Club Penguin Island (formerly referred to as Project: Super Secret until November 2016) is a mobile-based, massively multiplayer online role-playing game which will arrive worldwide in early 2017. It is currently available in the Australia, New Zealand and Canada App Store and Google Play store.
Pre-beta ("Project: Super Secret")
- Main article: Club Penguin Island/Pre-beta
Club Penguin Island was first mentioned in 2014 under the codename Project: Super Secret by Spike Hike and described as the "next big thing for CP and beyond". Many sneak peak videos and pictures were released pertaining to the project, beginning in June 2015.
On November 17, 2016, Project: Super Secret was officially revealed by Megg on the What's New Blog and the official website for Club Penguin Island was released. Here, players can pre-register their usernames for when the new game releases.
According to issue #564 of the Club Penguin Times, the pre-registration period will end on February 15, 2017.
Starting on November 18, 2016, selected players received invitations for the closed beta via email, which was only available to be played on iOS devices. On December 6, 2016, the beta test period has come to an end, and all the players who were part of it will be able to keep their progress in the final game.
Release in Australia and New Zealand
The game was later released in Australia and New Zealand on December 15, 2016.
Release in Canada
Mascots offer the player quests to complete, who reward them with coins, XP, and sometimes items upon completion. Currently Aunt Arctic offers 5 adventures and Rockhopper offers 10. A membership is required for all adventures except Aunt Arctic's first, "Ep. 1 - Leaky Landing", which is the introduction to the game. A certain rank is also required for each mascot's adventures: see Aunt Arctic's adventures here and Rockhopper's here. All adventures, except for "Ep. 1 - Leaky Landing", can be replayed after originally completed, but no reward will be given.
- Main article: Daily Challenges
Daily Challenges are tasks available every 24 hours (refreshing at midnight in PST) that the player can complete to earn coins and XP. There are always four different challenges available each day. There are two types of challenges: 'solo', which can be completed by one player alone, and 'community', which requires actions from other players as well. All four challenges are always available to be completed by members, however, the amount available to non-members varies each day, but there will always be at least one available.

Actions and communication
- Main article: Quick Chat
Quick Chat is a feature that allows players to quickly communicate through using pre-defined phrases, as well as emojis. There are two different kinds of pre-defined phrases. The first kind are always available to use everywhere in the game, and are also accompanied by an animation that the player's penguin performs while the phrase is being said. The second kind are unique messages that are relative to the surroundings of the player's current location, however, these do not produce an animation.
- Main article: Emojis
Emojis are faces and symbols that can be used to communicate with other players as well as help complete adventures and daily challenges. Emojis are divided into several sets, with each set requiring the player to unlock them before they can be used. Emojis can be accessed from either the Quick Chat menu or regular chat. The player may also use multiple emojis at a time per chat bubble, unlike in Club Penguin.
Players can send other players friend requests to add each other to their friends list. To confirm a friend request, the invited player must select the orange check mark box next to the requesting player's username. A friend request can be sent by selecting the 'add friend' button on another player's player card. Besides tapping on a player's penguin in-game to pull up their player card in order to send a friend request, there is a search bar in the friends list that allows you to search for any player by their username.
Loading screen messages
While the game is loading, there is a screen that shows a tour guide emoji and above it, one of the following messages. Messages appear for several seconds before changing to a different one, and which message appears is completely random.
|List of messages|
- Items, coins and puffles are not transferable from the desktop version. Therefore, players will be able to use emojis, get new clothes and collect secret items in the new game.
- Five servers (worlds) can be accessed in the game, which are: Avalanche, Blizzard, Coconut, Iceberg, and Snowball.
- In the game files, it reads "Club Penguin Remix".
- To raise awareness for the app, a party was hosted on Club Penguin, called the Club Penguin Island Party.
