The Weapons in ‘High on Life’ Are Portrayed by Several Notable Voice Actors and Comedians.
If you’ve ever watched an episode of Rick and Morty, then you know that part of the series’ charm comes from its improvised voice-overs and irreverent dialogue. Apply that same kind of zany wit to a video game, and you’ve got the likes of High on Life. The new FPS game follows a human rebel who fights against an alien invasion while armed with a variety of talking weapons. The game comes from Squanch Games, a studio founded by Rick and Morty creator Justin Roiland.
The living weapons in High on Life, labeled Gatlians, speak to you constantly as you wield and use them. Some even provide some meta-gaming commentary depending on how you use them. The game also features a variety of human and alien characters to fill out the game’s sprawling world.
