Introducing… Poptropica Worlds!

Let’s get right to it!

Apparently the Creators are going to be showing use a whole new world soon. *cough* Aladdin references aside, we seriously do have some news on New Poptropica! Finally!

Well, we already know that New Pop, or should I now say Poptropica Worlds, didn’t get released in 2016 of course, like it was first expected to be. However, we now have a new time frame to look forward to! While “Spring 2017” is fairly broad, at least it’s something. And generally speaking, when given a seasonal release date we can safely assume that the exact date is towards the beginning of said season, in this case Spring.

Apart from the release date, we can actually tell a lot from this video announcement! For one, the normal Poptropica art style we have come to know and love is just slightly different. It looks like we will be keeping the signature round head, eyes, and absent neck, but we will now have more detailed hands/arms and legs/feet!

In addition to these new looks, according to the Creators, we will have a ton of other new features to look forward to as well:

  • New, exciting Worlds to explore
  • Favorites from the original Poptropica, remastered for Poptropica Worlds
  • One account for everything Poptropica!
  • Your very own customizable home (remember this poll?)
  • More costumes than ever
  • Daily prizes and awesome games
  • And more to come…

Since “only test dummies are allowed into Poptropica Worlds right now,” we will just be getting some sneak peeks of what’s going on behind the scenes until New Poptropica officially comes out!

In addition, keep an eye out on the Poptropica Help Chat (PHC) around 8:30-9:00 EST tonight – Jessica said that she will visit there around that time! (Check out our recap about her visit in this post, where she answers questions about Poptropica Worlds!)

I know that there has been a lot of suspicion circulating around this huge update, but based on this preview I say we keep an open mind for now. Who knows, this could be great! Heck, hopefully we might even get some more information on the entire Poptropica Universe and its backstory… 😀

Time to Vote: What will be February’s IotMs?

Hey there, Poptropicans!

It’s Happy Lobster, and I’ve got some good news for you. As many of you would know, Islands of the Month takes place monthly (obviously), and so that means that two brand-new IotMs will be announced once January ends and February commences.

In a quick summary, IotMs result in the following:

  • 500 credits are given for first-time finishers of corresponding islands, and 300 credits are given to replays;
  • IotM members-only store costumes and powers will return for a limited time;
  • Behind-the-scenes artworks, scenes, plots, and other items of IotMs unseen prior to their according months will be showcased on the Creators’ Blog, and;
  • Captain Crawfish will make any video walkthroughs for IotMs that don’t have one already created.

But this time, you get to decide one IotM for February – out of Super Power Island and Reality TV Island. Sadly, you will not be able to determine February’s other IotM – which as of yet is unknown – but one is more than good enough, right?

super2bpower2bvs-2breality2btv

Anyhow, the poll ends by Friday, January 27th, at midnight, ET. The island with the most votes by then will become a February IotM. Vote on the Creators’ Blog now!

Creator Q&A: Poptropica Worlds Edition

Hey everyone, it’s Perfect Sky!

This afternoon, I received a message from Poptropica Creator Skinny Moon on Twitter, informing me that she’d join us on the Poptropica Help Chat for a Q&A session. She popped on around 9:15 EST, and stayed for about an hour, answering our questions about the big announcement – Poptropica Worlds! Here’s a little recap of the Q&A:

creator-q-and-a

Criaha: How are you??
Skinny Moon: I’m fine, how are you all? What’s going on? Seems like there is some discontent about Poptropica Worlds…???

Fast Lizard: Will we have more realistic hands in the new version or was that just for the trailer? If that’s an answerable question
Skinny Moon: Honestly I don’t know. Feedback is good. I can pass on that some of you want more realistic hands and think the legs are too long.

Perfect Star: Do u know when it will be released?
Skinny Moon: No, no exact date. As you can probably imagine, lots of things can come up during game design so we can’t commit to an exact date!

Tall Cactus: Are worlds islands?
Skinny Moon: Yes, worlds = islands. Worlds are islands. Poptropica Worlds will stay true to the concept of Poptropica.

Shaky Skunk: Will we be able to transfer our old stuff (including looks)?
Skinny Moon: Yes, the plan is for your avatar and all your old stuff to port over!

Blake: I like the concept of test dummies though, it gives Pop that industrial aspect that I seem to like for some reason
Skinny Moon: The crash test dummies are just for the video and for our internal testing.
Skinny Moon: There will be a mix of beloved previous islands/worlds and brand new ones!

