STEAMWORKS ISLAND!

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.)

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!
