  1. Hi everyone, We are excited to announce that Lightbearer, our second DLC is now live on Xbox One, PS4, Steam and GOG! In this second piece of handcrafted Season Pass content, you play as Wellington Wells’ most beloved rock star, Nick Lightbearer, in a brand-new story! Heartthrob, artist, and personal trainwreck Nick Lightbearer is adored by legions of fans—until disaster strikes when a Nick-centric fan convention is plagued by a string of murders. When all signs point to him as the killer, how will he reconcile the disturbing overlap between his own blackouts and the killings? It also features a brand new song from Murray Lightburn (The Make Believes, The Dears) “I Have Seen Everything”. This DLC is available for all Season Pass holders (also in the Deluxe edition of We Happy Few) or as a standalone. You can purchase the Season Pass on the platform of your choice here: Xbox One, Steam, PlayStation4 (Americas), PlayStation4 (Europe), GOG. Cheers, Compulsion Games
  2. Hi everyone, We are happy to announce that update 1.8 is now live on Xbox One, PS4, Steam and GOG! We are aware of a specific issue that was specifically affecting PS4 users where there was a chance of the game crashing upon arriving in the Parade District, this issue has now been fixed with this update. Patch Summary This patch contains performance optimizations, crash fixes, fixes for progression blockers, fixes for gameplay and UI bugs, and localization fixes. Most importantly, this patch includes a significant improvement to the memory used in the game, fixing crashes and bugs that were happening in the Parade District on all platforms but especially on PS4. General Bugs/Stability • Fixed a crash that was happening when the player would greet another character while they had equipped pickup. • Fixed out of memory crash that would occur on certain world seeds in the Parade District. • Fixed "Busy" warning message when trying to either "Quit" or "Return to the main menu" while in an area of the game where it is not possible to save. “Cannot save” text now clarifies that saving is disabled in these areas. • Fixed a bug where characters could get stuck inside NPCs when shoving them in a corner and crouching inside them when they get up. • Fixed UI message prompts when quitting a DLC game that were misleading, as it appeared to the player that progress had not been saved. • Fixed Game Settings: Lighting no longer restores to "medium" upon restarting game. • Fixed heavy flickering when selecting a DLC icon with the mouse and changing the selection with the keyboard. • Fixed pressing Back and Confirm simultaneously in the Arcade or DLC menus led to a story menu that has no background. • Fixed the absence of background image or music on game details page on function screen. • Fixed some settings reverting to their default value after restarting the game. • Fixed subtitles being truncated with certain settings. • Fixed when choosing the "Revert Changes" option in the HUD option menu, the joy HUD icon was set to off by default.

We are preparing a small hotfix with the intent of fixing this issue next week.

  5. We're sorry to hear that you're experiencing this issue. This is a known issue that can occur rarely for some users on certain worldseeds. We understand it is very frustrating. The PS4 version of We Happy Few contains some issues we are having a tougher time containing, compared to other platforms. This depends on the world seed you get when starting a new game. Since the game is procedural, it is a question of luck. However, we are making progress and are still fixing bugs for our next update, 1.8. One of the changes involves toning down the graphics in the Parade District which should prevent a memory crash, at the cost of a less polished district. We are working on a patch which should hopefully fix the issue you are having. Something you can try which has worked for some other users is to clear your PS4 game cache: 1 - Turn off your Playstation 4, do not enter rest mode. 2 - Once the indicator light on the Playstation has stopped blinking and is completely off, unplug the power cord from the console. 3 - Wait 30 seconds. 4 - Plug the power cord back into the Playstation and start it up again as normal. 5 - Load your last save and attempt to continue Arthur's story. Cheers,
  6. My bad, I read "worked on Bioshock". Yes we played Bioshock but none of us worked on it.
  7. Thank you for this kind message, we really appreciate it! ❤️ If you have any art questions, feel free to message us, our artists will gladly help.
  8. Hi, We are happy to announce that our very first DLC, They Came from Below is now out on all platforms! James & Roger return in an all-new We Happy Few story.