Tall Cactus: How many islands are being transferred? Will their plots be changed?
Skinny Moon: Can’t get into details like that quite yet. I can just say there will be a mix of remastered old islands/worlds and brand new ones in Poptropica Worlds! And remember that Poptropica didn’t start with 40+ Islands all at once. These things take time…

TechWizard: Will the dummies be in the final game?
Skinny Moon: No, the dummies are just for testing

Tall Cactus: Will we still have names like Tall Cactus?
Skinny Moon: I am almost positive that you’ll still have fun names like Tall Cactus. You should be able to port over your name, look., and all your stuff!

Tall Cactus: Why are islands being called worlds now?
Skinny Moon: “worlds” is a term that is more universal in gaming

Perfect Sky: What does “One account for everything Poptropica!” mean? Does this mean one account for all Poptropica websites or something (maybe the old site will still be there)? Or does this mean one Poptropica account per email address?
Skinny Moon: One account for all Poptropica everything!

Shaky Skunk: Can your avatar be genderless in new pop?
Skinny Moon: I don’t know about genderless, tbh. But lots of customization possibilities, for sure.

Tall Cactus: What will happen to the original Pop?
Skinny Moon: Original Pop is not going anywhere, no worries

Megaman : Since I saw that Poptropica Worlds video, are we going to create our own homes and have other multiplayer Poptropcians visiting our home?
Skinny Moon: You will have your own customizable home. Not sure about other Poptropicans visiting it – I don’t know the answer to that

Tall Cactus: When will we get more in-depth details on Pop Worlds?
Skinny Moon: We’ll release more info gradually. No time table, tbh. But I’m hoping every few weeks I’ll have something new to show/tell you all about Poptropica Worlds!

Perfect Star: Will there be colored eyes?
Skinny Moon: I don’t know about colored eyes

Magic Panda: How different will the art style be? Will there be more shading, bigger/smaller characters, etc.
Skinny Moon: From what I know so far, the art style will still be very “Poptropica” – but remastered, updated, better than ever!

Criaha: So I know me and many other people in the community have more than one Pop account (I myself have around 5 ish? I think?) Will we be able to link them?
Skinny Moon: I don’t know about linking lots of accounts, sorry!
Skinny Moon: Costume contest: still going through the 100s of entries and narrowing down. Hope to open voting later this month!

Blake: Is there any possible way that you could answer exactly how far customization would be able to go at this point in time? Distance between eyeballs, eye color, etc
Skinny Moon: I don’t know exact details about customization

Quiet Berry: Will we have to use a browser other than Chrome?
Skinny Moon: You will be able to use whatever browser you want, as far as I know

Short Feather: Will it only be available on certain devices, or will it be accessible to all?
Skinny Moon: Poptropica Worlds will be available on web and mobile devices

Chris: Are you from Boston or did you move here for the office?
Skinny Moon: I have been in the Boston area since college – I went to Boston College/ #GoBC

Barefoot Hammer: Will the Poptropica app be updated to the new Pop, or will it stay the same?
Skinny Moon: Current Pop app and Pop Worlds are two separate games.

idk: The new Poptropica will be on http://poptropicaworlds.com , correct?
Skinny Moon: No that isn’t correct. As of now Pop Worlds will also live on poptropica.com

Shaky Skunk: What ever happened to the other bloggers on the Creators’ Blog?
Skinny Moon: The other Poptropica people who used to blog just don’t have as much time to blog anymore, tbh! I am a writer and a social media person so it makes sense for me to do it. I love writing!

TechWizard: WHAT ARE THE HOUSES LIKE?
Skinny Moon: I don’t have details on the houses yet – except that the voting that everyone did on the blog was absolutely taken into account!
Skinny Moon: I’m starting to understand what the Wendy’s social media manager feels like

Bendy Flyer: Are you and the Creators going to use Unity for Poptropica Worlds?
Skinny Moon: Yes we are using Unity!

idk: Games in unity can also be ported to video game consoles. Any plans for that?
Skinny Moon: Great question. I don’t know of any plans for consoles but hey. Who knows?

idk: So Sandbox Networks only registered http://poptropicaworlds.com to protect the name?
Skinny Moon: Well, we need the domain name. This is just me guessing but if you types that URL in the future I bet it would lead to Poptropica.com

👋🏼🐎🏃🏼: What do you do at poptropica? And how old are you?
Skinny Moon: I’m the social media/community manager. I also have done a lot of writing for the company. I’ve been with FEN/StoryArc/Poptropica for two years now. And no, not telling my age.

Shaky Skunk: Burgers or hotdogs?
Skinny Moon: BURGERS. duh

Shaky Skunk: Will there be Poptropica Worlds merch?
Skinny Moon: I’d love to see Poptropica Worlds merch!

