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…

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!

Who IS This?

Hi everyone!

My name is Trusty Biker. I’m the newest author here on Adventure Time Pop.

Judging by my name, I’m sure you can tell that I’m here to post about Poptropica. Although it would be nice to post about Adventure Time, my parents won’t let me watch it :(

Anyway, here’s a little info about me:

I’m an 11 year old girl with a lot of creativity. I write (A LOT!), draw, dance, and sing. I’m an experienced Poptropica player; I’ve been playing for about 4 years, and I’ve completed about 45 islands. I have two blogs, The Poptropican Newsroom and Poptropica Inside and Out. I also work on Poptropica Tips for Poptropicans and  Poptropica Voice. I’m also part of the Black Flags Tribe.

I’m very excited to be on here, and work with you (authors) or entertain you (viewers)!

P.S. To friend me on Poptropica, my username is ihg0119

MotM Interview, PopStorms, FunBrain Ads, & More

Hello my fellow Poptropicans! No, the blog isn’t dead! I know we haven’t been the most active lately, but I’m going to try my best to fix that. Of course that means I need a lot of help from my authors. More info on activity to come. ;)

Thankfully, we haven’t missed too much. However, a ton of stuff is changing over at the Poptropica Help Blog, along with its name. They are joining the Poptropica Wiki among other things, to expand the Poptropica community. To be honest, I’m a little overwhelmed by it all. However, I encourage you to go check things out.

Anyway, let’s start off with a recent interview with the illustrator for the Myserty of the Map series, Kory Merritt. Note that Capatin Crawfish had the interview, not us. :P

Captain Crawfish: How did you get involved in illustrating Mystery of the Map? 

Kory Merritt: The Poptropica Creators originally hired me to illustrate the Poptropica comic strip. After a little while they asked me to try some graphic novel page samples, which led to me working on “Mystery of the Map” with author Max “Galactic Hot Dogs” Brallier.

CC: What are the challenges of adapting Poptropica’s art style from an online game to a graphic novel? What are the joys? 

KM: Poptropica has a very distinct style. I’m actually an art teacher by day and didn’t have much freelance experience, so working for Poptropica was the first time I had to draw someone else’s characters. It took a little while to get the hang of it – the Poptropica design might seem simple at times, but there are little details that can make or break the characters. Fortunately, the Poptropica Creators were very patient and helped guide me along. I’m pretty happy with the results, for I think the illustrations resemble the standard Poptropican model, but at the same time have a hand-drawn, comic-type feel.

CC: What’s your process for illustrating the book?

KM: I’m old-fashioned enough to still use pen and paper for the most part, but for “Mystery of the Map” I also used digital color and made corrections in Photoshop.

CC: Who’s your favorite MotM character to draw?

KM: The Vikings! It’s fun to draw angry faces.

CC: What other projects have you worked on that Poptropicans might like to know about?

KM: I draw some of my own stories, mostly just for fun. One of them is on FunBrain, and some are on GoComics.com. It seems I will also have my own illustrated book coming out later this year, published by Andrews McMeel.

Pretty cool! While on the subject of Mystery of the Map, an island for the comic series will be coming out soon!

We have proven this by multiple Daily Pops suggesting the island, along with the fact that if you search for the URL mysteryofthemapisland.com, you will be redirected to Poptropica.com.

While still talking about island sneak peeks, we have yet another image for Arabian Nights, Episode 3.

Moving on, Popstorms 20 and 21 are here! 20 is entitled Practicing Powerful Poses and 21 is entitled Frantic Freckles.

Cute, as always. :P

Moving on yet again, there is a new ad that has been popping up on FunBrain, featuring Poptropica. Of course FunBrain has always advertised for Poptropica (and vise versa), but this one is new.

 

Click here to view where the ad has been seen. You will have to refresh the page to see the 3 different versions. As you can see in the images above, the ad features some well known Poptropicans from the blogging community! We don’t know everyone shown, but we do know a lot of them. From left to right, Super Thunder, HPuterpop, Spotted Dragon (me), Green Boa, Coskit, Slanted Fish, Shaggy Tornado, Rainbow Dash/ElmoPwns, (IDK), MT/Happy Wolf, (IDK), and (IDK).

Moving on yet again… again… (I’m not great at transitions), the Creators released a fun Bingo Card that has characters from PoptropiCon Episode 3 on it.

Of course, the center title is a free space and you need to complete a row/column/diagonal to win. Good luck! :)

That’s all for now!

April Fools: 2015

Hey guys! If you didn’t notice, the ATP has been in “unavailable” mode for a while. It wasn’t much, but we still wanted to mess with your brain. If you visited the ATP any time around April 1st, you would have been brought to an unavailable page with unavailable images.

Well, all of that it cleared up now! I know, I know, it wasn’t the best “prank” but I think everyone was just having too much fun the the PHB’s April Fools Day Prank! < Go to their post for more info on the fun.

Like always, the Poptropica Creators got in on the fun too!

Poptropica: The Text Adventure!

This is the Poptropica experience boiled down to its essence. We’ve got the convoluted plot lines and three-part dialogue trees you love, without all of that annoying art, music, and animation. Just check out these world-exclusive screenshots!

Poptropica: The Text Adventure includes classic Island setups, with the kinds of deep characterizations and rich storytelling premises that you’ve come to expect.

Brain-bending puzzles? We’ve got ’em!

We couldn’t call it Poptropica without some truly epic boss fights.

And, of course, we haven’t forgotten about ads!

Available on both 3½” and 5¼” floppy disc, Poptropica: The Text Adventure is compatible with all leading desktop computer platforms, including Commodore 64, TRS-80, and Apple IIe. Coming soon!

Did you fall for their Poptropica Text Adventure?

PopStorm 18/19, Arabian Princess, Popping on Pinterest, & More

Hey guys! Just a few quick Poptropica announcements. First up, PopStorm 18 and 19.

These two show some Poptropicans with some classy glasses and two cute beaver brothers. :P

The Creators also released, yet another, awesome sneak peek of Arabian Nights Island.

arab 1

It shows a Princess, along with her father, whom we’ve seen in multiple other sneak peeks. I encourage you to take a look at Brave Tomato’s theory for this island (which specifically focuses on the Princess), especially since the Creators have said that it is spot on.

While on the subject of new islands, I also encourage you to take a look at the PHB’s BTS Overview & Theory of PoptropiCon Episode 3, which I helped out a lot on. The episode is currently scheduled to come out for members on March 26 (for non-members on April 16). Keep in mind that these dates may change.

Anyway, I also want to mention that Poptropica is now popping on Pinterest!

pop pin

They/Master Mime/Jon Pitcher mainly just repost Poptropica related stuff. Check it out! :P

While on the subject of social media sites, the Poptropica Help Blog has kicked off the Poptropica Help Wiki!

pop wiki

Anyone is able to edit pages on the Wiki, so be sure to help out! At the moment, the site is trying to set up character pages. :)

That’s all for now! (Authors, please be sure to help keep the ATP up to date by posting more frequently!)

~SD

P.S. I am now on DeviantArt! Some of my art will be Poptropica/Adventure Time related, so check it out if you’d like.
