What's New

New modes added! “Endless Encore Mode” & “Speed Run Modes” added!

Enjoy chasing high scores on the endless leaderboards? Get ready for the new “Endless Encore Mode”, a fast-paced challenge randomly composed from features of the previous Encore Chapters update.

This mode is free for all users!

An all new Speed Run menu has been added. Replay any completed story modes: Story, Epilogue or Encore and do so as quickly as possible. Be warned: the game speeds up while you speed run and if you fail you will lose momentum. Glory awaits whoever can achieve a perfect run.

Last but not least, new automagic screenshot sharing: every now and then your coolest -- possibly most frustrating! -- moments will be automatically captured ready for sharing with your favourite services: Twitter, Facebook… you name it. Spread the word on Duet.

App Description

Bonus “Endless Encore” available for all users! Challenge yourself with the newly added “Speed Runs”! Plus, new automagic screenshot sharing -- your most frustrating/coolest/emotional moments can now be shared!

Enter a mesmerising trance of co-dependence in Duet. The rules are simple: control two vessels in sync, survive against all odds and keep calm.

Selected for the Indie Showcase at PAX Aus and a finalist in both Game Design and Audio for the Freeplay Festival. This is another award-winning title from the team behind Time Surfer & Bean’s Quest. We call Duet a “Hex-like” in honour of Terry Cavanagh’s contribution to the medium of games and exploration of genres.


Tim Shiel is a composer/producer based in Melbourne. Tim is known to some as Faux Pas, the moniker under which he released a steady stream of constantly shifting electronic music for many years. He is also known for his work as a broadcaster at Melbourne independent radio station 3RRR FM, and for his recent role as multi-instrumentalist in Gotye's live band.
