A GAME OF PARANOIA AND SURVIVAL IN A DRUGGED-OUT, DYSTOPIAN ENGLISH CITY
Discover the retrofuturistic city’s dark history as you play through the intertwined narratives of three quietly rebellious citizens of Wellington Wells. Each has their own strengths and weaknesses; they face their pasts, prepare for the future, and engage in activities that aren’t exactly status quo in this artificially-enthused society.
Set in retrofuturistic 1960s England, you will find a city ravaged by war and rebuilt by delusionally happy people. Everything appears joyful in Wellington Wells, including its roads, its people, and its omnipresent television personality: Uncle Jack! But, it’s actually a world on the brink of collapse. Come unveil its dark history, and discover how and why its residents came to be so beguilingly happy.
Play as three flawed characters who must contend with their own guilty pasts and connections to the mysteries surrounding Wellington Wells. Each has a unique storyline in which they interpret and react to the dramatic events around them. Hide, conform, or fight back as each of them encounters black comedy and dangerous hope as they try to make their way out of their city. Or play in Sandbox mode, and experience dozens of encounters with your very offbeat — and very English — fellow Wellies.
In We Happy Few, no two playthroughs are alike. While the citizens of Wellington Wells will always want to ensure that you’ve taken your Joy, the procedurally generated world will ensure that your experience with We Happy Few is different and unique. Wellington Wells is never quite like you remember it.
