Cats. Murder. An English village.
Hidetaka Suehiro, better known as Swery, revealed his latest game at PAX West, The Good Life, will be partially funded by a Fig campaign.
The Good Life is described as a “debt repayment life simulation RPG.” Set in a bucolic English village, the residents of the town take to the streets at night, where they turn into cats. It’s also equal parts life-sim and murder mystery, according to developer White Owls.
So, pretty par for the course for Swery, who last month said the The Good Life inherits “the spirit of Deadly Premonition,” which he describes as his “most representative work.”
The Fig campaign aims to raise $1.5 million USD to “achieve Swery-level greatness.” Interested fans can invest in shares, or “traditional reward-based backing.”
White Owl is Swery’s independent studio, formed all the way back in January of this year. Swery founded it shortly after leaving Access Games last year.
