Family Guide: Goose Goose Duck (PEGI 7)

Here's everything you need to know about the popular online social deduction game, Goose Goose Duck.

Goose Goose Duck is a strategic communication game where you work with your fellow geese while completing missions. While you do, try and spot the malicious mallards who have infiltrated your team to stop you. Then, after the task, you get to vote out players that the group thinks are suspicious. It seems like a copy of Among Us, however, its enhancements and twists (increased player count, more roles, overhearing players talking if you're near them) have earned it a popular following in its own right.

While the general spot-the-traitor play persists throughout, there is a range of modes that change up that challenge. This game also offers more variety in roles than Crewmate (Goose) and Imposter (Duck).

Age Rating

Rated PEGI 7 for Mild violence. Users interact and in-game purchases. The game is depicted in cartoon style and the characters are all animals rather than people. 

Multiplayer survival game in which players take on the roles of ducks and geese who must complete missions aboard a spacecraft, while working out which member of the team has infiltrated the crew and will do anything to stop you.

This game features mild violence. When cartoon ducks and geese are stabbed, their head disappears and is replaced with an undetailed stump and a bone sticking out. There is a small amount of blood on the ground. However, the visuals are cartoon-like.

It's an online game where you interact with other players. It includes built-in proximity chat which means that you can hear other players when they are near you. You can mute other players but this does give you a disadvantage in the game. You can opt for Censored Chat which removes certain words. This only affects text chat and not voice chat. You can also opt to press a button for other people to hear you.

These items are cosmetic but still are desirable by players for a sign of their prestige in the game.
