Dropsy: A Surreal Exploration Based Adventure Game

Post by TRoss »

Hi everyone,

I'm a longtime lurker and finaly decided to post something. :) I recently backed a Kickstarter project to fund an adventure point-and-click game named Dropsy by Jay Tholen. Though its roots are in the point-and-click games of old, Dropsy will be an almost entirely text-free experience. There are colorful characters to communicate with, but the dialogue is handled visually (via icons) rather than linguistically. Oh, and the music is absolutely brilliant. Jay Tholen borrows from almost every relevant genre of the past 70 years, so the music evokes memories of an old Soundblaster card or FM Synthesizer, fuzzed out guitars, organs, tape echo, 70's drum machines, vintage keyboards...

I posted this because I thought some of you would find it interesting. I certainly did. :)
Here's a link to the Kickstarter page:

Cheers,
Tom
