Genre-Bending RPG “The Good Life” Coming to PC, Consoles in October

Indie game publisher Playism recently announced that the genre-bending title The Good Life is scheduled to release on 15 October via Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbone, and Steam PC.

Co-developed by Japanese studios White Owls and Grounding Inc., The Good Life blends elements of adventure, RPGs, and life simulator. The game boasts the unique style of White Owls’ Hidetaka “SWERY” Suehiro (Deadly Premonition, D4: Dark Dreams Don’t Die), where players interact with the strange townspeople of Rainy Woods to solve a mysterious murder.

Here’s the official breakdown of The Good Life from Playism, followed by the game’s latest trailer:

The Good Life is a captivating adventure game in which you play as Naomi, a New York-based photographer who has just arrived in the small British town of Rainy Woods with a specific job at hand – to discover the truth behind this place known as the “happiest town in the world”. Race against the clock tracing multiple leads and solve mysteries as a human, a cat, or a dog! Getting to the bottom of this mystery will require you to cook, eat, sleep, shop, farm, and explore the town, taking on photography jobs and other more “unconventional” quests.
