Ep. 97: Club Penguin

Chris Gliddon, archivist and producer at RocketSnail Games, takes a look back at the inception and evolution of Club Penguin, an MMO virtual world filled with games and activities from 2005. In this episode: Chris and Kelsey can barely contain their excitement, no one wants war – everybody just wants to chat and walk around, preserving a living game: it’s clean (but it’s a mess), business cases for archiving, and if you don’t have Leeroy Jenkins you don’t have World of Warcraft.
