Hi there everyone!


With the new update we launched for Hungry Penguin (android) we're oficially announcing that half of the income generated by the game will be donated to foundations and organizations helping real penguins around the world!

We'll be completely transparent on the game's revenue and opened a discussion board on itch to discuss which foundations and organizations we should donate to. So don't hesitate to tell us what you think!


Penguins are having a hard time because of global warming and we're very happy to be able to help them doing what we love: creating games :)


Take care,


Friendly Llama

Hi everyone! I hope you're all doing well :)


It's been a long time since we last updated Hungry Penguin but now I'm glad to say that we were finally able to get through all that android apk signing key stuff! We just uploaded a new update and it will soon be available.


iu_314691_8137909.png


Now you can gather up shells and use them to unlock new penguins or get a second chance after loosing (this will make the scores go higher up!) You can get shells either by catching them during the game or by in-app purchases. But we're not going to keep earnings for us. Half of the income generated by Hungry Penguin (IAP and ads) will go directly to help penguins! We'll be completely transparent on how much we generate and I will consult with you on which foundations and organizations are more trustworthy so we can all save penguins by just playing :) Isn't this amazing?


I'll tell you more about this later once we have the version up and running and have made sure everything is working! You can still download the current version of the game. I hope you enjoy playing Hungry Penguin as much as we did making it!


Take care!

Hey everybody! :)


I was selected to vote for the best games of April here on newgrounds and I asked my humans to do ir for me (it's hard to vote without hands). They will play all the games and stream it on Mati's channel, CeMaty. It will mostly be in spanish but if you want we can also talk in english ;) You can also send us your own games if you want us to play!


I hope you join! See ya!

Here we are, one month after we published the first version of The Eightfold Path for the Zen Jam. The game has changed a lot since, and is now looking and feeling much better! With the new redesigned map there's a big and very powerful sense of exploration as you find different places all around and multiple ways to move from one to another.


To make the best use of this, we recently added caves to the map


iu_290823_8137909.png


These caves will take you from one point to another by crossing. It's a very fun and practical way to travel so far away places. Just try not to get lost! After you exit a cave you might have more than one option to go after and each will take you to a different location. If you understand the map's distribution and keep an eye to where puzzles might be located, caves will help a lot.

I wonder what these do...


iu_290825_8137909.png


We still have to make two more puzzles and the game will be playable from start to finish! Once we figure out how to make them and polish more the other ones, we'll test it out and stream the game with our human Mati on his Twitch Channel, CeMaty. We'll then use that footage to make a gameplay trailer so you can check it out! So keep tunned and don't forget to leave a comment and follow us so you don't miss out on the game's progress :)


Take care,


Friendly Llama

Hi! How are you?


As we mentioned before, we're now working as two separate companies with Sudaka Games and it's actually been pretty fun since we're able to interact with our communities very differently and actually have different audiences. Jet & Sky is looking awesome and we hope to have a build in around two months so we can find a publisher and receive more feedback :)


As for me, the Friendly Llama, we've been working hard and intensely on The Eightfold Path and it's amazing how much it has changed. We remade the map which is now four times bigger and redesigned the puzzles so they make a better use of the space. There are now a few challenges before the final puzzle, which makes it feel kind of like Zelda A Link to the Past, except there is no fighting in this game :) If you're into exploration and puzzles, you will very much like the gameplay and how the game feels!


Thanks for reading, we'll be posting more news regularly about the project! Don't forget to leave us a comment ;)

Heyy how's it going?


We have a big announcement! We split our company into two brands: Friendly Llama and Sudaka Games. This way, we can have more focused theme on each one. Me, the Friendly Llama, will work on games about loving animals and taking care of the planet, like Princess Squirrel and Hungry Penguin :) and Sudaka Games will deal with the more politically charged and satirical games, like Jet & Sky and TV Ads.


We know we're going to have to work way more in order to keep both active, but we're very excited for what we have planned for the future and the vision that we want to share with you.


So don't forget to follow both accounts if you don't want to miss any of our content or just one if you're into only one of them ;)


Cheers!

Hi everybody!


Thank you so much for all the feedback on Princess Squirrel! You inspired me so much and I'm gonna be working hard on the game (I already have some pretty cool stuff that wasn't on the demo)


Feel free to check out my other games :)


Take care

Hey there!


I'm so excited :) I've been using NewGrounds for quite some time now, but never actually posted any game, until now! Princess Squirrel (a project I've been working on for some time now) is my entry for the #PixelDay2021 contest!


So, wish me luck and drop by to leave a review if you want ;)


See ya!

Hey everybody!


I'm looking for someone who can work on a pixel art logo on 80's arcade style for a game I'm working on :) If you're interested send me your portfolio and let's get to work!


Cheers!

Hi there! How's it going? I'm Manuel from Friendly Llama :)


I made a post about a week ago about some projects I'm working on. One of them was Jet & Sky (check it out here). The game has a lot of progress but still has a long way to go. That's why I'm setting up a team to make it as fun as possible! I'm looking for pixel artists, illustrators, music producers (who can get that sweet retro synthwave sound), but specially (or at least the reason I'm making this post) I need 2D animators. I want the game to have short animated cinematics at the start of every mission in the style of good old 80's cartoons. They're mainly suposed to be funny and give context to the story. I already have the full screenplay.


That's it :) If you're interested don't hesitate to send me a message and hopefully we can chat more about it. Next week I'm gonna be at the online version of Gamescom and I'll be showing it to publishers. So if everything goes well, we'll have a dope shoot 'em up to chase criminals and laugh our asses out to.


Cheers!


Manuel
