Beyond the Forest – Episode 2

Good morning, everyone! Here is the second episode of my continuing fan-fiction of Poptropica, starring characters from different islands (each episode will have at least one “link” to another island, so try to figure them out as the episodes are released!). If you haven’t already, be sure to read episode 1 before this one. Also, check out other strange stories here!

_________________________________________________________________________________________________

The bear groaned before falling to the ground. The man chuckled to himself, the end of his gun still smoking. With all of his energy, he dumped the creature onto his green camo helicopter. Turning the key, the engine rumbled, and the man headed back to his home.

**************

Entering the keycode, the man stepped back into the mansion. The aroma of beef stew filled the air.

“Welcome back, Myron.” A woman’s voice said. She was facing away from him, preparing a meal. She turned around and smiled at him, stained cleaver in hand. Her hair and face were full with grease and oil.

“Thank you, Edith.” he replied. “Where’s the little bugger?”

“I think I saw him in the trophy room again.” Edith winked.

**************

Myron heard a little voice yell, “Blam!” before he opened the room. There his son was, plastic gun in hand, pretending to hunt down an elephant. Myron chuckled. He was so proud of his boy. When he adopted him 3 years ago, just at the age of 5, he loved caring for him. He tapped his son’s shoulder.

“I’ve got a surprise for ya, Jon.”

**************

Max needed to find his plane. He knew it was around the forest somewhere. Thinking back to where he was when the crash happened, he remembered that old order he had of all those lemons. Something about making smoothies for a town called Easton, or something like that. Then, the call was suddenly canceled. Max still didn’t know why. But, that didn’t matter now. What mattered is that he still had lemons, at least some food for him to eat. He just needed to find them.

**************

Myron opened the hatch, and the bear’s body came tumbling out. Jon’s eyes light up.

“A bear!” he exclaimed. “I know just where to put it.”

After it was taxidermied, Jon and Myron dragged the new addition to the front hall.

“You’ve finally caught the most dangerous creature, dad!” Jon said.

“Not quite yet, boy. There’s still… something else… I need to hunt.”

Jon gleamed. “I know you’ll be able to catch it.”

Myron smiled grimly. “Anything for you, son.”

Survival Ep. 5 (Escape) out now for Members!

survival 2

Hey, this is just a quick post to let you guys know that Survival episode 5 (Escape), the last episode of Survival, is out now for members! There was also a rumor that PoptropiCon was coming out for nonmembers, but that rumor was sadly false.

Anyway, if you’re having trouble with the island, take a look at Captain Crawfish’s own, official, walk-through (hopefully we will have a guide up soon).

Plus, be sure to check out the Tour Page for the island’s info and extras.

I personally enjoyed Survival’s ending. It was unique, fun, and filled with twists. I don’t want to spoil anything for you guys, so we’ll end it here.

Happy hunting running!

What Happens on Thursday…

Some of y’all reading this already know what goes on Thursday. Why is it such a special day, you ask? 😛 Episode 3 of Survival Island is coming out on Thursday! 😀 YAY! Maybe Episode 2 of Survival might come out to everyone too. I don’t know just a prediction. In episode 3, you find an abandoned radio station, and you have to assemble a radio and send a transmission for your best hope of rescue! Sounds interesting. 🙂

Mission Atlantis & iPads for all!

The next island in Poptropica will be… Mission Atlantis!

There is no Info Page up yet, so we can’t say much about what’s going to happen, what’s special about it, etc. However, from it’s title and video, it looks like we’ll be discovering Atlantis! It also looks like we’re going to crash at the bottom of the ocean… XD

I have to say I’m not sure how I feel about the episodes for the islands. Survival (Episode 1) was okay, but there wasn’t much to it and Episode 2 is coming out later than I expected. What do you guys think?

Anyway, we finally concluded the rumors about there being an iPad handheld item.

If you find this video ad, watch it and you’ll receive the iPad handheld item! Sadly the ad seems to be hard to find for a lot of people. I found it on Time Tangled Island, so you could try looking there.

When you get the item, you can also press space bar to throw out a small object with the Disney Infinity logo on it. After it lands, there is white smoke and a Disney character figurine appears. Strange… It seems like Poptropica is advertising new Disney Infinity characters?

Also, on the Survival Island Info Page, it looks like the Poptropica app is coming out for Android devices really soon! 😀

Coming Soon: Survival Island

Hey guys! Most of you have heard already that the next Poptropica island is… Survival! However, the Creators are trying something new out for this new adventure.

See, we know you were getting tired of waiting months for each new Island. And we were getting tired of making you wait months for each new Island. That’s why Survival will be our first episodic Island. Instead of waiting forever for it to come out all at once, you’ll be able to play each chapter as it becomes available.

In other words: more new Poptropica adventures, more often!

Episodes, huh? I’m not sure if that will work out, but it’s worth a shot!

The first episode is called “Crash Landing.” It will be available for members on March 20. It’s synopsis is that “Night has fallen and the temperature is dropping. Alone in the forests of the Yukon, you must find a way to build a fire — but time is running out.”

Episode two is called “Hook, Line and Sinker.” It’s about how “With no help in sight, your hunger threatens to overtake you. Can you catch your next meal under the ice — or will you become fish food?”

So, you remember all those winter forest scenes in recent Daily Pops? Well they’re for Survival Island!

Right now, we know that two of the member’s only items are Wind Power and Ghillie Suit. If you were quick, you might’ve seen them in the Poptropica Store, but they aren’t there anymore (for now). Thank the PTFP for the images. 😉

members only item 1 members only item 2

Then, there is the poster and wallpaper for the island (island extras). They could be for the whole island, but considering they both say “Crash Landing” we might get a wallpaper and post for each individual episode!

There isn’t much known about the island, so we’ll just have to wait and see! Click here to visit the island info page.
