Compulsion Games responds to We Happy Few R18+ classification

We Happy Few is a self-described "game of paranoia and survival, in a drugged-out, dystopian English city in 1964". The main sticking point was that players had to take a fictional in-game drug called "Joy" in order to progress with the story.

The government says the reunification process is going faster for parents now in ICE custody than those who have been released. News reported that the DOJ requested an extension of the court-mandated deadlines to reunite children with their parents.

Compulsion Games announced on their official website that their video game was denied by the Australian Classification Review Board in May. Better yet, Compulsion Games didn't have to make any changes to We Happy Few to get its classification, meaning Australian fans will be able to play through the same version of the game as everybody else.

This overturns a prior ruling that effectively banned the game from sale in Australia after the board refused to give We Happy Few a rating. The reason why it was denied originally was the focus on drug use within the game.

"I know that We Happy Few has been on the Early Access rollercoaster for nearly two years now, but it really looks like the game being released this summer will be a very different animal than the one we were first introduced to", wrote the preview's author. This means that We Happy Few will now be available for purchase. The people in the game are depicted as violent psychopaths due to their overuse of the drug, and all have basically lost their humanity. Now, with the decision to award an R 18+ classification, "We Happy Few" can be sold in-stores. Now it just needs to live up to all the hype it's built over these past few years once it finally launches next month.
