Well, I'm no longer afraid of Dropsy the clown


I am scared of whatever that was at 0:35

Dropsy is a well-intentioned, upbeat clown who happens to be utterly terrifying. He's misunderstood!

Given my fear of grotesque clowns, I've kept my distance, but curiosity got the better of me here. I clicked the trailer. It's trippy -- in a good way! -- and Dropsy is just so bouncy that I can't stay afraid of him. You should watch it, too. You'll never read his name quite the same way.

Devolver Digital and developer Jay Tholen have settled on a September 10, 2015 release for Dropsy on Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, and iOS. Seriously, though, what is that at 0:35?
