Swery’s murder-mystery RPG, The Good Life, finally has a release date

The Excellent Lifetime, which is getting designed by White Owls and led by Swery (creator of Fatal Premonition), and Yukio Futatsugi, (creator of Panzer Dragoon and Phantom Dust) at last has a release day.

As per a new push release, the peculiar “day by day existence RPG” will get there on Xbox, PlayStation, Change, and Computer on October 15 – in excess of 3 decades immediately after the game met its authentic group-funding concentrate on. The Very good Daily life uncovered by itself a new publisher and obtained a new release window again in June, suggesting that the title was just about prepared to launch, just after a slew of delays.


Swery himself phone calls the recreation a “every day lifetime RPG”, and in numerous strategies it appears to be and appears like Animal Crossing with a aspect dish of murder mystery. Which is good by us.

In the match, you enjoy as journalist Naomi Hayward who is drowning in credit card debt. To assistance pay back the bills, she has accepted a request from The Morning Bell newspaper to “uncover the thriller of a compact English town” called Rainy Woods.

In this peculiar township, the locals turn into pet dogs and cats at evening for some explanation, and there is a murderer on the loose in the town, much too. While it all seems bucolic and idyllic (you can expand greens in your yard, brush up on culinary techniques, check out, and go to the nearby pub and have drinks), there is certainly a darker facet to the city, way too.

Naomi herself gains the capacity to remodel into a cat or pet, and she will have to have to use her canine/feline powers to aid her investigation: turning into a cat will acquire you the capability to bounce and climb, and reworking into a pet dog will let you to use your acute perception of scent to observe the town’s residents.

It appears just as off-the-wall and creatively obtuse as Swery’s other games then – colour us intrigued.
