Weekly Penguin

Weekly Penguin 765

Here's something that will undoubtedly get re-visited later when it is more timely; a Kickstarted game called Mission in Snowdriftland by tons of bits. The game is a brilliant little pixel art platformer with a twist – the game doubles as a Christmas calendar, with a level per day. You play as Chubby the snow man on his quest to save Christmas from the evil El Pix. And the main foes – the 'koopas of Snowdriftland', if you will – are penguins called Pinkus.

However, more on the game when I cover it closer to the season it is tied to. In the meantime, here are some of the physical backer goodies that just arrived. There was no physical version of the game itself on the cards, but you know me, I can't turn down wacky penguin merch. In this case; plenty of art cards and stickers, as well as the game's hero Chubby in pin and key-chain form.


You should still check out the game, it is a fun platformer regardless of the season.
