Back Lot Island: Teaser Images



As we get ready for the release of Back Lot island, I wanted to gather some of the teaser images the creators have given us and see if we can’t figure out some of the details of the movie-themed adventure.

First off is a film splicer, a piece of old-school movie editing equipment that has gone the way of the Dodo since the digital era. Looks like we might get to play a little film splicing game:


Next we have a backdrop. Combined with the following picture, it appears the backdrop is going to roll upwards, giving the illusion of falling. Movie magic!



Based on the handprints and footprints, I’m guessing Carson Willis is an old movie star who was immortalized like the many celebrities who’ve put their handprints in the sidewalk in L.A.’s Walk of Fame outside Grauman’s Chinese Theater.


And speaking of the famous Grauman’s Chinese Theater…


A preview of the interior perhaps?


Next up are two old starlets. Or the same aged starlet in different outfits.


This next image looks like it’s teasing a sound effects game. Watch the screen and match the sound FX to the picture, maybe?

Someone’s spying Paparazzi-style outside Soundstage 2. Notice the barrel of Cry More Fake Tears and garbage bag labelled “scripts”. Satire at its best!


Based on this image of a golf cart, as well as some overhead map type images that I didn’t post because they were kind of boring, I’m guessing Back Lot Island is going to have a map system similar to Wild West and Lunar Colony. Or it could just be an old cart you walk by on the way to a soundstage.


Speaking of stages, here’s another soundstage exterior with a hilarious looking dinosaur prop, as well as a couple soundstage interiors.



Green-screen magic! I hope we get to add that monster outfit to our costume closet!


“Look out, a tornado! Run for your lives!”



MAKE-UP! And what’s with the fish and seagull?


You can’t make it in show business without a talent agent. Welcome to One-of-a-Kind Talent Agency.


Once you’ve made it big, they’ll immortalize you in wax. Have you ever seen one of these things? They’re really creepy.


I wasn’t sure if I should include this, because it might not be Back Lot Island. If it is, I’m thinking its a basement full of old props? Or maybe they’re making an island called Yukon Gold! where we all get to be gold prospectors. But…I doubt it.


Can’t make a movie without some planning and here we see the prop design for the “locomotive”.


All the stars have to have trailers. This one belongs to the famous Kirk Strayer. We don’t know him now, but once Back Lot Island is released, we will.


Finally, the last two teaser pix look like they’re stills from an action movie and an alien invasion movie. Can’t wait to see them on the big (small) screen!

  7. That happened to me before, when I was still kinda new.
    Wierd battle CK, eh?

    BTW-CK, you’ve been on this site for a long time and you still don’t have a gravatar! (Same with Giant Eagle.) Look how new I am and I have gravatar (Just to have a picture)!

  8. Gravatars do not symbolize how long you have been on here. It’s their choice if CK or Giant Eagle don’t want to get a Gravatar.

  9. fine CK fine!!! ill stop, but just to say (not to get people in trouble) that ive spotted (*ahem*) other people doing it last time i do this:

  12. I sent my dad an e-mail asking him if I could go on the forum.
    But he still didn’t reply!
    Yes, I do have to ask him.
    I don’t know why. :-

  13. *:/

  14. @ GF- I don’t bother for gravatars mate. I want you people to guess these answers

  15. Haha I used to go to this site so much before! I don’t know anyone anymore :/

  16. very thorough post! by the way, we do get a glimpse of who kirk strayer is – you can get a photo with him now on main streets (e.g. night watch island), but he’ll be too bored to even look at the camera!

  17. Let ME guess!
    Your favorite color is…PURPLE!
    Your favorite animal is a…cat!

  18. OMG!

    Fascinating 🙂

  28. Back Lot Island is sooo awesome!!!! I started playing it today and i’m already enjoying it 😀

  29. Looks like IS got banned or something…

  30. he did?


  31. Dang it! Dang it! 🙁

  32. ^^^
    but…but why, GF? I mean, he seemed okay when he wasn’t spamming about votes (and clones.), but seriously, 50% of the comments were just about him and winning. it was getting really annoying….

  33. I didn’t say that IS got banned, I’m just assuming that he was, because he hasn’t been commenting… @Grey Feather: Are you and IS like, besties or something? That is just… bleh.

  34. if IS wasn’t banned, we’d have about 50 more comments all about HIM….

    so, yeah, I’m guessing he’s banned.

  35. GF,
    y’know the house things not real, right?
    IS is just saying it?

  36. (though I kinda wish that Poptrop-houses did exist.

    okay, I wish it a lot.)

  37. No!
    Actually, not really.
    How on Earth am I gonna get Kirk’s coffee when they sold out the kind he wants?! (Backlot Island)

  38. I guess I won’t be able to be on the creator’s blog. 🙁
    I was really looking forword to that.

  39. *forward

  40. Slippery Icicle

    There’s two coffee shops for a reason, go to both and combine the stuff you get.

  41. GF you go to the one on the left to get the latte(decaf) then go to the one on the right to get the espresso(full) then go to backpack and click “use” for ether one then just pour ’em in the big cup

  42. about how much is membership?

  43. GF what do you mean you wont be on the c-blog?

  44. Just 2 more comments?
    Well, I guess that’s good.

  45. I’m not sure.
    I just felt really random at that time.
