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.
