Yes, I know you are as surprised as I am. But… bear with me. The Penguins War is a new online shooter with third person view (MMOTPS), developed by Snail Game from China. You may know Snail Game as the developer for Voyage Century and Age of Wulin as well. According to reports, players are not only able to play as Penguins, but also as various historical figures as well.
When answering a question about the lack of action when compared to a first person shooter, the official reply given was that the customizable skill matching system and random field items found in the game will cover this perception. The Penguins War will also be a fast-movement shooter. There is this feature where players will automatically lean against structures (for example staking out corners), but there isn’t any visual given at the moment
In a market currently flooded with FPS, will this rather whimsical TPS game survive? More news when the game is officially revealed at ChinaJoy 2011.
