For those who don’t know, Galactic Hot Dogs is a webcomic published on Funbrain.com about a boy named Cosmoe and his adventures through space… kind of a generic plot, but the characters are weird enough to keep it interesting. The island will be shot in the same style as the comic, something that hasn’t been done since Wimpy Boardwalk.
Also, I just noticed something- they’re finally back to calling islands islands! Ever since late last year, the quests have just been referred to as “Monster Carnival” or “Survival”.
As a side note, Arabian Nights: Lair of Thieves is now available to members!
There’s a new ad on Main Street for the latest Diary of a Wimpy Kid book, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul!
In the game, you have to roll a potbellied pig around various obstacles to get to the finish line. Once you win, you get a pig costume and a Pumpkin Bazooka game. Winning that game will get you a firing pumpkin bazooka.
Halloween is coming up three weeks from now, and to get into the spirit, you can get seven costumes from the Poptropica store for absolutely NOTHING!
You would have to complete eleven islands to get enough credits to buy these costumes normally, so get them free while you can. For more free costumes, the Haunted House mini-quest is also free in the store, and you gain access to a host of costumizable characters once you complete it.
If you need any more inspiration, check out our Costumes page.
Poptropica has been celebrating its birthday for about a week now, but since I only just found the special edition birthday suit in the common rooms, I thought I would finally bring it up.
Can you believe that Poptropica is now seven years old? That means that some of its current players weren’t even born when it was released! A lot has changed since Early Poptropica came out in 2007, especially in this past year, with the introduction of sound-updated islands and island episodes.
You can celebrate by grabbing the FREE 7th birthday balloon in the store, but there’s another prize lurking around Poptropica for those who can find it. If you go to a common room and find a blue balloon with the number 7 on it (seen below in the picture), you’ll win the exclusive Poptropica’s 7th Birthday Outfit. Once the birthday celebration ends, it’ll be gone forever, so start searching!
P.S. Recently, the Creators posted a cryptic message on their blog:
…to make things a little easier, we’ll be adding a brand-new common room to Poptropica very soon!
What does that mean? Are they adding a common room to an existing island? Is it going to be a store item? Tell us what you think in the comments!
