A few days back, homebrew developer TacticalPenguin has released a sorta, like a tag game called Chase the Penguin. It was first designed to be a two-player game wherein you could either be the penguin or the crosshair – control the crosshair with the face buttons and use the D-pad to move the penguin around the screen. It’s that simple.

So now, for it not to be too simple, TacticalPenguin has updated this Lua game to version 0.5. This time around, he added some features such as a simple AI, a multiplayer mode, and a credits screen. The changes may look like baby steps to most of you, but the dev has a lot of things planned out for the next release of this game and they are the following:

  • Improve AI
  • Score/timing system
  • Redo the in-game graphics
  • Make standalone
  • Ad-Hoc mode

The game is still in its early stages, so you guys play nice in the comments section. Aside from that, there are some who are requesting for him to make a picture of a penguin that has been shot and is all bloody, this will then be shown when you catch the penguin. If a lot of people will ask for it,  he might just work on it. As gory as that may sound, if that’s what floats your boat, then go ahead.
