Howdy, Poptropicans! It’s Lucky Joker here with an unlisted video to share from the YouTube channel of Poptropica visual designer, Kyle Fox. (Thanks to idk the glitcher for the cool find!)
In the short preview, you can see what Poptropica Worlds was like during its early stages before it was released. A few placeholder art and other assets such as “Short description or clue for how to use the item” were never seen in the game — as well as items including a Big Apple and various clothing parts.
At the very beginning, in the top left corner, you’ll also notice a bar marked with a number six (possibly referencing a level system?) and a not-so-familiar currency called Moonstones. We could only wonder what the purpose of having two forms of currency was.
Pretty interesting, huh? It’s unfortunate the developers’ hard work has gone to waste, seeing that Poptropica Worlds has since been abandoned. Were you a fan of “the new Pop”? Leave your opinions in the comments!
Plus, if you’re interested, check out our Poptropica Portfolio on Fox from a couple years ago. And don’t forget to participate in this month’s Community Creations and/or enter our Halloween costume contest for a chance at a free membership! You don’t want to miss out on the fun!
Talk to you all in the next one. Pop on!
– Lucky Joker 🍀

Interesting to see what could’ve been! The bottom placement of the inventory seems like it’d work well. As for the moonstones though, not sure we need another currency in the game. 🙂
As much as I prefer the original Pop, Pop Worlds had a lot of potential and was a step forward from what O.G Pop was doing.