This DLC is available for all Season Pass holders (also in the Deluxe edition of We Happy Few) or as a standalone. You can purchase the Season Pass on the platform of your choice here: Xbox One (Play Anywhere), Steam, PlayStation4 (Americas), PlayStation4 (Europe). Cheers, Compulsion Games

  10.

It also includes infrastructure to handle the upcoming DLC, and general performance optimizations, crash fixes, fixes for progression blockers, fixes for gameplay bugs, and localization fixes. New Features • Survival mode Added. Survival mode is a return to the Early Access survival experience. It has had all story elements removed, and is a mostly systemic mode. The mode includes tiles from the story mode that have had story elements removed, new areas and tiles, new onboarding, and a scoring system added. • Night’s Watch mode Added. Night’s Watch is the opportunity to play as one of the wellies - or in this case, Constable Constable. You’ll have to hunt Downers throughout the night to make sure the streets are safe for the citizens of Wellington Wells in the morning, and includes a new enemy to fight. • Sandbox mode Added. Sandbox mode allows you to tweak and change the procedural general system We Happy Few uses, with sometimes unpredictable results. Options that might result in unusual visual features or weird AI issues are marked with warnings, so use those settings at your own discretion. Basically, this is a mode to mess around in, and cheat/have fun as you’d like. • Added game type indication to save game info when loading games. • Added DLC menu. General Bugs/Stability • Fixed a crash on consoles when loading a save game inside the Doctor HQ in Arthur’s playthrough. This should unblock progression for anyone whose saved games were consistently crashing in this location. • Fixed rare crash/infinite loading issues. • UI fixes. • Fixed issues with patrols/navmesh failing, causing NPCs to be in unusual places. • Fixed issues with NPCs teleporting/attaching directly to you during combat. • You can now equip a single gas mask when multiple are owned. • Rarely, Doctors' saw weapons had collision and could make characters bounce erratically when both come in contact. • Bobbies wearing gas mask are no longer immune to caltrops. That was quite silly. • Added missing prompt to unlock a water pump if character has a lockpick already crafted in their inventory. • Climbing onto the televisions in the streets no longer causes the camera to spin wildly. • Opening the map no longer causes the current quest map marker to persist after the quest is completed. • Player can no longer slip into areas when metal shutters open for NPCs (could break quests). • Rain should no longer show up in the interior of the joy factory. • Reloading the initial auto save will now correctly unlock the recipes for the Jolliest Brolly and Not So Jolly Brolly. • Entering a shop at the same time as night comes causes no longer causes the player to be trapped inside. • Spankers inside Wellie houses can no longer hit the player through walls and closed doors (tiny collision missing in the door frame). • Bodies you are carrying will no longer disappear if there are too many corpses nearby. • The term "non-lethal kills" in the statistics menu was dumb and now is less dumb (“takedowns”). • Subtitle/language fixes (including several Britishims fixed). • Localization fixes (including Arthur’s final cutscene - now translated correctly). • Fixed various stuck spots/locations where you could access areas inappropriately (causing issues). • Many small fixes, like animation skips, clipping art, etc. Collectibles/Achievements • Collecting a memory mask while the player character is talking will no longer result in the VO of the mask not playing. • Broadcasts: Uncle Jack shows will now unlock in all cases when listening and looking at wall protruding screens in the Village. • Fixed an issue with the “Gimme Shelter” achievement caused by failing the "A Model Citizen" quest. • Fixed an issue with the “Cat Burglar” achievement, where getting hit while picking up a fake cat statue could cause it to disappear. • Fixed an issue with the “Arthur Haste-ings achievement” caused by consuming a random obsolete phlash pill that could be found in an obscure location. Using any phlash pill should now unlock this achievement. Encounter Fixes • NPCs should no longer clip into the ground near the Rubble Pile at the Water Pumps. • Removed unobtainable chest in the middle of a watch tower in the military camp. • Fixed some save incompatibility issues and other blockers for players using saves from version 1.5 or earlier. • Fixed rare/obscure/conditional quest blocking issues with the Church of Simon Says, the Cult of Jack, Hallucinogenic Salad, Haworth Labs, Plough Boy's Lunch, Possibly Heinous Package / Superb Meat Boy, Really Bad Gas, Speaker’s Corner, Cathouse, Rorke’s Drift Bridge, Home Cooking/Connect the Dots, Duck Soup, Plassey Bridge, Military Camp, Manned Flight, So Foul and Faraday. • Ed Macmillan can no longer be lost. If you drop him, and he despawns, he’ll reappear at the point where you picked him up. • Arthur - Alabaster Bobby in Haworth Labs will no longer find an adjacent room more interesting that the room he should be in (allowing him to be fought in all cases). • Arthur - Edie Goes Downer: Loading in a game with the encounter/quest completed, no longer causes Arthur to repeat his quest completion dialog. • Arthur - English Vice: Reform Club NPC barks are no longer persistent after leaving the level. • Arthur - Future Perfect: Fixed incomplete video during "The House Of The Future" video with Jack. • Arthur - Letter Of Transit: Fixed narrative inconsistency with Arthur mentioning cod liver oil before he knows he needs it. • Arthur - Ravensholm - The Scottish Play: Ollie's model now behaves correctly with lighting during the cutscene. • Arthur - The English Vice: Using the shock baton "Tickler" no longer causes the NPCs in the Reform Club to teleport. • Arthur - The Great Stink: Fixed issue that could cause the worker keycard not to be available when needed.

