Bye for now

If you love Poptropica as much as I do, you'll understand how hard it is to say this. School and busy activities are approaching, and I feel overwhelmed as it is. Thus, I am going to temporarily end the Post. Don't worry; I'll be back, but just not soon. I really enjoy blogging, but this time of year it's just too much for me.

Take care everyone
I appreciate you all,

The (somewhat short) wait is over

Greg Heffley's big news
The wait is over. Visit the Main Street of any Poptropica Island and talk to Greg Heffley for a look at the cover of the next Diary of a Wimpy Kid book!



Can't wait to read this one!


END OF PCB POST

Do you like Diary of a Wimpy Kid books? Did you just read that PCB post? Are you still sitting here reading this? Are you starting to feel confused by all my questions?
Okay, if you're still with me at this point, good grief, go to Poptropica.
:-]

Tuesday, July 27, 2010

Hey!!!

Hi everyone! Sorry it's been a while. I just wanted to tell everyone that a surprise guest will arrive at Poptropica. Check out this picture from the PCB:



Can you guess who this is?

Spoiler Alert! It's Greg from Diary of a Wimpy Kid!





EDIT: Greg is now waiting for you on any Main Street, so head over and see what he has to say.

Th-th-three N-n-new P-p-posts!

Try these new posts on for size:

What's all the Hub-bub?
One of the places you'll visit on Steamworks Island is what we call the Hub. It's a sight to see! A rickety tower, a massive drawbridge, and pot-bellied steam stoves powering everything. Safe to say that you've never seen anything like the Hub before.

Er, at least, you won't have seen anything like it. To start with, this marvel of modern engineering just looked like this:



Yes, it's hard to see what all the hubbub is about -- yet. Just wait until you see how this one develops!

THEN:

The Hub takes shape
The Hub started life as all of Poptropica does, as a simple idea and a sketch. Before long, we take that idea and turn it into reality. But did you know how many different revisions a single scene takes before it gets the Poptropica stamp of approval?

At first glance, this might look like a well developed scene.



But look a little more closely. Why is almost everything the same color? Why does it all look so flat? And what the heck is that blue thing on the right, anyway?

No, the Hub isn't done yet. Not even close.

FINALLY:

Filling in the Hub
Time for a pop quiz: Can you tell the difference between the picture we posted yesterday and the one below?



Most of the background elements still look the same as they did yesterday: flat and monochromatic. We're adding more detail to the Hub on Steamworks Island. We've colored in some of the more important foreground objects. They really pop off your screen!

That doorway in the upper-lefthand side of the screen looks mighty intriguing, wouldn't you say?

END OF PCB POSTS

Looks like a pretty interesting place, wouldn't you say? I bet they have some pretty high security...

Gamer Dude/Gamer Girl

For all you big time gamers out there, we have the costume for you. Actually, the store does. The Poptropica store. *Clicks tongue awkwardly* Uh, yeah. Anyway, the costumes come with pretty cool visors, so if you are into that stuff, what are you waiting for?!

The Fun Begins

Hello, and welcome to Calm Starfish's Super Amazing Incredibly Awesome Poptropica Partay! However, I regret to inform you that I am required to update you members about the newest PCB post: A Steamworks surprise is coming up for you members. Ugh, there. I said it. Now that that's out of the way, we can have a good time just as promised. Let's go!



First, I will choose one RANDOM member of the audience. *Coughs*

*Friendly Goose stands, tries to be inconspicuous while reading off an index card*
Friendly: Um, I will, er, volunteer, Clam.
Me: Calm!
Friendly (irritated) Well you wrote Clam!
Me: Whatever. Get up here!
*Friendly climbs up onto stage and stands next to me*
Friendly: So... What do I do?
Me: I want you to put on this blindfold-
Friendly: Say what?
Me: -Ride this bicycle sidesaddle with no handlebars-
Friendly: Huh?
Me: -And recite the Greek alphabet every other letter. Backwards.
Friendly: ...
Me: Alright! Hop to it!
Friendly: How about I ride the right way, no blindfold, and say the regular alphabet?
Me: NO! That's boring!
Audience: Yeah! Do it! Don't chicken out!
Friendly (glaring): Thanks, guys.
*Friendly allows me to tie blindfold on her, climbs onto bike, and rides it steadily for about two seconds. Suddenly she hits a hole in the wooden floor, and is launched off the bike, into the crowd*
Me: Ooh, that's gotta hurt!

