It’s a game. With ducks in it.
Ouya announced today that Duck Game, a game with frenetic head-to-head combat, a smorgasbord of weapons, and yes, a dedicated button for quacking, will be hitting their console on May 13. Ouya promises the ultimate couch multiplayer experience with the game.
The game was designed by Vancouver based developer Landon Podbielski, and honestly, it feels like a combat based version of Mario Kart… with ducks. The game promises hours of replayibility via ‘tons of weapons and more than 50 different arenas to fight in,’ so it sounds like the kind of game you can enjoy during drunken parties when friends come over endlessly.
This is just another game in Ouya’s ongoing attempt to secure high profile exclusive content for its console in an effort to stimulate sales- the console has sunk at retail since its release last year, and looks to face even tougher marketplace conditions this year with the launch of Amazon’s FireTV, another Android based microconsole, but with Amazon’s formidable backing for it.
