Hamlyn Village Encounters walkthrough

Encounters are the quests in We Happy Few. Main Encounters are necessary to escape the city, while Secondary Encounters can reward you with blueprints and other useful items. There are currently three types of Encounters: Story Encounters, Main Encounters and Secondary Encounters.

As of this writing, there are no Story Encounters in the game's alpha state. Also, The Prologue starts the game but never changes, and you can skip it after your first playthrough.

Editor's note

We Happy Few is a work in progress, which makes this guide a work in progress, too. As the game grows, we'll keep playing and expanding this guide.

Also, keep in mind that We Happy Few has procedurally generated environments, so no two playthroughs will ever be the exact same. As such, Encounters occur in random and different locations every time. Some Encounters and interactions may not even generate. Even though locations can change, commonalities exist, and we'll tell you what to look for when you need to locate an Encounter.
