Hey everyone! I just wanted to quickly inform you that Mission Atlantis Island is out for members! Plus, the PHB’s walkthrough is now up! No demo for non-members though. :(

But there is some good news for non-members! Survival Island Part 1: Crash Landing is out for all! If you need help on the island, feel free to use the PHB’s guide! Hope it helps! :D

So, non-members, how is your fire going? And members, what have you found under the sea? Take the poll below, and tell us what you think of these islands in the comments or on the PHC! :)

By the way, check out the resemblances between the construction workers on Super Villain Island and the ship crew on Mission Atlantis! (Thanks for the pic, Brave Tomato!)

EDIT: Believe it or not, the infamous Dr. Hare finished 1st in the race completing for Mission Atlantis: Episode 1! I don’t know if it’s a hoax or not, but I’m pretty impressed either way!

Items gone? Is it a myth?

Hey everyone! I think I found the 2nd costume for Mythology: Part 2! Here’s my reasoning behind it: Well, you know in my 2 Mythology posts ago where it had 2 different costumes (Icarus and Cyclops) on the info page and store.

Mythology2 Mythology1

Well, now on the info page for Mythology Island (guide here) they only have a girls and boys costume for the Cyclops now. Here’s a a pic:

Mythology5

The creators even changed the text under it to “Members get an additional Mythology Cyclops Costume”. Where before it was “Members get two additional Mythology Costumes”

Mythology6

The Icarus Costume for Mythology Island is still in the store though! I have a hunch it will go away very soon after this post! So go get it quick before it disappears for a couple of weeks! Now there’s my reasoning how the Icarus costume will be for Episode 2!

The new and improved Mythology Island is coming soon & Mission Atlantis medallion is up!

Hey everyone! BT’s post months ago about the Creators announcing the Mythology SUI, plus the items that I found in the Store yesterday, does hint at something: the new and improved Mythology Island SUI (guide here) must be almost ready! They’ve even updated the official island tour page:

Mythology3

I noticed something strange on the map… the new Mythology Island will have episodes like the newer islands! Are all the islands now going to be made into episodes? xD They haven’t done that for 24 Carrot and Time Tangled, though, and those were the first two classic-islands-turned-SUIs.

Mythology4

Plus, the Mythology Island Tour page now includes a new desktop wallpaper and printable poster!

In other news, the medallion for Mission Atlantis: Episode 1 is now up and viewable from the Friends tab! The island will be coming out tomorrow for members, so stay tuned to the PHB for the guide. :)

New Mythology members-only costumes in the Store!

Hey everyone! Something unexpected happened today - when I went to the Store, I saw two new members-only costumes for Mythology Island! They are the Cyclops and Icarus:

Mythology2 Mythology1

This is really interesting – Mythology Island has never had a members’ gear pack in the Store! We know there were plans for Mythology to be the next SUI (sound-updated island), although it’s been about 3 months since the Creators announced that. This might be the beginning of it!

Also, look forward to Mission Atlantis Island on Thursday – I’ll be contributing to the guide! :P

The winner of the Create Your Dream Island is….

*tries to open envelope*

oh come on. Open. Please! D-does anyone have a paper cutter? I… I wish this would just open up!

*suddenly, the envelope opens*

Huh? Oh! It’s open! Like… I just used up one of my three wishes or something. And so the winner is…

Sarah S. from South Carolina with

Arabian Nights Island!!!

Arabian Nights Island? Holy cow, we’re going to explore the old Arabian lore! Genie! Forty thieves! Wow… This is just… Wow…

Inspired by her father’s souvenirs from Kuwait, she was the lucky Poptropican whose island idea will become a reality – which means she must know some of this island’s secrets! You can read her interview with the Poptropica Creators on the Creators’ Blog.

Congratulations from the PHB to Sarah on winning! We can’t wait to play your island!

BT out!

Mission Atlantis: sneak peeks from the Daily Pop & Tour

With Mission Atlantis Island releasing this Thursday to members, why not take a look at what we Poptropica adventurers may soon be facing in the unknown depths of the sea? These sneak peeks from the Daily Pop may give us some hints about what’s going to go down (click to enlarge pics)–

So here’s what we can gather from these pictures – deep under the sea, it looks like there’s a big pink cylindrical tube that will lead you through a puzzle of smaller tubes (which you must re-assemble to ensure a secure passageway). You’ll be traveling in a little pod, as we saw in the trailer video, and you’ll use clues to lead you to pieces (of random shards, perhaps forming the “puzzle key”?). There’ll also be some awesome sea creatures, like sharks and sea dragons! Hey, not a bad analysis, eh? :)

Fuzzy-B also posted some Daily Pop pics for Mission Atlantis a while back (back before we even knew what they was for!); you can check out his post here.

And here’s the description for Episode 1 from the official Tour page:

It was supposed to be simple: photograph rare sea creatures, then head back to the surface. But a stunning discovery leads you to a brand new mission!

There’s also a few more sneak peeks on the Tour page; check them out:

The underwater scenes here are a bit reminiscent of the excavation of Poptropolis Games 2013, although not quite the same – for those of you who don’t remember, there was a period of time just before the Games arose again where players could dive down into a sea (a bit like this one) and win a point for their tribe every time they reached the bottom (congrats, again, to Wildfire).

We can see the waters getting darker here – a sign that it’s pretty deep down. Also, just as Atlantis comes from Greek mythology, the ship’s name is “Medusa”! Medusa is also another term for jellyfish.

Oh, and remember the flying sneak peek from last week? We can now confirm that it is in fact for Episode 3 of Survival, because a background file for the radio tower we saw is in Poptropica’s files for Survival 3! Here’s what it looks like in its entirety:

Anyway, Mission Atlantis: Episode 1 comes out this Thursday, April 17 to members, and you can get your Diving Suit from the Store now! Non-members, don’t feel too left out — Survival: Episode 1 will be available to all on the same day. :) Are you excited for some deep-sea diving?!

They’ve been dreamt of and submitted

whts pooping pooptropi- Oh wait, what? Oh, we’re not doing that anymore? Okay. Thank heavens, that joke was killing my brain cells. ;-;

What’s popping, Poptropicans? Blake here, with an interesting tidbit. Wait, what was it? I don’t know, I wasn’t paying attention when I read the PCB at al- OH WAIT, the winner of the Create Your Own Dream Island Contest will finally be announced tomorrow!

pregenerated

So yeah, I think that the Island who wins will personally be MINE. *puts on ‘I’m Gloating’ suit* Blake Island, here we come, baby! Hey, it was either that or an Island based on the Map from Dora the Explorer! “Explore, collect, compete”, right?

Well, that’s pretty much it! Stay popping, Poptropicans.

-Blake

To dive, you need a Diving Suit…

Hey everyone! This is quick post notifying you that the members only Diving Suit for Mission Atlantis Island is now available in the Store!

Madivingsuit

When you press the spacebar while wearing the costume, the headlamp will light up.

If you didn’t know, Mission Atlantis Island: Episode 1 (“Into the Deep”) is coming out on Thursday, April 17, 2014 for members. I will try to get a guide out quick for everyone, so don’t worry! Also, Survival Island: Episode 1 (guide here) is coming out to non-members on April 17 as well! Feel free to use our guide for help! Anyway, that’s it! Cya later!
