Behind the Scenes: The Making of Quippy!



Every new feature that gets added to Poptropica goes through A LOT of art development before it's ready for the game. When we created Quippy, our friendly new droid in the common rooms, it took a lot of research and development (R&D) to get to what you see in the game today!



Before Quippy came into existence, the art team had to decide if they wanted a droid, a kiosk, or some other way to show players that there is a shop in the common rooms.



Then we picked some of our favorite designs and explored them even further.



Once we knew we definitely wanted a droid, it was time to decide what they would look like!



In the end we went with the magnificent Quippy. Wearer of many costumes. Supreme hoverer. A friendly face to help you with your common room shopping needs.

If you love games and art, consider learning more about becoming a games artist! There are a lot of ways to get involved in the making of video games outside of coding, and game artists are a critical piece of the team. After all, what's a game without the art!?

  9. You can only find the Quippies if you create a new account. Otherwise, you won't find it unless poptropica updates it.

    1. That's not fair for all of us who have long term accounts! I repeat, THAT'S NOT FAIR! Please, Poptropica! You have to fix it!