THE END!

So...Much...Bubblegum

I am not gonna post ten pictures of gum from the store just because Dr. Hare did. I flatly refuse to promote membership, because it infuriates me! Instead, we're gonna have some fun.

Stay tuned!

100th Post-and shark costumes

Happy hundredth post to me, happy hundredth post to me! (I would keep singing, but I'd rather not embarrass myself) Yes, it's true. I must share my special post with a new PCB post, but to what better use should it be put?

Sink your teeth into these shark costumes
Have you had a chance to try out the new Hammerhead Shark costume in the Poptropica Store? I thought about it, but I couldn't bear to look at myself in the mirror. What would my shark parents think?

Don't forget, there are lots more neat ways to dress up like your favorite ocean predator in Poptropica. Also available in the store is this mean-looking Tiger Shark:



You don't need credits for all the fishy fun. On Shark Tooth Island, a street vendor will give you this snazzy dorsal fin, free of charge!



And, of course, you can always visit the lowest level of the Shark Museum on Shark Tooth Island and costumize the most handsome museum employee around.



All this neat shark stuff -- it's almost enough to get me to crack a smile! Almost.

END OF PCB POST

Saturday, July 10, 2010

2 new posts, both about predators.

Hmm, giant carnivorous plant, hammerhead shark. POPTROPICA WILL NEVER BE SAFE AGAIN!!!! Mm, ahem. Sorry about that. Anyway, here are the two newest posts:

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water...
I hope everyone is having a fun summer, while they squish red crabs on the beach. If you want to surprise your friends, try out the Hammerhead costume. It comes with a warm, limp fish.



And:

Steamworks monster animation test
Now that the we've decided what this plant monster should look like on the new Poptropica Island, Steamworks Island, the next step is to decide how the monster should move. We put together a quick and dirty animation test:

(Here, a photo of the animation test should be put up, but there wasn't a picture on the Creators' Blog [there was a space for it, but it seems like there was a problem] so I'll try to put up the picture as soon as possible)

Bet you wouldn't want to run into that thing in a dark alley!

All this has taken us nearly to the completion of a plant monster for Steamworks Island. We may still decide to change the monter's behavior, or some aspects of its appearance. After a few final touches, we'll put it all together -- but you'll have to wait until Steamworks Island launches to see it!

END OF PCB POST

Well, Hades, I have no idea if I should be scared of that thing, because I CAN'T SEE IT. Also, it looks like you misspelled the word "monster" and put "monter" instead. It's okay. I forgive you. *Turning to audience and saying loudly* AND I'M SURE THE AUDIENCE FORGIVES YOU TOO, RIGHT?!
*Audience* Uh, sure.
*Hades sweeps in* What was that I hear?
*Audience screams. Calm raises her hands and cries* Great job on the post! Heh heh, your posting was so brilliant, I can't even remember that you didn't post a picture.
*Hades* Excuse me?
*Gulp* Uh, we'll be right back. I hope...

Friday, July 9, 2010

Please welcome... The finished plant monster!

Yes, it's finally here- the completed bola! Careful now, don't let it get too close. It has been known to rip one's limbs off. Anyway. Please observe this presentation of the bola:

Plant monster, attack!
We've got a pretty scary looking monster at this point, but what good is a monster if it can't attack? This monster can swing its seed pods around from its head, before throwing them at you at high speed.



Looks like you're pretty small next to this thing, doesn't it? That's not all -- we haven't even seen the plant monster in motion yet.

END OF PCB POST

0_0 Did you see the size of that thing? It's enormous!

