On Wednesday, March 11, Habbo finally released the new website layout which has been in beta for months! Along with the new navigator and categories, this release adds a clean cap to our newly introduced features.
First and foremost, the most apparent feature that you will notice upon navigating to Habbo.com is obviously the new design. Sulake went ‘all-out’ with its new modern theme and easy-to-navigate buttons. Such buttons are designed to generalize your exploration throughout the site, making it simpler to find what you need. Home, Community, HabboMall, and Playing Habbo are the new categories.
“Home” is the absolute first page you will come to as you search for Habbo.com. Sulake gets my stamp of approval because they have done a fabulous job in making sure you stay up-to-date with recent changes, news, and leisure activities that are happening within the hotel.
Habbo decided to put two sub categories and headers within this section. “Creations” allows you to “explore [the] creations” of fellow players and get to know your hotel just a wee bit more than you used to, meeting new people along the way. “Fansites” allows you to explore the official Habbo fan-bases. You may have found us through this page.
You may not have known that along with this update, Habbo has introduced a section called “HabboMall”, and quite frankly, all it is is a new name for the online store. Want to buy Habbo Club, Builder’s Club, or Diamonds? This is the place to be.
“Playing Habbo”: Your safety and tip center. I found this section to be quite fantastic. They did a great job in labeling certain tips to target specific audiences, like your parents, or you.
You’ve probably noticed this cool feature already! Sulake went ahead and integrated the client into the main tab. This means that you do not need a popup to be able to play Habbo.
I am quite sad that Habbo decided to give way with the old design. In my opinion, it looked (and was organized) better than the current one. Yes – with all of the positive remarks I have given, it surprisingly could have been greater. The site lacks words, as it is filled with mostly blank space and pictures. I don’t know where they will take it, but it just didn’t fit the bill for me.

Shannon has been doing a load of early Spring cleaning at HxL, chopping and changing some of the ways the department runs to make it even more fun in the community. Really exciting and invigorating to see her passion and planning mapped out!
