Your Friday fix

Before we head into the weekend, we wanted to make sure you saw this: the info page for Great Pumpkin Island is up, with some cool new screenshots you haven't seen before!

Great Pumpkin Island is coming very soon. You'll hear the release date first right here on the official Poptropica blog!

It's a conversation piece

Imagine having something like this on display in your home. You'd need a pretty big house -- not to mention money to burn!

What kind of bird is that, anyway?

Generally speaking

Great Pumpkin Island is coming very soon, but every day isn't Halloween at Poptropica HQ. We're working on more new Islands for you to enjoy, too!

Need proof?

My, that's one fine looking general store. It reminds me of the lovely seaside resort towns I used to ransack on Skullduggery Island. Those were the days. Nowadays it's all fences and gated communities.

Pump up the map

Since we've added so many new Islands to Poptropica recently, you may have noticed the map screen has gotten a little too full. Well, no more! We've made a brand-new map. And it has plenty of room for even more Islands.

In fact, if you go to the map now, you'll be able to see the next Island we're working on -- along with a sneak preview that's open to everybody! Check it out!

Four-wheel drive

Yesterday you saw an overhead shot of a vehicle from a new Poptropica Island. We've managed to get in a little closer to show you a more detailed picture.

Looks like fans of Poptropica have some off-roading in their future! But... what will you find off the beaten path?

Top down, in more ways than one

We've got a sneak peek at some more development work being done on the newest Poptropica Island.

It's a top down view, and it looks like that SUV has its top down, too! What do you suppose is happening here?

House party

This week, we've shown you four different sketches of mansions. But only one will be able to make it into a new Poptropica Island. It's so hard to decide which it should be. Let's take another look:

Mansion 1
Mansion 2
Mansion 3
Mansion 4

Decisions, decisions...

Which one do you like the best? Vote in our poll on the sidebar!

In the big house

Before we move onto the next phase of the design, here's one more approach to the big mansion that will serve as an integral part of a new Poptropica Island.

Those columns certainly are regal. You'd have to be a pretty big hotshot to have columns like that around your front door.

But which of these designs will ultimately make it into the new Island?

A cozy country estate

Here's a different approach to the big houses that we've been sketching for an upcoming Island.

This one's a little more modest, wouldn't you say? Not enough skulls and crossbones, if you ask me.

Takin' it to the house

How many different ways can you imagine a big, fancy house in the country? If you were a Poptropica Creator, you'd have to imagine several. Yesterday we showed you one such sketch. Here's another.

This isn't even all of them! We'll show you a couple more of these early designs as the week goes on.

No rest for the wicked awesome

Steamworks Island has been a smashing success! We're all very proud of it. Poptropica Members are already exploring the mysteries of the Island, and the Island will be available to all before you know it.

So, what do the Poptropica Creators do after a new Island launches? Surely we've earned a little R+R, right?

Not on your life. We're already hard at work on the next Poptropica adventures. Here's an early sketch of something we've got cooking.

That's a nice-looking house! What kind of a person do you suppose lives there?

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!

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.

New island sneak peek week: The Multi Tool

Yesterday, we introduced a handy tool that you will need for the next Poptropica island, called the "Multi Tool." I can imagine that you may be thinking, "Multi Tool?...Hmmm...It must be used for multiple tasks."

It's true that this device will do more than open a can of soup.

This is not the only tool you will need to make your way through the next Poptropica adventure. Tomorrow we will show you another inventory item that you are certain to have a blast using.

New island sneak peek week!

Many of you have noticed that there is a new Poptropica island in the works. We've decided to share a few sneak peeks of this mysterious, mechanical island.

You'll need a few gadgets to get past some tricky puzzles and wacky, wild monsters -- and I'm not talking about your dad's pocket knife.

Here are a couple of gizmos that you won't find in your home toolbox. One of these will help you on your quest to victory, cheering fans, and instant popularity...well, at least victory.

"Multi Tool"? Hmm, what do you think it does?

Come back all week for more sneak peeks. Then, on Friday, we'll announce the name of the new island. You'll get it here first, so keep those eyeballs glued to the blog for more exciting peeks.

The 'Root' Of All Evil

It's actually kind of cute. I think I'll call him Mr. Snuggles.

Skullduggery Island launch dates announced!

Secret's out: Skullduggery Island will open to the public on June 17. Members can cast their sails beginning May 20!

I'd be more excited if I didn't expect everyone to turn their cannons on me the first chance they get...
