High On Life Is The Next Wacky Game From Rick And Morty's Justin Roiland

Talking guns? What will they think of next?


Justin Roiland of Rick and Morty fame is back with studio Squanch Games for his latest project: High on Life. As revealed during the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase, it's a first-person shooter that stars a high school graduate who uses a talking gun to defend Earth against an invading alien force who wish to use humans as a new drug.

As a bounty hunter, you'll be able to collect upgrades and find even more talking guns to destroy the aliens with, all while working both with and against a group of NPCs. The enemy aliens are led by someone named Garmantuous. There's also a gun voice by JB Smoove, so, you know it's going to be a good time.

The guns themselves are some of the most prominent characters, offering "their own narrative take" on events and featuring different personalities, according to the announcement. Their faces bear a little resemblance to the Oddworld characters, as well as the Crazy Frog mascot from the early 2000s. Among the locations you'll visit are a jungle and a city located inside an asteroid, among "other dynamic and changing worlds" that are home to aliens and wildlife.

High on Life is scheduled to release later this year for PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S. On PC, it will be available via both Steam and the Epic Games Store. Squanch Games previously developed Trover Saves the Universe and Accounting+.
