White Owls and Swery’s The Good Life received a hearty development update on September 25, 2020. The post on the Kickstarter detailed abilities when playing as a dog, looked at icons for characters’ faces, and even shared a new song and music video. The video was uploaded to their official YouTube today, and the eponymously titled song appears to be the game’s main theme.

As a dog, players can memorize characters’ scents to track them down. Characters in the world of The Good Life will each have unique daily schedules, so this ability is sure to come in handy for quests. Additionally, newly developed face icons will help players remember which character’s scent they’ve currently memorized. Animals will play a big role in The Good Life; players will transform into dogs or cats, and we even saw sheep-riding earlier this year.

The music video uploaded today, also titled “The Good Life,” is performed by the band The Bad Lives. The song was composed by Shota Nakama and Jason Soudah, with Soudah penning the lyrics and taking lead on vocals. Full credits are in the video’s description, and fans will be delighted to know that Swery himself is part of the song’s chorus. Each member’s part in the video appears to have been filmed remotely.

White Owls and Swery’s The Good Life was funded on Kickstarter and is planned for a 2020 release on the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC via Steam.
