Hey Poptropicans! For those of you who’ve been holding off on playing Mission Atlantis: Ep. 3 (Out of the Blue) on iOS because it cost money, there’s good news: it’s now free! Just update your Poptropica app on iOS and you’re good to go. If you need help, check out our Mission Atlantis Island Guide!
We also have some official intel stating that Arabian Nights: Ep. 1 and PoptropiCon: Ep. 2 will be coming to the Android app this Wednesday (Dec 10), so there’s that for all you Androiders!
Speaking of the Poptropica app, remember that you can customize your character at the New You shop in the Home scene. There’s not a whole lot right now compared to the online version, but the Creators have tweeted that they’ll be adding more in 2015.
In fact, a number of recent tweets hint at what’s to come next year: for one thing, as mentioned earlier, full (albeit fewer) islands will be returning around late January – “full” meaning no episodes!
Here’s a tweet listing some other projects in the works for 2015: Land (for everybody), connecting the Poptropica app with our online accounts (but not until late 2015), a Kindle app, adding common rooms and multi-player functionality to the app, Timmy Failure Island (another sponsored island!)…
…and last but not least, the graphic novel based on the Poptropica comics. In fact, the Creators have shamelessly tweeted yet another page of it, which you can see below:
Regarding The POPCORN magazine, the December issue will be out sometime this week (sorry for the delay!). Now’s your last chance to send something in – see our Magazines page for more details! Due to time constraints, this will be the end of the series (at least for now), but it’s had a good run. 🙂
Anyway, that’s all the updates (app-dates?) for now – stay popping, Poptropicans. 😛
