How to Download Club Penguin Island (PC)

This guide is written for the Windows PC Download of Club Penguin Island. 

Need the Mac guide? Check out this other article of mine.

Hello Penguins,

Due to the release of Club Penguin Island for Computers, I've decided to write some new guides, starting with THIS one, how to download Club Penguin Island for Windows PC. I will also be doing additional download guides for other platforms in the coming weeks.

First off, visit Club Penguin Island's Download Page and press Download & Play from the centre bottom of the page.

** Alternatively, you can select the Windows download option from the centre right, further down the page. 

From there, a pop up from the bottom of the screen will ask you what you want to do with the file. Press Save or Save As ( ^ > Save As ) if you want to check the location of the save, like I have done so.

Feel free to create a new folder to save the new file, and when happy with your decision, press Save.

After saving, the 428 MB file will download onto your computer. This may take a while. In the meantime, why not complete some homework offline, or make a cup of tea?

** The download, depending on location and WiFi speed, may slow down during times of heavy activity.

Oh look! The file has saved. Press Run.

From there, a familiar looking icon should appear on the task-bar and flash a yellow-orange colour, depending on your appearance settings. Tap it!

We're getting closer to playing the game on a PC! Select the language of use through the tap of a drop down menu (V) and press OK.

Following that, the Install Wizard will be prepared, as per the next pop up that appears on screen. Watch that green bar go!!!

The Club Penguin Island Game Installation screen should then appear in view. Click Next >.

The next view brings up the Terms of Use. Try to read them, and, if you accept, select the top radio bullet (I accept the terms of the licence agreement) and click Next >. If not, press  < Back.

Choose the installation path. If you are happy with what is brought up, press Next >. If not, press Change, choose your preferred file path and press Save as shown earlier.

What game features do you want?

Keep the top check box ticked if you wish the game to be playable on your PC. If you want or don't want the Start Menu and Desktop Icons for the Club Penguin Island App, tick or untick the Install Start Menu Shortcuts check box and Install Desktop Shortcuts check box respectively.

Press Next > after making those decisions.

Are you happy with the settings you have choosen? If so, press Next >. If not, press < Back and review.

The game files will then be installed. Go green bar!!!


** You may be see a pop up about Microsoft Visual C + + at this point. Don't stress!

The final pop up! Installation has complete. Tick or untick Launch game now! if you wish or don't wish to play the game after the installation screen disappears, and press Finish. From there, the game should load- If you had selected for this to happen!

... From there, the interface should look VERY familiar... That's if you've played the game before, of course!

Ta-da! Like on mobile, log on to Club Penguin Island using your Penguin Name and Password. Click SIGN IN, and you're good to go! 

What a view! I cannot believe that, once again like six months ago, penguins can unite together from different platforms, even better than before, to host parties, meet friends and more. What a view!

What are your thoughts on this guide? I truly hoped you found it helpful- I had heard of some penguins having difficulties downloading, and hoped to help them out by doing this. Let me know in the comments below.

Until next time, waddle on!
