[Watch The Good Life Release Date Trailer]
In The Good Life, you play as journalist Naomi Hayward, who has just relocated from New York to the small English town of Rainy Woods. Drowning in debt, it’s time for Naomi to get snap-happy in her new job as a photographer at The Morning Bell newspaper, where she’s been tasked with solving an inexplicable phenomenon that transforms the townspeople into cats and dogs at night. With development teams led by Hidetaka “SWERY” Suehiro and Yukio Futatsugi, you can bank on The Good Life to deliver a highly engaging, funny, and bizarre experience that will keep you hooked until the very end.
Solve mysteries as a human, a cat, or a dog! Playing as a cat, you can jump and climb all over town to explore; while playing as a dog, you can use your acute sense of smell to track the town’s residents. Think strategically about your abilities to help solve the various mysteries and incidents you’ll face.
Work as a reporter, and make it big as a social media influencer
It’s not all about running around town with the cats and dogs—Naomi also has to make enough money to survive and pay her debts. Do this by taking photos of Rainy Woods for the newspaper and by keeping an eye on the hot new social media platform “Flamingo.” If you snap photos of whatever happens to be trending, you just might be able to earn enough money to make life in this small town that much easier.
Live your best life
Grow vegetables in your garden, learn how to cook, explore the outdoors, hang out with townspeople at the pub and more! You’ll need more than cat-naps and doggie bags to survive and solve mysteries in Rainy Woods. Get lots of sleep, stay well-fed, keep yourself looking spiffy, all while enjoying small-town life.
Don’t be a scaredy-cat
Get out of your comfort zone if you want to succeed! There’s a wide, open world out there. Explore the town to expand your field of mobility, discover important locations, experience an array of events, unlock shrines and campgrounds. Interact with everything around you, even if it means hopping onto a sheep for a ride through the hills!
The Good Life is available today on Steam, Xbox One, Game Pass, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch on October 15, 2021. Don’t forget to wishlist the game on your favorite store.
