Highrisers Out Today on Steam

Highrisers Out Today on Steam

Publisher Assemble Entertainment and developer Solar Powered Games are inviting you to the end of the society, as today, the survival-crafting RPG Highrisers is officially launched on Steam. In Highrisers, players find themselves in an apocalyptic cityscape where the streets are filled with swarms of “Dreamers,” AKA humans afflicted with a mysterious prion disease that has left them trapped in an eternal dream.

The remnants of humanity have staked out the top floors of the towering skyscrapers as their last stand against the hordes of hungry sleepwalkers. Survivors must take regular trips to the dangerous bottom floors to hunt for supplies and scrounge for crucial crafting materials — including spare parts for a helicopter that might just be their last chance at finally escaping the terror.

Players will oversee the livelihood of four survivors, each with their own unique abilities. Whether playing as 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. They’ll need every bit of skill and grit when they descend to the treacherous lower floors to scavenge for supplies. Food, spare parts, tools, and weapon materials are all ripe for the taking — if our bold wasteland warriors can avoid the roaming gangs of dreamers the lurk below the sun line. Of course, merely surviving the night is only the first step, and in order to truly escape this city of sleepers players will need to repair the HC-27 helicopter to escape, transport more goods, and fly to safer shores — or rooftops.

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!
