Hidetaka "Swery" Suehiro's new game The Good Life - a papercraft open-world murder mystery in a rural English town, oh and where you turn into a cat or dog at night - will fail as a campaign on crowdfunding platform Fig. He seeks $1.5m but has raised only a third of it, and his time runs out today.
But Swery will not give up. The Good Life will return, he has said, with a new and improved Kickstarter campaign later this year.
"We refuse to give up bringing you The Good Life," Swery wrote in a letter shared on Twitter. "What we plan to do is relaunch the campaign as a Kickstarter, and launch before the end of the year. We will use all of the information we learned from this campaign and make the Kickstarter one we believe can succeed."games
