Happy holidays from Poptropica!
2015 wasn't half-bad either! If you missed any of the big happenings on Poptropica this year, let's catch you up.
Arabian Nights: Lair of Thieves came out for everyone, and Galactic Hot Dogs Island came out for Members! We also opened up Poptropica Realms for everybody!
We debuted the first volume in our graphic novel series, Poptropica: Mystery of the Map. (And you can pre-order the physical edition now!) That month, all players could enjoy Galactic Hot Dogs Island.
Tons of new features arrived on Poptropica Realms: new powers, new characters, and environmental effects. March also saw the arrival of the final episode of PoptropiCon: Reign of Omegon.
A huge update to the Poptropica app introduced true multiplayer to the mobile game. We also enjoyed putting together this year's April Fool's Day prank.
Mystery of the Map Island hit the scene. We also announced the Poptropica Hall of Fame, which gave five lucky players permanent spots on Main Street of some of our most popular Islands!
For the first time, Poptropica Members could share their Realms with other players, Plus, we gave hard-working Poptropicans a long overdue raise, tripling the number of credits for finishing an Island.
Wishes were granted when the third and final episode of Arabian Nights: Careful What You Wish For arrived. We also gave away credits and prizes with the first-ever Daily Pop-In Prizes.
A playable preview of Timmy Failure Island showed up, rolling out new prizes and giveaways every week. The Home Island also came to Web in August -- and we've got big plans for it in the year to come!
Our 8th birthday -- can you believe it? Plus, the Photo Booth debuted, and the Poptropica app came out for Amazon Kindle devices.
The Halloween Photo Booth Challenge, the first of hopefully many such events, brought us some incredibly inspired creations from Poptropicans. Also in October came one of our most requested app features: importing your look from Web.
The biggest giveaway in Poptropica's history kicked off: the Island Hopper Sweepstakes! Time is running out to enter this mind-blowing sweepstakes, so get to it!
Escape From Pelican Rock is one of the most unique and ambitious Islands we've ever made, and Early Access to it is available now. It'll become available to everybody next Wednesday, December 30!
Whew! When you look at it that way, we've earned a little break.
We'll see you all in 2016. Thank you for making 2015 another year to remember on Poptropica!
