Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin – what you wish you knew before you experienced it

Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin mimics the conditions of Antarctica as closely as possible. That means that the building will be cold – very cold – and that the building will likely be dark, as the sun rises and sets differently since the tilt of the earth’s axis keeps the sun below the horizon for months at a time, making permanent human habitation impossible.
