 The Story of Ugly Duckling
 Ugly duckling was borned different. Because of its differences, it was ridiculed and felt unloved.
Ugly duckling thus went on a journey in search of love and belonging.
When we hear the story of ugly duckling, it's often emphasized that the ugly duckling eventually turns into the most beautiful bird - a swan,
which gained him admirations from everyone else. In real life, the journey of finding one's identity and belongings don't necessarily reflect in looks or others' opinions.
In our version of Ugly Duckling, we want to keep the emotional core of finding one's belonging, while defying the turning beautiful narrative.
Our duckling will not change its appearance. Ever. It takes the form of a rubber duck.  
 A rubber duck was accidentally made to look different than everyone else. As it went through the factory line,
sits on the shelf of a toy store, brought to a home, and floats in the ocean, the ugly duck searches for its sense of belonging.
The story can end in any one of the scenes; as a rubber duck never grows out of its appearance,
the ugly duckling can only find its place where it feels happy about itself, despite the noises and loneliness of the world.
The scenes are built in Unity, where the player can choose to explore the interactive elements & sounds in a place, or move on to a different scene.
