A Year since Club Penguin Closed…

A couple of days ago, Club Penguin marked one year since they closed down their doors forever. Back then, there were concerns that perhaps this could completely be the end of the desktop’s version of the virtual world, but a year on, the community still thrives and private servers archive the enjoyment and fun.

Club Penguin Mountains Returns Soon

This break has concluded

This time will allow me to consider the future of this blog, including which game I will be blogging about in the future, or if I will continue this blog at all. You will definitely hear from me soon, and this isn’t permanent.

I will likely keep you updated within the next one or two weeks, but you will hear more from me on this blog by the end of March, though likely earlier.

Waddle on,

Club Penguin Rewritten is Closing Down

I don’t feel comfortable commenting on the situation right now, however the news has been broken. A statement can be viewed on the website here.

Today, February 26th, Club Penguin Rewritten is announcing that the virtual world will be discontinued on March 4th, 2018 permanently. After said date is passed, the game will be offline along with the website cprewritten.net. All data and accounts associated will be erased for security purposes. Any server claiming to be us will be fake unless addressed on our Twitters @CPRewritten and @CPRSupport.

There will be one last party, The Waddle On Party, which will take place Feb. 28 — Mar. 4.
At exactly Mar. 4, 14:00 Penguin Standard Time (or 21:00 GMT), the servers will be shutdown.
You can check the Clock Tower located at the Snow Forts.

Note to all our players: Thank you. It has been such an incredible ride throughout the last year. We created parties, events, meetups and so, so much love towards our virtual world — Club Penguin. Together as a community we proved that we can bring back our favourite world with life. We are strong and always will be. This closure is not the end of our journey, but a new chapter for new discoveries and experiences. There are several other Club Penguin servers out there that you can find to keep the world spinning. You can also join Disney’s Club Penguin Island to support the official brand. Club Penguin is a community, not one specific game. The world will keep spinning as long as we are united.

Feel free to take a trip down memory lane.

Thank YOU for everything,
— The Club Penguin Rewritten Team

CP Rewritten: Aunt Arctic Confirmed to Log on Again

Aunt Arctic visited the server Blizzard on Club Penguin Rewritten for just under an hour earlier today, but unfortunately many penguins, including myself, were not able to meet her.

The good news is that the administrator Joee has confirmed that Aunt Arctic will return this month before the Penguin Play Awards ends. Today is also the day the 50th edition of the Club Penguin Rewritten Times will be published, so it is also fairly possible she may visit today again (not confirmed).

Aunt Arctic was also visiting with a new Penguin Play Awards themed background, so I am extremely hopeful to meet her again! You can find a manual tracker to increase your chances of meeting her here.

Thank you very much for reading, waddle on!

Club Penguin Island: Holiday Party Decorations

The Club Penguin Island team have shared some decorations for the Winter Holiday Party coming to the island next month! Surprisingly, Coins for Change will also be making a return to the island!

The team made a post on the blog here, sharing lots of photos and also a small amount of information. Could this line suggest Herbert, or maybe some other activity? I really hope that there is a bit more to do than the Halloween Party!

All will be calm and all will be bright–until something suspicious hinders the hype! Every penguin will have to work together to help save the holiday festivities.

The most exciting screenshot is the one of Island Central, which looks absolutely beautifully decorated! There’s a darker sky, lots of trees, wreaths, stars and other decorations! It looks amazing! But also most notably, we can see the pot for Coins for Change! I’m so glad to see that make a return!

Also in Island Central will be a Holiday Feast, hosted by Aunt Arctic! Along with lots of (new) food, we can also see what appears to be some rewards, including items and party supplies! I’m really hoping that we will see a system similar to the advent calendar when the party hits the island!

The other thing which the screenshot shows is how Igloos & Interiors will look like when opened! Also, what is that mysterious target and those Christmas trees? I reckon that they have to do with saving the Holiday Party!

The Stage will also receive some decorations, and we can see the presents in the back! Hopefully every few days, you will be able to open up the present to receive a reward!

The final screenshot posted was a few more decorations on Mt. Blizzard! We can see presents, lights, a tree and a wreath, but nothing too exciting here!

Overall, the Holiday Party looks amazing, especially in Island Central! My only hope is that there are multiple activities that last the whole event, unlike the Halloween Party and that there is an advent calendar! The team also posted an emoji sneak peek here. 

I’m also extremely glad to see Coins for Change return, for those who aren’t aware what that is, virtual coins are donated in-game by us, but then the team donate real money to specific causes in the real world! I’m curious to know what those causes will be this year!

