Cryptids Island Guides Part 6 and 7


*cough* Sorry about my momentary wierdness.  Happens a lot.


Anyway, the videos are below.  I’ll also put them on the Video Guides page, so make sure to check that out!


Cryptids Guide Part 5

I’ve finished the fifth part to the video guide I’m making for Cryptids Island, and I’m working on the sixth part.  So close to being finished!

Anyway, the video is below.  Also, remember that you can always check out the Video Guides page to see the other video guides that I’ve made.

Hope you like the video!

Cryptids Guide Part 4

I’ve finished the fourth part of my video guide to Cryptids Island!  And, no, I wouldn’t be surprised if I had to make at least ten videos to finish the guide.

Anyway, the video’s below.  If you have any suggestions, questions, thoughts, etc. just let me know in the comments!

Cryptids Guide Part 3

Hi peeps!

Okay, so I’ve decided to quit calling the video guides I’ve been making “the Dream Slideshows”.  I’m just going to stick with video guides.  Just so that you don’t get jealous that I have a dream slideshow and you don’t.

Anyway, here’s the newest part to the guide to Cryptids Island.

As you have probably guessed, there’s going to be at least one more slideshow for Cryptids Island.  Something tells me that this is going to need a lot of videos…

Oh, and don’t forget that you can always look at the Video Guides page to see the video guides that I’ve made.  I’ll put the new ones there, so make sure you keep checking back!

The Second Dream Slideshow

Note: This post is sticky.  Scroll down to see more posts.

So, as you may already know, I’m making some video guides for this blog.  Though they’re not exactly videos.  They’re technically slideshows.  Amazing slideshows, that is.  That’s why I’ll be referring to them as the “Dream Slideshows”.

Anyway, the first Dream Slideshow was the first part of a guide to Cryptids Island.  And I have now finished the second part of the guide to Cryptids Island!  Here it is:

As you’ve probably guessed, this isn’t all there is to the guide.  I’m going to start working on the third part to the guide real soon, so check back!

Edit: I’ve added a page called Video Guides, so whenever I publish a new Video Guides, I’ll put it on that page.

A New Guide With A New Style

Note: This post is sticky.  Scroll down to see more posts.

So, I wanted to add some more, better guides here.  My original thought was to add video guides along with the written walkthroughs.  Well, then I realized that that wouldn’t work, because all of the software that I have don’t do good videos, and I don’t have the kind of money that it takes to buy software that does make good videos.  So, I thought to myself, what’s better than written walkthroughs?  Well, walkthroughs with pictures would be better.  But, some of our guides already have pictures on them, and it would be pointless to rewrite an entire walkthrough just to add pictures.  So, I needed something in between walkthroughs with pictures and video walkthroughs.  Something that I could do along with the normal walkthroughs.

So, what would that be?

What about a slideshow?  Not just any slideshow, though.  A slideshow with both pictures and words.  A slideshow with amazing graphics and transitions.  A slideshow with maybe a little background music.  The dream slideshow.

Well, prepare yourself to see the dream slideshow come to life.

And what better way to start a whole new series of dream slideshows than by starting with my favorite island: Cryptids Island.  So, scroll on down to see part one of the guide to Cryptids Island!  Oh, and sorry about being sort of cheesy, I was just having fun.

Oh, and for simplicity, we will either refer to these guides as the dream guides or as the video guides, even though it’s more of a slideshow than a video.

Note: the dream slideshow does have a few little problems.  Like the fact that the pictures don’t stay up for very long.  This is only part one of the guide, so all that will be fixed in part two.  I was still learning how to use the software when I made the video.

Let me know what you think of it!  I hope you liked it!  If you have any suggestions, questions, or something to say about the video (like that you thought that it was the most amazing thing EVER), just leave a comment!

I’ll be finishing the second part to the walkthrough real soon, and I’ll do a post when I’m done.

Two in One!

Two updates in one!

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?

Cryptids Island Trailer and a Bigfoot Buddy!

Just in case you didn’t know, Cryptids Island will come out to non-members on January 17, 2011.  Here is a cool trailer that is on the Cryptids Island Info Page.


Also, here is a post from Master Mime, telling about a new costume that is in the Poptropica Store, called Bigfoot Fanatic.

My Bigfoot Buddy

My new Bigfoot buddy goes everywhere I go.

Right now we are gazing at a lovely shrub that is in the shape of the Loch Ness Monster. You can go pick up a small, furry friend like mine at the store. Look for the Big Foot Fanatic outfit.

He is the perfect thing to keep your head warm when you search for the Yeti in the cold, mountain blizzards.

The Bigfoot Fanatic Costume costs 100 credits, so I would only get it if I was a member, or if I really loved Bigfoot.

Give it up for… the first ten finishers of Cryptids Island!

*claps* These are the first ten finishers of Cryptids Island! It’s too bad I’m not one of them, because I know Purple Snowball, and I finished a few minutes after he did! Ah, well, maybe next island. I even camped out since 12:00 A.M.! But unfortunately, it didn’t come out until 3:00 P.M. my time.

Do you believe in the Jersey Devil?

Know Your Cryptids: Jersey Devil

Jersey Devil: What’s its situation?

Cryptids Island is here! Before you take on some of the world’s most fearsome mythical monsters, we’d like to tell you a little bit about the legends.

They say that in the deepest, darkest woods of New Jersey’s Pine Barrens, Mother Leeds was about to give birth to her 13th child. “Let it be a devil!” she cried in exasperation. When the baby was born it sprouted wings and horns, and flew off into the night.

Since then, sightings of the “Jersey Devil” have persisted throughout southern New Jersey. Footprints, unearthly howls, even direct sightings have been reported. A naval commander once fired a cannonball at a strange creature he thought to be the Jersey Devil, to no effect.

Today, tales of the Jersey Devil are largely dismissed, and the creature itself is thought of as a joke. It even inspired the name of an ice hockey team, the New Jersey Devils. But there are still those who claim they can hear the beast’s eerie wail in the night…

Do you believe in the Jersey Devil?