*Audience member 1* It's giant!

*Audience member 2* It's... GINORMOUS!

You got that right. We'd all better be on our toes at Steamworks Island. Well, that's all for now, folks. Have a nice day, night, and weekend.

Art: The penultimate step in the animation process

Steamworks plant monster art
After settling on a sketch we liked, it was time for to give a little more life to the plant monster that will be menacing players on Steamworks Island.

Below are two approaches to the plant monster. Can you spot the differences between them?



Little details, like the color of the planter, and big ones, like the plant's eye, can make a big difference in the monster's appearance.

The next step: animation test!

END OF PCB POST

I think that now, once the plants have some bright colors, that they're kind of cute. 8-) LOL I can't wait to see how they are used in the island!

Yet another fine monster sketch

Apparently this sketch came from the montage of drawings (see below post) that was posted yesterday.



It goes with this PCB post:

Steamworks monster sketch
Yesterday, you saw some of the earliest ideas for the plant monsters that will appear on the next Poptropica island, Steamworks Island. This one seemed appropriately icky.

[INSERT ABOVE PICTURE HERE]

It's still no more than a sketch -- just an outline of an idea. But we're already thinking about how the plant will look when it's colored and detailed, and how it will move. The next step is to take this sketch and Poptropica-ize it!

The Monster is Born

Evolution of a Steamworks Island monster
For Steamworks Island, the we'll pit you against a variety of mutated plant monsters. But how did we make the creepiest, crawliest, ickiest plant monsters around?

We started by brainstorming.



These are just some of the sketches we drew to help us visualize what our monstrous creations would look like. Not all of the sketches will make it into the final product -- in fact, most won't -- but this allows us to try out different ideas. Then we'll take the very best concepts and work them into Poptropica.

END OF PCB POST

I don't think I would ever be able to draw like that. Whoever did could should become an animation artist for a cartoon LOL. Anyway, we haven't been given much detail on Steamworks Island's quest or the kind of people we'll be meeting there. Will there be any people? 0_0 It's still a mystery...

Happy 4th!

Happy Independence Day Poptropicans! What better day to try out the new fireworks in the store than this?

A Well Deserved Vacation

With all the excitement over Skullduggery Island, Steamworks Island, and every new Poptropica update, not to mention my full time job as an agent, I decided it was definetely time for a vacation. Here are some pictures I took:



Here I am at the airport, all dressed up, excited, and ready to go.



Now I'm sight-seeing at Shark Tooth.



On the last day of my trip, I enjoy the gorgeous scenery of Counterfeit Island and learn about some interesting paintings inside the museum.

Steamworks Island

Finally! The name of the new island has been revealed. Check out the banner:






Although no official dates have yet been announced, the PCB has assured us the island is "coming soon".




NEW POSTS:



Celebrate with some powerful party favors.
Here are three items in the store to pump some power into your party.

The Atomic Power item will generate a lot of atomic energy for you and those who happen to be near you when you punch the power button (space bar.)






The fireworks are another new item in the store. Just launch them and watch the fireworks shower above. I recommend using them on top of a tall building on Spy Island, or at the Pirate Outpost. Just try not to light them too close to the gun powder on Pirate Outpost. We don't want to have to release an injured victim outfit in the store.







And last, don't forget those Silly Streams. Always fun for spraying at friends, and innocent mimes that are often too easy of a target.




END OF POSTS

Wow, looks like we have a lot to do in Poptropica now, so what are you waiting for? P.S. Glance up at the newest monthly story for July, up at the top of the page near the header.

Friday, July 2, 2010

I'm a little worried....

...About this!





Stay tuned for (later today) the name of the new island revealed for the first time on the internet!

Friday, June 25, 2010

I Am...VICTORIOUS!

