'The Good Life' Gets Release Date - Trailer

The Good Life is a daily life RPG set in a happy town where something strange happens at night, and only cats can access certain secret paths, roof tops and attics.

It’s part murder mystery, part life simulation where all the townspeople operate on a 24-hour life schedule, and at night, under the moonlight, they take to the streets as cats.

Why does this happen? Is this why everyone in town is so happy? No one seems to remember what they do at night.

Say what????

An RPG-style town filled with fun activities and fascinating people, The Good Life offers a twisting, mysterious story swirled around a murder.  At first glance, Rainy Woods looks like a perfectly normal country town...but within this town lurks a bizarre secret and a deadly mystery. Rainy Woods is a small town in Northern England surrounded by forests. Nestled in abundant nature, stone houses built in the Middle Ages still stand beside one another, with townspeople who look out for each other, love their families, work hard, and enjoy nightly drinks at the local pubs. Each character has a unique personality and lives out a unique life. Events change depending on the time of day, weather, and season. Even though they live in a game world, they worry, suffer, have fun, love, and hate as much as any real person. It is the type of small English town the exudes charm, except Rainy Woods has a big secret…in the dark of night, all the villagers turn into cats.

Players star as Naomi, a photographer straddled with debt who moves from the New York City to Rainy Woods. As an étrangère, players feel both alienated yet strangely comfortable. Players must make friends, solve mysteries, and become emotionally invested! Naomi must make a life for herself in the happiest and most bizarre town in the world. To pay off her debt, she must send out reports on these villagers and the town they live in. Naomi photographs different things and uncovers the town's secrets, while paying off her debt.

The Good Life is set to launch for PC (Steam), Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch on October 15, 2021.

But, The Good Life is also a mystery tale in the vain of Raymond Chandler or Conan Doyle.  Players will make a tragic discovery in the town’s river…the brutally murdered body of a young girl, her heart pierced by an ancient, medieval sword. Naomi originally came to Rainy Woods to uncover the secrets of the happiest town in the world and use her reports to pay off her debt. But when she discovers the body of the wheelchair-ridden Elizabeth, it sets her journalist heart ablaze. And so, while she continues to pay off her debt, she also decides to find out the truth about Elizabeth's death.
