We Happy Few Has Been Approved for Sale in Australia

We Happy Few is slated to come out on August 10. We are the happy few now.

Compulsion Games wrote in a blog post, "After considering our appeal to get We Happy Few reviewed for classification, the Australian Classification Review Board has made a decision to allow the release of We Happy Few in Australia!" This decision does not require Compulsion Games to modify any of the content, but will warn consumers of its "Fantasy violence and interactive drug use", according to the final report.

We Happy Few originally ran aground on Aussie shores due to its use of drugs, which in certain portions of the game can help the player progress. This means that We Happy Few will now be available for purchase. In the game's dystopian version of Britain, you're encouraged to take a hallucinogenic drug called "Joy", making the boring and drab world of misery look like it's all happy and full of fun, like a piñata to whack until candies pop out actually being a large rat in a bag.

More details will be published on the Classification Review Board decisions page once it's been properly prepared. Do you think the rules against including drug use in video games are sensible?

Luckily, it seems that the board agrees after a "three-member panel Classification Review Board has unanimously determined that the computer game We Happy Few is classified R 18+ (Restricted)".

Gearbox Publishing saw this as a misunderstanding of We Happy Few's themes and issued the appeal that led to this overruling following the decision made late last month.
