Festive times are heading our way, which means more content for your eyes, and perhaps a lot of Christmas music for your ears.
The content we push out for you all is important. The community is always in the hearts of ours when creating content updates for the island for you all to discover and experience.
We’ve released a lot of catalogs for the event that’s going on currently on the island, hyping you up to what’s to come and giving you a chance to decorate your igloos with a calming vibe to it. Upon heavy requests from our community, we’ve also released the classic igloo for the first time in the igloo catalog!
This year we released our biggest Halloween party ever, reaching up to many thousands of players logging in each day to collect new items, meeting Gary, doing quests, and more!
Did you know that one of the meet-ups for Gary was actually recorded and uploaded on our official YouTube channel? Check to see if you were noticed by watching the video here
Over the past year, we’ve been noticing players struggling with interaction with their puffles which put their stats at a still point.
We pushed out an update to fix these issues. Several tests and fixes were done during this time to get the perfect balance between giving a certain amount of food or activities to your pet and them reacting to it with their stats of hunger, energy and rest.
We’ve been looking into community feedback about this, especially with the postcards being sent to the player and how fast or slow some stats go down. Changes will be made depending on if they seem fit for it.
As you all know, the island has been shaking with rumours, or could that have been the volcano that erupted next to the Dojo this week… HMmmMM.
The volcano is starting to create more of a storyline on the island. First the island sky turning orange rather than your typical blue colour, to construction being placed at the hideout of the Dojo on the island, what could this mean?
It’s no secret that a new path is about to be created for all ninjas across the island, creating a new challenge for all penguins to compete in. It’s up to you to take the journey, and earn more than just a black belt in the arts of Card-Jitsu, introducing Fire.
You’ll be able to do the following:
• Compete up to four penguins on a single mat
• Unlock a new heated room filled with penguins
• Embark on a mysterious journey
• Collect new items for your penguin the more you play
EXTRA! EXTRA! READ ALL ABOUT IT!
Some extra stuff for your amazing eyes that won’t make it in the in-game section, and is mostly an excuse to have more space on this blog post.
We spoke about our Two-Factor Authentication change for Club Penguin Rewritten in our last blog post for this series, however, it’s still currently in the development/talk phase.
It’s definitely something that we’re looking into deeply and we hope to release it very shortly for all penguins that wish to keep their accounts more extra secure and all that epic stuff.
And yes, you will still receive a padlock pin for your penguin once you’ve enabled this feature. It’s something that we’ve not changed our decision on, we’ll still be making changes as the times go by, and once the release happens, another separate blog post will be made to help you with it.
Hear Our Voices in PODCAST MODEEEE
If you’ve been living under an igloo these past few months and ignoring our orange banners on the play page (please acknowledge us) then you might’ve not noticed our podcasts that we happen to be doing monthly, or whenever the time fits right for the occasion.
We’ll be doing a podcast this month to celebrate the release of Card-Jitsu Fire. This means that you’ll be able to laugh at our voices, and laugh at us losing Card-Jitsu Fire against you all, it’s two in one, what’s not to be excited about?
You can also watch our past podcast here where we speak about sneak peeks, charity work, and a QnA session with Screenhog who worked for classic Club Penguin.
A Code From A Book
Recently, we’ve been seeing a lot of penguins wondering where certain penguins are getting exclusive items from. This is perhaps from our Treasure Book collection that we recently released on Club Penguin Rewritten for all members to explore if given a code.
You may be wondering how you get these codes, and I’m here to hopefully put some light on the entire situation. You can collect these exclusive Treasure Book codes by our giveaways or chances of us releasing certain codes in other ways that we might decide on in the future if given feedback and ways to do so in a fair way.
BUGS + FIXES
Prepare your popcorn and soda machine hat that you’ve been saving up for this special moment, it’s time to embrace ourselves in the technical part
Almighty Bug Fixes:
• Fixed an issue where popular servers would crash. [Insert it’s been 84 years gif here]
• You now exit a Find Four game in the correct location and not at the previous location your penguin was in (Shout-out to those that walked a mile to get back to the Ski Lodge during this time)
• Features of puffle stats are now working.
• Wings/capes now show up on your playercard, become a pookie with more joy now!
• Coins no longer give negative coins being caused by puffles, who would’ve thought?
(Thank you to members of the community that sent us thousands of tweets showcasing your negative coins to us.)
WHAT THE FUTURE HOLDS
The future is a magical place and very unpredictable, we try to make it more predictable with fun twists and turns for your excitement
A new Holiday cheer coming means a new party coming, and that’s CHRISTMAS!! A lot of you penguins have been wondering if we’ll be having a Christmas event this year and the answer is yes, we’ll be celebrating the Winter holidays with you all on the island and we can’t wait to show you what’s in store closer to the time.
Where That Ice Rink At Though
We hear you loud and clear, and that’s why we’ll be changing the stadium from the summer feel to the winter feel in the upcoming week. This also means that you’ll be getting an extra catalog located at the Ice Rink to fit in with the change.
Unfortunately, I’m unable to give you all a full list of what’s to come to the island, but a LOT is happening behind the scenes and it’s truly exciting, I can’t wait to share with you our sneak peeks, for now it’s best to keep up-to-date with our social media pages and our What’s New blog!
