A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

The flood is coming.

Duck Build is a story-based physics puzzle game where you play as a duck who can't swim. Meet colourful characters, play with your friends, build your raft and survive the flood.

An upbeat, light-hearted physics romp in which you and your friends construct ramshackle rafts in a vivid world filled with puzzles, challenges and a cast of colourful characters.

Pull, stretch, steer, lift and throw your way to the top of the world with your grubby grabbers as you combine a whole host of wacky objects with different physical properties to boost, bounce or float your way to victory.

A game with silly physics and simple controls that anyone can play with family or friends.


Requires 1-4 gamepads for multiplayer. With no gamepads plugged in, the game is single player, and uses the keyboard.

Left stick / WSAD: Move
X / Space: Jump
Right trigger / Left Shift: Grab
Circle / E: Glue objects together
Left Trigger / F: Arms
D-pad / Numbers 1-4: Emote

AMAZING GAME! one bad thing: i wish there was different levels because the game ended very fast.

How do you connect?

this game is great. Some people aren't having fun with it. If u are having trouble, look at anyname1sfine's comments.


I'm  just going post this since apparently a lot of people are having a hard time trying to load or download the game which sucks since i Don't like the idea of this game getting bad reviews or anything  since i enjoyed it. Firstly you guys should make sure your getting the right download, If your on Windows you should download the very top one, And if your on mac you should download the middle and if on linux the bottom one. Then after downloading it you should unzip the file, You can this my Extracting it. To extract it Double left click on the application, A pop up screen should say would you like to extract the file, Agree than once done go to where it extracted it then double click the application again to play. If your on a really bad computer like you should change your graphic settings when the pop up appears from ducktastic to the lowest, Check the game and if your fine with it go 1 up. Keep doing this until your game starts to feel slow and go back down 1. This should give you a good experience with the game.

how do you down load

This game was interesting with just so many weird ways to try to stay afloat! I'd imagine it'd be fun with friends...to sabotage them of course.
