We Happy Few
We Happy Few is an upcoming first-person urban/societal survival roguelike game from Compulsion Games. It is a tale of a plucky bunch of moderately terrible people trying to escape from a lifetime of cheerful denial. Set in a drug-fuelled, retro-futuristic city in an alternative 1960s England, players will have to blend in with its other inhabitants, who don’t take kindly to people who don’t abide by their not-so-normal rules.
The game is set in a dystopian alternate 1960s England, where the face-painted inhabitants of the fictional town of Wellington Wells are kept under control with a drug called Joy.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. However, the town’s citizens do not take kindly to Downers, so players have to act like they are high on Joy in order to blend in. They must scavenge for food and supplies as they try to survive in this procedurally generated world
Our playable characters are not typical video game heroes – they are flawed and not particularly heroic, warped by the trauma their world has been through. Each character has its own storyline, reacting to the events of the world around them, and their place within it. Our stories are definitely not appropriate for children, but are laced with dark humour, hope, and even a spot of redemption.
