Description
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, each of which can either be turned on or off, or can have its 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 game contains 50 challenging puzzles including a full set of tutorial levels. There’s also a level editor to allow you to design and share your own puzzles.

We absolutely promise we will release it!

Still don't know when at the moment - we have a lot of different projects on the go on multiple platforms. But we haven't forgotten about this one.

Thanks for your reply, I hope you'll be able to release this game on Steam. It would be a pity not to do so after passing Greenlight

Not at the moment to be honest - we've been working on a lot of games recently so unfortunately this one has been pushed to one side temporarily. But I'd like to think we can get it released this year. I don't think the disappearance of Greenlight will affect it as it's already passed through that process.

Any ETA for Steam release since Greenlight is going to disappear soon?

Yeah, that must be it... (he says after releasing 10 console games) :)

(in jest) That's because if people have a PC with Steam, they don't need a filthy console to get their games going.

There are surprisingly few people who play our games on Steam who also played the XBLIG versions. Obviously The Penguin Factory is a new one, but we are in the process of converting at least one more for evenutal release on Steam (subject to Greenlight).

I've played several Battenberg Software games back when I could still access Xbox Live on the Xbox 360, and I'm glad they have transitioned to Steam because I think their games are truly hidden gems in the indie games market.

I Love All Battenberg games

I just noticed that this game will have Linux support. And it's about penguins. XD
