During today's Nintendo Indie World presentation, Hidetaka Suehiro, aka Swery, announced that The Good Life will launch for Nintendo Switch in 2020. The game is also coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Steam.
Described as a 'debt-repayment RPG', The Good Life was originally announced in 2017 with a planned Fig crowdfunding campaign that ultimately failed, but was followed by a relaunched successful Kickstarter campaign in 2018. The project has been in the works for a while; we wrote up our impressions of a demo back during PAX West 2018. The game involves paying off a debt and solving a murder mystery in a town where the inhabitants turn into cats and dogs at night.
