  1. Why is there a dedicated "frolic" button? Is there an actual purpose to it later?
    It’s amusing seeing her skipping around with a fucking nasty frown on her face, she’s such a bitch.

  2. What are good BBC tv series with a similar atmosphere to this game? I watched a couple of them already. I didn’t like Lark Rise to Candleford, but I did like the older adaptation of Pride and Prejudice and Emma.

  4. This is Swery’s best game overall. It’s a really comfy mix of Majora’s Mask, exploration, investigation, photography, and gardening. You can take it all at your own pace. The first hour is pretty slow to get going though before it really gets going in terms of mechanics and quirky characters. There’s an awful lot more to this game than it appears at first.

    DP1 was an awful game in lots of respects, but the story, characters, music, and vibe all added up to make lightning in a bottle. The Good Life isn’t that, but the gameplay is much more enjoyable than any of his games up to this point. If you’ve ever actually enjoyed the moment-to-moment gameplay of any of his past titles, you’ll enjoy this.

  5. do i need to rush at all or can i just take my own pace in the game and spend all my time farming and doing side quests until i want to move on?

    • There’s a couple missions that are timed but they aren’t long. And it’s timed as in "you must go here tonight". No clue what happens if you don’t show up

        Considering DP had the same sort of stuff and they just yelled at you for not appearing before having it happen anyway it’s probably like that.

    • If you loved and I mean actually loved the first game then the ending is kind of worth it. The rest of the game is garbage and don’t expect a decent port.

    • I love York so I was just glad to see more of him and the shifting perspective between future and past often worked really well and got me excited to keep going and see more. Unfortunately the combat gameplay is boring, the puzzles all solve themselves, and the time it takes to actually improve your stats far outweighs any time saved in the actual gameplay so doing the side stuff doesn’t feel rewarding at all.

    I’ve watched 10 minutes of "gameplay" and I’m bored to death

    Is it just animal crossing but without animals?

  7. Oh did it finally come out? I might buy it when its on sale but Swery is an actual hack unlike most people Ganker loves to put down so I won’t expect much.

  8. DP was an accident. The man hasn’t made a single good game since. Or prior for that matter.
    I don’t know how people still had faith in him after DP2.

  9. It’s pretty comfy but a lot of its mechanics are not explained off the bat, some of which are pretty crucial (eg managing your stamina/health/wakefulness meters). So it’s an overwhelming introduction to the game.

  10. Did anyone else lose the daytime background music? Don’t think I’ve heard it play since the first couple of hours of the game.
    Every other piece of music seems to be working fine, and I find it hard to believe that daytime is the only instance where we don’t get any bgm.

  11. It’s a good game if you like English culture. The black and non-white people don’t fit the rural British aesthetics, but I pretend they’re just very tanned.
    I wish Story of Seasons games had this aesthetics minus the diverse characters.

  12. >actually works on windows 7 but doesn’t because of a shitty VP9 codec exclusive to windows 10 so a shitty cutscene crashes at the beginning if you don’t have it
