CRPG Paranoia: Happiness is Mandatory Has Been Announced

Friend computer wants to know, are you happy citizen?

Bigben with Cyanide Studio and Black Shamrock have announced their upcoming game Paranoia: Happiness is Mandatory with a new trailer highlighting what players can expect from the game.

The trailer introduces Friend Computer, an A.I. that enforces happiness. If you are not happy, you are terminated or adjusted. But what if you aren’t happy? You must deceive and scheme to survive because you are constantly being watched. Don’t worry though, if you’re eliminated your clone will take over for you.


Lead a team of four Troubleshooters of dubious loyalty who (mostly) obey orders from Friend Computer. Inspired by the classic games of the CRPG genre, experience the first adaptation of the cult role-playing game.

There isn’t much more information at this current moment, but Friend Computer has assured me that the game will be releasing on PC and console sometime in 2019.

Watch the trailer below.
