The wave of survival games became a dry, salty breeze to the face with We Happy Few. Let's throw some salt back at them.
Relative happiness is relative. What makes you happy can make others scream out in eldritch horror. What makes me happy… well, I’ll need you to sign this permission form before I can reveal that truth.
Take that to your parents.
In the meantime, here’s another sequel to Eyes Wide Shut.
We Happy Few lives up to the “We” part of its name. No one is happy, and there are far too many people at this sex cult. Also known as modern day England.
Alas no, this takes place in alternate reality England. Where everyone wears white face, and pretends to enjoy things no rational human being could. While denying a grim, bloody past of painful memories. I am allegory: devourer of worlds.
You walk around as Christian Bale from Equilibrium. You’ve felt the warm sexual tension in your local railing and can never go back to the other side. You are hunted for your love of railings. Your love is never understood by the grinning gestapo. You must run.
OR NOT TO BE!
Hunger. Thirst. Stamina. Hunger. Thirst. Stamina. Hunger. Thirst. Stamina. Hunger. Thirst. Stamina. Hunger. Thirst. Stamina. Hunger. Thirst. Stamina. Hunger. Hunger. HUNGERRRRR. Hunger. Thirst. Stamina. Hunger. Thirst. Stamina. Hunger. Thirst. Stamina. Hunger. Thirst. Stamina. Now, take your pill! Hunger. Thirst. Stamina. Hunger. Thirst. Stamina.
I seem to have summoned a large amount of food, water, and pillows. I am a yule log of hu-man needs.
What are you doing? Where are you going? Whom is it affecting? My mind simply couldn’t take in those details. Perhaps you are to rescue a chipmunk with a monocle who holds the secret of world hunger clenched behind its stretched little cheeks. But I fear it is actually something like making people remember how racist they were one time.
We Happy Few leaves mildly ashamed many. Two white faces out of 23.
I believe I’ve done it - the secret to world hunger. Fill a pillow with a bag of funions, mix in some water, and sleep on it for three consecutive nights. Flip your mattress, then two additional nights. Your hunger is now satiated.
And you...are welcome.
