Today, during the Indie World of Nintendo, Kris Wilson of Explosm Entertainment announced that the first part of his next adventure game, _cyanure and happiness: Freakpocalypse, _ will come out this summer on Nintendo Switch, as well as on Steam.
Explosm Entertainment launched a Kickstarter for the game on September 5, 2017 and reached its full finance three days later. The game has been under development since, with new features added as funding increases.
FreakPocalypse is an episodic point-and-clic adventure game taking place in the cyanid and happiness universe, and will bring together the characters and stories of comics and videos in one place to tell a new story. This time, the game focuses on a high school student named coop after a bizarre accident causes Apocalypse. The game is written by the same team writing cyanide and happiness and should have the same extreme and hilarious humor as the one presented in the videos and comics.
During the development of the game, the Explosm team tried to remain faithful to the classic adventures of pointing-clicking as the secret of the island at the Singes_ while injecting the expected humor of a cyanide and happiness title. For screenwriters, move from comics to video in a game was a natural progression.
“Going to a new medium gives us more ways to make dark and bizarre humor that we tend to write and allows us to tamper your legs and try something new and interesting,” said Kris In an interview with Blockhead Gaming at Pax East 2018. “It’s a good support with what we are already doing with our animations.” Explosm team members are enthusiastic about the release of the game and look forward to developing more games and possibly embarking on the video game industry in the future.
