Night-Watching the Games Sink

Shaggy Tornado with BREAKING NEWS!

After all the rumors and speculation, it looks like it’s confirmed. Here’s the news we just received:

————————

JANUARY 18, 2013 – Mews Foundation seismologists have confirmed the unthinkable: Poptropolis Games is on the verge of sinking back into the ocean. As the Island’s shaking intensifies, it seems clear that it will slip entirely beneath the surface of the Poptropica Sea by January 24. “We’re doing our best to accommodate as many athletes as possible before we sink,” said the Games’ master of ceremonies. “Be we recommend anyone who wants to compete does so as soon as possible. Who knows if the Games will ever rise again?”

————————

Sounds like Poptropolis Games could be gone in as soon as a week! You may want to take this opportunity to visit Poptropica and play it.

Yikes! Just like the fate of Monster Carnival, Poptropica is taking an Island off the map! When you look a the map, it seems to be sinking and when you put your cursor over it, the outline goes into the water:

Sinking Jan 24!

And then when you land:

Water!

Uh oh! There’s water on the island! So let’s follow the Creators’ suggestion! Go play Poptropolis Games NOW before it sinks forever by January 24! Take our handy walkthrough with you! NOW GO!

***

Actually, don’t. I still have some story to tell.

So you know how the Creators released the trailer for Night Watch Island? Well, they also released the Night Watch Members’ Pack!

So we have the Cat Burglar Costume, a Whoopzie Cusion (parody of Whoopie Cushion), and the Burnt Orange Tan Power. And as usual, the costume is only available during Early Access! Which hasn’t been announced yet. But it will soon! Speaking of Night Watch, the PHB discussion page for it can be found here, and this is the description:

After the stores have closed and the shoppers have all gone home, the mall is your playground. But are you alone on the night watch… or is someone watching you? From escaped animals to creeping cat burglars, get ready to find out what really happens after hours!

Interesting. Hopefully, we’ll get a release date soon! But I think none will top Zomberry Island in my opinion. 😛 Check out the Island Help page for the Night Watch trailer, discussion, desktop wallpaper, printable poster, and tour for more info.

That’s actually it this week. 😀 So go finish Poptropolis within a week and check out the Night Watch resources! I wonder what happens if you save on Poptropolis and it sinks. 😛 Hmm…

Have a great weekend! 🙂 Cheers!

Poptropolis News

Hey Poptropicans! Shaggy here. More disturbing news from the Poptropolis area! Check it:

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

DECEMBER 27, 2012 — Mews Foundation seismologists have verified reports of “sizable tectonic activity” taking place beneath the Poptropolis Games. “We’ve heard the stories about the island returning to the seas whence it came, but, frankly, we thought that smooth-talking emcee was just being dramatic,” said Mews Foundation spokesperson Cheerful Spinner. “However, at this time we are not confirming that the Poptropolis Games are, in fact, on the verge of sinking back into the sea.”

When asked if the Mews Foundation was denying that such an event was taking place, Spinner had no comment.

This is a breaking news story… updates as events warrant…

Sinking further.

Hmm, it does seem to be sinking further and further down compared to what BT took last. So what do you guys think? Are they sinking back into oblivion for the next 100 years? Or is it something else? Leave your speculations in the comments! If the island is, in fact, sinking, I think you better finish Poptropolis Games and fast!

Have a Happy New Year! 😀

Lunar Colony Island, Super Villain Island

Bring in the superheroes!

‘Cause guess what’s making an appearance! 😀

Four of Poptropica’s most vile, devious, and good-looking fiends will be returning in Super Villain Island.

What sort of evil schemes are they dreaming of? We’ll have a lot more information about Super Villain Island soon!

In the meantime, Poptropica’s newest Island, Lunar Colony, is available for Members to play! This is one of our favorites, and we hope you call enjoy it as much as we do. If you’re not a Member, you can still play a limited demo. Either way, visit Poptropica now to play! ~ Captain Crawfish

Lunar Colony Island, Sneak Peeks

Countdown to the birth of an island!

Excitedly waiting for Lunar Colony? Well, you are in luck! 😀

Lunar Colony will be out on August 16!

Non-members can play on September 6! 😀

(Thanks ND for the pic.)

The Creators also have a post for us! 😀

We’re in the earliest stages of planning a new Island – one that is still still months away from becoming reality. All we’ve got so far is an idea, and the pile of sketches you see above. Hard to believe, but one day this simple black and white schematic will become a full-blown Poptropica Island!

*sniff* They grow up so fast…  ~ Captain Crawfish

Interesting design! What I see from this is writing on the top saying Video Game. Places we can tell from here are the Wharf, Chinatown, Subway, and Brownstones. There also seems to be a list of items. I see cellphone, wallet, and shopping list. Hmm. What are your ideas on this idea? 😛

EDIT: Fuzzy-B shared his take on the new sneak peek:

The top looks kinda like it says “Video Game Survivalist” which is kinda interesting seeing that Brownstones leads to a bunker. Also the item list looks like: Address and Phone Number, Shopping List, Batteries, Empty Smoothie Cup, Cell Phone, Wallet ID and Subway Pass, Manifest, Car Keys. This seems like big city themed island with a subway and a Chinatown, but the bunker is interesting, I wonder why you would need one. Perhaps this is related to the return of Dr. Hare..?

It’s that time of year again! So I might be inactive for a spell.

Have a great rest of summer! Enjoy it while you can 🙂
