At Microsoft's E3 press conference We Happy Few made an appearance, and Compulsion Games' marketing director Cord Smith and art director Whitney Clayton were showing off the game at the showcase afterwards, so we had a chat with them about how the game has changed and where they are now.

The development cycle for Compulsion Games' We Happy Few has been an interesting one, with the mixed response from the early access release causing the devs to go back to the drawing board in many ways. Check out the trailer, and soak in some of the terrifically weird and macabre atmosphere.

We Happy Few will release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on August 10th.

In We Happy Few, cheerfulness is compulsory and forced upon the citizens of England through the wearing of creepy white masks and a drug filled society.

This, of course, makes sense in a business sense, but also because before the acquisition the team was already working on the PS4 version. Even though their current game won't be an exclusive, their next ones will, and the Xbox One stands to benefit greatly from this addition.

"We Happy Few is the tale of a plucky bunch of moderately awful people trying to escape from a lifetime of cheerful denial". We'll have our full interview and hands-on preview with a newer build of the game out soon.
