We Happy Few: Uncle Jack Live VR | Signal Space Lab

We Happy Few: Uncle Jack Live VR is an interactive extension from the video game We Happy Few, developed by Compulsion Games. We combined cinematic and CGI styles to bring a dynamic piece where players will have access to the game’s archives and the chance to build a full news broadcast with Uncle Jack, the main antagonist and celebrity figure of the town Wellington Wells.

In-studio, users will decide what type of articles go live, each article effecting Uncle Jack’s reaction. Good or bad he will try to maintain the town under a controlled state of mind called ‘joy’.
