25th of April is also known as, yes, The World Penguin Day! So, remember to something penguin-like, whether it's playing some TAGAP 2, learning penguin facts or dressing up as one and waddling the streets!
Also, there no better day to help out our flightless friends. For this very occasion Greenpeace has put up a good article about what we can do – and an official petition aiming to improve protection of Antarctic marine life, including penguins. The goal of the petition is to get CCAMLR to establish a large-scale network of marine protected areas and no-take marine reserves to protect Antarctic's key ocean habitats... while we still can.
And don't forget; Have a wonderfully waddling World Penguin Day!
March 19th, 2013 Weekly Penguin returns
Like you've likely noticed, Weekly Penguin was nowhere to be seen last week, for which I am very sorry. The reason for this was very simple; My appendix. Yep, I spent the weekend-before-last in a hospital and got home on the following Tuesday. I was, obviously, so exhausted from it all I didn't have it in me to create the weekly penguin greatness. My official apology for that, dear penguin friends.
This is the biggest downside of being both the publicist and the developer; When I go down for count, so does almost everything TAGAP related on both website and game creation front. Don't worry, I'm picking myself up step-by-step post-surgery.
Since in the original post I wished for BBC to release the series on DVD as soon as possible, I'm glad to inform you folks that the box set is on the way, aiming for April 8th release in the UK. Hurray!
As always, when penguin things happen, we want to report it!
Produced by John Powder Productions, BBC's brand new series Penguins: Spy in the Huddle spends nearly a year in the close company of penguins, deploying 50 spycams to capture as never before the true character of these birds. This is achieved via animatronic robot penguin cameras designed to silently infiltrate the colonies to record the penguins' behaviour.
And as if penguin spy-craft via infiltrator robots wasn't awesome enough, the series is narrated by the one and only David Tennant. This sounds so brilliant I honestly don't know how we, as human race, can top it.
The first episode of the show airs on BBC1 this week and I sincerely hope the series will arrive on DVD/BluRay in not-too-distant future.
