What's New?

Hi Penguins,


I’ll be continuing the major throwbacks on the island, unfortunately due to many situations happening, we had to calm down the blog posts for a bit but we’ve seen a lot of players asking for them to return, especially in the comments.


Because it is Friday and not Thursday, I thought I’d name this one just a Flashback Friday instead. The regular schedule will be back to normal starting next Thursday for these type of blog posts if it all goes well.


Join me on a journey of darkness as we go through a road blindly and by that we mean the lack of light that was given during this time. You see, Herbert’s plan was to simply block all sun light on the island and making himself receive the paradise in his very own base that no penguin was supposed enter.



Before the chaos was created by the menacing bear, a dangerous event occurred prior to Operation Blackout that resulted in Gary the Gadget Guy in the hands (paws?) of Herbert himself. To make things interesting this blog post, I will be speaking of how we thought of doing our first event and how we actually pulled it off.


To do this, we must go back months to the event happening. This was planned for a very long time, it was simply a single thought in our heads of doing this event that players could interact with in real-time, we wanted the island to be buzzed and filled with questions. What is happening, why is this happening, and what could this be leading up to? Those were the main questions we wanted players to be asking.




We firstly recorded this small but exciting event behind the scenes to see how it would look like for others on the island, you can view this same footage here. Our way of doing this was to have Gary the Gadget Guy join the penguins on the island for one final mascot visit, with giving hints to mysterious activity on the island and that would also include himself being rather nervous, giving an uneasy feeling to the visit.


The uneasy feeling of Gary, mixed with the small details and hints of Herbert’s presence across multiple parties on the island was a perfect finish and a very uneasy entrance of what is to come…




As the players surrounded the Snow Forts in a worrying state, we were also in that very same state. We had many doubts of this event working for everyone on the island, this was the first time Herbert would be an interactive character with his full personality showing for visitors. However, we were on a schedule and the show went on. Within a few minutes of the event happening, we updated the server without players noticing, this allowed Herbert to become visible for everyone without causing issues (for cache).


The show started and it was a disaster… Literally. Herbert got what he wanted, the start of his plan to take over the island. A success on the development side, but a true side of questions for the penguins.



Operation Blackout had different phrases of the snow that was building up due to the lack of sun, however, the final phase was in victory of all agents on the island. Herbert’s plan was defeated, it only required penguins becoming something they were against; crabs and bears. A victory, but perhaps a victory for Herbert himself, this was the longest attack that he had ever planned to take over the island and in some parts it was indeed a success until the agents worked together.


Overall, this was the most memorable event for many on the island. This party came with many hilarious jokes such as how “smooth” the Iceberg looked during Operation Blackout, and we must admit, that was a pretty smooth berg. Most importantly, the party came with a message and that message was teamwork.


Teamwork is important for both fear and doubt, if you have a single friend with you, that fear fades away and becomes an obstacle you can overcome — together!


Until then… Waddle on!

Maybe this is the reasons Club penguin is shutdown cause Herbeart Bear was destroy club penguin island at all, even Herbert says “ENJOY IT BEFORE I DESTROY IT!” and…. Maybe its, the reason the game shutdown..

I missed this party, but maybe that was a good thing, as afterwards, the whole island had to dug out.

Digging out the Dojo is fine, that’s just one spot, but doing it for the WHOLE ISLAND is a little much for me, personally.
