High On Life is an upcoming single-player first-person shooter Metroidvania game developed and published by Squanch Games, a company founded by Justin Roiland, co-creator of the popular franchise Rick and Morty. The game is looking to launch on Windows, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S on December 13, 2022.
High On Life takes place in the future, where humans are taken hostage and being used as drugs by an alien gang called the G3 Cartel. Players must try and do whatever they can to save the human race with the help of four different weapons and a plethora of movement abilities unlocked through the in-game store.
The game features four actors and comedians voicing the weapons: Justin Roiland as the pistol Kenny, JB Smoove as the shotgun, Gus, Betsy Sodaro as Sweezy, and Tim Robinson as Creature. Design director Erich Mayr describes High On Life’s game style as a blend of Blade Runner and The Muppets during a stream.
