Swery’s The Good Life will now have a dog version too

Matt Sayer 29 September 2017 NEWS


Dog lovers rejoice!

The Good Life, the quirky adventure game in the works from Deadly Premonition creator Swery65, is taking an unsurprisingly unique approach to increasing its mass appeal.

Originally pitched as a cat RPG set in a town where all the residents turn into purring felines when the sun goes down, Swery and his studio White Owl have today announced that they're making a second version of the game specifically for dog lovers – and those with virtual cat allergies, I guess?

This alternate version of the game will play much the same as the original, with the townspeople shape-shifting into shaggy dogs instead of sleek cats at night. Protagonist Naomi will have access to different abilities depending on which version of the game you play. As a kitty, she'll be able to climb to higher vantages and squeeze through tight gaps, while as a dog she'll be able to dig holes and track odours.

Swery has also hinted that certain parts of the story may change depending on which version of the game you play. There's also going to be a full-on online multiplayer mode where you can visit other people's towns, and both the cat and dog variants of The Good Life will be completely compatible with each other.

The Good Life is currently slated for a Q3 2019 release on PC, with console versions still up in the air.
