Pub­lisher/ de­vel­oper Com­pul­sion Games For­mat PC Ori­gin Canada Re­lease TBA

Com­pul­sion’s fol­low-up to PS4 launch ti­tle Con­trast is built around an­other ex­cel­lent con­cept. Set in a pro­ce­du­rally gen­er­ated, dystopian take on 1960s Eng­land, WeHap­pyFew casts the player as a rare lu­cid mind in a city whose eerily china-masked pop­u­lace is be­ing con­trolled by a drug in the wa­ter sup­ply. Stealth is para­mount, but of the so­cial kind – you’re bet­ter off blend­ing in with the crowd than stick­ing to the shad­ows – and you’ll craft weapons for when things in­evitably go south. Creepy but colour­ful and drip­ping with at­mos­phere, WeHap­pyFew is surely too in­trigu­ing to stay a PC ex­clu­sive for long.
