This post is dedicated to release dates of Poptropica… you may find it boring. 😉
I don’t know about you, but I’ve always felt like Poptropica had two teams of people making islands at one point. In my opinion, back in the olden days (like a couple years ago) when Poptropica was making islands like they were out of style, there was a sort of pattern in the island releases.
It started with Shrink Ray island. Even though I like it, it still isn’t a great island. Then Mystery Train (good), Game Show (bad), Ghost Story (good), S.O.S. (bad), Vampire’s Curse (good), Twisted Thicket (bad)… of course, this is purely my opinion.
I’ll stop judging after that, because the pattern is inconsistent afterwards. What do you think about my theory?
Here’s a nice piece of information: most of the old islands have already been remodeled. How do I know? Check out this xml file. It is a list of all the islands that have been updated: http://static.poptropica.com/game/data/game/game.xml
That’s a lot of islands. And they’re not all on there, so it isn’t just a list of islands to be updated. Do you remember my failed prediction that Spy Island would be the next updated? I made the prediction because the island, as far as I could tell, had already been uploaded. Basically, what I’m saying is, we might be able to track the Creator’s schedule of releasing these SUIs.
Time Tangled was announced to be the next updated November 20, and was released December 10. That’s a 30 day period in between there. Coincidence? I think not.
Thirty days from the time Mythology Island was announced to be updated would be February 7. I might be wrong, but expect it to be that day. And Creators, if you choose to change the date just to prove me wrong, I respect that. 😛
Also, it seems like Poptropica may have a language setting in the future! Check out the .swf file for the SUI settings menu: http://static.poptropica.com/game/assets/ui/settings/settingsPanel.swf
There are four different language settings to choose from! From what I can tell, it isn’t a released feature yet, but this sure is cool! 😀