Calm Starfish backed away slowly, her hands in the air. Captain Crawfish and his crew glared at her, grinning their evil pirate grins and flashing golden teeth. "And now-" Crawfish growled, but suddenly his ship began to shudder and quake, and a shower of cannonballs rained down behind them. Crawfish and Co. sprinted toward the back of the island. Calm, sore and exhausted from the two hours of digging for treasure, turned to run as well. Then the ship sunk to the murky depths of the Poptropican sea, and the Phoenix Warbird took its place. "I told you I would sink Captain Crawfish!" Tex* the cabin boy exclaimed. (*I named him that. There are no official names for any crew member) Calm and the rest of the crew lugged the treasure chest onto the deck, as Crawfish shouted, "You can't just leave me here!" Calm smiled as she and her new friends sailed off into the sunset towards Fort Ridley.

Captain Crawfish was never to be seen again, thanks to me, the greatest sailor who ever lived! (Well, you know, aside from the millions of other kids who have won this island, LOL) In this island, I learned the value of patience, trust, courage, and loyalty. It was one of the best islands yet.
And I am still afraid of pirates.

Friday, June 18, 2010

Ahoy!


While sailing the Poptropica seas in attempt to obtain 1,000,000 doubloons, I came across this strange island. I stopped, took a picture, and rested. Unfortunately, my shipmates and I were suddenly attacked by no other than Captain Crawfish! It was a miracle we made it out alive. Could this island possibly be Skullduggery Island itself?

Passin' the time 'till Skullduggery (only three days, baby, three days!)



I was cruisin' the islands, bored out of my mind, when I decided to head down to Myth to get myself something to eat. I couldn't decide between fish nuggets or honey cake, or water or punch. Nobody was on duty anyway. When Skull comes out, I figured, I won't have to stare at a plastic billboard and wonder, fish or honey? Soon my appetite was completely gone, so I started out and rethought my life.
*Applause*
ANNOUNCER: A TOUCHING PERFORMANCE BY MS. CALM STARFISH, WHO IS DEEPLY TROUBLED BY THE MEMBERSHIP CONTROVERSY AND BY THE WAIT FOR THE UPCOMING ISLAND. WHAT AN ASPIRING YOUNG ACTRESS SHE IS!
CALM: THANK YOU, THANK YOU. I'D PERSONALLY LIKE TO THANK THE ACADEMY AND-
ANNOUNCER: CALM, CALM, WAIT. YOU DIDN'T WIN AN AWARD.
CALM: *STARES*
ANNOUNCER: YOU DID VERY WELL, BUT THERE WAS NO AWARD TONIGHT. BUT- WAIT, WHERE DID SHE GO?
*CRASHING. SCREAMING. CALM RUNS OUT, SOBBING, AND THROWING RANDOM HEAVY ITEMS AT EVERYONE*
ANNOUNCER: *TO TV CAMERA* SOMEBODY CALL THE COPS! I MEAN, UH, THANKS FOR WATCHING!

Like my new template?

Well, vote! Direct your attention, please, to the new poll above the About Me column to the right and let me know how you feel. A new Template Designer feature was recently added to Blogger and it provides four new, totally awesome templates. You can design your own, with whatever colors or fonts you want to make your blog totally you. I put a little of me into the Post, because I don't run a personal blog. This one is called Picture Window. And PHB, I swear I am not copying you! (Check out the Help Blog's cool new blog coloring here)

Shh, it's a secret


"It's a secret to everybody.
Somebody has hidden a hypnotic new item somewhere in the world of Poptropica! It's totally free -- you just have to find it. Here's a screenshot of where the item is hiding:

Look familiar? Just click on that window pane to see what you find!

(Okay, here's a hint: It's in Early Poptropica!)"






Wow, it's so obvious where the secret item is. Probably this was just a little fun treasure hunt for younger players. LOL

EDIT: I just now found it!

A New Unofficial Outfit


"Creepy But Cool
Today when I visited the common room on 24 Carrot Island some of us saw this girl wearing a spooky yet stylish outfit. I wonder where she got it."






The newest PCB post. I must say, cute outfit!

