Update

There has been one major change to Icy Comet’s Blog.  That change is Popular Jumper isn’t part of Icy Comet’s Blog anymore.  She was a wonderful author, and I know that everyone will miss her.

Winter’s Rest for The Creators

The Creators are resting until 2011!! They will be back next year with awesome islands!!

The Creators settled in for a long winter’s nap

Seasons greetings, Poptropicans! Now that the holidays are here, most of the Poptropica creators will be taking a little time off to rest and recharge. When the new year arrives, we’ll be even more excited to make lots of new Islands and adventures for you to enjoy in 2011.

No matter where you are in the world, or what holidays you celebrate, we wish you a wonderful holiday season and a happy new year. We’ll meet back here in January!

Jingle Balls, Jingle Balls, New Jingle Balls in Store

Today I found a new Jingle Bell Ornament. It comes in 3 colors: Red, Blue, and Green. It only costs 75 credits, for newbies, they’ll afford right away!! Merry Christmas!!!!

Here is the Post I Found…

Have a ball this holiday season

There’s a new costume available in the Poptropica store, and it’s totally FREE!

Spread holiday cheer by dressing up as a shiny ornament, in your choice of colors. We hope to see you decking the halls of your favorite Poptropica common room!

Later (March 2011) it would be 75 credits, but it’s free for everyone right Now!!

Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!! 😀

Shy Sword is now Leader of Canyons and Great at Style!!

I just saw a page about shy sword!! It says he is good at alot of games and good at Style!! If you play Canyon Defense on Poptropica, you might see Shy Sword!!

Leader of the pack

One of the cool new features in Daily Pop is the high score list. Each game displays the Poptropican with the highest score for the day, the week, and the month. Periodically, we’ll be featuring some of the high scorers here in the blog, too.

As of this writing, your monthly leader in Canyon Defense is:

Shy Sword! Congratulations, Shy Sword. That’s a lovely outfit you’re wearing, if you don’t mind our saying.

The month has barely begun, so there’s still plenty of time for you to beat Shy Sword’s score and put your own name in lights for all to see.

You are free to tell us if you know him.

Popular Poptropica: Google likes them

I saw a post about google liking Poptropica. They (facebook,twitter,myspace,etc.) would Follow, Like, Add and etc. Poptropica. It would probably hold the record of “Most Liked Internet Game”.

You like us! You really like us!


Google just released their most popular search terms for 2010, and we were number 5 in video game searches! Thanks to all the Poptropicans for making Poptropica such a fantastic site! We’re planning a LOT more for 2011. More islands, more games, more store items!

By the time it gets awesomer and awesomer, It will go from #5 to #1 in favorite games.

Comment and tell Jeff Kinney, the creator of DOAWK and Poptropica below!! I will send this to Jeff Kinney.

Thank you all for making Poptropica the AWESOMEST GAME EVER!!!!!!!!!!!

Get to know Daily Pop Collection

I thought it would be a good idea to make a collection of the Daily Pop.

 

Getting to know Daily Pop: Sneak Peeks

The last, and most exciting, part of Daily Pop is what we’re calling “Sneak Peeks.” This is the place to see exclusive looks at upcoming Islands, as well as behind-the-scenes looks at existing Islands, costumes, and more. From the earliest sketches to the final art, you can get an inside look at the Creators’ creative process.


Just as with games and comics, you can rate every sneak peek from one to five stars. We want to know what you think!

One last word about all the new features: No matter where you are — whether you’re on Daily Pop, in the Poptropica Store, or on the “welcome back” page — clicking the golden blimp icon in the upper-right part of the screen will take you directly back to your Island quest.

Enjoy!

Getting to know Daily Pop: Games

Yesterday, we showed you how to access the Daily Pop. Today, we’ll look at the games section.

Click the “games” link to access the full menu of games from our friends at Miniclip. There’s something for everybody!

Once you start playing a game, you can rate it from one to five stars. You’ll also see which of your fellow Poptropicans are atop the leaderboards, with the top scores from the day, from the week, and from the month.

If you’re not one of the lucky leaders, you can still see your own all-time high score displayed right above the game. Er… don’t make fun of my score on this game. It was a practice round.

Getting to know Daily Pop: Comics

We’re very excited about the response so far to the new features on Poptropica, especially the Daily Pop. If some of you haven’t had a chance to check it out yet, we thought we’d give you a brief guide to all the new stuff you can do.

First, when you log onto your Poptropica account, you’ll see this screen. (You’ll need to have a saved username and password in order to use this section!)


From this page, you can jump back into your game, or check out some of the featured content we’re sharing that we think you’ll enjoy.

The link for the Daily Pop is that exploding “POP” icon in the upper right.


The first section that loads is comics. There are nine strips that you can choose to read, each updated daily.


When you’re reading a comic, you can rate it on a scale of 1-5 stars.


This helps us to know what comics Poptropicans are enjoying the most!

If you want to,comment below and tell me what you think. If you prefer separate, go to Icy Comet, Super Thunder, and Nessabc.

Not Hiring Any More Authors

Hi peoples!

I’ve decided that I don’t want to hire any more authors at the moment.  I’ll let you know when I’ll start hiring again.  Also, Scary Shell is going to replaced with Popular Jumper.  Don’t worry, it is the same person, just a different wordpress account.  Also, I’m going to end the contest in a few days, I’m not sure what day.  I will let you know a day or two before the contest ends.  If no one submits their video by that day, I will just save the contest for sometime later in the year or next year.  That is all for right now.
