Snow on Home Island, Hula Hare, Realms, & more!

Hey Poptropicans!

First of all, it’s snowing on Home Island (and also on the PHB)! Fancy. The NPC (non-player character) in front of the Shop is wearing a costume that fluctuates between yeti and Jack Frost, and the other NPCs are carrying candy canes. It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

If you take the blimp over to Poptropica Realms, there’s a new loading screen featuring Dr. Hare playing with a blue hula hoop! You can also see this in action with this link. So far, this only seems to appear before Realms is loaded. (Thanks to Happy Panda for the tip!)

Speaking of Realms, the Creators haven’t posted much in the way of Remarkable Realms as of late – until just recently, when they featured Loud Chicken’s “Esador Cityon the official blog! To visit this magnificent cityscape, use the Realms code 72pyj.

It’s been almost a year since Poptropica updated their homepage layout, but if you ever want to go back to the classic layout where there was less clicking around to get to the game, Nice Hawk of Poptrickia recently shared this link that allows you to do just that:

If you prefer the original page, be sure to bookmark the link while it lasts!

There’s also a few things going on relating to the Poptropica graphic novel – the first volume, Mystery of the Map, will be released March 1, 2016 in bookstores, and if you’re a US resident, you can even enter this giveaway on Goodreads for a chance to win a copy of the book!

If you view the book on Amazon, you can also see what the book cover will look like (pictured below). (Ehh… the design could be better. 😛 ) Also, check out this wall decal of Oliver in Poptropica HQ that the Creators shared on Twitter!

Did you know you could read a preview of the graphic novel on this Poptropica page? But don’t worry, you can continue reading the whole thing over on the PHB’s Comics page!

Have you flipped through the latest PHB magazine, Issue #28 of The POPCORN? Poptropica recently gave us a shout-out, which gives even more reason for you to check it out!

Anyway, be sure to catch up on all the happenings below. Stay popping, Poptropicans! 😀

    Thanks to Slanted Fish for giving me credit on the Hula Hare. This is why I love the PHB: they are nice and awesome.

What's popping, Poptropicans?
