Creatures, Worlds, Comics, & Holidays!

Hey Poptropicans! Quick update with some recent tweets.

First off, the Creators released another piece of Monster Carnival concept art.

I think my favorite is the bottom left. 😛

The Creators also gave us a sneak peek of an upcoming Land feature. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but we will create… A WHOLE NEW WORLD!!! XD

I don’t know about you guys, but this looks amazing to me. Anyone getting a “Spore” vibe? Anyway, this is apparently a “prototype of player’s world management screen for Poptropica Land.” 😀

In other news, we have a Poptropica Comic sneak peek to share!

Hehehe… XD

Before I go… Happy Veterans Day! You may not celebrate the occasion, but it’s still good to just say thank you for those who have protected you. On that note, Poptropica just can’t wait for Thanksgiving!

Hmm… Now I’m craving turkey and corn on the cob… 😛

Ringmaster Raven’s Rampage

Hey guys! We all know that MCI is almost upon us. It is coming sometime in February, so it should be really soon! Heck, HP thinks it might even come out today because of this Creator’s Post:

On the run

Sometimes we talk to people who imagine it must be great fun to work at Poptropica. Well, they’re right, but there is a downside: like having to spend hours getting chased around a carnival by creepy monsters! And you thought gym class was stressful.

You, too, will be able to face the Monster Carnival before you know it. We’ll have more Monster Carnival news to announce very soon!

I actually think that would be really fun! What about you? 😛

Put Your Hands Together for the Ringmaster!

Yep! The Ringmaster has finally appeared! Well, his costume has anyway. If you’re a member you can get it now in the Poptropica Store for free!

Keep on the lookout for the Raven Swarm and Hypno-Power, soon to come! 😉

However, the Ringmaster isn’t the only one in the spotlight today. Give it up to… Perfect Sky! The Creators have liked her Poptropica Labs video so much that they had to share it with everyone.

Pretty cool, huh?

The Truth.

Hi Gs,

The Creators recently posted a post — one we’ve been waiting for for years. It’s all about Monster Carnival, and why they deleted it. You heard right.

It turns out the Poptropica Creators just weren’t ready to make the island. After just releasing Shark Tooth and Early Poptropica, I can see how something named “Monster Carnival” may seem pretty intimidating. But their ready for it now! Just after making the decision of sound updated islands, I think this was a wise decision. But will it be a fail? Only time will tell.

You can read the full post here. Enjoy. 🙂

Enjoy the Show!

*voice booms from speakers* Come one, come all to see the great ATP! I, Spotted Dragon, will takes you to place that will make you become a true adventurer…

*curtains open*

Vuala! As you can see the ATP had changed to it’s more… monstrous side. This new look includes a great Monster Carnival themed header, along with a creepy MCI background:

So, do you like it? 🙂

Monsters in Detail

mci 10Everyone has probably heard about Monster Carnival Island, the island that was meant to be, but never was. Well, everyone should also know that it’s coming out in February! For real! We just recently heard about this though, so even though the word spread quickly, we didn’t know much about the mysterious island. Until now that is! For the Monster Carnival Island Info Page is here! Click here to view it yourself!

Yes, yes,we are all very exited. Let’s just chill out and walk through the page, shall we?

In the dead of night, a caravan rumbles into town. The traveling carnival has returned! But this is no day at the park. Behind the lights and the laughter, the carnival harbors a dark secret. Buy a ticket if you dare, but beware — once you enter, you may never be able to escape the Monster Carnival!

Sounds pretty cool! I just can’t wait! Let’s go behind the tent for some cool pictures of the island in the making…

Well, as you can see in the fourth picture, there is a Tunnel of Love. So, when we were seeing all those love/horror sneak peeks, they were really for MCI! But those aren’t all the cool pictures that the info page has in store. Don’t forget about the awesome island extras! There is a wallpaper and poster waiting for you!

I personally love the design for the monster in the wallpaper. The dark colors and red, glowing eyes make it interestingly spooky. Oh! And notice the face on the Ferris Wheel. It is different in the wallpaper than in the post. It’s also different in the set of pictures above. Does the carnival go into “evil mode” at night, showing it’s true self? Hmm… Anyway, ready to go into the lion’s den? Well, let’s take a look at this bonus…

The town is safe, but now a prominent citizen is missing. Has the monster carnival claimed another victim, or is something else behind his disappearance?mci 8

Doesn’t seem much different than the regular quest to me. Notice how it says another. Looks like we’ll be looking for missing people in the regular quest and bonus quest. Is that it you ask? No way! For members, a special showing…

Members get a Ringmaster Costume, the Raven Swarm Power, and Hypno-powder. Sounds cool! It looks like there will be a lot of raven related things in this island. Also, the Player Map is coming soon. Sadly, that’s basically it for the MCI Info Page.

P.S. The ATP has gotten up to 50 followers! You guys rock! 😀

The Chronicles of SF – Chapter 1 Part 2

ATP The Chronicles of Sleepy Feather

Hey everyone! Do you remember the story our old author, Sleepy Feather, started to make a while ago. Well, even though SF is no longer an author, she has decided to continue her amazing story! Yay! 😀

I would definitely recommend reading the prologue and part 1 of chapter 1 (again) before reading this. You can find them both here. It may be short, but I think it’s still really awesome. Okay, without further adieu, here is Chapter 1 – Part 2 of The Chronicles of Sleepy Feather!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Sleepy tore down the streets, almost knocking down Mrs. Sinker, who was one of the most snobbish and arrogant residents of Cryptids Island, and ran down to the beach. (She didn’t think she’d mind if she knocked her down, personally, or her ugly dog Poochie.)

When Sleepy reached the beach, she spotted her friend standing on the cliff. Breathless, she passed Spots her phone. “This is for you, Spots,” she said, catching her breath.

“Thanks,” said Spots.

“You know, you don’t have to do this. We can go together. Maybe we’ll find out what happened to Wolfy?” suggested Sleepy bluntly, forgetting that her friend wouldn’t take too kindly if she knew that Sleepy had been reading her texts.

Spots rolled her eyes. “You read my texts, didn’t you? Man, Sleepy, that is so inconsiderate of you!” She didn’t smile. “Anyway, that isn’t going to work. Father – I mean, sir – said just me, no help.”

Sleepy sighed, “I won’t let you do this, Spots. I have a helicopter, for goodness’s sake! It would be inconsiderate not to help you!”

Spots thought about it for a second. “Okay. But keep hidden, ‘kay?”

And with that, they headed down to Sleepy’s helipad.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

SF, once again an amazing tale. I’m sure we all can’t wait for Chapter 2! 😉

Monster Carnival Coming in Febuary!!! (Plus a Lab)

SQEEEEEE! This is awesome! Yes, you read right! Monster Carnival, the island that never came out, is coming out!!! This beloved MCI mystery is now here! 😀

Awesome, right? “See? Dreams do come true. Then again, nightmares do, too…” So what do you think will come of this island? I think it’s going to be awesome!!! 🙂

Okay, okay, okay, time to calm myself. There is also a really cool Lab thing that the Creators are trying out. Sadly, it’s a members only thing.

If you’re a member, just log into Poptropica and on your home page, there is that slideshow thing in the bottom left hand corner. The lab is the second slide. And I know, you’re probably wondering what the heck this is. Well, it’s basically where you get to create your own little main street… kinda. Here is my example:

I know, I know, pretty lame. I was just testing it. 😛 I also made this one…

pict(1)

Just focus at what’s at the top. I tried to make an ordinary house kinda thing. There’s windows, a door, a failed chair and table, a bed, and even a pet house thing (which all my pets would not stay put in). 😉
