Hidetaka Suehiro, better known as Swery, has a loyal fanbase that adores his off-the-wall titles - Deadly Premonition and Deadly Premonition 2 are among the best known, of course. While the actual game quality can be hit or miss in his releases, his creative and oddball storytelling certainly brings intrigue to each new project. Next up will be The Good Life, which is certainly one to watch.
Following a successful Kickstarter campaign way back in 2019 it was initially planned for PC, then Switch was announced as a platform for a 2020 release. It then slipped to Spring 2021, and now PLAYISM has taken over publishing duties and it has a new target release window of Fall this year. It's being developed by Swery's team at White Owl, and also Grounding Inc. – a team 'led by Yukio Futatsugi, creator of Panzer Dragoon and Phantom Dust'.
As you can see in the trailer above, this 'debt repayment RPG' looks rather bonkers - it's also a murder mystery in which you can transform into a dog or cat; that's likely only the start of the weirdness.
Are you a big Swery fan that plans to give this a try?
Yep, definitely looking forward to this. It’s gonna be janky af but brilliant at its core.
How many times do we have to wait for this game?
I am looking forward to it but these delays that are happening make me not looking forward to it a bit
@anoyonmus If Deadly Premonition 2 is anything to go by I'd much rather Swery & co take their time with this one. Let's hope The Good Life is worth the wait because it's looking to be quite the interesting adventure.
I hate anything that calls itself 'quirky'. It's like those girls who say "OMG I EAT NUTELLA STRAIGHT FROM THE JAR! YAAAASSSS! THAT ISN'T MY PARENTS CAR! IT'S MUM'S TAXI! I'M SO QuIrKy!"
sorry I just needed to get that off my chest lol
@Jackpaza0508 Your profile gif is definitely quirky, though XD
I must say, I'm really intrigued by this game. It looks pretty interesting!
@Jackpaza0508 I had a valley girl voice in my head as I read this for some reason LOL.
Looking forward to this! Also, pretty great reference to Ophelia.
Kinda getting Dogs Life ps2 vibes from this
I don't understand this game and that's probably how Swery likes it.
@Mitchtwd I would bloody love that on switch, so many memories of that game!
I have been psyched for this game since it was first announced. I think my wife will love it!
Needs Physical release...
Please God be better optimised than DP2. Man I love Swery and DP2 was worth it for me for how the narrative all came together in the end however I would like to also enjoy playing the game.
Always a fan of games you can't predict. I'll be a very happy girl when this drops.
