We Happy Few is story is set in an alternative post-World War II timeline. The game takes place in a downtrodden, retrofuturstic, and drug controlled society. To escape the ugliness of the war, the people have become addicted to the drug “Joy” — a substance that leaves citizens happy and totally obedient to all commands. Players will play as one of three protagonists hoping to escape their hallucinogenic reality and find out the truth.

The title saw an Early Access release via Steam and earned lots of positive player reports. Our own preview of We Happy Few gave it a solid 8/10. The upcoming April 2018 release will include the full game, new missions, and extra content. The game will also have a Collector’s Edition that includes bonuses like a guide, a mask replica, and the soundtrack on vinyl to name a few. 

Fans of survival horror games and or mystery titles can look forward to We Happy Few early next year.
