Independent developer Jay Tholen and noted balloon artists Devolver Digital have announced the point and click hugventure Dropsy – the heartwarming tale of a horrifying, adorable clown and his journey of self-discovery – will finally deliver a warm, damp hug to Nintendo Switch owners today!
Originally released in 2015, Dropsy is a non-traditional take on the classic point and click adventure starring a perpetually carefree clown as he explores a richly detailed world full of colourful characters and sinister secrets, doling out hugs along the way.
Rather than lead players on a singular narrative path, Dropsy’s open world format leaves them free to choose which avenues of adventure they want to explore, piecing the puzzles and story together in any order. This newly updated version features an additional questline and freshly squeezed hug puzzles on both Switch & PC.
During the quest to clear his name after a deadly circus fire, Dropsy will encounter a peculiar cast of characters to communicate with via his unique emoji-based expressions. Challenging puzzles and complex conundrums stand between Dropsy and the secrets behind his shrouded past. With clever thinking, tender hugs, and the help of his animal friends, Dropsy can overcome evil and win the hearts of the people around him.
