We're thankful for...

As the Poptropica Creators celebrate Thanksgiving today, we wanted to take a moment to thank the most important person in Poptropica: you!

We have a great time making Islands, designing costumes, and building all the features that you can only find on Poptropica. And we're looking forward to creating even more Poptropica awesomeness in the months and years ahead.

But without someone to play it, Poptropica really wouldn't be anything at all. We couldn't do it without you -- and we wouldn't want to. Thank you!

We are psyched out of our minds to announce the next Poptropica Island...

Mocktropica!

Forget everything you thought you knew about Poptropica. Mocktropica turns it inside-out. This time, you'll go behind the scenes of Poptropica itself in order to make sure the latest Island makes it to the site on time. But you'll have to deal with glitches, bugs, and grumpy workers.

How to get the best scores in the new Poptropolis Games events

Many of you have had a chance to check out the new events in Poptropolis Games. We hope you like them as much as we do! Because the instructions screen will only tell you so much, here are a few tips to win gold in the new events.

In the downhill race, you'll probably notice two things immediately: going through a gate removes a second from your time, while hitting an obstacle adds a second. The best way to make sure that you hit gates and avoid obstacles is actually to go off jumps!

Each jump will take you over a minefield of obstacles that are hard to miss. But if you hit the jump, you'll sail clear -- and you'll land right in front of a gate.

In volleyball, there's no real trick, but the important thing to remember is that the angle the ball bounces off of you is based entirely on where it hits you. If it hits the front of you, it'll bounce forward. If it lands on top of your head, it will bounce straight into the air. And if it hits the back of you, it'll bounce backward.

The key is to try to position yourself in such a way that you'll bounce the ball at an angle that is hard for the octopus to defend.

Hope that helps! If you've already won the Games, see where you rank on our World Champions live map. If you haven't played, find out how to become a Member so you can play Poptropolis Games this weekend!

Five years ago today

We were just looking through the archives and realized that we've been updating the Poptropica Creators' Blog for over five years. That's a long time!

Five years ago today, Vlad the Viking posted a sneak peek of an Island we were working on. That turned out to be Astro-Knights Island, one of our most popular Islands of all time.

Have you ever played Astro-Knights Island? Like the other 34 Islands on Poptropica, it's free to play! So visit Poptropica now to see what you might have missed over the years.

What a difference a screen makes

Poptropolis Games had some of the best designs we've ever done. There was only one problem: they were too big for the screen! What you saw on the original Poptropolis Games ended up being cropped, like so:

But when the Games re-emerge (you are doing your part, right?), you'll finally be able to appreciate the amazing scenery we've created for you. Just like this!

There's more where that came from. So keep an eye out for more news about Poptropolis Games 2013 -- and keep on digging!
