Background: Cyanide & Happiness - Freakpocalypse is a love letter from Explosm to the games they grew up with; inspired by classic point-and-click adventure games, the team behind the webcomic sought to bring back that experience while giving fans a chance to interact with the characters and universe they love. Built on the same casually dark humor found in the comics, expect a rollercoaster of chaos that's just another day in the world of Cyanide & Happiness, all while trying to make it to prom alive! Estimated Play Time: ~10 hours Embargo: Launch date announcement & teaser trailer for release immediately. Please withhold releasing official reviews, playthroughs, and streams until March 11th, 2021. Media Opportunities: We are conducting exclusive media interviews. Please reach out to [email protected] if you’d like to schedule a meeting/interview/private digital demo of the game, we’d be happy to make it happen.
