MotM, BTS Video, a Sad Princess, & More

Hey guys! We are a bit behind, but I will try my best to share major updates.

There have been a ton of new Mystery of the Map pages, so be sure to check out the Poptropica Creators’ Blog to catch up on the story. There have been 31 pages already!

The Creators’ Inside Poptropica Playlist has also been updated. The new videos include remarkable realm tours, a zombie dance, and more.

Moving on, PopStorm 16 and 17 have been released.

16 is a Poptropican styled bug battle and 17 shows some girls with curls.

Hmm… what else is there…? Oh yes! If you haven’t heard of this dressgate thing, you probably have disconnected from the world for a while. Thankfully the hype of this black and blue/white and gold dress has gone down. If you went onto Poptropica during all the chaos, you may have got a few cool costumes.

Of course the dress isn’t the only thing Poptropicans are fangirling over. The Creators recently released a few sneak peeks for the last Arabian Knights episode… specifically images of a very sad looking princess.

Many theories have already been popping up. So what do you think the island’s future will hold?

Hopefully these updates have officially caught everyone up! 🙂

Dream Island Recap

Sorry that we didn’t post too much about the winners of the Create Your Dream Island contest (none of us were crying over a bowls of ice cream), but don’t fret! A recap is here now.

The big winner, creator of a soon to come islands, was… Arabian Nights Island, submitted by Sarah S. from South Carolina!

The pitch: On Arabian Nights Island, Poptropicans go on a quest across the desert to rescue a sultan’s genie from the Forty Thieves.

Why we liked it: Everyone who saw Sarah’s entry — from our friends at Penguin, to the creative team at Poptropica led by Jeff Kinney — said the same thing. Between the characters, the setting, the storyline, and the gameplay, Sarah’s entry came to us sounding exactly like an Island we’d put together. It’s a classic tale, inspired by one of the oldest storytelling traditions in the world, and yet one we’d never thought about doing before.

It didn’t sound too bad to me, but definitely not a top favorite either. Still, great job Sarah! Read more about the island here.
