Pudgy Penguins Shares New Short Story Film, The Great Blizzard

Earlier today, Pudgy Penguins shared its first iteration of the project's storytime vision, Chapter One: The Great Blizzard, a short film created in partnership with Non-Fungible Films.

The film's narrator tells a story to the group of penguins huddled around a campfire.

"Settle down, children," the voice says. "I have a story to share with you. The world of the antarctic is a dangerous place. It is important that you learn from the brave pengus before you."

"The penguins have survived many icy adversities in our time," the voice continues, perhaps in reference to the project's price drop prior to the Luca Netz buyout. "But nothing compared to the Great Blizzard. We lost our huddle, little ones. The air was vicious, shards of ice piercing our tufts without mercy. It seemed all hope was lost for us. We had but one choice: march on and hope to find safety together."

The video shows different Pudgy Penguin characters, officially licensed for the film by the project itself.

"We realized that when we work together, the blizzard was not so cold," the voice goes on. "The most tired among us could rest in the center, while others trudged forward."

Then, the penguins start singing a song.

"Penguins be strong, we march along," the penguins sing in unison, before the voice returns. "After miles of marching, we came across an enormous igloo, walls made up of blocks larger than the pudgiest of penguins. We had to stand on top of each other just to reach the doorknob. That's when we realized the door was locked shut."

The nearly three-minute video concludes in a mysterious fashion.

"The blizzard raged on as we waddled around the igloo to find another entrance. Some of us found blocks of ice with mysterious markings. Some found obscure rocks. Others even found some fishing rods. But there was no key to be found."

The penguins interrupt their "grandpa," asking him to explain what happened next, but he does not.

"That wouldn't be much fun, now would it? The best stories leave us wondering," grandpa says. "Everything you need to solve the mystery is here in our igloo. Now, go out and search. I'll be waiting for you."

IP and licensing is "an important piece to [the] storytelling initiative," according to Pudgy Penguins' official Twitter account. To submit a Pudgy Penguin or Lil Pudgy NFT to appear in an upcoming story, go to this form here.
