Compulsion Games promises into continue making ‘crazy games’ following Microsoft(NASDAQ:MSFT) acquisitionPolygon #Happy_FewMay 16, 2019
The team at Compulsion will “continue making crazy games,” he said, adding that’s why “Microsoft is buying us.” The only difference Epstein sees moving forward is having more time to create polished games.
This would be nice to have, so we probably won’t do it unless it’s a hobby horse for some person or if I nag a level designer enough, you know, maybe I’ll get something.’”
Compulsion Games is a relatively small team.
They ended up with dozens more, and that still isn’t quite enough to give players the experience or AAA-level polish they may want from the open-world game.
“I mean, we’ve, we’ve been trying to punch above our weight, right,” Epstein said.
“You know, we started with six people in this game.
We ended up with 40 people.
Compulsion Games’ acquisition also means that, yes, the studio’s next game will be Xbox exclusive.
( We Happy Few , which is being published by Gearbox, will be multiplatform.)
Epstein wouldn’t tease what Compulsion’s next game may be, but reiterated the team is hard at work on We Happy Few and working on ensuring people don’t get stuck in the landscape or, in my case, fly backward with outstretched, severed arms.
