24 Carrot Island, Membership, New Islands, Virus Hunter Island, Website Updates

The pandemic panic is coming….

…this week! Hey guys, BT here with a piece of breaking news! In a rare weekend post from Creator Captain Crawfish, he announces the following:

We know it’s been a long time coming. We know you’ve been patient. We know we’ve promised a lot. And we’ve been working around the clock to make sure we can deliver on those promises. Now, we’re very happy to say that Early Access to Virus Hunter Island will be available this week!

It’s the biggest, wildest Poptropica adventure we’ve ever made. It’s got a bigger screen, music and sound effects, and an epic storyline. We’re very proud of Virus Hunter Island, and we can’t wait until you can play it.

We’ll let you know exactly when Virus Hunter Island is available. Keep checking back!

A lot of Poptropicans are probably sighing in relief right now. We waited four months for Virus Hunter Island, and it’s finally coming out this week! Although he doesn’t say exactly when next week, it is likely that it’ll release on Thursday, August 29, considering Poptropica tends to release their islands on a Thursday.

Anyways, the map has changed up a bit, with two of the island icons colored: Virus Hunter and 24 Carrot Island. This indicates that these islands have been affected by Poptropica’s new larger screen and soundtrack format… which means 24 Carrot Island’s new format is now available for the public! Members can now play as their own Poptropicans with the new format!

(UPDATE: The improved 24 Carrot Island is now open to everyone!)

Do you think Virus Hunter Island will be worth the wait? I hope so.

BT out!

  1. Oh my goodness this is so exciting! I feel ya’ SD I’m going on a school trip this whole week but at least it will be out when I get back!

      1. Yes it is! Haven’t you seen the latest post on the creator’s blog?

  2. I am stuck on 24 Carrot Island. My blimp won’t work!! 😦 I tried to use the PopTransport but I didn’t see anything pop up that I could use. (No pun intended.) I blame Strange Cat. He told me to enter 24 Carrot and I got stuck there. >:-(

    1. Press the home button,then press the store button,then click the inventory bag thingy on the top right corner,then go to HH.Exit.Viola,you’re out! And please stop accusing me like that,it hurts my heart a bit!

      1. Hurts your heart a bit? Huh. Never heard that before. Eh, I bet you were stuck for a while too. Sorry. πŸ˜‰

  3. The last time I was on 24 Carrot Island, the format still looked the same to me. I even replayed the island just so I could find what was different about the island since the island icon was colored. I don’t know, maybe it’s just me.

    I am excited about Virus Hunter! I’ll probably still have time to try out the island promo(if they have it) because I don’t start school for another 2 weeks! πŸ˜€

    1. About the 24 Carrot thing, I edited the post. Note to self: next time, test something out before you assume things.

    1. Yes. Right now, the new features are still kind of… glitchy. The characters aren’t running smoothly at all, and I was stuck in 24 Carrot for a couple of days. Luckily, if I hadn’t emailed the Creators, I wouldn’t have logged in to find myself in Shark Tooth Island! So I bet sound will be released to Non Members once Virus Hunter comes out to everyone.

      1. You’re right I’ve been stuck on 24 Carrot for days, and I was just playing poptropica, I used the beverage/hair effect, now my poptropican’s eyes are stuck closed, and my mouth is shaped like an O.>:( (The mouth should be easy to fix, but I’m probably gonna need some advice about the eyes.) PLEASE HELP, ANYONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      2. Apparently nothing about my poptropican is fixed, and whenever I leave 24 Carrot I don’t have membership, I don’t have a saved game, I don’t have any friends, I don’t have any items, and I don’t have any credits. This sucks. 😦

      1. I thought it’d be a good idea too. Maybe if the Creator’s use the champ map on the NEXT island, we might do this contest?? Courtesy of Young Flame of course.

  4. No offence guys,but I don’t want VHI to be like BETA Carrotene I mean,imagine it being glitchy,and if something happens to it and you reload,you have to start the whole island again.And there’s something fishy about navigation too…

    1. I know what you mean. FMs blog won’t be able to keep up without comments. That was what kept me visiting that site in the first place.

      1. Me too! Ever since the comments have been turned off, I haven’t been going there lately. Without the comments, I felt like the site was… dead to me. :/ I know that’s a horrible thing to say, but the primary reason I kept on going there were the comments. I always looked forward to going because of that. There’s were always so much buzz going on. I hope FM turns on the comments again soon. 😦

      2. I know, I only went there for the comments. But that was the last they made for like 2-3 weeks. ( I lost track of time :p)

  5. five months (more or less.) of a wait? flippin’ right, this island had better be good.

    hello? anyone i know here?

  6. hi juyo will you please email me, obviously youll be able to see my email I have a ‘proposal’ kind of, wondering if I can apply for part of the team, im very occasionally finding bugs and workarounds in Poptropica, more quite frequently and lately im also a little older and am about to graduate high school, meaning im more mature and can handle a little work. im sure I can bring quite a bit of stuff to the table persay ive been on this blog since about 2010, I used to be all over the chat but then it turned to straight drama around 2011-12 ish. thanks!

  7. I think this island might be hard with the fact that they worked on it for almost five months. But that might be because of the sound and stuff.

  8. GUYS GUYS GUYS GUYS. I have an annoucement. I don’t know if this will make it in time or not, but whatever.

    Anyway, Virus Hunter is now avaliable to members for Early Access! I think. The non-members, such as I, get a early demo! I’m playing it as we speak, or comment, whatever.

  9. Before you go in there, you have to go in the video rental place and show the guy your ID badge and he’ll let you in the staff only place, from there you have to do what the people tell you. Eventually, you will need to go to the falafel place and talk to the guy and then he’ll leave the gate open for you to go into the globoclem place πŸ™‚ hope it helped

    1. You go to the knaves something place, look in the rubbish bin and it’ll give you a clue, then you talk to the falafel guy

  10. That’s the thing. About the new 24 Carrot Island. I have to redo the island again and I’m stuck with the rabbit ears. It won’t let me put it on! And yes, I already restarted the island, but it still won’t let me put it on. I go through the trapdoor every time! Anybody knows what’s going on?

  11. My poptropican’s eyes are stuck closed as well, and I don’t have access to my costumes in Virus Hunter. I really hope they don’t decide to change it to this because it’s harder to get to things and it takes longer to do things (things that you often need, such as your inventory). I don’t think I’m going to end up continuing to play if they maintain this format.

What's popping, Poptropicans?
