Everything shall be on the author's deviantART journal and there is a feed to go with it.

The title of this post goes in tune with the game of an identical name. Basically you're looking at an MMO version of Scrabble with some interesting add-ons to it. Very "newb friendly" while, at the same time, appeals and keeps veteran players playing.

No worry about spelling, the game will inform you when you have made up a word. Turns are met with "action points" or "ticks" as with most PBBGs. Turns are also "play letters when you have them" and can become a bit of a race to just get your words on the bored. Personally, this game has only been played for a couple days off-and-on but like most PBBGs it is easy to leave, and come back to without much difficulty.

A few notes before you start to play as well as some simple strategy. First off, read the Help Section. It will answer all those questions you are going to have. If the Help Section doesn't answer those questions, then you've never played a game of scrabble or done a spelling-bee in your life. The Help Section applies to how Popotamo is different to similar games, that's about it. Some personal notes would be to fill up your action bar as much as possible before coming back to a game as well as to avoid putting letters in the outlining squares unless you've got plenty of actions points to spare. That very outside ring of the game square will cost you points for using but at the same time clear the bored to allow for more words.
