Watch the trailer for SWERY’s cat person murder mystery game The Good Life

The Good Life Logo SWERY

In the UK, we have this show called Midsomer Murders. It’s a weird aspect of British culture – the fictional county of Midsomer is a gorgeous countryside area where people like to murder each other. Upcoming RPG The Good Life is sort of that – set in a rural English village, a young girl has been murdered, and you’ve got to find out what happened. There’s a catch: everyone is a cat. 

Watch the trailer above for a bit more context, I guess.

In case you want more games to look forward to, here’s our list of the upcoming PC games to get excited for.

Ok, so, now that we’re on the same page and have both seen the new trailer above: that’s a hell of a concept, isn’t it? It is also entirely unsurprising that SWERY, designer and writer for Deadly Premonition, is the mind behind this one.

The tone is wild here, contrasting the murder – in a clearly Ophelia-styled pose – of a young girl with what almost seems like a cat dating sim once everyone transforms. I have no idea what to think.

This is the first trailer since the game was revealed just a week ago. In case you want to support the game with investments or backing, a Fig campain will launch in 11 days. Presumably, this is the start of promotions and advertising before that campaign goes live.
