The "mostly text-free" point and click adventure game Dropsy by Jay Tholen is seeking funding through Kickstarter, after a successful but grossly underestimated 2011 campaign. Beyond being mostly text-free, Dropsy will be dialogue-free, using animation and detailed surroundings for communication and context clues.

A $10 pledge nets an early copy of Dropsy for Windows (and possibly Mac and Linux) before it releases in May 2014. If the rest of the world is as colorful and full of character as the carefree, hands-less titular clown appears, then just maybe this game will achieve fame beyond its 2008 Something Awful forums origins.
