Oh How Time Flashes By

Real talk: You've been asking questions. A lot of questions. Like:

Will Poptropica will shut down in 2020? (Nope, we'll still be here!) 

Is Poptropica still a thing? (Yup, millions of people play every month!) 

Did Poptropica delete the old Islands? (Keeping them accessible for as long as we can!) 

And of course, what will happen to our old flash accounts?

Flash will no longer be supported at the end of 2020 and we've been hard at work making sure everyone can still play Poptropica once that happens. You may have heard about the Haxe version of the game, which is where all the stuff we've been able to convert is. This version of the game is constantly being optimized to make sure it works well across devices and it's where we test new features too. 

Once flash is no longer supported, your account still will be accessible. Your existing account will work in the newer version of the game. You'll keep your stuff and we'll give you a mega credit bonus so you can get to shopping on anything available that wasn't in the flash game. 

We'll give you all more information as we move further along in the conversion. We're also working on how to make sure you can play all the old islands while we continue converting them!

Counting down the days until I can relive my childhood islands once again!!! Keep up the hard work, thanks to everyone working on converting the old islands.

All the old islands are still available until flash gets shut down. Just go to Early Poptropica on the map. Sadly it is for members only. If you really want to replay them,I suggest you do it now, since the old school islands are not a priority for them to convert.

So if you just go to early poptropica all of the old islands will be available? How does this work?

Thank you guys so much for continuing to work so hard! I've been playing since I could use the computer and im 19 now lol I hope this is a game I can continue to come back to through the years <3

Same, I started playing in in the mid-late 2000's. Simpler times.

Invisible RingNovember 2, 2020 pm30 9:06 pm

The entire poptropica fan club on discord has been plotting protests and riots all week just because they didn't like the only island you guys decided to change in conversion. They even threatened to boycott if they didn't hear anything by this wednesday. It really stressed me out and I didn't know what to think and I didn't know what to blog. But this is exactly what I needed to hear. Thank you for the feedback!!

(By the way, I heard all the complaints on the new Mythology and started to get sucked into those protests, but it occured to me that I have gotten tired of the regular mythology island. Come to think of it, I might have been tired of it since I first played it, so I am looking forward to what kinds of new changes you made. It may be simpler, sure, that was the biggest complaint, but I think that it'll be better this way. It might even be more fun! And to anyone who hates my opinion on this, they can just go watch the island walkthrough and leave us alone. Most importantly, you remastered the mythology island because you've been listening to our feedbacks so thank you for continuing to listen to your loyal fans! Not everyone may have agreed with the mythology change feedbacks, but you can't please everyone. We appreciate your consideration and your effort in this!)

I especially appreciate the fact that you guys have all worked so hard to get all of our accounts over the flash-haxe bridge. With that being said, I clearly understand why Poptropica has had a lot of troubles lately with budgets and conversions and angry Poptropican mobs (sorry dimension bros and friends, I'm talking about you guys here), It was all about getting the biggest and best game in existence all the way on haxe! I knew it all along; it wasn't you guy's fault at all! It's an unbelievably hard project that none of the Poptropican mobsters could possibly understand! I don't know what's going on in their minds right now, but I BELIEVE IN YOU GUYS. The whole game is surviving from flash, and so is our accounts, our favorite islands, everything! and if I am right, the poptropica app, Poptropica Worlds, and Poptropica Realms, are all successful too! You all have done such a good job so far and you have my support as you get the rest of the project done. THANK YOU ALL! POPTROPICA IS THE BEST!

Long post is just what he does!

GokuGirl/MaroonSealNovember 4, 2020 pm30 5:11 pm

Theres a poptropica Discord? i need to join

Invisible RingNovember 4, 2020 pm30 8:47 pm

If you reaaaaaly want to join... there is a discord server called the poptropica help chat.

White foxNovember 5, 2020 pm30 5:13 pm

Yeah invisible ring always does a reeeeealy long post, get used to it

AlderNovember 2, 2020 pm30 9:15 pm

Having our flash accounts not go by the wayside is a huge relief, although that does bring up the question of when flash accounts will be compatible with haxe? Will these be after flash is gone, or after haxe is fully set up?

UnknownNovember 2, 2020 pm30 9:50 pm

The haxe version is so laggy tho...

