Remember We Happy Few, one of the more interesting indies from the Xbox E3 conference a few years ago? Well continue remembering it fondly, because the game has just been refused classification in Australia.
An RC listing for the game has appeared on the Classification Board’s website, saying the game has been refused a rating under the Games 1(a) clause. The clause is defined as “computer games that “depict, express or otherwise deal with matters of sex, drug misuse or addiction, crime, cruelty, violence or revolting or abhorrent phenomena in such a way that they offend against the standards of morality, decency and propriety generally accepted by reasonable adults to the extent that they should not be classified.”
We Happy Few was available through Early Access and the Xbox Game Preview program. It was available for purchase earlier this year on Steam, but as of February 1 “pre-purchase functionality” was removed ahead of the game’s release.