Takin' Care of Business



So sorry guys, it has been so long since I have posted! I've been very busy. Before I get started with the four PCB posts I need to cover, I'd like to say thank you to Bleah Brian, for following the Post. Sorry, you aren't the first, *wink wink* PJ. When I read your About Me, I was moved by your love of Jesus Christ and how strongly you believe in him. Right on! Also, I know some of you guys have been waiting for the June monthly story. I'll get to that as soon as I can. Hopefully, tomorrow. Whew, now let's get to the posts. Here they are:



It's a cold day in Hades' Kingdom
Have you ever told a friend to "Stay Cool" when you leave school for the summer? Winter Blast gum will help you keep your summer promises. You can create your own summer snow blizzard. No one will be as cool as you.

For those of you that thought that we wouldn't get a new pop gum flavor until the Underworld freezes over, take a look in the store. This new frosty flavor will cool off those tongues that have been blowing lots of fire bubbles.



Sneak Peek of a Rusty Robot
I received special instruction to reveal to you this mysterious image. Be wise. With this small piece of information you could save the future of Poptropica. Your mission, for now, is to wait patiently until further notice.




And you thought green vegetables were scary...
Here's a sneak peek at some creepy beasts that might be appearing on a future Poptropica island. Which one do you think is scarier? Vote in our poll on the sidebar!



Mythology Surfers!
It's summertime, so grab your sunscreen, surfboards, and hit the beach!

These outfits are now available in the store, so choose your Mythology Surfer style: Zeus, Hades, or Poseidon.



So sorry no pics, that's what the link is for. I put pictures as often as I can to match the posts, but for some reason, it didn't work this time. Oh weeeeell.

Saturday, May 15, 2010

Dates announced

Grr, ya darn membership. Once again we have been shunned, and the members get it all! They only have five more days to wait-May 20-and we must suffer through nearly an entire month before playing the new island. WORST UPDATE EVER!* CREATORS ARE RUINING THE ONLINE GAME THAT USED TO BE SO FUN! UHHHGGG! Unless you haven't figured it out already, I am sobbing. BTW, the date for non-members to play is June 17.





*Taken from a recent poll on the PHB.

Best

Mythology Island: Best. Island. EVER!!!!! I finished it in one day! It was so incredibly awesome, I can't believe how awesome it was!
(Calm, Calm yourself)
(Don't tell me what to do. I'm trying to post!)
Anyway, I don't believe in Greek mythology, but I dig the Percy Jackson books-best series I've ever read-and I knew every single god there was. And I met Hercules and battled Zeus! Only too bad Herc got turned to stone, and the big guy turned out to be evil, but whatever. Also, there's proof that Skullduggery is fah real. Check out the Poptropica website and select the info link. Build your own ship? Assemble your own crew? "Biggest Poptropica quest yet"? Sounds pretty cool to me. Even though pirates are scary.

Wednesday, April 21, 2010

Pirates!!!!!!!!!!!!


OMG! New island? Check out this pic from the CB of some pirate ship. P.S. Pirates ate my cat. So they're not the nicest people in the world. Hahaha, JK! I don't have a cat. But anyway, pirates are mean. So you decide if you want to hang out with these guys:

ShiverAhoy! We've been sailin' the high seas for more Poptropica adventures! Arr...what be me timbers!
this new port?


And I noticed the name of this picture is Skull Duggery Island! Cool!

(But I'm still afraid of pirates)

New AstroKnights Costumes

After a few posts about the upcoming costumes, the Creators have announced the arrival of some of the costumes in the store! Awesome!

Friday, April 2, 2010

Monthly Story

I'm taking a page from Katie's book and adding a monthly story to the blog, themed of Poptropica of course. In place of the walkthroughs (which I have deleted) you'll soon find a list of stories. The oldest story will be removed every 10 months, so read while you can!

Grr...

Mythology island is availble!- to members. The date for the release of the island to non members is the 29th of April, so at least we don't have to wait as long as we did for RTV. Also check out the new Mythology island trailer from the Creators' Blog:

Friday, March 26, 2010

Sorry

I just published the Counterfeit walk through. Sadly, I don't have enough room to publish anymore walk throughs. :-O :,-( But if you do need any help with RTV or the upcoming Mythology island, please leave comments or email us.

