We asked a lot of people: what would you do to a clone of yourself?

Over the past several weeks I have sent a lot of interesting people who work in the games industry an email containing the following scenario: "You enter a room. The door locks behind you. From a door opposite another you enters. This other you is a perfectly identical clone, created in the exact instant you entered the room, but as every second ticks by they…

Taste Swery’s The Good Life in prototype demo

To Tom and Barbara, the good life means escaping the rat race to farm in their suburban garden and pash. To Kanye West, the good life feels like Atlanta, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, or summertime Chicago. To Deadly Premonition director Hidetaka "Swery" Suehiro, The Good Life is his next game about rural murder and mystery. Swery and his White Owls studio are currently trying…

Swery on the cats and countryside of The Good Life

Hidetaka “Swery” Suehiro, director of cult favourite Deadly Premonition, recently relaunched a crowdfunding campaign for his studio's latest project, The Good Life. It’s a life sim murder mystery in a sleepy British village, where the inhabitants have a habit of turning into domestic animals. Once a month, everyone changes into a cat or dog, allowing you to roam the village at night and visit previously…

Deadly Premonition director’s The Good Life returns to crowdfunding

Part of the reason I'm not a betting man is because I'm terrible at predicting odds. I figured The Good Life was a sure thing when it last surfaced: A unique premise from the quirky director of a cult hit game, with a satisfying chunky art style, a solid (or so I thought) pitch video and the most important thing of all for instant internet…

The Good Life to try crowdfunding again on Kickstarter

Maybe it was overly optimistic, but I was sure that surreal shape-shifting, debt-repaying, murder-sleuthing adventure The Good Life would have been funded within a week or two of its announcement. Deadly Premonition and D4 director Suehiro 'Swery65' Hidetaka is a bit of a wild-card admittedly, but he's never less than interesting. Sadly, 'interesting' isn't enough of a hook to raise $1.5m, and so the Fig…

Hidetaka 'Swery' Suehiro has split from Access Games and founded his own studio to make The Good Life [Fig page], a murder-mystery daily life RPG set in an English village -- the happiest in the world, the locals will tell you -- where everyone turns into…

The Good Life is… Midsomer Murders plus cat capers!

A while ago I announced that I would love for Penelope Keith to start doing the tutorials in games like Call of Duty [supporter post link]. Imagine how quickly you would improve with Margo Leadbetter shouting "Here’s how to use a variable grenade, you ghastly little child" across the training ground. When Alice pointed out a game called The Good Life a week or so…

Deadly Premonition director’s The Good Life visits a town where people turn into cats

We're off to a small English town where everyone turns into cats at night with the first game from the new studio of Deadly Premonition director Hidetaka 'Swery' Suehiro. The Good Life [future Fig page] is a "daily life RPG" with a dash of mystery, roaming the town as a human by day and by night exploring places only cats can go. I adore nosing…

Deadly Premonition creator Swery starts own studio, White Owls

Hidetaka 'Swery' Suehiro, the mastermind behind bestworstbest game Deadly Premontion, has started his own studio. He left longtime home Access Games in 2016 after being away for a year's convalesce, and apparently he's not going back. His new studio is White Owls, based in Osaka. Though their first game is still under wraps, Swery says they'll be making more weird, scary, dreamy, funny games. That's…
