Good morning, Poptropicans! The big news of the day is that Twisted Thicket Island arrives in just a few hours. The creators posted a sneak peek of the in-game map yesterday (see below). It seems the new island will have thirteen different zones to explore. I’ll be playing the island as soon as it comes out and posting the walkthrough as quickly as I can. Also, this time around we’re going to do a live help session in the forum. You can join in to get help as soon as the island launches (no need to wait for the whole walkthrough to get posted).

The Twisted Thicket Island Map
In other news, the sneak peeks for April are taking shape and we’re learning a lot about the next island after Twisted Thicket. It’s definitely a Greek-inspired Olympic themed island. My guess at the name is…ready for it? Poptropolis Island and I think it’s actually a modern-day island where they re-create the ancient Greek version of the Olympic Games. Here are a few clues from the sneak peeks:
In the above image, the name of the city is clearly Poptropolis, which is of course a play on words for Poptropica and the ancient Greek suffix of “opolis”, meaning city. You know how a big city is called a Metropolis–yeah, that’s ancient Greek. So could the new island be called Poptropolis? We’ll have to wait and see, but it’s a good name.
The creators even snuck in a Balloon Boy reference into the sneak peeks, with this picture of some hot air balloons. The title was Balloon Boy but the caption seems to indicate we won’t see our intrepid traveller on the island, which is too bad. I miss Balloon Boy!