Wednesday, March 24, 2010

Available to EVERYONE!

Finally!!! Reality TV island is available to everyone! All you unhappy non-members who are sulking because they don't have enough credits to buy the Minimizer, we will now see the light! Yaaaaay! Any loyal Poptropican will be breaking their hand right about now to get to the Poptropica URL! So many exclamation points!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Calm yourself, Calm. It's ironic, isn't it?


Update: Counterfeit and Reality TV island walkthroughs coming soon!

Friday, March 19, 2010

Mythology Island!




Poptropica.com has given us proof- Mythology island is NOT a myth! Check out the website. To the right of the Reality TV icon, there is a Mythology island icon! YESSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
IT IS TRUE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Island help

I have finally written some island walkthroughs and published them on the Post. Find them below the heading. I will add more walkthroughs each day as they take a long time to write. Reality TV will be the last to be added. Maps will be provided for your convenience.

Poptropicans who care, please read! (Donate a Poptropican)

Alright, I am creating a charity contest. Two free Poptropica accounts (they do not come with membership). One is a boy, the other is a girl. Below I will list their user names and other information. You are asking yourself, that's cool, but what up with the title? Well, thx for asking strange anonymous voice in my head. I'm not the only one who has to be charitable! You can donate a Poptropican too! Just email the Post with the user name and password of your account. It cannot have been used i.e., no island quests completed, no purchased credits, no gadgets or clothes from the store. It is a good way to lessen the stress of having to remember a bunch of info about your account. If you want any of these accounts, please email the Post to claim it. I will reply, giving you the password. Here are the user names:

FEMALE
AGE- 14 NAME- STRIPED KNUCKLE USER NAME- riptide600

MALE
AGE-8 NAME-CHILLY WHALE USER NAME- satyr600

If you haven't already noticed, both user names are related to the Percy Jackson books, which I am reading now and they are AWESOME!

The New Miniquest!

Yes! It is out! *Applause* ...For 250 credits. *Boos, throws soda cans at CS* Hey! I don't make the rules! I'm just as disappointed as the rest of you! Looks like I'll have to use another character of mine. :-( Hopefully I can finish it soon. It looks totally fun. That Dr. Hare-I'd be ready to defeat him any day! Wish me luck! *Silence. Cricket chirps* Fine! *Bursts into sobs* Forget the rest of YOU! When I save the Poptropica world again, you are all gonna PAY!

Calm Starfish just had a nervous breakdown. She will return as soon as her psychiatrist returns from a retreat in Finland. Thank you for reading.

Saturday, March 6, 2010

RPLM- March ( a little early, I just couldn't wait)



Please enjoy the following monologue between Calm Starfish and the host at the B.A.D Bistro.




Host: Good evening ma'am.

CS: Thank you, table for one please.

Host: Do you have a reservation?

CS: Uhh... no?

Host: Sorry. We're all full.

CS: Why didn't you tell me that before?!

Host: I figured you would have a reservation.

CS: Can I make a reservation now?

Host: Madam, that would defeat the purpose of the concept "reservation".

CS: *Fumes. Stalks away and slams the doors shut*

*Host looks back down at the reservation book, just as CS runs back through the doors trying to get past him*

Host: *Casually. As if this happened often* Security.

*Security drags CS out the door and locks it*

CS: You'll never get away with this! Never! I demand a table THIS INSTANT!

Host: Do you have a-

CS: Oh, for crying out loud!

*CS runs away. Jumps on her blimp, travels to Big Nate island, and pigs out on crab legs instead*

THE END

A New Microquest!


