Wait a second... how'd that happen?
Abilities and Weapons
First off, let’s talk about the weapons.

There are three unlockable weapons to choose from in the game.

The charge shot adds the ability to… well… charge up your normal attack! It is a great source of single-target damage that you can “weave” into your normal attacks.

The spread shot splits your shot into three weaker projectiles. It is a reliable attack to use when you want to cover multiple areas with a specific angle.

The missile barrage continuously fires a sporadic stream of weak attacks in a general direction. It’s not the most accurate attack, but it is the go-to choice when you’re unable to line up a direct shot and need to attack while on the move.

Next up, the abilities.

There are a total of ten different abilities to choose from. These are unlocked by redeeming a token of insight, which you receive from reaching milestones within the game (ex: defeating a boss for the first time).

While you can swap abilities that you have unlocked at any given time during gameplay, you can only have one ability active at any one time, and must wait for the respective cooldown on your ability to finish before using any other that you swap to.

Let’s break these down into three categories: utility, defensive, and offensive.

Utility Abilities:

  • Teleport – instantly teleport a far distance in the direction that you are facing
  • Double Damage – temporarily double all of your damage dealt
  • Ghost Pepper – temporarily enhance your stool with acidic power, which leaves a damage over time effect on anyone that you hit

  • Haste – significantly increase your movement speed, acceleration and deceleration for a limited time

Defensive Abilities:

  • Shield Orb – grants you immunity from all sources of damage while active

  • First Aid – passively regenerate any lost health over time
  • Guardian Angel – upon taking damage that would normally kill you, you are instead saved and restored to full health

    Offensive Abilities:
  • Pewpximity Mines – launch a mine which detonates when an enemy is within a specific proximity of it

  • Diarrhea Beam – unleash a beam of stool which deals continuous damage to all enemies within it

  • Dooklear Explosion – cover the entire screen in an explosion of stool, instantly killing any weak enemies

Some of these may sound much more useful than others, but again it’s important to keep in mind synergy, as well as the fact that all of these abilities have different cooldown lengths associated with them.

That’s it for this update. Thanks again for all your support thus far, please keep spreading the word about the campaign!

Release date: 2018

Captain Quack: I Pity the Stool combines the gameplay of point & click adventures/puzzlers with arcade shooters.

You play as Cornelius Quack, a duck who's friends and family have been killed through pollution by the uprising of civilization and industry around him and his beloved park. Now he is out on a quest for justice, in the form of raining down a storm of stool upon all that cross his path.

In short: You're a duck. You poop on people.

Current Features:

- Help Quack on his stool-fueled expedition across five diverse areas of the world: The Parklands, Sun Nova Beach, Bona Fide Countryside, Synchrono City, and Sludge Works Inc.
- Over 25 unique levels/encounters
- Various attacks and abilities to achieve (detailed in the announcements)
- Hidden costumes and hovercrafts for Quack to unlock
- Secret areas to discover, each with their own set of encounters and bosses
- Perfect your speed and accuracy as you fight for high scores
- Dumb micro mini-games derived from my favorite NES classics
- All original music inspired by the wonderful soundtracks of Mario, Kirby, Sonic, Blaster Master, Mega Man, and more


"In the end, Captain Quack: I Pity the Stool is quite amusing and addictive, not to mention challenging every now and again." - Alexandru Dulcianu (Softpedia)

This game deserves my support. Simple gameplay but really fun. The enemies were very nice, as well as the voices too. I voted yes and I look forward to the release of the game, because I know I will laugh a lot with opponents who will come during the game. :steamhappy:
