Memories are Made of Bliss

Hey guys, it’s Powerflare! This will be my final post on Penguin Generation as it is currently known. After slightly more than 2½ years, I have finally decided to close Penguin Generation for good. To some, this may be shocking and even saddening news; to others, it may not be a surprise at all. The least anyone can do after all the time spent on Penguin Generation is to read the entire post.


Allow me to explain my reasoning behind the decision to close. Ever since January 22, 2009, the day it was created, I’ve been carrying around a burden known as Penguin Generation. The day the original six Moderators created Penguin Generation, well, we had no idea what the heck we were walking into. No idea. Eventually, almost a year later, we discovered the programs necessary to create our game. One Adobe suite later, we were on our way to creating Penguin Generation, the game we dreamed of building for almost a year at this point.

I can still remember first opening Adobe Flash CS4 for the first time. I didn’t even know enough Actionscript to stop on one frame. For that matter, I didn’t know how to do anything. Because of the fact that things weren’t going very well, I didn’t put much effort into creating the game. By now, Penguin Generation had already gone through a semi-dead period where not much of anything took place, but after the failures in Flash, Penguin Generation died.

Fortunately, I always carry my portable defibrillator! 😛 Sometime after it’s unofficial death, I revived Penguin Generation and began posting again and “claiming” to do work, but my apathetic nature toward Flash which was born out of my initial failures had already taken root, and no real work was accomplished. However, at this point, even though I “revived” Penguin Generation, I could feel the weight of the burden of the difficulties of the requirements of making the game Penguin Generation, and I had several doubts in my mind because I wasn’t able to really build the game anyway at the time. I hid behind the excuse of the fact that I didn’t know how to get the servers to work either.

Ultimately, had I tried harder, searched harder, and had been more dedicated, maybe I would have built the game and got the servers up and running much sooner. However, that did not occur, and only after the serious pushes of multiple people did the game actual begin legitimate production. The first month of game building was great, but once I got beyond that, I was flooded with the problems and difficulties of working alone, and it became difficult and almost unbearable, so I took a break—a long one, explaining that the work was difficult and I needed time away from it.

What got me back to work was an illness which caused me to be hospitalized and subsequently stuck in my room for more than a week afterwards. This forced me to work with what I had close to me in regards to occupying myself, which includes my desk with my computers on it. I utilized this opportunity to create the last beta that would ever be released for Penguin Generation. However, once school officially let out, I basically dropped my work and pushed everything aside. The day of August 1, 2011, the day the final decision was made, was the day the summer party was to be released. However, my dad and I wanted to go see Captain America which just came out not too long ago, but this conflicted with the fact that I had to release the summer party. At this point, I knew I had to stop.

Of course, that was not the only real-life scheduling conflicts I’ve run into. It was just the final one I would put up with. This whole time I’ve had to sacrifice so much time and so much energy—and for what? That time could’ve been used to spend with family or friends. That is precious time I cannot recover. I’ve had many sleepless nights due to this game. I’ve spent hundreds to thousands of my own money on this project and all for what? I wasted so much money doing this project. I spent more and more money on something to make it only increasingly more difficult on my life.

Also, from day one, I have been the only real worker here at Penguin Generation. No one else has done anything to contribute to the game. No one. Yeah, I’ve had help with blog themes, headers, ect., but that only saves me a bit of time. What it doesn’t do is save me the 8 hours I might have to spend on a Friday night fixing bugs and glitches. That is not what I want to do with my Friday nights in the school year. Yes, other Mods have done some work, but nothing to ease the burdens of making this game. I’m not saying I don’t appreciate what has been done to help me out—I am thankful for it—but nothing has been done that was useful for making the actual game. So yeah, it may sound conceited or arrogant, and probably hateful and insulting, but I am the only Moderator who has done any real work. I’ve never really considered any other Moderator actually “helpful” because all the real work falls on me, and in the end, the harsh truth which I don’t want to admit but must be said is that Penguin Generation has always been a one-man-army.