👋🏼🐎🏃🏼: That sounds like an amazing job, and also totally understable about not telling your age
Skinny Moon: It IS an amazing job. I work with awesome people. And what’s better than working with Poptropica and its awesome fans?!?!

HPuterpop: Do you think you will ever make any appearances in an island quest?
Skinny Moon: That would be wicked cool but who knows…

Friendly Foot: Will you ever change your signature outfit?
Skinny Moon: I think about changing my outfit but I feel like I need to stay recognizable. So I just try to accessorize differently each month!

Tall Cactus: Will Pop ever get a TV show?
Skinny Moon: Would love to see a Pop TV show! Not in the works rn as far as I know

Gregoryk_: Do you play any games besides Poptropica?
Skinny Moon: I’ll be totally honest: I don’t have a whole lot of time outside of work and family

Well, that’s all for this Q&A session. Be sure to join us on the PHC  for a chance to chat with Skinny Moon, as well as many other Poptropica players in the community!

PHB Pop-over Special: Inside Out

insideout_pop.png

Hey there, Poptropicans!

It’s Happy Lobster, and I’ve got a new Pop-over Special for you – and this time the crossover is between Poptropica and an animated film loved by many: Inside Out.

For those of you who don’t know about Inside Out, it’s a Pixar movie about a girl called Riley, and her personified emotions, who are in charge of her daily life – which gets slightly out of control as a result of the sudden departure of Joy. If you haven’t already watched it, make sure to do so – it boasts a simply brilliant plot and the perfect amount of action.

Poptropica costumes have been made for some of the unique characters seen in this film. For costumizable costume parts, simply add each character as a friend in Poptropica via their usernames shown in the graphic (or below in the costume descriptions), and Costumize.

  • Joy (JoyPHB): Hair is from Store item Mythology Surfer, the male version (275 credits), mouth is from retired Store item April Fool (use iPop to obtain it, since it is no longer availbale from the Store), dress is from the ASG GreenRockGirlASG.
  • Sadness (SadnessPHB): Everything is costumizable from her, so just add Sadness as friend and costumize!
  • Disgust  (DisgustPHB): Hair is from Store item Vampire Girl 3 (275 credits), bangs are from Store item Prom Queen (275 credits), blush/eyelashes are from the ASG *cloud*6, scarf is from Store item Cowgirl (275 credits), dress is from the ASG tinkertorch.
  • Anger  (AngerPHB): Baldness is from the ASG MilkBoxASG (take off milk carton headwear to see it), mouth is from Mike Teavee of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Island, and the shirt, belt and pants are costumizable.
  • Fear (FearPHB): Hair is from the ASG anything662, glasses, mouth, bowtie, shirt and pants are costumizable.
  • Riley (RileyPHB): Bangs are from Store item Vampire Girl 3 (275 credits), hair, smile, shirt and pants are costumizable.
  • Bing Bong  (BingBongPHB): Hat is from man with suitcase on Main Street of Mystery Train Island, the ears’ ID is sponsorsbdog, the elephant trunk is from the ASG realms#6ASG, the suit is from Store item Magician (275 credits), the tail is from the ASG realms#7ASG, the mouth and bowtie are costumizable.

So, enjoy the costumes, let your own Joy dominate your life, and stay popping!

And, yeah, you probably shouldn’t do that.

Popspiracy: Speculations on Villain Backstories

(Hey Poptropicans! This is a guest post written by Smart Flame, who also runs his own site, The Smart Way to Poptropica. This post is just theory and not to be taken as fact. With that said, enjoy! –🐠)

popspiracy-smartflame

Hi guys, it’s Smart Flame. In this post, I’ll be inventing a backstory for various Poptropica villains and exploring possibilities as to how they turned evil.

Note that since some villains already have backstories explained by the game (such as Ringmaster Raven or Binary Bard), I will not be covering those. Well, let’s get right into it!

MYRON VAN BUREN (Survival Island): Myron wanted to be the greatest hunter alive, and in order to accomplish that, he needed to top his ancestors’ accomplishments by finding a new and bigger hunt: Poptropicans. He’s never lost a chance to catch his big hunt… until you came along.

mvb

BLACK WIDOW (Counterfeit Island): Even in her youth, she was the creative culprit, the elegant embezzler, the stylish stealer. When she was a child, she ruined things; she was messy and disgusting. When her parents told her to be neat, she rebelled. She used what she considered an artistic ability to vandalize places and things, which eventually led to vandalizing some of the world’s greatest art pieces.

