You may have heard of philosophers such as Socrates, Aristotle, and Plato, but it’s easy to mistake the concept of philosophy as some ancient way of thinking. It is not. By definition, we are all in a sense, a philosopher. Every day of our lives we study the fundamental nature of knowledge, reality, and existence through our experiences.
The truth is, we all enjoy thinking about it. “Reality” TV, Game of Thrones, and The Walking Dead are just a few examples of how we enjoy becoming a part of a different world and try to imagine what life would be like in that world. We insert our current philosophies into them and extract the truths we feel to be most realistic to us.
This will play a large role in the narrative of Star Duck. The universe where the story takes place has no religion or philosophy as we know it. As you play through the game, I hope to challenge your perspective on life – no bias one way or the other. Are these “ideas” inevitable and will they always exist in some form?
Embark on a philosophical journey through the experience of Star Duck!
