We Happy Few Might Make Us Happy Many With Possible Movie

A potential movie is in the works based on Compulsion’s video game “We Happy Few” – a sort of video game combination of the 1985 movie “Brazil” with some “Clockwork Orange” elements tossed in – that had an early access version released last year.

The “Brazil”-like tone is established from the beginning as the video game is set in a dreary UK town in a parallel universe version of the 1960s, where the government has elected to drug its population with happy drugs in hopes that they might ignore ongoing violence and the inevitable government-is-behind-it mysteries. But invariably, one rebel bucks the drugged-up system and attempts to learn what is behind the government’s curtain.

“We Happy Few” is expected to have a more complete version of the game released before the movie – which is expected to have a 2019 or 2020 release date.
