The player controls a Downer, or someone who chooses not to take Joy. In Wellington Wells, Downers are not only frowned upon, but actively attacked if spotted and identified, and forced to ingest Joy until they are one of the many again. The Downer's goal is to escape the city by finding a hatchway that leads out, while avoiding suspicion from Joy-crazed citizens and obtaining food and water to survive.

The game is scheduled to release on July 26th for Xbox One with a release for Windows, Linux and Mac and Playstation 4 later this year.