black widow ice

DR. HARE (24 Carrot Island): Mad scientist Dr. Harvey Hare loved experimenting – especially on carrots. With a carrot farm just a mile away from him, his experiments never lacked his favorite ingredient – that is, until he started buying the whole harvest of carrots. To save their farms, the farmers started limiting his supply shipment. As a solution, the scientist put on a rabbit costume and starting stealing the carrots, becoming known as Dr. Hare.

drhareraces

CAPTAIN CRAWFISH (Skullduggery Island): When James and Samuel Ridley were boys, their father was the leader of their island at Fort Ridley. When their father died, one of them had to assume Governor, so, James, being the oldest, assumed head governor. Sam was angered by his brother’s decision, left home, and headed to the seven seas. He become a ruthless pirate known as Captain Crawfish. The one place he knew where there was treasure, enough for him to automatically assume the head governor position, was Skullduggery island, which was where he set sail for.

This really sticks in my craw.

This really sticks in my craw.

OCTAVIAN (Mystery of the Map Island): Octavian was once a poor child captured by the knights on Mystery of the Map Island, until he was offered freedom if he double-crossed his friends. His freedom was granted, but he still worked for the knights, double-crossing everyone worth more than a dime.

DIRECTOR D (Spy Island): David D. Denali was an unpopular citizen who was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Walking home from work one day, he was kidnapped by some B.A.D. agents. They convinced him to become their commercial leader; the face of their operations (the one everyone would see), and he accepted because he wanted fame. But soon he realized that he was stuck there and he’d be tortured if he left, which was why he carried out so many dastardly plans.

director d bad

OMEGON & TESSA TURNCOAT (PoptropiCon Island): Omegon was the son of a powerful leader. His father wanted him to realize that the great power he’d have one day would also be a responsibility. But when his father saw the greed in Omegon’s eyes, he banished him from the planet. Out of anger he disobeyed his father’s greatest rule, responsibility. Meanwhile, Tessa Turncoat was a classic fan girl who fell in love with Omegon. After vowing her life to his, he messed up her mind and tortured her into doing what she did.

SHOGUN (Red Dragon Island): The evil Shogun and Basho were brothers. When Basho did exceedingly well in karate and impressed their father immensely, the Shogun-t0-be son was jealous.  He felt the only way to impress his father was to create an empire in which everyone lived in fear – and that’s what he did.

red dragon10

COUNT BRAM (Vampire’s Curse Island): In the early 1800s, Bram Stoker fell in love with a fair maiden. But soon he was attacked by the vampire’s curse, which ended all love he could ever have. He locked himself in a castle waiting for the day of his maiden’s return, and grew angrier with each passing day.

RED BARONESS (Monkey Wrench Island): Grace Earhart, sister of Amelia Earhart, never lived up to her sister’s fame.  When the big race came around, she knew it was her chance to ruin her sister’s fame and claim fame for herself.

monkeywrench21

40 THIEVES (Arabian Nights Island): The 39 poor people of the kingdom, a collective who survived together, had gotten a new leader: Scheherazade.  She was a good speaker who could make anyone listen to her. She created her own dynasty by turning the beggars into thieves. Their legacy was unstoppable; that is, until you came along.

Alert: Be careful in a den of thieves.

Alert: Be careful in a den of thieves.

FRENCHIE (Mystery Train Island): The French reporter, known as Frenchie, was amazed by everything she saw at the Paris World’s Fair. When the Chicago World’s Fair was announced, she was furious, because she thought they were trying to show up the one in Paris. Not wanting the Chicago one to be better, she tried to sabotage it.

mt37

EL MUSTACHIO GRANDE (Wild West Island): El Mustachio was the marshal until he was kicked off the job because of violence towards the citizens, but he was angry because he thought he was fired unfairly. He got on his horse, took off, and formed a gang greater than any other, seeking revenge on the Diamond Plains.

Wild West: Defeated!

Wild West: Defeated!

GRETCHEN GRIMLOCK (Cryptids Island): Gretchen was the daughter of an eccentric billionaire. After her father died, she got none of the money – it only went to Harold Mews.  She would’ve done anything for the money. After she heard of the million dollar reward, she felt that it was rightfully hers, and would stop at nothing to get it.

grimlock

COPY CAT (Super Power Island): Copy Cat was a singer on Pop-Tube (Poptropica YouTube), but she wasn’t popular at all.  She wanted to be a big-time singer, and tried to achieve this by plagiarizing from popular songs and calling them her own.

Copy protection gets tougher all the time.

Copy protection gets tougher all the time.

SPEEDING SPIKE (Super Power Island): Speedy Spike was used to driving on a highway where the speed limit was 120 miles per hour. When he drove on regular highways, he went way too fast, and disregarded the police’s attempts to accost him.

They really need to clean up these subway cars.

