Compulsion Games’ We Happy Few might still be in early access on Steam for PC and Xbox One through their Game Preview Program but that hasn’t stopped a We Happy Few movie from being made. The first report came through Variety who reported that the film is being made with “Pitch Perfect” producer Gold Circle Entertainment.
Compulsion Games has partnered with dj2 Entertainment on the project. Gold Circle’s Paul Brooks and dj2 Entertainment CEO Dmitri M. Johnson and Chief Content Officer Dan Jevons will produce the film. dj2’s Stephan Bugaj will serve as executive producer.
If you aren’t familiar with We Happy Few, it is a survival game set in an isolated English town called Wellington Wells that has chosen to block out the cold reality of the world after the War by using a drug called “joy.” Joy allows the population to live in a colourful and carefree world but if you stop taking joy you become a “downer” and see the world for the horror it is.
Compulsion Games has released a big update recently called The Maidenholm Update which you can see below:
