We Happy Few No Longer Banned in Australia

Share

Another big part of this announcement is that Compulsion Games was not forced to modify We Happy Few to meet the Classification Board's guidelines. In the Classification Review Board's opinion We Happy Few warrants an R 18+ classification because the interactive drug use is high in impact. This means that We Happy Few will now be available for purchase. "In this context, our game's overarching social commentary is no different than Aldous Huxley's Brave New World, or Terry Gilliam's Brazil".

Compulsion Games upcoming drug-tinged project We Happy Few has been granted release in Australia. With Kickstarter involved in the game's funding, that would've been a whole mess. We Happy Few is slated to come out on August 10.

Parker wants to play at least 20 years in the National Basketball Association . "He was the face of the franchise". For the first time in his career, Tony Parker will not play for the San Antonio Spurs next season.

Initially, the classification board argued that due to the reasons listed above, the game's systems incentivise drug use and therefore decided not to issue a rating.

"We are extremely pleased with the decision of the board and excited that our Australian fans and new players will be able to experience We Happy Few without modification", Compulsion Games wrote in a blog post (thanks IGN). However, those in Australia were almost denied access to the game after it was denied classification last month for its depiction of drug use. Now, with the decision to award an R 18+ classification, "We Happy Few" can be sold in-stores. We Happy Few certainly doesn't glorify drug use, as using the drug just makes players more like the violent people in the dystopian society they're trapped in.
