Candy + Zombies = ?

It’s very strange; the closer we get to Christmas, the closer we get to a creepy, weird, zombie-themed island.  Somehow the two just don’t fit…  Hopefully you’ll get a lot of presents to help you deal with this upcoming island.  But, before we get on with the zombie news, let’s start with something a bit sweeter.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is now out for non-members!  Are you ready to get your golden ticket and delve into a candy-lovers dream?  Prepare yourself for a crazy adventure!

If you get a little stuck along the way, don’t forget to check out our awesome Charlie and the Chocolate Factory guide, written by Samwow5.

Though it is good news, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory isn’t the main theme of this post.  More news about Zomberry Island is waiting to be told.  Let the creepiness begin!

As you probably know by now, the Creators have been releasing a series of comics telling about how Zomberry Island’s fruit-loving inhabitants got turned into zombies that would fit in nicely in a horror movie.  If you missed the first half of the series, just take a look at this post and this post to catch up.  And if you’ve already read those, take a look below to see the newest addition to Zomberry: Day Zero.

Oh, the suspense of it all!  This comic was released yesterday, so the 5th one should be released sometime later today.  Hopefully we’ll find out who on earth is in that helicopter and if Joe Puddy manages to escape from those zombies.

If you’re a member, you can have a little fun with some new items while you’re waiting for the next comic to be released.  If you guessed that the Zomberry Island gear is now out, then you are correct!

The items that you get are the Big Blue power, the ZMB Unit costume, and the Safety Flare item.

First up, the Big Blue power!

Big Blue power

When you put on the big blue power, prepare yourself for a shock.  Your Poptropican will turn into one of those oversized zombies.

Very attractive, isn’t it?

Now, onto the Safety Flare item.

Safety Flare item

When you use the Safety Flare item, a flare will go into your hand.  When you press the SPACEBAR, your Poptropican will put down one of these flares, making a reliable, red light.

And last, but most certainly not least, the ZMB Unit costume.

Use the ZMB Unit costume to turn your once-normal Poptropican into a tough Poptropican who’s ready for anything.

That about wraps it up for this zombie-packed post.  Non-members, go out and have some delicious fun in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and members, go prepare yourselves to face some monsters.  Check back for more news!  Also, I’m currently working on a post about sneak peeks in Daily Pop, so that should come out real soon!  😀

…And, of course, right as I finish this post as was prepared to get my Poptropican out of the ZMB Unit costume, Poptropica stops working on me and won’t let me log back in due to maintenance.  Hopefully this doesn’t mean that we won’t be able to play for awhile…

Zomberry: Day Zero, The Third Comic

You might already know about how the Creators are releasing a series of comics telling about how the disaster on Zomberry Island all began.  Two have already been released, and the third was released yesterday.

Take a look!

It looks like the Poptropicans are already starting to turn into zombies at the end of the comic.  It looks like the smoothies are possibly the cause of this nightmare…

Hopefully we’ll find out more real soon!

Zombie Stuff Galore, Provided By Zomberry Island

(First off, I want to say sorry for not posting in awhile.  I know, I know, I really need to quit not posting, it’s just that life keeps getting in the way.  Hopefully I can really mean it when I say that I’m going to try really hard to start posting more often.  I want to thank my awesome authors for keeping this blog pretty much updated while I was gone.  You guys rock! :D)

The weather’s gotten colder, snow’s started falling on the blogs, Christmas music is playing on the radio, beautiful lights sparkle on the Christmas trees, all while Poptropicans are getting ready for a Zombie/Fruit themed island.

The newest island has been announced (check out this post)!  This island’s trouble seems to be one of the weirdest of all.  Instead of normal things like crazy rabbits or ghosts, we have to deal with a city that has had an outbreak of Poptropicans-turned-zombies.  Very, very weird.

A couple of treats are out for all the zombie-lovers out there.  The first one is two printable posters from the Zomberry Island info-page.

Get your Zomberry Island printable posters!

We’ve whipped up a couple of Zomberry Island posters for your printing pleasure. Here’s a look at them both:

To download the hi-res, printable versions of these posters, visit the all-new Zomberry Island info page!

You’ll also find more info about the storyline, bonus quest, and other great extras.

The “you are what you eat” poster gave me an idea about how the Poptropicans turned into zombies.  Maybe, some evil villain somehow snuck a bunch of fruit into the city, and the Poptropicans ate them.  The fruit had something on it or in it that ended up turning the Poptropicans into zombies.  I know, it’s not the best idea in the world, but, somehow, with an island like this it doesn’t seem too unlikely.

On closer inspection, you can see all the writing at the bottom of the “you are what you eat” poster is like the writing on a movie poster.  Here’s a picture.

Zomberry Island

Do you recognize any names?  I bet the names in the “starring” section are some of the characters in Zomberry Island.  I can’t wait to see what these stars look like.

Anyway, the second treat is two comics promoting Zomberry Island.  According to the Creators, they will be telling about how this outbreak began.  And reading this is probably how I got my “idea” about how the Poptropicans turned into zombies…

Last but not least, I thought that I would do my usual little bit about the info-page.  So, here we go!

Zomberry Island Picture #1

First off the description of the island.  Now, normally, I would put up a picture of the description and then write the description underneath it.  But, WordPress has gone and changed on me.  Whenever I try to add a picture, it ends up at the top of the page.  So, I’m going to try and keep the pictures to a minimum.  Anyway, I’m just going to write the description this time.

One by one, the citizens of Eastman are mutating into something horrible.  Now, the city is quarantined, the survivors are trapped, and ghouls prowl the streets.  No one knows how the zombie outbreak began…but how it ends is up to you!

And, just like all of the recent islands, this island has a members-only bonus quest.  Here’s the description for the quest.

The zombie threat has been contained, but more danger lurks beneath the streets of Eastman.  To prevent an even greater outbreak, you’ll need to venture into the sewers with only a flashlight…and your wits!

…I’m not sure what to think about that one…  Everything sounded great until it got to the sewer part.  I don’t know if I want to spend the holidays exploring a sewer…

Along with the bonus quest, members get a special Zomberry Island gear pack.

Zomberry Island Picture #3

The pack is made up of the Big Blue power, the ZMB Unit costume, and the Safety Flare item.  Anyone who wants the ZMB costume, remember that it is only available during the early release time, so make sure that you have membership!

You already saw the two downloadable posters from the info-page in the Creators’ post above, but you haven’t seen the downloadable wallpaper yet.  So, without further ado, take a look!

Zomberry Island Picture #4

It looks pretty cool…if you like zombies, that is…

Last but not least, the info-page has some pictures of Zomberry Island.  So, why don’t you take a look at them?

That’s it for now.  I hope you enjoyed this little zombie-fest-of-a-post!  Hopefully there will be more news about this somewhat creepy island soon!  I have nothing left to say except happy early holidays, merry Christmas, and make sure you listen to plenty of Christmas music!
