Hey Poptropicans! The Creators have posted their top ten entries for the Dream Homes portion of the Land challenge, and I’m honored to be listed among them! ❤ In fact, you can check out the PHB post below for an in-depth tour of my “slanted fish” Land.
However, I don’t want to detract from the glory of the other picks (and there are some pretty great ones!), so here’s a gallery of the chosen Lands, along with their witty captions (click to enlarge):
Great entries, guys! And don’t feel bad if yours isn’t up there: the Creators received thousands of entries over the weekend, and they promise that they looked at every submission. The next/current theme until Oct 23 is Village, and the Creators will be announcing their favorites on Friday.
By the way, for more details on making the most of this sandbox feature, do check out the PHB’s Poptropica Labs (Land) Guide, now with a detailed chart for what you unlock at each level and how much Poptanium you need to get there! 😀
There’s also a poll on the sidebar of the Creators’ Blog asking “Who created your favorite Dream Home?” and so far, Zany Crown and her treehouse is taking the lead! These are the results:
- Cool Sponge (7%)
- Friendly Fish (that’s me!) (12%)
- Golden Lightning (5%)
- Golden Lobster (7%)
- Hyper Fire (6%)
- Mad Comet (10%)
- Red Sun (4%)
- Small Tiger (11%)
- Striped Fox (2%)
- Zany Crown (31%)
Also, is it just me, or are the Creators deliberately avoiding words like “contest” and “winners” for this “challenge”? Not that I have a problem with it; just an observation. What do you think? 😛
Another behind-the-scenes sketch has popped up on Poptropica’s Twitter, and this one’s an early character sketch for the unreleased Arabian Nights, Ep. 3! From the looks of it, it’s a female genie – perhaps the one from the Sultan’s lamp? We’ll have to wait and see.
Speaking of Arabian Nights Island, friendly reminder that Episode 1 will be available to all this Thursday, October 23 (at least according to one of Poptropica’s tweets)! And while we’re talking about upcoming releases, Poptropica has also tweeted what’s to come for ads:
Anyway, that’s all for now! Keep on popping on, Poptropicans. 😀
