BioShock-esque title, We Happy Few, needs your money soon

1 min read


Back in September the lovely minds behind the not so lovely Contrast revealed their next bash at a creepy, atmospheric title. We Happy Few seems to mash together elements of BioShock and first-person survival games, all set in an eerie English setting that has more fake smiles than pints of warm beer. Since then, the game has been silent – but it’s going to need your money soon.

Developers Compulsion Games will be launching a Kickstarter for We Happy Few in just under two weeks, meaning you can throw all the money you desire at their faces to get the project done. It does also mean we’ll probably get a lot more information about the game, pertaining to gameplay, story and perhaps a release window. Platforms and such would be pretty neat too.

It is curious though that a Kickstarter is only being launched for the game nearly four months after the initial reveal. It could very well be that Compulsion has struggled to find a publisher – especially after Contrast didn’t hit all the right critical ticks at launch. Or it could just be another way to market the game more – a method with a lot of established developers are using to gain media traction lately.

Regardless of that, the game does look really intriguing – and screams emphatically at the BioShock fanboy within me. If you’ve already forgotten what We Happy Few looks like, check out the original announcement trailer below. I’m crossing my fingers that not much has changed since then.

  1. They’ll get my money. Contrast was one of my favourite games I played last year.

        Get it! Game play is average really, but the art direction & story are fantastic.

          I’m all for the art and story. Last year really was an incredible year when it comes to games with deep story and rich visuals and audio. I have so many good memories of these incredibly dark and powerful stories.

    “never pre-order games because you dont know what you’re getting, its a waste of money.”

    “this kickstarter is for a game with literally one video out that tells us pretty much nothing. lets give them money for a game you’ll still need to buy afterwards.”
