More about We Happy Few,

We Happy Few is the tale of a plucky bunch of slightly terrible people trying to escape from a lifetime of cheerful delusion. Set in a drug-fuelled, retro-futuristic city in an alternative history 1964 England, you’ll have to blend in with its other citizens, who don’t take kindly to people who don’t abide by their not-so-normal rules.

Main Features

  • A procedurally generated world: Each time you die or beat the game, your next adventure through Wellington Wells will be different. Forget about relying on the city’s layout to escape!
  • A sophisticated suspicion system: The inhabitants of Wellington Wells expect you to behave in very specific ways—if they suspect you’re not taking your Joy, they’ll quickly identify you as a Downer.
  • Frenzied combat: Downers aren’t very popular in Wellington Wells. In fact, Wellies tend to get a bit violent whenever one walks by.
  • Twisted survival mechanics: In this urban setting, avoiding the Wellies’ fury often means hiding in plain sight.
  • An elaborate crafting system: Salvage supplies and Joy-tainted food to stay alive, but be careful not to overdose!

Below is a video showing off 15 minutes of Pre-Alpha Gameplay.
