Heyyo Poptropicans, it’s Ultimate iPad Expert here with some super awesome news!
You may have noticed over the past few months in which the Creators have been teasing us about a new island. It seemed the time would never come when they’d announce the next island, even after putting it on the map last week. But the official details are finally here!
Just today, the Creators officially announced: Escape from Pelican Rock Island!
The Creators posted a trailer for the island and released the official Tour page! So, now we’re getting a fairly good idea of what this new island is about.
Some of the PHB authors have been speculating on this new island for quite a while now, and it seems we may be correct about some stuff. For one, we’ve been speculating about getting framed by a doppelgänger. We’ll have to wait and see some more official details, but the Creators gave us a few little hints on the plot in an island synopsis. The official island synopsis reads:
Pelican Rock is the toughest prison ever built. And after you’re framed for a crime you didn’t commit, it’s your new home! Use your wits to devise an escape plan, and your nerve to pull it off. But getting out is just the beginning — because the real criminal is still out there!
That’s about all the Creators have given us story-wise, but there are a number of sneak peeks showing the island, with even more on our Daily Pop Sneak Peeks Archive!
We also get a look at Escape From Pelican Rock’s member exclusive costume, Escapee Dr. Hare. Somewhat of an odd choice considering I’d assume Dr. Hare won’t actually be on the island (or will he?), but it’s a pretty cool costume nonetheless.
And, last up from the new Tour page is this awesome printable poster:
Plus, check out the PHB’s new Escape From Pelican Rock Island discussion page!
So, that wraps up all the latest info on Escape From Pelican Rock! I’m super excited for the new island. It looks like it’ll have super fun gameplay (perhaps like Survival: Cabin Fever or Spy Island, both of which I really enjoyed), and has an interesting story to it.
What do you think about this upcoming island? Comment below.
