Donnie Santini: Space Explorer
|Donnie Santini: Space Explorer|
Donnie Santini: Space Explorer was a global habbo event back in 2006 / 2007
Users had to explore rooms in order to get clues for answers. The answers had to be filled in a form on the Donnie Santini: Space Explorers page on the homepage. Users got the change to win one of the 9 unique badges created for the space explorers campaign. Only around 50/55 people with the right answers got the change to win a badge. After the campaign was over the Black Monolith was released.
The following paragraphs are text taken directly from the Habbo articles concerning this event.
The last we heard from him, he was looking for aspiring movie makers in our Habbowood competition… then just when the winner was chosen, he disappeared never to be heard from again. Or so we thought.
Just this past week, all of us Habbo Staff were partying at Rooftop Rumble when I noticed something blinking in the sky. It got larger and larger… then suddenly I realized it was a Habbo! The Habbo flew into our atmosphere, burning and whatnot, when he (or she? Who knew, the Habbo was going too fast for recognition) dropped into the pool.
We all jumped in and rescued the poor Habbo and saw someone who looked remarkably familiar… it was Donnie Santini! The resilient fellow he was, he propped up and started toking from his bubble pipe again as he regaled us with a tale of his travels…
“So right, after that Habbowood thing, I decided to take a trip ‘round the galaxy, for no good reason at all. And you know what? I fell in love with it…
Until one day. One day, exploring around in my ship, Santini One, I hit a snag and one of the engines blew. I know, something failing on me, go figure, I am just the best space explorer ever, but bobba happens.
Anyway, I was drifting along, no one and nothing in sight for ages, just a bunch of specks of stars gleaming in the distance. Then, all of a sudden I began to hear a voice. And it was telling me things, entering my mind, as if it knew what I was thinking, opening every door in my brain until it stumbled upon the Habbo. It was a Black Monolith.
When it found that pocket of memory in my brain about Habbo, the voice stopped. Dead silence. After a minute of nothingness, it whispered something to me. But soon after this my oxygen ran out and I lost consciousness and when I woke, I was flying through the atmosphere, burning up and now I’m here.
I don’t know why, but I know I have to show you the planets of the galaxy. I just know that if you Habbos help me explore the universe, we’ll be able to figure out what this Black Monolith told me and wants from me. Until we find out, I’m going to live with this voice in my head, telling me what to do, with no control over what I do. Help me Habbos…”
After the tale, we dragged Donnie Santini to the best beds in the Hotel and laid him down to rest. I’m sure he’ll wake soon and show us where to go.
The other day I was out chilling in the Tranquility Garden, just relaxing and minding my own business, when out of the corner of my eye I saw THE Donnie Santini! He came walking toward me with a confident stride and a pipe full of bubbles and I could hardly contain my excitement…I was about to hear a firsthand and private account of his space travels!
When he finally approached me, he skipped right over the “hellos” and “nice to meet you's” and immediately began insulting my outfit…my pants were too blue, my shirt was too stripey. Oh no he didn’t!!! I was about to launch into a discussion of the Fashion Friendly Fighters and teach him thing or two about style, when he quickly started explaining himself. Turns out he was just trying to prepare me for my visit to Omni TV, the first stop on our planetary voyage!
He told me of Omni-TV’s inhabitants: fame-hungry, trend-obsessed and TV-addicted people who are always pitching the latest script and butting heads for VIP status. Everything on this planet revolves around media exposure, showing off and trend setting," he told me. “Kinda sounds like Hollywood…I can handle that, let’s go!” I shouted. Donnie’s face suddenly turned white as he warned me, “Proceed with caution. These fame-seekers are not friendly toward those who don’t fit the Omni TV mold. This is no Hollywood.” And then he went as quickly as he came.
Do you think you can handle the trendsetting terrors of Omni TV? Donnie begs you to try! He has reason to believe the first piece of the Black Monolith’s puzzling message is hidden somewhere among the camera and TV filled studios that make up the planetary terrain. Seek out that fist fragment of truth and participate in planetary competitions below, if you think you can handle them

Since I am still new to the Hotel, this whole space exploration adventure is a great way for me to explore the Hotel and is a great way for you to explore the digital expanse of the beyond! I wasn't sure what to expect when the legend, Donnie Santini stopped by my room. He launched into his crazy tales. I thought he was going to fall over or kick a hole in my wall with his animated stories. I don't know if I believe that he de-populated an ENTIRE PLANET with his Kick Warz skillz, or how he knitted his granny a sweater out of Wookie fur... Most Habbos I know are allergic to Wookie fur!
Then Santini told me of the next planet we are going to explore: Megamecha! Megamecha is a planet populated solely by huge and not-so-huge “mechas” (robots) that are obsessed their own mutual destruction. I believe the words Santini used were ‘hell-bent on their internecine contests’- ‘brother Santini... You thought Habbo Kick Warz were bad; Santini told me about a not-so-huge-mecha that was kicked out of his atmosphere! That mecha is doomed to circle in his planet’s orbit FOREVER! Despite their extreme internal strife, you have no reason to fear the inhabitants of Megamecha because all mechas follow Asimov's three laws. During this weeks comps, keep Asimov's laws in mind.
The Monolith’s words are still haunting Santini. He can’t sleep, he can’t eat, and he can’t sit still! Please do you best to help Santini sort this out. Remember, it is what all Habbo’s seek. There will be clues in your explorations of the Megamecha rooms and throughout the hotel this week. Don’t forget the bots, they are machines too. The competitions will be fierce this week, almost as fierce as the competitions on Megamecha!
Planet MegaMecha Competitions

Last week, as Mr. Santini was wandering through the outer edges of Universum when he stumbled through a strange portal that had mysteriously appeared in the galaxy's CPU.
The portal led to a strange, disconcerting planet where every inhabitant walked, talked, and looked the same.
At one point, Mr. Santini was greeted by 10 identical 'Habbos', who each introduced himself in the same monotone voice as Mr. Harry.
Mr. Santini soon learnt that they are all actually Artificial Intelligences, following a scary master plan: to merge all Habbo individualities into a single, all encompassing one. Worse, the mindset they have is pretty corporate.
Of course in the mad world of Habbo and its seemingly endless series of bugs, the clones' fight for total uniformity is completely... well... futile.
This is a trial about freedom, and individuality. Do you know who you are and what you want? Can you be creative and not conform? Are you a real Habbo or just a clone?
Prove you have what it takes to be different. Defeat the Habbo Clones!
Planet 01001001 Competition
The thing the clones hate the most is to see Habbos expressing their individuality. So that's exactly what we're going to do - celebrate who we are and our differences!
Create a guest room that is all about you. Love a particular movie? How about a room about the show? Love to eat? Celebrate with a gourmet kitchen. Really dig dancing to cool tunes? Design a club where you can shake that bootie with your pals!
Whatever the space, it should be all about who you are. So make sure you tell us what that space says about you in less than 200 words.
The 5 Habbos whose spaces best express their individuality (and give the clones a splitting headache) will win:
- A Holoboy or Hologirl (winner chooses 1)
- A 01001001 Badge
- 1 Month HC
- 5 Habbo Points
