A post on the CCC.

So, I’m moving the CCC outside the PNB, maybe to the PHF. You can still sign up here, though. Byebye.



Great Pumpkin is out! YEA! 😀 So, go on Poptropica and have some fun! I SAID GO!!!

A short and sweet post brought to you by Barney the Purple Dinosaur CyberTron. Peace out.

The tasks have been chosen!

Howdy ya’ll, it’s CyberTron! You know about the CCC, right? well, I have for the helpers! Writers, if you could start writing missions, designers, work on the layout, and coders, umm, code something! Thanks!


Yeah, the name sounds kinda simple and cheesy, but it is STILL an island, even though there are creepy crawlies. 😯

Annie zooms in with the updates…

Announcing the new Poptropica island!

All week we’ve been showing you sneak peeks of the newest Poptropica island currently in development, and we’ve promised to reveal the island’s name.

The time has come. My fellow Poptropicans, the Poptropica creators are proud to announce their newest creation:

STEAMWORKS ISLAND is coming soon!

Make sure to visit the official Poptropica creators’ blog often for the latest news and announcements about Steamworks Island, including some of the incredible gameplay features we have in store.

So I think I’m supposed to say ‘YAY!’ now. YAY! *crowd cheers*

Celebrate with some powerful party favors.

Here are three items in the store to pump some power into your party.

The Atomic Power item will generate a lot of atomic energy for you and those who happen to be near you when you punch the power button (space bar.) (Sorry gize, you’ll have to click on the link or go to the blog, as I’m useless with the embeded thingy! 🙂 )

The fireworks are another new item in the store. Just launch them and watch the fireworks shower above. I recommend using them on top of a tall building on Spy Island, or at the Pirate Outpost. Just try not to light them too close to the gun powder on Pirate Outpost. We don’t want to have to release an injured victim outfit in the store.

And last, don’t forget those Silly Streams. Always fun for spraying at friends, and innocent mimes that are often too easy of a target.

Seems the creators wanted a break and decided to terrorise the poor mime.
😦 I’ll save you Mr. Mimie!! And by the way, the girl is really quite scary, she is absolutely OBSESSED with explosions and stuff. (I don’t blame her!)

Evolution of a Steamworks Island monster

For Steamworks Island, the we’ll pit you against a variety of mutated plant monsters. But how did we make the creepiest, crawliest, ickiest plant monsters around?

We started by brainstorming.

These are just some of the sketches we drew to help us visualize what our monstrous creations would look like. Not all of the sketches will make it into the final product — in fact, most won’t — but this allows us to try out different ideas. Then we’ll take the very best concepts and work them into Poptropica.

Remember the poll they put in the Creator’s Blog, about the scary moster #1 and #2. Well, this is how they ‘made’ the monster. I’d just LOVE to sketch like that! 🙂

Steamworks monster sketch

Yesterday, you saw some of the earliest ideas for the plant monsters that will appear on the next Poptropica island, Steamworks Island. This one seemed appropriately icky.

It’s still no more than a sketch — just an outline of an idea. But we’re already thinking about how the plant will look when it’s colored and detailed, and how it will move. The next step is to take this sketch and Poptropica-ize it!

This is the plant monster that won in the poll, and again, I aboslutely ADORE the sketch. How do they do that? I just hope I don’t have to face that monster in Steamworks island. (Which I WILL have to defeat, of course.)

Steamworks plant monster art

After settling on a sketch we liked, it was time for to give a little more life to the plant monster that will be menacing players on Steamworks Island.

Below are two approaches to the plant monster. Can you spot the differences between them?

Little details, like the color of the planter, and big ones, like the plant’s eye, can make a big difference in the monster’s appearance.

The next step: animation test!

OMC! The monster is really quite creepy! Which plant monster do you think is scarier? 😮
How’s the CCC project signup coming on? I’m too lazy to go and check 😛
And sorry I haven’t posted in a long time. Summer is bad for my laziness!

The Final BOOM!

Hello again peoples! I would like to congratulate Super Thunder for winning my 1000 hits contest. You should get an e-mail soon. And I would like to apologize to everyone for not ending my contest earlier.

Now, to the BOOM BOOM!

New island sneak peek week: It’s the bomb

Yesterday to keep the sneak peeks rolling out the door, we showed concept sketches of dynamite for the new island.

Here is the finished version. This is something that you are not allowed to hold while chasing your brothers around the campfire.

Look at all those gauges and wires. I had to read a 500 page manual to learn how to use it properly. Though, I accidentally discovered that throwing it works too.

Now that you’ve seen a glimpse of the design style of some of these items, can you guess what kind of island this is going to be?

Don’t forget to come back tomorrow for the announcement of the new island name!

It looks like it has a timer on it, kind of like you have to run away from it.

I am thinking, that maybe, just maybe, these could be things from MONSTER CARNIVAL ISLAND! These could be things you have to use on attractions. Not likely,but hey, a person can dream. :\

Hello again, peoples. Now, to the DYNOMITE!

New island sneak peek week: It’s dynamite!

You dyna-might want to take a look at this next item. Ok, I know that was a terrible joke.

Take a gander at these sketches of dynamite. This explosive gadget is a little more complicated than the stick of clay you are used to seeing.

Come back tomorrow to see the final image of this dynamite with some color. And don’t forget that on Friday, we’re revealing the name of the new island for the first time.

Remember, the PNB is the bomb. *snicker* *Crickets*Moving on from that terrible pun,  Wow.  First a dangerous multi-tool on poptropica, now dynamite! Thank the lord the creators are teaching us how to use cool, dangerous stuff!

I have a 1000 hits contest going on on the PREVOUS PAGE! I need 4 more comments to determine the winner. I have to have all 4 comments by 8:00 PM tommorow, or I will determine the winner  by who had the latest comment, besides me.

Also, who says ‘gander’ anymore?

See ya!

De Final Chapter

Here’s the last post in the Behind the Scenes series:

Behind the scenes of Skullduggery Island: The Phoenix Warbird, part five

With the colors and the scale of the Phoenix Warbird in place, it’s time for a few final tweaks to the design. For that extra “oomph,” the creators give the ship a set of fierce-looking talons.And it’s done! Starting with one basic idea, the creators sketch out different possibilities, choose a direction, and then refine and improve the design until the final version you see here.

Here’s how it looks next to an actual Poptropican.

Huge, isn’t it?

And here’s a look at the Phoenix Warbird when it takes to the seas.

Pirates of Skullduggery Island, tremble in fear!

Quite a journey from concept to reality, huh? How far we’ve come:

Of course, seeing the Phoenix Warbird in pictures is one thing. Taking the helm of this mighty vessel is quite another.

Have you earned enough doubloons in Skullduggery Island to buy the Phoenix Warbird? If not, what are you waiting for? Play Skullduggery Island now!

On the sea , it sorta looks like Cpt. Crawfish’s ship, don’t you think? Well, I’m out. Peace!
EDIT: On the link “How far we’ve come:”, there’s the video which is supposed to be under it.
