Guest Post: BraveSky!

 We're back with another guest post, this time by BraveSky!


Greetings, fellow Poptropican veterans and newcomers! I am BraveSky! Things are getting better here during this time of maintenance. The Poptropica Team is cooking up a storm with renewed islands and more cool stuff underway! So, stay in tune for that! As a Poptropican veteran (13yrs strong), I have created a sonnet based on the cherished moments I made from this website. It was difficult, but I managed to put the pieces together. My mind went blank a few times like that blue loading screen filled up with vines because it was hard to choose specific ones I remembered, but that's okay. Thank you all, please enjoy!

Breaking through, out of a box; a big world of puzzles and opportunity

Seeking problems and solve them with help from Pop community

My favorite islands are guarded by coconuts and a shark

And delicious fried dough that can hypnotize you into a lark


Thousands of things you can collect in your bag with no limits, luckily

For in real life, I would regret carrying a bag so heavily

Finding objects is fun even through dark tunnels and forests

Just make sure a creature doesn’t catch you with your missing florets

From encountering art thieves, pirates, and evil geniuses

To a lonely vampire and ringmaster, defeated by their weaknesses

Amazing cutscenes and a medallion are guided by dialogue

So, you can feel accomplished on the computer and then log---

Who says Poptropica is too different; is that truly so?

Ever stop to realize we have again rooms, shoes, pets, my beautiful afro?

That sonnet was truly epic. This is what we call an epic gamer moment.

Wow... That is the power of poetry! Well Done, Brave Sky! We need more poems like that!

What exactly do you mean by "we have again rooms, shoes and pets"? Poptropica doesn't have shoes. It also hasn't had pets for very long. I'm guessing that you refer to common rooms when you say "rooms", but those have changed drastically over the years. Also, most every island has been taken off for the average free player, leaving mainly the mediocre islands for everyone. Truly, Poptropica is different. And, in my opinion, not in a good way for the most part.

While it's true that most of the islands are yet to be converted and made available for everyone, it won't stay that way forever. In these tough times of shutdown and haxe conversion, we're lucky we have Poptropica at all. We have had pets for months, and there are actually several pairs of shoes in the pop store! The hiking boots and the white combat boots are 2 big examples. And we do have rooms. They are better known to us as clubhouses. Does the quote, "we have again rooms, shoes and pets" make sense now?

poptropica has shoes you can buy in the store sometimes. There is the hiking boots, the combat boots, the roller skates, et cetera. Thus, you can buy shoes, but they are more of an accesory, not required like in poptropica worlds.

also only one island is for members only. It's time tangled

Poptropica will forever be great. one of my all time go to games on a computer or mac. I've been playing since 2009 and honestly every update to this game was amazing however one thing I hope developers put back in this game is being able to wear the medallions around our necks. And to BraveSky, hats off to you, amazing poetry
