It wasn’t long ago we introduced you to We Happy Few, an upcoming first-person survival game from Compulsion Games. Now, the development team behind the dreadfully cheery residents of Wellington Wells have made their way to Kickstarter with a goal to raise $200,000. The campaign only launched today, and hundreds of backers are already pledging their money to help support this dystopian experience. To learn more about We Happy Few, visit the Official Wiki on Gamepedia.
The Kickstarter trailer (which you can view above) takes places in the We Happy Few universe, with the uncomfortably delightful Uncle Jack interviewing the Creative Director of Compulsion Games, Guillaume Provost. They discuss the game’s setting, the challenges you’ll face as a player, and the reason why everyone in Wellington Wells is so overwhelmingly agreeable.
There are several backer-exclusive rewards for this campaign. Contributors can receive pre-alpha access, a backer t-shirt, a hardcover art book, and even the chance to create their own in-game items or characters.
You can learn more about the campaign, stretch goals, and other FAQ on the Kickstarter campaign page. You can also follow the developers on Facebook and Twitter to receive the latest game-related news.
