Penguin First Person Shooter. More like Quack than Quake then…

Today Frogames, an independant video games developer, announced that Penguins Arena – Sedna’s World, an innovating, exciting, funny and colorfull FPS, has arrived.

And this game gets what it takes: Penguins Arena is a prize-winner of the Intel® Game Demo Contest among 145 entries from 29 countries around the world! Penguins Arena has won the 1st-place prize in the Best Game on the Go category and the award for the Best use of Torque in a game demo!

It all begins when a penguin legend comes to life in the form of Sedna, the ancient Penguin Goddess. Global warming, pollution … Penguin tribes are endangered. Sedna utters them that there is room for but one tribe. And so the purging begins.
Then it’s the player’s turn to join the snowball battles and drive the other tribes into the sea. Penguin Arena is a thrilling and innovative First Penguin Shooter with very short rounds and where the magic of reincarnation, combined with the supernatural ability to return to the game as a ghost, ensures that the character has every chance to change its tribe’s fate.

"We wanted Penguins Arena to be a nervous game" said Christophe CANON, co-founder of Frogames “Our only purpose was to create a cool video game that is fun to play and, dare I say, slightly addictive!”.

Indeed Penguins Arena is a fun, cartoonish and challenging game with an underlying message that’s as real as today’s headlines. What a great way to combine fun, computers and gaming to convey an urgent environmental message to people of all ages.

It is also a real First Person Shooter with some incredible innovations: no blood, just snowballs ; very short rounds ; reincarnations system and the player can interact with the game even when its tribe is eliminated. And of course it’s a multiplayer game (LAN and Internet).

Penguins Arena – Sedna’s World is available for Windows and MACOS X. It was made with the Torque Game Engine.

It can be purchased from for $19.95 USD and more information about this title can be found at
