Club Penguin Rewritten
This category is dedicated to the latest Club Penguin Rewritten content, from update news to party guides, we have it all!
The test mode of the HTML5 client for Club Penguin Rewritten has returned! It can be accessed at this link: https://play.cprewritten.net/2020/
Update – 3rd January: If you see a black/grey screen when trying to log in, it’s because the testing is down – that’s intentional, and you won’t be able to log in!
I must stress that this is still the testing version; the transfer of account data has not occurred yet, and features such as igloos haven’t been added. Even this version will only last for a limited time until the official HTML5 client is launched.
If you’re facing issues when logging in, you’ll probably need to clear your cache. Please remember though that this isn’t the official launch of the HTML5 version, and we’re still undergoing the transition period! It’s unlikely any data or progress you make during this period will be saved.
As you’re probably aware, we’re currently in the transition period to HTML5, where it isn’t possible to play Club Penguin Rewritten! This is to ensure that the data of accounts can successfully be transferred over to the new HTML5 client.
One of the most popular questions has been when this will be completed. The team have now stated that their ambition is to have it finished by January 5th. Notably, that does not mean the transfer will be completed by then.
We’re aiming for January 3rd-4th or 5th but I don’t know; it depends when we are done with the transferring.-stu, Club Penguin Rewritten administrator
Even though it’s not a precise date, I think that it’s helpful in conveying that the transition period is going to last a matter of days rather than a prolonged extent of time!
Thank you for reading, waddle on!
Flash Player has been the technology which Club Penguin Rewritten has relied on since it began, however as the year concludes, it’s going to be retired by browsers. As a result, the version of the game which we’re most familiar with has now closed.
I must assure you: this isn’t the end of Club Penguin Rewritten! Although it won’t be possible to play the game for a bit, the data of every single account is being transferred to the new HTML5 client. This is more modern technology, and it’ll be launched and available to play soon.
When it does launch, some aspects will initially be missing, mainly many mini-games and puffles. It’s a priority of the team to re-add them as quickly as possible, but this may take a while.
From tonight, Club Penguin Rewritten will be retiring its Flash version of the game which we’ve grown familiar with over the last few years. This will occur at 8pm GMT, and that’s the final time which you have to do anything with the current Flash version, from collecting the final items at the Holiday Party to taking any last screenshots.
As a reminder, this is not the end of Club Penguin Rewritten; the game will be transitioning to a new technology, HTML5, but this will take some time to achieve. No data (eg. items/friends/stamps) is going to be lost from your account, but initially, there’ll be substantially less content: it seems like there’ll be around eight mini-games at launch, for example, and that puffles will be missing. It’s a priority of the team to implement, at the earliest possible stage, all missing games, such as Pizzatron 3000, Cart Surfer and Card-Jitsu.
So, a big day for the future of the game, and I just wanted to make you aware of the precise date! Please remember to take any final screenshots on the Flash version.
The transition to HTML5 will begin at the end of this month on Club Penguin Rewritten! Earlier today, the team released a comprehensive list of the main things we can expect at launch.
- Around 8 mini-games
- Igloo decorating
A sneak peek was also released of igloo decorating on HTML5! Probably the most impressive thing about it is how smoothly it all runs, and the HTML5 version should be notably faster.
It’s quite clear that a lot will also be missing, but don’t worry! It’ll all be added in over time: the team have made clear that every mini-game will be implemented at “some point”.
The other noticeable thing missing from that list are the changes to Puffle Care, which were supposed to come with HTML5. The team have clarified that will become a priority after the initial bug fixes.
Puffles will be still in development and we hope to shift our focus on them after a few bug fixes, etc.-stu, Club Penguin Rewritten administrator
Lastly, no more non-urgent bug fixes will be implemented to the Flash version given that it will be retired within a few days.
Merry Christmas to everyone! This Christmas might feel very different to a lot of people, especially those under living restrictions to stop the spread of coronavirus, but whether you’re celebrating it with family or alone (or doing nothing at all!), I wish you a lovely day.
I just wanted to quickly share the Advent Calendar gifts, since they’re all available now. As a reminder, you can find them at the Forest.

As you may be aware by now, the technology which Club Penguin Rewritten is currently reliant on (Flash) will be retired by browsers at the end of this year. In order to ensure that the game continue, the team have been working on a HTML5 version, which is a more modern technology that will be supported long into the future, and you can learn more about it here!
Part of the transition between the two different types of technology will require some downtime at the end of the year. In other words: from December 31st, the game will be down for “several days”.
There are only 7 days left of the Adobe Flash version of Club Penguin Rewritten, and the game will be down for several days starting on [December] 31st, which is when we will complete our move to HTML5.-Thorn, Club Penguin Rewritten administrator
This is important if you enjoy Club Penguin Rewritten, so please be aware that there is only one week left to enjoy the current “version” of the game before it’s retired.
Earlier in the month, it was revealed that there’d be a new background featuring all the main mascots! That has now been released, and it’s called the Family Photo. Here’s how to obtain it:
- Open the newspaper (icon at the top left of your screen)
- Flick to the first page, which is page A2
- Click the photo of all the mascots together
- Press “Yes” when the dialog appears
- It will be added to your inventory!
It’s definitely a really lovely background featuring all of the characters together, and something you won’t want to miss! Thank you very much for reading!
Earlier in the week, the Springy Santa Hat was introduced to Club Penguin Rewritten, however I forgot to share a guide about how to obtain it! I’d like to thank LuluTheseLemons for reminding me, and I just wanted to share the guide in case people are looking for it!
Unlike other items, you need to be sent this one:
- Have a penguin send you the purple “Happy Holidays!” postcard
- Open to your mailbox and click the postcard
- Click “Get item!”
I’ll be happy to send out plenty of these postcards at today’s meet-up if you wish for one! However, there should be plenty of penguins on the island willing to send you one – just make sure your mailbox isn’t full!
Christmas this year is going to be a particularly strange one – in many countries, there’s a whole range of restrictions imposed due to the coronavirus pandemic! However, I’ve been hoping to help spread a little bit of joy for the holidays, so I’ll be hosting a little event on Club Penguin Rewritten tomorrow!
We’ll do a whole range of things, from playing games like Hide & Seek and Find Four, to visiting igloos and exploring the island! I’m completely open to suggestions too if anything wishes to try something else!
The event has now ended! I’m sorry that we couldn’t play as many games and igloos as I initially hoped; the server was completely full, and it quickly became really slow and laggy! However, I hope everyone found some enjoyment in it, and I really appreciated seeing everyone there. Waddle on!
- Date: Wednesday 23rd December
- Time: 7pm GMT/2pm EST/11am PST/1pm CST
- Server: Permafrost
- Starting room: Ski Lodge
Just in case you plan to attend, please check this post when the event begins; it’ll contain information on how to see which room we’re in at any given moment! If you have any questions, including needing assistance with timezone conversion, please let me know in the comments and I’d be happy to help!
I hope that it’ll be a lot of fun, and that you’ll be able to attend!
