Default Paranoia: Happiness is Mandatory - Dev Video Diary

August 23rd, 2019, 14:47
A developer diary video for Paranoia: Happiness is Mandatory has been made available.

Lesquin, France, August 22, 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.

Needed some smoking boots left in that guy's chair. There's been a DECIDED lack of smoking boots in this whole marketing push! Maybe they've got really special graphics for that and want to reveal the effect on release day?

I really love the Paranoia RPG, but somehow, I don't feel it in this game. Well, I'll wait, see and hope that I'm just wrong.
