Looking for something different to play? We've got just what the doctor ordered – a dystopian tale! Compulsion Games' We Happy Few is an action-adventure game that takes players to the mid-1960s in an alternate version of life after World War II. Players control one of three characters each looking to escape the terrifying dystopia of Wellington Wells, plagued by a hallucinogenic drug that keeps all its inhabitants easily manipulated and docile, while their world is falling apart.
The first piece of We Happy Few DLC, Roger & James in They Came from Below, is officially available today! That means you can travel back into the weird world of Wellington Worlds and jump back into the oddities that await you.
They Came From Below finds NPCs James and Roger returning in a new story. James and Roger are romantic partners and assistants to Dr. Faraday, an important scientist in the town of Wellington Wells. They were intriguing characters for players during the main campaign, and return in the DLC for more hijinks – this time, involving robots.
The duo must take on a robotic uprising that's befallen Wellington wells. As Roger and boyfriend James, you've got to find Dr. Faraday while exploring a massive underground laboratory. Track down the robot invaders plaguing the city, too – before they claim more victims and make an even bigger mess.
