Just when you thought you’d seen it all, look who’s in the pumpkin patch this week!

Those pumpkins are getting pretty large by now, which must mean that Great Pumpkin Island is almost here. As Linus could tell you, the waiting is the hardest part.

What is this nonsense of Hub, Special Guest, and Twilight Vampires? Well let me tell  you!

Hub News:

The Hub of the universe

We’ve done a lot of detail work on the Hub for Steamworks Island. Before we can call it done, we’ve got to give it one more pass to make sure it’s got character.

Ah… that’s the stuff. The Hub looks old, weathered, and worn. It looks like it was once a city on a hill. Now, it’s grungy and decayed. And dangerous.

There are lots more to see and do on Steamworks Island, and we’ll be showing you more soon. In the meantime, maybe we can all try to figure out what that blue thing is doing.

Special Guest News:

A special guest is coming to Poptropica!

Greetings, Poptropica fans!
Recently, the creators of Poptropica learned of an
exciting new development: Next week, a special
guest is coming to Poptropica!

He’s well-known to many of you
(especially those of you who like to laugh)
for his hilarious adventures, not to mention his loony
friends and family.
Let’s be sure to welcome him when he arrives.
Expect more information on Monday, Poptropicans.
You won’t want to miss this!

Here are the two new post I call them Finishing The Hub:

Details, details…

The Hub on Steamworks Island continues to evolve. Now, all of the elements are colored in, and we’ve added some detail to try to tell the story of the island.

This version of the Hub is overgrown with vines and weeds. The wobbly angles of its structure are making it look like the whole thing could topple at any moment. And, of course, there’s now a sign telling everybody where they are.

Almost done!

And Also….

Filling in the Hub

Time for a pop quiz: Can you tell the difference between the picture we posted yesterday and the one below?

Most of the background elements still look the same as they did yesterday: flat and monochromatic. We’re adding more detail to the Hub on Steamworks Island. We’ve colored in some of the more important foreground objects. They really pop off your screen!

That doorway in the upper-lefthand side of the screen looks mighty intriguing, wouldn’t you say?

Well Bye! 😛

Here the two new post:

The Hub takes shape

The Hub started life as all of Poptropica does, as a simple idea and a sketch. Before long, we take that idea and turn it into reality. But did you know how many different revisions a single scene takes before it gets the Poptropica stamp of approval?

At first glance, this might look like a well developed scene.

But look a little more closely. Why is almost everything the same color? Why does it all look so flat? And what the heck is that blue thing on the right, anyway?

No, the Hub isn’t done yet. Not even close.

And….

What’s all the Hub-bub?

One of the places you’ll visit on Steamworks Island is what we call the Hub. It’s a sight to see! A rickety tower, a massive drawbridge, and pot-bellied steam stoves powering everything. Safe to say that you’ve never seen anything like the Hub before.

Er, at least, you won’t have seen anything like it. To start with, this marvel of modern engineering just looked like this:

Yes, it’s hard to see what all the hubbub is about — yet. Just wait until you see how this one develops!

There’s a special treat coming tomorrow for Poptropica Members: a special Steamworks-related mystery item!

So you want to be free well here is the new post:

I want to be free

That’s not true: I want everything else to be free. In the Poptropica Store, I mean. Even though most of those sweet, sweet Gold Cards cost me my precious Credits, there are plenty of free items to go around.

Like mini-quests!

The avatar studio!

Candy canes!

Popgum!

(What is it, bubblegum week around here? Wake me up when there’s a carrot-flavored gum. Sheesh.)

Of course, for Poptropica Members, everything in the store is free, even costumes. But you knew that already.
