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.

We’ve noticed a lot of otome visual novels popping up lately and, judging by the speed at which Mystic Destinies is getting funded on Kickstarter, there is definitely a demand for more. This urban fantasy otome visual novel focusses on the tale of a college girl who finds out that she isn’t quite as ordinary as she thought. The game is being developed by Star Maiden Games, a new start-up visual novel company who aim to make their mark on the genre with high quality, compelling titles. The team also have their sights on busting the usual genre tropes, which should be interesting.

Celestian Tales: Old North Launching on Steam, Humble Store and GOG.com

Got a hankering for a turn-based role playing game, but tired of the same old saving the world cliché? In that case, Celestian Tales: Old North might be one to watch. The game promises lush, hand-painted environments, memorable characters, emotive character portraits, moral decisions and a sprawling storyline, but without resorting to the formulaic elements present in most RPGs. This means no ancient prophesies, world ending catastrophes, or character who is the “chosen” one.
