MeepCity is a social hangout/role-play game created by alexnewtron. It is styled after casual children's MMOs and shows off features inspired by Disney's Toontown Online and Club Penguin, as well as many references to them. Alexnewtron has played these games a lot in his youth, and it is likely that they hold a special place in his heart which then became an inspiration for MeepCity.

Gameplay

The main purpose of the game is being a social or roleplay hangout. This means buying items or playing games is completely optional.

MeepCity Coins (Dontaskwhy)

Meepcity Coins

There is a currency called coins. Coins are used to customize your house (such as colors, structure, and furniture), buy and customize your pet Meep, or buying fishing rods. It is very similar to Club Penguin.

Ways to obtain coins:

  • Sell fish, which is obtained by fishing and get meep coins from playing the game.
  • Play games, such as the minigame in the Pizza Shack (currently closed), Star Ball or MeepCity Racing.
  • Sell your flowers.
  • Stay in the game for a period of time, and make a home with furniture and adventure the game.

Fishing

MeepCity - Fishing Tutorial GUI

The tutorial GUI that pops up on the left side of your screen when you first go onto a dock.

Fishing is a way to get coins. There are fishing areas on The Playground or The Neighborhood. Fishing areas have a source of water and multiple piers.

To fish, you must walk onto an unoccupied fishing pier. After going onto the pier, you are equipped with a fishing rod. There are "dark spots" on the lake, meaning there is fish in that area. You must cast your line onto the dark spot, or have the dark spot come to your cast line, to obtain a fish. To do that, you must aim at the dark spot and charge up power. The more power you have, the farther your line will be thrown.

When you cast your line onto a dark spot or when a dark spot heads towards your cast line, you will obtain a fish. Some fish are more valuable than others and will sell for more coins. You can only have a limited amount of fish on you (20 fish maximum) before your inventory, which is a bucket, is full. To sell your fish, you must go to the Pet Shop, go up to the counter, select the "Sell Fish" button, and select your fish you want to sell. Selling fish frees up space, meaning you can fish again until your bucket is full.

The Playground

The Playground is the area you first spawn in when you join a server. In addition, The Playground is the main hub to go to different locations in MeepCity (i.e. The Neighborhood, The Plaza, and Town). The Playground has two fishing areas, two morphs (Teen and Kid), Parties portal, Pet Shop, Furniture store, Toys Stand, Home Improvement store, and several benches to sit on.

Pet Shop

MeepCity Pet Shop Interior

The interior of the Pet Shop.

The Pet Shop is where you adopt Meeps, buy Meep-related items, and sell your fish (obtained by fishing).

Meeps are sold for 100 Coins and you can only buy one Meep. When choosing a Meep, you can choose what will be the Meep's name and which color you want your Meep to be. The Meeps are inspired by Puffles from Club Penguin, mainly due to their shape and eyes. It is also said the inside is based on Club Penguin's Pet Shop's interior, for example, the rug.

Criticism

MeepCity's Community Commentary

Two users complaining about MeepCity on the Plus Gamepass Commentary. Names censored for security reasons

MeepCity's Community Commentary-2.

People complaining about the morph update. Names censored for security reasons

Despite the game's friendly nature, popularity amongst many players, and the creator working at Roblox, the majority of players outside its community dislike it.

One of their main reasons is that the game is often infested with online daters, especially in "Parties", a game mechanic where you make ongoing parties at your house (for PLUS members only). Usually, the people creating the parties use it for inappropriate use, such as sexual interactions, which is against the rules of Roblox. Online Daters would often name their parties "Find a Date"

or "Find Bae and have fun". Because of this, you can no longer give your party a name, or add beds to your party.

Alexnewtron has also received criticism relation to these events, as he has done not much to stop the online dating issue. His additions of the pillar and option for party owners to kick users as both have befefited online daters, as users now use pillars to recreate pole dancing and the kick option often being used to remove anti online daters (players who are against online dating).

MeepCity also received some backlash after the update where a player can turn into a teen or kid. Because of the update, people have compared to and labeled the game as games lots of online daters use such as "Adopt and Raise a Kid."

MeepCity has also been criticized for its similarities to the now shut-down Disney games Toontown Online and Club Penguin. The fishing minigame and the tunnel animation have often been said to be "ripped straight from Toontown", and Meeps are nearly identical to Puffles from Club Penguin, the face texture being illegally copied from a Disney asset, which eventually made its way into official Roblox merchandise. Disney no longer enforces Toontown or Club Penguin copyright due to the site being shut down, however, they would legally be able to sue Roblox for copyright infringement due to MeepCity's profit off of stolen assets. MeepCity's recent updates (as of January 28, 2017) have attracted more online daters[citation needed]. This caused some of MeepCity's veterans to lose interest and stop playing the game.

PeopleODing and captured in news

An example of a news article using Meep City.

It is also said that MeepCity is the reason why some news reports are calling Roblox "the center for child predators", as many news articles feature pictures and stories from MeepCity.
