So I’ve been looking for a nice relaxing and/or easy game. Placid Plastic Duck simulator is now on sale. Steam says it’s Playable, but it isn’t listed as having controller support. Does anybody have experience with this game on Deck? Does it require keyboard mapping? Is there a community layout?

Other not really game specific questions I wouldn’t mind an answer for:

  • Is there a way to check for community layouts for a game without owning it?
  • Does buying a game that doesn’t have a demo and then refunding it because its compatibility isn’t great count against me in some way? The refunds policy seems to mention something about abuse, but without a demo I have no other way of knowing.
  • Any recommendations for relaxing games that are great on Deck? Journey was okay, but didn’t capture my attention. I loved RiME.

Best wishes and thanks in advance!

    That’s the just game, it’s not any different on PC: It’s basically thing you watch passively. You can move the camera around some, but that’s it.

        That is the only way the ducks move: More spawn as you continue to “play” but you don’t make them do anything, you just sit back and watch. It’s pretty much a glorified screen saver but it is pretty chill. I think I got it for $1 on a whim and like to run it when I get stressed out at work sometimes since it’s totally passive.