AlderNovember 3, 2020 pm30 2:23 pm

Incredibly, hopefully they find some way to optimize it first before adding all the islands

UnknownNovember 3, 2020 am30 12:09 am

Thanks for making this great game and keeping it going for so long

AnonymousNovember 3, 2020 am30 10:24 am

That's great to hear, but I'm still waiting for the old islands to be non-member too. Can't you make that happen? I'm dying to play Ghost Island

GailNovember 7, 2020 pm30 2:27 pm

Me too!

AnonymousJanuary 13, 2021 am31 12:03 am

Same OMG! They took away all the good islands.

GokuGirl/MaroonSealNovember 3, 2020 pm30 5:18 pm

I'm so happy to hear that us older players will be able to keep our accounts.

Invisible RingNovember 5, 2020 pm30 3:23 pm

I know right? Thank you so much Poptropica!

UnknownNovember 5, 2020 pm30 5:41 pm

im happy too i can keep my flash membership account

UnknownNovember 4, 2020 pm30 12:03 pm

To the OG players 🥂

I'm glad to know that poptropica isnt going away when flash isnt there (I did hear they are going to preserve some flash games in... I think it was called "flashpoint"?)I invested so much time into this game and would've been sad to know if it was going away, I actually joined here because of diamondbolts video on it, but I was disappointed that the older islands were gone but hey, now there coming back!

Joey NigroNovember 4, 2020 pm30 2:22 pm

Can you please bring back the photo booth.

Invisible RingNovember 4, 2020 pm30 8:43 pm

I request that too! More than ever now that I actually know how to save and organize files!

Rainbow Moon StarNovember 4, 2020 pm30 5:07 pm

I'm so excited as I have been playing for over 10 years and love the classic islands. Of course, I'm excited for new islands too. Thank you creators for everything! I wish you all the best!

What do you mean? If you mean no more members only exclusives you need to be more specific because someone as gullible as I am might think you don't want actual members playing the game

Are you saying when flash shuts done the flash accounts will still run the flash way, or the accounts will still have your username and password but it will be in the haxe version of the game?

Daniel&#039;s Scoop of the DayNovember 5, 2020 pm30 9:50 pm

What about long-time fans who have already completed the classic islands? Will they have to redo the islands from the beginning?

UnknownNovember 8, 2020 pm30 1:00 pm

excuse how come the people in poptropica that arn't members don't get all the same islands for christmas is there going to have ,ore Island and how come the hoverboard stops you from entering anything like arcade tombs or even from just using stuff

UnknownJanuary 25, 2021 pm31 5:12 pm

The reason that it is members-only is the servers can only handle a limited number of people on the older islands, so that is how they chose to implement the number-restriction.

chloeNovember 13, 2020 pm30 12:25 pm

i miss the old islands!

Yellow PawNovember 20, 2020 pm30 2:14 pm

I have been playing for 6-7 years and was wondering if there was a way to transfer my flash account to the haxe version

EugeniaDecember 7, 2020 am31 3:42 am

so just to be clear my account that i've had since elementary will still work in the haxe version and I CAN GET IN TO IT?!?!?! AWESOME!!! i dont really play anymore but i do try to go on just to check in.

UnknownJanuary 25, 2021 am31 3:18 am

So the old islands are coming back? Because right now there's only like three pages and there's only like nine islands if that right now?

AnonymousJanuary 26, 2021 am31 2:11 am

Please update us on when the old islands will return! The last time I played was in 2008 & I really want to relive those memories with full experience!!! :(

UnknownJanuary 27, 2021 pm31 1:40 pm

But why can’t I download it on the App Store anymore?

AnonymousJanuary 27, 2021 pm31 7:33 pm

I have not been playing as long as others, but my friend keeps telling me about the old islands and they sound so fun! I also was playing some old islands 2 or 3 years ago, and I could not stop. Please bring them back, I know a lot more people would start playing again with the worlds coming back. Thank you. :)

Poptropica was and still is amazing. I use to play it back when I was 11, and I still play it at the age of 17. However, I don't play it as much as I use to. I might get back to it later.

AnonymousFebruary 14, 2021 pm28 2:59 pm

Is there a new island coming? I hope so...

anonymousSeptember 9, 2021 pm30 12:32 pm

if they add back any islands soon, it should be the wild west and lunar colony ones.
