Details, details…

The Hub on Steamworks Island continues to evolve. Now, all of the elements are colored in, and we’ve added some detail to try to tell the story of the island.

This version of the Hub is overgrown with vines and weeds. The wobbly angles of its structure are making it look like the whole thing could topple at any moment. And, of course, there’s now a sign telling everybody where they are.

Almost done!

Awesome! But where’s the creator for SW? I’ll  be sure to enjoy this island!

Filling in the Hub

Time for a pop quiz: Can you tell the difference between the picture we posted yesterday and the one below?

Most of the background elements still look the same as they did yesterday: flat and monochromatic. We’re adding more detail to the Hub on Steamworks Island. We’ve colored in some of the more important foreground objects. They really pop off your screen!

That doorway in the upper-lefthand side of the screen looks mighty intriguing, wouldn’t you say?

😮 I didn’t know Binary Bard gave out quizzes!! > : O XD But yeah, I can tell the diffrence… And I would say! I wonder what’s inside??

The Hub takes shape

The Hub started life as all of Poptropica does, as a simple idea and a sketch. Before long, we take that idea and turn it into reality. But did you know how many different revisions a single scene takes before it gets the Poptropica stamp of approval?

At first glance, this might look like a well developed scene.

But look a little more closely. Why is almost everything the same color? Why does it all look so flat? And what the heck is that blue thing on the right, anyway?

No, the Hub isn’t done yet. Not even close.

Yeah, it does kinda look well developed…. But the newest one looks ever so much better! Thanks for showing us the evoulution of the hub! 😀
Smart Kid… Has Brainetics!
