The Irregular Corporation will publish The Good Life in summer 2021 for PS4, PC, Nintendo Switch and Xbox One, developers White Owl and Grounding Inc. have announced. The project is the mastermind of Hidetaka Suehiro, aka Swery, who was behind the cult classic Deadly Premonition.
The Good Life Has A Release Date Target
The Good Life has had a long development cycle, having originally taken to Fig to raise an ambitious $1.5 million. This failed, so Swery headed to Kickstarter with a reduced funding goal, and the game was successfully crowdfunded in May 2018.
However, The Good Life has been delayed numerous times since, having originally been due for release in 2019 and then 2020 before attracting its new summer 2021 window today.
