Don’t Be a Downer | We Happy Few – First Impressions

psycheplays_we-happy-few-first-impressions_03

I love playing horror games and scaring myself, but if there’s one thing I’m terrified of more than any of the games I’ve played to spook myself it’s surrealism, particularly the happy kind. For this very reason, We Happy Few genuinely seemed like the perfect game for me. With a suitably creepy aesthetic and theme, and the chirpy surrealism that rustles me to my core, We Happy Few quickly earned the spot as my most highly anticipated Kickstarter game, and I backed it almost immediately.

I have been excited for its release ever since I backed it just over a year ago, and after that I tried to put it to the back of my mind so I could go into the game with a fresh pair of eyes and a completely unspoiled mind, ready to be freaked out. I ignored the E3 coverage and waited patiently for its release. I almost decided not to play in Early Access when I discovered that its story hadn’t been released yet, and it was instead a fairly early demo version of the game, but my excitement got the better of me.

Sadly, I was quite disappointed.

Here are my initial thoughts and first impressions of We Happy Few, along with a breakdown of what the game is, what it does well, and where it needs to improve. I’ll also give you a recommendation at the end on whether or not I think you should pick it up and why.

Some of my must-have Skyrim mods

Some of my must-have Skyrim mods!

One of the first questions I get asked whenever people stop by my Skyrim streams is, “What Skyrim mods do you use?” As Skyrim is one of my favourite games (The Elder Scrolls fangirl for life!) and modding is one of my favourite parts of these games, I figured I’d share some of my must-have mods for Skyrim.

Most of these mods have been installed using the Nexus Mod Manager, and are pretty simple to get set-up! Please keep in mind that these are, of course, only available on PC. I am not at all familiar with modding on Xbox 360, and as far as I know PS3 modding is still not a thing!
