Hi, kittens! Greedy Clown has some news for you straight from the Poptropica blog!
Sorry, the news was from, like, weeks ago!!! Sorry, I like exclamations and emojis. A lot. Here is the news…
Have you ever experienced a Poptropica Multiverse? No?! Then you are missing out, my friends!
The multiverse is one of the coolest features of Poptropica. Just visit the Poptropica Store to get your free Multiverse card. Use it to create your own Multiverse room. Each room has a unique code that you can give to your friends so that they can join you to chat and battle!
Check out our new Poptropica How-To video to learn exactly how to create a Multiverse and how to join one your friend invited you to:
Check this out: Here I am at my first multiverse party, back in 2015. The Poptropica Help Blog got a screenshot of the party. I looked a lot different then!

And here are a bunch of the Poptropica Creators hanging out in one of the first Multiverse rooms ever, back when we first created this feature in 2009!
Get your free Multiverse card in the Poptropica Store today and have fun playing games and chatting with your friends!

Behind the scenes: Designing the escape plan for Pelican Rock!
Have you completed Escape from Pelican Rock yet? It’s one of our Islands of the Month. First-time finishers earn 500 credits and repeat finishers earn 300 credits the first time they complete Pelican Rock again! You can see the Island preview and the walkthrough in our IOTM announcement.
Aw, man! I’ve been framed!
At least I got to keep my Poptropica phone.
Have you ever wondered what goes into creating a Poptropica Island? In a post about Poptropolis Games we talked about how each Island has a style guide. Today we’re giving you a peek into the development of Escape from Pelican Rock and its schematic. Check this out:
An Island’s schematic lays out exactly how the game will be played. We’re only posting a little bit of the schematic because we don’t want to give away everything!
Here’s part of the schematic that describes one of the last scenes of the game: When you break out of Pelican Rock.
After an Island’s schematic is finalized, it’s time for art and animation! Here’s what an artist envisioned the escape scene looking like:
And here’s an animator’s concept of how a flood light would look as it searched for escapees:
The end result is a fun mini-game that challenges you to carefully navigate the rooftop while the warden and her cronies are on your tail!
Have you escaped from Pelican Rock this month? If not, play on Poptropica now and build up those credits!
