Epic fan art is epic – 'First TAGAP' by Wicked Red Panda
Ready for some epic TAGAP fan art? Here comes 'First TAGAP' by Wicked Red Panda! The piece focuses on what the original TAGAP was about – the continuous duel between Pablo and Pedro. And revisiting the first TAGAP in higher detail is a timely topic, with the upscaled Classic TAGAP arriving next month.
The attention to detail is amazing, from the accurate props littering the battlefield to Pedro staying up via having an OneUp pill taped to his leg! To appreciate all the detail, the image is available in widescreen wallpaper formats up to 4k.
Thank you for this amazing artwork, Wicked Red Panda! And remember to check out his VK page for more great art.

Classic TAGAP 4k wallpapers!
For the upcoming project Classic TAGAP, I've been going through my archives old assets. Whilst doing so I noticed that unlike all the other assets, the cover artwork both TAGAP and TAGAP 2 were done in resolutions good enough for 4k wallpapers.
In case of the first TAGAP, though the cover art was in high-res, the rest of the assets weren't, so this 2019 version is a full reproduction. TAGAP 2 one was an simple conversion job and was released earlier this month.

Officially announcing: Classic TAGAP
I've been talking about this project on Twitter, but I think it is time to announce it proper.
TAGAP and TAGAP 2 are currently being remastered for x64 platforms.
Further into the past x86 platform fades, more prevalent the compatibility issues become with the old builds, so it is time to bring these games back proper. However, the project Classic TAGAP isn't just a port – the new versions will carry quite a few additions and tweaks. The games themselves remain as-is, quirks and all, but they will now also have the following;
For more information on these new versions, check out the latest blog update!
These new versions will be ready to launch on, you guessed it: TAGAP Day 2019 – July 31st!

World Penguin Day – and the "Shape of Things to Come"
Yay! It is April 25th, better known as the World Penguin Day!
I've been diving head-first into the murky depths of TAGAP and TAGAP 2 source codes with the aim of creating proper 64 bit modern ports. This means I haven't had the time to create a special Weekly Penguin wallpaper for this glorious day. However, I do have something different – and dare I say, more special – to share.
You could call it a teaser. I call it The Shape of Things to Come;
Have an awesome World Penguin Day, everybody!

Penguin Awareness Day 2019
It's Penguin Awareness Day! And here at Penguin DT we are celebrating, together with the latest penguin arrival, Pudding. Here he is partying with our grumpy old Funky Penguin and the cheeky Erik! This is also available as a wallpaper.
Pudding will get his own proper Weekly Penguin spot in the not-too-distant future. However, it must be said that Pudding comes from the UK and he has joined this penguin family thanks to the super-awesome Perry the Penguin. Huge thank you and a toast to Perry!
Have a fun Penguin Awareness Day!

Back in action – with Weekly Penguins!
After a month-long break, Penguin DT is back in action!
This means that as of today, Weekly Penguin is back in its weekly schedule! We start by introducing you to the new adopted friends of our penguins!
Those new to our site, Weekly Penguin is a feature that updates on every Tuesday, showcasing penguin artefacts from the collection of the Head Penguin Jouni. And it's not just cute and fluffy plush penguins, as they can get weird.
Additionally the development on further TAGAP 3 updates and our next project have resumed – so expect more on those in the near future! And obviously our Games of the Year blog is on the way later in the week.
