April Fools! A date of sim-ple fun πŸ’–

So Poptropicans, how did your dates go with the venerated villains? Now that the night’s over, we’re coming clean to say… April Fools!

The Poptropica Dating Sim Fan Blog is getting a goodnight kiss, and the PHB’s back, baby. Did you miss us? 😘

The PHB became the Poptropica Dating Sim Fan Blog on April Fools’ Day.

Some of you caught on to our shenanigans yesterday, but others of you just could not believe it! 🀣 Check out some of our favorite reactions from the community on the PHB post and on our PHC Discord server:

Now that the jig is up, we figure we’ll share a bit about how this all came to be! Of course, the PHB loves pulling its share of April Fools’ pranks, and this year was no exception.

Inspired by the fan-made Poptropica Dating Sim created several months ago by Jia/Magniventris, the PHB’s MaryannTheConqueror dreamed up the idea of turning the PHB into one giant ad for this beloved spin-off game, keeping it a surprise from Jia. She also created the header image, which features the dating sim characters in anime style!

Adding to all the fun, Lucky Joker then created a β€œWhich villain would you date?” quiz to help match players with a villain to date in the simulation. By the way, you can still take the quiz!

While the Poptropica Dating Sim Fan Blog was just a fantasy, the Poptropica Dating Sim itself is most certainly real and still getting updates! This unofficial Poptropica visual novel takes you on daring dates with iconic Poptropicans Binary Bard, Octavian, and Ringmaster Raven, and we are in love. 😍 Play it now on CloudNovel!

  1. I knew that it was a prank! Can’t believe people fell for it. Also PHB, do you mind if I contribute for next April Fools? My new blog may come in handy…

  2. Ha ha, very funny, PHB..
    I almost fell for it I’m like “OMG seriously??”
    But yeah I hope the dating thing gets updated soon because I want to check out Raven’s tent again. Haven’t seen it since Monster Carnival was still here…

  3. Slanted Fish can u help me? In card collector is there also a code for a vampire costume? Also no need of the colourizer in the new u! I have it in my inventory from the card collector!

      1. Never mind…
        3260- vampire count girl
        3139- vampire girl 1
        3140-vampire girl 2
        3141-vampire girl 3
        try these codes

  4. right when I read through the whole thing I was like, “Nope. it’s April 1st. this HAS to be a prank

  5. When will the next Tribal Tournaments be?
    This is my first year on the blog, so all of this is new to me, but I’ve been reading old posts and the tournaments sound fun!

    1. Having a Tribal Tournament will look different without Poptropolis Games, and takes some effort in planning either way, so we’re not promising anything at this point. But we definitely hope to continue having fun events on the PHB, so thanks for joining us! 😊

What's popping, Poptropicans?
