It's FINALLY FINISHED!! God has this project bin in development for a long time; I was starting to think I wouldn't get it in for 2008.

This is a contemplative art game I made where I try to communicate what I went through with a life experience I once had. I really put my heart into this one, and I think it leaves me very emotionally vulnerable, but as long as I get my message across I think I'll be satisfied. I won't explicitly outline what the game's ABOUT or what you're SUPPOSED TO take away from it- I'll leave that up to you, the player, to make your own interpretations.

Now I know that some of you will be asking about a sequel, and believe me my inbox is allready full of suggestions for DUCK SIM 2009, but as I've mentioned in many interviews, I don't really BELIEVE in sequels. Saying that, DUCK SIM is planned to be a trilogy. I'm experimenting with this new episodic games trend and I think DUCK SIM is a perfect candidate to test the water (pun intended).

Thanks to everyone who offered help and gave support along the development of this, I am in severe financial debt to alot of people right now, but I'm confident that this is step 1 to making it all back.

So for anyone still reading this, I'll stop biding time and let you enjoy the game- Although I don't like calling it a "game", but more of an interactive experience.

Oh- Also, can you please report any glitches to me by way of either PM or E-mail, thank you.

A masterpiece!

Though the 3-D graphics did take their toll on my computer. The shading, lighting, and all graphical effects are spot on.

Easily worthy of the highest praise.

Beautiful

I can understand what you were going through when you made this. I think we've all been there before.

On that note, I think I may be the only person who actually played longer than 5 minutes. I really couldn't stop laughing. I think it really is a good satire on art, gaming, and art gaming. It asks the age old question "If I claim something is art, is it art?"

It's okay

It was okay. I liked what you did with the ending.

But how do multiple endings fit your life? :P

Was good but theres a problem.

I was very close to giving this a perfect score but sadly there is a game killing bug.

Like you said in the intro screen you can hit "q" to skip the dialog. I didn't skip any of it as it was actually quite entertaining. But then I get to the boss with the pop-goes-the-weasel music box thing, and he (it?) asks a question that I'm supposed to answer yes or no. The problem was I was skipping through his dialog and then ended up skipping the question! I saw it for a split second before the dialog ended and the boss fight music started. The life bar shows up, I start attacking, but the boss is still standing there and its life doesn't go down. The game pretty much ended there for me because I couldn't make anything happen. I even used the "mysterious blue feather", which had a nice visual effect but still nothing happened. I had to restart the game.

Other than that one bug, the game is great. The pixel art really works well with the music too. Good job! I want to see more.

It fails in one thing....

The duck won't drown if you keeps its head underwater. Apart from that, it's kind of realistic...
