Special Set of 7

Okay… so I got some bad news guys. Remember the whole Nabooti demo thing and how Nabooti Island is only for members now? Well, more islands have joined the members only club.

membership islands

There may be over 40 islands, but now 7 of those islands are exclusive for members. Those islands include:

Non-members can still play a demo of each island, but nothing beyond that.

Yes, what we have feared is true. I just hope Poptropica won’t become completely membership oriented. 😦

BTS Images & Info

Hey guys! This post is gonna be full of behind the scenes (BTS) images, info, etc. However, these aren’t really spoilers. Click to enlarge any images.

First off, don’t forget that Arabian Nights Island is coming out this Thrusday! For those of you who just can’t wait, the Poptropica Creators recently tweeted a picture of their Arabian Nights logo drafts.

I probably like the final logo the best, but the others seem pretty cool too. The Creators also shared some drafts of the actual island.

 

That’s it for Arabian Nights, but we do have another set of logo drafts! This time, for Mission Atlantis Island.

bts island 3

Some of those fonts are really cool. XD Anyway, those were all the logo drafts we found, but we do have other drafts. What would you say about island drafts? Well, apparently Water Thrill Island was going to come out, but it eventually got rejected.

Of course, many Poptropicans were wondering why this awesome idea was trashed and the Creators responded by saying…

Let’s change our wording from “rejected” to “rejected for now.” Got hundreds of ideas. Tough to choose. A juggling act.

Therefore, this island might have a chance. 😉 While on the topic of unreleased islands, we should expect another Wimpy Kid Island and/or a Galactic Hot Dog Island (after PoptropiCon and Arabian Nights of course)!

I’m up for another Wimpy Kid. What about you guys?

bts island 8

Anyway, in conclusion to the 50th anniversary of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, the Creators have made their final post on the Roald Dahl website. Find the first post here, the second post here, and the third/final post here.

That’s all for now, hopefully we will have more BTS stuff up soon. 😛

ancharacterWell, the big announcement has arrived (no, not relating to the CDO Part 2)! Arabian Nights Island is almost upon us, specifically episode 1 (How Bazaar).

After the forty thieves ransack his city, a desperate sultan has one request: find the thieves’ lair, and bring back his most cherished possession!

Click here to go to the Island Tour Page and get your own wallpaper, poster, and other Arabian Nights sneak peeks! 🙂

In other news, be sure to check out the Creators’ second post on Roald Dahl’s website, in honor of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’s 50th anniversary. It goes into a lot of the behind the scenes info of the island and more. If you haven’t read their first post, be sure to check that out as well.

Plus, the Creators have shared two more amazing Land creations.

Wow! Nice work guys! 😀

Can’t get enough of Poptropica? Want to spread your love through something like… art… but need tips? Well this cool video, straight from Poptropica’s leading artists, should help you out!

Sorry guys, but that’s all we have for now. Stay poppin’! 😛

A ton of stuff has been going on in Poptropica today.

First of all, PoptropiCon Ep. 1 (Line Forms Here) is now out for members!

I have already completed the island (sadly I didn’t rank that high) and I have to say that I loved it. There are so many cool costumes to customize, I got caught up in my outfit and got distracted from the quest. Even so, the story line was cool while still being pretty basic. The thing I think I loved most about PoptropiCon was that there were random Poptropicans (including the ones you can talk to) that walked around. This made it feel more a whole lot more like real life (and they were customizable).

Plus, the Creators’ first ever video walk-through (for PoptropiCon: Line Forms Here) was released! It was even narrated by Captain Crawfish himself and is totally free! However, we will hopefully have a guide of our own soon. Note that the video contains spoilers.

What did you think of the island?

Second of all, Mission Atlantis (Ep. 1-3) is now out for everyone!

Nothing much to say about it; I personally found the ending a bit abrupt. I guess I was hoping to actually meet the “aliens” and just discover more in general. What did you think of the island?
