CP Rewritten: Medieval Delay Explanation

The Medieval Party was due to release yesterday after a week’s delay, but unfortunately it’s not currently out yet, though the Club Penguin Rewritten team are doing their best to try and deliver a very promising party.

Though the party isn’t out yet, the team have released an explanation regarding the delays, citing a switch of artist.

Our main goal is to get it out today, but I [can’t] really confirm anything. We’re waiting on our artist to send more stuff and then we can work on getting it out. The original party delay was also because of an artist problem, so we switched artists at the last minute to get things out.

Whilst it isn’t confirmed that the party will be released today, hopefully it will, but please do bear in mind that the team are working hard to make it a magical experience!

CP Rewritten: Card Jitsu Water Development Begun

Some additional information has been revealed about Card Jitsu Water coming to Club Penguin Rewritten! 💧

It was initially announced in September 2018 that the game was intended to release at some point this year, but there’s not been much information about it recently…until now.

“(Card Jitsu) Water is still in discussion with some programming done. The state it is in right now is nowhere near ready for release, but it will eventually come with the hype surrounding it beforehand.”

-stu, Club Penguin Rewritten administrator

It’s still unclear if the game is still intended to release this year as was initially confirmed since it’s been quite a while since the game was last mentioned. However, it’s quite exciting that development has already begun on it!

Club Penguin Rewritten has been Breached

It’s always deeply upsetting when posts like these need to be made, not just regarding the community affected but also the team who cares so dearly about their game, including its security.

Unfortunately it has now been announced by the Microsoft Regional Director, and confirmed by the Club Penguin Rewritten team, that over four million accounts of the game have been breached, including the 1.7 million accounts from a previous breach.

IP addresses, email addresses, and usernames associated with passwords stored as bcrypt hashes have been breached. Though passwords aren’t possible to be compromised, several risks can occur as a result of this breach, including malicious emails from fake addresses, so please take a moment to familiarise yourself with this information.

UPDATE: Please note that several flaws have since emerged regarding the official announcement; the person who initially announced the breach, the Microsoft Regional Director, has challenged the team’s stance that passwords are “impossible to crack”, stating that they’re merely more difficult and take longer to do so.

An official announcement regarding the breach can be viewed here

  • Despite your passwords being impossible to crack, we heavily suggest that you have a different password for every website that you sign-up for; this is a security practice that everybody should be following. If you need to change your password, you can do so here.
  • Always be cautious when opening emails because you never know which ones could have malicious intent. If you suspect that the email is from an untrusted address, always report it to your email service.
  • It is possible to change your IP address either by contacting your ISP (Internet Service Provider) or restarting your router. Options may vary depending on your ISP.

-Recommendations from the official announcement

I too am disappointed that this happened and had to be initially announced by the Microsoft Regional Director before the Club Penguin Rewritten team, but strongly advocate following the team’s security suggestions. “CPPS Safety tips” can always be found on the sidebar of this website as well.

If anymore information is officially released, I will let you know, but please take a moment to ensure that all your online security is up to date.

Thank you,

CP Rewritten: Medieval Paper on Thursday

This is just a super quick post to inform you that the next edition of the Club Penguin Rewritten Times is being postponed until Thursday! The reason cited for the one day delay is that the newspaper will be visibly themed around the Medieval Party, which starts on the same day.

[The] upcoming newspaper is a themed one so it will be releasing on Thursday

Small Bursts of Imagination Pitch Rejected

You may remember from a couple of weeks ago that there were plans from former Club Penguin staff members to create a documentary on Lance Priebe’s (rsnail) games, and a trailer was even released! If you’re unaware of this, you can find some more details here.

I promised that I would keep you informed regarding this documentaryo, and unfortunately, Chris Gliddon (Polo Field) gave an update last night that this movie pitch had not been selected by Storyhive.

Update on our movie pitch: looks like our pitch wasn’t selected for the Storyhive program. That’s okay! We’ll find a different way to make this thing happen. Thanks for your support!

-Chris Gliddon, one of the people behind the planned documentary

Lance Priebe (rsnail) who the documentary is primarily intended to focus on

That doesn’t mean a film relating to Lance Priebe’s work is completely out of the question though! As Screenhog, a former Club Penguin artist, said:

There’s certainly enough fan interest in Club Penguin to make this [film] a reality. It’s just a matter of tapping into it.

-Screenhog

But unfortunately, the idea was not accepted for the $50K production grant. I’ll let you know if anything else regarding the project is revealed though!

CP Rewritten: Earthquakes Occurring

Although the Medieval Party has been delayed until August 1st, earthquakes are now occurring on the Club Penguin Rewritten island!

The effects of the earthquake can be seen across the island, there’s cracks in the Town and Plaza, the Pizza Parlor has been damaged, a lot of the lighting has been disabled, and the Coffee Shop is receiving peculiar flashes of darkness.

Every half an hour, there’s major shakes. Gary claims that these earthquakes reflects the power of the mysterious Dragon Queen, who is likely due to dominate the upcoming party.

CP Rewritten Times: Issue #116 – Medieval Delay

A new edition of the Club Penguin Rewritten Times has been released, and whilst it foreshadows the Medieval Party slightly more, the main story is that this party has now been delayed until next week with earthquakes occurring on the island to compensate.

For the best experience, I would recommend reading the paper for yourself online as it always contains a variety of cool things such as artwork, but as always, I will summarise the news revealed.

This paper revealed:

  • The Medieval Party has been pushed back until August 1st (and therefore will last until August 15th). In a blog post statement, the reason cited were development issues. As a result of this, the igloo contest planned has also been pushed back until this date. To compensate, an earthquake is currently occurring on the island reflecting the “power” of the Dragon Queen, according to Gary
  • A new pin will be released on August 1st and a new Penguin Style edition on August 8th

CP Rewritten: Exploring Different Igloo Tools

Just two weeks ago, the Club Penguin Rewritten team released four igloo locations. Since then, many have been wondering about the possibility of having no igloo, as well as a more modern design system.

The more modern design system is generally considered to be the better one, as it allows for three igloo designs to be saved instead of just one, due to a “Save Igloo” feature.

However, the team have now commented on the possibility of this being brought to the game, explaining that they are currently exploring the different options dependent on user feedback.

We are looking into different igloo tools we can add to the game. The igloo location is just a push in the right direction for us, judging from the public’s reaction, a lot of people want more and we always listen to user feedback.

-stu, Club Penguin Rewritten

I personally hugely prefer the more modern igloo design system over the older one, simply because it’s so handy to be able to save igloos! Thank you very much for reading, waddle on!

CP Rewritten: Blue Knight’s Armour Likely

In the recently updated login screen for the Medieval Party starting on July 25th, the Club Penguin Rewritten team featured a knight which seems to be wearing some blue armour that hasn’t been released yet.

This left many players wondering if a blue-themed knight armour could be coming to the island soon, and now the team have hinted at this being more likely, saying to “keep an eye out”!

Initial statement: “Seriously if [Club Penguin Rewritten] release Blue themed Knight’s Armour, this will one of the best Medieval Parties!”

Team’s response: Keep an eye out, we can’t wait to share with you all what we have planned for the Medieval Party!”

-stu, Club Penguin Rewritten administrator

The image above is from the bottom right of the new log-in screen, when lightened up a bit. It definitely does seem that a blue-themed knight armour is very likely now!
