Puffle’s Past February 19, 2009

In honor of the upcoming Puffle Party, I dug really deep to find out the history of the puffle. It’s hard to believe now, but when Club Penguin launched, there were no puffles at all. At that time, the community of Club Penguin asked if they could have some kind of pet to adopt for their igloo, and we decided that, instead of using animals that already existed, we wanted to make up a completely new creature for the penguins to adopt.

We started sketching some ideas of what a Club Penguin pet might look like, and now, showing for the first time ever, here are some of those original sketches from November 2005: (above)

Some of the ideas were combined, and the puffle as we know it now was born (although we liked the propeller one enough that we gave the green puffle a propeller cap to fly around with). We’d love to know what your very favorite thing is about puffles.

I think that the top middle design looks mostly like the puffle today. I think that now, if they added a new animal, that it would be kind of weird, expecially if they change the design of the puffle one day.

Puffle’s are a very important part to Club Penguin. They make you happy if you are sad. They make you smile when you are frowning. They give you light when you are in dark, They make you have fun when you are bored. If Club Penguin did not have puffles, then Club Penguin would be boring.

Screenhog on making items

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).

Step 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.

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!

Happy77 Asks a Game Designer

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.

Cool 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!

Screenhog talks Dance Contest game!

Hi Everyone! Screenhog here.  

The Night Club is one of the oldest rooms in Club Penguin, dating back to the very beginning. Since the start of Club Penguin, making our penguins dance has been a popular activity. Lots of you asked for it, so it seemed only natural that we introduce a dance game that included a multiplayer mode.

I wanted to show you a sketch from way back when we were first designing the Dance Contest game:BreakdanceImage[1].jpgIf you get to this part in the game, you can see what it looks like now – With, of course, some color and animation…! Let us know what you think.

Until then…Waddle on!
