Well, we got some disappointing news from the Poptropica Creators today. Mystery Train Island won’t arrive for members until Friday, September 9. That seems a like a long time, especially because they’ve been promoting it for a while and the D.C. Diner mini-game has already been out for a week. It just seems like an awfully long time to wait. On the plus side, September 9 is my birthday, so it’s like a big present!
The Creators also posted a new trailer for Mystery Train Island and we learn a few more things about the island. Some of the famous characters that we meet in D.C. Diner, like Thomas Edison and Mark Twain, are on board the train as it heads for the World’s Fair in Chicago. And we learn that someone has stolen part of one of Thomas Edison’s inventions. What are they up to? Probably no good, because every great Poptropica Island has a devious villain!
The Poptropica Creators posted a quick sneak preview of an upcoming mini-game called D.C. Diner, which will be available “very soon.” They don’t reveal much about this new mini-game, except that it will be all about Mystery Train Island. In the game, Poptropicans are all getting ready to board the train to the Chicago World’s Fair in 1893. But before they get on board, they want to eat at the D.C. Diner. It looks like the object of the game will be to serve them the food that they’re ordering. It sounds a lot like the classic game of Diner Dash.
This new mini-game will probably be available as the sneak preview for Mystery Train Island on the main Poptropica Map. For the last few islands, they’ve made special sneak peek mini-games available for a week or two before the island itself is released for members. Most recently, we had the Sumo Wrestling game for Red Dragon Island and the Shrink Shot game for Shrink Ray Island.
The newest island on Poptropica is called Mystery Train Island. It was released to paid members on September 9, 2011. In Mystery Train Island, you’re on board a train headed for the 1893 World’s Fair in Chicago. There are several celebrity travelers on board the train, including Mark Twain, Thomas Edison, Gustav Eiffel and more. [...]
