Here’s an overview of the game, via Gearbox Publishing:

Enter the world of Wellington Wells, a quaint English town where the inhabitants are always cheerful thanks to “Joy”, a literal happy pill. Follow the storylines of three moderately terrible people as they try to fight, sneak, or talk their way out of Wellington Wells.

  • Explore the World of Wellington Wells – Take a stroll through the Village of Hamlyn, or intrepidly explore several as-of-yet undiscovered locations–just don’t stray too far into the Garden District. The Joy-allergic Wastrels live there, and you don’t want to associate with them, do you?
  • A Dystopia of Your Own Making – The retrofuturistic, psychedelic world of Wellington Wells is procedurally generated, meaning that you’ll never have the same experience twice!
  • A Day in the Life – Step into the shoes of three distinct “Wellies”, and play through their storylines to discover the complex history of the town and its inhabitants.
