Pelican Rock is the toughest prison ever built. And after you're framed for a crime you didn't commit, it's your new home! Use your wits to devise an escape plan, and your nerve to pull it off. But getting out is just the beginning — because the real criminal is still out there!
Escaping from prison or some such captivity has been a recurring thing to do in Poptropica for a while (most recently Arabian Nights), but it's been laughably easy. Now that there's a whole island based around that, it should be more challenging and fun! And guessing from the description again, there's going to be something to do even after your escape: find out who the real culprit is! The island itself will be releasing sometime in December according to the Creators' word on Twitter, but it's not fixed yet and may vary (probably towards the end).
First of all, sorry for the extended lack of new blog posts here on Poptrickia. The truth is that I was sick for a while, which put me behind in school, so I had to spend a lot of time catching up, and then the midterms rolled around so I was occupied studying. I always try to post regularly though, so please excuse the lateness!
The newest upcoming Poptropica island has been announced: Escape from Pelican Rock! For months we've been drooling over Daily Pop sneak peeks of scenes that appear to take place in a kind of prison, and now we've got this exciting plot:
(off-topic note: does anyone else think the music to the trailer seems a little off for the theme it's trying to convey? Perhaps it's just because I first heard that music on Mystery of the Map and I've got the tropical image stuck in my head, but eh). If you're hungering for some imagery from the island, check out the recent sneak peeks, starting from around August.
In addition, the Creators are giving away some cool free stuff in anticipation of the island's release. They've already put the Escapee Dr. Hare costume in the Store for Members (don't worry, we're unlikely to actually see Dr. Hare as a character on the island), and this Thursday all players will be able to get some more items. We don't know exactly what they will be, but the Creators have given this screenshot as a hint, so it may be something to do with the police dog shown in the picture:
Time willing, I may be able to get some even more top-secret sneak peeks directly from the Island's files later this week or next; not promising anything though! Moving away from that topic, also on Thursday, the Creators have announced that a World Champions map for Reality TV Island will be created! Not only that, first-time completions will give 200 credits rather than the usual 150. That should inspire some heavy competition :). Also, it's very important to note, that to get on the Champions map, you will most likely have to restart the island, not just play the game show again. Again, that's not confirmed yet, but it's likely.
Alright, that's all I've got for today! Enjoy the upcoming excitement of Escape from Pelican Rock, and I definitely hope to find time away from schoolwork to post more often!