Thank you very much for reading, be sure to check back for more of the latest Club Penguin Island news and guides! Waddle on!

Club Penguin Beta Test Party – #WaddleOn (New Series)

12 years ago today, for only four hours, the first party took place on Club Penguin. It was the Beta Test Party. The concept was simple, to try and test the servers before releasing the game, and the reward was an “ugly” beta hat, plus an opportunity to hang out with some of the staff.

On September 20th 2005, the team released a post titled “BIG PARTY!!!!”, inviting everyone to the first ever party. It was revealed in the New Horizons Documentary that the team needed some way of trying to be able to test the servers, and this seemed like the best way to do so. 155 penguins were online at the same time during the day.

There were two separate parties, one suited for people in Europe and the other suited for people in North America, each one lasting two hours each. Although twelve rooms existed during this event, one of the most famous screenshots is from the Book Room. In it are Screenhog and Billybob, both playing Mancala.

A significant part of this party was indeed the Party Hat, an item that was made to be hopefully undesirable by combining two tacky colours (pink and yellow) on a classic cone-shaped hat. It didn’t work, and was quickly regarded as the rarest item in Club Penguin. You could see it in the Gift Shop, the Coffee Shop on Club Penguin’s anniversary and if lucky enough, on a beta tester.

This series is cancelled

So the reason I post this isn’t really because of this party. I’m starting a new series, which may seem familiar to you from three posts I made the day Club Penguin closed. The new category is…

#WaddleOn

The idea is to randomly post about some events (usually parties) that happened a few years ago, most of which I enjoyed. I felt this would be a good party to start with, as it is the basis for the whole party concept as a whole. Classic Club Penguin had some incredible parties (and admittedly, some not so great ones) and I’m really excited to go over those again.

I hope that you will continue to read the new series as time goes on later this year, and I’m probably going to revisit some really epic parties starting with Operation Puffle. Remember that one? It feels like ages ago now, but it was amazingly well decorated with some great adventures, so I hope you’re looking forward to that. Thank you very much for reading and don’t forget to check back for CP Island/Rewritten news and guides too!

Waddle on!

Back to School!

It’s that time of year again, the one which loads of videos about how awful school is come out, the island becomes slightly more inactive and penguins return to school! This includes myself, and after a month of exciting new content on Club Penguin Rewritten and fun on Club Penguin Island, summer is over…

I just wanted to take this moment to wish everybody the best of luck during the new school year and whilst school has resumed for me, I’ll still be creating content almost everyday! In fact, I’ve got some new cool things to share with you this month, including the first edition of The Rewritten Written Magazine, which will hopefully be out in a few days!

Best of luck to everybody starting school again (including myself, hehe)! Waddle on!

Megg hasn’t Left Club Penguin Yet!  

Yesterday the entire community was concerned that Megg had left Club Penguin after a tweet from Polo Field confirming so, but fortunately the team did reassure us today, saying that she’s “doing great” and we’ll hear from her on Island Insider this week! 

This doesn’t necessarily confirm that Megg is remaining at the team, maybe we’ll hear news that she has left this week. But the team have reassured us that Bobbi is doing well, so I don’t think there’s a need to worry. It does however prove how much the community appreciates the meggnificence of Megg! 

I’m glad to hear this news and I appreciate the team listening to us and reassuring us of our concerns! 😊

The angle glitch!

Whilst I do like to inform you of everything going around on Club Penguin Island, my friend Danar435 is a passionate player and has his own blog which focuses on glitches. He recently posted how to complete “The Angle Glitch” that provides a method on how to change angles in the game. I’d definitely suggest checking it out as the glitch is really awesome! Waddle on! 😊

Club Penguin Island Secrets

Hello peeenguiins. Today I have a glitch that we finally figured it out a few days ago, but this glitch is yet older. Smileytylee was so amazing to tell us the method. It changes your view angle, and you can see the world like never before! But sadly I am non-member and I can’t show you the glitch images.

  1. Go to a shop, and buy a smoothie tray, if you don’t have one.
  2. Walk somewhere where the view changes, like the Migrator.
  3. Get out the smoothie tray. Press the action button so the tray is out for people to get.
  4. JUMP!
  5. Put the tray away.

Now if you start walking, the view stays at one position! You can do, whatever. Explore the island in different angles and make wonderful movies. No wonders why I didn’t figure it out. I’m not a member, haha. Okay, that’s it, sorry again that…
