The US-based indie games publisher and game developer Krispy Animation today announced with great joy and excitement that their clown-themed retro exploration/adventure game “Clown in a House” is now available for PC via Steam for 6.59 Euros.
Explore a mysterious home as a clown in this new retro-inspired game by Kris Patrick of CatGhost fame.
Featuring SNES-like graphics and a captivating music score by Billy Cobb, Clown in a House dares you to venture deeper and deeper into the bowels of the home – meeting its strange inhabitants and discovering over 1,000 different interactions along the way. Can you unlock all 19 endings and uncover the home’s many other secrets? Only one way to find out …
HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS
But before we continue, a word of warning: As you explore the home, you might find yourself filled with a complex mix of emotions. Some things might seem familiar to you – and some things may not. If you open your mind (and your heart), you may discover that you and the clown have quite a lot in common! Maybe you two have made similar mistakes – or experienced similar joys. Maybe someday you’ll look back and realize the clown has visited your home.
… or you might just be playing a silly little game …
“After CatGhost, I found myself ready to take on a more traditional narrative – so I began work on Puzzle Party, a game that explores the idea of a creator that obsesses over a lost love. However, I felt that the traditional ‘three act play’ style of writing wasn’t working for me. So I returned to my original approach. The result is Clown in a House, a project that I am extremely proud of.”