Over 1000 bug fixes and optimization improvements in total.
  11. Hi everyone, We Happy Few 1.7, including the new Arcade Mode, will be coming to all platforms on Monday March 25th! In the distant past, during our Kickstarter campaign in 2015, we promised that we would build additional modes for We Happy Few - at the time, loosely titled Sandbox and Wellie Mode - and we have been working on what this would look like since launch. Today we are excited to finally present you: Arcade Mode! Arcade Mode is a free game update for We Happy Few which contains not two, but three new modes that will showcase a different part of the We Happy Few experience: Survival, Night’s Watch and Sandbox. Survival Survival is a return to the Early Access survival experience. As its name suggests, Survival mode is all about surviving in a harsh and unforgiving world, and is designed for those of you who enjoyed the survival experience in the past. You will need to hunt for food, water and shelter, and you’ll need to use all of the stealth, crafting, and combat skills at your disposal to last as long as you can in Wellington Wells. Scoring is based on survival time but to keep things mysterious and exciting, there is also a way to escape the island. Night’s Watch Have you ever wondered how it would feel to give a jolly good thrashing to those pesky Downers? In Night’s Watch (formally called Wellie Mode), we bring to life one of the most requested characters by the community, allowing you to play as the most notorious Bobby, Constable Constable. As a constable, and a man of high duty, you’ll need to keep all the filthy Downers out of town through fast paced combat while making sure you do not run out of Joy. Each night will become increasingly harder as hordes of Downers start pouring around town. Upgrade your weapons, take your Joy and keep the streets Downer free! All with a great big smile on your face. Sandbox Sandbox is a non-narrative/non-goal based game mode, which allows you to experiment with our world generation systems and gameplay options. This isn’t a skill based mode rather than a calmer experience, designed for players who want the freedom to create their own version Wellington Wells. So, if you’d like to pile 50 corpses in a bathtub, or see a very unusual procedurally generated world, this might be for you. With a whole arsenal of cheats at your disposal, chaos in this mode knows no bounds. Update 1.7 and other stuff Update 1.7 will drop on Monday March 25th for Steam, UWP, PS4 and Xbox One. Along with Arcade Mode, Update 1.7 will contain an array of bug fixes and improvements for We Happy Few. Along with these additions and fixes, Update 1.7 also includes the infrastructure (eg the menu option) that we need to deliver the Season Pass DLC. We're very close now to talking more about the first DLC. Stay tuned for more info soon! Finally, we have just about fulfilled the last of our Kickstarter requirements. With Arcade Mode coming out, we’ve completed all our project stretch goals! We’re just about finished with the final physical rewards, including the final parts of the collector’s box. Thank you all for your patience. Patch notes to come. Compulsion Games
  12. Hi, We gave an update on the DLCs in January but we haven't communicated yet on the release dates as we're hard at work on it, but we'll do that as soon as we can, so stay tuned! http://compulsiongames.com/en/news/186/new-year-update-xbox-one-patch-announcement-and-dlc-news! Thanks for your patience.
