Quoting: PenglingAs a result of being sponsored by British biscuit brand, Penguin (a sponsorship which resulted in Penguin outselling Kit Kat for the first time ever, back in the day), James Pond 2 - Codename: RoboCod (Amiga) features penguin characters who need to be rescued, as well as small toy penguins that appear as collectible items.

The Pittsburgh Penguins had a different logo in the 90's and early 2000's.....

Got a couple more;


The platform-shooter 20XX (PC) features some rocket-powered robot-penguin enemies!


Another obvious one for a Linux-gaming site: Super Tux Kart (PC) features Tux the Linux Penguin as one of the playable drivers.

Sorry - didn't mean to step on anyone's toes, there!

Syberia II is pretty cool.

It takes place on the ice planet Hoth and have snow ewoks.
Or maybe not. But it does have penguins!

Deus Ex Mankind Divided has a hidden trophy that involves collecting golden penguin statues. Apparently a nod to a real life art installation in Prague. https://deusex.fandom.com/wiki/The_Golden_Rookery



Also, Batman Arkham City -- gold rating on protondb -- had a bunch of ceramic penguins in The Penguin's Museum. I think you got a little xp bonus for breaking them.

I got my first Bomberman game for my Game Boy for Christmas when I was a youngster, so here's a penguin in a Bomberman Game Boy game for this Christmas.


Bomber Boy (Game Boy) features a penguin enemy in its ice area, and if it lays its flippers on a bomb that you've set, it will freeze it into a useless block of ice!
