Poptropica Worlds: Coming Spring!

Hey guys, Shaky Skunk here. Sorry for not posting for so long.

About a week ago, Skinny Moon submitted a post on the Creators’ Blog that shocked the entire community – Poptropica Worlds (aka New Poptropica) was announced!

Currently, only “test dummies” are allowed in Poptropica Worlds, but we’ll be able to play it in Spring 2017! (Who knows, maybe it’ll be like 24 Carrot BETA and we’ll get to test it too.) Isn’t this exciting?

According to Skinny Moon, Poptropica Worlds will be hosted on Poptropica.com. Not to worry though, all of our old stuff (names, looks, items, etc) will be carried over. Along with our old accounts, we’ll also be getting:

  • A new look!
  • New, exciting Worlds to explore
  • Favorites from the original Poptropica, remastered for Poptropica Worlds
  • One account for everything Poptropica! (I assume this means we’ll be able to use the same account for both mobile and desktop?)
  • Your very own customizable home
  • More costumes than ever
  • Daily prizes and awesome games
  • And more to come…

More of our questions were answered in this Q&A, so give it a read if you haven’t already. I think we should wait a while before we judge Poptropica Worlds, or at least until we get more information about it. SS out!

January IOTMs: The Time Traveling Genie

Hey, guys, Vampi here.

Skinny Moon released a post last week about this month’s Islands Of The Month, or IOTMs for short. This month is Time Tangled Island and Arabian Nights Island. Due to this, normally you’d get 500 for a first-time finish and 300 for a repeat finish, but since Arabian Nights is an episodic island, you’ll get 1500 for first-time finishes and 900 for repeats.

Also, Captain Crawfish, being the captain he is, decided to make the walkthroughs for Time Tangled and each episode of Arabian Nights.

For Time Tangled, click here, and for the Arabian Nights episodes, click here for Episode 1, here for Episode 2, and here for Episode 3.

That’s it on my side. If you need me, I’ll be watching charity speedrunning marathon Games Done Quick. Keep poppin’ it!

Costume Wonderland!

Despite a bit of inactivity in the first couple of weeks in December on the Creators’ Blog, there have been three posts in the past four days! The two subjects? Wimpy Wonderland Island and the #MyPoptropicaCostume contest.


#MyPoptropicaCostume Updates

If you’ve read our post about some upcoming “very interesting stuff,” then you’ve probably wondered, like most of us, exactly what that meant. Well, it seems as if it was about the #MyPoptropicaCostume contest (although I was slightly hoping for news about the ‘New Poptropica’). But, who knows, maybe something will be announced tomorrow on New Year’s Day! 😉

First of all, like the image above shows, today was supposed to be the last day for entering your costume, but it’s been extended to the second of January! A little gift from Poptropica, I suppose. Although, that’s not even the fun part.

stuffThere will be 2 grand prize winners! That means not just one, but two Poptropicans will get a 6-month membership, and — to me, most excitingly — their costume will be able to be purchased from the Store! Along with all these great goodies, it will be featured on Home Island on one of the Poptropicans.

We get to vote on costumes! Yes, you read that right. There will be 20 costumes that we can vote on, and the 10 with the most votes will win. The prizes of being one of the runner-ups are nearly just as good; you get a 3-month membership and your costume will still be available in the Store later in 2017!

Good luck, Poptropicans!


Wimpy Wonderland Peeks

If you’re interested in what goes on behind the scenes of islands, here’s another batch of some animations and drawings, this time of Wimpy Wonderland! Since it’s one of December’s IOTMs, it’s fitting, and what’s more, it will still be open to everyone until January 2nd! I don’t know about you, but does it seem like a lot of important things are ending the second? Why the second, when Wimpy Wonderland is featured as a December island? Maybe there will be an update that day…or the day after…hmm. Still, here are some of the behind the scenes peeks:

This animation is of Greg and Rodrick, the two feuding brothers:

A Happy Snapshot!

