Chucklefish might have plans to make penguins playable.

    As of current, I plan to release a Penguin Race selector mod when 1.0 drops. It will be usable in vanilla, basically allowing players to select penguins like any other race. However, no modifications will be made to them in order for them to have armor, etc... to make sure it'll work anywhere, and users will need to spawn in items as necessary.

    First, no, it's not impossible for everyone to not be too same-y.

    Second, that's not what I meant. I'm just saying the races are too similar, and I'm talking about more than just cosmetically here.

    Developers leave left over code from planning stages in many games all the time. While this isn't exactly standard practice or even a good idea, it's actually more common than I once thought for indie games.

    It can get real messy.

    They likely updated the penguin code to allow for the penguin mercenaries currently ingame (the ones that you can hire to fight for you and become part of your crew).

    For indie games? Sorry but left over code from uncompleted or canceled parts is common even in triple A titles. I'd wager that pretty much every game ever made has at least some unused code in the finished product (well, maybe not realy simple ones, like a basic version of tetris for example).

    You are absolutely correct.

    There wont be penguins as a playable race because main story is done and there are 7 main races and they wont change it.
