL_THE_COPS
Moar questions arise:
- Am I right?
- If I am, was this intentional?
- If it was, will we have to fix this in the game?
- In other words, is the island editor also glitched so much that we have to fix it?
- Do the “TERRAIN” options point to themes for future islands? (E.g. a dream themed island [this could be CYODIC], a volcano themed island, etc.)
I think that’s all. If you have any theories or ideas about Mocktropica/this daily pop post, post them in the comments below.
And, once again, happy
Thanksgiving Turkey Day! 😀
EDIT: That’s weird. It’s like WordPress doesn’t think this post exists. I didn’t get an email, and it’s not on my Reader page… 😕
