Duck Quest? is an 8-bit RPG/adventure game about a duck. To be more precise it’s about a mother duck trying to find her lost ducklings. I seriously couldn’t make up something this simple and great if I tried.
The game will be made in flash and found on their website and according to the reply I got on Kickstarter, downloadable by backers allowing them to play it on the go.
Here is the description of Duck Quest? given on its kickstarter page:
Giant tanks. Epic explosions. Mind-blowing special effects. You are not going to find any of these in Duck Quest? - and yet you will be enthralled and engrossed in this charming 8-bit adventure about loss, redemption and lots of quacking.
Join a mother duck on her quest (?) to find her gale-scattered young ‘uns throughout a city park. Along the way, she will meet a host of memorable pixelated characters, who may touch you with their heart-rending stories. However, the more likely response is a chuckle, or possibly even a guffaw.
To be honest, I’m sold on this and I’ve already backed it. The concept of the game had me from second one and the fact that the kickstarter video (shown below) made me laugh was just the icing on the cake.
I’m already happy to see that it has reached and beat its $500 target. Check it out, throw a bit of money at it and feel happy that you are backing something that just sounds great.