In addition to the real-life difficulties of creating this game, I’ve had to deal with the—and I’m sorry to say this—terrible fanbase we’ve had over the years. Don’t get me wrong, we’ve had good fans, but only a small amount. I get badgered every day about turning on the server. I get complaints about not turning on the server. I’ve even gotten a complaint the day after a beta was released about how there should be a newer beta. It’s ridiculous guys! I do so much work for you guys and I hardly ever get any gratitude in return. Even if it’s not complaining, our fans seem to not listen. No matter how many times we say something, tons of people will still ask the same question or complain, even when the matter has been dealt with over months ago. The are hardly more than 3 comments on a normal basis, which shows lackluster support from the fanbase too.

I need you guys to understand that I am not obligated to create this game for you in anyway as I am doing it FOR FREE. If you are complaining about how stuff takes forever to get done, well, that’s what happens when someone who has a life, is in school, works for free, and works alone works on a difficult project. Just be happy there is a beta to play sometimes. Of course, now there will not be any beta to play at all, because I’m finished with Penguin Generation. I’m sure I’ll still get questions about me turning on the server, though. 😐 Just so you know, we’ve had some great fans here—most of them are good online friends today. Most of our viewers have not been good fans or really fans at all, which greatly disappoints me after all the work that I’ve done.

In addition to all of the above, I didn’t like the theme of the game Penguin Generation, and therefore, I didn’t even really want to make it. I quit Club Penguin about two years ago; therefore, Penguin Generation would be pointless for me to make. I only continued due to pressure from “fans” and the fact that I wanted to advance my computer skills. That was my thought a while ago, but I just can’t take it at this point.


At this time, I’d like to reflect upon the many good times there have been at Penguin Generation. I remember that a few days after the blog was created, we had already connected with a few fans that we brought in from other sites and got some really cool room ideas finished. It was pretty basic, but for the programs we had at our disposal then, it wasn’t too bad. It was a fun day—getting to communicate with new fans and come up with neat ideas. I remember the first anniversary party which was amazing and full of so many good memories. Tons of fans showed up to celebrate our 1 year anniversary, and it was also the first time we did our Mod/fan awards, which worked out great that year.

I remember all of the Site Renovations when Mods go together and fixed up the site. We all had a blast making fun and creative touch-ups to the site. I sincerely thank all of you guys who liked to hang out on the forums, because that has been 100% pure epic. Our random, spontaneous forum parties have been really fun, and it’s been a really cool, unique opportunity to get to know some of you better. I remember having fun on the chat during chat parties, and even hanging out on Club Penguin with some of you guys. I have had a lot of fun at Penguin Generation outside of the high-stress, all-work aspect which grew and grew as time moved on, unfortunately. But in the beginning, it was a lot of fun, and our almost all fans were actually really cool back then.

Through Penguin Generation, I’ve made tons of good friends which has made the experience worthwhile. I have tons of regrets about Penguin Generation, almost to the point where I would regret making the game if it weren’t for all of the awesome friends that I’ve made. I stated earlier that our fanbase has been pretty poor, but that is the overall fanbase. There are still a bunch of guys out there who are awesome fans and friends, and it is because of them that I don’t regret making Penguin Generation. I have many unforgettable memories from Penguin Generation, and what makes them so unforgettable is the fact that I’ve shared them with such great friends.


Now I want to take the time to thank and acknowledge various people who’ve helped Penguin Generation or been meaningful to me in the online world over the past couple years.

Wiibob7975: I remember when you and your brother first came to PG. Ever since you came, you’ve been one of the best supporters Penguin Generation has ever had. Not only were you a great, loyal fan, but also a really good friend to me—despite our constantly differing opinions and different interests and personalities (though we do find lots of common ground, too). You’ve helped me out with a lot of things since I’ve met you and even helped mold me as a person (in some ways). I really appreciate your friendship and the support that you’ve shown to Penguin Generation over the years.

