Where will you be spending the end-of-days? Do you have a cool spot picked out that is fortified, full of snacks, and stocked up on plenty of games? If not, Assemble Entertainment and Solar Powered Games invite you to survive high above the chaos of the streets in Highrisers.
Highrisers is a survival RPG that has heavy crafting elements and procedurally generated vertical chaos (what?) where players take on the role of one of four survivors seeking to live on the upper floors of the city. Something is causing people to become “Dreamers”, society has collapsed, and we all have to scrounge up what supplies we can as we try to repair a helicopter that we ride to safety.
Highrisers is coming to PC via Steam on May 6.
Survive the Collapse of Society on the Rooftops of Skyscrapers in Survival RPG Highrisers, Coming 6th May for PC
Scrounge supplies, craft items, and avoid the swarms of infected “dreamers” in a towering cityscape
In Highrisers, players take on the role of one of four survivors, eking out an existenc e on the upper floors of an expansive skyline. Down below, in the dimly lit lower floors, infected Dreamers begin to gather, increasing in numbers every night when the sun sets and their aggression amplifies. Each survivor brings different skills to the table, which they’ll need to successfully engage in missions to the dangerous lower floors in search of weapons, supplies, gear, and most importantly: parts to repair the helicopter.
Key Features of Highrisers
- Takin’ it to the Top: The city’s streets and lower floors are filled with dangerous infected Dreamers, and the only safe spots left are the top floors of towering skyscrapers. It’s also, conveniently, a great place to park a helicopter…if only it worked.
- Risk it for the Biscuit: In order to survive, players will need supplies, including weapons, gear, and of course, food. Head down to the lower floors and risk the dangers to get the best equipment and ingredients — just watch out for Dreamers and remember, every night they climb higher and higher..
- Four Characters, Four Playstyles: Players can choose from four different survivors, Jes, Ike, Ann and Mo, each with their own unique abilities and backstory. Whether the plucky young Jes with her affinity for tech, or the mechanic Ike and his handy ability to repair machines, each character offers a different personality, a deep skill tree, and an individual approach to survival!
- Procedurally Generated Vertical Chaos: Randomized level layouts encourage multiple playthroughs where each run is different than the last, sometimes you get lucky, other times you get caught by the Dreamers and it’s game over!
