To call Dropsy a weird game would be a profound understatement—it's bizarre in the extreme. After a suspicious circus fire, Dropsy the clown embarks on a quest to clear his name and get some hugs. This game really emphasizes the hugs. It's a classic point-and-click game, but it's unlike anything I've seen before.

Dropsy is an open world game, allowing you to explore the story in whatever way you like. There are puzzles to solve, people to meet, and secrets to uncover. Interestingly, you don't actually talk to anyone in the game. All interactions are represented by visual icons and body language. Of course, the graphics are a big part of the appeal here. Dropsy has a pixel-art aesthetic, but the design is really distinct from other retro-themed games.


The price is steep at $9.99, but that's the same you'll pay for the same game on Steam. Dropsy works on regular Android devices as well as Android TV boxes. It was previously offered in a Humble Bundle, but it's only now in the Play Store. In fact, it's still listed as "unreleased," but the page is live for everyone.
