Welcome to my first-ever post in my new Flash(back) Club Penguin series! Read more about this new blog series.
What makes our original home quite different from Club Penguin Island, so far? It’s definitely the environment. By that, I mean the weather and even the seasonal feel. Thriving in our home, it seems like winter is a year-round thing, isn’t it? Waddle outside and guess what you will always see? Snow, snow, and more snow! Even the beach and cove is snowy. You don’t make sand castles, you make SNOW castles. That, or the snow is actually very white sand. But I still think it’s snow.
In my eyes, one of the most significant differences between classic and Island is the weather and seasonal atmosphere. So far, there are two outdoor rooms on Island: the Beacon Boardwalk and the Coconut Cove (I just realized alliteration seems to be the thing, uh oops, got off track again). Both of these rooms have a very strong summer vibe. These rooms filled with yellow sand, the ocean, and more. Plus, what you can do on Island pretty much supports this year-round summer party town, like swimming, using an pool inner tube (you can use this anywhere, in or out water!), collecting seashells and seaweed, fishing, and more! However, we can still throw snowballs from anywhere, just like our old home.
On our classic island, it feels like that is where a penguin would actually live, if you consider how the majority of real-life penguin species thrive in cold, snowy environments. Perhaps penguins of Club Penguin Island now represent those lesser-known, real-life penguins that live on beaches.
I understand, though, that CPI is very new and will have new rooms that could closer resemble our former home. For now, though it’s more like a place where penguins would go for a holiday! This is especially because it makes sense that the first rooms would be on the shoreline, the initial places we inhabit upon arrival. Let’s see those new rooms with winter theme, extra cold, and more snow! Then our new home will feel even more like home for us penguins.
