A duck has an adventure, a story game. (requires Flash)

1. Once you complete one route, it might not actually be entirely complete. When you explore another route, it's possible for it to join with the old one and make new paths available. Use the Zoom Out option to find new unexplored branches.

2. Quack.

I love the headline joke so much. And the duck duck goose joke. But we shouldn't forget how sinister those little guys are.

The achievements were ok. The hats were awesome. Now I understand why everyone plays TF2. Because Hats.

The visual style is lovely and the branching narrative is very pleasing. But I'm a bit bummed about the values it seems to be transmitting through the narrative.

I'm confused, which values are those?

I'm not sure you can call this a game. As visions go, I'd have to say this was closer to Scott McCloud's than, say, Shigeru Miyamoto's.

It's not a game, strictly speaking, and sometimes I make this very distinction. But the definition is somewhat pedantic. Just calling it a game is close enough to people's conceptions of what a computer game is to pass. I try to be practical about this.
