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.

A video tour of Poptropica Labs

We found a great video by a Poptropican named “Perfect Sky” that we had to share.

Those are some impressive creations, Perfect Sky! It’s amazing how clever our players are.

Don’t miss your chance to try out the Land Protoype in Poptropica Labs. It won’t be available forever. Become a Member today!

Not a member. Kicks the air.

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?

Has anyone pointed this out?

Hi guys, Nicey here.

Has anyone noticed this? Instead of “Island Tour” next to the blimp on the Poptropica Home Page, it now says “About Poptropica”.

aboutpoptropica-1

Clicking on it will open a Youtube Video, featuring an updated version of the Poptropica Tour until Virus Hunter Island and the release of the second costume Galactic Hot Dogs advertisement.

I think the cool thing about the video is the island popping-up animation that the Creators made:

What do you think?

Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2×2

Hi guys, there are 2 Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs advertisements!

The first one is a video advertisement. After watching a video, you will receive the Barry Costume, which technically turns you red and covers your face.

Double Barry!

Double Barry!

The next advertisement is a quest advertisement. Basically, when you go in, Flint will tell you that they need help to get their boat across the foodimal seas. Anyway, you just have to click the jump button whenever a foodimal appears on the waters, or they’ll slow you down and you’ll lose if you hit too many of you. It requires a lot of fast reaction and hand-eye coordination!

After you’re finished, you receive the animated Bacon Cheeseburger hair and Steve back item (Good limited edition items to have after the advertisement is no longer in Poptropica!)

Cheespiders and Steve!

Cheespiders and Steve!

Have fun!

Islands Come and Go…but whatever goes must come back

Hi guys, Nicey here.

I know this is really late, but the thing is, I have to focus more on studying now because I have this big exam called the PSLE, which means I’ll be posting less often… sorry 😦

1st of all, Mocktropica is out for all!! EVERYONE CAN PLAY NOW! Finally 😀 My sister was really caught up on playing the Megafightingbots monitor in the university for O Captain, My Captain (she said it was a Dead Poets Society Reference because the real poem O Captain! My Captain by Walt Whitman was there) and she was almost going to win the final round (after winning the first and losing the second) and Safety Bot had like, 1mm of health and then she died D: It happened twice

Anyway, second of all, MONSTER CARNIVAL ISLAND IS THE NEXT ISLAND!! FINALLY, AFTER FIVE LONG PAINFUL YEARS OF WAITING! (Sorry.) Thanks, Creators!

The creators mentioned that “dreams do come true, then again nightmares do”. It means they finally actually LISTENED TO US! YEAH!

Now it’s just more waiting….

~Nicey

PS A new author, Silly Pelican, is going to join Poptropica Costumes Closet! I haven’t sent her the invitation yet, but I will soon once she gives me her username 😀

Tomorrow and Today

HI guys, Nicey here! I know this is late, but Mocktropica Island Bonus Quest featuring Live Megafightingbots is now out for Members! Members play now! Also note that there is less than 24 hours until the Unfinished Costume disappears from the Poptropica Store for almost, forever, so for members, don’t wait! Since the Unfinished Costume is “finishing” up, it also means that Mocktropica will be online for ALL players (16 Jan 2014)! Finally!

So for members, don’t wait! For non-members, I guess you have to wait…
