High on Life Release Date



High on Life is an FPS filled with absurd humor. The latter is not surprising, considering the fact that it was developed by the Squanch Games studio, a team co-founded by Justin Roiland - one of the creators of the popular animated series called Rick and Morty.


High on Life presents a grim vision. Earth has been invaded by aliens who use humans as... drugs. The main character of the game is a freshly graduated from high school, devoid of ambition and plans for the future. Unexpectedly, the protagonist becomes a galactic bounty hunter and his task is to stop the invaders led by evil Garmantuous. Our hero is not alone, as he is constantly accompanied by his guns and cold weapons, which are... intelligent and very talkative life forms. The various instruments of murder have their own faces and personalities and often share their observations and comments on the events in which they take part. In addition, there are various funny characters scrolling in the background.

Game mechanics

In High on Life we observe the action from a first person perspective (FPP). The adventure leads us through various planets and other vast locations scattered in space, among which we can find a jungle and a city built on the surface of an asteroid. In each of them there are tasks to perform as well as hordes of aliens which we have to kill. We do it with the help of an extensive arsenal, which includes a pistol, rifle, shotgun, knife and more sophisticated tools of murder, such as a grenade launcher that shoots... small "grenade babies" (however, as the grenade launcher itself says - its "babies" die quickly, but there is no need to worry, because new ones are born very quickly). Apart from the standard fire mode, all the givens have special abilities. As we progress, we gain more powerful weapons, which allows us to face more and more challenges.

Technical aspects

High on Life features colorful graphics made in a pleasant to the eye, cartoon style (however, the game is quite brutal). During the game we constantly have before our eyes the faces of the weapons held in our hands, which not only comment what is happening on the screen, but also make various faces.
