Compulsion Games announced today that We Happy Few Steam Early Access and GOG.com Games in Development. In order to celebrate this announcement, the team has also released a new trailer that can be viewed below.
We Happy Few is the tale of a plucky bunch of moderately terrible people trying to escape from a lifetime of cheerful denial in the city of Wellington Wells.
“Set in a drug-fuelled, retrofuturistic city in an alternative 1960s England, you’ll 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.”
We Happy Few is about surviving in and escaping from a procedurally generated world, where you must learn to hide in plain sight.
In the game’s Early Access version, players can fight, conform, hide, and escape the islands (although to start, we will only have access to 3/5 islands).
As the team noted:
“There is a lot of content still to be created, including more islands, encounters, NPC behaviours, gameplay features, and a proper final challenge/ending, and a large amount of work to do on balance and polish.”
