The Good Life: All Shrine Locations Guide

This guide will tell you where you can find all 32 shrine locations in The Good Life. They are scattered throughout the world, and you can use them for many purposes, such as fast travelling and making cat and dog offerings. You'll have to venture beyond Rainy Woods and play Naomi's story to get them all.

The Good Life All Shrine Locations Guide Cover

The Good Life features a large world for you to explore, with the town of Rainy Woods and beyond. Scattered across the map are shrines. These tall stone structures can prove to be very useful, saving you a lot of time travelling – for a modest fee. They can also be used to make offerings to cats and dogs, affecting your allegiance to either animal. This guide will list the names and locations of all 32 shrines in The Good Life.

Each shrine is named, usually after the area they’re in or a nearby landmark or location. Some shrines you cannot reach easily. You may have to open up a gate to get past. Opening gates costs £10. Also, some areas might be out of reach early on in the game’s story. Therefore, you’ll have to play through the story in order to reach all the shrines. Although the shrines are already marked on the map, you’ll get an idea of where exactly they are.
