My Dream Island

My Dream Island: Jedi Island (Mystery in Space) by Dangerous Dragon

Hey Poptropicans, this is a guest post by Dangerous Dragon. Enjoy!

What’s popping, Poptropicans? DD here, and it is a warm bright day in the Pop universe. Today I’m going to show you my Dream Island! I did not enter this into Poptropica’s contest because I was a little inactive at that time, but hey, I’m bringing my creativity here. Let’s begin!

*clears throat*

First look

The story begins with a cutscene, where you are an astronaut in space. Suddenly, there is a blast, and your spaceship breaks. You are now floating in the open space, unconscious but alive.

Rocket Man: Try to keep from burning out your fuel up here alone.

You wake up in five or six hours, not remembering anything. Then a person dressed in black robes comes to you. You try to run, but your feet are swollen, so you can’t move. Just as the darkly dressed man reaches you, he assures you that he is a good man, and he is the captain of this Jedi spaceship you’re in. You can’t believe it! You are in a Jedi spaceship!

From there, the screen goes black. Next thing you know, they have treated your legs so that you can walk around! Then the action begins… walking around, you find the captain in his room, and he looks a bit concerned. Turns out the whole crew’s lightsabers are running out of power, and they’re not sure how long they can keep their operation afloat.

Being the smart, adventurous Poptropican you are, you volunteer to help. So you search everywhere, gathering clues to help the Jedi find fuel and crystals for their operation… 

Locations

These are just a few of the places you’ll be visiting.

  • Launch site – This is where you’ll find many spaceships.
  • The cockpit – This is where the captain stays.
  • Planet Naboo – The place where you’ll find the crystals.
Hyperspeed: We’re going to infinity. But not beyond. That’s impossible.

Clues

As you help characters throughout the island, you’ll gain some helpful items and insights.

  • Keycard – you will get it by helping RW-22. This will help you open the room and look in the spaceship.
  • Repair kit for the spaceship – in the mechanic’s room. You’ll need it to repair the spaceship when it starts to break down!
  • A bone – for Princess Kopi (hello, Thinknoodles fans!), a dog you’ll meet on Fairy Tale Island (yes, the one currently in production… and yes, you’ll be traveling to different Pop islands!)
  • Dog tail – You can wear this, and when you tap the spacebar, the tail shakes and dances! You’ll need this to befriend a dog…
Photo Finish: Snapshots of happier times.

Characters

  • Captain Cyrus – The Jedi captain. You’ll be meeting with him throughout this island.
  • Ringmaster Raven (that’s right, our boy from Monster Carnival!): He’s good now. He’ll give you the crew’s lightsabers to fill them up with the crystals.
  • RW-22 – A droid who’ll give you a lesson on how to fly a spaceship and a keycard to open up a spaceship. He’ll only help you if you help him clean the captain’s spaceship in the launch site. There are loads of ships there, so you’ll have to explore them all to find the right one.
  • Co-captain Salerno – Yes, from Lunar Colony! She’ll be on the spaceship too (God knows how) and she’ll help you locate a planet you’ll need to find to save the ship.

Inspiration

To be honest, I don’t know anything about Star Wars, but I took some inspiration from a book called Star Wars Jedi Academy by Jeffrey Brown. It’s fun to read! I also liked Lunar Colony Island on Poptropica, which also inspired this island idea.

Wow, I enjoyed making this! I hope you liked my island, and feel free to share your feedback for what I can add! If you are interested in sharing your idea, you can comment below or create a guest post if you want to get detailed.

This is DD popping out. Keep on popping, Poptropicans! Pop on!

Monster Carnival Island

The Mystery Revisited

Not everybody knows it by name, but a lot of long-time players know it very well. It’s a something.

It’s a forgotten something. It’s a wonderful something. It’s a curious something. It’s a spooky something. It’s a festive something. It’s a mysterious something. It’s a whimsical something. It’s an amusing something. It’s a monsterous something.

It’s the carnival. Of monsters. Monster Carnival. Yup. A ringmaster to lead them all in a circus. It would’ve been dazzling! It would’ve been wonderous! It would’ve been all this…

… if it wasn’t taken off the map. (Okay, I’ll stop talking like a ringleader now.)

Monster Carnival had always been one of the greatest mysteries in Poptropica. It was an island that was put on the map back when Time Tangled (back then called Time Twisted) Island had a coming soon sign. I heard old tales of this mysterious island, although I never was a witness to the events. One day, Monster Carnival mysteriously vanished from the map, replaced by 24 Carrot Island. If you want to read more about this mystery, check out the PHB’s Mystery of Monster Carnival page!

However, Captain Crawfish made a curious post today about some old notes he found in his notebook:

One from the archives 

Digging through my desk today, I found an old notebook. Inside I saw some long-forgotten ideas for a Poptropica Island.

This is probably from late 2007 or 2008, right after Poptropica got started. As we developed it a little more, the “Haunted Amusement Park” took on a slightly different form (and name), but it didn’t end up becoming a real Island.

You never know, I guess.

CAPTAIN CRAWFISH

The Creators seem to be recognizing that us Poptropica fans are curious about this never-released island, and now we know that the original title of this island, before Monster Carnival, was Haunted Amusement Park.

Also, there’s some interesting notes on here- the column on the left talks about some of the things that would’ve been in the island (both circus and amusement park related), and the right side seems to talk about other things, information.

“Ringmaster has cursed/enslaved zombie carnival workers.”

Is that a good or bad thing? To me, that doesn’t sound very good. 😐

“Scare him into a cage? Make him eat cotton candy?”

“Horror-themed park infiltrated by real zombies.”

Wait… so Monster Carnival might have not started out as real monster-infiltrated? 😐

“The ringmaster has lost prized possession and is withdrawn, moody. Prized possession is bullhorn.”

Wow. This is some pretty good information that the Creators slipped to us. And Captain Crawfish’s last words sound a little strange to me:

You never know, I guess.

That sounds… like… could it be? Could the Creators be taking a closer look at this? Could they have realized our true curiosity of Monster Carnival? Could, if even possible, it be that they might be planning to go back to it?

We’ll never know- until we know for sure.

BT out!

Soon Nabooti Island and Big Nate will be coming out. But what on earth would The Poptropica Help Blog Team do?

Keep your eyes open because Poptropica Help Blog will be hosting its first Event.

I’m sure you’re all purring to know about it.

Astro-Knights Island, Monster Carnival Island, Sneak Peeks

UFO Meets Castle! *cue dramatic music*, Monster Island?

The Poptropica Creators’ Blog presents yet another sneak peek! In this sneak peek, we see the epic clash of… a UFO and a castle. What island is this picture depicting? No clue. Could it be… ALIEN ISLAND?

mystery_island

Perhaps this sneak peek is also of the same island? The image name is called “mystery_island”. Could the island be named Mystery Island (if any of you play Neopets, that might strike you a hearty chuckle)?  It couldn’t be Reality TV Island… right? I’m pretty sure they’re also finishing up with Nabooti and Big Nate so… huh. Ah, well. We’ll find out someday! =) Comment what you think this island is!

 

 Monster Carnival Island?

In other news. Codien has uncovered some very rare pictures that Smockers would love to have. :mrgreen:

Does this have a connection to either of the Mechanical Jungle or the UFO mysteries? …DUH DOH DAH
