We Happy Few is a new disturbing tale from the makers of Contrast

We Happy Few is a new game from Compulsion Studios that sees players in an alternate 1960s England, where everybody is happy... or else!


Compulsion Games, best known for last year's Contrast, is already hard at work on their next game. It's an unusual and disturbing adventure that will go by the title We Happy Few.

The first teaser trailer takes players into a strange alternate version of 1960s England where all of its citizens wander around with permanently painted-on happy expressions. However, the main character is trying to escape this Twilight Zone-style existence and seeks to escape, only to find that the town's denizens are not nearly as nice as they appear to be.

Check out the first teaser for We Happy Few below. Look for more information about this game to surface next weekend during PAX East.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
