Hoi, I’m Koi.
Poptropica has a recurring sci-fi theme. The only two things that connect them all usually is space and… the symbols. Why I deemed it necessary to say usually is because Zomberry was science fiction, but really had nothing to do with this in the grand scheme of things. Let’s begin!
The first time we encountered these alien scribblings was while we were on a scavenger hunt all through Africa! If you don’t know what I’m talking about, they were imbedded into the Nabooti jewels. When they were all put into the correct order into a wooden totem, it became alive. Then, it thanked us, and returned back to it’s home planet.
The second time we encounter the galactic gibberish is on Astro-Knights.
Now listen, there’s no way to confirm that the writing is absolutely the same language. But, I do have a weird theory. The totem on Nabooti was activated by the writing. When the UFO was getting activated, it went from English to what you can see above. I think the language acts as a power source. Everywhere else on the island, any space signs or books are in English.
The symbols once more act as some kind of space fuel. Also, notice how uncanny these letters compare to Astro-Knights… hm.
While these don’t exactly work as a source of power, they are a language. There’s no way to confirm if these are all the same one, but here’s my Popspiracy:
Poptropicans descended from aliens.
Really, it does make a fair share of sense. While the aliens we’ve seen are on the Pewter moon, they may not have derived from that planet. They can clearly space travel, mind the rockets. It’s possible that they speak English, but write it in a different way. It’s also possible they crash landed, or purposely chose Poptropica. Then, their skin pigments adapted to the environment, their hair adapted to the heat, but one thing that always stayed was their instinct to write in their chicken scratch / extra-terrestrial hieroglyphics.
It’s also logical how when we go to the Pewter moon, the aliens speak to us in our language, and any island in space’s signs and messenges are in English. It’s perfectly possible that English is the prominent communication of the universe, as an extension to my earlier thought.
I understand it’s a game, and the Aliens not speaking English would be hard for kids and anyone for that matter to really understand the story and the game. Though, theoretical does it not only make sense – with what I’ve provided, it also is logical, and better than anything as of now. 😛
What do y’alls think? Are Monktropicans, Poptropicans, and Aliens linked?