Chub 777: Man, you made the whole forum experience so much better! I remember our first random mini-parties on the free forum section and how much fun they were. You been a good friend to me and an amazing Penguin Generation supporter for a really long time. In fact, I’ve know you longer than most people on Penguin Generation. You ran the most active Penguin Generation news blog on the web, though I guess you don’t have to run it anymore. xD In all seriousness, I am so thankful that I’ve been able to hang out with you all these years. You’ve been one of my greatest online friends of all time; thanks for all you’ve done! 😉

Aggron: WordPress servers: “Your post is too long, please shorten it.” Ah, dang it! I gotta shorten Aggron’s acknowledgement AGAIN!? Poop. :mrgreen:

Well… I don’t know exactly how to write this or what words to use. No matter how many times I try to write this, it won’t come out right. You did everything you could do to help with Penguin Generation, which is impressive, considering you don’t even have Flash. You were my best online friend of all time… you were there during the hard times of my online career… and the good times. You were there all those awesome days on Xat. Heck, you were there when the Escalation map pack came out so we could play Call of the Dead. We share many common interests and similar personalities (to a certain degree). If we didn’t, Penguin Generation probably would never have gotten as far as it did.

I find it quite interesting that something as small as a simple idea for a better Club Penguin could form such a huge friendship. It’s hard to imagine where our friendship would be if Penguin Generation never started—would we even be friends at all? (Probably not, I’d have another online best friend named Lairon. Tee-hee!) You were practically the only reason I’d come online some days. Work on Penguin Generation? Nonsense! That’s boring. No, I’d come on to talk to you. I guess our friendship grew even stronger when I was at your house for the entire weekend and kept forcing your brother to get off the Xbox… and torment your dog with a tomato. I’m glad we’ve been friends for so long and hope we can continue to be friends for a lot longer.

Fire 104: Ah, my cheese-loving friend, this was the last project I got to work on with you. You were my second friend ever in my blogging career, and no doubt my oldest online friend to ever have anything to do with Penguin Generation. It was great working with you while you were around. I remember way, way back when we used to post all the time for each other—it was a lot of fun, in my mind. 😀 Having the honor of working on your blog was incredible! You were a great friend to me, and I appreciate all of the fun times we’ve spent together. Thanks!

Frosty1297: You were my first good female online friend. That makes the first out of two currently. 😛 Anyways, you’ve been so fun to chat with! I didn’t really talk to you much back during the time I ran my blog, but I got to know you a lot better since Penguin Generation started. You’ve given me lots of wise advice, and your happy and cheerful attitude (though I can sense a sinister, evil attitude beneath it all :o) plus your delightful humor which is strangely almost a mirror image of mine has made it enjoyable to hang out with you. Thanks for being a good friend to me. 🙂

Violin Playa: You’ve been an amazing friend to me as well. I remember how you came up with tons of great ideas in the first few days of PG. Sadly, you disappeared from PG, but you were still a good friend to me. 😀 You’ve always been helpful to me. The day I met you, you spent at least an hour helping me find the Penguin Band on Club Penguin. Not many people would do that for someone they just met a few minutes ago. I’ve gotten to know you better through Skype, and learned the most important thing about you that I could learn… that you’ve never seen snow! 😮  But seriously, thanks for all that you’ve done for me!

Tromino: =D You’ve been a lot of fun to hang out with. Whether it be on the forums or on Xat, we’ve had loads of fun together. Thank you for all your support with Penguin Generation—you tested all the betas and were even involved in the making of a video for Penguin Generation. We share a lot of common interests, so it’s just natural that we’d get along so well. You’ve been an awesome friend to me, thanks!

Here are some other people who have been helpful, supportive, and have shared their friendship over the years: Splasher99, Poison Dude, Darknerr, Wobbler35097, Gokhan137CP, Mew Man54, and many others.


I guess there’s not much else to say… well, there is, but I’m just running out of words because at this point I am at 2,709 words so my brain is getting tired. 😛 I wanted to show you this video before I close.

I guess… it’s time now. It’s time… to say goodbye to Penguin Generation. Updates on what will happen with the blog and forums will be posted on the Penguin Generation Twitter account. Thanks so much for everything guys! Goodbye!

🙂 Powerflare, signing out! 🙂

  1. Hi My names Buzz and I tried to be here most of the years………

  2. I totally understand where you’re coming from, sometimes being a game maker is a burden in my life. But it’s fun – for me.

  3. Thanks for all the fun years, PG Team! Hope to see you guys again soon! I will miss PG :(. But, it was fun. I still remember the Dojo sneak peek. I was like, “Whoa! A Pathway!” and I went on cp and I was trying to find it >_<. Anyways, I will still on your blog and support you as long as penguingeneration.com lives….


    – Sportace

  4. Don’t worry guys, PG is not over. The game is what’s over, we’re still deciding what this blog will mainly be about, but it’s going to be about many things.

    Powerflare: PG is over, but the blog and forums are going to still be used for something different. The name will likely change, too. What I’m trying to say is that the new blog and forums aren’t a continuation of PG, but something entirely new.

  5. Buzz, I know you in real life. I said people ONLINE that have been good friends and have been supportive.

  6. 😦 I never even got to play the game and now it’s shutting down now i got to go back to playing disneys stupid clubpenguin i wish disney never bought clubpenguin

  7. I NEVER GOT TO PLAY IT 😦 I alway thaught that one day ONE DAY i would play it I AM SO SAD!

  8. I Have an idea i will make my own game 🙂

  9. Do you have any idea the level of work it takes to create a game like this? It takes many, many hours of work each week, lots of money for the essential programs, and knowledge of several computer languages. Part of the reason I’m closing is because the work load became too difficult for me to deal with and live a normal life as a teenager.

  10. @Powerflare, I understand. You are just a teenager, and you still have your whole life ahead of you. But, I want to congratulate you on how amazing Penguin Generation was going to be. I hope that THIS will be your job once you get older. Please continue what you’re doing, please. We will all miss Penguin Generation, and even though if you did continue making a gaming website when you get older, even though we would all probably be too old for kids’ games like this, I know you will get tons of fans and be very successful. Thank you for creating this great memory. 🙂


  11. I fell bad for u power flare u have been working on the game and now u have to shut it down

  12. I… I… I don’t know what to say… It’s been such a long ride with tons of ups and down… And now the rollercoaster is over, never to be ridden again. (I bet you can understand this metaphor :P)

  13. i know you what you mean powerflare. Blogging club penguin was too much for me and thats why i quit and therefore i blogged about pandanda.

    Anyways my point is, this project, regardless it shut down, was the most impressive thing i have ever seen.

  14. goodbye penguingeneration

  15. Woah, I found this site just yesterday :O Because I remember 2009 the wordpress blog xD You guys were talking about making it. What Happen to all of the crew…. you’re the only one left from them? Well I wish I could have played penguin generation. But all of the comments i hear that it was Great ! I hope at sometime you might reopen this again. But for now Goodbye 🙂

  16. Thanks for that comment. And also please forgive the late reply. Anyway, that was the same reason I quit Club Penguin blogging months ago. But the only difference is, you used up ~$700 on Flash and the other things for PG.

    There was also the servers which took a toll on your computer. I would also like to say thank you to all of the PG staff especially Powerflare for the large amount of time, effort and money put into this great project.

    Being a fan for PG was great, especially on the forums. Blogging about PG was easy compared to CP blogging. Now that the plug has been pulled out, PG is (sadly) over and it will never come back again. It has been an awesome and wonderful ride for the past few months on PG and now it’s gone.

    Once again I would like to thank the PG staff for doing and excellent job on this amazing project. Only the future holds what will happen now…

    ~Chub 777

  17. I hate you… I wasted my time you spent money making this and I even missed school for almost a year for doing this what the hell is wrong with u. look at this site, atleast give it to someone to continue it.

