Original Post — Direct link

I feel like I’m missing a joke here due to lack of context . I absolute adore this game and this faction is funny as hell but what is the story I’m missing here ? It seems have existed before the faction didn’t

Some time ago Neo Nazis coopted clown world and clowns as a weird sort of secret nod to each other. SS13 had a Nazi community as a result.

Honk Honk/ heil honkler is code for Heil Hitler.

Barotrauma then introduced clowns to their game, after it had been established there was a neo Nazi community involved with the clowns.

The devs have never addressed this despite this l being established before the development of this game which I find telling. I usually get downvoted for bringing this up but it's f**king real.

Without going into the origins of the SS13 clown as that is far from my area of expertise, I would now like to be the dev that addresses this for the purposes of Barotrauma: clowns are not Nazis in disguise and the Honkmother is not associated with Hitler (and neither are we). You may quote me saying this, too. I realise I'm probably just biting the hand that trolls here, but I feel like this is important to address: The clowns and the mother of honks are there because they are funny and as homage to Space Station 13, Barotrauma's spiritual ancestor, nothing more and nothing less.

As for trolling our subreddit with jokes in this vein: please don't, it's not actually funny.
