We Happy Few

It's out now on steam. I guess it didn't die.

All I can discern from the trailers is that it's not so much an exploring dystopia but a cutscene dystopia. That and they made the mistake of revealing there is at least one generic fetch quest so I assume there's more where that came from.

It's 15% off for me but jesus christ, that only puts it at £39 for me, down from £45. Is the pound doing terribly or is it expensive across the channel and the pond too? The negative reviews are saying something about early access owners get it at 50% off because apparently paying for early access isn't paying for final access.

Oh and there is a season pass worth the price of a popular indie game. It promises three DLCs of no determined length or content because digital consumerism is the real joy pill.

There are apparently numerous bugs with the AI getting stuck in doors and similar, requiring reloads.

It's still a loot and craft game but I don't know what became of the survival elements. It does have RPG elements - skills/perks and points to unlock them! So, take that as you wish.

It does have more positive reviews than negative though it looks roughly equal and the top two English reviews are negative whilst the next bundle underneath are positive. I assume it's just a story based game that'll be the Kessel run kills Han Solo spoiled within the next two days.
Go appreciate Nienhaus.

I lay my eyes upon!!! Can you believe this!? Disgracing my name in multiple ways within the mere span of a few MINUTES!!!! I tell him "NO NI[B][B]A," he laughs. I inform him, "I'M GOING TO GET BWOINKED FOR THIS," as a joke referencing rule 8. To which PEE KAY PENGUIN, THREE HUNDRED AND TWENTY SECOND OF HIS CLASS, immediately bwoinks me, informing me "Yes, that is correct. You are currently being private messaged by me, PKPenguin, mastermind behind the /tg/station headmin triumvirate. Prepare to be banned, plebian. *smirks* ...and it looks like you've already had your final warning. *begins booting up ban cannon* Any last words...?" I am shocked by this statement. I voted for this man in the headmin election, I'm supposed to have ban immunity from him!!! The power has gone to his head!!! After a few seconds that feel as if they last forever, I remain silent -- frozen under the prowess of extreme shock and awe. "No...? Heh, well then... *eye glows blue* Into the trash it goes!" Not even 5 seconds after I read this final message, my PC shuts off. I'm literally shaking at this point, not knowing whether I am going to live to see tomorrow. I just got off the phone with my mom, informing her that we may not see each other for a while. She was confused, and starting to get scared -- so I just had to hang up on her. I didn't want to put her through what you put me through today, PKPenguin321. You are a disgusting, vile creature -- and if you ever talk to me or my mom ever again, I WILL bring you down. Back down to where you came.

I've got it, though I can't really give it a fair assessment since I have performance issues.

It's not a bad game from what I've played, the survival mechanics do serve a purpose of making you have to risk breaking conformity at least. It's pretty overpiced to be honest but if it was something like £25, then that would be a more fair estimate.

A friend said it's more bioshock linear progression than a walkabout.
