Thanks to PHB reader Aang, we’ve got the name for our next Poptropica island – Virus Hunter Island! It turns out that Poptropica artist Nasan Hardcastle has posted pictures on his blog for characters he has designed, including this image below of what looks like characters for the next island:
EDIT: About a day after this PHB post, the image above was taken down. Looks like someone’s been checking up on us! But they can’t take back what we now know. ;D
(By the way, check out Nasan’s site, Soft-Shack, for more cool Poptropica artwork.) A Whois search for virushunterisland.com confirms that Poptropica has owned the domain since March 12, 2013, and it even re-directs to Poptropica. Hmmm…
You may remember or have noticed the Daily Pop sneak peeks featuring Poptropicans exploring the human body’s interior, which shows us that the next island, Virus Hunter, will involve exploring a Poptropican’s insides. Plus, from the characters above, we can see it has something to do with a gym. Cardio exercise time!
Now… what about Dr. Lange? (First of all, is she named after Poptropica designer Ashley Lange? Creators’ inside joke, perhaps?) Silver Wolf and BT think she may be a suspicious character (evidently, red goggles + lab coat = PURE EVIL). But who knows?
So… Virus Hunter Island! Get excited like an electron in an excited state! (*ahem* chemistry joke) Stay tuned to the PHB for more updates!
