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% or $10 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 through Game Preview / Early Access.
- 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.
Following a delay, We Happy Few is now scheduled to be fully released on August 10, 2018.
