One thing that jumps out from this new footage is how much time you’ll be spending exploring the strange smalltown as a feline or doggo.

For more information about the game, here’s the general overview courtesy of an official press release that we received today:
The Good Life is a captivating adventure game in which you play as Naomi, a New York-based photographer who has just arrived in the small British town of Rainy Woods with a specific job at hand – to discover the truth behind this place known as the “happiest town in the world”. Race against the clock tracing multiple leads and solve mysteries as a human, a cat, or a dog! Getting to the bottom of this mystery will require you to cook, eat, sleep, shop, farm, and explore the town, taking on photography jobs and other more “unconventional” quests.
