‘We got a downer!’
Compulsion Games’ We Happy Few was demoed live on the Xbox E3 stage today, and it still looks really great. It has this dark, dystopian, drug-addled vibe about it — a place that world that seems like an uncomfortable joy to be immersed in. The video hasn’t been uploaded yet, but there’s a fantastic pinata scene that’s worth watching.
The subtle news out of the presentation is that We Happy Few is slightly delayed. It was set for a June 2016 release, but we got word that an Xbox game preview is coming on July 26. Also, it’s “first to console” then, meaning that a simultaneous PC launch is very likely. We’ll surely hear more about this one in the near future.
