What is "Happy Game"?
When I was watching Lukas give a presentation on Chuchel, he said something about "Happy Game", which is apparently not a happy game at all. He said it would be the next project after Chuchel.

I think Lukas meant that Chuchel was a "Happy Game".

BTW, where did you watch Lukas present on Chuchel?  I'd like to watch that!

I watched it on YouTube.

Fantastic arcade 2017: CHUCHEL developer commentary with amanita games

Video by Brandon Boyer.

Lukas said to the audience, that they should come to Fantastic Arcade next year, where you will probably be showing your next game, "Happy Game"

Watch from 27:50.

Here is the link to the video: http://youtu.be/MqbdoPEWEAI

Interesting! Nice find, BUTLER.  Smiley But I have no clue what it could be.  Huh (I chat with Lukas occasionally, but I doubt he would tell me anything more about it...we'll just have to wait and see.)

Thanks for the information, as well as adding the link!

I guess we'll find out pretty soon, judging by CHUCHEL vs. 2018!  Wink

I just watched some of DevQuest and Phonopolis looks really cool. Could this be Happy Game? I don't know if Amanita Design uses code names for their projects, like giant corporations, but "happy game" might be the code name for Phonopolis.

Amanita design is currently working onn 4 new games according to PC Gamer. One of them is most likely Phonopolis (https://www.igromania.ru/news/70232/Amanita_Design_vypustit_kartonnyy_kvest_Phonopolis.html). Another game is is a horror game by Jára Plachý. If Happy Game is Plachý's new project then there might be some relation to Mulatu, music video made by Plachý in 2013. It is also possible that Happy Game is one of those other 2 projects that we know nothing about.

This new horror game and happy game definitely sound similar. Phonopolis looks kind of dark, but Lukas Kunce described this new game as in the style of Botanicula and Chuchel, only darker. Phonopolis does not really look like those games to me, and I don't even know who's developing it.
Also, have you noticed that happy game was mentioned by Lukas Kunce in the original clip this topic is about, and Lukas was also the one talking about the horror game.

That is why it came to my mind that Happy Game could be the horror game developed by Jára Plachý. If it is correct then Happy Game could be related to Mulatu musice video (link - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JPJrHrH4dWc). Mulatu is also pretty horror and disturbing (Kunce stated that the horror game by Plachý is also pretty disturbing) and name Happy Game would be perfectly fitting.

Mulatu isn't the only dark thing Plachy has worked on. A couple months ago I found DVA's and Plachy's YouTube channels and I watched a bunch of their videos. The one I remember the most is Nunovo Tango, but there are many others.

I agree that Nunovo Tango is also pretty dark. Still the name Happy Game fits Mulatu the most in my opinion. Those smiley faces and distopian "Happy" world. It would be a perfect fit.

It sounds to me like the game "We Happy Few".

It would have some similarities in topic but with Amanita style, atmosphere and crazy world. It is still just a speculation. Maybe Happy Game will be something different. Still I'm looking forward to it.

There's not much confirmed, but what is, is definitely exciting.

What is also confirmed, is that I will be watching Amanita Design at this years Fantastic Arcade. Not live, just on the internet.
