Greetings Hawk-tropicans! This is Giant Hawk speaking, and today, I have a very important update to give you all.
So… January 5 is closely approaching us. As such, the GHA should be on the brink of its release! However, it is not anymore.
Now, before anyone panics, I need to clarify. Over the past week or so, HP and I have been working on the stories of my written series, the GHA, and his game series, Orb Legend. Unfortunately, we ran across some major continuity errors. We both agree that they cannot go unchecked. In order to fix these mistakes, some major rewrites will be made to the GHA.
This will make it impossible for me to make my January 5th deadline, as I had hoped. It really breaks my heart to postpone the series like this, but it must be done if I want to improve the coherency of my series.
Now, considering that school will be starting back up for me again this week, I’m not sure how long the rewriting process will take. At most, I’m hoping for release sometime this summer.
But honestly, I can’t just leave this here. Those of you who have been waiting for this series cannot leave disappointed! Hence, I am planning on releasing a GHA short which will be entitled ‘An Afternoon at Queequegs’.
It will not reveal much, continuity-wise, but it will focus on Giant Hawk and his closest friend, Nice Seal, as they hang out at a local coffee shop the day before the starting point of the series and it will released later this week!
In other GHA related news, I wish to clarify how exactly the series will be posted. The original idea would be, supposedly, to put them in actual blog posts on the front page of the Poptropica Help Blog. However, that might clutter said front page and confuse newcomers to the PHB.
The plan instead is to give the GHA a section in the toolbar to the top of the Poptropica Help Blog. This will allow the series to publish similarly to how we post our island walkthroughs, also making the series easier to organize.
As it so happens, it is time to move on to a completely different topic!
Speaking of happening, the New Years may have already happened, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t still highlight the new year!
Case in point, the Poptropica Creators released a super cool graphic in honor of the switch over to 2016. Check it out:
What a way to celebrate the end of 2015 and the beginning of 2016! Happy New Year, and may all your acquaintance be forgot and never be brought to mind.
Until next time…
