Bigben Interactive has announced that Paranoia: Happiness is Mandatory will launch for PC on October 3, with a PlayStation 4 and Xbox One release to follow. The Steam page is here.
A new developer diary has also been posted, giving a behind-the-scenes look at the game and the development team. Paranoia: Happiness is Mandatory is a 'darkly humorous CRPG' adapted from the tabletop role-playing game. You can learn more from the announcement trailer & information here, and our hands-on impressions from E3 2019 here.
Check out the video below, along with the silly press release.
Lesquin, 22 August 2019 - As part of a special mission ordered by Friend Computer, our reporter was sent to Ireland to investigate Black Shamrock, the studio developing Paranoia: Happiness is Mandatory, amidst rumours that one of the team could be guilty of treason…
As a Red clearance Troubleshooter, you have been granted access to the full video report. Many aspects of the game development were scrutinised: the passion for the Paranoia tone, the challenges of adapting a tabletop role-playing game into a video game, the combat system, the unique gameplay and, of course, the utmost happiness felt by everyone in the team!
But Citizen, Friend Computer noticed that one team member hesitated when asked. Don't forget, happiness is mandatory. Not being happy is tantamount to treason and traitors will be asked to report to the nearest extermination centre immediately.
Control a team of four Troubleshooters of dubious loyalty, who (mostly) obey orders from Friend Computer, a paranoid and irrational artificial intelligence. Inspired by classic CRPGs, the game is the first official adaptation of the cult role-playing game.
After checking with Friend Computer, we can confirm the game will release on 3 October 2019 on PC and later on consoles.
