What’s The Scariest Part Of Poptropica?

The Lab Is Here…

Hey everybody, sorry for not posting for a super long time.  I’ve been busy with school and the my computer broke down, so, yeah.  Anyway I’m excited to announce the newest update!

We’ve got a cool new feature to announce. We were playing around with a prototype for user-created Islands and found ourselves wondering what direction to go in.

Then we thought: who would know better than Poptropica players? That’s why we’ve just made available our first-ever Poptropica Labs project, exclusively to Poptropica Members!

This is a prototype that will let you play around with some basic tools to create your own scene in Poptropica. You can explore randomly generated scenery, place objects, and morph the landscape. Who knows? Maybe you’ll find things to do that we never even thought of.

To access it, log into your Poptropica account and click on the Poptropica Labs slide on the welcome back page.

Play around. Place scenery. Look for gold. Explore different islands. See what you can come up with. When you’re done, you can save a screenshot of your scene — and since we want to see what you’re doing, too, it’ll also send the screenshot to us!

When you leave the Poptropica Labs demo, you’ll also have a chance to take a survey. We would very much appreciate your time in filling out the survey and helping us figure out the future of this project.

We’re excited to see what you come up with!

Eat A Big Donut And Even More Island Ideas

There’s a new game on Poptropica. Try it out, but beware. Getting snacks for a friend has never been so dangerous!

Hint: To find it look for the kid with a red shirt.

Go give it a try on Zomberry Island!

Have you been procrastinating?
You thought we were joking when we said the fall would get away from you. Who’s joking now?October is almost over. Then November passes in a jiffy (only 30 days!) and we all know how December goes. But for some reason, we still haven’t gotten your entry in the Create Your Dream Island contest!

Grab your official entry from from our friends at Penguin, or in your copy of the Island Creator Kit. One lucky winner will have their Island produced on Poptropica in 2014!
