Hello Penguins! 

We’ve heard from a lot of you today as you’re discovering how your puffles are playing with their furniture! Thanks for your feedback and we want you to know that the team is working really hard to fix some of the bugs you are experiencing with your puffles.
sparkle-fullbars1.jpgSome of you aren’t sure about how to get your puffles to play with their furniture. If you click on your puffle cards, you can ask them to play, eat, or sleep. They’ll only play if their health is full or almost full, so keep them well fed and well rested! 

 

Thanks for your patience. We’ll let you know as soon as the bugs are fixed.

 

Until then…Waddle on!

Hello Penguins!
 
The team’s excited because TODAY puffles can finally play with their furniture! You’ve been suggesting it for a long time, and it’s one of the ways we’re celebrating puffles this month.
 
puffleplaywin.jpg
Try putting some furniture in your igloo and click your puffle card to ask your puffle to play, sleep, or eat. Puffles have minds of their own, so you might see them using furniture on their own, without you even asking them to! But remember, their health will only increase if you click their puffle cards. We may need to do a few tweaks, so let us know what you discover as your puffles are playing. We can’t wait to hear what you think!
 
Some of you have asked where your other pet items have gone (because they’re not where they used to be in your inventory).  Now only furniture items that puffles can play with are in the pet inventory. Check the other sections of your igloo inventory to find any items that may have moved.
 
Until then…Waddle on!

Greetings Penguins! 

We get lots of awesome comments from Penguins about productions at the Stage. Since Team Blue and Team Red face off tomorrow, (and since it’s always cool to learn new stuff), I thought it’d be groovy-cool to talk to someone who works helping to draw the Stage sets.

stage2.jpgDo you just read the Stage scripts after they’re written and then draw what you want?
We do them together. We draw as the writers are putting in ideas and suggestions.

What’s your favorite part of drawing for the stage?
Creating a whole tiny world in one room. Sometimes when I get into it, it feels like I’m actually in a fairy tale forest or in an old detective movie. It’s so much fun!

Have you ever drawn candy (or food) for any of the stages?
Well, I’ve drawn some alien beverages one time… but I try not to draw too much food, otherwise I’d get hungry!

Let us know if you have any more questions for the Club Penguin team – It’d be awesome to know what your favorite Stage is – and why!

Until then…Waddle on!

Hello Penguins! 

We’re so excited to share some amazing news! Many of you have asked to play Club Penguin in different languages. The team’s been working really hard on it, and today, just a few months after we added the Portuguese language, we’re thrilled to announce that Club Penguin can now be played in French!!
 
french launch.JPG
When you login to play, you’ll see that you can select English, Portuguese, or French. When you select one of the languages, EVERYTHING in the game is in that language! Cool! More languages will be coming and we’ll let you know as soon as they’re ready!

To help celebrate Club Penguin in French, here are a few French phrases –
Welcome = Bienvenue
Congratulations = Félicitations !
You’re cool = T’es génial !

Until then…Waddle on!
A bientôt !

Hello Penguins! 

Cool stuff is coming on Friday when you’ll notice that your puffles will be playing more with their furniture items!! If you’ve already got puffles and puffle furniture, you don’t need to buy more — just get ready to watch the new ways they sleep, play, and eat. The best part is that their health will increase, too!bed1.jpgYou can buy puffle furniture at the Pet Shop in the catalog. We’d love to know what you (and your puffles) think!

Until then… Waddle on!

Hello Penguins! 

It was great to see all the comments about the upcoming Puffle Party that’ll be in Club Penguin from Feb. 20 – 24. The team loved to hear that you’re totally excited about it and we really want to know what your all-time favorite party has been in Club Penguin.  Which one did you love the most, and why did you think it was the best? If you can’t remember all the parties your penguin has been to, check out the Yearbooks in the Book Room to refresh your memory.

Hello Penguins! 

The new Penguin Style catalog is in the Gift Shop today so check it out and let us know what you think about all the back to basic items. A lot of you were asking for a return of the black hoodie… and guess what? It’s back!

Hello Penguins. Screenhog here. 

Decide, Design, Draw, 3D… We thought you might want to see how we make an item for Club Penguin:
 
Step 1: Decide. Usually, items are related to what events are happening that month, or where it will be used (like the costumes in the Costume Trunk).

Step 2: Design it. A rough drawing is made of what we think the item should look like (in this case, a tuba).

aTubaRoughFinala.gifStep 3: A final drawing is made. This is a clean-up of the rough drawing, with detail, color, and shading added. The icon is also made (this is the drawing of the item that’s in your inventory).
 
Step 4: The clothing item is then made in 3D.
aTuba3D_02a.gif 
aTuba3D_01a.jpg
Finally, it’s done!
 
Are there any clothing items that you’d like us to make? Are there any older clothing items that you would like to come back?

Until then…Waddle on!

Greetings Penguins, 

How are you doing with the new Dance Contest game in the Night Club? The team’s really excited about it (we love to dance!) and I wanted to give you the game scoop from someone who helps design them in Club Penguin.

Q: So what’s your absolute fave game in Club Penguin and why?
A: Treasure Hunt (I love it partly because I got to help Screenhog make it and partly because it’s multiplayer). I also like playing Cart Surfer and Jet Pack Adventure. I like Catchin’ Waves… but I’m not terribly good at it.

Q: Do you eat candy while you create games?
A: Loads of it – But we’ve got healthy candy… like those grain bars.

Q: What do you like best about games in general?
A: It’s brilliant when you get to play games with friends.

dance.jpgCool game update today – the team’s been working hard to squish bugs, and Paint By Letters is available in the Book Room so check it out! And…let us know what kind of things you want to know about Club Penguin and I’ll try to dig up some answers for you!

Until then…Waddle on!

