Swery‘s The Good Life has a new launch window, and a new publisher. The Irregular Corporation — who also published Murder By Numbers earlier this year — will be bringing the game to Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and PC next Summer.
The Good Life was crowdfunded back in 2018, raising more than ¥80 million. Looking back at earlier Kickstarter updates reveals that Unties was originally named as the game’s publisher. Despite that initial announcement, The Irregular Corporation are now handling the game’s release on all platforms.
A minute long trailer has been released in conjunction with the announcement, giving us some updated gameplay for The Good Life. It looks a little rough at the moment, though that’s not particularly unusual when compared to previous Swery games like Deadly Premonition.
An overview of The Good Life via The Irregular Corporation:
In The Good Life, players take on the role of New-York based photographer Naomi when life’s events lead her to the quaint, rural English town of Rainy Woods. On the surface, it seems as if all of the villagers are living the good life. But as Naomi begins to pay off her debts with photography and odd part-time jobs, she finds that not everything is as it seems in the ‘happiest town in the world.’ Shapeshifting residents are only the beginning of the mystery that Naomi must unravel in The Good Life…
Use your detective skills and master the art of investigative photojournalism to capture the secrets of Rainy Woods. Keep your wits about you as you take on quirky-but-satisfying part-time jobs to make ends meet, but be careful not to overdo it – you’ll catch a cold if you don’t practice self-care. Save money and live off the land by growing your own garden, make friends (and possibly enemies) and begin to live the good life in Rainy Woods – especially after you acquire your very own trusty sheep to ride around town. (Yes, really.)
