Melancholy, humour and horror, December 2, 2020
by Stian
Related reviews: ectocomp 2020

The most realistic story I have encountered in Ectocomp, Duck Diary is all the more scary for it. Dealing with anxiety and trauma, the protagonist finds comfort in a rubber duck that keeps them company through baths and through dreams. As a choice IF, it does not appear to be properly branching. Rather, the choices affect only the next screen. As such, you get one narrative, but with some variations in the details. The writing is of course the essence here, and itís positively superb, mixing the realistic melancholy with touches of comforting humour provided by your rubbery friend, and a gradually unveiling horror that builds up as the story unfolds.

When pulling on the door doesn't 'cut it'. A delightfully shameless, unforgivable one-room tribute to the games of Andy Phillips.

It's not the end of the world, and you're to blame. Better get on that. But man, it sure would be nice to get a bite to eat first.
