Penguin3D is a project made by DamenSpike Games as part of a 1-week game developer challenge. The project was fully completed within eight days and released on October 8th 2018. It has received several version upgrades since that date in order to improve the game into the future.
Asq5 / Jack was the one who thought of the idea to make a 3D game like Club Penguin Island. During conversation with Damen, they decided it would be a good idea to make an original game based on Club Penguin Island and OldCP's lore.
Developer ChallengeAfter being inspired by Asq5, Damen Spike, the maker of Penguin3D, decided to create the game in 7 days. After 7 days, the game was mostly complete but required another day to be fully finished.
Beta TestBeta testing for Penguin3D begun on October 8th 2018. Damen made a livestream when he had officially finished the game late at night.
Penguin3D continues to be updated to this day.

MinigamesThere are several Minigames on Penguin3D. The first one created was the classic Sled Racing. After that, a flying practice game was created called Aircourse. Then on Das are the Wrath Caverns, where there are several different game play modes such as skirmish, skirmish solo, purge, purge unchained, blast, and free for all. Fishing would also be added into the game in 2021.
IslandsThere are currently nine islands in the game.
• The Island
• Providence on Penguin3D
• Axel Island
• Dorval on Penguin3D
• Ach To on Penguin3D
• Das on Penguin3D
• Cobia on Penguin3D
• Stone Isle
See Airmap for the flying routes between these islands.
Penguin3D has a mostly Spanish userbase, this was caused by the sponsored videos on El Uriel, El Orion, Foxfireraul and Alecchi. Penguin3D has caused a new influx of players into DSGHQ and some of the Spanish Penguin3D players even started to play Oldcp!
Space was officially released on June 26th, 2020.

Zpheal/Hour became the first Warden of Penguin3D on July 2nd, 2020 when Damen announced that Snaildom, LeoRPG, and Penguin3D would each have one warden to help Damen run the game. After Zpheal resigned after two years as a staff member in Penguin3D, Kace was named the new warden of Penguin3D.
On the 5th of April, Kace was demoted by Damen after helping destroy the Penguin3D Discord Server, as well as breaking the rules on the Forums and OldCP. He was replaced by Dice that night, who is still warden today.
Penguin3D will shut down on October 8 2023, the game’s fifth anniversary.