Hello Penguins!

We hear from a lot of you that you love the parties in Club Penguin…  And even though the member dance party just finished up, we’ve got another one coming!! The Fiesta Party will warm up Club Penguin from January 23 – 25th, and we hope you’re going to love the decorations and surprises. Here’s a peek of what you’ll see starting this Friday!

Hello Penguins,
We received an overwhelming amount of emails and comments from all of you members over the weekend thanking us for the Dance Party–but WE should be thanking you!

member.jpg

It’s because of you that we are able to keep turning the great ideas and suggestions from the community into reality in Club Penguin. Without you guys we wouldn’t be able to make Club Penguin as fun and safe as it is for everyone. So thank you for all your passion and contribution to the game!
Over the weekend, many of you let us know not only how happy you were we finally had another member party, but asked if we can do more for members in the future.
We are listening – and the answer is yes! This year, we’re going to be adding more creative and exciting activities for you to do as members–and we decided to start now.
The Dance Contest game is going to stick around and we’re giving you the multiplayer mode exclusively! Everyone will be able to play solo, but we wanted to give members something special.

We also decided to add one more thing to the game today, as a way to celebrate being a member. Check your Penguin Mail and look closely at your player card if you’re a member. Right now, only you can see the badge that’s there, but we’re working on making it so that other penguins can see it, too! Let us know what you think.

We will continue making Club Penguin fun for everyone, but without members Club Penguin couldn’t exist.

Until then…Waddle on!

Hello Penguins!
Thanks for your comments about how much fun you’re having at the party! It was supposed to end on Sunday but we decided to extend it until Tuesday!! So member penguins – you and your friends can keep competing and dancing for another few days!
cadence
Some of you have been asking about Cadence and whether or not she will continue to show up at the party over the weekend and I wanted to let you know that she will be! We’ve heard a few concerns that Cadence won’t show up unless the metal landing pad on the rooftop is clear. Don’t worry–she takes the stairs just like you! So feel free to use the entire area to show off your moves!
As always, we love to hear what you think and what you’re doing at the party!

Until then…Waddle on!

Check out this screenshot–Who knew penguins could move like that!

We’d love to hear what you and your friends are up to at the party and how you’re doing with the new Dance Contest game!

Hello Penguins!

Wow – There’s been a lot of buzz about the member event that starts on Thursday! We’re glad you’re excited about it! Dancing is such a fun part of Club Penguin already, and we wanted to use this party to take it a few steps further! 

Get ready to break down some super cool moves because there’s going to be a lot of music and tons of room to dance–you can even get together with your friends and compete in the new Dance Contest Game! There are some cool things planned at the Night Club for the party, including three floors to explore and a chance to meet DJ Cadence! Check out this image–it’s just a bit of what you can expect on Thursday when the party starts.

Remember, the party starts on Thursday, Jan. 15 and goes until Sunday, Jan. 18!

Hello Penguins!

After yesterday’s Screenhog post, a lot of you wrote really awesome haikus as comments – and they were great to read. Today we get to say hello to some cool superheroes because Gamma Gal & Shadow Guy have returned to the Stage to save Club Penguin from Squidzoid!

We love to hear what kind of creative things you’re doing with the costumes and the script, so let us know!

Hi everyone! Screenhog here.
 
We like to hide little hidden references in Club Penguin all the time. Sometimes they are really obvious, like those two puffles at the top of the stage that are like those famous actors masks.

facesblog
But sometimes, there are hidden things. If you’re a ninja, you’ve been able to see this lantern in the catalog:
lanternblog1
The price of the lantern is 575. Do any of you know about the Japanese poems called haiku? The Sensei almost always speaks in haikus. The rule with a haiku is that it’s a three-line poem; the first line has five syllables, the second line has seven syllables, and the third line has five syllables. In other words: 5-7-5.
 
Isn’t that cool? Or do we just have too much time on our hands sometimes?

Waddle on!

Hello Penguins!

On Friday there will be an update to the Stage, and some superhero action will be returning! Get ready to welcome back Shadow Guy, Gamma Gal, and Squidzoid!

Hello Penguins!

Many of you have been asking about a member party and wondering when there would be another one–it’s definitely been a while since the last one.

Well, we’ve been working on exactly that! The next member party will happen in the middle of January, from the 15-18th. But it’s more than just a party–wait till you see what else the team has planned! I’ll have more details next week, and I don’t want to say too much – but I can tell you that some of the items in the new Penguin Style catalog will come in very handy.

I managed to get a sneak peek from the team to show you. See if you can guess what the event might be about…

Greetings Penguins!

Lots of comments are coming in about how you love the new mission, and some of you have asked about the people who make the stories up. So I thought it would be fabulous to talk to someone who helps write the missions…

Who is your fave mission character and why?

Herbert. Because he reminds me a lot of myself.

herbCutout.jpgWhat’s the coolest thing about making up mission stories?
There’s no such thing as an idea that’s too crazy.

Perhaps most importantly, what’s your favorite kind of candy?
Anything with peanut butter in it.

Send along any ideas you have for missions! (And remember – they can’t be too crazy!)
Happy New Year!

Hello Penguins!

Congratulations – You guys did an amazing job donating your virtual coins to Coins For Change! The Club Penguin Times has the official results, so check it out.

coins.jpgIn Other News: After Screenhog’s post, a lot of you told us how excited you are about the new mission coming on Monday. For those of you who are already agents, you can get prepared by playing some of the previous missions! If you aren’t a member of the PSA, you can become one if your penguin is 30 days old. Click on the M at the top right corner of your Club Penguin window, click the button that says “Become a Secret Agent”, and then take the quiz.

We’d love to know what your favorite mission of all time is – and why you like it the most.

Until then…Waddle on!
