We Happy Few Hits Kickstarter

By  | 

Smile!

If this announcement trailer is anything to be believed, We Happy Few is shaping up to be a creepy and mysterious adventure from Compulsion games:

The game is live on Kickstarter now, and the page promises a haunting procedurally generated world:

“It’s a first-person game, set in a procedurally generated, fully 3D city that you must escape before society collapses around you. But, like any good roguelike, you’re probably going to die a few times before you figure out how it all works.

You will need to learn how to conform and avoid suspicion. You will need to hunt for supplies, and craft the devices and weapons that enable you to make it out of town alive. What do the Wellies approve of you doing? What makes them suspicious? What turns them into a homicidal mob? And is there anyone here who can help you?

Welcome, my friends. It’s another fabulous day in Wellington Wells.”

As a special treat, the Kickstarter page features 15 minutes of pre-alpha gameplay footage, which you can watch here:

The game melds survival with adventure in a terrifyingly suspenseful environment–you have a hunger and thirst meter, and you’ll run into dangerous residents of the village who take more than a few punches before going down. It evokes some of the same exploration elements as Bioshock, in that you can search through any container and loot it for important items. There’s a crafting menu as well. As of now, there are three playable unlikely heroes that you can unlock with repeated play.

We Happy Few will come to PC first, consoles second (though the developer hasn’t specified which), with possible Mac and Linux ports if certain stretch goals are met.

Will you back We Happy Few? Let us know in the comments.

  • / Hi there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could locate a captcha plugin for my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having trouble finding one? Thanks a lot!

  • Buen partido, limpio sin brusquedades, el San José ganó tres importantes puntos, que dan pie a pensar que la salvación es posible. Felicidades a Héctor que trabaja a destajo y a los pibes que están con el a muerte.Para tí Rosa un saludo , eres única.VAMOS SAN JOSÉ

  • not so sure China or Russia would come to Iran’s aid if the US attacks. IMO I think the cabal is connected to US, China and Russia and has been playing the global strings for some time.I think the US is being set up for a fall. Hitting Iran will be very ugly. I would not be surprised if some are hoping for a nuclear war.

  • Ã…h jag älskar den vanliga almanackan, stjärnkarta, solens upp och nedgÃ¥ng, mÃ¥nens faser , kyrkoÃ¥rets texter mer komplett än sÃ¥ blir det inte, och snygg är den ocksÃ¥!

  • Thank you for another fantastic posting. Where else could anyone get that kind of information in such a perfect way of writing? I have a speech next week, and I was looking for more info

  • hihi… banyak banget adzan2 yang ga valid loh… contoh bulan kemaren sering banget masih terang dah adzan magrib… opo kui jenenge? mabok kepayang to?wes mendingan adzan dewe neng kamar… wahahaha….

  • Ich mag das Lied! Kannte ich noch nicht… hab gestern auch Gottschalk laufen lassen, aber nur, weil ich den "Rücktritt" (dachte ich mir zumindest) live miterleben wollte. Und Peter Alexanders Tod hat mich auch betroffen gemacht… ein Stück Kindheit mit Oma.

  • Dienekes, Albanians have 75% of mutation Delta F508, the same if not more than Northern Europeans (Greeks and Italians have less than 60%) Google it and see what it may mean.

  • Det ska bli jättekul att se dina alster. De blir sÃ¥ fräcka. :)Denna var jätteläcker! Och det blev en extra touch att linjerna frÃ¥n boken är med. 🙂

  • I did make some of my presents this year, but no knitty ones. I’m still quite a slow (and selfish) knitter so it would have taken too long. Plus I really feel that only friends who will truly appreciate handknitted presents should get them.

  • I agree about Diamond White. But Emblem3 is probably going to stay because of the ‘boy-band’ edge. I hope Fifth Harmony stays. Cece has had too many chances, she needs to leave.

  • Congrats! We’ve all been looking forward to your arrival, along with other new additions. I’ll be around at least through the fall semester as I wrap up my thesis, so I’m sure I’ll see you in the hallways!

  • Thank you for your detailed review. I would definitely follow your advice and try first the homeopathy remedies. This trigeminal neuralgia is a whole disaster: in the moments if pain attack you are like switched of the life. And you never know when the pain comes back again and you are afraid of it every minute.

  • Exactly wat Nest said..If your trying to shut down whats bad in the Rap game.. Start shuttin down 98% of the Southern Rappers… 50 is a decent rapper..With catchy songs… and excellent choruses.. at least he has that.. What do southern rappers have?…. -_-

  • Pareil pour les produits Lush, l’odeur est agressive je trouve.Dès que je rentre dans un magasin ca me pique les yeux. Pourtant le concept est pas mal à la base, le savon à la coupe ce genre de chose.Je prends note pour les mascaras YSL, moi qui était tentée pourtant -effet YSL je pense aussi-

  • That is really fascinating, You are a very skilled blogger. I’ve joined your rss feed and sit up for in search of extra of your fantastic post. Additionally, I have shared your web site in my social networks
