|The logo for the Nicktropolis MMORPG.|
Nicktropolis is an MMORPG made for Nickelodeon's website in January 30, 2007. It was created to have a world for kids with safe chat features. The game allowed players to create and customize your character and decorate your room.
In 2010, it was completely re-branded to The Club, which used a few different assets, but the idea was the same. In 2013, The Club was closed with a few assets remaining. And in 2016, all remaining assets carried over were closed when Nickelodeon removed the option to join as a user on the website.
