‘We Happy Few’ Game Details
A game born from Kickstarter, We Happy Few is an upcoming survival game full to the brim with paranoia, in a drugged-out, dystopian English city in 1964 created by Compulsion Games. We Happy Few is a survival roguelike, where you must learn to hide in plain sight among the joy-happy citizens of Wellington Wells.
It’s the tale of a plucky bunch of moderately terrible people trying to escape from a lifetime of cheerful denial. You will have to blend in with its other inhabitants who are kept under control with a drug called Joy and don’t take kindly to people who don’t abide by their not-so-normal rules. The player takes the role of a “Downer,” a person who refrains from taking Joy. The Downers comprise an underground resistance movement that is trying to escape from Wellington Wells.
Whilst not specifically placed in the horror genre, It has a sinister feel and creepy edge which we think you will enjoy.
The art style reminds me of Dishonored, the stretched figures in a cartoon washed out world that Tim Burton would be proud of.
Currently announced for Xbox One, Windows, Mac and Linux, We Happy Few will be released in June 2016. However, you will be able to join the fun before then, by joining on Microsoft Game Preview / Steam Early Access in early 2016.
