Our most recent staff member to join the PHB Team, Grumpy Wolf, has been added to the Poptropica Help Blog’s header! Thank you for the wonderful change, Codien!
The Astro-Knights Island official description has been changed for the 3rd time! It now says:
Launch thyself into a new adventure on Poptropica! The Princess hath been kidnapped and taken to the far reaches of space. Thou must assemble a space vessel and fly among the stars on an intergalactic quest to rescue her and save the kingdom of Arturus.
Taken from http://www.poptropica.com/astro_island.html.
Also, the image of Binary Bard has changed into a man in some warrior’s armor. The brown body is possibly made of bronze, and the helmet and spear could be silver, iron, or steel.
We now know that the kingdom the royal family lives in is called Arturus, which might be related to the Arthurian legends, as Cheerful Claw said. It looks like we’re going to save the Princess again, instead of the King and Queen.
Reality TV Island finally has an official description, rather than the unofficial description from the Creators’ Blog! Here’s what it reads:
Have you ever wanted to be the star of a reality TV show? Well, now’s your chance! Duke it out with your fellow contestants and avoid elimination to win the show’s grand prize and become a hero to your home town.
Taken from http://poptropica.com/reality_island.html.
The picture showing a campfire at night with trees and a hut surrounding it may possible the “home town” that the description is talking about. It’s also related to this sneak peek we had earlier!
Also, the hippie guy on the right resembles the one shown in this sneak peek. He’s got curly dark brown hair with some strands sticking out, a tan-colored headband, and a big smile. Mr. Hippie is also wearing a peace symbol necklace, a rainbow-colored shirt, and tan muddy pants. Do you think he’s one of the contestants from another town or is he a citizen of your home town? We’ll have to wait and see!
The island banners, or signs, on the homepage of Poptropica.com have also changed!
- The “Now Online: Big Nate Island” banner has been removed. Just as well too – it was already released so many months ago!
- The “Coming this spring: AstroKnights” banner has been changed to “Coming soon: AstroKnights”. Yippee!
- There is a new banner that says “Coming later this year: Reality TV Island”. This means that we will have RTV Island to look forward to before the year 2009 comes to an end!
There’s also a new poll on the Poptropica Creators’ Blog about AK Island: How excited are you for Astro-Knights to come out? Here are the results as of today!
