We Happy Few is a survival horror game developed by indie studio Compulsion Games and published by Gearbox. Taking place in a dystopian, retrofuturistic 1960s England, the game puts the player into the shoes of three “moderately terrible” people who seek to escape the fictional town of Wellington Wells and its perpetually drugged-out and cheerful inhabitants.
While originally intended as a small, Kickstarter-funded title, the game has since then grown in scope, and will now be getting a worldwide release digitally and through retail channels. The standard version will cost the usual $59.99, but pre-order customers will be getting $10 off that price – more on that after the jump.
Pre-order We Happy Few from participating retailers or digitally to get a 15% discount as well as the Jolly Brolly parasol weapon. There also are some additional bonuses if you pre-purchase digitally:
- Xbox & Steam: get instant access to the game’s alpha version.
- PSN: We Happy Few Dynamic Theme.
Those who already own the Steam Early Access or Xbox Game Preview version, as well as Tier 1 Kickstarter Backers, will receive the standard version and the Jolly Brolly weapon for free.
The Deluxe Edition of We Happy Few costs $79.99 ($67.99 after pre-order discount) and bundles the base game with a Season Pass. The Pass grants access to three future adventures that will follow the antics of one of Wellington Wells’ most notorious residents. Tier 2 through 9 Kickstarter Backers will receive this version for free.
Last but not least is the $149.99 Collector’s Set, which comes with a number of physical goodies (do take note that the game itself is not included and will have to be purchased separately):
- Collector’s Box
- Uncle Jack Alarm Clock
- Bobby Mask Replica
- Game Handbook
- Plexiglass Sign Lamp “You Look Smashing”
- Soundtrack Vinyl
- Sticker Set
- Propaganda Posters
Tier 10 and higher Kickstarter Backers will receive the set as well as the aforementioned Deluxe Edition.
We Happy Few is scheduled to be fully released on April 13, 2018.
