Crisis Caverns, Deep Dive, & Membership Makeover

Heyo everyone! SD here with another update. So let’s get to it!

First up, credit to idk for an entire album of Crisis Cavern themed Daily Pop sneak peeks! Too many to list in fact, but they’re there, so I suggest you check them out! šŸ˜›

Second up, credit also goes to idk for finding two cool test scenes for Deep Dive Island, now known as Mission Atlantis of course.  In both, you can explore and interact with a few things, but it was just a test so there isn’t much else to it.

While on the topic of Deep Dive Island, or Mission Atlantis, an unused diving suit was also found! As you can see below, it was all black instead of the yellow one that ended up being used. Pretty neat, huh?

Lastly, credit goes to WimpyKidFan for noticing that the Membership page for Poptropica has a new design! While it does look new, improved, and sleek, is this really what we want the Creators’ to be focusing on? Don’t get me wrong, it looks pretty cool! But it does seem like a small step towards “New Poptropica.” And don’t get me started on new islands.

Anyway, that’s it for now guys! If you’re already on summer break, I hope you’re having a blast! Or at least relaxing. If you’re almost there, I believe in you! Hang in there! If you don’t have a summer break… then, uh… *shrug*

Strange Things: Magic, missing Daily Pops, & Realms to all!

Hey guys! A lot of strange things have been going on in Poptropica lately.

First of all, there is a new ad popping up called Strange Magic! The ad can be found on islands such as Charlie and the Chocolate Factory on Main Street or in between places. All you have to do to earn your prize is watch its movie trailer. Girls get Fairy Wings andĀ boys get a Staff and ImpĀ costume.

If space bar is pressed while wearing the wings or staff, a shortĀ scene will play out where an imp will appear on screen and your Poptropican will fly.

Speaking of “strange”, if you’ve checked out theĀ Daily Pops recently, you may have noticed that sneak peeks haven’t been posted on their usual schedule. In fact, there haven’t been any new sneak peeks at all this week, and a couple of days in the past couple of weeks have been skipped as well.

There have only been 9 sneak peeks in January when there should’ve been 17 at this point (one for every weekday). Here they are below:

The most recent image was Head Games: What’s in the box? and was uploaded on January 16. It seems to be for Galactic Hot Dogs Island, but that’s not the point. šŸ˜›

Even though the Daily Pop schedule has beenĀ sporadic this month, the PHB has all of the imagesĀ that have been uploaded ready for you to viewĀ on ourĀ Daily Pop Sneak Peek Archive. šŸ˜‰

Lastly, as you may have seen in the updatesĀ toĀ HP’s Poptropica Realms post,Ā Poptropica Realms is now open to all!Ā Check out the PHB’s Realms guide for an in-depth look.

Lots of stuff has been added to HP’s Realms post below, including some strange hats relating to biomes that can be found in Realms, itsĀ theme music, and a video tour from HP himself. šŸ™‚

Treehouse tour, a popping 3D effect, & more art

Yep, the updates just keep on coming!

Best of Land winner: Zany Crown’s treehouse tour

The Public Land Preview may be over, but the hype isn’t! Captain Crawfish filmed a quick tour of Zany Crown’s treehouse, the winner of the “Best of the Land”Ā readers’Ā poll.Ā šŸ™‚

Pretty cool, huh? I definitelyĀ think the basement with the tree roots was the best part of the Land. It was super creative, so congrats, Zany! (Plus,Ā Land will be released as a full version early next year!)

Popping 3D on Forgotten Islands

Plus, the Creators posted a reminder thatĀ Poptropica: Forgotten Islands is now out for Nintendo 3DS. (Well, actually, it has been out for about a month now.) You can buy it from AmazonĀ or a local toy store if they haveĀ it. Just in time for the holidays!

This game marks the first time Poptropica has been presented with stereoscopic 3D, and you don’t even need overpriced 3D glasses!

More behind-the-scenes art

Of course, as is the trend these days, more behind-the-scenes art has been released on Poptropica’sĀ TwitterĀ and also their new Tumblr. (Click to enlarge the images.)

Check out PopStorm #4 –Ā deviating from the “hair” themes of the first three, this oneĀ demonstratesĀ theĀ squash and stretch theme.

Next we haveĀ Jeff Kinney’s rough castle sketch for Vampire’s Curse Island, which was drawn on a huge piece of paper. Looks like it didn’t deviate too much from the end product!

Finally, hereĀ is a sneak peek of aĀ palace interior scene for an upcoming, unannounced island. Apparently the island will be coming in January 2015, so that’sĀ not too far away!

Any theories, guys? I may be way off, but this image kind of reminds me of the underground cave Daily Pops that surfacedĀ throughoutĀ 2013. Some people even thought they could be for the return of Legendary Swords. Check out this or this PHB post for some of these sneak peeks, or see some of the images below from our Daily Pop sneak peek archive.

The images seem to have a similar style, right? Then again, at a second glace, the old Daily Pops remind me of Arabian Nights too. Well, hopefully you guys have some better theories than I do. šŸ˜›

Last but not least, PoptropiCon, Ep. 2: Spoiler Alert releases to everyone tomorrow! Get ready for a big plot twist – and if you need spoilers, check out our PoptropiCon Island Guide. šŸ™‚

That’s all for now! Comment your thoughts below. šŸ˜‰

Fishing Suit now in the Store, and some new city settings!

Hey everyone, after a (not so short) hiatus, I finally have finals, tests, projects, etc. out of the way and can beĀ active in the community again!

As previewed by HP in a post earlier this week (along with many other awesome things – so check it out if you haven’t), the new Fishing SuitĀ has been (officially) released for Survival – Episode 2. It is currently free in the Store for everyone, so make sure to go claim yours! (The Fishing Suit can also be found onĀ a tree trunk inĀ Episode 2.)

As always, there have been some interesting new Daily Pops. Sometimes these Daily Pops can give away a lot about upcoming islands. They helped us figure out thatĀ  “Mall” (Night Watch), “Movie” (Back Lot), “Monster” (Monster Carnival), and “Winter” (Survival) islands were all being prepared for release, and now it appears that the next island will have a city theme to it!

As you can see, the Portable Toilets, Pizza Pocket Truck, and vending machines, along with all the background imagery gives away that the creators are working on a new city themed project! What city, you may ask? I predict it will be San Francisco, or a city based on San Francisco. The second image gives it all away. In the background, behind the pizza truck we see a bay with a bridge over it. This bridge might just beĀ San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge!

So what do you think? Are you excited for a new San Francisco-based island? What do you think the plot could be about? Share your ideas in the usual place below!

Poptropica Hobbies: Underwater Basket Weaving

While strolling through the Daily Pop recently I found some images sharing a common theme: underwater. What could this mean? That can mean only one thing: Poptropicans may be heading under the sea for a new adventure sometime soon. I just hope that we have a better quest than underwater basket weaving!

Underwater underwater2

See urchins, spike covered fish, submerged mines – it looks like the oceans of Poptropica could be very dangerous! What could possibly be the plot of this Quest? The last time an island featured an underwater theme, we had to save a ship from sinking! What could be more dramatic then that? Whatever it is, this seems very exciting!

These scary fish and dangerous explosives leave me very excited to see what this could be! What do you think? What could we possibly be doing underwater this time?
