Return to We Happy Few With “A Clockwork Update”

Hello! Sam here from Compulsion Games. Today we're publishing A Clockwork Update for We Happy Few. This update is a big “under the hood” release, addressing the nuts and bolts of how the game works, and addresses a huge number of issues we have received from you guys, like Faraday falling through the floor, the duck randomly not-existing, and the final island sometimes not spawning at all!

Overcooked’s Free “Festive Seasoning” DLC Coming December 6

It's been a busy year. I feel like I say this at the end of most years, but this year, I'm confident in saying, it has been the busiest I've ever had. At the beginning of 2015 we started working on Overcooked, sat with our laptops trying to figure out how on earth we'd found ourselves developing a four-player game with only two people in my front room, but when you take that big leap into uncharted waters you don't have much choice but to start swimming. By 2016 we were in full stride on development with an impending deadline approaching and lack of sleep gradually stealing away our sanity. We poured everything we had into the project, we took it to conventions where we sat chewing... Read more

Furi Available Now on Xbox One

When you start development of a game, you often have references in mind. And as you create that game, you see those similarities and its inspirations. You start to wonder, "Is my game too similar? Am I making something unique or just being a copycat?" Working on Furi, I remembered fondly these Japanese games from 10 to 20 years ago: God Hand, Metal Gear Solid 3, No More Heroes, Super Punch Out!, Alien Soldier… I wanted Furi to have that same feeling with amazing character design and responsive controls to match the concept I had in mind: it was going to be a boss fight game. But I wanted Furi to be varied, to surprise gamers and to offer different challenges over more than eight hours... Read more
