Will hit PCs first and later on for consoles.
Paranoia: Happiness is Mandatory

A new developer diary video came out today for Paranoia: Happiness is Mandatory, the upcoming RPG from Black Shamrock and Bigben. This is a video game adaptation of Greg Costikyan's popular Paranoia board game.

The game will be released on October 3 for the PC and then later on for consoles. You can actually add it to your Steam Wishlist right now if you so desire.

The press release on this one is a bit unusual. I'll include it below the new trailer and screenshots for the game. In short, Paranoia is an RPG set in the Alpha Complex, humanity's last idyllic refuge that is controlled by Friend Computer. You do not question Friend Computer. To do so is tantamount to treason. You do not seek knowledge beyond your security level. To do so is an act of treason. You do not refuse to take your daily dose of Bouncy Bubble Beverage. To do so is treason. Treason will result in death.

It is up to you to find and report traitors. Identify them, report them, and eliminate them if necessary.

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.
