Hey guys! Slippery here.
It looks like we’re having a Mystery of the Map Island soon! The Daily Pop sneak peeks from the past month or so have clearly been referencing scenes from the MotM graphic novel. Check it out. 😀
One Warm Line: Toward the beaux fort, see?
Embers: This fire burns, always.
High on the Hog: Eat, drink, and be merry.
GPS: You’ll never get lost, unless you already are.
Wildlife: Get in touch with your wild side.
Drydock: This one’s gone to ground.
Pen Pals: Rage, rage against the cage.
Whitewater: We’re looking at a raft of problems now.
Leftovers: Plenty more where that came from.
Atlas Shrugged: Now we’ve really gone off the map.
Mast Head: Don’t cross the streams.
Uncharted: This settlement is off the map.
Grotto Preminger: We’ll be direct: this common room is a star.
Fishbone: One of the greatest bands of all time.
Game of Thrones: Iron would be preferable to old splintered wood.
Basket Case: What a deflating voyage.
Run Aground: Whatever floats your boat.
Ascend: You will have seen the mountaintop.
Upsot: The hull, you say.
Downfall: Don’t go chasing these things.
Collapse: Jared Diamond might have something to say about this.
Yup, the graphic novel will be coming to life on Poptropica. The sneak peeks are the same as the novel — the deflated hot air balloon (which they rode on), the map, the broken viking ship, and even Oliver, Mya and Jorge inside the cage! Another thing to point out, looks like the common room in this island is called “Viking’s Grotto”. For what I can tell, it looks like we’re going to save the gang from the Vikings and stop Octavian from his diabolical plans.
If you’re still not convinced, try typing mysteryofthemapisland.com – and it will direct to Poptropica! According to a Whois search, the domain has been owned by Poptropica since February 25, 2015.
There’s been no official announcement yet, but it’s looking very likely. If you want to see more recent MotM sneak peeks, check out the PHB’s Daily Pop Sneak Peek Archive!

Looks like the island is going to be exciting, and I can’t wait for its confirmation! Are you excited as I am? What do you think of it? Leave your comment below! 🙂
