After the release of Contrast way back in 2013, things have been rather quiet from Compulsion Games. The developers have finally broken their silence though to announce their latest title, We Happy Few. Apparently they have been hard at work on the game since early 2014 and judging by the trailer it has been time well spent.

The game will be set in an alternative 1960s England, which is a drug-fuelled, retrofuturistic city filled with some eerily happy people. Check out the trailer below to see what happens to anyone who doesn’t abide by the rules of these creepy folks. While we have to reserve judgment until we can actually try out the game, it certainly looks very promising. It definitely looks like an ambitious title as well for an indie studio. However, with Contrast (which we awarded 8/10 in our review in 2013) Compulsion Games have already proven that they are capable of producing great work.

Keep an eye on the Facebook Page and Twitter of Compulsion Games as the developers are promising a much more community-focused approach to We Happy Few.

From Donkey Kong and Dig Dug to Gauntlet and Gradius, the 1980s were a golden era for classic video-game franchises. One of these franchises is Lode Runner, which was first released for the Apple II in 1983 and quickly moved on to other platforms. Its action-packed, yet puzzle-oriented gameplay made it an instant hit and even people like Alexey Pajitnov counted it amongst their favorite puzzle titles. Although there hasn’t been a shortage of new releases over the years, the last appearance of Lode Runner was back in 2012 on Android and iOS. Thankfully, this is about to change with the upcoming release of Lode Runner Legacy for PC.

Otome fans will already be familiar with the big names like Otomate, Voltage and Reject. Newcomers Weeev might be a small group, but their goal is to offer experiences comparable to what players expect from these big developers. That is why Weeev turned to Kickstarter for their debut title, Purrfectly Ever After. In case the name didn’t give it away already, it is a feline themed visual novel starring cute characters and a romantic story.
