Set in an alternate 1960’s England, the highly anticipated survival game We Happy Few takes you to the Joy-filled town of Wellington Wells, where all is not as it seems.
Currently available in early access as a preview title, the game has you playing as Arthur Hastings, a man whose job it is to redact stories from newspapers. As it stands now, the game only allows you to play through Arthur’s prologue, meaning that you will be unable to progress story-wise beyond this point. The rest of the game will be continually updated until its full release, which promises an additional two playable characters complete with their own unique storylines.
As Arthur, upon seeing an article of yourself and your brother, you begin to remember your past, and question whether or not you should take your Joy. Joy is a pill that residents of Wellington Wells take that allows them to become oblivious to anything bad or negative in life. If you choose to take your Joy, Arthur will state that “happiness is a choice” and the game will end, with life merrily continuing on as per usual.
