Operation Backlog Completion 2018
Aug 162017

I have yet to play the cult classic Deadly Premonition or the bizarre-looking D4: Dark Dreams Don’t Die, but I’m intrigued by the next game from their developer.

Hidetaka Suehiro, also known as Swery, has revealed that his next game (with his new studio, White Owls) is a mystery RPG called The Good Life.

The Good Life follows a photographer named Naomi who ends up stuck in a rural English town called Rainy Woods until she can pay off a massive debt.

Oh, and at night, all the townspeople turn into cats.

With that simple premise, The Good Life sounds both interesting and pretty weird at the same time. I like it!

Naomi also turns into a cat at night, so you’ll have to explore and interact with people both as a human and as a cat to find all the clues you need to solve the mystery.

The Good Life will be crowdfunded through Fig on September 2. Since I’ve backed a game on Fig before, I’ve gotten to see the campaign page for The Good Life early. It looks interesting to me, and even though games that have life sim elements are often hit or miss for me, this one sounds like I’ll like the way it works.

(In the meantime, I hope I can make enough backlog progress to stop writing so many blog posts that mention how I haven’t played [relevant game] yet but want to.)

What do you think of The Good Life?
