Highwater is an adventure game witch turn-based strategy elements. It was developed by the Demagog Studio team, known for such projects as Golf Club: Wasteland and The Cub, and was published by Rogue Games.


Highwater unfolds a grim vision of the future, in which, as a result of the Great Climate Catastrophe, the entire Earth has changed beyond recognition. Between the desolate War Zone and the fortified Alphaville, where the richest have found refuge behind gigantic walls, the flooded Hightower region spreads. The main character of the game is Nikos, who wanders this dangerous world, heading to Alphaville, where he hopes to find rescue (rumor has it that the inhabitants of this place intend to escape to Mars). Along the way, the protagonist must fight for food and eliminate enemies, but also encounters numerous friends who decide to join him.

Game mechanics

Highwater gameplay is built, so to speak, on two pillars. The first is exploration of the game world, where we observe the action from a third-person perspective (TPP). Nikos and his entourage traverse Hightower and other regions aboard a small boat, moving from island to island. On dry land, meanwhile, we not only meet other survivors and gain valuable resources, but also have to fight the enemies we encounter. The second pillar of the gameplay are the battles, which take place in turn-based mode. While watching their progress in isometric view, we give orders to Nikos and his team. On the battlefield we use a variety of weapons and items that give us an advantage over our enemies.

Technical aspects

Graphics in Highwater is made in a colorful, cartoonish style. The game takes place to the accompaniment of the Highwater Pirate Radio station - various broadcasts make our long journeys more pleasant and allow us to better feel the post-apocalyptic atmosphere.
