African Penguin Awareness Day!
Today is African Penguin Awareness Day!
The African penguins (Spheniscus demersus) obviously live in southern Africa and are, sadly, endangered with their numbers falling quite rapidly. African penguins are also known with two other names; First is 'the black-footed penguin', referring to their black feet that easily distinguish them from their similar looking cousins, Humboldt and Magellanic penguins.
Other, more awesome nickname for these fellows is 'Jackass penguin'. They're called that because, well, this:
This day is all about trying to raise awareness about these awesome little critters and the protection efforts going on. If you are interested in trying to help out, donating to SANCCOB (Southern African Foundation for the Conservation of Coastal Birds) might be your thing. Or simply spread the awareness on social media – there's a special Facebook group set up for just these tiny Tuxedo folks!
And it wouldn't be a 'penguin day' without us celebrating it somehow, so how about new TAGAP 3 screenshots – from a level we haven't showcased before!
Have a waddlin' African Penguin Awareness Day!

Jack is back!
In case you haven't noticed by now, the two obsessions prominent here at Penguin DT headquarters are penguins and Doctor Who – and it's been a while since we've had the chance to combine the two. And now that Big Finish Productions is bringing back the grand spin-off Torchwood starring John Barrowman as Jack Harkness, it's time for penguin version of Captain Jack himself!
You know, this one started out as a mere pencil sketch I doodled on my lunch break yesterday. The doodle was so good I thought I'd clean it a bit and post it on Twitter for the special occasion. But one thing led to another and before I realized what happened, I had spent the evening photoshopping the doodle into a proper wallpaper!
So, a toast and a celebratory penguin to the return of Jack Harkness!

TAGAP 3 gameplay under microscope
Delta Velocity returns with an in-depth TAGAP 3 gameplay analysis! He has really put the trailer under a microscope, digging up almost every detail with such a keen eye that it could conspiracy theorists TAGAP-green with envy;
As a fan of game trailers I find it fun to on the receiving end of an analysis like this! Time Lords know I myself have watched that E3 trailer for DOOM so many times it borders on unhealthy.
Thank you, Delta Velocity!

TAGAP Day 2015 – and TAGAP 3 Gameplay Trailer!
It is that time of the year again – the anniversary of the release dates of both TAGAP and TAGAP 2! To celebrate the occasion, we bring you the first full-length gameplay trailer – and by full-length, we mean it's a full level playthrough clocking at over 8 minutes! And the best part? It's in full 1080p and 60 FPS!
For full breakdown of the trailer, check out our accompanying new blog post. There are plenty of details pointed out you might otherwise miss. Also, here is a selection of screenshots lifted directly from this trailer;
But wait, wait; That is not all! This being the first unedited gameplay reel, it also is the public début of the TAGAP3 soundtrack, again composed and produced by Petja Heiskanen. The song is called "Electromagnetic Boogie" and is available for streaming and download on our SoundCloud;
Have an awesome TAGAP Day 2015!
