You know who works REALLY hard in Killer Klowns from Outer Space: The Game? Besides the devs? The Klowns. Every once in a while a good Klown needs some assistance - and that’s where Lackeys come in. After all, how can you properly attempt a global alien invasion without some faithful minions? But who are these mysterious beings?
Lackeys are a class of Klowns with a face only a mother could love. Throughout the match, they will spawn outside the Klowns’ spaceship, across the map. And no, you can’t play as one, those folks are controlled by the AI. If you’re a Human, you might encounter them patrolling the streets of Crescent Cove and guarding some areas; and if you do, keep quiet: these little buggers are attracted to sound.
If you can’t help lumbering around, knocking into stuff, slamming doors and opening windows, you can bet that they’re gonna detect that. And that’s when YOU’LL detect them crushing your spine. Once they leap onto your back to hold you still, other Killer Klowns can easily subdue you into delicious cotton candy cocoons - unless you fight for your life. How can the Klowns find you? The lackeys release a burst of rainbow confetti to alert the nearest Klown. Who doesn’t love a party! Just look at them go.
They are industrious little helpers and even clean up after the Klowns, because when the bodies hit the floor, someone has to tidy that sidewalk – that’s when the Lackeys come in to grab freshly created cocoons and deliver them to the spaceship. Of course, it’s not all altruistic. As more and more cocoons are collected, Lackey spawning opportunities increase so you better bop them in the nose while you can!
No matter which side you play on, when you get into the game, don’t forget the little guys working behind-the-scenes to make the invasion successful. Shout-out to the Lackeys!
