E3 2016: The opening sequence of We Happy Few is going to freak you out

Compulsion Games took the stage at Microsoft’s E3 presser this morning to run through the introductory sequence to their psychadelic thriller We Happy Few. It’s grotesque and disturbing and weird and we can’t wait to play it.

We Happy Few is set in an alternate 1960’s Britain where the citizenry is hooked on a happiness drug. Our faceless hero decides that it’s time to quit and it becomes quickly apparent that this simple action will have dire consequences.

We Happy Few arrives on the Xbox One Preview program on July 26.
