Nicktropolis is an MMORPG made for the Nickelodeon website in January 30, 2007. It was created to have a world for kids with safe chat features. The game allowed you to create and customize your character and decorate your room.

In 2010, it was completely rebranded to "The Club", which used a few different assets, but the idea is the same. And in 2013, "The Club" was closed with a few assets remaining.

Gameplay

Not a lot is known about Nicktropolis, stuff like usernames were called "Nicknames", and your rooms are put in a place called "Nickname Lane"

The in-game currency were called Nickpoints, it is gained in different areas of the Nickelodeon website. It was used to buy furniture for your room.

They are areas in Nicktropolis that use Nickelodeon branding, a few are called "TeeNick Point", "Downtown Nicktropolis", "The Pier", "Nickname Lane", and "Nicktoons Boulevard." Each area has its own things to do.

Findings

Assets for Nicktropolis are rare and don't surface often. With that said, a few still have surfaced.

Someone with the name "NickyNouse" created a scratch game with the assets that have surfaced. The game is made to be a recreation of the Nicktropolis game, though with very few assets that have surfaced, isn't close to the original. [1]

I remember there were areas based on various nicktoons from the time, I remember one was based on Avatar the Last Airbender?

Yes, they did have the four Avatar nations, they also had a Tak and the power of Juju area as well as Barnyard and so much more! Thank you Paris for creating the article for me. Now we may be able to hopefully get more of a search-party for it.

Update


Bad News: File is not there :(

Good news: I messaged Mr. Alex Westerman (Creative Director of Nicktropolis) about making a prototype of the game public

I remember that depending on the stage you went to, your avatar would change depending on the setting. For example: in spongebob's place, you became a fish.

Indeed that is what happened. So many fun small things to do in such a world like that.

Wasn't this the game from from that Tumblr user that used to ask people for their "favorite pet," and then they would go into their account and into their room and take their stuff?

I actually remember playing this when I remembered my old login info from back in 2004. Sadly I never though of screencapping such "gameplay." Rip my old account tho

I know for a fact that when you played the game there where multiple places (one for each area if it had one) where you could watch episodes of a show depending on which land you were in. I remember the barnyard and spongebob ones the most with the spongebob one being in reference to the theater in the show. Also I vaguely remember there being an Halloween event where you could become a werewolf or something, if I recall correctly you could pick teams during this event and use items or something maybe to throw at each other? At this point it's all hazy considering this was like 8 years ago

Same guy just made a username I don't know if this was known but Nickpoints could obtained by playing games throughout the entire site not just Nicktropolis. If i recall correctly you could use them to buy dumb "trading cards" that you could print off from tv shows on another part of the site.

Also I'm finding a ton of crappy hypercam videos of the game on youtube so look those up my dudes.

i remember playing this game once as a kid, iirc the spongebob related areas included in front of spongebob's house and the krusty krab, and i remember there being a fortune teller who would ask for your astrological sign before giving a fortune
