One of the greatest mysteries in Poptropica History is the strange tale of Monster Carnival Island. This island was promoted briefly in the early days of Poptropica, but never launched. It was then forgotten completely until the Creators posted an old sketch of the island last year in the Sneak Peeks section of Daily Pop.
And now, if you’ve been paying close attention to the newest screenshots appearing in Sneak Peeks, you’ll find that a lot of them hint at an island filled with monsters. The carnival theme is gone, but there are plenty of monsters showing up in the concept art and screenshots for the new island. Specifically, there are a lot of vampire and werewolves. So will we be seeing a Monster Island after all? Perhaps a little Vampires vs. Werewolves action, a la Twilight? Let’s take a look at some of the clues that you’ll find from the latest sneak peeks.
One of the screenshots features a tomb with a statue and an engraving that reads, MEMINERUNT OMNIA AMANTES (the V is actually a U. Stone engravers often carved a U as a V because it’s easier to make straight lines). This phrase is in Latin and translates to, Lovers remember all. Could this be a tomb for a vampire?
Another screenshot features a chemical mixing scene where you add drops of certain chemicals to what appears to be a slide under a microscope. The chemicals are Mandrake Root, Wilted Wolfsbane, and Garlic Extract. Wolfsbane supposedly repels werewolves and Garlic repels vampires. Mandrake is also a plant with several supposed magical properties. Perhaps part of this new island involves getting rid of pesky monsters.
Life’s a Stage
Some of the screenshots show a play or movie about Vampires. One has a theatre out in the boonies. The performance at the theatre is called, Young Vampires in Love and another screenshot shows characters from the new island. Some of them look a lot like vampires!
