Perhaps following in the footsteps of South Park, which is getting its second game soon titled Fractured But Whole, it looks like the long-standing comic series, Cyanide & Happiness is making a RPG of its own.
To do this, they are seeking the assistance of the fans via Kickstarter. They promise “The Cyanide & Happiness Adventure Game will complete the gaping hole in your soul, heal the feels in your heart, and wash your dishes.” The campaign has already hit its target and it still has over two weeks to go.
Cyanide & Happiness will be made in the popular point-and-click adventure style, with comedic writing on par with the comics. The story will go as follows:
“The game will be a new approach to point-and-click adventures filled dark comedy, drama, weirdness, and an apocalypse in the suburbs. This is the first time we’re making something set in the unified C&H [Cyanide & Happiness] universe, so we’re completely excited to be making this for you!
Our hero on the left is Coop, whose only goals are to make it through school without becoming “the weird” kid and to avoid the apocalypse.
He will fail at both.
He’ll be joined by Sawyer, an aspiring investigative journalist with a know-it-all streak and Chowder, a man who wants only to be left alone to write comments on YouTube. He’s that kind of person.”
The more Cyanide & Happiness gets funded, the more options will be implemented in the game. Either way, the humor and premise is definitely promising for fans. You can check out the teaser below, which sets the comedic tone for Cyanide & Happiness and has some great nods to popular games.
Given the current funding, it looks like it will only be on PC. So get pledging if you want a console release!
