Weekly Penguin
September 19th, 2023



Last Saturday was the official 'best day of the year on Twitter', likely for the last time. That is naturally Sam's Penguins hosting the annual Draw A Penguin Day – when everyone is encouraged to draw a penguin. It makes everyone's day better, give it a try!

Twitter is in death spiral whilst its owner keeps pumping gasoline to the flames, so for this year I decided to do Sam's Penguin and our Pablo comforting the now-unemployed blue bird who helped us meet.

Huge thank you for Sam and his penguins – this event always brings a smile to my face! Here's hoping we'll find a way to continue it.

This – as well as our past entries – are available as wallpapers in the penguin wallpaper archive.

TAGAP Day 2023 – Sweet Sixteen!

Thank you for 16 years of penguin world domination!

Though we usually feature tons of special treats on TAGAP Day – the anniversary of TAGAP on July 31st – this year we've struck a bit of a lull. TAGAP 4 is just out the door and development on new things has just started to pick up steam.

So, instead I thought this would be a good time to bring everyone up to speed on what's going on in form of an extra-large 'state of things' blog post.

Check it out!

Rest assured, you haven't seen the last of TAGAP yet. Things are happening behind the scenes, but are not ready for the prime time just yet. But hey, that just means it is the perfect excuse to celebrate the 'TAGAP's Sweet Sixteen' by replaying the quadrilogy!

Classic TAGAP v4.1

And here comes the second of the three maintenance updates, this time for Classic TAGAP, bringing TAGAP and TAGAP 2 to v4.1.

The biggest improvement in this version is the DPI awareness support. This means the app window isn't affected by the Windows zoom levels in any way any more. As a downside, to fully support this meant axing support for Windows 7 and 8.1.

For the detailed changes, check out the version history.

Classic TAGAP is available both on Itch.io;

Or TAGAP website – as a smaller update or as a full download.

TAGAP 4 v1.6

New development environment fully set and tested, time for a new maintenance update for TAGAP 4!

The highlights of the update are several compatibility fixes to ensure wider Windows version support (at least all the way back to 2020). Additionally, the new development environment is several versions ahead of the previous one, allowing for more detailed code analysis for potential issues. For the detailed changes, check out the version history.

As always, the game is available as a smaller update or as a full game download on Itch.io;

Or you can grab them from the TAGAP website.

Similar updates are incoming to the previous TAGAP titles as soon as next week!
