Pengu is a wonderfully chilled out little pixel art game where you control a cute little penguin as it relaxes on a tiny island, fishing, sleeping by the fire and making the odd unexpected catch.
If you’re looking for action then you’ve come to the wrong place, but if you’re looking for somewhere to chill out, kick back and do some fishing then Pengu has you covered. In the game you control a cute little penguin as it relaxes on a little island. You can go inside and sit by the fire until you doze off, you can sing and you can fish.
Catching fish is fairly simple – you just cast your rod then perform a simple QTE to reel fish in when they bite. There are various different types of fish to catch, but there are also other objects that you occasionally catch that can give you a little more to do on the island – such as a book for cataloging fish or a radio for listening to lo-fi beats.
Even with the occasional new object that you catch Pengu is still a very sedate and chilled-out experience. Nothing much happens there, but it’s an oddly addictive little game and a perfect place to kick back and relax for a while. Highly recommended.
