Uh oh, a flock of ducklings has gone missing, and it's up to Duck Duck to save the day! Can you help them find all seven?

I mean... it's not really your responsibility. I'm sure they'll be fine on their own. Why don't you just take some time to wander around and enjoy yourself? And hey, if you happened to find some ducklings along the way, that's cool too.

i didn't know what i was supposed to do  at first so I just walked around for 10 minutes. Honestly was so much fun.


The movement in this game is top-tier! Excellent level of momentum and a turning radius that looks realistic while being fun to play with.

I only found 3 ducks but was still fun I love the dialogue but the map was too big and hard to find ducks because of that.


i won



Really nice! Gaphics and music go together so well, and gameplay is very simple yet engaging!


As A Duck, I Can Say Its So Good

Music is awesome! And gameplay is good.


i looooove this game i could wander around and quack for hours


I liked the look of this game but it was kinda tedious to find all the ducklings with how much empty space there is on the map.

I wish instead on 2 quack buttons, one was used as something to help find the ducks. Or your tracks not disappearing could help a lot, a map that shows where you have been would also be useful.


this is really fun! they're so hard to find haha


sean why are you so cool

So Sooooo cute :)

Just wish I had managed to find the ducklings :(


thanks for sharing!


Cool game, was wondering how you made the trees and buildings? Is it just the layered sprite method?

pretty much, yeah; the pico-8 cartridge is available for download if you're interested in seeing how it's implemented

are...u ....serIOSUS DUCKS?!

I NED THIS!! But my storage is too small for it because of all the stuff windows 10 already has. TwT


I love it but I think a mini-map might be helpful.

Honestly just a good game in general! Quite peaceful and simple, while looking pretty diffrent, in a really good way.

Nice game. Liked the pseudo-3d effect. The encounter with the 'mountain climber' was sort of funny as well! It would be good perhaps to have some clues on the way as to where some of the ducks might be, though. Anyways, good job!

I found them all great work on this! Nice dithering and love the 2.5d effect ;D The music, sound effects and dialogue are cute too ^^
