Arabian Nights 3: Out now for Everyone!

Yep, the title says it all… Arabian Nights Episode 3: Careful What You Wish For is now available for everyone to play!

Be sure to check out the World Champion Map to see who has already finished the quest.

I won’t spoil anything yet, but I have to say that this island has some awesome twists and turns!

Good luck for those of you getting ready to complete the adventure! 😀

Hall of Fame Winner Mighty Burger, Nabooti Demo, Realms Sharing, & More

LOTS to talk about today guys! Let’s start off with the most recent Hall of Fame Winner… Mighty Burger!

mighty burger

Mighty Burger is from Canada and has completed 53 islands since the contest started. Now that’s impressive! 😀

He can now be found on Reality TV Island.

Meanwhile, some sketchy stuff is happening on Nabooti Island.

nabooti demo

If you’re a non-member and you go to Nabooti Island, you will come across a “play the demo” label. After playing a while, you won’t be able to finish and will instead face the “end of the demo” page.

Could this mean that Nabooti will be the next SUI? I can’t seem to think of any other explanation.

In other news, we will soon be able to share realms!

We will also soon be able to play Arabian Nights Episode 3! Most likely in July, to be specific.

Careful What You Wish For
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!

Dun, dun, duhhhh!!! Share you predictions for the island 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? 😛

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. 😛

That’s all for now!

The first image shows a bookshelf for the upcoming Arabian Nights episode and the second is an early piece of concept art for Galactic Hot Dogs. The last three images are of a Poptropica Creator’s office. So. Many. Collectibles… 😀

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. 😛

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. 😛

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!

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. 😛

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! 😛

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.

Realm Creations, Island Sneak Peeks, & More

The amount of updates dude… I just can’t… *Ahem* Okay! We can do this!

First up, some amazing Poptropica Realms creations that the Poptropica Creators thought were worth sharing. 🙂

Pretty cool, huh? Of course there are a lot more amazing creations out there too!

Next up, there have been a lot of recent island sneak peeks.

The first and second image is for Arabian Nights. The third, fifth and sixth are for PoptropiCon. The fourth is just an early sketch for Galactic Hot Dogs. Okay, now I just need a moment to freak out about the awesomeness of the last image (for Omegon). :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

*cough* Moving on… there are also a couple sneak peeks for Poptropica Comics.

Dun-Dun-Duh!!! 😛

Lastly, another Popstorm (12)!

That’s all for this update! See ya guys next time! 🙂

Poptropica Cartoon? Paper Craft, GHDI, & More

Sorry for the, like, week of no posting guys. Getting back into my school routine was tough.

Anyway, you’ve probably already heard about this, but will Poptropica be releasing a cartoon? This was posted on Twitter a while ago:

twitter 1

All that was said was that the image shows a “Poptropica script read.” Most people are thinking a Poptropica cartoon is in our future. However, people have also suggested that it may be a YouTube series, audio book, or narration for SUIs. What do you think about all this speculation? Comment your opinions below!

In other news, we have many behind the scenes images. First up, an early sketch for Poptropica Comics.

twitter 2

All that we know is that it is a part of something coming February-ish. Next up, a Galactic Hot Dogs ad can now be found.

twitter 3

Go travel in the neon wiener! 😛

Okay, now remember the past paper crafts that the Creators have released? We even have one for the ATP! Anyway, he Creators have now released another paper craft! This one is Svaldalfari, the hammer from Poptropica Land.

twitter 4

You can click here to download it now, or go to the Poptropica Land Tour Page.

Last but not least, has your school banned Poptropica from there computers? I know my school did. 😦

But worry no more! The Creators released this three part image for a Poptropican in need that may solve this problem.

See??? Poptropica is fun and educational! Show those pictures to someone in charge at your school and see if it helps. 🙂

Arabian Nights: Lair of Thieves is now out for all and PoptropiCon: Spoiler Alert is now on android. Have fun!

Poptropica Realms & Arabian 1 for app!

Hello poptropicans! To start off 2015, the Creators have officially announced (though SD had her suspicions earlier) that the next update of Poptropica Land is coming soon (early 2015): Poptropica Realms! There is a quick 15 second trailer found on the updated info page. Looking more into the page, it looks like this upcoming feature will be for everyone, but members have access to more realms, they can share their realms with the Creators, and get special props and decorations.

In other news, the Creators also released the episode of Arabian Nights: How Bazaar to iOS devices! (click image for Creator’s post)

GHD Trailer & More!

Hey guys, we have a lot of updates in store. Let’s start out with the big one: Galactic Hot Dog Island. The trailer is now out, along with the Tour Page.

Looks pretty cool! 😀

From the hit graphic novel comes the zaniest Poptropica adventure yet. Hop aboard the Neon Wiener for an intergalactic voyage with Cosmoe, Humphree, and Princess Dagger!

Start your adventure now: read Galactic Hot Dogs season one on Funbrain!

The Tour Page oddly indicates that this island will not have episodes. At least, the episodes aren’t included on the page. On that note, episodes will soon be no longer:

Well, I personally didn’t like the episodes, so I’m perfectly fine with this. What about you guys?

Anyway, back to GHD Island. Two new store items will soon be out. The FRED Follower is free and the Galactic Space Suit is only for members.

 

Along with the GHD items, a new Arabian Nights item is now out for members! It is for members only and entitled Plundered Armor.

Remember that members can play Arabian Nights: Lair of Thieves tomorrow!

Other than that, the Creators have released another behind the scenes image.

Also, Jeff Kinney was on the Today show! Be sure to check it out! Mainly Diary of a Wimpy Kid related stuff. 😛

Well, that’s it for now! Stay popping! 😉
