Survival 2: Hook, Line & Sinker is NOW AVAILABLE! 🎣🗺
Have you given some thought to the returning mystery episode? Is it Ep. 3 of Arabian Nights or PoptropiCon? Perhaps the second chapter for Survival or Mission Atlantis will reappear? Let’s get on with the big reveal!
Without further ado, the latest island conversion to Haxe is… Survival Island, Episode 2: Hook, Line & Sinker!! 🎣
AAAAAND no need to wait any longer! Episode 2: Hook, Line, and Sinker is NOW AVAILABLE to members on both desktop and mobile!
So you've made it through the first leg of your survival journey. Now what? Don’t get too comfortable adventurer, you’ve still got a ways to go. Continue traversing the frozen Yukon and take extra care to stay warm! Can you collect the resources you need to stay alive? 🥶
NICE!!! this is a great island poptropica, thankyou, keep up the work!
It's devastatingly sad that you continue to lock your content behind a paywall. The more recent islands, including the Survival Island pentalogy and other episodic islands, were not developed on the old code and should be free for everyone to play in a timely fashion. I implore the developers to release islands more frequently or alternatively remove the paywall for those who cannot or are unwilling to pay for a membership. Keep content like this for such a nostalgic game trapped behind a paywall is ludicrous, especially when it's content that was already running perfectly fine. Poptropicon 2 has been out for almost FOUR months. Four. That is a third of the year of 2022 that it has been out exclusively for players with a membership.
Fix the problem, or you'll continue to lose your loyal fanbase.
Wow!! Yayyy!! Hook Line and Sinker is now available! That headline gets me so excited!
Until you tell me it’s for members only.
You couldn’t have said that in the headline? You had to get everyone sooo excited…
But like, EVERY island you brought back is for members only. Seriously, open some up already. It used to be there was only a month for members only when an island was released or rereleased. Islands like Atlantis or Arabian Nights 2 have been hiding behind a paywall for over 4 months. Like, dude. Why rerelease an island if it’s gonna be members only for eternity?
i have stopped hating u poptropica!
anonymous is back on your side!
but a little sad it says "members only"...!
bruh thats not me dont roleplay other people
thanks? I mean, i'm sure this took a TON of work, so thank you to all the people working on this!
but i'm also kinda sad
because i'm not a member
soooo that's fun
huh didn't see that coming /hj
Hi! I was just wondering, but I sent in a guest post many times and it isn't on here, and I sent it a while ago. Not trying to sound impatient, although it probably sounds that way. I was wondering if Poptropica got it.
Hey there Pink Crush! Can you provide an alternate email? The email address you sent isn't able to receive out of network messages and the response is returned undelivered. Sorry for the trouble!
Are. you. KIDDING. ME!? You bring back 13 old islands, great! Oh right you have to buy them. You bring back another original island, wow awesome! Oh right, Its MEMBER. I sware to god I'm just going to quit. Are you serious poor topics telam?! That is so unfair. You have to be a member for everything (with the exception of secret of the jade scarab) and that is so annoying. I really hoped you guys would do anything free instead of trying to get money for players being members.
In short I am mad at the poptropica team. I'm just going to quit because clearly all they want is money.
ahhh seriously??? you release an island and make it members only AGAIN….
at least make one of the other islands available to all players.
i love poptropica, but this is getting really annoying.
could you possibly add SOS island next? thank you/
i get that yall need money but all this stuff for members only is lame and its irritating
Once again imploring the Poptropica developers to release Poptropicon 2 for all players; it should be locked behind a paywall when years and years prior membership access lasted for only a month or so before islands were open for everyone to play. It's been almost four months. It's long overdue to be released.
Hey, you know something refreshing I'd like to see? How about the original islands back? Bet you never heard that one!
Yeah, because you block out all negative feedback from your players, even if it might actually improve the game.
Dev team really shoulder consider removing the members-only requirement for islands that were already running perfectly fine without flash. Poptropicon 2 has been locked behind membership for almost four months. This is getting ridiculous.
Yay! oh wait it is only for members
Are you kidding me??!?
There are some people who don't have that much money to be paying Poptropica like this!
I might just quit the game because this is getting ridiculous. :(
We can't wait for new islands for literally 4 months!
We could probably just be playing some Club Penguin!
People who don't have memberships are devastated because the old islands are not available for them.
guys look I'm trying to give you the benefit of the doubt here. Maybe the blog doesn't get looked at by the actual creators anymore, or maybe they're working on a huge surprise, or maybe Poptropica REALLY needs funding right now. I'm TRYING to tell myself the devs want the best for this game, but... I'm starting to feel sour about this, like some other commentors I could name.
Look, it's a kid's game. Kids don't have money. You're trying to make it a game locked behind a paywall for the only people who can't pay?
