PHB who? We’re all about the Poptropica Dating Sim now πŸ˜πŸ’‹

Poptropicans, we’ve got a major announcement to make.

The Poptropica Help Blog has sold its soul to the Poptropica Dating Sim. Henceforth, this Poptropica fan blog shall be in service to a fan creation about dating some of the game’s iconic villains.

In case you have not had the pleasure yet, the Poptropica Dating Sim is a brilliant simulator fan-made game where you, the player, can go on dates with Binary Bard, Ringmaster Raven, and Octavian. It’s all part of an experiment led by good old Dr. Morrigan to make the imprisoned bad boys, well, not so bad. And there’s going to be voice acting! πŸ’‹

We truly have to thank Jia/Magniventris, the genius behind the whole sim, for creating this ongoing masterpiece. You can play part of the Pop Dating Sim now on CloudNovel, and join us in awaiting its future installments! Forget seeing the PHB post about Poptropica news and clubhouse tours, we’re past that amateur hour. We know β€” the Poptropica Dating Sim Fan Blog is a blog you didn’t ask for, but it’s the blog we all need. Just look at how you can cheer up those sad souls! 😍

Maybe Ringmaster Raven will feel better with a little company…

Not sure which of these handsome hooligans to ask out first? Try our “Which villain would you date?” quiz to help you decide! πŸ€”

So what are you waiting for? Start playing the unofficial Poptropica Dating Sim today, and bring us all your shipping and simping, your fan art and fan fights β€” we’re totally here for it. After all, we’re the Poptropica Dating Sim Fan Blog now. And no, we’re not sorry. 😘

All the love,

Fan Art Features, Glitches, Social Media, Video of the Week

Video from Alana and villainous fan art πŸ

Happy weekend, Poptropicans! Pop in for a fun video, fan art highlights, and more from the community!

In this Video of the Week from the Pop Creators’ Blog, Alana returns to Poptropica after 8 years and plays through Arabian Nights, Ep. 1: How Bazaar. Watch as she rediscovers her old account, calls out an old man for being completely oblivious to theft happening before his eyes, and gets spooked by a handful of the forty thieves:

It’s kind of funny how the Creators’ Blog post starts with “Did you knowΒ there are people who have beenΒ playing PoptropicaΒ forΒ YEARS!?” β€” more evidence that they’re expecting, and catering to, new players over longtime ones. Speaking of the official blog, did you know there was no Video of the Week last week? πŸ€”

What does appear to be a regular occurrence, though, are fan art spotlights on the Poptropica Creators’ Instagram story! Check out the latest features from this week:

In other Poptropica news, the formidable Avatar Studio Glitch (ASG) is still going strong, even after the death of Flash. The PHB continues to update its ASG collection, so if you like strange and hard-to-find costumes, keep checking back there for new ones! Here are just a few we’ve added recently, thanks to Silver Horse and Dangerous Icicle:

That’s all for this post. Be sure to catch up on the other fun things happening in the posts below, from guest writers on the official Pop blog to what Astro-Knights Island may look like IRL!

Keep on popping, Poptropicans. ✌️

The Great Binary Bard?

Hey Poptropicans, it’s me, motionman95. There’s been a new Creators’ Blog post with the results of their latest poll “Who is your favorite villain?”.Β  The blog post is titled “Mr.Popular”, written by the Bard himself:

Here are the results of the latest poll.
And, it’s official. I am the greatest villain in the world!

0100001001110111011000010010000001101000

011010000110000100100000011010000110000100100001

And I didn’t even have to hack the results.

The binary translates to “Bwa ha ha ha ha!”. My favorite would have to be Booga or Betty Jetty (flying is awesome!). To the Binary Bard’s credit, at least he didn’t hack the results! (Or did he…?) πŸ™‚

On a different note, I’m here to be the bearer of bad news. On the PHF, a horrible technical error occurred (The Bard is a suspect!), that caused all accounts, posts,Β  to be completely removed from the forum. You can read more about it here. Luckily, the forums have bounced right back (take that Bard!) and I’ve installed a new forum with tons of cool features, such as:

  • An awesome, all-new arcade, where you can battle others to become the ultimate game champion!
  • Define your self with the new Social Groups!
  • A New skin and header!
  • Your own custom picture album, for all to see!
  • A new “Friends” feature!
  • And much more!

So swing on by the PHF today, create an account and chat with your fellow Poptropicans! Also, the Balloons and Torch items have been released in the Poptropica store, so be sure to buy them! You can read more about that below, or by following this convenient link.

That is one HOT ride, dude!

Today at the PCB we get a look into Binary Bard/Mordred’s transportation life! He sure does have taste in cars… and flame decals. Yet, it makes me wonder how much money he has to afford a giant robot that spews super-spiky wheels of doom, a robotic mouse and owl, and now a car?! Geez.

The binary, by the way, translates to Geo Metro (which I’m guessing is the model of the car =P)

Next, it seems like we have found yet another secret “Cool Stuff” item from the Poptropica Credit Store, much like the Party Room that was also discovered recently. This item seems to allow you to vanish/turn invisible! Cool!

That’s about it! Please check out the below posts detailing the results of our Dr. Hare Competition results and the new forum, the Poptropica Help Forum!

Also, sorry, I just have to make reference to the King of Pop[tropica], Michael Jackson, who died yesterday. =( This seems kind of awkward for a Poptropica blog, but this needs mention. Smockers out!

Keep on singing, Michael Jackson!
