The rumored convention island is a reality! Let me explain. 😛
While doing my creepy daily check on Poptropica’s servers, I found a strange title on the list of game files titled “con1”. I checked it out, and sure enough it was what I thought — the rumored convention island. In fact, it has the same name as what we’ve been calling it, PoptropiCon Island! 😀 After toying around a bit with the file names, I finally got into the island and found these amazing scenes.
Check out Pepe’s Pizza Puffs, which was also posted as a sneak peek on the Creators’ Blog along with a look at a pizza puff costume – could that be a bonus costume for members?
Also, con1 does mean that there will be other cons, thus meaning that this will be an episodic adventure. 🙄 I don’t know about you, but I don’t like having to wait a whole month before I can continue my adventure. I honestly like a story that you can play through and complete in one sitting.
From the looks of it, your task for episode 1 of PoptropiCon Island will be to get inside the convention center, considering that all the locations in it are outside.
Now, my thoughts: I am so glad that this is happening. If you saw the pictures in the gallery above, then you definitely know why I am so excited. The attention to detail is pretty awesome, and the premise is just as neat.
Anyway, I hope you enjoyed this unreleased tid bit. More info about the island is coming soon. 😀
