Have you seen the number yet? We have reached the 30th post of my Island Discussion series and I am proud of what we have accomplished, so far. Mysteries still linger which is what makes them exciting but it has been an immense journey which I have thoroughly enjoyed. Thank you to everyone who reads my Island Discussions and I appreciate all of the engagements within the discussions that have brought the topic this far.
For today’s topic, I want to talk about the future and how it could, potentially, have an impact on the island’s deepest mysteries. As you may know, Project: Super Secret is inbound and a lot of us are excited. This project is going to revamp everything in Club Penguin and make it 3D. Therefore, we will be able to advance our journey to a deeply vibrant virtual world which will have a lot more depth (at least we think it will). Consequently, we would assume that this will only mean that mysteries will get better and more extensive. I mean, what else would an upgrade deliver to us?
Even though the next big thing for Club Penguin looks incredible, we need to remember that the project was originally the creation of a new app called Disney Mix. For some reason, the 3D rendering of Club Penguin was never originally considered until the team figured out a way to link, both, Disney Mix and Club Penguin together. Disney Mix was meant to give Club Penguin players the opportunity to enhance their conversations because everyone knows how unsatisfactory the chat filter is. However, it seems that the team took a new approach; what if Club Penguin took over Disney?
This resulted in a bigger project which leads the team to work on enhancing the technology Club Penguin uses so that it will become more efficient as an MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game). I think it is safe to say that everyone in the Club Penguin community is stoked to hear this. If Club Penguin unveiled to us that this “super secret project” was – actually – the development of a new app called Disney Mix (which only incorporates Club Penguin within it) we all would have felt deceived. In fact, I can show you what Spike Hike tweeted the other day which is the source of all this.
“Disney Mix is what I meant when I announced Project Super Secret. But then somehow that became the name of the new CP.”
I think what Spike Hike is trying to say is, basically, what I said previously. When he mentions that Disney Mix “became the name of the new CP”, this may also mean that new Club Penguin will be called ‘Club Penguin Re-Mix’ but those rumours are still not confirmed. The point I am trying to make is that this enhancement, which is currently being made to aid the game, was only developed to assist the release of Disney Mix and vice versa. To make these two elements work together, they need to share the same technology. Continue reading
