⚡ Oh How Time Flashes By ⚡


Real talk: You've been asking questions. A lot of questions. Like:

Will Poptropica shut down in 2020? (Nope, we'll still be here!) 

Is Poptropica still a thing? (Yup, millions of kids play every month!) 

Did Poptropica delete the old Islands? (Keeping them accessible for as long as we can!) 

And of course, what will happen to our old flash accounts?


Flash will no longer be supported at the end of 2020 and we've been hard at work making sure everyone can still play Poptropica once that happens. You may have heard about the Haxe version of the game, which is the new Flash-free version of Poptropica. This version of the game is constantly being optimized to make sure it works well across devices and it's where we test new features, have special events, and launch remastered islands. 

Once Flash is no longer supported, your account will still be accessible. Your existing account will work in the Haxe version of the game too. You'll keep your stuff and we'll give you a mega credit bonus so you can get to shopping for anything available that wasn't in the Flash game. For those of you who started playing Poptropica in March 2020 or later you're already in the Haxe version!

We're also working on how to make sure you can play all the classic islands in their original format. We know our long-term fans love the classic Poptropica they grew up with and we want to keep that going forever. 

Stay tuned here for more updates as we add new things to the game!

    1. All the old islands are still available until flash gets shut down. Just go to Early Poptropica on the map. Sadly it is for members only. If you really want to replay them,I suggest you do it now, since the old school islands are not a priority for them to convert.

    2. So if you just go to early poptropica all of the old islands will be available? How does this work?

  3. The entire poptropica fan club on discord has been plotting protests and riots all week just because they didn't like the only island you guys decided to change in conversion. They even threatened to boycott if they didn't hear anything by this wednesday. It really stressed me out and I didn't know what to think and I didn't know what to blog. But this is exactly what I needed to hear. Thank you for the feedback!!

    (By the way, I heard all the complaints on the new Mythology and started to get sucked into those protests, but it occured to me that I have gotten tired of the regular mythology island. Come to think of it, I might have been tired of it since I first played it, so I am looking forward to what kinds of new changes you made. It may be simpler, sure, that was the biggest complaint, but I think that it'll be better this way. It might even be more fun! And to anyone who hates my opinion on this, they can just go watch the island walkthrough and leave us alone. Most importantly, you remastered the mythology island because you've been listening to our feedbacks so thank you for continuing to listen to your loyal fans! Not everyone may have agreed with the mythology change feedbacks, but you can't please everyone. We appreciate your consideration and your effort in this!)

    I especially appreciate the fact that you guys have all worked so hard to get all of our accounts over the flash-haxe bridge. With that being said, I clearly understand why Poptropica has had a lot of troubles lately with budgets and conversions and angry Poptropican mobs (sorry dimension bros and friends, I'm talking about you guys here), It was all about getting the biggest and best game in existence all the way on haxe! I knew it all along; it wasn't you guy's fault at all! It's an unbelievably hard project that none of the Poptropican mobsters could possibly understand! I don't know what's going on in their minds right now, but I BELIEVE IN YOU GUYS. The whole game is surviving from flash, and so is our accounts, our favorite islands, everything! and if I am right, the poptropica app, Poptropica Worlds, and Poptropica Realms, are all successful too! You all have done such a good job so far and you have my support as you get the rest of the project done. THANK YOU ALL! POPTROPICA IS THE BEST!

  4. Having our flash accounts not go by the wayside is a huge relief, although that does bring up the question of when flash accounts will be compatible with haxe? Will these be after flash is gone, or after haxe is fully set up?

  5. The haxe version is so laggy tho...

  9. I'm glad to know that poptropica isnt going away when flash isnt there (I did hear they are going to preserve some flash games in... I think it was called "flashpoint"?)I invested so much time into this game and would've been sad to know if it was going away, I actually joined here because of diamondbolts video on it, but I was disappointed that the older islands were gone but hey, now there coming back!

    1. What do you mean? If you mean no more members only exclusives you need to be more specific because someone as gullible as I am might think you don't want actual members playing the game

  13. Are you saying when flash shuts done the flash accounts will still run the flash way, or the accounts will still have your username and password but it will be in the haxe version of the game?

    ReplyDelete
  14. What about long-time fans who have already completed the classic islands? Will they have to redo the islands from the beginning?
