One of the Xbox and PC exclusive games scheduled for release at the end of the year’Life High‘ is a production of Squanch Games, the development studio founded by Justin Roiland, co-creator of ‘Rick and Morty’ and ‘Solar Opposites’. For Mikey Spano, one of the team leaders, the game is like “Metroid Prime” but fun! , the title will not be a large and interconnected world.
“We had a small team constraint and we couldn’t create a big interconnected world. So we created a structure in this game, like in Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, where you have a ship and a base in our game. It’s a house.” Spano explains. Predicts ‘High in Life’ various planets and settings accessible via base -hub- in a house. “These planets will be connected to the house, but they are not connected to each other.”
Sci-fi full of irreverent humor
In High On Life, players play the role of a bounty hunter on a mission to stop an alien invasion on Earth. Oddly enough, these monsters are not only taking over our planet, but also using humans as drugs. This is where the arsenal part comes to another level: “You can get an arsenal of sci-fi weapons. But the weapons in High On Life are also intelligent life forms from another planet. They have their own faces and can speak.”
As these weapons have special abilities and distinct personalities, in addition to sharing their ideas of what’s going on, even weaves his thoughts and ideas into the story. But it’s not just about talking. Trips to a number of different planets are promised, where we will meet strange aliens and hunt down a reasonable number of enemies.
Weapons with special abilities and different personalities
The director also reveals that the game will be based on different basic moves that the user can combine. “The idea was: you have to put all the moves together to play well. And it goes through so many different possibilities, so we ended up with a player-first system,” he says. “Great if you can understand combos but you don’t have to use themSpano says.
