- Steamworks Island is Poptropica’s 14th island. It was released to members on August 12, 2010 and September 9, 2010 for non-members.
- The island is inspired by steampunk, a sub-genre of science fiction featuring steam-powered machinery.
- Common room: Steamworks Gear Shop
- From July 16-30, 2010, members who logged in received a Steamworks Mech Pilot costume.
- In Sully’s Steam-Powered Paraphernalia, there’s a model of the Poptropica blimp.
- At the Hub, there’s a ball-tilting maze game similar to the classic wooden box Labyrinth game.
- The quiet atmosphere of this island means you will seldom interact with, or even come across, other characters.
- The name of the mechanical companion who follows you is called Sprocket, which is also the name of a wheel-like object found in machinery.
- When you ring the bell to wake Sprocket inside Sully’s, it will make an audible “ding” noise.
- On the blackboard in the greenhouse, it says “Hazmat was here” – probably in reference to Poptropica Creator alias Hazmat Hermit.
- One of the questions you can ask Sprocket after he becomes more talkative is what he does for fun. He’ll say he’s been writing his autobiography and wants to call it I, Robot – which could be a reference to several works.
- We’re told the inhabitants of Steamworks Island have been frozen for 200 years, which calculated from present time would mean around the time of the Industrial Revolution, when all this steam technology would have been rampant.