  13. Since we are close to patch 1.7 and Sandbox, we might be skipping 1.6 and go straight to 1.7 on PS4! However, we do not have an ETA yet.
  14. Hey Laki, We are currently working on it. It will contain a bunch of PC specific fixes, that's why it's taking longer. Once we have more concrete info, we will let you know.
  15. We’re excited to announce that We Happy Few is now available on Xbox Game Pass! If you’re an Xbox Game Pass subscriber you can download the game here. If you’re a new Xbox One player of We Happy Few and have any questions about the game, feel free to take a look at our forum or send a ticket to our support team here.

  17. Hi everyone, After a much needed holiday break, we are officially back in the studio and ready to start a brand new chapter! From all of us at the studio, we wish you a happy new year. Big things are coming this year, including the DLCs. We are happy to say that things are going well and that we’ll start sharing specific news very soon. Let’s say that we hope you enjoyed the wacky side of We Happy Few. However, in more immediate news, the team has also been working on patches and updates for the main game. Console and PC versions of We Happy Few operate differently, each with their own set of specific bugs to address. Lately we have been working on Xbox One specific issues, as we received a great deal of feedback about it specifically. Today we are releasing update 1.6 on Xbox One! These fixes will be coming for other platforms as soon as they are ready, along with their own platform specific fixes (including linux). If you are curious about what the update will be, this patch contains a new save game system (so you have more than 3 save slots available), some small combat improvements, performance optimizations, crash fixes, fixes for progression blockers, fixes for gameplay bugs, and localization fixes. Here are the patch notes for update 1.6. Otherwise, many of you have asked about the progress on the DLCs. We’re still a small team and are doing these DLCs ourselves. What this means is that we proceed through pre production on each update with a small team, then go into production with the full team when it’s ready - and this can take time. We want to get these right, and we very much appreciate everyone’s patience. This is where each update is currently at: Sandbox is in the final stages of tweaking and QA, and will be the next major patch after 1.6 (1.7, probably). We’ll be talking about these game modes shortly, as they will provide different experiences to what you currently see in Wellington Wells. They Came From Below is mostly content complete, and we’re currently reviewing/polishing up what we’ve built in production. Lightbearer is full steam ahead in production. We All Fall Down is in pre-production. As usual, if you have any questions about anything, let us know and we’ll be more than happy to respond. Thank you, Compulsion Games

  19. Hi everyone, It’s been a while since we last wrote a blog post - we’ve been hard at work on patching, DLC and figuring out what we’re doing next. But, the end of the year is here and 2018 being such a pivotal year for Compulsion Games, we couldn’t disappear into holiday break without a bit of a recap. As everybody knows by now, this year we were brought into the Microsoft family as a first party studio! This is the biggest thing to ever happen to us, and quite frankly, we couldn’t be more excited for the future and all the possibilities it holds. We already wrote quite a bit about it so if you are interested in it, you can head here to read the blog post. And then on August 10, after 4.5 years of tears, sweat and love, we finally launched We Happy Few. To say that We Happy Few had an unconventional development cycle would be an understatement - we started with 5 people (2014), showed the game a year into development (2015), Kickstarter (2015), Early Access (2016), publishing (2017) and finally launched this year. We’ve shared quite a lot of the behind the scenes of our development throughout the years through weekly updates, and we are always happy to talk about it with you. We think it’s important to explain and give nuances about what happens during game development, so feel free to keep asking us. Being a Game Preview/Early Access title means that throughout the years the game kept evolving and improving thanks to the community’s continuous feedback. At launch, a lot of you kept that mindset and reached out to help us narrow down the most harrowing issues and for this we are really grateful, we have since we released 4 updates and are currently working on the 5th one which will contain our most fixes yet. Doing open development on a narrative game was quite intricate, during Early Access most people were unhappy thinking we had no story but as you now know, we were just careful with it as to not reveal any spoilers. After we launched the game, we received a tremendous amount of comments about the story which made it all worth it. We are so glad that you enjoyed the story. Future plans Once we launched the game, the programming team stayed on the main game to polish it and release updates while the rest of the team went into small groups to work on the DLCs. The team has been hard at work on them for the past few months, which