Gameplay

Players would join as a normal, blue penguin, while in a different edition of Experimental Penguins, you would be able to wear a santa hat. Developers would get a Snow Trekker to roam around the island (the players would also get it by touching the North Pole in the game).

History

Experimental Penguins stayed up for less than a year, but it got several awards. It closed down in December 2000,[3] and then Penguin Chat was released a few years later.
