End of an Era: Club Penguin’s Shutting Down


One of my favorite games, and it makes me an awful person to admit this, is “How fast can we get banned from Club Penguin?”  Don’t lie, you’ve done it too. You log into Club Penguin, and say just horrible things until the auto-banning system claims you. It usually doesn’t last long unless you’re terribly clever.  It’s not even about being vile; it’s about utilizing thinly-veiled bullshit. Anyone can just log in and swear, or use racial epithets.  It takes someone of great class and cunning to go further.  So on March 29th, across the Internet, people will take their toboggans off in sadness, in respect. Club Penguin, the above-mentioned game, one of the greatest PC masterpieces of this or any generation will be shutting its doors forever. Gone are the days of scaling mountains as an adorable penguin, playing fun online games with your pals, bashing other Penguin groups on Myspace and Livejournal. . . It’s leaving us, and it’s never coming back. A lot of people have complained that the Club Penguin admin do not listen to their audience, but I’m inclined to disagree.


Because you see, that gaping hole that was left in our hearts, and on our browsers will not be gone forever. There is a new game coming; it will change how you perceive the world around you and brighten the darkness that shrouded your existence when Club Penguin faded away. It’s called. . .


Club. Penguin. Island. It’s even better because now it’s an island! And what’s the purpose of an island? To get away, generally, as a vacation. To relax, and have fun! Do you relax and have fun at your computer now? Of course not! There’s no Club Penguin soon! So where will Club Penguin Island be located? On your mobile device. That’s right, Club Penguin Island is a mobile-only title, that you can pre-register for, so as soon as Club Penguin disappears, you’ll have something to hold onto, a buoy in the darkness. It’s going to save us. Why would I play Dragonball Z Dokkan Battle, or Fire Emblem Heroes, or even Pokemon Go? Disney Interactive heard your cries for help, and decided now you can play Club Penguin anywhere you want! It’s coming. Follow. The Penguins.

    Follow the penguins? I’m not 100% certain I like this new Bray Wyatt gimmick.

    I never took part in this game. But I know about it. SO that means it must have had reach. And when something that was a part of so many lives goes away, for whatever reason, it matters.

    Maybe not a whole lot in the grand scheme of things, But this certainly means a lot to some people. And that matters.
