S.O.S. ISLAND IS OUT FOR EVERYONE!

The title says it all. S.O.S. Island is for all to play!

When a whale-watching expedition strikes an iceberg, a pleasure cruise becomes a disaster scene. As the ship sinks deeper and deeper into the frigid waters of the North Atlantic, can you rescue everyone onboard before it’s too late?

Awesome, right? Well, in other news, the next island has been announced…

 

For centuries, a truce has existed between the people of a remote mountain village, and the vampire who lives in the castle high above. Now, that truce is shattered, and Count Bram has captured a young villager. Can you rescue her from his evil clutches — and avoid being struck by the vampire’s curse?Vampire's Curse Bonus Quest

And then a bonus quest…

S.O.S. Island Bonus Quest

 

Poptropica Members can play a bonus quest after completing Vampire’s Curse Island. The vampire is gone, but his curse lives on. Prepare to discover even more hidden secrets of Bram’s castle — if a dangerous vampire hunter doesn’t get there first!

Vampire's Curse Island Members Only ItemsS.O.S. Members Only Items
Members get an additional Vampire’s Curse Island gear pack, which includes Garlic Breath, Bat Gum, and Vampire Count and Countess Costumes. The Vampire Costumes are ONLY available during Early Access!

 

 

Be prepared for awesomeness!

“Monster” themed island

We all remember what Monster Carnival is, right? Well, it looks like the next island will be somewhat similar. The Daily Pop sneak peeks are showing monsters and all sorts of stuff out of fairy tales. Could this be a “Fairy Tale Island?”Then there’s this post by the Creators:

It was a dark and stormy night…

When planning our next adventure, you could say that we had a flash of inspiration.

We’ll be announcing the next Poptropica Island very soon. This quest will leave you thunderstruck!

I’d say, “Get out your magic wands.” *audience pulls out wands” NOT NOW!

Audience: Oh. *puts back magic wands”

 

S.O.S. Out for Members!

S.O.S. Island came out a few days ago on Thursday! For Members only, of course. The goal is to rescue all of the passengers before the boat goes underwater. You can go under the water in the ship and swim, but with limited air.Then, after Members beat the island, they can play a bonus quest. You have to go down to the ship, which has sunk all the way underwater. It’s leaking oil, and you have to stop the leaks before you run out of air. Have fun playing it! Plus, Members get three free gold cards from the store.

I know I owe all you guys a contest. Sorry. I’m working on it. I’m open to ideas.

 

The Countdown is on…

4 days, 2 hours, 17 minutes and 27, 28, 29…

seconds until S.O.S. Island is released for Members!

Here is a Creator’s post with some more info…

More S.O.S. Island details leak out…

The release of S.O.S. Island draws ever closer. If you haven’t been keeping up with developments on our S.O.S. Island info page, then you may not have heard that this Island will include a special bonus quest for Members!

Everyone will still get the same great action and storytelling you expect from Poptropica — and S.O.S. Island has some amazing twists you’ve never seen before. But Members will get to go beyond the story, to find out what happens after the first tale is finished.

We’ll have more news about S.O.S. Island very soon!

Captain Crawfish

Hmm, “Amazing twists you’ve never seen before.” Sounds pretty awesome.

Plus, POSTERS!

The Creators have come out with three new posters.

They’re looking pretty good.

 

And…

Under construction

We’re plugging away on a cool new feature for Poptropica that we will have ready for you soon. Here’s another quick look.

Can you guess what it might be? We’ll have all the details soon!

-Captain Crawfish

Could this be the new feature we’ve seen in the Daily Pop?

All right, that’s all for today!

 

Video…

We have two video thingymajigs today. What? I don’t know what to call them.

The first is a new trailer for SOS Island!

It’s looking pretty exciting! I think it’s loosely based off of the Titanic.

The second is not as awesome, but I’m posting about it anyway! 😀

No that is not just a random picture. It’s a video on the Celebrity Clips section of the Daily Pop. That’s Lincoln Peirce. The title is CHECK THIS OUT!
Yay.
*crowd yawns*
Sorry guys… um.. I guess that’s the end of my post.
I feel like I’m forgetting some-AGH! HE-*gets pulled behind the curtains*

Happy New Year!

I hope everyone who reads this blog has a great New Year. You can expect a lot of awesome things coming this year: A pinch of contest, lots of posts, and lots and lots of surprises! Happy New Year!

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Alright. Merry Christmas!

WHO WANTS A CONTEST!!!! *The crowd goes wild!* There willl be plenty coming in 2012, hopefully starting in late January.

Now, the Christmas fashion show!

Happy Holidays!

The Creators have something to say too.

Happy Holidays from Poptropica!

Well, it’s the holiday season once again, and once again the Creators are about to settle in for a long winter’s nap. But before we go, we thought we’d bring back some seasonal wallpapers that we first introduced in this blog three years ago.

Click either of these images to load the full size, and then right-click and set as your desktop background.

Thanks to every Poptropican for making 2011 a great year. We’ve got even more in store for you in 2012.

Happy holidays, and a happy new year!

Elf power!

This week, there are two new items in the Poptropica Store!

The Elf Costume is a stylish look for any occasion — but mostly for Christmas.

Or, blast your friends with holiday cheer by grabbing the Candy Cane-On!

Both of these items are available in the Poptropica Store. The Candy Cane-On costs 150 credits, and the Elf Costume is free for all! Poptropica Members, of course, can use any costume and Gold Card in the store without needing credits.

Happy holidays!

-Black Widow

And one more thing…

It comes soon…

The Creators have released the name and info page for the next Poptropica island! Say hello to…

S.O.S. Island

Here’s the info page: http://www.poptropica.com/island-tour/sos-island.html.

“When a whale-watching expedition strikes an iceberg, a pleasure cruise becomes a disaster scene. As the ship sinks deeper and deeper into the frigid waters of the North Atlantic, can you rescue everyone onboard before it’s too late?”

This reminds me of Mystery Train. You spend the entire island on one vehicle. This time it’s a boat. That’s sinking. And you have to save everyone. So they don’t die. And so you you don’t die either. Actually, this is a lot different from mystery Train. 😉

 

 

Spooky.. Today

Ghost Story island comes out for Members today!!! At 9:00 my time, Poptropica will be flooded with Members. Once again,

Hemlock Harbor is a town with a secret. Restless spirits are said to haunt its shores, but no one knows who they are, what they want — or how to get rid of them. Can you hunt the ghosts of Hemlock Harbor and uncover the mystery that will set them free?

*Spooky music in the background* Good luck everyone!

Ghost Sory in TWO Days

Just two days away!!!!! On Thursday afternoon, Ghost Story island comes out for members. Here is the island info for anyone who wants to know:
