What Is Club Penguin?
Club Penguin is a massively multiplayer online game (MMO) involving a virtual universe featuring a range of online games and activities, created by New Horizon Interactive (now referred to as Disney Canada Inc.). Players use animation penguin- play and avatars in a winter-set virtual universe. After beta-testing, Club Penguin has since expanded into a big online community –growing to the extent that by late 2007, it was promised that Club Penguin had over 30 million user accounts and was made open to everyone on October 24, 2005. As of July 2013, Club Penguin has over 200 million registered user accounts.
While free memberships are available, revenue is predominantly raised through paid memberships which enable players to access a range of further characteristics, such as the power to purchase virtual clothes, furniture, and in-game pets called “puffles” for their penguins through the use of in-game currency. The success of Club Penguin led to New Horizon being purchased by The Walt Disney Company in August 2007 with an additional 350 million dollars, for the sum of 350 million dollars should particular targets be met by 2009.
The game is specifically designed for children aged 6 to 14, yet, users of any age are allowed to play with Club Penguin. So an important focus of the developers has been on child safety, having several characteristics introduced to the sport to ease this — including offering an “Ultimate Safe Chat” mode, whereby users pick their comments from a menu; filtering that prevents swearing and the disclosure of private information; and moderators who patrol the game. The game was criticized for teaching consumerism and enabling players to “cheat”.
Club Penguin was nearly totally determined by membership fees to generate a revenue flow prior to being purchased by Disney. Nonetheless, the great majority of users (90% according to The Washington Post) chose to not pay, instead taking great advantage of the free play on offer. People who decide to pay do so because full (paid) membership is required to get all of the services, like the ability to purchase virtual clothing for the penguins and buy decorations for igloos; and because peer pressure has created a “caste system” splitting paid from unpaid members. Marketing, both in-game and on-site, is not incorporated into the machine, even though some opponents have chosen to apply it: for Neopets, which incorporates product placements, and example Whyville, which uses corporate sponsorship.
An alternate revenue stream has come via the creation of an internet goods shop, which opened in August 2006 on the Club Penguin web site, selling stuffed Puffles and Tshirts. Gift cards key chains, and more tops were added on November 7, 2006.
As with one of its own major competitors, Webkinz, Club Penguin has traditionally relied almost entirely on word-of-mouth advertising to increase the membership.
