As you all have heard, Poptropica Creator posted on their twitter that the new Poptropica is changing from the engine Flash to Unity. While Flash is for 2D animation, Unity is for 3D animation. Also, Google Chrome doesn't support Unity. This will limit a lot of players that use Chrome.
I personally think this is an interesting change. I can't say it's totally a bad thing. While Chrome doesn't support Unity, there is the WebGL that allows Unity to work without plugins. If Poptropica decides to take this path, the Unity run Poptropica will be able to work on Chrome. Now it's just a matter of whether Poptropica will be converted from 2D to 3D. I personally disapprove of the change to 3D. 2D is one of the features that attracts many users to Poptropica. The 2D animation can give it that sort of cartoonish fell that will be hard with 3D. Well, as of right now, we can only wait for further news from the Creators. Until next post everybody.
