Re: Dropsy, That Clown Game ~ Incredibly Late DevLog

I wrote a long reply but it got eaten by the fact I got logged out. bleh. But suffice it to say, I am both sorry for your financial troubles and also relate to them. certain recent events have led us to need a new source of funding, and we've never sold a game that made any money, so it's rough out...

Re: Dropsy, That Clown Game ~ Incredibly Late DevLog

still need help? I'm here now XD

The dog sniffs at 'points of interest' and those generally don't go away once you've solved a puzzle (though they probably should) - so sometimes it can look like a red herring. If he's barking, there's a STRONG hint going on.

Re: Dropsy, That Clown Game ~ Incredibly Late DevLog

I added a few more mouse/bird zones. I had planned on adding to the dreamworld, but we had to do a few things to make the ~real world~ stronger. Hint stuff for puzzles, mostly. We're 1.5 days out from release and there are still a few art assets on my list I need to finish.. I just got my half of th...

Re: Dropsy, That Clown Game ~ Incredibly Late DevLog

Ya link it wherever! It's fun! The composer is Chris Schlarb. He made the soundtrack around my notes before any of the actual game was even implemented. I gave him reference pictures and ideas for the feel of each of the areas, and he composed around that. He then got a sweet lil' band together who ...

Re: Dropsy, That Clown Game ~ Incredibly Late DevLog

All of that stuff is already in, so it wouldn't be any new programming, just scripting and art. I just want to add MORE of it. :) No real risk of messing stuff up tho. The lore for the game has been in development since late 2011. There was always a vague storyline and a few specific things I wanted...

Re: Dropsy, That Clown Game ~ Incredibly Late DevLog

I wouldn't mind Dropsy mods and stuff. Even if he's presented as creepy (and he does LOOK creepy), it's still a bunch of work someone put into something as a homage. Also, if anyone actually plays the game longer than 20-30 minutes, they'll likely pick up on how innocent he is.

maybe bosses in the form of other cars that are jerks and try to ram you off of the road? if yer avoiding the deer, they could try to ram you into their path. if you're trying to hit deer, they could hog them and ram you out of their path. etc etc. or a motorcycle gang. or just like a big leopard or...

Re: Dropsy, That Clown Game ~ Incredibly Late DevLog

That is really neat to think about. I wanna make some small things after this behemoth is complete, so I'm gonna putz around with that concept I think. It would be fun to realize only after you're 3 sections into the game that your performance is changing things in the next bit. Perhaps something yo...

Re: Dropsy, That Clown Game ~ Incredibly Late DevLog

Thanks for posting this! I really want to play the game when it comes out! I kind of had a similar discussion with a few people about how I wasn't sure if the developer (this was before you posted here!) was trying to do what brandon described or to be more youtuber "this is so crazy lol!"...

Re: Dropsy, That Clown Game ~ Incredibly Late DevLog

Your assessment is quite correct. You probably have been tainted. If not from reading about the game, then probably in the way you think about video games. I guess I can't blame anyone for assuming that a Devolver-published game featuring a grotesque clown isn't going to have a horribly dark underbe...

Dropsy, That Clown Game ~ Incredibly Late DevLog

I often have blog-worthy musings, but I'm too lazy to reset my Tumblr password, so I'm going to post them here. We've got about 2 weeks left until release, which is September 10. Super exciting crazy no-sleep work zone happening right now. Game is not (and will never be) content complete, because I ...

Here's a pretty sweet collection of DOS game music recorded directly from a SB16. Been way into the ol' OPL sounds quite a bit lately.

Here's a playlist I slapped together of more old FM-ish game music.

Hi, I'm Jay! I'm currently living in rural Florida (Northwest Germany soon though!) while working on an adventure game about a clown called Dropsy. As much as game dev and pixel art are my 'things' - I have much more fun playing with synthesis and pedals and all kinds of other sound stuff. Not much ...
