“Striker is one of those rare groups that instantly understood why the international community has been raving about We Happy Few, and saw its potential at an early stage. They are no nonsense, great communicators and we’re excited to see what we can build together,” said Guillaume Provost, President of Compulsion Games.
Russell Binder, President of Striker Entertainment said, “Groundbreaking, distinctive, captivating, and uniquely artistic, are words that don’t do this game the justice it deserves. We believe that Compulsion’s We Happy Few lends itself to a fantastic program tailored to gamers and collectors alike.”
Striker has already secured several licensees for We Happy Few, including McFarlane for action figures and construction sets; Spirit Halloween for costumes, masks, and prop weapons; and Gold Label for print-on-demand soft goods. Products should be available later this year.
