While We Happy Few is not yet a complete game it definitely shows promise! Anyone who is willing to play a game before it’s initial release and watch it be improved over time will be in for a real treat.

MORE NEWS FROM THE WEB

We Happy Few by Compulsion Games is a game that takes place in a futuristic version of 1960s England. The game shows realistic protagonists as they try to survive in a city where everyone is one pills called “Joy” to keep them from being “downers”.  The protagonists will have to try and fit in with this society as best they can all while trying to escape the nightmare. We Happy Few is currently in the Early Access phase on Steam.

We Happy Few: Pros

We Happy Few is a very bright game. The colors of the game are just very vibrant. Considering the subject matter of the game and how it is entwined with drug use of “Joy”, the vividness makes complete sense. The creators seem to be going with the idea that “Joy” is some type of psychedelic drug which cause the users to see everything brightly despite the reality of things.

The idea behind We Happy Few is pretty creative as well. It has a few game mechanics like The Sims, in that the player has basic needs that need to be focused on to make sure the protagonist stays in tip top condition. The game is also a survival game whereas there is so many different direction they could have went with this. It could have been a shooter or a 100% action adventure game but yet the developers chose to include a specific survival element. I have never played a game quite like this. More than that I have never even heard of anything like this. With the video gaming scene flooded with multiple blatant rip-offs of other games that are made just to secure a quick buck, creative games like this are actually a breath of fresh air and always get my respect.

We Happy Few is actually a pretty good game for something in Early Access. There is not very many bugs and I have’t heard of anyone encountering any major game breaking bugs as of yet. A game in Early Access , or Alpha, still is expected to have numerous bugs to the point where the game is actually not even fun to play but frustrating. However, I’ve played games that are already at the Beta stage and literally weeks away from being released to the general public and even some of them weren’t as good as this. Not just talking about not havig bugs, but all of the things I spoke of above too.

This is just a personal thing that may not be of any importance to anyone else or sway their opinion either way. One thing I like about this game is that it is on the Unreal Engine. To me, the Unreal Engine is one of the best game engines out there and games on that engine are always gorgeous and have some pretty cool features. I don’t know what it is about the Unreal Engine that makes it have such a large amount of good games on it, but either way I’m completely sold on it.

We Happy Few: Cons

Despite this game being good, it is still important to stress that it is in Early Access! This means that the game is not complete, in fact, according to the developers it will be in this stage for six months to a year. Which means that there is no official release date in sight and of course means it is at least that long until the game can be expected to be complete. The game technically has no story mode. Of course there is descriptions of what it will be like and just by playing the game as it is now the player should be able to get an overall feel of the game. Still, that is no replacement for the actual thing.

Which brings me to the fact that this game has a pretty high price for something that is still in the alpha stage of development. The game is $29.99 right now. There’s full, completed games on Steam that are amazing and much cheaper than We Happy Few. So I would recommend people to follow the news on the game and maybe take a few days to ponder whether they actually want to buy the game right now before they actually commit to it. It is shaping up to be a pretty good game but even the developers have advised not buying the game if one is not comfortable with something still in Early Access.

  3. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  25. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  28. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  29. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  30. I was extremely pleased to find this web site. I need to to thank you for ones time just for this fantastic read!! I definitely enjoyed every part of it and I have you saved to fav to check out new stuff on your web site.

  34. na tej says:

    You were so fortunate to have had him. I feel fortunate to have spent time with him. He was the only person I’ve ever called “Daddy” ( I called my own father “R.T.”) and Mr. Wells went along with that appellation from a friend of his beloved “El.” I think of his sayings often–just the other day I was preparing for war in time of peace–something I have only recently learned to do in the context in which he meant it. A lovely, well-deserved tribute.
