I bet you weren’t expecting a blog post like this ever again… SURPRISE! As you all know, Club Penguin Rewritten and its services are now back online, and I’m sure you have a lot of questions regarding it.
I’m here to answer questions that are highly asked on our Twitter page, if you have any other questions, you may ask down below in the comments.
Why did Club Penguin Rewritten shut down in the first place?
Originally, we closed the doors to Club Penguin Rewritten due to the stressful environment, as teenagers, it can be difficult for us to maintain such a huge game filled with new users every day. The funding was also tough on a game like this, this wasn’t something we took donations from freely, we had no paid advertisements involved with our game, the community ran it.
So, what made you bring it back?
The community. We realized that after Club Penguin Rewritten shut down, many penguins turned to us to figure out where they could go, what server they could go to, and we didn’t know ourselves other than the official game being Club Penguin Island from Disney. However, with enough supporters from the community and funding, we managed to bring the game back to reach our audience once more and to give an exciting adventure for all to explore again.
How are we able to log into our old accounts?
A game as large as Club Penguin Rewritten requires backups, different kinds, during the time of closure, we had no sense in our mind that we wanted to re-open as that wasn’t an option we were planning on taking, however, as time went on and more supporters came rolling through, we decided to look into Club Penguin Rewritten after a month of closure and recovered an encrypted backup that was locally stored so nobody could access it.
Do you plan on shutting down again?
We don’t plan on re-opening to just shut down within a short span, we know how much Club Penguin Rewritten means to many online, it’s not just a game to some, it’s a place to meet new friends and even then, friendship can grow outside of a little island. We will try our hardest to keep Club Penguin Rewritten running for as long as possible.
What happened to the website?
Don’t panic! We introduced a few sneak peeks about this new website on our Twitter pages, and with the relaunch, the new website is here for release too!
