High on Life is a Fever Dream from the Mind of Justin Roiland

A new entry in the Rick and Morty canon?

If you’ve always wanted to play as an intergalactic bounty hunter set in the Rick and Morty universe, you’ll finally get a chance with the latest creation from Squanch Games, High on Life. 

What is High on Life?

In High on Life, you play as an aimless stoner battling against invading alien forces. It’s up to you, along with a rag-tag group of talking weapons, to traverse across solar systems to hunt down Garmantous and his cabal of twisted lackies. Talk about gaining some meaning in life. 

With colorful visuals and fleshed-out characters as charismatic as Mr. Meseeks, High on Life is a raunchy and action-packed first-person shooter from the twisted mind of Justin Roiland. 

Watch the trailer for High on Life below:

Does High on Life Take Place in the Rick and Morty Universe?

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you probably already know about Justin Roiland, the creator of the wildly popular shows Rick & Morty and Solar Opposites. His properties have spawned fan groups worldwide that regularly create, at times, outlandish theories based on his shows. 

Though there has been no official confirmation that High on Life and Rick and Morty takes place in the same universe, many easter eggs in the trailer refer to his other properties. It’s more than possible that Roiland will confirm the connection in the future, however.

Even though the trailer for High on Life makes no direct connection to Rick and Morty or Solar Opposites, if some of the voices sound familiar, it’s for a good reason. Much like Morty and Rick, many of the characters in High on Life are voiced by Roiland himself. 

Regardless of whether this is an actual tie-in to his previous IPs, we can’t wait to get schwifty with High on Life this holiday season.

When is High on Life Coming Out?

High on Life is releasing on December 2, 2022, just in time for the holiday season.
