Madness Redeemer is the second part of the Madness Combat series by Krinkels. It was submitted on January 15, 2003. It was an immediate success and Krinkels has gone on to produce many more parts to the series. Redeemer establishes many of the ideas and characters that made the Madness world what it is, including Tricky, the Improbability Drive and the body count.
Plot Summary[edit | edit source]
The first part of the series to identify its location as "Somewhere in Nevada"; also marks the first appearance of the sheriff and the clown (named Tricky in a later episode, but named "Bonzo" in Madness Interactive), who returns in the later animations. Hank sneaks into the sheriff's department and chases after him, running into many, many guards along the way. In the end, he reaches the sheriff and has him at gunpoint when Jesus shoots him in the back of the head. The episode ends with a caption reading, "Moral: Don't try to shoot the sheriff."
