UPDATE: Thanks to Blue Robot, we now know a 4th creator and their username! Justin Lacy is confirmed to be Hazmat Hermit! Click this link to see PROOF. For more details and speculation of the “who’s who” mystery of the Poptropica Creators, you can check out the post under this one by Gazek and this thread by ÐéåᶵҤșɫΔᶩҝƩƦ.
Not much real exciting news in the world of Poptropica! However, there is a new advertisement in between locations. It’s for the new PBS Kids show Dinosaur Train. It is (from a quick look at Wikipedia) created by Craig Bartlett who also made the television series Hey Arnold!, a show that I loved. It premieres September 7th. Check it out!
Sorry, there’s no sound. =( Also, this ad only shows up for 6-8 year-olds. So, if you want to see this in Poptropica and you’re older, just create a new account.
Next, there have been some minor edits to the Poptropica website itself. As you know, the avatar studio was recently unveiled, and the creators added a button for it.
Also, the little yellow button/spiky balloon thing that was next to Astro Knights that provided a link to the trailer is gone! I suppose it wasn’t really new anymore. =P You can find it and other videos at this link: CLICK ME =D
We also have discovered a news site that gives more confirmation that RTV Island is still coming out! This article also details that there will be Poptropica books releasing soon, too! Cool! It also details that Poptropica has (at the time the article was written) made it to the list of the 300 top viewed websites! Be sure to read this whole article below:
This next article also gives some neat achievements Poptropica has managed to achieve. DId you know that more than 120 MILLION characters have been created on the website? THAT’S OVER 9000! They also periodically get 7.5 million kids visiting their site a month. They all come from over 70 different countries! Did you know that Poptropica even comes in over 90 different languages to accommodate all of those visitors from all of those countries? Awesome! Article:
Wow. Looking back on Poptropica, I have to say it has come a long way. From day one, it has continued to entertain and impress many with its engaging islands to play and more ways to hang with your buddies than you can imagine. All I have to say is… THREE CHEERS FOR POPTROPICA! YAY!
