Club Penguin Online, for instance, served as a nostalgic retreat for players who were bored with lockdown measures and looking for a familiar social ‘convention’. Though sadly, it has since been dealt with a copyright strike amidst certain ‘issues with the game’ and has since rendered defunct.
Similarly, Habbo Hotel has also seen a spike in players since the emergence of the virus, with their motley bunch of avatars proving a heartwarming sight to returning ‘Habbos’.
Truly, it’s a field of nostalgia.
Encircled by a terrifying threat.
Neopets Just Revamped Their Website That Can be Used on Mobile Phone
And it seems that old fan favourite Neopets wants in too.
Though one would argue that their entrance is tad bit late.
Just yesterday (7 June 2020), Neopets announced on their Facebook page that they will be releasing a mobile site version of the game, and responses have been nothing short of anticipatory.
“Try out Neopets on your phone!” the Facebook page wrote. “With our open beta you can explore our new Neopets mobile-friendly site redesign🎊”
However, they clarified that the conversion is not yet finished, and that more content will be added in due time.
“Please keep in mind that not everything has been converted over yet and more content will be added in time, but for now we hope you enjoy playing Neopets on the go!”

Netizens Are Hyped
Neopets was a real fan favourite back in the day, and it seems that nostalgia overload is strong with the new mobile site version.
Apart from garnering 1.1K shares and 2.1K likes & reactions in the space of just one day, the announcement has also drawn the attention of many starry-eyed Netizens.
Though the comments section was admittedly also filled with either requests for a mobile app version…

Or ‘administrative issues’:
The fact that Neopets took the effort to reply to these queries, however, does prove a heartening notion.
Honestly speaking, a mobile app version would undeniably be sick, considering its convenience and platform-exclusive content. But a mobile site version does have its pros too: you’ll be able to play it on both desktop and on your phone, with one singular account.
So it’s really a matter of perspective, of how you perceive it.
Nonetheless, two things are for sure though;
First, Covid-19 does seem to share a really strong affinity with the term ‘nostalgia’…
And secondly, mobile devices might yet become the place to go for future generations of gamers, young and old.
You can access the game here.
