Compulsion Games has announced that the indie survival horror game We Happy Few is now available on Steam Early Access, GOG Games in Development and Xbox One Preview.
The game revolves around a person in a dystopian retrofuturistic-fashioned world where everyone is controlled by a personality-altering pill called 'Joy". The protagonist, Arthur Hastings, works as a 'redactor', a government censor similar to the Ministry of Truth, erasing unhappy stories from newspapers and records.
The primary objective of the game is to escape the town of Wellington Wells. The game does save progress on checkpoints, but if the player dies or is captured, the player must start a new game. The layout of the town is not fixed but procedurally generated every time a new game is started. The town is divided into districts, each of which has its own look and customs.
