Hidetaka Suehiro A.K.A. SWERY the creator of the cult classics, Deadly Premonition and D4: Dark Dreams Don’t Die are going to release his newest mystery RPG titled The Good Life. And to achieve that, SWERY working with Fig will open a crowdfunding campaign to go live on September 2nd, 2017, right after the planned reveal at this year’s PAX West convention. A funding goal is set for $1.5 million, and you can find the funding campaign here.
Here’s is The Good Life rundown and SWERY’s message via Fig.
Welcome to The Good Life. The game is set in Rainy Woods, the self-proclaimed “happiest town in the world.” Here, you’ll play as Naomi, a photographer from New York who finds herself stuck in this small town in rural England. She’s found a way to pay off the massive debt she’s accumulated, but she soon discovers that the town is hiding a very bizarre secret…
At night, all of the town’s residents turn into cats. Why does this happen? Is this why everyone in town is so happy? No one seems to remember what they do at night. Naomi is here to find out what’s going on in Rainy Woods.
The townspeople aren’t the only ones who get to roam around at night as a cat – Naomi does too! Once the sun sets, you’ll get to explore Rainy Woods and collect clues and important items connected to the events of the story. The town becomes a very different place at night, as certain secret paths, rooftops, and attics can only be accessed by cats. Take a peek at the campaign page for more gameplay details and be sure to leave your feedback in the comments! Also, we’ve lowered the minimum investment amount – Fig Game Shares for The Good Life will be $100 per share!
And now, a word from SWERY:
Hello everyone. I’m SWERY, the director of The Good Life.
Last November, I created my new studio, White Owls, and this is our first official announcement. From the bottom of my heart, I feel so proud to be announcing this game with Fig, a next-generation publisher.
This game will inherit the spirit of Deadly Premonition, my most representative work, but it will also feature a brand new style of gameplay. It’s a mystery game based on the framework of a ‘daily life RPG.’ I’m positive that the happiest town in the world and the most bizarre townspeople in the world will capture your heart and pull you deep into their world. Please support The Good Life and help us bring this game to life.
I’m sure this game will make a lot of people happy!
I Love You All!!
