Dropsy the Clown Now Available on PC, Mac, and Linux!
Developers Tendershoot and A Jolly Corpse have just released their “point and click hugventure” Dropsy the Clown on PC, Mac, and Linux!
During the quest to clear his name and revoke his urban legend status following a deadly circus fire, Dropsy will encounter a peculiar cast of folk to communicate with through visual icons rather than traditional text dialog trees. Through these rudimentary conversations, Dropsy takes players on a journey of self-discovery with a story that harnesses powerful themes of love and redemption – Dropsy the character is an outsider, and longs for a place among the people inhabiting his world. Along his adventure, players will find answers to geographically based puzzles, unravel dark and shameful secrets, and collect fancy items to stuff in his elastic waistband for use along the way. Oh, and Dropsy can also talk to animals but you should know that by now. Come on.
Dropsy is now available on Steam, Humble, and GOG with 10% off the standard price during the first week of launch, and Dropsy’s biggest fans can also purchase the Warm Damp Hug Edition that includes the game, its incredible official soundtrack “the Dreamworld EP”, and the Dropsy Book of Secrets digital book for £14.99 / $19.99. Dropsy will also release on iOS and Android later this year.
If you’re not quite sold yet, then you may want to check out this recently released launch trailer (with sing-a-long for the kids):
