A PHB Special: the Ongoing Story Creation

8mil ongoing story creation
In celebration of this Poptropica Help Blog recently reaching 8 million hits (thanks everyone!), we’re going to do something fun! In the comments section, ANYONE is welcome to join in as we weave an ongoing story, a Poptropica fan-fiction of sorts, told in second-person narrative. It begins here…

“Um, hello. I’m here to register for something called, uh, ‘Poptropica’?” Amidst the realm of blue vines in front of you, a crate, small and wooden, bounces out, shaking blue dust and spitting out a question of your gender. You stare incredulously before you finally manage to respond. “I’m a boy,” you tell the little box, and then it erupts a circle of numbers in individual bubbles as it asks you the next question. This is a very strange sign-up process, you think to yourself, as you decide to tell the box etched with a curious question mark that you are 9 years old.

“Your name is Jumpy Jumper. When you are ready, hop into the blimp and travel to any island.” You ponder the map for a while, but decide none of the islands suit you. “There’s got to be something better…” you mutter to yourself. Just then, you see it. Out of the corner of your eye, there’s another island, shrouded in mystery by layers of smog and unidentifiable smells. Island X.

“But no one’s ever been there before,” the voice warns, the voice of the box that had guided your creation earlier. “Jumpy Jumper, JJ, you can’t… how did that even get on the map anyway? It’s not safe… please no… JJ!!” But it’s too late. You’re gone.

What happens next? Will JJ survive the unknown dangers of the mysterious Island X? What is the island’s secret, its true name, the people, the villain(s), the setting? You and your fellow PHB readers get to decide what items he collects and uses, other places he visits, and the adventures that await…

RULES: Make sure it follows what others have written before you, makes sense, and if you wish to add a comment that is not part of the story itself, use parentheses, for example: (I think we should…) Your comment can be as long or short as you like and you are definitely welcome to contribute as many times as you like. Be creative!

Advertisements, Store, Web Development

The Multiverse Project, an Ad, and new Store items!

I’m posting from my “Coderkid” account instead.

(Motionman95 has changed his WordPress account to ”Coderkid”. They’re the same person.) 😀

First of all, hello again Poptropicans! (Man, I really new to come up with better introductions for my posts… :/)

Anyway, there are 2 new developments in Poptropica:

  • New “Ice Age 3” Ads on the side of Poptropica
  • New Store items “Silly String”, “Followers: Spook Pack”, Werewolves, Creepy Countess, and Swamp Monster costumes!

Silly String, is basically a canister (like on the fire fighter costume) that sprays..well, silly string, duh! 🙂 It’s very useful for PWNing people in Multiverse rooms! 😆

The “Followers: Spook Pack” is basically a different version of the original, including pets such as a ghost, pumpkin, skull, and bat. I think it’ll probably be a “limited time” item. Meanwhile, the other Follower item has been renamed to ”Followers: Classic Pack.”

The new costumes, Swamp Monster and Werewolf Boy, are both scary. Swamp Monster is basically a fishy looking dude, whereas Werewolf Boy is doggy dude, with killer teeth. “Good boy” – I think not. 😆 Only girls get access to the Werewolf Girl and Creepy Countess costumes.

I have the Silly String, and I must say it compliments my outfit! 😛
Take a look, and tell me what you think: Clickey! I’m not sure myself, but I think I was aiming for a “tagger” type theme.

Here’s a picture from the Poptropica Creators’ Blog showing off the ‘frightening’ new items! Let us let the fun begin at the Ghoul’s Gala at the Haunted House! Throw the colorful streamers at the evil monsters and get your little floating skull friend to follow ya. 😛

And in other developments, The Multiverse Project has been released! With this awesome online tool, you’ll be able to submit your Multiverse room codes or view a list of currently open ones. Find your favorite hangout spot and rock out with friends!

Can you believe it? After all this time…it’s finally here. Be the first to try it out.

Enter The Multiverse Project.

I’d love your feedback on it! Don’t forget to look at the post below and read about the Ice Age Ad quest!
