It's chaos at The Penguin Factory!
The conveyor belts are switched off, the penguin transportation tubes are malfunctioning and the snack machine is out of order. In such sub-standard working conditions, it's going to take all of your skill to ensure those crucial penguin deliveries are sent out on time. And just in case you find yourself laughing derisively at how straightforward you consider that particular task to be, rumour has it that some pesky imposters are attempting to sneak their way into the delivery boxes! Your only defence against these troublesome fraudsters is constant vigilance and a large wooden mallet!
The Penguin Factory is a puzzle game with deceptively simple controls. The game contains a number of weird and wonderful contraptions, some of which can either be turned on or off, or can have their direction changed. And that’s it. Your task is to get every penguin safely into a delivery box by getting each piece of equipment working in the right way at the right time. When the delivery boxes are full, and any imposter penguins are "dealt with", your task is complete!
The Penguin Factory was released on Steam on 7th June 2019 for PC, Mac and Linux, and on Microsoft Store for Windows 10 on 27th September 2019 with full Xbox Live support, including 1,000 gamerscore to go for. It contains 100 challenging levels and a level editor to allow you to design and share your own puzzles (on the Steam release this is via the Steam Workshop).
