Striker Entertainment to develop licensing roster for video game title We Happy Few

Set in a drug-fueled, retro futuristic city in an alternative 1960s England, the game challenges players to blend in with the city’s inhabitants in order to survive and escape.

Compulsion Games has named Striker Entertainment as the worldwide licensing agency for the video game property, We Happy Few.

Set in a drug-fueled, retro futuristic city in an alternative 1960s England, the game challenges players to blend in with the city’s inhabitants in order to survive and escape.

Currently announced for Xbox One, Windows, Mac and Linux, We Happy Few is available on Microsoft Game Preview with a final release date yet to be announced.

“Striker is one of those rare groups that instantly understood why the international community has been raving about We Happy Few, and saw its potential at an early stage,” said Guillaume Provost, president of Compulsion Games.

“They are no nonsense, great communicators and we’re excited to see what we can build together.”

Striker has already secured several licensees for We Happy Few, including McFarlane for action figures and construction sets, Spirit Halloween for costumes, masks and prop weapons and Gold Label for print-on-demand soft goods.

Russell Binder, president of Striker Entertainment, said: “Groundbreaking, distinctive, captivating and uniquely artistic, are words that don’t do this game the justice it deserves.

“We believe that Compulsion’s We Happy Few lends itself to a fantastic programme tailored to gamers and collectors alike.”