  18. Hey, Jordan, why don’t you finally just shut up. Seriously, I’m getting tired of you constantly berating us. It’s my game and my website—it’s also my life—and I made the decision to close because I felt it was taking up too much time in my life. Let me ask you a question. When you make decisions in your life, do you have me in mind? Do you think “what will Powerflare think?” The same applies for me. Let me ask you another question. In that year of school that you missed to work on Penguin Generation, what did you accomplish…

  19. @Jordan502 Why would you miss school for this?

  20. And the blind man said, “I see.”

  21. I suggest you make your own game when you learn more. Perhaps colledge will teach you alot more about Flash.

    Good Luck on whatever your doing 😉

  22. Thanks! 😉 But I am done with Flash for good. I’m not gonna pursue any such thing in college, even though it would help me learn how to make a better game.

  23. BTW, You going to get the next zombie map pack, Ressurection?, ITS GONNA BE BEAST XD!

    Errm considering what you have done on your PG until this end, it really isnt that hard for what you accomplished. The SFS forums and Google are your friend when your a beginner. But colledge and your professor will be your mentor :p

  24. Dang it, why cant i end my comments >.<

    Im moved on with PI (I just left it there with lots of stuff done, but then i realized if i ever released it, I would have to worry about servers, hackers, more updates, rule breakers, pressure from fans, etc.)

    Im going to learn Java so i can mod Minecraft, I already made my first mob and i can say its DEFINETLY easier than flash xP MC forums has alot of helpful tutorials 🙂

  25. See, the thing is that for the next Beta release (the one that I never did release because I quit), things got the point where the SFS forums and random Google searches weren’t enough help. Hours troubleshooting issues was not something I wanted to do, so… that’s why all of this happened. It’s also why I don’t want to ever do Flash again.

  26. Meh, My friend RyanBoyling(youtube) is learning flash from SFS and Google. Check out his game, Quakebay. He apparently got his game to work JUST by using SFS and google. If you still feel curious, maybe you could ask him for a bit of help (Hes nothing like Jimmy, the selfish, greedy guy). But I don’t care otherwise :p.

  27. The next PG beta had a lot of stuff like that: catalogs, more advanced playercards ect. We were even considering adding minigames. It was other more specific stuff that wore me out. Specifically, glitches that no one has answers to.

    All that aside, thanks for the info, but I really am done with PG. It’s relieving, actually, to know I don’t ever have to touch Flash again.


  29. @powerflare ok u kno me in real life…. but what about aggron?

  30. ^ But I met him only a few months ago. Also, I only mentioned a small fraction of the people I’d like to thank.

  31. Almost forgot to make this comment powerflare, which this effort you put into pg, you could easily make a great kids online game when you are older.

    ~Darknerr aka Klove101

  32. Thanks. 🙂


  34. Hello, sir.

    It is interesting that you are happy that it closed. I am happy too! 🙂 However, I’m sure we have different reasons behind our happiness. In fact, part of the reason Penguin Generation closed is because of people like you! 😉 In FACT, part of the reason I’m happy that it closed is because now I can get away from people like you. 😀 First of all, the servers were up more often than you think, but you, sir, have bad timing or live in a timezone which is not suitable. Of course you probably wouldn’t know too much about this, but the process of private servers are different. They are far easier to make, but they are also illegal. I’ve never heard of a case where a CPPS has been given legal permission.

    In addition, private servers are a carbon copy of Club Penguin. There is no reason to play one unless, of course, you are too lazy to earn coins and buy the items yourself, or can’t accept the fact that there are people with rarer items than you. As far as the chat filters, that is nonsense. If you want to actually chat with people, Club Penguin is not the place to do it, CPPS or not. It’s obvious that you aren’t very knowledgeable in this area, so I’d like to inform you that Penguin Generation—though it looked similar to Club Penguin at Beta 2—if it was ever finished (though it couldn’t because of time issues and annoying people :wink:), would have been a totally different experience.

    With all that being said, go take your complaining to someone who cares. Good day, sir.

