Playism and White Owls have come out with an initial 1.5 update for The Good Life. Aside from game difficulty adjustments, it includes significant bug fixes.

Below are the full patch notes for The Good Life’s version 1.5 update:

System: Switch
Release date: October 15, 2021
Developer: White Owls
Publisher: Playism

Journalist Naomi Hayward’s life has been consumed by enormous debt. The Morning Bell, the newspaper that she works for, has a unique way of settling things – that being to send her abroad to uncover the mystery of the “Happiest Town in the World,” Rainy Woods. Naomi is not too keen on the idea of moving to such a small sleepy village, and she makes that displeasure known upon her arrival, but work is work, and in order to keep her stomach full she’ll need to adapt to her new environment and learn to get along with her new neighbors. Though warned to spend her first night indoors, Naomi doesn’t heed the warning and instead stumbles into quite the scene: all the residents of Rainy Woods have turned into cats and dogs with the arrival of nightfall, but that’s not the main focus of this adventure. Instead, soon after our arrival, there is a strange death in Rainy Woods. This mystery becomes the central point in the plot for The Good Life, and we will be diving in to take a look what this venture has to offer.

The Good Life finally launched on various platforms this week, including Switch – and we now have plenty of gameplay. In the 30-minute video, fans can see how the debt repayment RPG looks on the console.

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.
