High On Life official artwork for Justin Roiland's comedy focused FPS game

After messing around with comedy-focused VR games for a couple of years, Justin Roiland's studio Squanch Games have now decided to attempt something a bit more ambitious - an FPS game that blends together fast-paced action and Rick and Morty inspired off-the-wall humor. And you know what? They've done an excellent job at it!

On the gameplay front High On Life is a fairy competent shooter with some fun mechanics to mess around with, though it's nothing too special in the grand scheme of things. What really sets it apart, however, is the sheer amount of creativity that has gone into designing its world, characters and even the weapons. Something insane or stupid happens pretty much every couple of minutes, so even though the gameplay itself might get a bit repetitive after a while, there's very little time to think about any of that because the boss has just shoved a small furry thing into his brainbox!

If you're curious what all of this nonsense looks like in action, and especially that last part, allow me to share with you one of the trailers. Have a gander:

The one big downside to High On Life is the price tag, as 50€ is a bit steep for a fairly short (~9 hours) singleplayer game. So if you're planning to dive in yourself after hearing about all of the hype, make sure to first familiarize yourself with Justin Roiland's style of humor. If you like his stuff, chances are you'll have a blast with High On Life as well. If you don't, then I'm afraid you'll probably go insane from simply listening to your weapons endlessly babble on and on about random stuff.

Whatever your taste in humor may be, you can learn more about High On Life, as well as check out some of the player reviews, over at Steam. Enjoy!
