Greetings Penguins!

Happy77 here. Those of you that saw Billybob's video blog may remember that he mentioned an updated Puffle experience. Guess what? It's coming this Thursday!

I wanted to get you the inside scoop, so I asked a programmer a few questions about the new improvements:

What improvements has the team made to the puffle experience?

The biggest thing is that we've added stat bars back. Other than that we've added notifications and puffle emotes. If your puffle needs something, a little notification will pop up in-world to let you know you need to take care of your puffle. And if you go to your igloo and your puffle really needs your attention, a little icon bubble will appear over his/her head to let you know what to do.

What's your favorite thing that's coming out this week?

Stat bars! They really help you understand how different items affect your puffles and what you need to do to keep them happy. They work way better than the original stat bars.

A few people have asked me why penguins are bigger in igloos now. Why are they bigger in igloos?

When we updated the igloo puffle art we noticed that the igloo puffles had really grown in relation to penguins. In fact, they were almost the same size as their penguin owners! It didn't look right, so we decided to make the penguins a little bigger to match the new puffle size. We also think that an igloo is a penguin's home, so it should feel a little cozier than being outside in the world. Having bigger penguins seemed to help this.

What's your favorite puffle hat? ;)

The sombrero hat, it looks pretty funny!

Hope that was helpful! I'm really excited about the new puffle stat bars. Let me know what you're most excited about in the comments below!

Waddle On! :)

Hello Penguins!

It's a busy time here at the Club Penguin offices. The team is working day and night to get ready for a HUGE month of new stuff for you. It's very exciting! I wanted to give you a quick heads up about what's coming next week:

Puffle Hats coming early: The team is working hard over the weekend to release hats for puffles as early as this Tuesday! Not only that, but this month's clothing catalog is coming early, too!!

The Fair ending on Monday: To make way for some of the big stuff that's coming, this year's Fair will be ending tomorrow. So you'll have a bit more time to earn these Stamps:

  • Rockhopper: Be in the same room as Rockhopper
  • Happy Room: Make 10 penguins smile in a room
  • Snack Shack: Serve snacks from a booth, using any food emote
  • Target Champion: Hit 50 targets in a task at a party

Igloo party video: Happy77 and the team are going to look for some great igloo parties on Monday to feature in a new video! Make sure your igloo is open so the team can check out your party!

Hello Penguins!

Thanks to everyone that picked up a copy of Puffle Launch on their iPods, iPhones and iPads... You guys made it a Top 10 app on the App Store!

Back when we announced the mobile version, many of you asked for the game on your Android device. I'm happy to say... Puffle Launch is available on the Android Market TODAY!

Let us know what you think of the Android version, and what you'd like to see improved in future updates. We'd love to hear your thoughts on how to make it better.

Until then... Waddle On!

Hello Penguins!

Some of you have let us know that your buddy list looks empty right now. 

Just wanted to let you know that the team is still working hard to squash this pesky bug.

UPDATE: The team is working on some server updates right now. Thanks for letting us know about the issues some of you are experiencing with your current buddy lists. And thanks again for your patience!

Hello Penguins!

I'm really excited about the next few months in Club Penguin. The team has been working really hard behind the scenes to create some brand new stuff for you... and it's all starting in October! 

Tonight we're doing some major updates to get the servers ready for some HUGE stuff. As I mentioned last week, sometimes when we do major updates, we end up with some bugs to squash. As always, let us know if you find any, and the team will do their best to squash them as soon as possible! 

Instead of writing about the brand new stuff, I thought I'd tell you about it in a video instead:

Until then... Waddle On!
