PENGUINATI: Highly Anticipated Project Going Into In Production
Recent News and Developments
A little more than a year ago the script outline for a Penguinati themed graphic novel and animation was completed. The project was stalled as we were working on raising capital to hire animators but since that time, technology has advanced and much of the work has been streamlined with the aid of ChatGPT and Dall-E for script enhancements and storyboard generation.
The graphic novelization will be incorporated into the IPS Inciter as a recurring comic strip. The novella will be released as an audiobook. The success of this project as an audiobook and graphic novel will determine how fast we move it into animation. We’ll be using stop-motion animation with 3D printed characters, btw.
Synopsis: The Penguins Beat Man to the Singularity
An abandoned Antarctic research facility is inhabited by migrating penguins in search of krill. They gorge themselves on nootropics—smart drugs—and over the years a community of highly intelligent penguins accelerating their own evolution with neural-link and cyborg technology.
This facility is linked to other facilities throughout the world via hyperloop technology and their world passes through a Deep Underground Military Base in Nevada. This base has been repurposed by a billionaire entreprenuer after he obtained it as part of a military contract. It contains storage facilities for all manner of non-FDA approved mind expanding drugs, nootropics, and untested Life-Extenstion treatments.
Like the Antaractic research facility, this base was invaded, but not by penguins. Shortly after obtaining it, the billionaire had it redesigned to resemble a Mars base, renaming it Mars Base 42. The construction crew unwillttingly brought stowaways: rats. These rats eventually helped themselves to the food stored in the vast warehouses and it wasn’t long before they find tear into the life extention and smart drugs.
Within a few generations, the Superrats emerged. As enhanced, super intelligent, cyborgs, they began to explore the tunnels. There are a few skirmishes between the Superrats and the Penguinati who encroach ever closer as they too seek to expand their domain before a full-scale war breaks out. At this same time, the Superrats are confronted by another threat: human exterminators.
The exterminators first send down drones, which are defeated and repurposed by the Superrats who see the drone tech as a game changer in their battles against their rivals from the south.
The question is: will they be able to put aside their feud and join forces to take out a mutual threat? Do the humans stand a chance? Afterall, they failed to reach the Singularity first and the threats from below are replicating…
What’s next for The Penguinati?
The script is cohesive and very close to publication. I’m still adding in dialogue and details to make the audiobook more interesting. Expect another update around Thanksgiving.
Other IPS Updates:
The IPS Inciter is ready for publication. Everything has been delayed a bit but it won’t be much longer. The AUTOHOAXOLOGY 101 orders are slow but moving.
We’ll be live again soon. I’m going to be working on the Inciter for the next day or two.
