An incredibly silly game.

This game was certainly entertaining and fun to click through while I was bored in my Digital Media class. That being said, for one of those stories designed only for a quick playing, it was pretty well written. Hilarity ensued as I tried to find every ending, finding duck upon duck upon duck swarmed in every room in my home.

I feel like with the writing you’ve presented in only a short story, you have a lot of potential. I love the humor, and the way how you characterized the narrator without even describing them. It was a nice, refreshing breath of fresh air after reading so many stories written with an abundance of adjectives (long black hair, deep green eyes, pale skin) about the narrator. I enjoyed this! However, I can’t really classify this as a story, so I’m giving it the best rating I can for such a short, surface-level piece. Great job! I’ll be looking forward to a larger story!

Thought the writing was hilarious. As someone with underwhelming culinary skills and an unhealthy love for his couch, I feel a little attacked. However, as a duck, I experienced a rare feeling of truly being understood. Perhaps the author was a duck. hmmm

I successfully finished this game without blending any ducks. 5/5

I can't believe you made me do what I did. I hope this doesn't awaken something in me.

I thought this game was hilarious, but then again, this coming from someone who thinks everything is funny. I mean this game's sense of cynical, serious humor is on point.
You somehow made having a book about how to eradicate yourself of ducks on your toilet lid seem very reasonable, and perfectly okay. You made me kill a duck by putting it in a blender. I mean, that’s the type of shit you do in some grimdark edgy ass story created by a 16 yr old edgy ass emo who still lives with his parents. That's not even the craziest part, the craziest part is it was very freaking funny and enjoyable. The overall story was well built, and the only part I have beef with is the ending. It was like watching all eight series of Game of Thrones to see Jon Snow do the naughty and then kill his aunt. Like who thinks up that type of messed up shit.
The problem with the ending was that it was rushed, you could tell, and next time make the climax of the story a lot more immersive, don't want to be rude, or anything, but your peak was disappointing. The duck disappeared oh no, how did it disappear, why did it disappear, where did it go. These are the questions that build up a story, instead of making the duck randomly disappear your climax. You could use it as a mini climax In the rising action.
I would be harder on you about the missing plot structure, and lackluster of an adventure, but you made it known that this was for a project and I understand that you don´{t have all the time in the world to build up a 50-100K story, which is generally hard anyway if you were thinking about lengthening the story and making it into an even bigger and more funnier project. I would be in total support of it because this short story you wrote was decent.
Grammar was overall excellent; I didn't find any errors that stood out besides one on literally one page. Which is very impressive, like so good it makes my grammar look trashy. Overall this story was hilarious; the grave and sarcastic humor about ducks got me.
Also was the satchel duck female, is that why the male ducks wouldn{t do anything to you.

6 out of 8

This is pretty amusing! The game takes the absurd concept just seriously enough to keep it funny.

The choices could sometimes feel a little flat (Which thing in this room do you want to search first?) but the flavor text was engaging. There was a good sense of environment and the man's relation with his apartment - it felt lived in, and his quirks and concerns over his stuff made him a likeable character.

I enjoyed this and thought it was funny, yet too short for my liking. If you add some more story instead of ending it right away, I’ll certainly up my rating.