is why we have been quiet about it, but we won’t remain quiet forever. Maybe even Weekly Journals might make a return, like we used to. We do have some remaining Kickstarter promises to fulfil. These include sandbox mode, and Mac and Linux versions. We currently have a running Linux version that will be available for testing in the new year. We are also looking for development partners for the Mac version, as we are not Mac specialists. We understand this is taking longer than anticipated and we appreciate the patience with this; having a more solid core game (particularly on the optimization side) was critical before getting to work on these two versions. Sandbox is coming to the end of its development, and we’ll be sharing what this is soon. We are also super excited about the coming Season Pass content, as this is an opportunity for the team to have fun and run wild with crazy ideas, while also celebrating some of the fan’s favorite characters from the main game. We hope you’re going to love them. But, now that the holidays are upon us, we are going to take a little break to recharge our batteries after quite an extraordinary year. We are just as excited about stuffing our faces and play the amazing games on the market right now as we are about the future, and are looking forward to starting fresh again in 2019. To all of you who have been part of our community, we want to wish you a happy holiday season, merry christmas, happy new year and a good time with family and friends. Cheers, Compulsion Games
  20. Hello! We are currently working on a patch which contains the most fixes we ever had so far. This won't fix all the FPS issues but it will improve them. No specific date yet on the release but it will be in the close future.
  21. Hello! The world will change once you get to Sally, it changes for every character
  22. Hey Bushwacker, Thank for reporting this. We will look at those crashes asap, thanks for the detailed info. So your game has always crashed? Since the launch up until today with fresh new playthroughs and fresh new saves? As for the pre-order, it's really odd that you lost them but I can help you with it! I sent you a DM. Where are the posts that have been removed from Gearbox? I can also look into this. We want the player's feedback on bugs, this is how we fix the game. As far as I am concerned these forums, Steam, our emails and Gearbox helpdesk are the only places where bugs can be reported so I am curious Cheers,
  23. Hey all, Before you create a new thread, here is some basic information: On what platforms will WHF be released on? We Happy Few is currently available on Windows PC (Early Access and GOG.com Games in Development) and Xbox One (Game Preview). We have also announced PS4 which will be available for the full release and the Mac/Linux versions will arrive shortly after the full release. The game is not exclusive to Windows 10. If you have the game on Xbox One but would like to play on PC, you can wait until the game launches on Play Anywhere which will be ready for 1.0 I have purchased the Early Access, do I have to pay again once the full game releases? Oh dear, no, you are settled. I have purchased the Early Access, what do I get? You get the pre-order bonus the Jolly Brolly. Your game will automatically update to the full game on August 10. We Happy Few bugs or issues with buying or installing the game: Please file a ticket to Gearbox support at <https://gearboxsoftware.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/requests/new …> and they'll get back to you as soon as they can. I am a Kickstarter backer, what do I get? You get the Jolly Brolly and the Season Pass. Your game will automatically update to the full game on August 10. When will WHF be released? We Happy Few will be released worldwide both digital and retail August 10, 2018 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Why Early Access? Since March 2015, we have been building We Happy Few openly with our community. First at PAX East, then with our Kickstarter pre-alpha players, and now on Early Access. However, this is a fully 3D procedural world, intended to be played over and over again, with multiple playstyles, and with multiple characters. We need solid feedback to make sure that we create the best game we can, and Early Access has already made the game substantially better. Our last major content update was the Life in Technicolour update[link], our next update will be the full release. When will I receive my Kickstarter rewards? The keys to the game, the posters and T-shirts have been sent (if you haven’t received yours, email us at support@compulsiongames.com). The soundtrack and the art book are coming very soon around launch time. All the merchandise will be shipped once we release the game (no early spoilers!). Can I record footage or live stream? Absolutely. For more info on content creation policy, click here. Can I send you my ideas for your next game? We don’t have enough time to implement our own ideas! Will you translate the game in [...]? The final version of the game will be officially localized in: French, English, Spanish, Italian, German, Japanese, Russian, Chinese and Brazilian Portuguese. But there is also currently a Steam Workshop for community localization! Cheers,
