Cyanide & Happiness – Freakpocalypse: Part 1 Coming to Nintendo Switch as Timed Exclusive

Cyanide & Happiness – Freakpocalypse: Part 1, from webcomic publisher Explosm, was announced during the Nintendo Indie World Showcase.

Players take on the role of “weird, unpopular, and ginger-headed orphan” Coop McCarthy, who is constantly bullied and unloved. Coop will have to survive high school, explore his hometown, and discover what kind of threat warrants being called a “Freakpocalypse” before it’s too late.

You can find the rundown of the game (via Nintendo) below.

Taking place in the Cyanide & Happiness universe, you play as a weird, unpopular, ginger-headed orphan, and it’s time to save the world.

As Coop “Go Away, Weirdo” McCarthy, all you want to do is make the world a better place. The trouble is: Nobody likes you, school sucks, you can’t find a prom date, everybody bullies you (including your teachers), and your attempts to help only makes things worse. Will you escape high school alive? Who will love you? Why is this game called Freakpocalypse? Find the answers to these questions and more by looking at, talking to, and touching everything within the Cyanide & Happiness universe.

Cyanide & Happiness: Freakpocalypse: Part 1 will release Summer 2020 as a timed console exclusive on the Nintendo Switch.
