Paranoia: Happiness is Mandatory Gameplay Preview at Rock Paper Shotgun

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.


There were a couple of text-based previews of Paranoia: Happiness is Mandatory published recently as well, at Den of Geek and Hardcore Gamer. Oddly, both Rock Paper Shotgun and Den of Geek claim that the game will be out in October, the latter even specifically saying October 3rd, but this has yet to be formally announced by the developers. They're going to be at Gamescom this week, so I guess it'll happen then.
