Deadly Premonition’s director “Swery 65” Suehiro’s next game, Good Life, has welcomed the publisher. A game about New York photographer Naomi Hayward and her move to the mysterious town of Rainey Woods will be released in the summer of 2021.
Good Life is published by The Irregular Corporation, the publisher of Murder by Numbers and PC Building Simulator. The game was developed by the White Owls Inc. team at Suehiro and is the result of a successful Kickstarter campaign.
The new trailer introduces some of the game’s key mechanics, such as photography and animal makeover. Naomi can turn into a cat or dog during an adventure. Ultimately, this is a detective adventure where Naomi delves into the secrets of the city. Hopefully she will reveal some interesting truths.
It looks a bit jerky in the trailer, but that’s part of the appeal of Swery 65’s work.
The game will be available on Switch, PS4, Xbox One and PC. Thanks to backward compatibility, it can also be played on PS5 and Xbox Series X / S.
Deadly Premonition 2 released exclusively on Switch earlier this year. I received 5/10 in a GameSpot review and criticized it as “open world frame rates are awkward and inconsistent.” Later patches improved things a bit.