SIR REBRAL (Super Power Island): Sir Rebral stole people’s identities by playing mind games on them to confuse them. When the cops figured out what he was doing, they tried to stop him, but he played mind tricks on them too. However, one cop outsmarted him, and he was arrested.

super7

RATMAN (Super Power Island): After Ratman robbed a store, he was caught by the police.  To cover for his crimes, he blamed his friends to get out his situation, but when his friends were out of jail, he had to go into hiding because he’d betrayed them – which is how he ended up living in the sewers.

super8

CRUSHER (Super Power Island): When Crusher and his friends visited the natural museum of endangered animals, they visited the bug section. Crusher was bored, so he decided to smash some of the bugs – which turned out to be the last of their species – and was arrested for his crime.

Screenshot at Jul 17 09-28-50

BETTY JETTY (Super Power Island): Betty Jetty failed her final exam at flight school, failing to get her flying license. Since she couldn’t get hired for a job without it, she printed a fake one. But when her new employers saw how badly she flew their planes, they knew she was a fraud.

super12

MR. SILVA (Shrink Ray Island): With CJ as his student, he was always jealous of her inventions. He was so envious that he wanted to have them, and one day he decided that he had to steal it.

mr-silva

POPTROPICA ADVISORS (Mocktropica Island): After having their jobs denied as Poptropica animators, they wanted to destroy Poptropica. So they got jobs as the different advisors and tried to ruin the fun Poptropica experience.

ZEUS (Mythology Island): Zeus was an ignorant boy who always thought he was the best of his brothers. But when his father split the power over Mythology Island equally between them, he was mad. He wanted all the power he could get, and would try and get it in any way possible.

zeus defeated

BOOTED BANDIT (Escape From Pelican Rock Island): Your Poptropican and the Booted Bandit were twins – but you were two minutes older. Your mother always favored you because you were the oldest. This made your sibling angry, and they decided to run away from home. When they had no money left, they decided to start stealing.

efpr39

CONSTRUCTION CREW (Twisted Thicket): The head construction worker once ventured too far into the forest with his daughter. When they entered the Nokken territory, the hungry Nokken took his daughter away from him. The construction boss was so deeply mad and sad that he forever held a deadly grudge against the forest.

Pop 5: Features for Friends that’d be Fancy

(Hey Poptropicans! This is a guest post written by TallMelonisCool, a Poptropica player in the community. In this post he’ll be sharing his ideas for features that could be added to Friends. Enjoy! –🐠)

pop5-friends

Hey guys! So we all know the Friends feature, released back in 2012, that changed Poptropica forever, allowing us to keep up with our Poptropica friends. But over the years, I’ve been thinking that there are some features the Creators should really add to make friending a lot more fun. Let’s get onto the Pop 5 list of potential features for friends that would be improvements!

1) Showing friend’s Realms stats

I’d like to see how my friends are doing in Realms. There could be a new box on the profile for Realms stats, and clicking it would show things like:

  • what level your friend is at
  • how much Poptanium they have
  • when was the last time they visited Realms
  • how many Realms they’ve made, as well as the ability to visit those Realms
  • all the public Realms your friend has liked

2) Battle stats (wins & losses)

Another feature that would be cool to see: clicking on a friend’s battle ranking on their profile to show their wins and losses in the common room games. You’d be able to tell which games they liked more, which games they were stronger at or weaker at, and perhaps there could even be a setting for displaying your favorite game.

3) Dates in which they accomplished things

Date statistics would be interesting to see, and this could apply to various things, like:

  • the date your friend first started playing Poptropica (maybe even with a footnote for status of new player, old player, or somewhere in between)
  • the date they last played Poptropica (it’s good to know if an account has been inactive for a while)
  • the date they completed an island (or perhaps when they got each photo in their album, like photo timestamps)

4) A “birth” video

This is a small feature, but I think it would be cool to see what your friend’s character looked like when they first started playing – even before their first island photo or costume saved in a closet.

What did they look like fresh out of the box they popped out of when their account was made? That I’d like to know, and I think we should have a “birth video” on each friend profile to show us just that. You know, for the memories.

5) Knowing who friended you

As Perfect Sky mentioned in a post of hers, Pop 5: Features We’d Love in New Poptropica, one more feature that would be awesome would be to see who has friended you.

This would be cool because I can also friend those who’ve friended me back. Plus, I’ve got some big game achievements (like completing Early Poptropica about 500 times, and Shark Tooth about 100), and I want to know who gets to see it!

Well, that’s my list! What features do you want to see added in Poptropica Friends? Do you disagree with anything I said in this list? Let me know what you think in the comments below. Hope you have a great poppin’ day, and goodbye!
