Hey everyone, and welcome back to our BTS Overview & Theory series! This time, we’ll be covering Galactic Hot Dogs Island, written by myself (Spotted Dragon), Samwow5, and HPuterpop. Be sure to check out the last BTS post, which was for Arabian Nights, Episode 2: Lair of Thieves.
WARNING: SPOILERS BELOW (but that’s what you want, isn’t it?)
Overview of evidence
Since there have been so many Daily Pop sneak peeks for GHD Island, we won’t list them all here, but we have listed some below. Be sure to check out our Daily Pop Sneak Peek Archive page to see them all! Remember to click on the images to enlarge them.
Let’s start out with items. Below are all the items that will be used in the quest, or at least all that we could find. They include an egg, fuel cell, fruit, gelatin salad, giant spoon, guano, map-o-sphere, the island medal, and a seed pod. What most of these items will be used for, we aren’t entirely sure, but we might be able to piece everything together later on in the post. Pretty cool items, huh? Now let’s focus on scenes and dialog. Below we have included all the important scene designs for the island.
Again, pretty cool, huh? The designs are a perfect mix of Poptropica and Galactic Hot Dogs. 🙂 We have the layout of the island down, but what about its storyline? Below we have put together all the important pieces of dialog and other text. Again, click to enlarge.
Judging by the text, we seem to start the island off in the Space Port, or at least start to meet the characters there. It also looks like we will help Cosmoe in a food truck contest among other things. We also found a major piece of music that will be used throughout the adventure. Click here to hear it! Before we wrap things up, since this island is based off something that is not Poptropica-related (Galactic Hot Dogs), there is of course going to be some sort of ad building for the franchise, like on Red Dragon Island (Magic Tree House), or Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Those islands each have a building to promote the books. Below is an idea of what the GHD Store should have… in store for us.
Other than getting a glimpse at the GHD series, it seems like we will be able to customize the characters’ costumes too, since there will be mannequins inside.
In Galactic Hot Dogs Island, we will meet Cosmoe and Humphree and try to help them win the food truck contest. Along the way, we’ll run into trouble and meet Princess Dagger. We will most likely have to go around the island trying to help them perfect their Mega Dog and perhaps somehow bring peace to the galaxy. In our travels aboard the Neon Wiener spaceship, we’ll explore exotic planets, battle Jack-robots, and maybe even get to enjoy a hot dog. Maybe.
Remember, Galactic Hot Dogs Island is coming out Thursday, January 29 for members! It releases to everyone three weeks later, on February 19. To infinity and beyond!
