From sketches to reality: How Wimpy Boardwalk came to life!

Hello Poptropicans! As you know, we're celebrating Wimpy Kid Month -- and that means our Wimpy Kid islands are the Poptropica Islands of the Month and open to everyone, not just members!

What else does it mean? BIG CREDITS. First-time finishers of our Wimpy Kid islands earn 500 credits for each island. Already completed them? No worries. Complete them again in April and you'll get 300 credits for each island!

And now, we present some exclusive, never-seen, previously super-secret Wimpy Boardwalk art! Take it away, Rodrick!

As usual, yours truly did some digging around the ol' Poptropica files to find behind-the-scenes art from the Wimpy Kid islands' development. And yes, we've got some pretty cool stuff from Wimpy Boardwalk! Check it out...

It's pretty amazing to see the work that goes on behind the scenes, isn't it? We hope you enjoyed this peek into the making of Wimpy Boardwalk!

PS: Back in December we posted some awesome animations from the development of Wimpy Wonderland. You can see them here!
