Psycho-Pass: Mandatory Happiness

Psycho-Pass: Mandatory Happiness

In the near future technology is developed that allows ones state of mind and personality traits to be quickly quantified and profiled.

All emotion, desire, and social disease are documented and managed by the government for the public good. The quality of each person’s life is measured by a single number. That number, which represents how close the mind and soul are to perfection, is known as the Psycho-Pass. The system also calculates a number that represents criminal capacity, known as the Crime Coefficients. This number is the basis of the justice dispensed by the police force. Officers are divided into two groups: Enforcers, who are tasked with the investigation of crimes and the capture of criminals, and Inspectors, who are charged with managing the Enforcers. Enforcers with high Crime Coefficients have proven more effective at understanding the criminal mind. This ability is used by the police department to solve complex and difficult cases. Because they have such high Crime Coefficients, however, they must be monitored all time by the Inspectors, to ensure that none of them actually become criminals. Though each member of the Public Safety Bureau carries their own burdens, they must see that justice is served – in a society where everything is quantified, they have to make sure it all adds up.

What’s waiting for them out there..?

    The Computer is your friend. The Computer wants you to be happy. Happiness is mandatory. Failure to be happy is treason. Treason is punishable by summary execution.

    Good one.
    Also I have to mention – according to steam reviews the final build (this) has some issues with 64bit Windows 10 systems so if it doesn’t run for you it’s not admin’s fault. Run it inside a virtual machine or something. How can they break a unity game so it doesn’t run properly on windows is beyond me.
