Squanch Games’ High On Life generated a great deal of buzz in the gaming community when it was unveiled at Xbox and Bethesda Showcase 2022. The concept of talking weaponry and beautiful explorable settings were featured in this amusing First-Person Shooter based on an idea by Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland. The first look at this sci-fi adventure game has given us a lot to ponder over, so here’s all we know thus far.
When Will High On Life Come Out?
We now know that December 13, 2022, will be the day that High On Life is officially released. Squanch Games had planned to deliver its new intellectual property in October, but they need “a little extra time to squash some issues” first. That December 13 release date for High on Life is only a few months away now, and when the game does arrive it’ll be available on Xbox Game Pass on day one.
As disclosed in the Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase, Squanch Games has said that the High On Life platforms are set for Xbox Series X, Xbox One, and PC — with availability on both Steam and Epic Game Store. If you’re an Xbox Live Gold or PC Game Pass subscription, you can start playing High On Life right away.
An eccentric story propels the first-person shooter High on Life. In this game, you play as a recent high school grad contending with an alien invasion of “get high off mankind” aliens. The co-creator of Rick and Morty and Solar Opposites is behind it, so it stands to reason that the story and absurd humor will be major draws, but that doesn’t rule out fun gameplay.
High on Life was advertised as an “action-adventure comedic Metroidvania first-person shooter” during the teaser. There’s no telling how pivotal each of those words will be in the final product, but we can get a feel for the game’s mechanics from them.
First of all, as the player advances through the game, they will get access to additional weapons and skills that will be useful both in combat and in exploring the game’s more hidden corners. And, of course, humor is supposed to play a big role.
The closed nature of High on Life has also been verified. Rather, you’ll progress through a series of predetermined levels that provide a somewhat linear experience driven by the game’s wit and visual splendor. However, you will have some say over which sequence you complete these stages in.
Amazing tales from the edge of existence
In case we needed further convincing that this is an out-of-the-ordinary case, here it is. The plot of High on Life is very similar to that of Rick and Morty in that it has extraterrestrial aliens, odd technology, lots of crass humor, and a healthy dose of science.
No future exists for the player character, and there is no motivation to do anything. As soon as an alien drug mafia invades Earth and starts puffing down humans, all that leisure time goes down the drain. The Hyperbong, which gives aliens a taste of what it’s like to be human, is advertised with images of humans confined in cages.
Therefore, we must form an alliance with a race of intelligent blades and weapons, save their companions, assume the identity of a bounty hunter, and take on the leaders of an alien drug cartel. The information is overwhelming. Still, Justin Roiland and Squanch Games have never disappointed us, so this is to be expected.
We’ve only seen two trailers for the game so far: the one shown at the Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase 2022, and a behind-the-scenes video shown at the end of the Extended Showcase. The first trailer is a little under two minutes long and features plenty of gameplay footage, some humorous asides, and the game’s striking visual design.
Meanwhile, the making-of trailer provides an in-depth look at the creation of the game alongside extensive commentary.
