Great work Eden, Tallin and Curtis! This is a really interesting and promising beta. I look forward to the addition of more places to explore and hopefully more interactive elements.
FYI, I think I may have found a bug (though I wasn't sure if it was definitively a bug or not). Either way it's not a major problem. When you use the duck effect and then embark on the boat, the sprite which is used for traversing the ocean becomes the character with the duck on their head rather than the boat itself.
