Back Lot Island, Sneak Peeks

It disappeared as quickly as it came. (Back Lot Island!)

If you’d go to the Creator’s Blog right now, you’d see a post that looks like this:

Picture yourself on Poptropica

When you travel somewhere, the best way to remember your trip is by taking photos. The same is true when you journey into Poptropica.

Ever since we launched the Photo Album feature last year as part of Poptropica Friends, we’ve been adding four new photos to every Island. At this point, there are 133 unique photos that you can collect, simply by playing through each Island!

But Poptropica photos are even better than the ones you take on vacation, because you can actually costumize off of what you were wearing in each one. The same is true when you look through your friends’ photo albums!

If you haven’t opened your photo album for awhile, take look — you might be surprised at what you find.

However… that wasn’t the post it was at first.


When this was first posted, it was talking about something else… here’s what it said:

Sneaky. Very Sneaky.

“What’s the next Island going to be?” That’s the question we hear over and over when we talk to our fans. Well, if you want a hint as to what we’re working on next, the best thing to do is visit Sneak Peeks in the Daily Pop!

In Sneak Peeks, we post concept art and other work in development for unannounced Islands. If you’d been checking Sneak Peeks through January and February and seen images like the one posted above, you probably would have surmised that we were working on a movie-themed Island… long before we announced Back Lot Island!

Sneak Peeks is updated five days a week. All you need to do to check it out is to visit Poptropica and click on the “Daily Pop” icon to see the latest.

We’re usually working on more than one Island at a time. Can you guess what we might be working on next?

If you peruse that post a little bit, you’ll see this set of words: Back Lot Island.ย  I tested to see if the Creators bought that domain name and sure enough….

They did. So I guess we have our island name now! You think you could let that one disappear like you did with Cryptids Island, didn’t ya? Well, you were caught. ๐Ÿ˜›

BT out!

      1. Yep,I read this blog at that time but didn’t comment,but in one of the posts they said that insidersnetwork (aka Thinknoodles) accidentally discovered the new island’s name.Also,the return of Binary Bard poster and the initials SVI.One commenter said that could stand for Super Villain island!

  1. Very sneaky indeed Creators… ๐Ÿ˜‰

    How much you wanna bet they were waiting to see if we caught them?

      1. How about they give all of the big-time Poptorpica blogs the right to help them decide which islands either get thrown away, or get built on the map?

  2. The “Sneaky” post sounds as if whoever wrote it thought that the name Back Lot Island had already been announced, so maybe that’s why it was taken down – they didn’t intend to let us know yet, but one of the Creators (accidentally?) slipped it out there. Great catch, BT! ๐Ÿ˜€

    Also, I noticed that the image they used for the “Picture yourself” post is of Lone Heart’s photo album! Lone Heart (who also goes by Lucas or Elphangor on the PHB and you can add him as jaramillo14) was previously featured on the Creators’ Blog for collecting all the photos. Congrats!

    1. Nah.

      I looked at the March posts and it said on the post for Friday March 15:

      Announcing the next Poptropica Island!

      We’re excited to announce the next Poptropica Island. The cameras are about to roll on…

      (Then there’s a picture of the Back Lot Island logo)

      Back Lot Island!

      The greatest filmmaker of all time has come out of hiding, and he needs your help to make his masterpiece. But will you be producing the next big blockbuster, or is there trouble in tinseltown? From the first frame to the final cut, it’s lights, camera, action!

      For more information, visit our Back Lot Island info page. And keep checking right here for the latest news about Back Lot Island!

      And then, the post intitled Sneaky. Very Sneaky. , was uploaded on Thursday 21st March.

      So HA!

What's popping, Poptropicans?
