So most of us have played Club Penguin's brand new app, Sled Racer. Well Club Penguin has just released a pretty interested timelapse video on how the game was developed! This behind the scenes look gives us a cool perspective on how the developers managed to create the game!
I love watching behind the scenes videos like these. It's real awesome to watch the process of inventing an awesome creation!
Club Penguin released the 462nd edition of the Club Penguin Times. This week's feature story has been written by Aunt Arctic. This article officially announces the release of the Ice Palace. It tells you what you can do at the Ice Palace in brief.
This week's side story has been written by Aunt Arctic as well. Aunt Arctic conducted an exclusive interview with Olaf, which she published as this week's side story.

The latest issue of Club Penguin Times is a very interesting one, with lots to tell. From the island rumors to the secret files, I think we're all going to like this newspaper. To start of, Aunt Arctic has an articles of Elsa who brought frozen magic to Club Penguin. As if it wasn't frozen enough before!
Here's an interesting post written by PH aka Puffle Handler. She talks about Reindeer, and Anna tells her that they are very important animals; they haul big sleds with heaps of ice on them. And PH says you might find some Reindeer in the forest near Wandering Oaken's Trading Post, so keep an eye out!
Snowman puffles are here, but only for a limited time! They'll leave as soon as Elsa's magic leaves. So make sure to get one as soon as you can.
Spoiler Alert! Now for the island rumors. This week the Island Rumors suggests that not just one of Sensei's mysterious is true!
If you don't know what Sensei's mysterious are, here is the hidden article from last week.
This is a great article, fun to read all-around. And I really am curious as to which of Sensei's rumors are true! Which ones do you think are true? Let me know in the comments!
Today I'm writing a special post to acknowledge a recent issue which has caught my attention. A lot of players have recently been banned from their favorite online game, Club Penguin. All of them are banned — forever — even though some have never been banned once before. They all were following the Club Penguin rules, or so they thought.
Once they called Club Penguin Support to see what happened, they were told they were banned forever due to "Unauthorized Purchase". You see, these players, and many others, bought memberships from a site that was selling them for a lower price. They were buying 6 Month memberships for the price of 1 Month, awesome right?! But it was too good to be true.
The site which these discounted memberships where being sold from got these memberships illegally. They were using stolen credit cards to purchase memberships, then reselling them on the internet to victims who thought the memberships were bought safely from Club Penguin (as it was stated on their site). Once these stolen credit card memberships were linked to your Club Penguin account, it was a matter of days before your account got banned forever, since Club Penguin has a zero tolerance policy on unauthorized purchases.
The worst part of all this is having to see players being punished for actions which they did not intend for. Some players even bought several discounted memberships and gifted them to their friends, who where also banned forever! All these players where simple victims of a scam, as they had no way to ever think these memberships where bought in wrongful manner from a trusted-looking site. The reason I'm writing this is to share some knowledge with all you other readers, and to remind everyone that the only permitted and safe place to purchase a membership is from ClubPenguin.com or in-store membership cards.
If you were a victim of this fraud, loosing your valued Club Penguin account forever is a very heartbreaking and stressful situation. I encourage you to call Club Penguin support and explain your situation as clearly as possible. If a member of the Club Penguin team is reading this, I hope you understand this delicate situation that many players are facing, and to lift forever bans on many of these victims. I hope both players and the Club Penguin team can learn from this situation and continue moving forward in building a safer playing experience.
Looks like Spike Hike wasn't going to be the only one joining in on the trendy ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Three more members of the Club Penguin staff have done it, Polofield, Billybob and Businesmoose! Take a look at their awesome videos.
