Video games have always been a great way to escape into another world that is more crazy than yours; or, depending on your life, just as crazy. Over the last few years, Cyanide & Happiness changed the medium for their message but kept its comedy the same.

From web comics to animated shorts to the card game Joking Hazzard, Cyanide & Happiness have done so much.  Now, their latest venture is The Cyanide & Happiness Adventure Game.

The game strives to put you into the universe of Cyanide & Happiness as you interact with all of its characters. The game is initially going to be released for PC but may make its way onto consoles depending on if it reaches its stretch goals or not.

The game has a retro feel to it from point and click games of the past, with a South Park feel of being dropped into an established universe and interacting with characters. It’s clear that the creators are passionate about their work, and that passion translates into everything they produce. Fans are clearly excited about this with the goal already surpassed. Clearly it is just a matter of how many stretch goals will be reached now. If you see any rewards you like, better act fast as several are limited and already gone.

Recommendation: Backing at the $55 level or more will allow you to be a part of the game itself.
