It was touch and go for a while there after We Happy Few was refused classification in Australia, but sense was seen, it was re-rated R18+, and it’s available today.
Having initially been refused classification due to its depiction of drug use – depiction that many would easily argue is very anti-drug – the Classification Review Board determined that the game should actually be classified as R18+, with the consumer advice “Fantasy violence and interactive drug use”.
We Happy Few is the tale of a trio of fairly terrible people in an alternate 1960s England, who are trying to escape a life of conformity in the town of Wellington Wells. The town’s rules are totally out there, and you have to blend in with the drugged-up citizens or risk the consequences.
Seriously, how could you not want to find out more after watching this fab launch trailer with its bouncy jangle-pop track?
