Rock Paper Shotgun uploaded a 28 minute video preview of Paranoia: Happiness is Mandatory to their YouTube channel a few days ago. Unlike the IGN gameplay video from June, this time whoever was playing took his time, offering us a chance to actually read the dialogue and observe some of the game's less obvious mechanics. In this mission, Friend Computer tasks the player's team with hunting down a secret society of traitorous vending machine worshippers. It seems to be a bit more varied than the mission we saw in June. Rock Paper Shotgun's previewer narrates the video and points out interesting aspects, such as the damage immunity system determined by the player's color clearance level, various points in the mission where there are multiple solutions to obstacles the team encounters, a loot-stealing cleanup droid that the player can attempt to outrun during combat, and the many ways that the player can find himself being accused of treason.
