Mother Ducker.

Ok, another video game project.

This one … doesn’t look great, but let’s give it the benefit of the doubt.

So, tell me about it!

Mother Duck_02
I don’t think you know what any of those words mean.

  • It really doesn’t look like a “platformer game” (which I assume is what he means.)
  • If you wanted to be generous you call call these images “Scenes”, but you could not, by any stretch of the imagination, call them “3d”.
  • Most “infants” I know aren’t really into PC gaming.
  • “Adventure game” … well, I suppose it’s a game that could, in some fashion, incorporate an adventure. Sort of. You know what? Let’s just give them this one.

What’s this “Adventure” anyway?

Look, pal. If I want a “Suspension experience” I’ll go to an auto-parts store.

Also, why Mother Teresa? Just because she’s also a “Mother”? Or is there some underlying Catholic message to the game? Who knows!

Which game would you play?

“Mother Duck”

    That description is amazingly punctuated, it starts out with too many commas, but then just descends into a giant run-on sentence.

    I’m confused by the parenthesis in this sentence: ‘It really doesn’t look like a “platformer game” (which I assume is what he means.)’ Platform game is a perfectly standard term for a platformer. Take a look at the wikipedia page, for example:

    (The rest if pretty funny though.)

      Huh! You’re right.

      I’ve always seen them referred to as “platformers”.

      Rest assured that I am suitably ashamed for being ignorant of this.

      • garic gymro

        It *might* be a British/US difference, of course.

        • KickFailure

          Oh good. I’m going to go with that explanation.

          At first I thought I was getting old and out of touch!

    You didn’t even mention that Mother Duck’s companions were Mother Hen and Mother Goose. It’s like a huge mother party. And Mother Duck goes to fight her nemesis, who that? Mother Ostrich?

    OMG Mixed-Up Mother Goose came with the first computer my family got, a Tandy with no hard drive. Also King’s Quest II and Space Quest I. SIERRA FOR LIFE! 😀

    The world has come a long way. I remember Baby Einstein videos but apparently infants nowadays are into video games about fighting aliens, getting betrayed and going to prison. Hardcore stuff.
