'Cyanide & Happiness' became one of the most popular and successful webcomics thanks to its particular brand of twisted humor, and 'Rapture Rejects' is a new video game that plays off of those same themes. The game is set in a post-apocalyptic Cyanide & Happiness universe, and it pits players against one another as they find creative and insane ways to "kill every other person on earth", as the game's site deftly puts it.
In terms of gameplay, Rapture Rejects is a top down isometric last man standing game. Set in the post-rapture world without God, the remaining humans have no choice but to scavenge weapons and fight it out. That might sound dreary (and indeed it is), but the game keeps to Cyanide & Happiness's humorous undertones.
