SWERY's freestyle RPG "The Good Life" comes to Switch in Summer 2021, new trailer released

Summer livin'

SWERY has been working hard on The Good Life for awhile now, and it appears there's still some work to be done. Today we've learned that the game is coming to Switch sometime in Summer 2021, so there's still a bit of a wait. At least we get a new trailer to check out! Have a look at that above, and then read a recap for the title below.

The Irregular Corporation (Murder By Numbers, PC Building Simulator) announced that it will publish White Owls Inc.’s upcoming freestyle RPG The Good Life. A brand new trailer was released today showcasing an updated look at the game which was successfully Kickstarted last year by more than 12,000 fans. Developed by SWERY (Deadly Premonition, The MISSING: J.J. Macfield and the Island of Memories) The Good Life arrives SUMMER 2021 on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

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.)

Originally announced as a Kickstarter that quickly blew past its goals after its initial reveal, SWERY and White Owl’s unforgettable narrative is set to take fans on a unique and surprise-filled journey next year on PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch.

Swery shares a development update on The Good Life, reveals the game's theme song and more

A pretty catchy tune!

The official Kickstarter for The Good Life has been updated with a new development blog, and there's pretty fun stuff included. Among the discussion of how the playable dog mechanic works, developer Swery also shared a music video for the game. The video features the game's theme song, which Swery says 'fits perfectly' with the game itself. Give the tune a listen above, and then check out the full dev blog here.
