I just wanted to congratulate the developers.

Recommended Posts

Hey, I wanted to say congratulations to the developers of we happy few. I remember getting the early access way back of last year,but to see how much the game has grown since then is a great experience. When I first heard about this game, the story had peeked my interest since I'm a big fan of dystopian fiction such as Brave New World, 1984, We etc etc. A dark story, set in a dystopian world where broken people seeked to escape from the horrors of reality no matter the cost, a plastic facade that the citizens of Wellington Wells have built for themselves. But as of recently there has been a great controversy about Gearbox, and how tainted their reputation is. Even if people have a pessimistic view on this, I believe you guys are telling the truth when it comes to the creative control you have. I sincerely don't want the story to be phased simply because it's too dark, or whatever the case might be. The vision you guys had from the beginning, stick with it, because at the end of the day I believe that It's not about the paycheck but the message you seek to put out in the world. Don't let anyone taint that. But anyway, I hope you guys make a outstanding game with a outstanding dark deep meaningful story. Good luck with it all. :)

My impression is that the angst around the Gearbox partnership is to do with a perceived shift from Compulsion's/WHF's indie Kickstarter persona to a more corporate commercialised one. People see the approach of some of the more corporate companies attitude to micro-transactions, DLC, game pricing etc as a very negative one and fear that WHF will be pulled into that controversial position.

Personally, I have not been asked to change anything for the sake of the Gearbox partnership, nor do I know any dev on the team who has, except that they asked us for $60 worth of content instead of $30 worth of content. We are making the same game. Promise.
