An Extremely Busy Week

This has been a very busy week for Poptropica, with the release of Poptropica Friends and the non-Members getting to play Twisted Thicket, I haven’t been able to update!

So, first off, Poptropica Friends is ‘in the hospital’

Saturday, May 5, 2012

Friends overload!

Whoa! We hoped that everyone would like Poptropica Friends, but even we didn’t expect it to be this popular. The demand for all the new Friends features has been so great that it’s overloaded our servers! As a result, we’ve temporarily had to turn off some of the features to address the load.
Be assured, we’re working hard behind the scenes to bring everything back up to speed. We’ll post any updates right here.
Thank you for your enthusiasm!

Long story short, the former Director meant “You can’t do anything in Poptropica Friends except add friends and get photos until we fix this issue”.
Like I said, play Poptropica Friends to get photos… and see them in the future!

Everybody’s working for the weekend

Whew! What a week it was at Poptropica. One day, we launched Poptropica Friends, and the next day, we opened up Twisted Thicket to everyone. Now, the weekend begins, and we plan to rest a bit — but we hope you’ll take the next few days to dive in and take advantage of all the great new stuff Poptropica has to offer!
So get out there — earn photos, make friends, and explore the tangled undergrowth of Twisted Thicket. And keep an eye out for all the other great stuff that’s coming soon to Poptropica, including Poptropolis Games!

Counterfeit Island is spiking in POP-ularity this weekend! Edvard Munch’s “The Scream” sold for a record-breaking 119.9 million dollars!

Thursday, May 3, 2012

$120 million? Let’s hope it wasn’t counterfeit!

Did you hear that the famous painting The Scream just sold for 119.9 million dollars? That’s a lotta dough! In fact, it’s the most that anybody has ever paid for a painting in history. Now you understand why it was so tempting to steal it.
You don’t need to spend a fortune to get your hands on The Scream. You can just go to Poptropica and play Counterfeit Island! Counterfeit Island is a crackling canvas caper full of secret identities, forged artwork, and high-octane scooter chases.
Of course, like almost everything else on Poptropica, playing Counterfeit Island is totally free. Let the wealthy buy their expensive paintings. You’re the one having all the fun!

Now, this is just me, but I don’t like the painting to much. Me, I might pay $100,000. I just don’t like it.
Like at the top of the broadcast, Twisted Thicket is out to all!

To rap this post up, tonight, a really good show called Finding Bigfoot is on. So, if you enjoy Cryptids Island, watch “The Cryptid Show: Starring Bigfoot!” It’s on Discovery and Animal Planet!

A Sickening Amount of Poptropica Friends

In all technicality, all of the Creators’ posts about Poptropica Friends isn’t sickening, but right now I have a nasty cold, and my nose is running like a river. (Make any jokes and you comment will be deleted IMMEDIATLY)

Anyway, they have given us details about the Costume Closet.

Friday, April 27, 2012

Trapped in the closet?

We can admit that we’re not perfect. One thing Poptropica is missing right now is an easy way to save the best costumes that you’ve put together. With Poptropica Friends, that will no longer be the case!

Another new feature with Poptropica Friends is the Costume Closet, which allows Members to store up to 30 unique costumes at a time. Not only that, but you can look through your friends’ closets and borrow their best costume ideas, as well.
There you have it! The days of putting together a spectacular costume and then having to get rid of it are almost over.

And if my calculations are correct, we should have Poptropica Friends sometime in a one-week time period.

Even More Poptropica Friends!!!

All this week, the postings on the Poptropica Creators Blog have been about one thing: Poptropica Friends! Well, the other non-Poptropica Friends post was to say that Twisted Thicket will be availible to all on the 2nd. Big woop.

Your number 1 album

One of the new features that will be coming with Poptropica Friends is the photo album. It’s like your own virtual scrapbook of your adventures through Poptropica!
By playing through Islands, you’ll occasionally see a message that says “New Photo Added” when you get to an important part of the story. Then, when you visit your photo album, you’ll see snapshots showing you a new perspective of your character’s feats. Every Island has about four different photos. There are over 100 in total!
Even better: every time you earn a new photo, the outfit you were wearing at the time is recorded in the picture. Even if you change clothes, you can costumize from your photos later!
Wait, there’s more! If you’re looking through a friend’s photo album, you can costumize off of them, too. It’s like the number of possible costumes just went to infinity!

Anyway, today I’m home sick with possible Strep, so I’ll go adios!

A Review in Poptropica

Bonus points!

For the past few Islands, we’ve been including a bonus quest that tells the story after the story. They’ve all been fun, but they’ve never been quite like the one on Twisted Thicket.

When you play the Twisted Thicket bonus quest, you’ll have access to a trio of special powers: troll strength, dryad wings, and goblin speed. You’ll need all of them in order to complete this special, extra, extra-special adventure!
Twisted Thicket will be available to everyone on Wednesday, May 2. But only Members will be able to play the bonus quest — and only Members can play Twisted Thicket right now!

We wanted to share this self-portrait we received from Poptropican Super Sky:

Not bad! Next time we might suggest wearing a hot dog costume, though.

That noses for Poptropicans bid, an April Fools joke! But, that wasn’t entirely a joke! You can go to the Poptropica Store and buy a set of 3 noses!

No need to run from these noses

Well, most of you caught our little April Fools’ joke over the weekend. We aren’t adding noses to Poptropicans. Everyone would look too weird!
But there was a grain of truth in our gag. Now, you can get a fake nose in the Poptropica Store!

Fortunately, these Poptropican noses are optional, not mandatory. So visit the Poptropica Store today to get your fake nose — and get a jump on next year’s April Fools’ Day!

Who nose what’s new in Poptropica?

We’re excited to announce the most groundbreaking, innovative feature in the history of Poptropica: Noses!
On Monday, we’ll be adding noses to every single character on Poptropica, whether you want one or not. Now, your Poptropican will be better than ever at sniffing out clues, stuffing the competition, and running up the score. Not since the introduction of the Costumizer or the removal of the Monster Carnival map icon have we made an update this momentous.
We hope you’re as excited as we are about this amazing new update. You will always remember April 1st as the day everything changed on Poptropica!

That’s this week in review! Adios!
