The Good Life delayed to Fall

Updated: Jun 8

The Good Life will be released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC via Steam this Fall and publishing will be taken over by Playism from The Irregular Corporation, Playism announced.

“Journalist Naomi Hayward is drowning in debt and is at the end of her rope. Having accepted a request from The Morning Bell newspaper to uncover the mystery of a small English town, Naomi finds herself far from her home in New York, in Rainy Woods—known as the happiest place in the world."

As soon as she starts her investigation, Naomi realizes that the town and its eccentric inhabitants are hiding all sorts of secrets. She will discover an inexplicable phenomenon in which the townspeople transform into cats and dogs as night falls… Then, as just she’s looking into that particular mystery, a murder occurs.

Naomi herself eventually becomes able to transform into a cat or dog. Turn into a cat, and gain the ability to jump and climb all over town to explore; or transform into a dog, and use your acute sense of smell to track the town’s residents. Use your respective abilities as a human, cat, and dog wisely to more easily solve the various mysteries and incidents you’ll face.

Naomi’s debt is enormous but as a journalist, she can earn extra money by taking photos of Rainy Woods at the request of The Morning Bell and the town’s residents to repay it. But there’s more, if she can manage to snap photos of whatever happens to be trending on the social media site “Flamingo” and increase her number of followers, she just might be able to earn enough money to make life in this small town that much easier.

Enjoy Life in a Small Town! In Rainy Woods, as long as you’ve got the money, free and easy life is yours to be enjoyed!

You can grow vegetables in your garden, increase your culinary skills, explore the plains or share a drink with your fellow townspeople at the local pub. Stay fed, get lots of sleep, keep yourself looking nice and clean, and enjoy daily life in Rainy Woods.

Rainy Woods is full of various spots, as well as a variety of events ready to be discovered. Explore the areas around the town to unlock shrines and camping grounds, expand your field of mobility, and enjoy the comfortably open world. Getting on a sheep and riding around the hills is just so much fun!
