Carnival Art, New Worlds, Upcoming Comic, & Holidays

Hey Poptropicans! Quick update with some recent tweets.

First off, the Creators released another piece of Monster Carnival concept art.

I think my favorite is the bottom left. 😛

The Creators also gave us a sneak peek of an upcoming Land feature. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but we will create… A WHOLE NEW WORLD!!! XD

I don’t know about you guys, but this looks amazing to me. Anyone getting a “Spore” vibe? Anyway, this is apparently a “prototype of player’s world management screen for Poptropica Land.” 😀

In other news, we have a Poptropica Comic sneak peek to share!

Hehehe… XD

Before I go… Happy Veterans Day! You may not celebrate the occasion, but it’s still good to just say thank you for those who have protected you. On that note, Poptropica just can’t wait for Thanksgiving!

Hmm… Now I’m craving turkey and corn on the cob… 😛

ptfp-mci-background.jpg

Hey guys! Most of you have probably noticed the new background to add spookiness for Monster Carnival, but did you notice the text in the header? “We’ll be your light in the dark with all the Poptropica tips you need!” You’ve probably noticed that the authors change in the header according to authors leaving or joining. The background is an old Monster Carnival sneak peek with some editing to make it original. If you have another background that may “flow” better, please send it to the PTFP email through the contact form at the bottom. Remember an email to send a message is NOT required. 🙂

Not only is it time for a new background, but it’s also time for the PTFP paper, Poptropica At A Glance! To send in your article (any article related to Poptropica), just send a message through the contact form! Along with a newspaper, there’s also the 10 TFP! I’ve been quite busy with my school Science Fair, but now it’s over, it’s time to get back to work. There may also be some other surprises this month (which means most likely)! Now, let’s see what we’ve got…10 TFP, newspaper, new header, new background, and some surprises. One more thing…time for Author Extraordinaire, Poptropica Explorer, and Ultimate Poptropican! I know, I know. There haven’t been many Snapshots. That’s why we’re combining January AND February together for the Poptropica Explorer (and there will be more snapshots to come).

The Carnival Close Up

mci 10Everyone has probably heard about Monster Carnival Island, the island that was meant to be, but never was. Well, everyone should also know that it’s coming out in February! For real! We just recently heard about this though, so even though the word spread quickly, we didn’t know much about the mysterious island. Until now that is! For the Monster Carnival Island Info Page is here! Click here to view it yourself!

Yes, yes,we are all very exited. Let’s just chill out and walk through the page, shall we?

In the dead of night, a caravan rumbles into town. The traveling carnival has returned! But this is no day at the park. Behind the lights and the laughter, the carnival harbors a dark secret. Buy a ticket if you dare, but beware — once you enter, you may never be able to escape the Monster Carnival!

Sounds pretty cool! I just can’t wait! Let’s go behind the tent for some cool pictures of the island in the making…

Well, as you can see in the fourth picture, there is a Tunnel of Love. So, when we were seeing all those love/horror sneak peeks, they were really for MCI! But those aren’t all the cool pictures that the info page has in store. Don’t forget about the awesome island extras! There is a wallpaper and poster waiting for you!

I personally love the design for the monster in the wallpaper. The dark colors and red, glowing eyes make it interestingly spooky. Oh! And notice the face on the Ferris Wheel. It is different in the wallpaper than in the post. It’s also different in the set of pictures above. Does the carnival go into “evil mode” at night, showing it’s true self? Hmm… Anyway, ready to go into the lion’s den? Well, let’s take a look at this bonus…

The town is safe, but now a prominent citizen is missing. Has the monster carnival claimed another victim, or is something else behind his disappearance?mci 8

Doesn’t seem much different than the regular quest to me. Notice how it says another. Looks like we’ll be looking for missing people in the regular quest and bonus quest. Is that it you ask? No way! For members, a special showing…

mci 9

Members get a Ringmaster Costume, the Raven Swarm Power, and Hypno-powder. Sounds cool! It looks like there will be a lot of raven related things in this island. Also, the Player Map is coming soon. Sadly, that’s basically it for the MCI Info Page.

Monster Carnival is Here! (Also a Lab)

SQEEEEEE! This is awesome! Yes, you read right! Monster Carnival, the island that never came out, is coming out!!! This beloved MCI mystery is now here! 😀

Awesome, right? “See? Dreams do come true. Then again, nightmares do, too…” So what do you think will come of this island? I think it’s going to be awesome!!! 🙂

Okay, okay, okay, time to calm myself. There is also a really cool Lab thing that the Creators are trying out. Sadly, it’s a members only thing.

If you’re a member, just log into Poptropica and on your home page, there is that slideshow thing in the bottom left hand corner. The lab is the second slide. And I know, you’re probably wondering what the heck this is. Well, it’s basically where you get to create your own little main street… kinda. Here is my example:

I know, I know, pretty lame. I was just testing it. 😛  I also made this one…

Just focus at what’s at the top. I tried to make an ordinary house kinda thing. There’s windows, a door, a failed chair and table, a bed, and even a pet house thing (which all my pets would not stay put in). 😉
