Watch the Cyanide & Happiness: Freakpocalyse launch trailer
Freakpocalypse is set in the fictional town of Nethertonand features all the dark comedy, drama, and weirdness that fans know and love. Playing as Cooper “Coop” McCarthy, as he does normal high school things, like trying to find a prom date and doing his best to avoid getting killed by bullies, all while trying not to trigger an apocalyptic event. We can’t help but think if Coop was using a service like papercheap.co.uk for help, he wouldn’t have half the problems he faced.
This title is the first instalment in the Freakpocalypse “tragilogy”—a trilogy of games telling the complete tragic and chaotic story. For long-time fans of the franchise, Freakpocalypse is the first chance for fans to experience and interact with the universe from the beloved Cyanide & Happiness animated shorts, webcomics, and card games. And there’s no need to know the back story; Freakpocalyse gives long-time fans a lot to look forward to – including fan-favourite characters such as Ted Bear, Shark Dad, Señor Cleanfist, and more – but it’s also the perfect introduction for anyone new to the franchise.
Along with familiar Cyanide & Happiness characters, fans might recognize some familiar voices, including Arin Hanson (Game Grumps), Jessica Calvello, YMS Adum, and Rice Pirate Mick as special guest voice actors featured throughout the game. This incredibly entertaining and interactive world includes more than 100 bizarre new characters, countless objects to look at, touch, and talk to, unlockable costumes to find and wear, cinematic cutscenes, and a completely original soundtrack.
Cyanide & Happiness: Freakpocalyse is available now in French, German, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, and English on Nintendo eShop for Switch and on Steam and Epic Games Store for $19.99, with a 10% for the first week, and is rated M by ESRB. Learn more at http://www.freakpocalypse.com.
