The game went through several up phases in its interesting development.
We Happy Few is an interesting game set in an Orwellian society where people must always be happy at all times with the assistance of mind altering drugs despite the world that crumbles around them. But in many ways, the story behind the game is as interesting as the game itself as an upcoming documentary will show.
You can see a trailer for the upcoming documentary below. The documentary, The Cost of Joy, will show behind the scenes footage of the game’s development which will see various stages of the game in progress and will also highlight how the game transformed due to the unexpected reaction to the game’s narrative based trailer at a Xbox conference, despite the fact that no narrative aspects were planned at that time. It since went through several big shifts since that point.
The Cost of Joy will release December 19th. We Happy Few is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
