Behind the scenes: Animations from Wimpy Wonderland


As you know, one of December's Islands of the Month is Wimpy Wonderland. Normally a members-only Island, Wimpy Wonderland is open to EVERYONE through 1/2/17!

First-time finishers earn 500 credits and repeat finishers earn 300 credits the first time they complete Wimpy Wonderland again. Captain Crawfish also recorded a brand-new walkthrough for the Island to help you finish it -- you can see the Wimpy Wonderland walkthrough here.

Since this fun Island is an IOTM, we've dug up some awesome stuff to show you -- animations from when the Island was developed! When the Poptropica Creators work on an Island, a huge part of its design is getting the look and animations of the characters just right. Check out these gems!

Pretty cool, huh? Remember, you only have the rest of this weekend to build up those credits by playing through Wimpy Wonderland -- so go play Poptropica now!
