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.

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!

Flying – or falling? It’s time to try defying gravity!

Captain Crawfish of the Creators’ Blog recently posted this sneak peek involving a tiny Poptropican, wide sky, structure to the side (a satellite tower, perhaps?), along with the caption “WHEEEEEEE!!!”–

I wonder what this could be for? Tell us your thoughts in the comments section! :)

(EDIT: An anonymous tip speculates that this could be for Survival: Episode 3, which is supposed to be about creating a distress signal – notice the radio tower to the side!)

Anyway, if you’ve had your head up in the clouds (like the little guy in the pic above) for the past week or so, here’s a few PHB posts you can catch up on:

By the way, a new PHB page has been added to the Cool Stuff tab - Pop Quizzes, which lists 180+ Friends profile quiz questions and their possible answers all on one handy page! :D

Have a great weekend and stay awesome, Poptropicans! :D

Mission Atlantis is coming out next week!

Hey everyone! My assumption was right: the Creators will be alternating episodes! Mission Atlantis: Episode 1 (“Into the Deep”) will come out on April 17, 2014 to members!

missionatlantis3

Non-members, there’s nothing to frown about because Survival: Episode 1 (guide here) will come out on April 17, 2014 to everyone! Anyway, I’ll try to get a guide up as soon as I can. Cya later!
