Planning and Release
The Habbox Wiki project begun in early October 2011 and was worked on by the Habbox Content Design Department. On the 13th of January, the Habbox "general public" became aware of a new top-secret project: code-named: HxW. Soon after the rumor-mill went into overdrive and everyone was trying to guess what this new addition to Habbox was.
