Duck Date is an absurd tragicomedy about one of the worst dates you can have with a duck. You play an abysmal human being from England. Her accent is a nightmare. Some reality shows beat it by a mile, but this date is pretty bad too! 

Warning: foul language, death, war crimes, time travel.

This visual novel-like experience takes about half an hour to complete.

The version with no vowels is the intended experience. Do give it a try before downloading the reemvoweled one. Reemvoweled was created by flipping a variable and no text was edited to accommodate the return of the vowels.


Made by Zhenia Puzankov @AWaywardWriter.

Additional design by Daria Kruzhinskaia.

Developed as part of the Briefs series, a gold extra project with additional support by Strange Scaffold.

Played on my steam deck, used touch controls for navigation. Very quirky and well executed sound design art and narrative, there is a consistency of everything feeling kind of jazzy, bondlike, and very vaguely unhinged. Love the way the button creeps away slowly if you cant press it, and how the narrative uses the game loop to let us give wrong answers so we can figure things out such as whether we are a duck or not. 10/10 would date the duck again. 

Thank for high praise! 


an odd game with a disjointed but somehow coherent storyline! quite an unexpected but lovely surprise with all the weird glitches and time skips and missing vowels :) thanks for the game!

Thanks for playing!


A short, wonderful game with good jokes, interface screws, and plenty of surprises. It's 30 minutes, you can make this time commitment blind, and I recommend you do. Play it, and see what it's about.


Thank you so much for playing it! I'm glad you had a good time.


Played your game. It was definitely weird, to say the least, but I actually really enjoyed it. I apologize for my big fat head being in part of the dialogue. For some reason I didn't think about that before I made the video. My bad. But if you get a chance, feel free to check it out.



My pleasure! And the head covering the lines is just the next level of alienating of the text, I'll take a note of that for the next game) Thanks for playing and recording!
