Publisher Devolver Digital has announced that point-and-click adventure game Dropsy will be heading to the Switch very soon on September 29th.
Original released on Windows, OS X, and Linux back in 2015, Dropsy is an "open-world" point-and-click title that stars Dropsy the Clown as the titular character in a story that "harnesses themes of love and unmerited kindness". Players are free to explore the world in whichever order they see fit, piecing together bits of the narrative along the way.
Here's a list of features from the game's Steam page:
- Open World Adventure – Players are free to choose which avenues of adventure they want to explore in an open world setting and can piece many of the puzzles and story bits together however they choose.
- Text Free Experience – Communicate with a bizarre and colorful cast of characters through an innovative use of visual icons rather than traditional text-based dialog trees.
- Puzzles and Hugs – 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.
- Evocative Soundtrack – From gentle electric piano and saxophone melodies of the starting area, to the space echo drenched dub reggae tracks of a vampire-hunting swamp village, to the bombastic fuzzed out quasi-prog-rock of the endgame sequences, Chris Schlarb and his band of minstrels give every area in the game a distinct sense of place.
