Yeah, well, I’ve been refreshing the PCB for a while and found this…
We’ve announced the grand-prize winner of the Create Your Dream Island contest. To read about the winning entry, Arabian Nights Island, click here.
We’re also featuring the 10 runners-up, in alphabetical order. Today’s runner-up is:
Shakespeare Island, submitted by Kailey W. of Minnesota!
The pitch: Players help Shakespeare put on a Romeo and Juliet play. Players sign up to be an actor, backstage organizer, or costume designer. But during the show, another actor gets stage fright and players will have to dress up and sing the song.
Why we liked it: First of all, who doesn’t love the Bard? Second, from the costumes to the scenery, this would be an excellent setting for a Poptropica Island. Last but not least, Kailey’s idea to let the player take on one of a few different roles would be an interesting game mechanic for us to explore. This was a very well thought-out entry!
We asked Kailey, whose avatar name is Red Grape, a few questions. Here are her answers!
Poptropica Creators: How did you come up with the idea for your Island?
Kailey: I’ve always had a passion for theatre so I thought it would be a fun idea.
Poptropica Creators: How did you react when you found out you’d won?
Kailey: I was excited. I never thought that my idea would’ve made it this far.
Poptropica Creators: How long have you been playing Poptropica?
Kailey: For about five years.
Poptropica Creators: Which Island is your favorite?
Kailey: Mystery Train.
Poptropica Creators: What 3 things would you want with you on a deserted island?
Kailey: 1. Food 2. Water 3. And a prepped helicopter
All the world’s a stage, and we’re glad to have players like Kailey!
