Happy new year, Poptropicans! Hope you’re enjoying the fresh new PHB header with my Poptropican’s new look (plus, I drew a new avatar for it too)! 😀
Anyway, 2015 has only just begun, but already there’s Poptropica news to talk about. After a year of episodic islands, it looks like Poptropica will be reverting back to stand-alone full islands after wrapping up PoptropiCon and Arabian Nights around March! (thanks to Samwow5 for the pic)
Speaking of Arabian Nights, the Creators originally tweeted that Episode 2: Lair of Thieves (see our preview here) would be coming out to non-members on Dec 30th (that’s if you ignore their even earlier tweet), but it turns out they’ve rescheduled the public launch to Jan 8th:
Meanwhile, members can look forward to Episode 3 of Arabian Nights (title yet to be determined) around Feb 26th. That is, if Zeus here can still be trusted. 😉
And lastly, perhaps as a follow-up to her totally snazzy PHB tribute, Poptropica Creator Dr. Lange also drew a little something for the team at Poptropican Awesomeness, where two of our PHB authors (Blake & Slippery Raptor) also blog. Check it out:
Anyway, that’s all for now! Poptropica’s had a great 2014, which you can read all about in Slippery’s 2014 rewind post here. Hope everyone’s having a wonderful new year so far! 😀

Thanks for the shoutout! And I’m glad the Creators understood (or at least saw) how troubling episodic islands were for is.

I spent xmas break in tennesee I went to dollywood thursday and got a cinder in my eye ( keeps rubbing finger on eye hoping cinder will come out ) , celebrated new years eve at this place called the island ( it is not a real island ) , when I rode a trolley my mom got a text from my phone but I did not have it so we thought it was stolen and when we got back to the hotel I checked the car and it was in there and they cancelled the plan before I found it so now I have a deactivated phone , whenever my mom got the texts she kept texting the man who she thought stole my phone and he kept saying it was his and he was right , so I had a crazy vacation
Hey, Fishy! You drew your new Pop character’s look? Nice! 🙂
Also, happy new year! 😀
http://poptropicaworld.com/poptropica-events-comics-island/ Hey Fishy, do u think the creators are playing tricks on us? Like, they told me PoptropiCon Ep.3 is coming out in late February. And they also told me Arabian Nights Ep.3 is coming out on February 26…
I don’t think they’d make it up – more like they’ll set release dates only to not be ready when the day comes and reschedule, as the past has shown. 😛
You know Fishy, the creator always reply to my twitter and say good stuff also.
I wonder if they’d be willing to convert the episodic islands into full islands later on…
That’s a cool idea – some players would definitely prefer that. 🙂
Anyways, what happened to the Popcorn?
slantedfish: We ended it at the end of last year.
