  1. So happy to see We Happy Few at E3!!!

  2. It's been alluded to by those who were able to play the build at PAX that "something terrible has happened" and this is the reason that the Wellies have to take Joy. I don't know if anyone is familiar with the short story "The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas" by Ursula K. Le Guin, but I cannot stop thinking about this lately and feel that it is connected somehow to the We Happy Few plot. Maybe it's the lack of children in the trailer coupled with the creepy fountain where a man, woman and child hold hands and spin in eternal glee. Maybe it's trying to think about something so tragic that would make an entire city (nation? world?) have to take 'happy pills' to forget and move on. For me this would have to be something involving children. Wikipedia says "Omelas, a utopian city whose prosperity and success depend on the perpetual misery of a single child, kept locked beneath it in squalor and torture" ... though, maybe for Wellington Wells, it's not the sacrifice of a single child but all children. A deal brokered by Uncle Jack? Political figures? The extreme loss felt by those adults directly affected would explain their violent reactions to any "downers" or those who are otherwise unappreciative of the sacrifice made by/of their children. What do you think?
  3. With popularity of the site growing, I think it would help to have a set of We Happy Few threads on the main forum page to compliment Contrast's threads. Especially with a FAQ since I see you guys are getting a lot of repeat questions. I know you're busy though - just a friendly suggestion
  4. @Sam That's so crazy. The pictures from PAX are really stirring up some thoughts for me as well as someone's brave suggestion of a multiplayer. I'm still playing through Contrast again but I'm feeling more and more like it was just a step for the Compulsion Team, where as We Happy Few is starting to feel like a marathon. Tons of talk about how it reminds people of BioShock (one of my first responses) and Fallout to Don't Starve and even Enter The Void (movie). I'm so excited for where this is going and really hope to be apart of the discussion going forward. Also... Kickstarter!! Do you guys have plans to visit any other conferences coming up this year?
  5. @DrBeardface Wow what an intriguing idea, kind of like Assassin's Creed and how you can blend in to hide/assassinate. I never even thought of the game being Multiplayer but now that you bring it up I think it would really work to the games benefit. There's already two clearly defined sides and from that I can imagine a few different multiplayer game types: Destroy the Others, Don't Get Caught, Hack the System/Turn the Village... Personally, I love games where I have to find things so I would even enjoy a lighter action/darker themed Scavenger Hunt for multi.
  6. Having myself some chocolate chip waffles right now. I can't drink water right after waking up but lord knows I can have me some chocolate!
  7. @Sam I had one once. It was good but pretty seedy, like strawberries. I have ONE friend from NZ (GO ALL BLACKS!)
  8. IM SO EXCITED! YAY!! And so jealous of everyone who got to play! Bastards, with their means of travel!!
  9. Seeing lots of great pictures from PAX East and new perspectives of the game! Love that bobby sign, so... terrifying!!!
  10. My active games right now are Plants Vs Zombies, Rogue Legacy (both Vita) and Contrast (PS4).
  11. Nope. Nope. Nope. Nope. Nope. Nope. Nope. Nope. Nope. Nope.... Eat spiders!? Like, by choice?! WTF!!? Nope. Nope. Nope. Nope. Nope. Nope. Nope. Nope. Nope. Nope. NEIN
  12. Contrast will be one of 50 games available when the NVIDIA Shield hits stores in May!
  13. I just reread the article and noticed (among some typos..grrrr) that I hadn't thrown in a link to Compulsion! So I just wanted to let you guys know that I've fixed that