Oh yeah! Another quest like the Haunted House- except this time there is a villain involved! And best of all? Apparently that very villain seems to be... Dr. Hare! Time to foil you yet again! Bwaa haa! *Clears throat* Well, now that we've got that out of the way, here's a post from the Creators' Blog:

New Micro-Quest coming soon to the Poptropica Store!
It seems that a certain character is up to his old tricks again. I can't say I wish that he would stop it, because stopping him will be so much fun! Keep ever watchful, because this new micro-quest will be coming soon to the Poptropica store!


And above, a pic from the CB (that goes with that post) that some of you sharper folks may have already noticed. LOL

Post Updates

We have several orders of business here, so let's get started! First off, I've just added a new blog to the blog roll. It's name is Poppy Seeds and it is run by Popular Joker. Check it out sometime. Next, there is a new poll Are you up for Poptropica Houses?. Check that out also! Lastly, check the Post on the 5th of every month. That is the date in which I will post the RPLM!

Monday, March 1, 2010

New Followers

I've added a new feature to the Post: Followers. If you have an account on Google, Yahoo!, or Twitter, or you can become a follower! Thanks to a fellow blogger who has suggested to me to add Followers. Scroll through the comments of the latest posts and you'll be sure to find her (comments)!

Poptropica Houses???

Could it be??? After scrolling through a new PHB post, I found a part about new CB polls. The polls are:

How would you like to connect with other people who are playing Poptropica?
1.I'd like to be able to make friends with people I meet in Poptropica, and see what they're up to from day to day.
2.I'm satisfied with playing multiplayer games in the common rooms, and using the Multiverse with real-life friends.
3.I don't care what other people are doing. I like to play by myself.

Then:


What would you think about having your own room with your own furniture and other stuff?
1.I'd like that a lot!
2.I'd try it out.
3.I don't want a room.

One more:

How public or private would you want your room to be?
1.Open to the public! I'd want everyone to see it.
2.Somewhat public. I'd just want my friends to see it.
3.Somewhat private. I'd want to be able to invite people.
4.Totally private. No one but me allowed.

Wow! Are you crazy kids thinking what I'm thinking? Looks like the Creators are just getting their players' opinions before designing a new Poptropica project! Sweetness! But as I said before in a comment on the PHB:
YES! I have waited for so long for Poptropica to have houses! Then Poptropica would be complete! (Except of course, if you have to buy furniture with credits or real money) I might even forgive them for *grr* membership…
Well, that's about it so, I'm gonna go have a sandwich.(JK)

The Cave

Help me

I don't know who allowed access to this cave but this area is obviously unstable and they didn't even offer me a hardhat. Besides, what is that weird, green thing in the water?




Master Mime


That was a new CBP, clearly. ;-)

The Midas Touch

Has it always been your dream to turn things to gold just by touching them? If so, read on. If not, read on. If you have recently purchased a unicorn-dragon and have decided it was not as cuddly as you had imagined (i.e. it ate your sister),and you would like to return it, read on.

Sorry, wrong blog. Anyways, the Midas Touch has entered the building! Go to Poptropica and buy it!

RPLM- February



Whazzup, big guy? How's the weather up there? LOL- I should know, I'm up in the clouds! xD

New Video


-Creators' Blog
Awesome video creators! The music, especially. Once again, it sure looks like there will be several mini games on RTV!

Anyone for Shuffle boarding?


Shuffleboard
Still stuck on this island, I found some people playing a game with small sliding pucks. I don't think the mime is going to win this one.



I don't really get shuffle boarding. Seriously. No offense at all to the awesome Creators, but all you do is push a puck around on concrete with a stick. I could never play it. *Shrugs* Anyway, it looks like Reality TV will contain a bunch of little mini games. Cool! *Claps twice and disappears into a cloud of pink smoke*

More info on Membership


More on Membership
We will be adding membership to Poptropica really soon! Membership will let you use ALL Costumes and Gold Cards in the Poptropica Store for the duration of your membership. And yes, members also get exclusive EARLY ISLAND ACCESS to play our newest islands weeks before the rest of the world!! This is key, since we are planning on releasing some pretty sweet islands this year!

