Pet Penguins

Pet Penguins version 0.1.0 is now available.

This is a very early alpha release so that the community can follow along with the development and provide feedback. In this version there are ten penguins and a small iceberg for them to chill out on. You can toss the penguins fish, pick up the penguins, and move the camera around. There are not yet any customization features. I do anticipate being able to change the number and kinds of penguins. It would also be nice to be able to add more icebergs of different sizes and shapes.

You can find the new Pet Penguins web app at petpenguins.com.

Baby Penguins That You Can Pick Up

I added a couple updates to the Penguins gadget today. If you have the gadget on your page already, you should see that there are now three baby penguins waddling around with the others. If you want to change the number of babies, you can do that in the settings. The other update allows you to drag and drop the penguins. Thanks to delabs for that suggestion.

Penguins Update

Over the past couple of days, I’ve made some improvements to the penguins that make them look more realistic. I’ve given them a small neck in order to make their heads look less like circles. I also made it so they look toward the location they are walking to, rather than just looking forward all the time.

I’ll be adding them to Netvibes and Pageflakes soon.

New Penguins Gadget

Version 1.0 of the Penguins gadget is finally available to the public. Right now they basically just waddle around, follow your mouse and look cute. When the gadget is on your homepage, edit the settings to change the number of penguins and add a background image.

Next week, I will be adding some baby penguins to follow their parents.
