With just a few days to its release, the compulsion games product We Happy Few is turning heads around with the unorthodox style of developing set by its developers. A trailer, overviewing the mentally deranged scenes of the game, was recently released and can be seen below
The game, which was originally announced back in the August of 2017, is surely a different one. In this psycho-thriller title, Wellington Wills is the town at focus where Happiness is the forced habit everyone must adopt and conform to. Set in the old days, back in 1960s England, the sane inhabitants have to escape the grasp of the drug induced lost causes, lost in the false pretence of reality itself. The ironic play on with words, the trailer focuses on the antagonists of this game. It shows their psychotic behaviour as they forcefully bring back the “joy” in a person who is a “downer”. This is done so to maintain the conforming behaviour, like that of the rest of the town.
On the game’s official websites, the game is described to have these features in store, “Discover the retrofuturistic city’s dark history as you play through the intertwined narratives of three quietly rebellious citizens of Wellington Wells. Each has their own strengths and weaknesses; they face their pasts, prepare for the future, and engage in activities that aren’t exactly status quo in this artificially-enthused society.”
The game is available for pre-order today for the PS4, Xbox One and PC, via Steam (for the latter). Upon pre-ordering the title, players are set to receive a 15% discount on the final Purchase. A “Jolly Brolly Weapon” is also bundled with the pack.
