‘We Happy Few’ Survival Game Getting Feature Treatment

Gold Circle Entertainment, who has a string of genre films from The Haunting in Connecticut to The Fourth Kind, is adapting the video game We Happy Few into a feature film, Variety says.

We Happy Few, a survival horror game, is set in an eerie and isolated English town during an alternate-1960s, where the government has imposed a drug-induced happiness to mask gruesome violence and conceal a nefarious mystery. The story revolves around one rebellious resident illegally free of the drug’s effects, who risks his life to learn why his home is a bizarre open-air prison.

Videogame developer Compulsion Games has partnered with dj2 Entertainment on the project. Gold Circle’s Paul Brooks and dj2 Entertainment CEO Dmitri M. Johnson and Chief Content Officer Dan Jevons will produce the project with dj2’s Stephan Bugaj serving as executive producer.

Gold Circle is out to writers now.

    You’d think they’d want to let the game franchise run successfully for a few years before destroying it with a shitty movie adaptation.

    Maybe we should wait for the actual game to release and, you know, make sure it isn’t utter shit before going all in on a movie.

    I played the beta a while back and it was pretty bad

    • Yea it was rough. Heard they did an update not to long ago that fixed quite a few issues. Haven’t tried it again myself. I want this game to be a finish product so much. The idea and setting are great. Reminds me so much of Bioshock but with an even darker vibe.

      • Josh Blitzenbrox Myers

        I feel the same way, this game has a ton of potential. Bioshock with a dark 60’s totalitarian vibe sounds awesome. Unfortunately what I played was just random wandering around in a few bombed out buildings without much purpose, but I was still very early gameplay

  • Eggh fuck it I’ll take it as a separate thing. If the game never truly is established can the movie really actually be an adaptation of the game? Wouldn’t it just be a VERY similar story being told in another medium? Give me both! BRING IT ON!
