Suit Up Games spins Poptropica to Roblox?

What’s up with Suit Up? ๐Ÿง A new link has subtly been added to the bottom of the Poptropica homepage, directing visitors to Suit Up Games, a game studio with Dr. Hare in its logo. Here’s what we know…

Suit Up Games is a work for hire game studio specializing in Roblox, the popular virtual world for kids. They haven’t listed what games they’ve worked on so far, but it’s possible that they might be behind Poptropica’s Roblox releases earlier this year, Unicorn Frenzy and Zomberry: Humans vs Zombies. It seems we havenโ€™t heard the last of Pop meddling with Roblox… in fact, maybe it’s just the beginning.

Poptropica has yet to clarify their relationship, but their website claims that they are “a spin out of Poptropica.” If this means more of Pop’s resources are being diverted to Roblox projects… yikes.

Suit Up Games calls itself “a spin out of Poptropica.”

Last month, Poptropica initiated a follow spree on Twitter, following back mutual Pop fans who followed “our friends @SuitUp_Games.”

Suit Up Games soon followed up the hype with a tweet of cursed Poptropica meme faces (not to be confused with our own similar series) on Hades and Myron Van Buren. It’s their only Pop-related tweet so far.

Suit Up Games seems to be a relatively new company, considering they are a “spin out” of Pop and they’ve only been mentioned by them in the past month. Suit Up’s website also shows they’re currently hiring Roblox developers and more, suggesting they’re still building their team.

Suit Up joined Twitter in June 2022, but their website claims they’ve been active since 2007, i.e. Poptropica’s founding year. However, the LinkedIn profile of the studio’s Managing Director may be closer to the truth, as it shows he took on the role starting March 2022.

And how did he get here? Turns out Ross Targett is also the founder and current Managing Director of Code Kingdoms, which teaches children how to code via Minecraft and Roblox. It was acquired by Roblox in 2020, and then by Sandbox & Co (which also owns Poptropica) in 2021.

Notice anything else interesting about his profile? The London-based Ross is also concurrently the General Manager of Poptropica, a role he began at the same time as the one at Suit Up Games! Besides taking over from Natalie Shahmiri, the previous GM, Ross’s joint holding of these executive positions also means his leadership work is divided between the three projects: Code Kingdoms, Suit Up Games, and Poptropica. Can Poptropica still be managed with the attention it deserves?

And will Suit Up Games bring more Poptropica content to Roblox? Or will the two realms stay separate? We’ll have to see…

Lookin’ for An AVATAR?

Well, Gazek Speaking Here, And I’ve Got news, BIG TIME news! I know that you’re already loaded up from ST Hijuyo’s name change, but read on!

Poptropica has released a new thing called the Poptropica Avatar Studio, And It is COOL! For all of you people who are bashing their keyboards on the floor ’cause your not able to take screenshots of your poptropican, (Quote Taken From Crazy Flyer) The Avatar Studio is for You! Thanks To BuizelON, a member of the PHF for this update. The Avatar Studio is amazing, all you need to do is type in your username, and poptropica will show your poptropican.ย  Then you start cropping, and you can either type in the dimensions, or draw the selector around the place you want to crop.ย  Then you have an option of zooming in. At the bottom there’s an embed code used for putting this on your website or blog, and then a direct link, and then a button that allows you to save it on your computer. You can also use this for your wordpress gravatar. But this also means that motionman95’s Image generator has competition! As for me, I think that the Image generator is better, poptropica could have added a few more a features, ;). Check out the snapshot below, It shows you most of the Details.


And Speaking Of Avatars and Gravatars, I had a Pretty bad experience with my wordpress gravatar. I was changing my gravatar to a new one, And something TERRIBLE happened. My wordpress gravatar changed all right, but into some wierd gravatar!!! Check out the widget in the sidebar, and see my gravatar. Horrible, eh? Well, hopefully I’ll be able to do something about this and this problem will soon be over.
