BOSTON, Mass. (PRWEB) December 10, 2015
Kids around the world will embark on a new adventure today on Poptropica.com with the Early Access Launch of “Escape from Pelican Rock,” available to Members. Non-members can play a demo of the Island before the public launch on Dec. 30, 2015.
When players arrive on the new Island, they discover that they have been framed for a crime they didn’t commit, and are sentenced to Pelican Rock, the toughest maximum security prison ever built. While players use their wits to devise an escape plan and test their bravery to pull their plan off, they quickly learn that escaping from Pelican Rock is just the beginning of their adventure – the real criminal is still out there!
“Poptropica’s newest Island, ‘Escape from Pelican Rock,’ will challenge players to create a strategy for escaping from the most secure prison ever created in the Poptropica universe, and then take them on a rollicking quest to clear their names and bring the real criminal to justice,” said Jen MacLean, president, Kids & Games, Family Education Network.
Poptropica Members can get a free, member-exclusive “Escapee Costume” for the beloved Poptropica character, Dr. Hare, in the Poptropica Store. All players can get two free “Escape from Pelican Rock” themed items – a Prisoner Costume and a Pet Bird Follower – starting today in the Poptropica Store.
Players who solve “Escape from Pelican Rock” can check the World Champions Players Map to see where they rank against other players worldwide.
