One of the Indie World Showcase's most standout games was, undoubtedly, the very unhappy looking Happy Game.
From developer Amanita Design, Happy Game has players solving unnerving puzzles, enduring a few unsettling songs and surviving face-to-face encounters with suspicious smiley faces. The reveal trailer was absolute nightmare fuel, and we're here for it.
It's planned to launch on both Switch and PC next spring, so we hopefully won't have too long to wait before we can get our hands on it and cry ourselves to sleep afterwards. Here's a feature list:
- Brand new psychedelic horror adventure from the creators of Botanicula and CHUCHEL
- Endure and escape three unforgettable nightmares
- Solve deeply disturbing puzzles in (not so) charming environments
- Deal with suspicious smiley faces and pink bunnies
- Creepy songs and screeches from the Czech freak-folk band DVA
Want some creepy screenshots? Of course you want creepy screenshots:
Is this one going on your Switch wishlist? Sweet dreams!
Creepy and weird in the best possible way. I'll have to keep an eye on this one.
This instantly got my attention. Looking forward to this one.
This game looks cool and interesting but I think it needs a more unique title.
Love the title. One to watch I reckon.
Definitely looks interesting. Anything similar to Yume Nikki’s brand of psychedelic horrible craziness sounds good to me.
For some reason, I was vaguely reminded of Inside and Limbo, though the differences are obviously manifold. An unfair comparison, perhaps, but they've intrigued me, at least.
Sweet. I was hoping not to get any sleep tonight!
That looks, uh, pretty wild. Not usually what I go for with horror but intrigued nonetheless.
I'm not really one for the psychological horror. I'm more for the horror where the threat is more immediately visible like Resident Evil. I'll pass but it looked interesting.
This game is a little to much for me, But it still looks cool.
I looove Amanita, and this is way outside their usual wheelhouse. Usually, they do cheerful family-friendly surrealism. I shudder to think what their take on surreal horror will look like. (And I intend to find out!)
Doesn't look like a happy game but I'm happy that it's coming to Switch.
The human mind scares me sometimes.
Looks interesting imo. I will keep my eye on this game
Any update on it's release?
@RueBug October 28th. Its on the eshop listed October 28th and it is announced for October 28th.
In time for Halloween
Yayyy! Thanks umm @anonymous! I was hoping for now, happy I'm not disappointed. HUGE fan of Amantia! Happy gaming!
