When im in friends house she say: Hey i have Game Duck Build do you want to play? That say every time and When we play this game about 2 Hours i say: Do you want to play something like BF 3 or something like that? he say No only 10min and has been 1 Hour and i say again that and he say no only 5min then only 1 Flood He don't want to stap playing that game I LOVE TO THAT GAME BEST GAME EVER!

Hey, ive been wanting to play this game with my friend and we dont have a gamepad, is there a way to add more controls to the keyboard?

Could you devs make controls for a keyboard if you could that would be amazing.

Sure thing! Keyboard support has now been added. If there are no gamepads plugged in, the game will run in single player with the keyboard (and the button prompts will reflect the new controls).

Enjoy! :)

Played with my daughters and had a great time building rafts then drowning. Giant donuts a must to include on any raft. Fantastic concept, would love to see it expanded. It might be nice to have more time to build the raft before the flood comes.

7yo's comments: It's very fun and very funny, and when your raft just goes sweeping away from you and you fall off, that's very funny. You have to go swimming all the way back. I liked making the raft because it's cool to make a raft. The first time we played our raft was like a crate and then a branch sticking out, and then a surfboard and a little lifesaver thing and it was very funny. I wouldn't change anything about this game. I also love the art, it's a very nice style. Oh yeah, and I like that you can wave your arms up and down!

6yo's comments: The giant donuts, I sometimes actually jump on them, and then I fall off. And drown. I like the little ducks because it looks like they're in a little rain jacket.

Glad you had fun with it! Thanks for checking it out and for the great feedback - it put a big smile on my face :)
