So Many Things to Post About and So Little Time…

Sorry I haven’t posted recently!  I’ve been busy!  There are five things that I need to post about, and they are all going to be in this post!  So, prepare yourselves for a long post!

First up on the list of things to post about- the new island!

The next island that the Poptropica Creators are going to release is called Game Show Island.

Here is a picture from Game Show Island’s info page:

Here is what Game Show Island’s info page says:

In case you can’t read it, it says this:

Welcome to a future where robots rule.  Building computers to compete on TV game shows seemed like a funny idea- until the machines wanted more.  Now, after years of robotic dominance, Poptropica needs a savior.  Are you clever enough to beat the robots at their own games, and restore the dignity of all Poptropicans?

Enough about Game Show Island for right now!  Second thing on the list of things to post about- The Money Ladder!

The Money Ladder is an all-new mini-game that has come to Poptropica.  To play the Money Ladder, just go to your map, find Game Show Island, and click on the little bubble above Game Show Island that says “Play the new Money Ladder Game Now!”.

Once you click on the bubble, you will be brought to a new page.  The page has a section on it that tells a little bit about the Money Ladder.  Here is a picture of what the page says:

In case you can’t read that, it says this:

Money Ladder is the game that pits Poptropicans against machines!  Answer questions of increasing difficulty, earning dollars for each right answer.  But be careful- one wrong answer, and you’re out!  Do you have what it takes to reach the top of the Money Ladder?

Be warned, though, the questions have nothing to do with Poptropica.

Third thing on the list of things to post about- Poptropica’s Birthday Celebration.

The month of September is almost over, and with it leaves Poptropica’s Birthday Celebration.  Here is a post from the Poptropica Creators’ Blog telling about the closing of this joyous occasion:

It’s almost time to blow out the candles

Time flies! Poptropica’s fourth birthday celebration is almost over. The limited edition costumes that have been re-released to the store for the month of September are about to disappear.

These costumes are available until the end of the day on Friday for Poptropica Members. Even if your Membership ends in the future, you’ll still have the costumes to keep forever.

So what are you waiting for? If you’re a Poptropica Member, visit Poptropica and pick up your exclusive costumes from the Poptropica Store!

If you’re not yet a Member, find out how to become a Member today. Besides these limited-edition costumes, you’ll also have Early Acess to all new Islands, including Mystery Train and Game Show Island!

Our birthday may be almost over, but you can bet we have a lot more fun in store for Poptropicans in the months and years to come. Why, it’s still September yet, and we told you the Legend was coming this month. Tomorrow, we’ll let you know what that is!

Fourth on the list of things to post about- The Legend!

Awhile ago, the Poptropica Creators did some posts about something called “The Legend” that was going to come out soon.  And now, we get to find out what it is.  But, it is called “The Legend”, it is called “Legendary Swords”.  So far, all the Creators have said about Legendary Swords is that it is going to be something new in the Poptropica Store.  The Creators also posted this video:

Last thing on the list of things to post about- the Haunted House mini-quest.

Since October, and Halloween, is right around the corner, the Creators have decided to make the Haunted House mini-quest free once again.  Also, they have added a new prize for completing the mini-quest.  The prize is an all-new Zombie costume and power.  The power allows you to turn Poptropicans into Zombies.  All you have to do is click on them, and then ta-da!  They are a Zombie.  Here is what a Zombified- Poptropican looks like:

Here is a picture of the Zombie costume for girls:

Here is what the Zombie costume looks like for boys:

That’s all for now!

Where in the World is Dr. Hare? #’s 7 and 8

Dr. Hare is once again traveling the globe.  Here are the two most recent “Where in the World is Dr. Hare?” posts, the seventh and the eighth of the series of posts:

Where in the world is Dr. Hare?

Dr. Hare is on the loose again. This time he’s looking to catch a wave at a world-famous surfing spot.

Any guesses where he is?

Can you guess where he is?

Where was Dr. Hare?

On Tuesday, we showed you a picture of Dr. Hare in front of a kangaroo crossing sign. You probably guessed he was in Australia. But where in Australia?

Dr. Hare was at Bells Beach, in beautiful Victoria. But wait! There’s more. Now you can follow Dr. Hare in real time as he travels around the world with our interactive map.

