Keen followers of Compulsion Games’ drug-addled survival-RPG We Happy Few will have to wait a little longer to get their hands on the full game after it suffered a fresh delay.
The studio announced the delay to allow for further development over this past weekend via YouTube and Kickstarter which now sees We Happy Few move from a projected April 2018 release to a summer window release for PC, Xbox One and PS4.
One feature the studio felt needed further work was the beginning of Arthur’s story:”Once we finished getting the major content into the game, we reviewed how it felt when it fit together. In particular, we noticed that the game had a good pace throughout Arthur’s story, except the beginning – that was some of the first content we built a long time ago, and after refining our tools and world, it just didn’t cut it any longer,” explains producer Sam Abbot in a Kickstarter update post. “It wasn’t structured well, and we were not doing a good enough job of introducing the world (the lore behind the Wastrels, the Garden District, Arthur, and all that good stuff). We also weren’t sufficiently introducing the game’s mechanics.”
Set in the fictional town of Wellington Wells in 1960’s England, We Happy Few began life as a Kickstarter campaign before making its way onto Steam Early Access and Xbox One’s Game Preview program later last year.
