Deadly Premonition‘s video game director and writer SWERY is back with another attempt at finding funding for his bizarre mystery game: The Good Life. A funding campaign is currently being run on Kickstarter. A prior funding campaign for the game on FIG sadly ended in failure.
Solve a murder in the happiest town on Earth in The Good Life, by SWERY
The Good Life is a debt repayment daily life RPG co-developed by SWERY’s White Owls Inc. and a development team led by Yukio Futatsugi, the creator of Panzer Dragoon and Phantom Dust. Check out the trailer below.
You play as Naomi, a journalist from New York who moves to a backwoods British town called Rainy Woods in order to pay off her massive debt. The only way to get out of debt is to take pictures of happenings in the town and report on them. It’s a rather strange town, so there’s plenty of weird goings on to report back on. For instance, once a month everybody in the town transforms into either a cat or a dog – including Naomi.
It sounds like a bizarre game filled with mystery, horror, and plenty of craziness. It also looks lovely. The game has been given a visual overhaul since the failed funding campaign on FIG. If the Kickstarter campaign is successfully funded, it’s going to be released on PC and PlayStation 4. Here’s hoping that they can hit the funding target this time. It should help that the target is lower this time: $647,910.
