Fonts in Poptropica are fascinatingly fun and fresh, and in this article, we’ll explore the main typefaces Poptropica uses and how you can get them on your computer!
Title font: GhostKid AOE
The title font on Poptropica is called GhostKid AOE, and it is seen mainly in the Poptropica logo. In order to make the logo stand out, Poptropica modified it a little by squishing the letters and adjusting the sloping.
It costs about US$20 and you can buy it for your computer from the MyFonts website.
Dialogue font: Creative Block BB
When characters speak, it’s called dialogue. The font used in Poptropica’s speech bubbles is called Creative Block BB (the ‘BB’ standing for Blambot, the company that produced this font). It’s also found in many other places on Poptropica, even the login homepage. This typeface is completely in uppercase.
You can download this font completely free on the Blambot website.
Description font: Billy Serif
The description font used in Poptropica can be seen mostly on the names and descriptions of the item cards. It’s called Billy Serif – serifs are the tails on letters, but not all typefaces have them (this one does, but the other two mentioned above don’t).
It costs US$38 from the SparkyType Fonts website.
The typefaces listed above are just a few of the main ones you’ll see, but Poptropica uses a lot more other fonts too. Here’s a handful of them (thanks, HPuterpop & Elphangor!):
