The State of We Happy Few

This is not their first game they made a game call contract which is also bad.

Wait this was them? That i didn't know. It just goes to show that whoever Microsoft hires for their studio it wont be top notch

Absolutely correct, but that one didn't get too much attention

Contrast was a similar rated game, but the storyline and setting were amazing, just like We Happy Few.

Now let see how good (or bad) they can be under MS’ umbrella.

Believe it or not, I'd say there's two positives to extrapolate:

-Some of their biggest weaknesses can be immediately addressed (launch issues due to lacking resources + manpower)

-Reliance on a greenlight from publisher (sticking TO said plan/timelines) rather than any type of about-face on their current project's overarching structure. The We Happy Few we see today is a different beast from what Kickstarter backers initially viewed--in respect to design, not mood or art style. While most will think a more structured, Bioshock-y template (like from the E3 demo) was a much better route...the changes needed to accommodate said vision was like trudging through a quagmire.

I loved this game. Until I reached the end of arthurs campaign. The novelty had worn off and it became a chore to play, I'm done with it for now.

Don't worry Xbox fanboys Microsoft will move the WHF dev over to do mobile games more money over there anyway. And some of the new studios Microsoft purchased has to do them mobile games if not all of them as it's pretty clear Microsoft is more interested in the PC, mobile gaming money.

If anyone's interested, I'm doing a walkthrough of this game on youtube: any feedback is appreciated :)