Remember, even if you don't have credits or membership, the Poptropica Islands are always 100% FREE for all to play!


There's not much to say on that. It pretty much explains everything!! ;-P

Poptropica... Membership???

*Listen, guys. There's this super cool video on the Creators' Blog. I promise, I COULD have copied it to the Post, but I wasn't sure if I should because (a) I don't have permission to use it and (b) it may mess something up on my computer. So do me a favor- head over to the CB and watch the video real fast before reading this post. Done? Okay, read on.*

Whoa! That really makes you think, doesn't it?

1. Will the membership cost money?
2. Do you really get access to all Poptropica costumes?
3. Will you have access to the gadgets as well?
4. Would you be granted early access to the upcoming islands?

OMG, my head is spinning! (Not literally) LOL. Could this be another big step for Poptropica closer to becoming a more well-known site? I hope so! And speaking of new islands, there is proof in the video that the new island will in fact be Reality TV Island! Yessssssss! :-D


P.S. I apologize once again for not showing the video. When I get more info on this I will let you know.

Random Poptropica Location of the Month


A.K.A RPLM. I have decided to create a little monthly feature for the Post. It's called... well, you know. The random location featured in the fine month of January is - The Ghouls' Gala! Congrats ghouls! By the way, what is up with that dude behind the witch? Just standing there, staring at us. Creepy. Not to mention rude.


P.S. I will be taking suggestions for the RPLM. Although then it would not be so random. *Shrugs. Takes bite of sandwich and slowly wraps up this post...*

Football, Minotaur, Avatar Studio...

Here are two new CBPs (for those of you who are thinking, huh?, CBPs means Creators Blog Posts. Hold on to that for further references):

Meet the Minotaur!
Wonder what they charge for admission?
HADES

Are you ready for some football!?
It's almost time for the big game! You can represent your team with a brand new American Football Player costume!

Knock, knock. Who's there? The new Counterfeit Island wallpaper!

OK, tell me that was the lamest post title ever. But it fits our topics conveniently together, if not in the most clever way :-). First off, there is this Creators' Blog post:

Knock, knock!
Who's there?
Watson
Watson who?
Watson TV today?


Tee hee. And then there's this one:

Counterfeit Island Wallpaper

Fish-shaped fountain? New characters?

Well, look at that! Proof that Reality TV (or, it could be something else) is indeed coming out! Yay!!! Here are two recent posts from the Creators' Blog:


Fish, my favorite kind of fountain...
You'll never believe what I saw on my adventures recently. A real fountain in the shape of a fish! Have I ever told you how much I love fish? I think I will like this new island a lot!


And...



New Characters, New Island!
Can you guess what this new island will be about?



Once again, I must ask you to visit the Creators' Blog if you would like to view the pics that come with the posts. I'll ask that for every time I can't display a picture from that blog.

I just realized that my post "Just Hangin' with Counterfeit mimes", was our 50th blog post! Of course, this post is the 51st. But anyway, HAPPY 50TH POST!!!!

Just hangin' with Counterfeit mimes...


Dee d' dee dee dee. I guess this is how mimes spend their free time- displaying their emotions to the world :D.

BTW, thanks to the Poptropica Help Blog for instructions on how to take screenshots. I was scrolling through some comments one day and saw where Hijuyo a.k.a. Scary Tomato a.k.a. ST explained how to take and display screenshots. Thanks again PHB!

New Creators' Blog Post

Getting Boar-ed?
As a hermit I try to avoid meeting people but sometimes it's hard to find a place to be alone. When I reached this island in the middle of the ocean, I figured I was the only person around for miles. I soon realized this place is full of some of the craziest people I've ever seen! Why would anyone run around with a jar of water on their head? It seems dangerous, especially when there's an angry boar out to get you. I'm going to monitor the situation and see what I can find out.


-Creators' Blog

That was a post by Hazmat Hermit. It comes with a picture, which I didn't copy because I don't know how and you'll have to just view it at the Creators' Blog. Sorry for any inconvenience.
