We Happy Few, the psychedelic horror survival game set in 1960's-era England, has been delayed once again. The developers behind Compulsion Games have confirmed the same as they have published a video regarding the update. The game will have a total of three narratives, one following Arthur - who is now playable in the game; Sally, and a third character who is now unknown. Therefore, the beginning of Arthur's story is receiving a bit of a facelift.

Having already suffered a delay into early 2018, the developer revealed that they need additional time to rebuild the first few hours of the game. In a developer update video, Chief Operating Officer Sam Abbott and Creative Director Guillaume Provost sat down to discuss these changes and explain the reasons behind the delay. We'll continue working to make sure 1.0 is great and something you'll be happy buying. You'll have to fight or blend in with the drug-addled inhabitants, most of whom don't take kindly to people who won't abide by their not-so-normal rules. Explaining that the story did not the needed criteria, the developers have chose to take a U-turn and give this game another chance at a later date.

The developers, however, did acknowledge in the Steam update post that the price point is high for an early access game, which the game itself won't receive any more updates until the full launch. After an initial Kickstarter campaign netted Compulsion Games over USD$250,000.00 to fund creation, an early access version was released on Steam, GOG.com, the Humble Bundle store, and the Xbox One, with the full game scheduled to go live in the summer of 2017. As of right now, its release has been moved from April 2018 to summer of 2018. They will also be disabling the option to pre-purchase the game at the end of this month, and will be re-enabling purchase "closer to launch when more info and materials on the game will have been released, giving players more clarity on what they can expect in the full version of We Happy Few".