Parents don't want to spend extra money on games in times like these. Look at all the chaos going on. You really think parents want to pay for a watered-down game right now?
I'm giving you second chances, I'm waiting for the day you'll bring it all back. Just saying... it's taking a long time. Cut your losses while you can.
THANK YOU. FINALLY.
I'm not even sarcastic about that. Thanks for changing your mind.
However, maybe an apology is in order for a certain person you were criticizing before about not liking Poptropica's current game...
I thought they would wait a for a while before they would start releasing islands for everyone, but it's been around 5 months.
So, I feel bad that the creators are receiving all these hate comments. It's not that the players aren't right . . . hm.
Well, at least you guys are generating all this money from people leaving an enormous amount of comments on the site. (maybe that's the REAL reason the islands aren't free?!)
(sorry if this comment seems over the top or unnecessary, I'm a writer and I feel like I have to comment on my fan theories :) and my mind felt it had to think up a reason for why all these islands aren't available to non-memebers because I too feel a little left out :(
I look forward to seeing more updated versions of the episodes. Keep up the good work!
Why hasn't the game released on Steam yet? It is the release date and it still isn't available. Been waiting all day. Please release it, I want to play with those old islands that came with it.
STOP FREAKING MAKING POPTROPICA A PAY-TO-WIN GAME!!! THAT'S WHY THIS GAME IS DYING!!!
For the steam game is cost 19.99 that is the same amount for membership for every 6 months.
I know everyone else is also saying this, but if you dont stop making every island members only,then people will stop playing and you will lose most of your playerbase.
HEY CREATORS! HOW ABOUT YOU JUST GET MORE ADVERTISEMENTS INSTEAD OF PUTTING EVERY FLIPPING THING BEHIND A PAYWALL!!! THAT’S A WAY TO MAKE MONEY! BY THE WAY, TELL MR. KRABS TO STEP DOWN AND LET SOMEONE ELSE TAKE CONTROL OF THE COMPANY!
Lay off of them, though I am fed up too
Can you please release some of the old islands for all players? because we've been waiting for 4 whole months and this is getting ridiculous
Like, why would you promise old islands back and disappoint us with newer AS3 islands? How hard is it to understand we want OLD OLD islands??
Well, poptropica has to make money somehow so that we can get the good stuff back right?
Even though they aren't releasing much stuff for non members, it's a good thing they released them at all. It could have been how it was last year, when they were busy with side quests and animations no one wanted and everyone despised. But now, the creators are making a change for us. We would be mean to keep hating them now they are bringing the old stuff back.
Good work poptropica on the old islands
I agree, but they are going to lose fans and I am getting tired of losing the old islands. It seems cruel to give them back and only let you have them if you pay.
are you kidding me?like for real at least dont keep it only available to members only for a long time i have not played poptropica because there are no islands for me to play do you think of those that are tight on money and refuse to waste it on a game?!!
WHYYY do you make everything for members/?? Like I know u need money but I think u have enough now because EVERYTHING IS MEMBERSS!!!! LIKE do you want to make people happy or do you only want MONEY? Thinking of quitting Poptropica.. yup
Can you get poptropicon 2 and other islands out for non-members. I really want to play the card game in poptropicon 2!
Oh yes, remove a NONMEMBER episode island, only to return it behind member paywall when it was FREE beforehand. What’s the point of bringing it back when the majority can’t play it?
I was wondering when the winners for the costume contest will be announced?
Please let me know ASAP!
The Baron is set to return to Home Island next week with the new contest winner!
Poptropica, if you need money so bad, why not just use some of my suggestions:
1. Release the islands you brought back to ALL players, so more people will return to the game (because let's be real, no one's gonna play a game where all the good, hard islands are behind a paywall.)
2. Put an option on Home Island to watch and play ads for credits (You already do that with prizes, but more people are gonna want credits to buy their own costumes than a default costume you get when you play. Or you can do both credits and ad costumes.)
3. Make the Steam package free, but you have to pay for small details like bonus quests. Or you could rotate which islands are members only and which ones aren't.
4. Hold a limited-time discount on memberships so more people buy it.
5. Make it so, for a limited time, members get a 10% discount on all items in the store.
Doing any of these things will bring in money while at the same time satisfying players. I'm offering you legit solutions to problems, so don't ignore them.
Dear Poptropica, I am a loyal Poptropica fan and I love how you are re-releasing the old islands. But some fans are not members, including me. We may not have money to pay for a membership or may just choose not to pay. Several islands have already been re-released. When we see that an island has been re-released, we all get our hopes up until we realized that the island is only for members. I've been patient. I know it is tough for you to undertake bringing back your old islands. But I am getting tired of waiting for old islands that I have to pay for, and I think other fans agree with me. I have memorized how to beat every single non-member island, and it is just getting boring. Could we have just a FEW old islands back to the public? Yours truly, Greedy Melon.
