A blend of inspiration from the Bioshock series and 1960's England, We Happy Few is a procedurally generated first-person survival game set in a dystopian 1960s alternate England, in the fictional town of Wellington Wells.
The face-painted citizens of Wellington Wells are kept under control using a drug called Joy. The player takes the role of a "Downer", a person who refrains from taking Joy. The Downers are an underground resistance movement that are attempting to escape from Wellington Wells.
The town's citizens do not take kindly to "Downers" and players will have to act like they are high on Joy to blend in. They will have to scavenge for food and supplies as they try to survive and ultimately escape Wellington Wells.
We Happy Few is looking to be an exciting and promising title. With an intriguing and colourful setting, crazy characters and beautiful graphics powered by the Unreal 4 engine there is not much to dislike. Without a doubt, it is one of the more unusual and unique titles so far scheduled for release in 2016.
