The Good Life, despite having a hard time raising cash on crowdfunding sites, still has life left in it yet as its creator, Hidetaka ‘Swery’ Suehiro, is determined to turn his dream into a reality.
Speaking with Gamespot at Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, Swery said:
As a creator, I have this innate desire to make something. When I look back on the original crowdfunding campaign for The Good Life, we recognized we made a lot of mistakes. It would be a missed opportunity to just walk away from that as once time experience, and because we have that passion we’re willing to come back to the table and state that this is the thing we’re doing better, and these are the things we’ve learned. And another thing is that online community has been really inspiring for us, and they’ve really pushed us to move forward with this project. Even though the last campaign didn’t succeed, it still excited a lot of people to the point where we’re people are sending us pictures of their cats and dogs on twitter. I just feel very compelled to take this to the finish line.
Now that the Kickstarter campaign is live, Gamespot reports that Swery are now more confident The Good Life will get funded. Furthermore, they have set the Kickstarter goal at $650,000, as opposed to their $1,500,000 Fig campaign goal.
