What Happens If You Take The Joy Pill In We Happy Few?

We decide to be a good boy and take our medicine when asked to. But what kind of game would We Happy Few be if we just took our Joy when we need to?


Compulsion Games has released We Happy Few on PC and Xbox One via each platform’s respective early access program. We already gave you a look at an hour of its gameplay, but we wondered “What would happen if we took the Joy pill during We Happy Few’s prologue?”

Well - that’s exactly what we decided to do in the following video.

During the prologue, your character come across a document that shares a bit of your backstory. Upon seeing the document, you start to have a bit of a breakdown which can only be fixed by taking a dose of Joy. While many will choose to remember this particular document, we decided to play nice and take our medicine like a good little boy.

But what kind of game would We Happy Few be if we all just took our medicine? Find out below:
