Behind the scenes of Poptropica Worlds: the new avatar!
Hello Poptropicans! Get excited because we've got a little behind-the-scenes snapshot of Poptropica Worlds for you today!
Something that has fascinated the Poptropica Creators is the reaction to a new feature of the Poptropica Worlds avatar: HANDS. Fans -- especially on YouTube -- are just so excited that their Poptropicans will have hands! (Click on the images to enlarge them.)
Given the huge interest in the Poptropica avatar design, we thought we'd give you a close-up look at how the Poptropica avatar is changing in Poptropica Worlds. Check it out:
What differences do you see?
Some key changes: The Poptropica avatar has had a growth spurt and your Poptropican will now have joints, feet, and yes -- hands. Since Poptropica Worlds is built using Unity and Spine, the avatar is more customizable than ever by both Creators and players!
The hand has four thick fingers that can be drawn in limitless poses. Each hand switches poses based on the animation the avatar is performing. Cool, huh?
We'll have more peeks into the creation of Poptropica Worlds in the upcoming weeks, so stay tuned!
