Best of Land’s Dream Homes & Arab genie sketch

Hey Poptropicans! The Creators have posted their top ten entries for the Dream Homes portion of the Land challenge, and I’m honored to be listed among them! ❤ In fact, you can check out the PHB post below for an in-depth tour of my “slanted fish” Land. :mrgreen:

However, I don’t want to detract from the glory of the other picks (and there are some pretty great ones!), so here’s a gallery of the chosen Lands, along with their witty captions (click to enlarge):

Great entries, guys! And don’t feel bad if yours isn’t up there: the Creators received thousands of entries over the weekend, and they promise that they looked at every submission. The next/current theme until Oct 23 is Village, and the Creators will be announcing their favorites on Friday.

By the way, for more details on making the most of this sandbox feature, do check out the PHB’s Poptropica Labs (Land) Guide, now with a detailed chart for what you unlock at each level and how much Poptanium you need to get there! 😀

There’s also a poll on the sidebar of the Creators’ Blog asking “Who created your favorite Dream Home?” and so far, Zany Crown and her treehouse is taking the lead! These are the results:

  • Cool Sponge (7%)
  • Friendly Fish (that’s me!) (12%)
  • Golden Lightning (5%)
  • Golden Lobster (7%)
  • Hyper Fire (6%)
  • Mad Comet (10%)
  • Red Sun (4%)
  • Small Tiger (11%)
  • Striped Fox (2%)
  • Zany Crown (31%)

Also, is it just me, or are the Creators deliberately avoiding words like “contest” and “winners” for this “challenge”? Not that I have a problem with it; just an observation. What do you think? 😛

Another behind-the-scenes sketch has popped up on Poptropica’s Twitter, and this one’s an early character sketch for the unreleased Arabian Nights, Ep. 3! From the looks of it, it’s a female genie – perhaps the one from the Sultan’s lamp? We’ll have to wait and see.

Speaking of Arabian Nights Island, friendly reminder that Episode 1 will be available to all this Thursday, October 23 (at least according to one of Poptropica’s tweets)! And while we’re talking about upcoming releases, Poptropica has also tweeted what’s to come for ads:

Anyway, that’s all for now! Keep on popping on, Poptropicans. 😀

      Thanks, Sajo! You’re the second comment here, actually – sometimes people’s comments don’t show up for a while if they haven’t been auto-approved or moderated yet. 😛

      • Sajo8 says:

        I know, I know, but still. At least it seems to me I’m first! 😛 Also, I have current 404 Poptanium! 😮 I think that’s the most anyone has had! 😛

    Seriously guys, my computer breaks down for 2 days and you have a million new posts. But awesome! i wish i had the time to participate in the contest.
    (Aww! You guys keep changing the heading picture thingy at the top! *makes pouty face*

    • Slanted Fish says:

      Heh, well, there’s been a lot going on (especially on Poptropica’s very active Twitter)! Hopefully you can find some time during the public preview to play around with Land; it’s pretty cool. :mrgreen:

    • Slanted Fish says:

      From what they’ve said, it sounds like they do look at the entire Land (or at least, anything that has something remotely interesting constructed on it that isn’t auto-generated land space). If you use more than one separate area to build, presumably the Creators will want to look at that too. Remember to click on ‘share’ from the in-game menu to send entries to the Creators! 🙂

What's popping, Poptropicans?