Snapshot!

Since it would be hard to keep up with updates on a page, I figured I could post whenever a new Snapshot was updated! You can either guess which island the Snapshot is from on this post or on the Snapshot! page. A little holiday present from me. 😉

#124 – Guessed by Bendy Flyer!

Make sure to read all the rules, and if you guess correctly, you are emailed my Poptropican’s username and you get put on the Hall of Fame page! Pretty cool. You can also see (almost) all the Snapshots ever guessed on the Previous Snapshots! page.

Have fun!


Happy Holidays!

Poptropica, as always, wanted to send a happy holidays to all you Poptropicans out there! Despite in my last post saying the Creators didn’t seem that busy, Skinny Moon and Captain Crawfish have made a post about how there would be an update next week.

Very interesting,” they called it. Perhaps updates on the New Poptropica? I won’t get my hopes up, but it’s still a possibility that it could be a holiday present for us.

Speaking of holidays, exactly what holidays are there nearby?

  • Hanukkah (evening of December 24th – evening of January 1st)
  • Christmas (December 25th)
  • Kwanzaa (December 26th – January 1st)
  • New Year’s Day (January 1st)
  • Three Kings’ Day (January 6th)
  • Lunar New Year (January 28th)

So, happy holidays! 😀

Countdown to Christmas: Days 2 and 3

People of Poptropica

Seashell here! I had requests to do something Poptropica-related for 1 day, so I’m gonna do top 4 winter-based islands. And I’m also gonna do top 3 Christmas movies. The rankings for top Christmas movies comes from Rotten Tomatoes, and the islands were judged from the authors of POP. PS… the islands aren’t really ranked. They’re like the best 4.

So, our top 4 winter themed islands are…..

Wimpy Wonderland, Survival episodes 1+2, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and Cryptids (cause’ of Himalayan scene). Congrats to those islands!

#3 for best movie is….

Holiday Inn! (Never heard of it but whatever)

#2…

Miracle on 34th Street!!!

And number one is……

To be announced tomorrow!!

J.K. Yall’ really need to stop fallin’ for that.

It’s a Wonderful Life!!!

OK, those aren’t my favorites, mine are Rudolph, A Christmas Story, and National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.

Seashell out, and merry Christmas!! Ho ho…

It’s an HQ Wonderland!

Despite December being one of the busiest times of the year, the Creators Blog has been rather bare. Still, there are some things we have to cover. Before that, though, I just wanted to point out that the beach umbrella is in the header for the southern hemisphere. 😉 It probably isn’t fun seeing all these winter-themed thingswhen it’s summer for you!


Winter Wonderland

If you haven’t popped over to Poptropica recently, you may not have noticed that Home Island’s mainstreet is…snowing! might as well be in the southern hemisphere because it’s been pretty warm where I am recently, but at least Poptropica is keeping up the spirit.
Here’s a GIF (soft or hard g?) for you if you can’t get on Poptropica yet:

winter-2016

As always, the Store is featuring their winter items, so go check it out if you haven’t gotten them yet! Remember that if you complete Wimpy Wonderland and PoptropiCon, you’ll get even more credits to spend!

JK, I had ya there, didn’t I?
The real number one is All I Want For Christmas Is You by Mariah Carey!!!

You may not think these five songs are the top five in your head, so tell me what your top 5 are in the comments. I know my number one is Santa Claus is Coming to Town, you know, like the ones where they go really high on Santa Claus is Coming To Town… and I also like the song I Want a Hippopotamus For Christmas. Ooh, have you seen that commercial on TV where the little girl sees a hippo and then she wants all of her Christmas presents to have hippos on them?? And then on Christmas Day she looks out the window and sees a deer…..

Sorry. Got sidetracked. Well, I’ll see you tomorrow with Day 2 of Christmas countdowns!

I hope you enjoyed this post, even if you don’t celebrate Christmas.
