Hey Poptropicans, pop in for the latest pro-tropica propaganda, celebrating the spirit of International Women’s Day, a fan game, and more! ✊ No misinformation here, we promise. Just spicy tweets. 🔥
The Pop Creators celebrated International Women’s Day (March 8) on the official blog, highlighting several female role models: abolitionist leader Harriet Tubman, US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, disability rights advocate Helen Keller, and NASA scientist Katherine Johnson. 👸🏾 Unlike last year’s celebration of Amelia Earhart, these women have no counterparts in Poptropica, which makes this post a bit off-brand from the rest of the blog. Nevertheless, we stan these queens!
Anyway, over on their Instagram story, Poptropica did put out a more Pop-based post for International Women’s Day with a collage of iconic Poptropica females mostly from islands lost, including the museum curator from Counterfeit Island and Daphne Dreadnaught from the Spook Central minigame. And check out the latest fan art features:
That last one is particularly noteworthy: they’re screenshots from a Poptropica fan game! If you visit the artist’s IG page, you’ll find a link in their bio to Tropican Plaza, a fan-made island built on Unity. The gameplay is just like a typical Poptropica quest, with a storyline (about catching snakes for a fashion show to save a shop owner’s business) and items to collect and use. Play it here, or watch the walkthrough below:
There’s been some pretty cool fan art shared on Twitter lately too (plus an underrated thread of Poptropica animals) — enjoy a beloved Black Widow, OC and other character doodles, and perhaps most stunningly, a recreation of the Binary Bard in Sims 4:
Also, curiously after our post about Poptropica’s Twitter follows being mostly of brands without direct relation to Pop, Poptropica announced that they’ll be doing a follow spree once they hit 10K followers.
With 8.7K followers now, it might be a little while, but Poptropica fans have been dropping their handles just in case the moment comes. And they did follow some of them back already — they’re now at 146 following, nearly 3x more than before!
And remember the big reveal last week of Poptropica making a Roblox game? While no new info has been released, the legendary YouTuber Thinknoodles did take notice. As someone who is known for both Poptropica and Roblox videos, having the two worlds collide is going to make for a pretty special video on his channel! 👀
Anyway, we started this post with a Pop pun — let’s end with one too! Were or are you an entrepreneur of Poptropica secrets? 🤔
Pop by later, Poptropicans! ✌️
