The Good Life

The Good Life is set for release in Summer 2021, White Owls and Grounding have announced. The Irregular Corporation is also now confirmed to be acting as publisher.

We have the following overview for The Good Life:

White Owls has offered up a new look at The Good Life. In a recently-published video, we’re able to see how the life sim RPG’s visuals have been updated. We’ve included it below.

The Good Life launches on Switch later in 2020.

We previously reported that the developers of The Good Life, Hidetaka “SWERY” Suehiro’s new game, were experimenting with a Switch version of their game. It seems like they’re confident that they can turn these expriments into a proper port – the currently running Kickstarter campaign for the game just added a stretch goal for a Switch version of the game. However, this goal will be pretty tough to reach, as the Switch version will be funded should the Kickstarter reach $800,000, but it’s currently sitting at about $660,000 with only 36 hours to go in the campaign. It seems like SWERY and his team are aware of this, however. Here are some statements about the Switch version from the campaign page:

The Good Life is a new game from SWERY and Yukio Futatsugi, along with their teams at White Owls and Grounding. SWERY, otherwise known as Hidetaka Suehiro, directed Deadly Premonition, D4: Dark Dreams Don’t Die, and more.

We’ve actually covered The Good Life on the site previously. The team hoped to fund its game through Fig last year, but the project did not reach its goal. The Good Life then recently returned on Kickstarter, though this time without Switch support.

Hidetaka Suehiro – otherwise known as Swery – has created cult classics like Deadly Premonition and D4: Dark Dreams Don’t Die. At his new studio White Owls, he’s officially unveiled his next game at PAX West today called The Good Life.

The Good Life is said to be a “debt repayment life simulation RPG”. You’ll play as Naomi, a photographer from New York who has found herself in debt after a scandal. Once she accepts a new job, Naomi moves to a rural English town that has a strange secret. People become cats at night, and it will be your job to find out why that’s happening.
