White Owls’ The Good Life by game creator and director SWERY has so far reached $274,397.00 of its $1.5 million crowdfunding goal on Fig. With 14 days left in the campaign’s engines, news has come that there will be two different ways of playing The Good Life: as a cat or as a dog.
In a recently revealed trailer, White Owls details the story of The Good Life. It is about a photographer named Naomi who moves from a big-city lifestyle to the rural town of Rainy Woods. Rainy Woods is known as the happiest town in the world, but there’s something strange going on here. After a young girl is murdered, Naomi decides to investigate the town further and she discovers it holds an odd little secret. At night, the town’s residents turn into… dogs?
That’s right, in addition to a version of The Good Life where the residents of Rainy Woods turn into cats at night, the game will also feature a dog version that will allow Naomi to follow scent trails, dig holes, find different items, interact with townspeople differently, and will even change some elements of the story.
Depending on the version of the game that you choose, the online multiplayer aspect of the game will change slightly as well. As a cat, you could scratch a neighbor’s post. As a dog, you could urinate on a neighbor’s front door.
The Good Life is in the midst of a crowdfunding effort right now. It is expected to release for PC sometime in Q3 2019 with console announcements to come sometime in the future. For more information on the game, you can visit the Fig campaign page.
