Less than a year after laying off more than 60 employees, Club Penguin has decided to let go of 28 more. The same way that happens when we lost Polo Field, and due to the layoffs, we’ve lost fourmore of Club Penguin’s bloggers: Daffodaily5 from the English blog, Karlapop321 from the Spanish blog, Koa Koralle from the German blog, and Loustik005 from the French blog last year ago, and now this.
The 28 figure is confirmed, however according to Castanet, a news website for Kelowna and the surrounding areas, a source told them that 28 is the exact number. The article also mentions that it’s possible that more employees will be let go from the California office, as the 28 employees let go on Friday are all from Canada.
Another news website, TechVibes, has a bit more information, albeit unconfirmed. It says that employees from different sections such as QA, programming, and even the art team were let go.
While I’m skeptical about their source of this information, the TechVibes article also states that the employees were let go as Club Penguin no longer needs many people from their 2D team as they are moving towards the 3D version of Club Penguin, which we know as Project Super Secret. The article also goes as far as claiming that PSS will be mobile only. Of course, this is all unconfirmed, and thus I suggest treating it with scepticism for the time begin.
Bye for now,
I emailed the Club Penguin Support about the throwback party called St. Patrick Day Party that was being held at the Puffle Party back in 2012, the last time it was around. I was hoping for them to have a throwback party since there will be a Puffle Party this March too. Click on read more to see what they said to me.
A week has passed since Herbert begun his Laser Dancer Party at the Snow Forts so the next part of his OPERATION DOOM plan has gone into effect, this time at the Town with a new pin hidden!
Today when Club Penguin updated, they also let loose images of 11 upcoming pins, all of which are puffle related. In fact, all but one of them resemble the berries found in the now nonexistent Puffle Wild game.
3 days ago, on the Club Penguin Blog Megg posted another Project Super Secret sneak peek, this time of the Fun Hut. It looks pretty neat….and fun. 😛
While we still don’t know specifically what Project Super Secret is, here is what Megg wrote about the Fun Hut:
Remember back to our Project: Super Secret post about the welcome area for new players?
You may have noticed that it mentioned a “Fun Hut” in one of the images… well here’s a concept image of it for you:
You can also see this in the image Spike Hike shared last month!
What do you think would be behind the counters at this Fun Hut? Let us know in the comments below.

Personally, I like the graphics look great. I’m looking forward to seeing and learning more about PSS this year.
Also, on a slightly related note…
