We Happy Few coming today

One of the most interesting games shown at the recent E3 in the City of Angels was We Happy Few from Compulsion Games.

Set in a 1960s dystopian England, 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. 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. If you act out of turn, or you’re not on Joy (the local happy pills), the locals will become suspicious and will rapidly turn your frown upside down! Forcefully. You will need to practice conformity, stealth and combat if you want to survive long enough to escape. “

From what we have seen so far, We Happy Few is a tonally unique experience and we can’t wait to get our hands on it. But we won’t have to wait long. Developer Compulsion Games has taken to Twitter to confirm it’ll be hitting the store (as part of the Game Preview programme) at 9am Eastern Daylight Time. That’s 2pm British Summer Time, fact fans.

You can grab We Happy Few – or just a demo – from the Xbox Store as soon as it launches on Game Preview.

Update: We Happy Few is now live, at 2 pm BST as promised!
