Create Your Dream Island runner-up #1
We've announced the grand-prize winner of the Create Your Dream Island contest. To read about the winning entry, Arabian Nights Island, click here.
We're also featuring the 10 runners-up, in alphabetical order. Today's runner-up is:
Bikes Vs. Boards Island, submitted by Tori V. of Texas!
The pitch: Poptropicans try to stop the constant fighting between the bikers and surfers before anyone gets hurt.
Why we liked it: Tori's Island idea had a great setting -- a beach in the 1960s -- and lots of fun ideas for gameplay. (Who wouldn't want to surf and ride a motorcycle?) We also liked the message about helping two rival groups to understand that their differences aren't as important as what they have in common.
Poptropica Creators: How did you come up with the idea for your Island?
Tori: I got the idea from a movie I was watching that day.
Poptropica Creators: How did you react when you found out you’d won?
Tori: So excited...I like winning things!
Poptropica Creators: How long have you been playing Poptropica?
Tori: A couple of years :D
Poptropica Creators: Which Island is your favorite?
Tori: Reality TV Island.
Poptropica Creators: What 3 things would you want with you on a deserted island?
Tori: A working helicopter, a pilot, and a hammock (for before the helicopter takes us back to the mainland).That's smart thinking, Tori. No wonder you're a runner-up in the Create Your Dream Island contest!
