Club Penguin is an online-based, massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) created by New
Big Cp Logo
Horizon Interactive on October 24, 2005. It involves a virtual world, featuring a large range of minigames and other online activities, and is based on a snowy island, after which the game is named. Players control cartoon, penguin avatars to move about the island and interact with one another. Club Penguin has been noted as sharing similarities with other popular browser-based online environments such as RuneScape and Habbo Hotel, such as the use of an in-game currency to purchase virtual items and pets, named "puffles". The game is specifically designed for players within the ages of 6-14, thus child safety is a vital responsibility of the game's developers. Club Penguin's official business Number is 1-888-861-4111. Their customer support e-mail address is support@clubpenguin.com. The game was founded by Lance Priebe, who uses the account name rsnail and Lane Merrifield, who uses the account name Billybob. It is now estimated that over 90 million people worldwide play the game, which was originally built on a Smart Fox Server.
