Compulsion announces We Happy Few

Compulsion announces We Happy Few

Contrast developer Compulsion Games just announced a brand new project called We Happy Few. We don't know much about it yet, not even the platforms on which it will ship let alone its release date, but we're intrigued anyway to say the least. The town where the story seems to take place is quite reminiscent of Contrast's, but the atmosphere seems closer to the BioShock series. If you're curious, check out the very first video of the game.

Original concept.

The looks give me a Bioshock feel, while the weapons and masses remind me zombie games. I'll probably love it.

O man o man! It feels exactly like Bioshock the original.

I'm replaying the original BioShock now and yeah, same vibe, specially how the town people act like everything's fine and keep using "Joy", which seems very similar to Plasmids and how they made a lot of people crazy.

Also, love how the narrator, Uncle Jack, reminds me of Jack Ryan in how he seems to control them through the television. And even the name, I don't think that's just a coincidence, probably a nod from the team to BioShock.

Plus the English 60's setting and clothes reminds me a little of No One Lives Forever. Definitely a title ro keep track of.

Looks awesome, I just hope there's a little more depth to the story than Contrast

About the game

    rayy has more fun* (45 minutes ago)

    rayy @KORNdog: TW3 can't be a Skyring well done because W3 is not trying to be Skyrin. Different games and different type of RPG I think. You could say one more fun quest than the other though. (46 minutes ago)
  • crookedmind
    crookedmind ... I can't even think of what they want. Maybe expecting CoH or AoE or even a Starcraft like game, but it's not even trying to be a strategy game like that. (8 Hours ago)
  • crookedmind
    crookedmind @rayy: I think so. If I hit on something later in the game that I haven't gotten to yet I'll let you know, but so far I don't see any control flaws. (8 Hours ago)
  • crookedmind
    crookedmind If you took the sword work and handling from Witcher and put it in Skyrim, you have the ultimate game in that genre. Mods made Skyrim in my opinion; vanilla was stunted outside of stealth backstabbery (8 Hours ago)

    MikeManiac61 @GriftGFX: Both games in my eyes had spotty combat. I played W3 for its story and life. As for Skyrim, the vanilla version of the game felt bland without the mods. (10 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And I think the gameplay that is there is pretty janky and pretty shallow. (11 Hours ago)
