Club Penguin History

This club penguin history guide will show you all about how club penguin was started and a little about the history of CP.

Club Penguin originally started off as a game called Penguin Chat that was developed by RocketSnail. There we’re only three rooms in the original penguin chat and those 3 rooms we’re the coffee shop, the dance club, and the boiler room.

The Original Dance Club:

Also important to the club penguin history is the fact that there was also a room for the penguin store but it was only used to sell Penguin Chat Merchandise.

Over time penguin chat started adding more rooms like the snow forts and a construction site. During this stage penguin chat started using beta testers to test out all of the new rooms and areas on club penguin.

Then finally on October 25, 2005 Club Penguin as we know it was officially launched and all of penguin chat was just history.

Now here’s a look back at the old club penguin for all the people who play CP now but never played it when it first came out. Think of it as a jump back into the history of club penguin.

First off here is the original homepage used for the first launch of club penguin. (4-5 Years Ago)

After about a year using that login screen club penguin decided to upgrade the login and homepage to this:
