Club Penguin

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.
Jump to: navigation, search

This little browser game, now owned by Disney, centers on users' personal penguin avatars, and their little lives. The game is somewhere in between a social network and a life simulation. You can chat with other people, buy and care for a pet, buy clothes, buy and furnish your igloo, and even change the color of your little penguin avatar. All of this is paid for by little minigames you can play in the little world. Some games are competitions with other penguins, while some are solo games. However, most of the interesting things you can buy, you can get only if you pay for your account.

The game itself doesn't provide much in terms of story. The closest thing to a plot the game provides comes in the form of the Penguin Security Agency's missions, in which the player has to protect the island from any threats. Most of these threats come from Herbert P. Bear, a polar bear who floated to the island via iceburg and is now trying to wreak havoc on the islanders, and Klutzy, his pet crab. After the eleventh mission, the PSA was disbanded and turned into the Elite Penguin Force.