Every time a new photo is added, it’ll automatically appear on the map. You can even embed the map on your own blog or website to share with your friends! Just copy and paste this code:

<object align=”middle” classid=”clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000″ codebase=”http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=10,0,0,0&#8243; height=”366″ id=”popup” width=”488″> <param name=”allowScriptAccess” value=”always” /> <param name=”allowFullScreen” value=”true” /> <param name=”movie” value=”http://www.poptropica.com/popups/DrHareTravels/popup.swf&#8221; /> http://www.poptropica.com/popups/DrHareTravels/popup.swf </object>

(Note that on a WordPress blog, you will need a plugin like Kimli Flash Embed to properly display the map.)

Dr. Hare is always on the move. And you can help, too. Get your own Dr. Hare toy and send him on even more adventures!

It wouldn’t let me copy the map directly from the post, so here is the map:

Prepare for the Hunt!

Once the official Poptropica guide is released, you will be able to go on a scavenger hunt around Poptropica.  Here’s a post from the Poptropica Creators’ Blog, telling more about the scavenger hunt.

The hunt is on! (Almost.)

The Poptropica guidebook will be available soon. We’re so excited about the publication of our first book that we’ve decided to ask all of you to help us celebrate!

Starting on the book’s release date of October 13, we’ll be running a scavenger hunt based on the book. Each week, we’ll give you three clues, and if you enter the answers correctly, you’ll win special in-game prizes for your Poptropican! Find out more about the contest on our official scavenger hunt page.

Poptropica: The Official Guide will be available on October 13. You can pre-order it now on Amazon.com!

But I’m no Veruca Salt. I can patiently wait for Mystery Train Island and the official guidebook, but I choose not to X).

Audience: …

Alright fine, I’ll wait.

Look what showed up at our office!

It’s a real, actual copy of the official Poptropica guidebook. And it looks great, even in an admittedly shoddy photo! This baby is 190 pages packed with full-color art, Island guides, and behind-the-scenes info straight from the Creators’ mouths. It even comes with a fold-out map that you can’t get anywhere else!
 
Poptropica: The Official Guide will be released on October 13, and is available for pre-order from Amazon.com. We’ll have more fun details about the book very soon!

*glares at Captain Crawfish* What the heck?
Captain Crawfish: That’s for throwing rotten fish at me.
I never threw fish at you.
Captain Crawfish: *to audience* Who throws fish at me all the time?
*audience points at me*
My gosh, I hate you.
Audience: You make us do it!
*Captain Crawfish throws a tomato at me*
Thanks a lot.

Oh hi. Look at this post to see a new author.

Hey. You. In there. See me? Ok, good.
My name is Brave Tomato, also known as BT/ Eliza/ Fern, and yes, I joined ANOTHER Poptropica blog. Why? Because I like it. Well, a little bit about me… I am a 13-year-old girl that has creative bursts at times. And my Poptropican’s signature look is the star on the cheek. My favorite island is Mythology island and… Yeah. I admit I like mythology. I also work on Super Thunder’s Blog, the Huntresses blog, and Where Thunder Roars, as well as others. Am I starting to get too wordy? Ok then..
New Audience: Just end the post.
Alrighty then… Catch u later! *walks off stage*

Wanted: The Best Author in the World!

Update: I’m not going to hire any more authors right now.  I’ll do a post the next time I want to hire some more authors.

That’s right, Icy Comet’s Blog is looking for a new author!  If you are interested in becoming one, then go to the Become an Author page, and follow the instructions on that page.

Train Depature Time: 5 Days, 0 Hours, 15 Minutes, and 33 Seconds

The Creators have added a timer on Poptropica, counting down the days, hours, minutes, and seconds until Mystery Train Island comes out.  Here’s a post from the Poptropica Creators’ Blog, telling more about Mystery Train Island’s release.

Your Mystery Train departure time

Have you got everything packed and ready for your ride on the Mystery Train? You’d better be, because it launches one week from today. We’re running a very tight schedule here, which is why if you visit the Poptropica homepage you’ll see a countdown timer that will take you to the second that the Island will become available.

What time will Mystery Train be available where you live?

Here’s what the countdown timer looks like:

Only five more days!

Good luck waiting for Mystery Train Island! 😉

Poptropica On Fire

Here is a video from the Poptropica Creators’ Blog, it is a sneak peek of something the Creators are working on for a new island.

I wonder what the new island could be about…
