TAGAP 10th Anniversary Extravaganza!
Exactly 10 years ago, the original TAGAP: The Apocalyptic Game About Penguins was unleashed upon the unsuspecting world. Though we can't celebrate the occasion by releasing the much-anticipated TAGAP 3 – it needs a bit more time in the cooker – how about the next best thing?
You got that right:
TAGAP 3 arrives November 14th, 2017!
And yes, the song heard in the trailer above is TAGAP 3 Theme Song!
And finally, now that we have had the entire TAGAP3 rogues gallery introduced, meet the whole gang together, in screenshot taken straight from the opening cinematic:
Thank you all for supporting Pablo's world conquest over all these years – it means a lot to us!
Have a fun TAGAP 10th Anniversary!

Evolution of the Antarctica scene
We have a new blog post, showcasing the evolution of both the TAGAP Engine and our skills in utilizing it – by using the Antarctic location seen in all three games. Yes – that means new TAGAP3 screenshots!
Check out the blog post for more screenshots and the full comparisons!

Collection of the other apocalyptic penguins saga
A bit of almost-related non-TAGAP penguin news. I say almost related since Penguins vs Possums is one of our favourite things – as proven by the amount of Weekly Penguins we've featured of them over the years, from the comics themselves to collectible figurines. Though the series has ended, Fanbase Press still have one more big release to go; The trade paperback Volume 2, collecting the latter half of the series into one tome. The tome will be out on June 19th.
It wasn't until the creators Sebastian Kadlecik and John Bring were running a Kickstarter for the first trade paperback that I discovered the series, so I'm glad we're getting another to wrap things up proper. If you're up for some non-TAGAP apocalyptic penguin mayhem, do consider checking them out.

TAGAP 3 playable from start to finish
After six years of hard work, the magnum opus TAGAP3 is finally playable from start to finish... minus opening and closing cut-scenes, that is. For more detailed information on how and why this hasn't happened until now, check out our brand new blog update, but suffice to say; This is an epic mile-stone.
This doesn't mean that the work is over – far from it! There's still tons of work to do and while we don't have an exact release date for you great folks just yet, the window of 2017 doesn't seem like a stretch now!

500th Weekly Penguin – with the Funky Warden!
Weekly Penguin is our regular feature that has been running since 2007 – and that means we've now reached the epic milestone of 500 featured penguins! Seriously, 500! That surely needs to be celebrated, so how about we do that with a new TAGAP 3 villain reveal?
So; Meet The Funky Warden!
In addition to The Funky Warden's wallpaper début, we've have a new Making of TAGAP 3 blog post for a proper introduction.
And remember, every week we introduce another new penguin item from our Head Penguin's seemingly never-ending collections. Just click that round penguin icon at the top-right corner of the website to see the latest featured penguin item!
A toast to 500 weekly penguins!

Penguin Awareness Day 2017; New screenshot!
It's Penguin Awareness Day, the other one of the two days created to celebrate the greatest critters in the world! While for us at Penguin DT EVERY day is a 'penguin awareness day', this is the perfect excuse for everyone to explore penguin knowledge, visit penguins at your local zoo or perhaps participate in a penguin charity – like WWF and SANCCOB.
And what would such an occasion be without new TAGAP3 media! This time as was so busy crafting the ultimate boss encounter of TAGAP3 to create another character wallpaper, but I'm sure new TAGAP3 screenshot will do the trick;
Fear not, though; While we still haven't pinned down an actual release date, TAGAP3 is shaping up nicely. This means the remaining principal characters will be introduced soon enough! But meanwhile...
Have a fun Penguin Awareness Day!
