The Good Life Kickstarter inches towards Switch stretch goal on final day
04 May, 2018
Deadly Premonition creator’s The Good Life has hit its funding goal on Kickstarter. With mere hours left, it now hurtles towards its Switch stretch goal.
If you backed Swery’s next title on Kickstarter, it looks like you will indeed be living The Good Life in the future. After a failed crowdfunding attempt on Fig, the game has succeeded in its Kickstarter campaign. With the assistance of Japanese indie label UNTIES, the title will finally see the light of day.
However, the suspense hasn’t ended quite yet. It has been announced that the game will receive a Switch port if the campaign’s total funding hits at least ¥88,000,000. As of the time of this writing, the game has made ¥77,549,018, and there’s less than 8 hours to go. Will the game make it?
Additionally, an AMA livestream session with game director Swery has been scheduled. It will go live a few hours before the campaign deadline. To find out when exactly, check out the game’s official Kickstarter page here. The livestream will also count down the final hours of the game’s Kickstarter campaign.
Have a look at the Kickstarter trailer below:
The Good Life is developed in collaboration between White Owls and G-rounding. White Owls is headed up by Swery, the director of Deadly Premonition. Meanwhile, Yukio Futatsugi, known for his work on Panzer Dragoon and Phantom Dust, is the chief at G-rounding.
The teams describes their game as a “debt repayment daily life RPG”. You play as Naomi, a New York-based photographer who visits a British town that claims to be the happiest town in the world. Once there, she discovers the town’s secret: at night, all the town’s residents turn into cats and dogs. Naomi herself can turn into either, depending on player choice.
