Classic Habbo is a remake of Habbo Hotel from when it was like in 2009, which at the time of writing was a decade ago. It is a remake down the website, the dual beta/shockwave client, the furniture and the collectable system. Here, you can explore what it was like to feed the nostalgia that you had from playing Habbo as a kid. Almost every feature of 2009 Habbo is pack (excluding as of right now, SnowStorm, Poker, and some other small things).

The development of Classic Habbo started in early January 2018 (which as the time of writing is almost 2 years ago), it was the Kepler emulator which was designed to power Habbo v14/2007 and then in October 2018 a fork of Kepler was made to emulate Habbo Hotel 2009/version 31. Since then, many features have been implemented through hours upon hours of research to get official Habbo behaviour (in most things).

As of this post, 6200+ users have registered since October 2018, when it first opened during its alpha phase.

Server Location

Buffalo, New York.

Language

The hotel is international and any language is allowed, but all official news by staff and all communication by staff and the website itself is in English.

Will probably get more staff in future but as of right now I am not hiring.

Probably the best old school retro I've ever seen. The downloadable client performs exactly like the web client and that's something I didn't expect to see anymore.

Y'all always talk about the old habbo times. Now is your chance to join a perfectly coded hotel, that's not some holograph edit. :cool:

Don't often get to say this anymore, but this is genuinely amazing. The sheer level of detail is amazing, it's exactly how I remember it - both web & client.

Just been on for about 2 hours - I don't even spend more than 2 hours on Boon in a week these days. It was very enjoyable, played both Shockwave & Flash, played a couple of games of Battle Ball and then visited the Lido, super fun!

Think while I was on you reached a peak of 47 users, so it was fun to experience the past with a bunch of users also mad excited. Kudos to you Alex, it's a work of art!

This is great! I got on and it brought me back to the best days of Habbo. I have one question though, is the Flash client & Shockwave client the same community? Or is it seperate?

For example, if I get on the BETA client will I still see the users that are using the Shockwave client? @Quackster

Thank you so much, I can't tell you how many hours of old YouTube videos, Habborator and Habboxwiki articles I've browsed through to get it accurate. :)

I'd say it's my magnum opus in regards to Habbo projects (as of right now).

Shit, I made a change just now. I implemented the FindRetro's API in Java myself. I don't know how I can test any fixes myself if I've already voted.

It should be fixed now (I think).

I've deleted the vote made from your IP, so you should be able to test it.

Honestly, you really outdid yourself.
Looks like you went through HoloCMS and upgraded everything, didn't miss a bit a detail.

Thanks @griimnak!

There's a few things that I still need to do for the CMS though, tag matching and staff pick rooms (on /me) aren't done yet. :p

Loving every bit of it. Haven’t been on retros in such a long time, but I couldn’t resist hopping on this. Love that both shockwave and flash clients are connected as well. Props to you.

Ive never used wine before, will try to find a tutorial on how to use it when Im on my lap top though!

First online game I've actually been excited for in a long time.

Havent really played Habbo much since these versions, was gutted when they changed the whole style.

Theres so many opportunities for a great fun economy with this version.

- prizes for battle ball and wobble squabble high scores
- trax contests
- proper kick wars?????
- custom event achievements and badges?? (Mazes, etc)


Well done!
