Our kids love technology. This includes drawing, watching videos and playing games. They’re always excited to try out new games that come along. We recently discovered Poptropica® – a virtual world in which kids explore and play in complete safety. Every month, millions of kids from around the world are entertained and informed by Poptropica’s engaging quests, stories and games.
In Poptropica Worlds, kids will create a “Poptropican” character to travel the many Islands of Poptropica. To travel, they will use gaming literacy to enjoy a narrative that is often rooted in factual history. Problem-solving skills are honed as kids discover and solve mysteries unique to each Island. Poptropica launched the new Poptropica Worlds app on May 23, 2017.
ABOUT POPTROPICA WORLDS
StoryArc Media’s Poptropica has launched Poptropica Worlds, a reimagining of the safe, engaging, interactive and learning world that, for a decade, has consistently captivated millions of kids 6-12. It is a seamless gaming experience between web and mobile. Poptropica was Created by Jeff Kinney, author Diary of a Wimpy Kid book series, and is all about immersive and interactive storytelling.
In Poptropica Worlds, kids are empowered to explore a chain of story-based islands where they battle monsters and solve mysteries. They also complete quests as their personalized Poptropican avatar, which they create and build out. Our kids love to tell stories, so they really loved playing this game!
By engaging with Poptropica, kids explore such learning fundamentals as literacy and problem solving, as well as 21st Century skills and other subjects that are customizable to their interests. Poptropica Worlds will launch with a new customizable “House” on Home Island, which will be an extension of the player’s avatar that reflects the adventures they choose within the game.
Poptropica Worlds will also launch with a new story island, Crisis Caverns, about a supervolcano that threatened to blow Poptropica sky high. Crisis Caverns is modeled after the supervolcano in Yellowstone National Park, and is focused on teaching geology concepts. What a cool addition! I love how this game helps teach our kids and they don’t even know it because they’re having so much fun playing it!
Disney is the official exclusive launch partner of Poptropica Worlds; users will be able to enjoy the immersive ‘Cars III’ branded game on Poptropica Worlds. It is available to play for free online and can be downloaded via the App Store and Google Play.
