Considering it was just announced in late February, it was a pleasant surprise to see We Happy Few at PAX East last weekend. Compulsion Games' first-person, alternate-history '60s dystopian game turned our heads with its retrofuturistic look, and its premise left us with a box of unanswered questions about how it'll actually work. To gather answers I chatted with Compulsion's creative director on the PAX show floor.

Keep an eye out for our ASUS ROG G751 laptop giveaway soon—we collected signatures from everyone we interviewed at PAX East for a one-of-a-kind prize.
