Critic Reviews for The Good Life

Weird, good natured, and pretty funny with it, The Good Life stands apart, like most SWERY games.

A surprisingly generous and deep life sim from the mind of Swery, but a frustratingly creaky one too.

A hugely disappointing mess of a game that magnifies all of SWERY's worst tendencies and fails to compensate in terms of the unengaging characters and script.

This surreal, multifaceted experience has its charms; but technical and storytelling snags that hold it back

The Good Life is a charmingly silly RPG with a little too much daily grind.

The Good Life does many things, but they never felt like they coalesced together into an experience that could stick with me. I certainly enjoyed parts of it, and some of its stranger moments really do land as big, enjoyable peaks. But there’s a lot of valley in-between, and while I arrived in Rainy Woods eager for a pleasant countryside escape, I didn’t feel like making a return trip after the credits had rolled.

The Good Life is another flawed yet fascinating gem from Swery65. It's a weird world full of unforgettable characters, and even when the gameplay grows a bit tiring or repetitive, it's worth all the photo quests and fetch missions in the world to see that next bonkers twist in the story.

‎The Good Life is a play by Swery, for better and for worse. His personality emanates and shares particularities: outdated technical and mechanical problems, but with that magical aura. If you like the author, jump in without fear. Important: it is not translated into Spanish.‎
