Sound: Poptropica’s Biggest Makeover?

Hey guys, BT here. Now, I’m just shocked at this video. Shocked in a happy way. VERY SHOCKED.

Wow, I did NOT see that coming. Whew. Full sound and musicย in Poptropica after 5 and a half years… and with a full screen at that!

This isย just stunning. So far, 24 Carrot Island’s redux seems epic (I’m loving the music and the effects of the crows and the crowbar and everything.)

I think this was the reason why we haven’t heard much of Virus Hunter Island in a while. I’m super pumped about this.ย This is a really big piece of news here, peeps.

BT out!

Hey everyone, Slanted Fish here:

The addition of music and more sound effects in Poptropica sounds great to me as well! It’s definitely been a long time coming. Anyway, here’s a bit more ear-related news for you: when Dr. Hare’s Lair reaches 7,500 supporters on LEGO CUUSOO, we’ll be getting this Dr. Hare Ears Power!

Now we’ll definitely be well-equipped for when this big sound update comes out! Notice the new menu icon in the video as well! Plus, as Silver Wolf pointed out in the comments, the trusty blue/green arrow has been replaced with the common room cursor! The general consensus in the comments for that is… that’s a bad move. That cursor’s pretty annoying, and jumping around with it just isn’t the same.

Well, I’m looking forward to hearing more about what’s up in Poptropica. (Pun intended, of course!)

    1. You’re right- I didn’t see that! Well, that would take some getting used to…

      1. I mean, the sound and music is pure epic awesomesauce, but the cursor… it’s gonna take some time to get used to like I said.

      2. I agree. I like the normal one better. The one in the common rooms are weird. I don’t like them.

      3. Yeah I like the arrows better. All the new stuff will take a lot of getting used to.

  1. Wow, they’re finally adding sound everywhere (not just in occasional spots, like the rain of Vampire’s Curse). It’s been long overdue, but this should be pretty awesome! (Although maybe there should be an option to turn off sound, for those who don’t like it.) Also, hope you don’t mind that I invaded the post a little. ๐Ÿ˜›

    1. There is. It’s called a mute button. You can just turn down or turn it up. Or press the button to mute or un-mute it. LOL Just messin’ with ya!

      1. There’s that, but then you wouldn’t be able to hear other sound from your computer as well, which wouldn’t work out well if you wanted to play music or something on it while playing Poptropica with sound.

      2. I think there’s likely going to be a setting, like in video games, to turn down music and sound volume seperately, so you wouldn’t have to listen to the sound but you can still listen to the music.

    2. I knew that people would want that, like listening to Pandora or something, that’s why I said I was just messing with you. Hopefully there is that feature, where you could adjust music and sound affects seperatley, ’cause that creaking and splashing is gonna get on my nerves.

    1. I really hope that’s just a testing cursor. If they are going to be changing cursors, change the one in the Common Room to the regular one, or else I will not play Poptropica until they switch it back. Just kidding. I cannot miss out on this amazing sound and sound effects. The music just fits so well with 24 Carrot! Spooky and mysterious, and maybe cheerful and upbeat when you complete it, and maybe in the house like an old radio playing.

  2. Hey guys, HPuterpop here,
    Hmmm, I am very distressed about the cursor thing. I HATE the multiplayer room’s cursor. Anywho, another thought came to my mind while writing this. What about voices? Will the be annoying as ykw like Epic Mickey? Or will they be voiced by their own creators. And what about multiplayer rooms, and your own player?!

    P.S. I got a new prof pic, hope you like ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. BTW guys,

    What if this new thing is like a game that you play on a cd-rom (yes, I know, I sound outdated) or a game like don’t starve?

  4. Hey, guys, yesterday I commented saying when will we be hearing of virus hunter?!??!! When!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    1. Maybe next month. Just a guess, but mixing the sound business into the factor, I’d say August.

  5. Oh and they used the new menu item bt. And P.S. my usernames are HamishPomPom (my best friend) caoimhecrazy (my other best friend), Awesome80884 ( me!), and Awesome80885 (me again!!) Plz friend me!!!!! And yes, I am talking to you bt and Slanted Fish. P.P.S, which one of you is hi.Juyo??? And P.P.P.S, do you think this is the longest comment ever ?????????????????????????????????????????????????!!!!!!???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????!!!

    1. Thanks, my user is puterpop, I’ve been on here for quite a while, so I might have replied under the name of Puterpop to you. and I think someone has put a little too much sugar on their cereal lol…

      1. Hey BT, where did all the cheesy puns go? Oh wait, they just changed focus!

  6. This stuff looks really interesting, what with the sounds and music. I haven’t been on Poptropica yet, I was at the orthodontist getting my braces. ๐Ÿ˜€

      1. I knew it,I KNOW you from somewhere!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! โ— โ—

      1. Yeah. Sometimes I just want to jump up in the Common Rooms, and I wind up continually jumping around. I hate that cursor.

What's popping, Poptropicans?
