Dropsy, a new game from publisher Devolver Digital, is a pixelated acid trip disguised as a point-and-click adventure. It's stars a bald, nearly toothless clown covered in thick white face paint, bright red lipstick, too-small suspenders and high-water pants, who wanders around giving people hugs and going on adventures. It's a non-linear game emphasizing exploration and bright, oozing colors. Yeah, terrifying.

In the game, Dropsy attempts to clear his name after a lethal circus fire, and during his journey he meets plenty of interesting people and animals. He speaks to everyone (including the animals) via visual icons, rather than traditional text trees. These conversations, puzzles and trinkets that Dropsy picks up along the way reveal secrets from his past -- and surely that can't be any more disturbingly cheerful than the game's new trailer. We hope. The full game is due to hit Steam (PC, Mac, Linux), Android and iOS on September 10th.
