Hey Poptropicans, let’s dive into another Poptropica Portfolio.
Like the last portfolio we showcased, this one features copywriting work, this time from former senior story developer and narrative designer Mitch Krpata, also known as the voice of Captain Crawfish—writer of Poptropica books, blogs, islands, and more.
Soon after he was let go by Poptropica, Mitch decided to compile a portfolio of his written work with the game he’s worked with for the past decade. Though the artwork is not his, the visuals help bring his words to life—as you can see below.
You can view the complete portfolio in this Google presentation. The slideshow covers his graphic novels, dialogue, UX/UI elements, titles and brand names, marketing, and walkthrough videos—all for Poptropica, but likely to expand over time as he pursues other projects.
In a blog post, Mitch says this of his work with Poptropica:
Bit odd to look back and see how much of my life’s work has been tied up in this one property. It’s a source of pride, because few people have the opportunity to write for such a wide, enduring audience, and also sobering, because I realize how many creative avenues have gone unexplored.
Thanks, Mitch, for everything you’ve done for Poptropica over the years! Your stories and good wit have brought a lot of life to the world of Poptropica that people will continue to enjoy in the years to come. Sail on, Captain Crawfish.
If you liked Mitch Krpata’s portfolio, be sure to also check out the portfolio of Jessica Devine (Skinny Moon), another copywriter we’ve featured here.

Hope you enjoyed this portfolio! Stay awesome, Poptropicans. ☠️
