Duck Life is the first game in the series, released in 2009. It follows your adventures racing a duck for money, competing in training to make the duck stronger.
The Game starts off with your farm getting destroyed by tornado. All that survived was a single duck egg and you decide to train to make it a racing duck so you can get money to rebuild your farm.
