Create Your Dream Island runner-up #9

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:

Stormchaser Island, submitted by Laura S. of Virginia!

The pitch: Your Poptropican travels alongside one of Poptropica's most famous meteorologists and tracks a dangerous series of storms.

Why we liked it: "This is gold," someone said when reading Laura's entry, and nobody disagreed. What an exciting idea! In Stormchaser Island, players would travel the hemisphere trying to discover the source of increasingly powerful storms. Our sound effects team would love to take on this challenge!

We asked Laura, whose avatar name is Blue Horse, a few questions. Here are her answers!
Poptropica Creators: How did you come up with the idea for your Island?
Laura: I spent a lot of time thinking about my idea, and after a few tries, it just came to me!
Poptropica Creators: How did you react when you found out you’d won?
Laura: When I found out that I had won, my jaw dropped. Out of hundreds of entries, I had won! [Actually, it was thousands! -C.C.]
Poptropica Creators: How long have you been playing Poptropica?
Laura: I have been playing Poptropica for a few years now, and it is my favorite website! 
Poptropica Creators: Which Island is your favorite?
Laura: My favorite island has to be Spy Island, because I love all of the neat items that your character can collect.
Poptropica Creators: What 3 things would you want with you on a deserted island?
Laura: If I was on a deserted island and could only have three items, I would have:
1. A pocket knife
2. Flint and steel to create fire
3. A spile to get fresh water from trees
We hope you're enjoying Survival, in that case. Thank you for your entry, Laura!
