All about Red Dragon Island

Sorry I haven’t been posting lately (I really need to start posting more)!  To make up for it, here are 4 posts from the Poptropica Creators’ Blog that all have at least a little bit to do with Red Dragon Island.

Memoirs of a Poptropica costume

Looking through the store, it seems there are even more Japanese-inspired costumes that can get you geared up for the upcoming launch of Red Dragon Island. This Geisha costume for girls comes with a special item.

The Shamisen is a traditional three-stringed instrument found in Japan, which is a speciality of the Geisha. Put on this costume and press the spacebar to strum your Shamisen. Then sing yourself a happy tune as you await Red Dragon Island.

Go climb a tree

What do you suppose is happening here?

I’ve never seen a Poptropican do that before…

Traveling salesman

The sneak preview of Red Dragon Island just keeps getting better. Now it’s easier than ever for Poptropica Members to get your Midnight Red Ninja costume. Just pick it up at the kiosk next to the ring!

Now that’s what I call customer service.

New in the Poptropica store

New in the Poptropica Store: the Midnight Red Ninja costume!

This new ninja costume is inspired by the upcoming Red Dragon Island. The Midnight Red Ninja outfit is available exclusively to Poptropica Members.

All Poptropicans can also pick up two classic Japanese-inspired costumes: the original Midnight Ninja, and the Samurai.

Cool, huh?

Two updates in one!

Thursday, January 20, 2011

Well! It looks like I’m not the only one. We’re hearing a lot of chatter that Poptropicans who have ventured into Cryptids Island are finding it to be a pretty scary place. As an example…

This is the least creepy thing you’ll see in this house.

Are you ready to set foot into the most frightening Poptropica Island yet? We hope to see lots and lots of you on Cryptids Island this weekend!

On Cryptids Island, just like everywhere else on Poptropica, you can costumize a lot of different characters. But in some cases…

Yeesh! Why would you want to?

Tips and Tricks for Costumes

Here is another post from Black Widow, giving you tips and tricks for your costumes, though, most of us know this already.

Costume quest

You fashionistas out there already know that there are hundreds of outfits on Poptropica that you can costumize on Islands, or buy in the Store. And there are thousands of possible costume combinations that you can put together when you combine pieces from them all.

All those accessories can be hard to hold onto. Here are a few tricks for keeping around your favorite ensembles.

The Costume Collector Gold Card is available in the Poptropica store. It’s free to use for Members, or 250 Credits for non-Members. With the Costume Collector, you can store up to three of your costumes exactly as they are, so you don’t have to worry about having to put them all together again later.

The Portrait Printer, also in the Store free for Members and 250 Credits for non-Members, lets you immortalize your greatest fashion creations on paper. You can pose your Poptropican, add one of several backgrounds, and then print it out for all to see!

Finally, all Members and non-Members with a Poptropica username can use the Avatar Studio to save a picture of their current look and share it with the world. So what are you waiting for? Get out there and play dress up!

Really, Creators, don’t you think we know that already?

Kites and Cryptids

Icy Comet: Welcome to the Poptropica News Channel!  It looks like you can fly a kite in Cryptids Island!  Here is Black Widow, telling you more about how you can go fly a kite in Poptropica!

Black Widow: Thanks, Icy Comet!  here is the story:

Go fly a kite

Hey, Poptropica Members! Did you know that you can fly all the kites in the kite store on Cryptids Island? There are lots of kites to choose from.

Pandas do make me smile.

Try more of them, if you haven’t. And you non-Members don’t have long to wait. Cryptids Island will be open to everyone on January 18.

Icy Comet: Hey!  You changed the non-members’ release date to January 18th!  It used to be January 17th! 😡

Black Widow: Let’s go onto the next story…

Icy Comet: Next up on the Poptropica News Channel, a story about a man from Kentucky who thought he saw the Chupacabra.  Here to tell you more, Captain Crawfish!

Captain Crawfish: Well first of, if you don’t know what the Chupacabra is, I would suggest reading this, so you understand the story better.  But read it fast, I haven’t got all day!  Now, if you are done reading that, here is the story:

Cryptids in the news!

Did you hear the news? A couple weeks ago, a man in Kentucky saw a strange creature running around his farm at night. He shot and killed it, and discovered a bizarre, hairless creature with a pointed snout that walked on four legs.

Well, some people thought this might have been proof of the chupacabra — not that the man had had any bloodless goats turn up on his farm recently.

Unfortunately for monster hunters, a wildlife biologist examined the body and determined that the creature was probably a raccoon suffering from a disease that had caused all its hair to fall out. Oh well. The chupacabra may still be hiding somewhere out there!

Icy Comet: One last thing before we have to go, Icy Comet’s Blog will not be hiring any more authors for awhile, I will let you know when they will start hiring authors again.  Congratulations to Neat Comet who was recently hired as an author!

P.S. Let me know if you liked the way I did this post, I wanted to try something new, but I didn’t know if it was going to sound good or not.  If you like it, I might do more posts like this.

Poptropica for the Holidays

The Creators are going to tell us about Poptropica Game Cards.  Probably most of you know it already, but, if you don’t, take a look at their post!

What’s on your holiday wish list?

Are you a Poptropica Member who wants to extend your Membership and keep enjoying Early Access to new Islands, plus unlimited use of all costumes and Gold Cards?

Are you not yet a Member, but you want all those great Membership benefits, or 1000 Credits to shop for costumes and Gold Cards in the Poptropica Store?

No matter what kind of Poptropica player you are, if you’re looking for the perfect gift this holiday season, look no further than the Poptropica Game Card.

With a Poptropica Game Card, you can get a month-long Membership to enjoy our newest Islands — like Cryptids Island — and unlimited use of everything in the Store. Or, you can redeem your Game Card for 1000 Credits, and buy costumes and Gold Cards to keep forever.

Pop the Gum!

There is a new popgum in the store! Yeay! Black Widow posted this. She does owe us from Counterfeit Island and maybe Reality T.V. Island. So *trumpets* this is what she says :

Tuesday, October 26, 2010

Just in time for Halloween, you can get a spooky new type of chewing gum in the Poptropica Store.

When the spooktacular gum pops, a group of wailing ghouls flies away. Take some into any common room and see if you can scare the daylights out of other Poptropicans, like I did to this precious princess here:

Who needs a costume? Not me!

Game Cards

The Creators have been really busy making new stuff for Poptropica, a perfect example would be the new game cards that they just made.  Here’s the post that Black Widow did telling you all about these new cards.

If you’ve been to a Target store recently, you might have seen something interesting in the electronics section. Something that looks a little like this:

Introducing the Poptropica Game Card! Poptropica Members can use Game Cards to extend their existing Memberships by 10 weeks. Non-Members can use them either for a new 10-week Membership, or 1,000 Credits to use in the Poptropica Store. Either way, you win!
Poptropica Game Cards are available now at Target, and are coming soon to many other retailers. You know, the holidays are right around the corner…

Another thing that members can use to their advantage.  Well, at least this time non-members can use it as well.

I went to Main Street on Early Poptropica Island, and talked to Greg Heffley.  He said, “Come back on Thursday to see the front cover of my new book.”  Looks like another Diary of a Wimpy Kid is coming out.
