CDO 10… Part 2 – Contact Us!

NOTE: This post is sticky. Scroll down for more recent posts.

About a year ago, the ATP had a Count Down of 10 (CDO 10), where we released 10 huge prizes. Because of complications we never officially announced the last update (although most of you kinda figured out that it was an email for the blog). Well, after an entire year… here it is!!!

To contact myself (Spotted Dragon) and the ATP team email us at theatpteam@adventuretimepop.com! Or visit out Contact Us Page (under About) to fill out a contact form. Now I know what you might be thinking: Why is the address at “adventuretimepop.com” instead of something like “gmail.com?” Is SD finally getting her own URL??? Yeah, um… not right now, sorry. My father is messing around with some URL stuff, so hopefully we will get our own address soon. ;) (Just don’t get your hopes up, okay?)

We would love it if you sent in things for TNPT (more on that below), for our Fan Art Page, and island guides that we don’t already have up.

Also, we haven’t had a party in a while and that just won’t work. So, I’m gonna make a deal with you guys. Once we reach 50,000 hits, we will have a huge party on Xat/Poptropica! We are currently a bit over 46,000. Please spread the word so we can have a party sooner! :D

Okay, I want to start making more issues of The New Pop Times as well. We are going to have a new “Fan Mail” article, where viewers like you can send in your artwork, stories, costumes, and more! We have a new “Ask Us” article too, where you can ask us blog/Poptropica/Adventure Time related questions! If you want us to advertise something for you or you want to answer the quiz (now called “Trivia Time”) you can either email us or comment on the most recent TNPT post. ;)

Now for the juicy stuff…

MotM Island Released!

I’m happy to say that Mystery of the Map Island is released to member! I played it, and I really loved it. From the way our “footsteps” moved on the map, to the sheer cleverness of it all, I loved it.

One downside was that after I completed it, it wouldn’t show up. So now I have to restart the island and start all over. :(

Anyway, back to my game!

Mystery of the Map Island Confirmed!!

Hey guys!! Trusty Biker here! 

I’m happy to announce that Mystery of the Map Island is officially a thing!!  

 A couple of days ago, the Creators posted on the Creators blog the last couple of pages for Mystery of the Map Graphic Novel. Along with that, a paragraph slipped in there that the next island will in fact be Mystery of the Map!! 

A day later, the official tour page came up, along with a trailer and description! Sorry if the trailer doesn’t show up…. My phone doesn’t work the way it should sometimes….

A lost Viking settlement… an island unstuck in time… a magical map with power beyond understanding… and a devious plot that could unravel the very fabric of Poptropica! Join Mya, Oliver, and Jorge for a thrilling new adventure that lifts the veil from the greatest secret of all: the origin of Poptropica!

Members, stay tuned for MotM Island on May 21 (dates may change), while I heard that members have to wait a month after. 

Until next time!!

When you wish upon a Genie…

Hey guys! SR here.

sneak peek island 1

The plot for the third and final episode of Arabian Nights is finally out! The episode is called “Careful What You Wish For“. It looks so exciting! Do you want to read it with me?

The genie is out of the bottle, and now everyone wants a chance to make their wishes come true. But whether you’re a greedy merchant, a lovelorn palace guard, or a Sultan with a long-buried secret, heed this advice: be careful what you wish for!

Looks like we have to hide the genie from everyone and what is the Sultan hiding from us? According to the SWF files, the episode will feature a magic carpet! Very magical indeed. I’m so excited!

Would you wish upon a star genie?

What do you think of the third episode? Let us know in the comments!

Release Dates & Mysterious BTS Images

Hey guys! Lots of stuff on Twitter, as usual. I asked the Creators about release dates for islands and sadly, they had nothing specific to give me. However, we now have a general idea of when new islands are coming out! Knowing the Poptropica Creators though, the dates below could change.

release dates

Like I said, all we got is the general idea of release dates. At least it’s something, right? :P

Now, the islands in the tweet above aren’t the only ones in our future. The Creators want your opinion on some mysterious new designs for a mysterious new island. Remember, nothing is official yet, so the island might not even come out!

 

Of course their idea somehow relates to jail,judging by the police officers, inmates, and canines above. Hopefully we will have more info on the island soon!

Moving on to different islands, we also have two other behind the scenes images from Twitter.

The first image shows a, uh, man-baby of sorts… *cough* and the other shows on old fort on a tropical island. These pictures are most likely for Arabian Nights Island and Myserty of the Maps Island. Post any ideas you have about how the man-baby relates to the island below! :)

Last, but not least, we have PopStorm 24!

This one is basically the creativity of a Poptropica Creator. :P

That’s all for now!

Raptors and Reign of Omegons!

Hello Poptropicans! Raptor here, Slippery Raptor.

I’m the newest member here on the ATP and I’m really happy to be here! SD added me a here a week ago but I haven’t found the perfect time to post until now. You might know me as an author on the PHB and my own blog.

  Adventure Time is one of my favorite cartoons of all time. Not that it has humor or pbfinnfunny characters, but sometimes you can learn something about the adventures of Finn and Jake! Who ships PB and Finn? I kinda like them together more than Flame Princess and Finn (no offense :P).

About me, I’m fourteen. I like books and music. My favorite Adventure Time character is Marshall Lee and my favorite episode is It Came from the Nightosphere and it was just awesome.

Moving on to Poptropica news, the final and the last episode of PoptropiCon Ep. 3: Reign of Omegon is now available for everyone to play! I have already finished the island right after its release just today and you’re in for a treat! The final episode is just awesome and Omegon is considered to be one of the most evil villain of Poptropica. Click the image to play Poptropica!

popcon3

That’s all of the updates you need to know from me right now! I hope the ATP will have a great time having me here. Go ahead and defeat the hench-bots of Omegon! What do you think? Leave a comment!

MotM ISLAND!

Hi everyone- Trusty Biker here!

I want to kick off my entrance with an AWESOME theory about Mystery of the Map. Yes, it’s mine, but that doesn’t make it any less awesome :D .

First things first: what is Mystery of the Map?

Well, if you haven’t been reading this blog (or ANY blog in general), you’ve missed A LOT.

Mystery of the Map is this graphic novel Poptropica has been doing. Over on the Creators’ Blog, they’ve been posting daily pages of this graphic novel, illustrated by Kory Merritt (view the interview by clicking here!). You can view the graphic novel by clicking here!

But, there’s a whole lot more to MotM than what meets the eye (creepy music plays now). What do you think it could be? Why don’t we check the Daily Pop Sneak Peeks to find out?

CHECK OUT THIS GALLERY WITH 24 IMAGES!!!

24 Daily Pops. Sort of makes you lean the other way, right? To view my thoughts about each and every one of these images, check out my site, The Poptropican Newsroom!

But to keep it short, it looks like we have a common room called Viking’s Grotto, and what appears to be an item card. This item card may not be for this island (maybe Arabian Nights, maybe a whole new one!), but I included it anyway- just to be sure.

If you don’t care for pictures at all, and you still aren’t convinced; check this out:

If you type mysteryofthemapisland.com into your browser, it directs to Poptropica! I checked it out, and it seems to be owned by Poptropica; since February 25, 2015!

That is pretty neat; I can’t wait until the confirmation!


I’ll bet a lot of you have caught this already, but I just think it’s neat. To be honest, this was my first EVER theory, and I hadn’t even seen anyone else pick up on this when I wrote it, so it’s just very exciting for me. Also because I didn’t sleep all night and then woke up 3 hours ago plays a big part in this xD

P.S. Are you excited for the island? Tell me in the comments below!
