Land Ho! A Sneak Peek into Home Island’s Newest Visitors! 👀 🛳

Hey there, everybody! What’s new with you?

 

Poptropica HQ is in a whirlwind as the team prepares to launch some of the top-secret projects that have been in the pipeline. There will be plenty of exciting news coming your way in the next few weeks! 

 

While we can’t share everything in the works just yet, we’re thrilled to announce the upcoming arrival of The Baron and her airship, that are preparing to make landfall on Home Island very, very soon! The Baron’s reappearance is certainly a welcome one! Do you remember where we first encountered them in Poptropica? How time flies! 🛫

 

It's a bird! It's a plane! It's the Baron!
It's a bird! It's a plane! It's the Baron!

 

The soon to be released features provide an enhanced, communal space for players to interact amongst one another, play additional games to stock up on credits, and includes an exclusive, limited time storefront! 

 

The airship boasts an airborne store, affectionately dubbed “The Baron’s Cabin of Curiosities” – but this isn’t just any ol’ store though. No sir! Players can visit The Baron’s Cabin of Curiosities to check out exciting, new item inventories, enjoy a blast from the past by accessing previous store items that have been tucked away in Poptropica’s vaults, and purchase the winning outfits from each month’s costume contests for free! 🎉 🎉 

 

Yep, you heard that right. The winning costume contest designs will be made available to ALL PLAYERS FOR FREEEEEEEEEEE!! 

 

You won’t want to miss out on this one, Poptropicans. The visiting vessel will be accessible for a limited time only each month, so be on the lookout for any new updates! Can you think of a more perfect place to be sharin’ with the Baron?! We hope you’re as excited about the newest addition to Home Island as we are!

 

We’ll keep you updated with more sneak peeks and previews about our eagerly anticipated guests. Keep your eyes glued to the horizon, you won’t want to miss out! What do you think about the upcoming vessel headed for Home Island? Let us know in the comments below! 👀👇

The Adventures of Ruby logo

 

Yo, what's up fans! It's ya gal PegaKid Studios Official here with Muddy Kid, my avatar – you can call her Ruby! I have a webcomic for the Popcommunity.

 

Every month, I will post a panel or two on this blog. The webcomic focuses on Ruby's life, from start to how she got her blimp and started her adventures through the world, and even her most heartwarming and hilarious moments!

 

Without further ado, here is the first panel. The very beginning of a hero.

 

The Adventures of Ruby - by Muddy Kid

 


 

“Aaaand here we go! Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Kidlot, it’s a girl!"

 

“'Aaaand here we go! Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Kidlot, it’s a girl!'

'Aw, isn’t she the sweetest?'"

 

So, what should we name her?

 

"'So, what shall we name her?'”

 

"I’m thinking Mary. Or Willow. They sound lovely.”

 

"'I’m thinking Mary. Or Willow. They sound lovely.'”

 

“How about Rose? Like the time we took a walk through the rose garden!”

 

“'How about Rose? Like the time we took a walk through the rose garden!'”

 

"We shall call her Ruby"

 

"'Actually... I'm thinking of a name which could make her something valuable and important to our family. Her eyes are as bright as the stars, as bright as the gift you wanted to propose to me, to create a relationship and a happy family.

 

A ring with a bright red gem.

 

We shall call her ruby.'

 

'Ruby... Love that name.'"

 


 

Please join us in giving Muddy Kid a round of applause! Congratulations on your first installment of The Adventures of Ruby webcomic! 👏

Guest Blog: Golden Wolf 🐺💛

Hi! This is my first guest writer post! My name is Golden Wolf.

 

Well, as my first post, I want to share a little Poptropica hack with you guys. If you are wondering how to change your hair color, hop (no pun intended) on your blimp and go to 24 Carrot island. Then you are going to go to Carrot King Diner.

 

24 Carrot King Diner

 

Then walk over to the drink counter.

