Penguin Studios (PS) was a programming group for the TI-83+ and TI-84+ graphing calculators. They released a few notable TI-Basic programs and games including Nibbles, Agility, FallDown, Bomb Man, Cave Game, Jump, Organizer, Phoenix Basic, and Spades. The group merged with Outside The Box Programming (OTBP) in January 2007, and the members then released programs under the OTBP banner.

Group History

(Taken from OTBP forum post)

Anyway, I founded Penguin Studios back in 2004 and was the only member until spring of 2006, when several other people at my school joined. Until this point, most of the programs I had created weren't all that great and filled with labels (I made a version of DDR, HoboHunt 4 (this was before the real one came out), NYCSE; mostly textbased stuff).

Then, we joined. I have told the other members of Penguin Studios, so we should be getting more members of the forum soon.
