      Barker brings the two strands of the book together through her investigation into musical as well as language theory, her interest both in the buzzing, multiplying, uncontrollable meaning of words and the visionary realms that lie beyond them. George's To the happy few book, Arthur's next destination out of Wellington Wells. Make sure to maintain your Stamina levels, just in case. Permadeath was added to try to implore a sense of danger to the player knowing that any action could lead to the end of the game, while the random generation would create tension as the player would need to relearn the layout of the town each time.

Optionally, the game allows the player to enable permadeathrequiring them to restart the game should the player-character die.

      With the assistance of various characters, including Sally and Ollie, Arthur works his way through the districts uncovering certain truths along To the happy few book way. Its inhabitants—referred to as "Wellies"—wear white "Happy Face" masks, which were created for the purpose of forcefully molding the wearer's cheekbones into a smile, so that the wearer compulsively smiles as a result. At this point Arthur Hastings will be asked to Play the Bongos. They hand on good genes, rear their children in homes rich in human capital, and provide the best of every educational opportunity. In the same way that the narrative tumbles through the most abstract fields while glorying in the physicality of the book as a printed object, this chaotic patchwork of fact and fantasy, philosophy and pastiche, satire and spirituality reveals itself to be tightly disciplined. I felt like I could relate to him as a person, as much as anyone really can with the snobby upper crust of a stagnating monarchal society.

      The first woman will suggest asking the Holy Yam what should be done with it. He plays a tape of his final but unreleased broadcast, which shows him going insane as he realizes the city's dire situation and remembers his daughter, Margaret. Wonderfully imagined and expertly brought to life through stunning images. Arthur eventually makes his way into the Parade District, where he learns from the Bobby guarding the bridge that they will be closing down all access to the district in the near future. From there, he continues to escort Arthur across the Britannia Bridge. Many of the mechanisms through which the protected class defends itself are sources of a sense of precarity.
