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


What's up?
  • Tinks
    Tinks I didn't understand why he played so poorly either though. Subasic has been amazing the rest of the tourney. A big reason they won against Denmark and Russia (7 Hours ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks @MrWhite: I agree. Penalty like that shouldn't happen in a WC final. Croatia's keeper was screened for almost all of those goals, aside from the deflection (7 Hours ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus @Melmoth: oh god, that is amazing. the sounds and visuals are insane for a sim. (8 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @droezelke: For both them? Mbapp was 20 odd yards out. His positioning was shite. Should never have let that one past him. (8 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke If FIFA didn't object so long to get a VAR, the concept could have been bug-fixed 10 years ago. (9 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Tinks: The VAR is an exvellent tool, but the rules applied to the VAR are restricting them from intervening. Also, the hands-rule is so ill defined that it's completely open to interpretation. (9 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke Then the shot came and as he tried to correct to the right, he was leaning on the wrong leg and went out of balance. (9 Hours ago)
