The Good Life

Game director Hidetaka Suehiro has officially relaunched his latest project The Good Life on Kickstarter. In the vein of many of Suehiro’s works, The Good Life appears to be quirky; chiefly due to the fact that the characters inexplicably transform into cats or dogs at night. 

The Kickstarter has a goal of $647,910 (approximately 68 million yen) and plans to release the title on Steam and PlayStation 4. The title is a joint development effort by Suehiro’s studio White Owls and another team led by Yukio Futatsugi (Phantom Dust).

The story revolves around a journalist named Naomi as she works in a sleepy European village called Rainy Woods. In efforts to pay off her mounting debts, she takes on odd photography jobs and begins to interact with the townspeople. The game promises to focus on a “debt-repayment system” for players to progress as they slowly unraveling the mysteries Rainy Woods may hold.

Suehiro, or Swery as he is more commonly referred as, attempted to crowdfund the title in 2017 on the platform known as Fig, but missed his 1.5 million dollar target by almost 60 percent. Undeterred, the creator promised that the game effort was still moving forward and would likely take shape on another crowd sourced site. The Kickstarter campaign is scheduled to end on May 4.
