On the run

Sometimes we talk to people who imagine it must be great fun to work at Poptropica. Well, they’re right, but there is a downside: like having to spend hours getting chased around a carnival by creepy monsters! And you thought gym class was stressful.

You, too, will be able to face the Monster Carnival before you know it. We’ll have more Monster Carnival news to announce very soon!

As the Monster Carnival creeps ever closer, some strange things are beginning to happen to ordinary Poptropicans. But maybe that’s just because you’re messing around with the new “Hypno-Powder,” an exclusive Members-only item now available in the Poptropica Store.

With the Hypno-Powder, you can hypnotize anyone you see with just a press of the spacebar. We trust you won’t do anything irresponsible with this new ability.

New Poptropica books tomorrow!

Don’t forget that our latest non-fiction books will be released tomorrow.

Scary Monsters gives you the low down on the myths and legends behind the creatures you’ve encountered in your adventures on Cryptids Island, Vampire’s Curse Island, Zomberry Island, and more. All of these monsters have a basis in fact — and we’ll reveal them to you!

Wild West is all about the amazing true history of the American frontier. Find out what parts of Wild West Island are made up, and which are based on fact. You might be surprised to learn which is which!

Both of these books are from Amazon and other fine retailers!

The long, strange journey of Monster Carnival

Longtime Poptropicans know that Monster Carnival was supposed to be one of our earliest Islands. It was announced in 2008, and even added to the travel map with a message that said “Coming Soon.” Then it disappeared without notice.

Why?

There have been a lot of explanations over the years. Some were closer to the mark than others. Frankly, we’d like to let the conspiracy theories go on, because they’re more interesting than the truth. But it’s time we came clean.

Monster Carnival was removed from the Poptropica travel map because it wasn’t finished, and everybody was too busy with other projects to give it the attention it needed. That’s all! We really just announced it too early, got onto other things, and never came back to it.

But as Monster Carnival continued to live on in the imaginations of our players, we couldn’t let it go. What a great name! Every year, when we discussed what new Islands to make, somebody would say “Monster Carnival!” and everyone else would nod. Then we’d pick a bunch of other Islands to do instead.

Maybe we were intimidated. We all know what happens when something becomes anticipated for too long. Better to leave it as an unrealized dream, rather than risk not delivering.

Well, every dog has his day, and the same is true of a great idea for a Poptropica Island. Monster Carnival is very real this time, and we hope it is worth the wait.

I heard that the island was too scary for kids, so they got rid of it. That clown face on the Ferris Wheel = creepy.

So, have any of you got Forgotten Islands? I don’t have it, ’cause I use Android and not iOS.

Bundle up

It’s beginning to feel like the winter is never going to end. So cold! Fortunately, nothing warms me up better than a toasty sweatshirt with my gorgeous face printed on it.

You, too, can get some cold-weather gear with your face on it (or warm-weather gear, if you’re in the southern hemisphere!). Just visit the Poptropica Shop and enter your username to look at a variety of shirts customized with your Poptropican avatar and display name.

With personalized Poptropica apparel, nobody will look as good as you do — just like in the game!

Building the Land

So Poptropica released an all-new member’s only features (the Poptropica Labs), and they have gotten every single screenshot (apparently) sent by members.

It’s been just over a week since we opened up an experimental new feature for our Members to try out. Since then, thousands of people have created their own spaces on Poptropica and sent us screenshots of their work. There’s some great stuff here! We wanted to spotlight just a few.

Big Raptor built this cool launch pad, spaceship, and command center. We are ready for lift-off.

Fast Comet built a huge structure above ground, but it was the underground dungeon that caught our attention. Watch that water table!

Mad Tiger brings us this stately abode, only two gables short of being worthy of literature.

Here, Serious Bird tries to set the record for most stuff piled up in one place.

We’re loving all of it! Can’t wait to see more. If you’d like to try out the Land Prototype, become a Member today!

They did mention it was a prototype – do you think that means they’ll release it to non-members after a while too?
