The first two TAGAP titles were released on July 31st, making it our very own TAGAP Day. And in 2022, we're having our 15th anniversary of the apocalyptic penguin!
First things first; TAGAP 4 double-announcement trailer!
Yes, barring apocalyptic events,
The music you hear is indeed the theme song by Petja Heiskanen, aptly called 'Theme 4 TAGAP'. Here it is in full, in video visualiser form:
And yes, the artwork featured in both the trailer and the visualiser is the final cover or key art for the game. Here it is in 4k form to decorate your desktops:
All the TAGAP Day shenanigans – and more, including the trailer commentary – are compiled in the new 'behind the scenes' blog update.
As we've entered July, that means the 15th anniversary of TAGAP is around the corner on the 31st! For this reason, it felt appropriate to feature more 'Previously on TAGAP' artwork on the Weekly Penguin arena. This time we look back at TAGAP 2.
Accompanying these fearsome penguins is a new blog mini-update, covering what to expect from the TAGAP Day 2022 and info on where we're at with TAGAP 4 development.
This week's Weekly Penguin celebrates the latest TAGAP 3 patch and it heading to the games distribution service Itch.io! We do with more 'Previously on TAGAP' artwork from TAGAP 4, focusing on the space penguins of Pluto!
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.
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.
