      Received my playing cards this past week, and they are aduckable! Looking forward to an update about the prints. :)

      This was undeniably cute! Wish it were longer, but it's really well made :) classic adventure game feel all with cute ducklings and music!
      Loved the pixel art and especially the little sequences when you're using an item.
      Has there been any word on the shipping yet? I'm not sure if I should check kickstarter or if I should've gotten an email or anything. Still greatly looking forward to things even if they still take a while (300+ drawings surely isn't just a few for one person!) So good luck if you're still at it :)

      Since "?" is an invalid file name character, it may not get extracted. I was able to extract it with Winrar since it changes the filename automatically.

      Indeed - the PC link contains a OSX copy. :S

      Hi, does anyone here have any problems downloading the game from the link? When I clicked the PC link and downloaded the zip file, all got was an empty folder called "_MACOSX" after file extraction.

      So.. is that it? It took over $6k and five months to make a game consisting of 16 screens? Please tell me this is just a preview of the "real" game.

      I've played it a few times now and the artwork and music are great. There were quite a few times where it froze on me though (after giving something to the baloon guy and after examining the first park bench) and I encountered the same problem as ☜⌠nockgeneer⌠☞, where I got stuck coming from the left. I've tried it on the web and pc so far.

      I moved recently so the address I provided before is incorrect. I haven't received a response from my previous direct message but I sent another message with the updated address. Please check the message and send the print that I requested there instead.

      Any ETA on the physical rewards (seeing as how Louie has yet to draw my piece of custom art, it will probably be a while)?

      I'm moving in late March/early April and need to provide a new address.

      PS: I'd be happy if someone from the team could reply. Sadly, I've never received an answer to any of my questions before. Which is rather strange, considering the people from other projects I've backed usually reply within 3-4 days, at the very least.

      *** SPOILER ALERT ***

      Game froze for me after giving the fleas to the drummer. I would recommend a modification to the game that saves your items and progress in an LSO or Cookie after each change, that way the page can be refreshed when the game freezes and you can pick up where you left off.

      Another bug I noticed is that I get stuck to the fence along the bottom of the map, if you press up against the fence and then move left to the next screen, it gets stuck.

      Aww, it's so cute and awesome! Very nice work and just the right sort of humor for a classic-style adventure game! Side note, I also borrowed one of your images for my desktop pattern. Lovely art!

      **GAME SPOILER**

      I had a stuck issue in the same place as Skyen Rice, handing the Mountain Dew to the balloon salesman. The menu options disappeared too, I noticed. Running on Chrome, and it looks like it didn't update to the very most recent Flash version, so maybe that's part of the problem. I'll try the download version later.

      I also got momentarily stuck earlier walking from the Mountain Dew machine screen into the black top hat man screen: I could walk horizontally along the bottom of the screen, but not up or down. It eventually unfroze, and I was able to walk back into the previous screen somehow after wandering a while offscreen behind the black frame.

      Oh, and for the custom artwork, it looks like there should be about 250 of those he has to make. At his current rate of one-a-day, that's almost eight (8) months of work, or almost 38 weeks. Add to that the animations, etc... he does in place of art sometimes, unforeseen circumstances, etc... and you can see that it might easily take him a year before he's done them all. All for a paltry 6K. Take pity on the poor guy.

    13. nockgeneer on February 11, 2013

      Great job!


      Ran into an issue entering from the west were the band is playing after having united the musicians. I'm stuck and can't even return the way I came.

      Good night! ;)

      Adam, I, too, am wondering about the drawings. I'd love to know how many are left to be done as I've not seen mine on Louie's tumblr yet.

      Any word on the custom drawings?

    17. Tim & Kurt on February 11, 2013

      Just beat the game, no issues. But the all mountain dew soda machine was brilliant! Huzza!

      Zael - I tried it with 7zip and the file appeared!

    19. Skyen Rice on February 11, 2013


      Gave the Mountain Dew to the Balloon Salesman, the game froze on me. Music's fine, animations are running, but I can't quack or access items or anything. Best guess is it's frozen between me giving the dew and whatever scene triggering that was supposed to trigger.

    20. David Kerley on February 11, 2013

      Awesome, I played a bit of it and it's great. I was wondering when my drawing will be emailed to me?

    21. Zael on February 11, 2013

      PC Download works fine after you rename the file inside to something that doesn't contain illegal characters (such as a question mark), for me the WinRar did it automatically. No need to pay any regard to that Macosx folder either..

    22. Jessica Jaszczak on February 11, 2013

      Hi guys! I'm playing online. When I got to the front gate where the man in the black top hat is standing, the game froze up and quit. :(

      When I follow the PC download link, it just downloads a .zip of a folder called 'DQWin' that contains an empty folder called '_MACOSX'.
