Small-Town Detective Thriller ‘The Good Life’, SWERY’s New Life Sim Indie RPG-Adventure On Track to Release in 2021

Equipped with an old camera, very stylish sunglasses, and a faux leather mini backpack, Naomi sets out to bring light to Rainy Woods’ dirty secrets
TOKYO, JAPAN, August 26, 2021 – The Good Life is being co-developed by Hidetaka “SWERY” Suehiro, director of Deadly Premonition, and Yukio Futatsugi, along with their teams at White Owls and Grounding. The developers are excited to unveil new screenshots of the game and an ENG trailer for fans as it makes its way into the final stages of development. The Good Life is backed by publisher PLAYISM, and it’s set to release on Steam, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch later in 2021.

Uncover the truth about Rainy Woods – the small, boring town that Naomi refers to as “Hell on Earth”
Upon beginning her investigation, Naomi – camera in hand – soon realizes that the town and its eccentric residents are hiding all sorts of secrets. She discovers an inexplicable phenomenon in which the townspeople transform into cats and dogs as night falls. Then, just as she’s looking into that mystery, a murder occurs.
The Good Life’s captivating adventure story will invite you to explore a large open world, following clues in conversations, tracing for pointers to uncover the town’s dirty secrets. You must eat, sleep, shop (using your skills as a professional photographer to earn money), and learn the arts of crafting, farming, and time management!
  • Explore the vast and sprawling town of Rainy Woods
  • Solve mysteries as a human, a cat, or a dog!
  • Take photos to repay your debt
  • Unlock and try new meal recipes
  • Plant, grow, and harvest your own crops
  • Discover new clothing and other items
  • Save up money and renovate your house!
SWERY and Yukio Futatsugi are set to deliver a highly engaging, funny and bizarre experience that will keep players hooked until the very end. Similar to SWERY’s previous titles, players can expect plenty of strange encounters, odd characters, and a charming and absorbing story set in a fantastic world – the ‘happiest’ town, Rainy Woods.
The Good Life is releasing on Steam, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch later this year. Don’t forget to wishlist the game on your favorite store.
