Arthur Hastings is the only playable character in We Happy Few. During early Alpha, he was the only character available. During the beginning stages of the game, we find that Arthur had a brother named Percival whom he referred to as "Percy." It is unknown what has happened to his brother. Arthur comes across a newpaper article and starts to remember his brother, obviously upsetting Arthur. Players are then asked to decide wether to remember the story and not take Joy (the in-game "happy pill") or forget and take the pill. Spoiler - Players who choose to take the pill, soon find themselves staring at the end game credits.
