TAGAP 3 v2.8 – and now on Itch.io!

Finally here, TAGAP 3 v2.8 brings important stability improvements – hammering out a nasty elusive crash bug and in general featuring extra optimisations. So if you've featured a crash while playing the previous release in particular, this should fix your problems.

Huge thank-you to everyone who helped me nail this bugger down. Especially with my limited hardware access – I literary have only two computers I can test these things on, meaning sometimes I simply can't replicate issues that materialise on specific Windows versions.

Head to TAGAP 3 Downloads and get the update – as usual, available as a full game download or as a smaller patch.

Or...

Penguin DT is now a developer on Itch.io – and the latest version of TAGAP 3 is now available through the platform.

And no, TAGAP 3 isn't going commercial – it is still freeware on Itch.io as well.

Why Itch? It's a lovely ecosystem for all kinds of indie projects, from the heavy duty commercial ones all the way to bizarre freeware doodles. TAGAP lies somewhere in the between, so it fits right in – and the option to keep things freeware ensures the tax man can't leech off of Pablo. Everybody wins.

Celebrating World Penguin Day with new TAGAP 4 art!

There are only a handful of days I choose to celebrate myself and today is one of those days; April 25th, the World Penguin Day! And this year I'm doing it by unleashing more TAGAP 4 artwork, this time featuring Pablo investigating the clone labs.

TAGAP 4: Pablo Investigates Clone Lab

Done in the same style as the previously featured 'recap' paintings illustrating the previous games, this one actually covers a scene from TAGAP 4.

This digital painting isn't a piece of promo art, though I admit it does work as one splendidly. It isn't concept art either, but something created for a specific section of the TAGAP 4 extras. However, as these extras are one of the rewards for completing the game, I won't spoil them, at least not today.

Have a fun World Penguin Day, everybody – and remember to think of penguins at least once today.

The Original Dr. Glowenko and his army

Dr. Glowenko and his army

For the second time, the Weekly Penguin focuses on rewinding the time for another snippet from the 'previously on TAGAP' segment of TAGAP 4! This time the spotlight goes to the Dr. Glowenko of the original timeline with his fearsome army.

As before check out the Weekly Penguin entry for the more details and the wallpaper downloads.

Previously on TAGAP... TAGAP 4 style

Pablo's escape

Instead of letting the reality drag you down, how about some escapism in form of a TAGAP 4 reveal?

For today, our Weekly Penguin has been taken over by none other than TAGAP 4 and it's recap sequence. For full rundown of how it'll work this time around, as well as wallpaper the downloads, check out the write up on the entry.

I'm also delighted to announce that – if the world is still here in a month or so – the recap sequence will be again voiced by Neil Gardner of Ladbroke Audio!

In the meantime, stay safe everyone.

Penguin DT's Games of the Year 2021 showcase

GOTY 2021

Another year behind us, another excuse to rave about some good games we've played. As I keep saying, you can't make a good game if you don't play games. Also, obviously the games we play will influence the games we make, regardless of our intentions. This in mind, here's our annual showcase of the best games of 2021!

Penguin Awareness Day... with a reveal!

Fiordland and African penguins!

Are you aware that there are these funky birds known as penguins? Well, just in case you weren't, there's whole day dedicated to making sure the whole world knows about them. Yes, Penguin Awareness Day is here and as usual, we have to celebrate!

However, this time is special, something I've been wanting to do for so long but didn't find the time to do it. But I decided to cheat; I made the project part of TAGAP 4 so that I would have to make time for it!

So, without further ado – here are TAGAP 4's secret collectibles, featuring the Penguin Species of the World in TAGAPified form!

The two examples here are the elusive Fiordland Penguin of New Zealand and the African Penguin, both sadly endangered. If you want to aid in the research and conservation efforts of the two, check out Tawaki Project and SANCCOB, respectively.

And when I said penguins of the world, I meant it, I went all out with this. There are total of 19 collectibles for you to find in TAGAP 4, each featuring their own illustration, information and trivia.

If you like what you're seeing, time to get secret hunting when TAGAP 4 arrives later in 2022.
