Hey everyone, it’s Perfect Sky!
After the announcement of Poptropica Worlds, most players have had many questions regarding the new game. Although some of our questions were answered in a Q&A with Skinny Moon on the PHC last month, more information has been revealed in a new Creators’ Blog post, which looks at some frequently asked questions (FAQ).
This FAQ could very well be the Creators’ way of responding to the PHB’s earlier post, Thoughts on Waiting for Poptropica Worlds, in which we commented on their silence on the matter of the big new game. The PHB post is linked to within the FAQ.
The post also included this cool preview image, in the new Poptropica Worlds art style. It’s interesting to see some familiar sights in the background, like the classic Poptropica blimp, and mountains that resemble Survival Island. Some newer, interesting observations include:
- the newer Poptropican anatomy: with four-fingered hands, thicker limbs, shoes, and more 3-dimensional shading
- islands in the background, with a twist: Astro-Knights with a knight calling up to the princess, a skull island (Skullduggery or MOTM?), Survival, and a ferris wheel (Monster Carnival?)
- a park ranger like the ones seen in early Crisis Caverns sneak peeks, further suggesting its return – and she’s sharing a map with Oliver, which may either be a hint at connecting that storyline with the graphic novel (especially considering the map), or may just be an artistic decision
Anyway, let’s take a look at the FAQ:
Will Poptropica be shut down when Poptropica Worlds comes out?
No. You will still be able to play Poptropica when Poptropica Worlds debuts.
Can my Poptropican play Poptropica Worlds?
Yes! Your Poptropican can play both Poptropica and Poptropica Worlds.
What can my Poptropican bring from Poptropica to Poptropica Worlds?
You can port over your Poptropican’s basic look and name.
Will there be a Poptropica Worlds app?
Yes, and Poptropica Worlds is cross-platform. That means when you play through some of an Island in the app, you can continue it on the web, and vice versa. If you change your Poptropican’s look on the web, they’ll look the same on the app.
Will you put any new Islands on Poptropica?
All new Islands will be released for Poptropica Worlds only.
Will Poptropica Worlds have some Islands from Poptropica?
There will be a mix of remastered Poptropica Islands and brand new ones in Poptropica Worlds! They won’t be released all at once — remember, it took 9 years to build all those Islands on Poptropica — but you can look forward to lots of cool stuff in 2017!
Is it true I’ll have my own house in Poptropica Worlds?
Yes, when we launch Poptropica Worlds you’ll be able customize the inside of your very own home. As the year goes on, we’ll be rolling out more features and customization options.
Can I customize my Poptropican?
Yes, you’ll still be able to customize your Poptropican’s hair, skin color, and clothes — and you’ll be able to pick your own first and last name!
Will Poptropica Worlds have memberships?
Yes, and membership will give you access to lots of awesome members-only stuff!
Will Poptropica Worlds have multiplayer features?
Yes, but not right away. One of our first priorities: Giving you the ability to invite friends to your house.
Will there be other things to do in Poptropica Worlds besides playing Islands?
Yes! You’ll have to wait and see what we have in store for you…
By the way, what’s taking so long for Poptropica Worlds to come out?
We care very much about our players and take your blog posts to heart. We want to make the game as good as we can for EVERYONE — that means people who play on mobile and on the web. And perfecting all of those platforms takes time.
And one more thing: It drives me crazy that Poptropica only goes up to age 15. Can you fix that in Poptropica Worlds?
We hear you and yes, you can pick your age in Poptropica Worlds!
Wait! One more question! Will Dr. Hare still be in Poptropica Worlds?
Oh yes, and he’ll be badder and schemier than ever!
And there we have it, Dr. Hare is confirmed in the new game! I’d assume all the other main villains will make an appearance in Pop Worlds too, but who knows? We’ll find out soon though.
Well, that’s all for the FAQ. Have all your questions about Worlds been answered, or is there more you’d like to ask the Creators? Comment below! Perhaps Skinny Moon will return for another Q&A session sometime soon.