  35. To Powerflare: Uh Im Using a diffrent Program that Cost No Money.

  36. @powerflare Im pissed off at u guys for being such a jerk and a nerd so why dont u just shut up for once hey? who makes a post this big?

  37. @powerfare that year of school I missed, I made something big, really big that would finish the game make it work, It was ment to be a suprise, untill u fired me!

  38. Jordan, I’m not the one who is leaving nasty comments, so I’m not the one whose mouth needs to be shut. Just because I’m smart doesn’t mean I’m a nerd. xD A nerd is someone with glasses, braces, and enjoys school and studying (among other things). A nerd would be able to easily complete Penguin Generation (which I was unable to do).

    Also, whose the jerk? The one who reprimands the one who says stuff like “f*** you” or the one who says it? … That’s what I thought.

    Next, let’s get something straight. First of all, I didn’t fire you, Aggron fired you. Also, you broke the rules 3 times (after the first time, when you didn’t know the rules so we of course said it was okay).

    If you missed school for Penguin Generation, well, you need to work on setting your priorities straight. I’m sure that your “big surprise” would’ve really made everything work. However, we already made the game work and were making the beta.

    Stop lying, now. Seriously. It is, in fact, impossible to “finish the game” without lots of money and a team of people in real life. Anything used to get the game running you do not “make” besides the actual game file itself, which WE made.

    I made a post this big because this is the close of something that’s been going for 2 1/2 years. I didn’t write it all at one time, anyways. I also wrote this people because there are tons of people to thank for all their help through these past 2 1/2 years.

    My final notes for this comment are this: just go away and leave me alone. I don’t wanna waste my time with you.

  39. to bad, I knew my PG life was over so I just dont give a fuck, there I just said what u religius people are scared of saying and I hate you so deal with it, u fired me from something I really enjoyed and had fun and wanted to go further so ya I tried going but I just couldnt, I know im anoying but its not my fault im dumb there I said it im dumb and im not good at anything.

  40. I don’t know why you hate us (especially when I didn’t even fire you) for firing you when you were the reason you got fired.

    You aren’t dumb; that’s not why you were fired.

  41. Jordan. STOP. When I hired you for the second time, I specifically said, “This is your last chance.” You decided to insult, cuss, etc. at me (the only one who WANTED to hire you). Then, I fired you. I was tired of you being rude, etc. And who knows, I may have even given you another chance, but you blew it by stealing our emails. Now just shut up already and move on.


  42. To add to what Aggron said, I went through hell and back (so to speak) to get those emails back, I have to learn how to write in a code, and I did unsuccessfully a few times before I finally got it to work. “Do unto others as you wish others to do unto you” is not just a religious quote. It is widely used outside of the three Abrahamic religions. It is a fundamental rule for life. In the United States this has been used widely. It was one of the things that the country was founded on, and it has been applied appropriately. When people of different ethnic backgrounds in the U.S. were discriminated against, people peacefully protested, because if you were to do good to people, you would have to do good to everyone, because YOU WANT EVERONE to treat you well. People usually forget the part “as you wish others to do unto you.” This may sound very long and winded, but in the end, if you ever want anyone to respect you in life, you have to treat them with the same kindness that they treat you with. Even if things don’t go exactly how you want them to, sometimes you have to put on a happy face and just deal with it, because you want to be treated that way, you have to treat others that way. So if you want to be treated like a nothing, no body, mean, and generally rude person, go ahead and keep on doing what you are doing.

  43. And the funny thing is, he got mad at us when someone broke into his email. Now, we did not get into your email, but you got ANGRY at US because of it, and you even hacked our emails! Wth…? ._.

  44. Good man, Cya power and well done with all your work,

    Your old friend,


  45. ←↺→ [Enter a URL… ] [Search Google… ]

  46. I never said u hacked my email and u take things too
    Seriously dont be a wuss. How old r u? Anyhow I’ve been through this, Ju how did u get the emails back btw? I was going to give
    Them back I just was waiting for something idk what but something, but cmon I wanted to stay friends but I just get angry really easily and do something so they regret doing whateva they did.

