Placid Plastic Duck Simulator

From RTGame Wiki

Placid Plastic Duck Simulator is a simulator game which was first played by RTGame on November 11th, 2022.

The game simulates a swimming pool with various features and a range of different rubber ducks. The player has no impact on the game, controls are limited to camera movements.

Starting with a single standard yellow duck, a counter in the top right corner starts ticking up. As soon as the decal is filled up, a new randomly chosen duck will be added to the pool. Most ducks will move in a random direction. Over time, they will automatically interact with the features around the pool.


Stream 1

The first and to date only stream of Placid Plastic Duck Simulator took place on November 11, 2022 and lasted about 2.5 hours. Initially, the game was not supposed to be played for more than a few minutes. However, RTGame was soon deeply intrigued by both the simple concept of the game and the rising tension generated by the unforeseen behavior of the ducks. The greatest 'antagonist' was a flamingo floatie, which crept closer and closer to the pool before eventually gliding into the water - trapping some ducks in it's ring 'belly'. The game was reset one time, which caused all objects to be re-spawned on their starting positions. Over the duration of the stream, the following ducks appeared:

April Fool's Stream

Placid Plastic Duck Simulator was also played again on April 1st, 2023 as part of the April Fool's joke. During this stream, RT announced his retirement as a streamer and left his Mareep plush in charge of the broadcast. Mareep communicated via text messages on the screen and, whilst being moderately challenged by the concept of being a streamer and having to figure out how a PC works, seemed to enjoy watching the ducks.
