High on Life, the upcoming comedy FPS from Rick & Morty co-creator Justin Roiland and his development studio Squanch Games, has announced its voice cast and features Rick & Morty graduates, stand-up comedians, sketch comedy legends and one celebrity video voice actors and many other fun and talented people.
Roiland plays your first talking gun, the gun-like Kenny (who sounds a lot like Morty). JB Smoove from Curb Your Enthusiasm voices shotgun-like talking Gus. Comedian Betsy Sodaro plays Sweezy, the Halo Needler-like weapon, which you can catch in our exclusive 12-minute gameplay video earlier this week. Tim Robinson from Netflix I Think You Should Leave plays Creature. Sarah Silverman program co-star Laura Silverman voices Lizzie, while MadTV alumnus Dave Herman plays Gene, the alien in your house who gives you your bounty hunter missions. The bloodthirsty Knifey is played by YouTube cartoonist Michael Cusack. Other notable names in the cast include Kevin McDonald, member of the Kids in the Hall troupe, stand-up comedian Maria Bamford, Nathan Drake voice actor Nolan North, Solar Opposites co-star Thomas Middleditch, celebrity video game voice actor Jennifer Hale and Tara Strong and more. Take a look at some of these characters in the concept art gallery below.
High on Life will be released on December 13th for PC and Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One consoles, including day-one availability in Xbox Game Pass and PC Game Pass. We got our first real look at the gameplay back in August at Gamescom – where it totally blew up. We’ll have more exclusive coverage throughout October as our IGN First “cover story” on High on Life continues.
