Developer Explains How Club Penguin's Legendary Avatar Was Made

Chris Hendricks has offered an in-depth explanation of how the legendary game's penguin avatar was modeled and animated.

Last week, the legendary massively multiplayer online (MMO) game Club Penguin, developed by New Horizon Interactive, RocketSnail Games, and Disney Interactive Studios, celebrated its 18th birthday. To commemorate the occasion, Chris Hendricks, a Game Developer, Music Composer, and one of the creators of the original game, has shared a comprehensive breakdown explaining how the renowned penguin avatar was modeled and animated.

In the breakdown, Chris thoroughly explained how the avatar was adapted from Penguin Chat 3, talked about modeling and animating the character, and showed how the iconic dance animation was set up. Furthermore, the artist discussed why Swift 3D, an obscure 3D software developed by Electric Rain, was chosen for the project, explored the art style, shared some behind-the-scenes technical details about the avatar, and much more.