You are going to click on the drinks and mix colors to get the exact hair dye you want. Then click Drink!

Feel free to get creative! And that’s all there is to it! Thank you for reading my post!

New Candy Crazed Mini Quest BTS Look and Walkthrough! 🤩

HELLOOOOO all you guys, gals, and non-binary pals!

 

Have you had a chance to play the new Candy Crazed mini quest?! Poptropica’s newest addition reimagines the story of Hansel and Gretel – they are the ones wreaking havoc on the Candy Palace, Little Witchy, Nanny, and Master Huggles! How the tables have turned…

 

The mini quest is replayable, so it’s a great way to earn easy credits! Especially with the launch of the new character screen, it’s the perfect time to stock up on credits to buy items in the store! 😉

 

We’re back with more behind the scenes looks into the design of the characters in the opening scene, Little Witchy’s Candy Palace, and the Treat Tower that Hansel and Gretel are entrapped! Following the introductory comic, you’re transported to the Candy Palace, where you’re surrounded by all the characters: Little Witchy, Master Huggles (sans leg), Nanny, Gumdrop Pup, and Gummy. It’s glucose galore! Candy, chocolate, cakes, cookies, and more! Is anyone else drooling just looking at it?!

 

Candy Crazed Characters

 

At the top of the Treat Tower, the ravenous rascals are surrounded by portraits of Little Witchy, Nanny, and Gumdrop Pup. This is the end of the gumdrop trail! Starting from the bottom, you must collect all 100 gumdrops in order to set Hansel and Gretel free.

 

Treat Tower Portraits

 

But the sweetest look into the Candy Crazed mini quest is the design itself! The Treat Tower is decorated with plenty of luxurious desserts at each level, each with their own trampoline to let you bounce higher and higher! Little Witchy’s whimsical aesthetic mirrors the original, enchanted fairytale, despite Poptropica’s own twix on Hansel and Gretel’s adventure.

Pop Culture Update: Sneak Peek at the New Character Screen! 👀

Hello Poptropicans! Pop HQ has been hustling and bustling lately! We have a few special projects in the works that we’ve been anxiously awaiting the green light to share with you! And finally, it’s go time.

 

Tomorrow (yes, TOMORROW), we are launching a brand new character screen!! 🎉 🎉

 

Character Screen

 

 

The new character screen will allow you to mix and match individual costume elements from any costume! The new character screen takes things to a whole other level. You can choose any of your costumes from your item inventory and select the desired features you’d like your Popsona to wear! Want to wear the hairstyle from one costume, a shirt from another, and the accessories from a third? Piece of cake.

 

Costume CombinationsCostume Combinations

 

But the best part might be the skin and hair modifier! Choose any color on the rainbow for your hair and skin colors! You can coordinate your Popsona’s look with your appearance irl or even to match your mood. Change your appearance at the pop of a hat and orchestrate a costume combination for any occasion! 

 

Skin Color

 

Try the color selector on your pets as well! Pair your pet friends with their own adorable costume. Ever wonder what it'd be like to have a purple or neon yellow pet? They deserve to be pampered too.

 

Pet Color

 

Choices, choices, choices.

 

On a similar note, we’ve been seeing a lot of messages and comments asking about the old costumizer feature. The costumizer was removed because we were receiving many complaints about the feature. Older players had to spend the credits to purchase a costume or they may have had a discontinued outfit from the early days that is unavailable in the store. Meanwhile, a new player would be able to instantly copy and wear the same items from any older profile, sidestepping the other player’s efforts.  Although the costumizer will not be returning to Poptropica, the upcoming unveiling of the new character screen enhances flexibility and creativity, while ensuring fairness to all players.

 

Keep an eye out for the launch of the new character screen TOMORROW, Poptropicans! As a reminder, June’s Monthly Costume Contest ends tonight at 8pm PST. Your costume design can be one of the first player costumes that can be customized with the character screen!