  47. Jordan, let me ask you a question. How old are you? Seriously, kids get really angry over trivial things like a stupid online game called “Penguin Generation.” Hacking the e-mails as revenge is childish. The fact that you get angry easily isn’t an excuse, it just shows that you need to work on controlling and managing your anger. The person you should be angry at, if anyone, is yourself, since you broke the rules which Aggron explained to you multiple times.

    Penguin Generation

  50. ^ 50th comment!

  51. So your going to probably turn this into a forum about…. Pokemon, CP, or other things?

  52. lol nice job powerflare! I don’t get what ppl are arguing about since its too late and PG is already over.

  53. and i also kept my cool after i got fired though i dont remember when…but i didnt freak out haha

  54. @Sportace I’m not sure yet. I haven’t decided—I’ll have to see how my schedule is once I start school.

    @Darknerr No, I remember. You didn’t freak out.

  55. I’m not happy that you’re closing PG. It was fun. 😦

  56. Wow, it’s been a month since I released the final post… wow.

  57. Wateva

  58. and we are still commenting too!

  59. Wow, the website is amazing.

  60. Dear PG, I have followed you for over 2years now. I aswell make certain games, sometimes flash sometimes unity. I was wondering if you would release the flash project so others can continue it.


  61. No, I am not releasing the project. Furthermore, I couldn’t even if I wanted to since I deleted it.

  62. Ok anyway thx for good year 🙂

  63. Even in October people are still commenting! 😀 It’s good to know that some of my work was appreciated, even if it is only by a few people. You guys rock!

    Some thoughts now that Penguin Generation has been closed for two months…

    I do miss my friends I made from Penguin Generation a lot. School is been time-consuming this year; more-so than ever before, so I feel that making any other sort of blog would kinda be pointless and inactive. I do, by the way, intend to renew the domain and CSS for at least another year, just because…

    But seriously, I do miss you guys a lot. Most of you that I mentioned in this post that have been with me through the years I haven’t talked to in about 2 months (a.k.a. when PG closed)—even Aggron. I feel bad about it, but the decision to close had to be made. I wish blogging was like it was back in the day when I first made my Club Penguin blog on New Year’s Day, 2008 or even the blogs that came before mine. Things were simpler and more fun in those days. It’s kinda like how the days of CP back in 2006 and 2007 (and 2005… but it didn’t really grow until ’06) were more fun than the other years…

    I hope I can talk to all of you again sometime soon. If any of you want to contact me, here are some other methods (besides commenting on this post):
    Twitter: @Powerflare
    YouTube: NeoPowerflare
    Xbox LIVE: Powerflare
    Playstation Network: Powerflare (I usually don’t use PSN anymore; when I play PS3, it is usually only for singleplayer games and I don’t connect to PSN, so this isn’t really an effective way of communication)
    E-mail: powerflare@penguingeneration.com (those of you who know my real e-mail, use that, but sending an e-mail to this address will also send one to my real e-mail)

  64. Wow, I am glad PG is still popular! It’s been almost 2 months now and people are still visiting.. I really hope you continue this when you have the time to. 🙂

  65. 😦 Two months… Powerflare you should get Minecraft, it’s really fun and addicting and it could give us something to blog about. Single player and multiplayer is really awesome.

  66. What a coincidence…. the day I decided to close PG (which is what I consider the official closing date)—that date’s 3-month anniversary (I mark that as an important time) is CP’s 6-year anniversary.

  67. ^ PG’s 12-week anniversary actually… not exactly 3 months. Still… it’s an interesting coincidence.

  68. Kuige, Rawr, Party. Dead.

    What is that?

  70. its sad that such a good thing has to come to an end if you decide that this isnt thie end thouge let me know cuz i know alot of tech stuff that might help. RIP PG u will never be forgotten

  71. @Aggron: Yes. I also have Minecraft. I also recommend that you get it, Powerflare. We could set up a server…

  72. @echo off
    color 07
    echo Penguin Generation not found.
    chgcolor 70
    echoj “Press any key to exit.”

