Basic Gameplay Tips (No Spoilers)

This is a relaxing game, the best tip I can give you is to just enjoy your time with the ducks. Everything will unlock with time, if not then there are achievement guides on here. I will not be posting one of those.

Got issues with the game settings?

High Performance

  • Fullscreen, knock your socks off without V-Sync too. FPS will be lots and lots.

Med Performance

  • Fullscreen, V-Sync enabled to “Every V Blank”. FPS will be capped.

Low Performance

  • WIndowed Mode – Set this to something smaller than your screen resolution.

Example: Your screen resolution is 1920×1080 so use 1600×900 as the window size.

V-Sync enable to “Every Second V Blank”, This should set to half of your screens refresh rate.
