Meet Burgess, Danny and Robin from SANCCOB

For the final Weekly Penguin of 2016 we shall continue something that has turned into a tradition already; Meet African Penguin chicks Burgess, Danny and Robin!

Naturally, these fellows are penguin chicks 'adopted' as part of preservation efforts of SANCCOB (Southern African Foundation for the Conservation of Coastal Birds). For more information on these three fellows and SANCCOB, check out this week's Weekly Penguin entry.

African Penguin Awareness Day!

Today is African Penguin Awareness Day, celebrating the awesomeness of this endangered flightless bird and raising awareness about their protection. So naturally as penguin-obsessed folk, we take this as a chance to celebrate with new TAGAP 3 screenshot!

But don't stop with TAGAP 3, days like these are a perfect excuse to stop, whip out Wikipedia or YouTube and spend the day watching penguin media. Not that you should need an excuse for that, but if you do, here it is.

And if you want to aid these amazing critters, please consider helping awesome folks like SANCCOB in their protection efforts. You can do it various ways – either by volunteering, donating, adopting penguins or perhaps by buying one these handmade fellows.

Have a waddling African Penguin Awareness Day!

Lego penguins!

Today is Tuesday and that means it's time for our weekly feature; Weekly Penguin! Since this week we're trying something different again, we thought this would be good time to highlight the feature once more!

See, this week we cooked up a stop-motion time lapse video of the assembly of these two cutesy Lego penguins. Naturally, like most of the penguin figurines and plush toys we feature, these fellows, too, are featured as a desktop wallpaper.

And as always, Weekly Penguin is indeed a weekly feature here at TAGAP HQ. Just hit that penguin icon at the top-right corner of the site to see the latest featured penguin, updated every Tuesday!

Happy Birthday, Duke Nukem 3D!

Today marks the 20th anniversary of Duke Nukem 3D – and we have to celebrate with an appropriately nuclear Penguin Nukem wallpaper!

Penguin Nukem

And of course this epicness is also available as wallpaper!

Duke Nukem 3D is as special to me and TAGAP as DOOM is; Whilst DOOM turned me into a gamer and raised my awareness of mods, Duke 3D was the game I started modding myself. It provided the bedrock for my first actual levels, first game scripts and first game sprites. On top of that, I still think that the design of the game borders on perfect, brilliantly balancing the eternal struggles of 'scripting vs. emergent gameplay' and 'realism vs. arcade action'.

In addition to the anniversary going on, the official Duke website has a countdown ticking away towards a reveal of some sorts. Naturally I'm beyond excited to see this ass-kicking loudmouth making a return, whatever form it takes. Let's hope this comeback turns out as successful as that of DOOM.

Hail to the king, baby!

Happy World Penguin Day!

Surprise! Weekly Penguin arrives one day early, just in time to celebrate the World Penguin Day, April 25th! While one could argue that for us at Penguin DT EVERY day is the penguin day, now it's a perfect time for everyone to join in our celebration of our flightless bird friends.

And how are we celebrating the day this year? With a new penguin wallpaper, of course!

Happy Feet Two's Erik

Penguin Awareness Day 2016; Meet The Funky Prophet!

It's Penguin Awareness Day, the other one of the two days created to celebrate the greatest critters in the world! While here 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 SANCCOB and WWF.

As it's becoming a tradition, we join the celebration by letting you meet another principal character from TAGAP 3; The Funky Prophet!

In addition to The Funky Prophet's grand wallpaper début, we've have a new Making of TAGAP 3 blog post for a proper introduction.

Also; Penguin Awareness Day coincides with Tom Baker's birthday. So...

Have a fun Penguin Awareness Day – and Happy Birthday to the Fourth Doctor!
