If you’re a fan of video games it will be very difficult for you to look at a game like We Happy Few from Compulsion Games and not want to dive in immediately, unless you’ve seen it of course, in which case you’re likely already itching to get your hands on it.
Set in 1960s England, the game tosses you into an insane world described as “a drug-fuelled, retrofuturistic city in an alternative 1960s England.” And it looks exactly like you would picture those words looking. It’s A Clockwork Orange on an intense psychedelic drug trip. It’s A Clockwork Orange‘s nightmares after said drug trip. It’s pretty wild looking.
A new trailer for the game has been released for Gamescom 2015, where it was announced that it would be coming to Xbox One. You can read more about the game and check that trailer out, along with a gameplay demo from earlier if you’ve never seen it in action, below.
I’m Afraid We’ve Come
to the End of Our Time
We Happy Few is the tale of a plucky bunch of moderately terrible people trying to escape from a lifetime of cheerful denial. 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.
Currently announced for Xbox One, Windows, Mac and Linux, We Happy Few will be released in 2016.
