Hidetaka “SWERY” Suehiro’s project, The Good Life, previously had a crowdfunding campaign at Fig that got 45% of its goal of $1.5 million back in October 2017. With only $682,864 from 3,478 backers it wasn’t enough for the green light it, was back to the drawing board for the crew.
After a temporary setback, SWERY’s company White Owls along with G-Rounding “exhaustively analyzed and re-examined” the campaign and initial plan, and made “many critical adjustments.” The companies announced that it will relaunch the campaign, but this time on Kickstarter, and it’ll start on March 26, 2018.
