Hey guys, Jade here.
I wouldn’t really call this an update, but I just want to….. express my feelings, I suppose, about something that happened yesterday.
It was 3 in the after noon; I had just gotten out of school. I took my phone out and turned on mobile data. I got a notification that I have received an email from none other than The Club Penguin Team, titled ‘Important Message about Club Penguin,’ and I was shocked to say the least. The email read:
Thank you for being a part of the amazing Club Penguin community.
As you know, over the past few years, we’ve been hard at work developing an entirely new Club Penguin experience for mobile. With this next chapter, we will be launching an amazing new product, Club Penguin Island, that offers a uniquely penguin experience, with new features and gameplay, making it more fun than ever.
As part of the launch of Club Penguin Island in March, we will be transitioning to an entirely new platform, and, we’ve made the decision to discontinue the current Club Penguin game on desktop and mobile devices on March 29, 2017.
Until that date, penguins can log in to Club Penguin and play. Please note, our current Club Penguin app will also be removed from the App Store and the Google Play Store on February 27, 2017.
We are deeply grateful for your time and enthusiasm since the beginning, and we’d like to thank each and every one of you in the Club Penguin community – we can’t wait for you to see what’s coming next.
Please stay tuned to learn more about Club Penguin Island, which will be launching soon in select languages and territories for mobile devices.
Now, other than Fantage, I also played Club Penguin, and knew quite a bit of trivia about it too.
I was all over it, even managing to get a free membership for a week during the Holiday Party 2012 event, at just the age of 10. I’ve met Rockhopper and had him on my friendlist; I even saw the inside of his igloo.
Those days when Thinknoodles was still active on Club Penguin Insiders, those days where there were secret items in the clothing catalog, the old secret agent test that I found out how to pass after it was removed, PSA missions, Operation Blackout, Aunt Arctic being The Director of the Elite Penguin Force, Dot being a girl (she seriously looked like a guy in the last PSA mission, #11: The Veggie Villain).
As a player who has experienced being a member and regular member, I feel confident to say that I’ve see this community grow. As of me typing this post, my penguin is 1721 days old.
1721 days ago was on:
May 20, 2012
I joined on Sunday, May 20, 2012, in 4th grade. It’s been close to five years now, and I’m disappointed that I will not reach 2000 days old, nor will I reach 5 years. It feels like an honor to have been part of this wonderful community, experiencing 4 years of Coins For Change, giving our currency in which Disney gives back to other communities in need around the world. I feel grateful to have given all the coins I had left during the event, now leaving me with less that 50 coins left.
I guess I just want to say, thanks Club Penguin.
You’ve really brought happiness into millions of lives, and created memories that will never be forgotten.
Now, lets enjoy and cherish our final days on this island of Club Penguin.
Although the original Club Penguin is going to close soon, there IS still a way to play.
