Justin Roiland’s talking gun FPS finally won me over

When High On Life took the stage at this year’s Gamescom Opening Night Live show, I was reminded that not enough shooters try to make us laugh. They’re so serious, and not even just the competitive multiplayer ones! Whether it’s over-the-top demon murder or “grounded” tactical military murder, rarely do you see a game that plays with the inherent absurdity of dropping bodies by the dozens.

Justin Roiland and the folks at Squanch Games are making a rare comedy FPS that is unmistakably the work of the Rick and Morty creator: your guns are aliens who talk incessantly about their neurotic worries and violent fantasies, often breaking the fourth wall to bluntly deliver a punch line.
