Announcing the next Poptropica Island!

We are happy to announce your next Poptropica adventure: Survival!

Survival is unlike anything we've done before. It's just you against the elements, trying to stay warm, find food, and more. You'll need to use your wits and explore your environment to win the struggle against nature.

That's not all that's different about Survival. See, we know you were getting tired of waiting months for each new Island. And we were getting tired of making you wait months for each new Island. That's why Survival will be our first episodic Island. Instead of waiting forever for it to come out all at once, you'll be able to play each chapter as it becomes available.

In other words: more new Poptropica adventures, more often!

The first episode is called Survival: Crash Landing. It will be released on Thursday, March 20 for Poptropica Members.

For more information, check out our Survival info page.

Keep an eye out right here for more news about Survival: Crash Landing, and subsequent episodes!

And then there was one

We've decided.

After much deliberation, debate, and soul-searching, we've picked a winner for the Create Your Dream Island contest. We received so many amazing entries, but one stood a little higher than the rest. One lucky Poptropican wowed us with their creativity and will have their Island idea produced this year.

And the winner is...

Whoops! Can't tell you just yet. We will be revealing the runners-up and the grand prize winner within the next few weeks. Watch this space!
