So the fourth "friend" I unlocked looks like a modern Donald Duck in a purple suit wearing headphones listening to something dubstep'ish. Is this really another indie dev character ? and if so what game does he come from ?

EDIT: rescued a second one with a red suit and figured out what they are. Pretty good easter egg, had actually been noticing the name every time I launched the game but didn't quite make the connection right away.

I think that's the Hyperduck which is a reference to the sound and music company that did work on the game. I don't know if there's a game related to the duck.

I just unlocked this too. It reminds me of Howard the Duck, but holy shit that would be nuts to have him in this game.

@peritus:

The 2 ducks obvisouly represent the 2 sound dudes from Hyperduck soundworks, their names appear in the end credit. The other 10 are Tim from Braid, Gomez from Fez, Kid from Bastion, the Maw from The Maw(the only Twisted Pixel game is ported to PC), Meat Boy and Bandage Girl from Super Meat Boy, the Dishwasher and Yuki from The Dishwasher: Vampire's Smile(the only XBLA exclusive here and now, which is Nov,2013), default player character and default damsel from Spelunky. All are from XBLA titles.

@peritus:

Remeber that one chamber with the tornado dragging Dust in and only have sound effect when Dust moves, that's when the Braid dude was held, a red head dude in a suit.