  73. Save that as “penguin-generation.bat”.

  74. FIRST NOVEMEBER COMMENT well anyway…..agg is right minecraft is beast

  75. @powerflare I hear ya’ power. I miss the old Cp! and blogging isnt fun anymore. No matter what its about. Minecraft is the new thing but…….Notch is ruining it according to my friend………Tht makes me think its Clubpenguin all over again!

  76. http://twitter.com/PenguinGen It’s self explanatory from there.

  77. @Chub: I have a Minecraft server set up. If you wanna join it currently I have it private with LogMeIn Hamachi, but if you get LogMeIn Hamachi I can give you the information for it.

  78. Ooh, a riddle…and one related to Pokemon!

  79. Just finished the riddle. The only clue I’m giving you is that it is great news (note to admins: delete this comment if it is too “revealing”).

  80. Notch was the one who came up with Minecraft..Nothing like Club Penguin, whose parent company, New Horizon Interactive, was bought out my Disney. Minecraft has been wholly owned by Notch and developed my Mojang AB since the beginning.

  81. Where do we give our answers?

  82. You don’t. When you figure it out, keep it to yourself. 😉

    Oh, and Chub, since you figured it out, we can talk about it in e-mail ect. E-mail me at powerflare@penguingeneration.com (though you probably have my personal e-mail, but I will get it either way).

  83. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

    P.S. Minecraft is beast with mods, otherwise its so boring >.<

    Anyone heard of Terraria? The newest update is going to be awesome 😀

  84. I know about Terraria because I have Super Mario Brothers X.

  85. I don’t know if you remember me, but it’s sad to see this website has stopped. But I’m so proud of all of you for actually getting it working, I thought it would be beyond any of you (Not to insult you, I mean like it would probably take like a group of experts a while to figure it out, and there was only one guy on this website). Well done!

  86. If I would have realized what this was a while ago I would have totally supported this. Ugh these memories are like flying through my head right now, and most of you don’t remember me probably but calvandrobbaroo.wordpress.com is the only thing I have from some of you.(aggron and frosty.)

  87. I never realized that people appreciated the project this much that long after the ending we STILL get comments on this post about it. 🙂 It makes me smile—it makes me smile that something so small, some cheaply-made game modeled after another game, could result in something so much bigger, a group of people who actually care. You guys made my day. 😀

  88. @Calv: OMG! WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?!?! e.o That’s awesome that you’re back. We gotta start talking again. I know what you mean, computer memories seem to always get frozen in my head e.o Frosty and I only really email at this point…

    @Powerflare: We need to start skyping again for the… um… good news (not trying to give away much info). I’m guessing you’ve been texting me… but as usual my phone has disappeared, and it’s the worst yet. 3 WEEKS so far. 😦 Anyway, meet me on Skype, I’ve been on a lot lately playing Minecraft. So just call me anytime.

  89. Lmao i’ve asking myself the same thing :p. And yeah computer memories are the ones that end up sticking with me the most haha.
    I posted on your site saying stuff but then I thought i’d might as well comment on here. I saw that you had an xbox live account :p my gamertag is rG BlaZe if you want to add me

  90. K I’ll add you.

  91. hey man. im sorry it had to come to this, i remember all the good times we had, even though i kind of quit about half way through…regardless, thank you guys (especially Aggron and Powerflare) for making this awesome memory. never will i forget PG or spending time on Adobe Photoshop making new ideas for islands haha. anyway, thank you for trying so hard to make this thing happen and lets stay in touch.

    ~Penguin32280607 (Poison Dude)

  92. Wow, I’m reading all my past comments and well… I really need a slap in the face o.O

  93. If anyone is reading these comments still, hi.

  94. …Why? =(

  95. This website turns me on.

  96. That’s interesting.

  97. You should look into developing an ipad app.

  98. Stopping in again about a half an hour before the New Year. Looking back at some good times here at PG. Miss you guys
