penguin chat 1
penguin chat 1 can be played here http://www.penguinchat.com/ rsnail has said that the idea of a penguin by itself was taken off a comic strip
"Why penguins? The answer usually surprises people. I needed a simple character that I could animate for an experimental project. Looking around my desk, I saw an old Far Side comic that I clipped from a newspaper. This comic showed a penguin slipping on a banana peel. The idea for a waddling penguin with a white background was born. "
