We Happy Few

We Happy Few will launch for Xbox One via Game Preview and PC via Steam Early Access on July 26, developer Compulsion Games announced at the Microsoft E3 2016 press conference.

The game is set in a dystopian, 1964 England that lost World War II, where the citizens of a town called Wellington Wells take happy pills called “Joy” and live in denial of their grim existence and terrible past. Players will stop taking their Joy and become a “Downer,” and attempt to survive among them.
