Wellington Wells is a city in the southwest of England and the setting of We Happy Few. It is Unclear Where the islands are located in England but this might be reveled in the future. But judging by the old road signs in the Garden District, such as Victoria Bridge which is in Worcestshire but can say Upper Bristol road which is Bath. But these are most likely there as just decoration.
Wellington Wells is a city haunted by the ghosts of its recent past. In 1933, this world deviated from our own, and the Germans successfully invaded and occupied England during World War 2. Most of England is rubble, as is a fair part of Wellington Wells.
However, during the Occupation, the Wellies all had to do A Very Bad Thing. To calm their anguish and guilt - and forget what they’d done - the Wellies invented Joy, the miracle happiness drug, that obviously has no side effects whatsoever.
They set about rebuilding their town, and along the way, got a bit carried away with technological research and development. So, the Wellington Wells you will see is a combination of areas ravaged by war, and areas rebuilt with futuristic “modern” technology.
Now in 1964, the "sane" inhabitants of Wellington Wells are all on Joy and those who are not are cast away.
The motto of the city is "In Posterum Cum Gaudio" which translates roughly from Latin as "Hence With Joy", which could be taken temporally.
The Garden District was the rural part of Wellington Wells, nearing the Victory gardens. The place suffered heavy bombing and was left in ruins while the rest of the city redeveloped itself. Now overgrowth and run-down, the Garden District is used to cast away the Wastrels, the inhabitants who reacts badly to Joy. Those survivors took over whichever house were still standing and installed traps to defend themselves.
The Garden District is seperated into four islands: the unnamed first island, Lud's Holm shut off by a makeshift toll gate, Ravens Holm placed under quarantine and Apple Holm heavily protected with security devices.
Hamlyn Village is one of the "sane" district of Wellington Wells. This is where the middle-class Wellies live, protected by Bobbies and security systems. Hamlyn Village is located on St. Georges Holm.
Maidenholm is the second island visited by Arthur after Hamlyn Village. It Can Be Accessed by either St George's Holm or Luds Holm. It is much more dangerous then Hamlyn Village As there are peepers that patrol the island, if your not on joy they will sound an alarm and electrocute you. The St Genesis Chuch is found here There is a pub and Dr Faradays lab is located on the island You can access Cerne Holm on this island. Note that many quests that were on Hamlyn Village have been moved here.
Cerne Holm Is Located Next To Maidenholm you can access the island just by walking across the bridge as there is no checkpoint like the previous island though this could change in future updates. Nick Lightbearers Pad is located here as is the Thomasia House and Eric Blair Park. The island has a chemist and a downer free park.
The Parade District is the next area visited by Arthur after Hamlyn Village and is where the wealthy Wellies live. His only safe way of reaching the district is by a wooden raft found in the sewers of Apple Holm. The bridge to the mainland is connected to the Parade District.
Emerald City Edit
Emerald City is the most developed area of Wellington Wells, with tall buildings and richer Wellies. It is the farthest part of the city and where the escape hatch is located. Players can reach it after finding the Wellington Underground maintenance hatch in Apple Holm. (This Does Not Exist Anymore As Of The Recent Updates)
