A TON of posts….

Hey, pogostix here again, this time reporting with a TON of new stuff. First and most recent, we have a special message from one of the creators of poptropica, Jeff Kinney, announcing the release date of Cryptids island…But there is more to this message than you realize. As you see from this screen shot….

As you see, both highlighted in red, there is a poster and a small booklet. The book is titled “The Poptropica fun book” and should be the first Poptropica book published (according to EP) There is also a poster slightly to the right to Mr. Kinney’s head, sporting the words “Wild west”. This may be the next idea for an Island. Only time will tell.

Know Your Cryptids: Bigfoot

Bigfoot: Fact or Fiction?

Cryptids Island is coming very soon to Poptropica! Before you take on some of the world’s most fearsome mythical monsters, we’d like to tell you a little bit about the legends.

Bigfoot. Sasquatch. Yeti. Three names, one very large, very hairy creature. Reports of a half-man, half-ape abound all over the world.

In the Pacific Northwest region of North America, reports of a brown-haired beast go back decades. Most famously, a short movie taken by a man named Roger Patterson seems to show a Bigfoot lumbering through the woods, looking suspiciously back at the photographer.

In the snowy mountains of the Himalayas, a humanoid beast known as the Yeti, or the Abominable Snowman, has also been reported for years. But, as with the North American Bigfoot, no concrete proof of the Yeti has ever been found. A monastery in Nepal claims to have a Yeti scalp on display, but scientific tests of the hair have been inconclusive.

Well, what about you — do you believe in Bigfoot? Vote in our poll to the right!

 

And here’s another post on Nessie…

Know Your Cryptids: Loch Ness Monster

Nessie: Real, or all wet?

Cryptids Island is coming very soon to Poptropica! Before you take on some of the world’s most fearsome mythical monsters, we’d like to tell you a little bit about the legends.

Tales of the Loch Ness Monster go back centuries. Affectionately known as “Nessie,” she is said to live in the deep waters of Loch Ness, a lake in the Scottish Highlands. By most accounts, Nessie is a massive, long-necked creature that can travel on land as well as in the water.

The best-known picture of Nessie, shown above, was taken in 1934 by a surgeon named Dr. Wilson. Years later, another man claimed to have helped fake the photo, but it was impossible to know whether he was telling the truth, or simply seeking fame for himself.

Theories abound as to what Nessie could be. Some say that eyewitness accounts are honest misidentifications of everyday animals and objects. Others say she could be a leftover relic of the dinosaur age, specifically a plesiosaur. Still others think that there might once have been a Loch Ness Monster, but that it has died. And, of course, the possibility remains that Nessie is nothing but a hoax.

What do you think — do you believe in the Loch Ness Monster?

 

Interesting. I guess I could believe in the Loch Ness Monster…. but than again, anything can be faked now with a picture and Adobe Photoshop. Until then… see ya later!

 

I’M FINALLY ON WINTER BREAAAAAK!
