The Good Life will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC via Steam this fall—a delay from its previously planned summer release window—and publishing will be taken over by Playism from The Irregular Corporation, Playism announced. It will cost $29.99.
Game was originally kickstarted back in 2018


Naomi Hayward finds herself far from her New York home. Out of her depth and drowning in debt, she is commissioned by The Morning Bell newspaper to uncover the mystery behind Rainy Woods - a rural English town considered to be the 'happiest in the world’. With her camera at the ready she starts her investigation but soon finds that the town - and its wonderfully quirky residents - are hiding many secrets. Not least, why they transform into cats and dogs at night. Caught up in the town's enchantment - Naomi must use her new found animal skills to uncover the truth about Rainy Woods.




Use your camera to get to the bottom of Rainy Woods' mystery by taking photographs for The Morning Bell newspaper to complete commissions. They'll pay you for your trouble but it seems you have a large debt outstanding already. Perhaps it is easier to take photos capturing the hottest trends on social app Flamingo to satisfy your fans? That ought to earn you a pretty penny and help you chip away at your debt.




Transform into a cat or dog in order to unlock and use unique skills! Expand your area of exploration as you jump and climb nimbly around town as a cat. Or track down villagers with your keen canine sense of smell.




Your earnings from commissions, Flamingo and part-time jobs around town will provide you a decent living. Why not delve into the delights of Rainy Woods? Grow vegetables in your garden? Expand your cooking repertoire? Explore the wilderness? Join the locals for a drink at the pub? Or help them out and get to know them a little bit better. The days are yours to fill with whatever you please, but remember - cultivating a good life is a balancing act!




See what Rainy Woods has to offer! Set out to explore the surrounding landscapes, unlock waystones and camp sites to expand how far you can travel - or perhaps just riding a sheep across the rolling hills will bring you the most joy!

Going to start playing Deadly Premonition 1 very soon. It's my first SWERY game so this one will wait a bit. But this one looks interesting, too!

Cool, Enjoy! I know you already know this but ...
DO NOT EXPECT AAA EXPERIENCE!

SWERY is more like Yoko Taro in that he has great ideas, a great sense of style and characters but the execution of the game engine itself varies from clunky to downright broken. In my case i'm swept along by the stories, characters, environments and general oddness of the games and this tends to overwhelm my frustrations with the game engine itself.

I can't wait for The Good Life to release. I expect bugs and jank and oddness and charm out the wazoo!
Bring it!

That reminds me i need to start Deadly Premonition 2, oh lordy i've heard that's quite the technical ride.

I spent half an hour to fix the controller issue and saw the opening cutscene for a few times... so yes, I am expecting crashes and jank. Bring it! :longswordblob:

The game comes out tomorrow. There is no talk about it. No reviews. Nothing. :(

I have played the demo and it was a bit disappointing. Hopefully it was just the tutorial.

It looks like it'll be on Game Pass day 1. I'll give it a fair try.

I'm not bothered. I'm not expecting AAA values, production and gameplay. I'm expecting a SWERY game with a bit of jank, some gameplay issues but a ton of charm and something different from the usual stuff. I'm also expecting a lot of people to dislike it because they're caught up in the SWERY fan hype and have odd expectations.

I'd love SWERY to get his Yoko Taro moment and have a big budget game and studio behind him though.
