Hey guys! A lot of recent Tweets and posts to cover. First off, I want to emphasize this new video that has been added to the Creator’s “Inside Poptropica” YouTube playlist.
…Does this mean that Balloon Boy may be returning soon? Part of me is thrilled and part of me is sad that we may not be able to look in the sky and find him there any longer. Here is what has been said on the subject:
As you can see, Balloon Boy may soon become a Balloon Man…
In other news, Poptropica has still been buzzing on Tumblr lately! The awesomeness has even spread to classrooms.
Ugh, I hate it when I’m stuck on the loading page with a ton of vines across my screen. :P
Plus, some more concept art has been released! This time, it is for the recent “Monster High” ad.
As you may know, PoptropiCon Episode 2: Spoiler Alert has been released to members and Arabian Nights Episode 1: How Bazzar has been released to everyone. To celebrate, there is a new PoptropiCon themed costume in the Store, called Popzilla.
Yikes! Looks ferocious, doesn’t it? ;)
I also want to share an awesome site that the Creators found. It is called Ask the World’s Most Dangerous Losers. On the site, you can send in any question to be answered by the Poptropica Villains! Note that this is a fan site, therefore fans are answering the questions, not the Poptropcia team. Still, it’s pretty cool!
Yep, I definitely ship Dr. Hare and Binary Bard now. Let’s call them… Robo-Rabbit. XD
Anyway… The Best of the Land: Dream Houses have been announced!
“From Cool Sponge, here’s a Victorian-style mansion that looks like an absolutely gorgeous place to live, provided the Bates Motel is not located just down the hill.”
“From the one and only Friendly Fish, an abode that lives up to her name.”
“From Golden Lightning, a period piece that wouldn’t look out of place on Mythology Island.”
“From Golden Lobster, a dream home of biblical proportions — inside the belly of a whale!”
“From Hyper Fire, the great thing about a houseboat is that if you don’t like your neighbors, you can just pack up and leave!”
“From Mad Comet, a gorgeous fusion of old and new, built into a hillside. Does the League of Shadows have meetings here?”
“From Red Sun, a nicely organized, wonderfully appointed home. It’s move-in ready!”
“From Small Tiger, this one has it all: a lovely garden, comfortable accommodations, and a storeroom that will guarantee you outlast the apocalypse.”
“From Striped Fox, this home is distinguished by a massive telescope in the observatory, which fortunately is pointed away from the bathrooms.”
“From Zany Crown, this is a treehouse that stays true to its roots. Just beautiful.”
Look at that! The PHB’s own Slanted Fish is among the best! Click here for an in depth tour of her creation. Nice work Fishy!
Sadly, we are a little late on posting this, so voting for the best of the best is over. The winner is… Zany Crown! Congrats! :D
The Best of the Land: Villages has also been announced! Thankfully, we are on time for this one.
“From Cool Sponge, an old-fashioned village that looks like the perfect place to hold the inaugural constitutional convention. (Cool Sponge also made it into Monday’s Dream Homes!)”
“From Creepy Goose, how clever is this? She zoomed way out for a blimp’s-eye view of her village.”
“From Friendly Heart, imagine waking up to that giant shrubbery every morning. It wouldn’t be terrifying at all.”
“From Ice Age, an intricate desert setting. Unfortunately, Ice Age wasn’t a registered user so we can’t share their avatar with you! Always a good idea to save your game.”
“From Mad Comet, here’s a medieval village that seems to be struggling with a dragon problem. (Mad Comet, too, was featured on Monday!)”
“From Neat Tiger, we can see why they needed to build this village above the flood plain. Looks like they’ve got everything up there!”
“From Popular Shadow, it’s another dragon! Let’s hope this one is a protector. If not, we know exactly what to do (Red Dragon Island reference).”
“From Serious Bird, you don’t have to go far for a bite to eat in this town. Does the building on the right shake in an earthquake?”
“From Silver Lightning, another underwater-themed world! We’ll take the raft, thank you very much.”
“From White Flyer, it looks like a Poptropica Main Street! Even without the blimp it’s a dead ringer. Well done.”
Click here to go vote for your favorite! The poll should be to the right of the page. The next theme in the contest is an obstacle course, so good luck everyone!
Once more thing! Survival Episode 5, along with free Halloween costumes, are now available in the Poptropica app.
