Hey guys! 2 days ago, an exclusive interview with the author of Poptropica: The Lost Expedition, Mitch Krpata, was posted on the Poptropica Creator’s Blog.
Here are some of the questions that were answered by Mitch:
I have been working on Poptropica from the beginning. I was part of the team that met every week in a windowless conference room to brainstorm ideas, and also helped to lay out Early Poptropica. My main job has been to write the island scripts, but I also help with marketing and promotion, licensed products (like the books and Ubisoft games), making our YouTube walkthroughs… I’m also a real cut-up on Slack.(Editor’s note: He certainly is. His gifs are epic.)
Favorite Poptropica villain? Why?
Myron Van Buren was the most fun to write, because he was so dignified and proper yet also a complete psychopath. I would not want to be invited to dinner at his place.
So, tell us a little about Poptropica: The Lost Expedition.
The Lost Expedition is about what happens to the kids once they leave the Viking island that featured so prominently in the first book. There’s a lot more island-hopping this time, and more supporting characters. But Octavian isn’t the only one after the kids anymore, and they soon realize that Poptropica isn’t all — pardon the pun — fun and games!
Can you give us some hints about books 3 and 4?
Book 3 will finally start to answer some of the many, many questions that have come up in the first two books. It’s also action-packed! Can’t say much about book 4 just yet…
Oliver and Jorge battle it out in a game of Poptropica soup words. Who wins?
Oliver would win because he’s a total bookworm. Jorge would probably look for swear words, which aren’t allowed.
If you could only pick one, who would you want to partner up with to explore a new Poptropica Island: Mya, Oliver, or Jorge? Why?
This is really tough! I’ve come to love all three of these characters. I’d have to say Jorge, because when the going gets tough, he’s always able to break the tension with a joke.

From the sound of his answers from the interviews, he sounds like a pretty fun and hardworking Poptropica creator! Anyone looking forward to reading his work?
