(Before I begin this post, I just want to say sorry for not posting in ages! I know that my last two posts have started this way, but, like I’ve said before, life’s been kind of crazy and hectic for me recently. Nothing bad has happened, I’ve just been super busy. Hopefully, now that it’s summer, I’ll have time to post more!)
Creating an island on Poptropica must be extremely complicated. I know that you’ve probably never had that thought cross your mind before, and, honestly, before today I never thought about it either. But take a moment to sit down, calm your brain, and just think about all of the things that the Creators have to do to design an island. They have to come up with a story line, bad guys, good guys, they have to design the backgrounds, buildings, all of the items, all of the clothing, they have to do all of the drawing, they have to do all of the coding, and they have to do about a million things more to make sure that Poptropica is the wonderful place that it is.
So, how do the Creators do all of that and what steps do they take to do it?
On August 1st, in the form of a book, the Creators are going to reveal all of their secrets. …Well, maybe not all of them, but that’s beside the point. Yesterday, the Creators announced a new book that will come out in a couple of months. The book is called the Poptropica Island Creator Kit.
According to Captain Crawfish’s post,
The Poptropica Island Creator Kit is an activity book that will walk you through all the same steps we take when we make a new Island. You’ll come up with a storyline, create characters, and design puzzles. There are some surprises in store, too.
The book is available for pre-order on Amazon.com. Click here to go see the page.
Right now, the book is priced at $7.19. And, like I said before, the book comes out on August 1st.
So, what do you think of the book? Do you think you’ll be getting it? Hopefully we’ll find out more about it soon!
