The Rubber Ducky – The Longest Journey
The infamous rubber ducky is a key character in The Longest Journey…mostly because of the horrible struggle you need to go through to progress with it. You need to retrieve a key from an electrified subway track by gathering a clamp, a clothesline, a rubber ducky – which has to be punctured by throwing breadcrumbs at it to attract sea-gulls (and don’t worry, those damn sea-gulls will come up again later), inflate it again, fit the clamp in, deflate the duck and finally get the key. A gold ring was involved somewhere. We don’t care and neither should you.
