Survive the Collapse of Society on the Rooftops of Skyscrapers in Survival RPG Highrisers, Coming Soon to PC

“I have the high ground.” —Obi-Wan Kenobi

Publisher Assemble Entertainment and developer Solar Powered Games are inviting you to survive the end-of-days high above the chaos of the city streets in Highrisers, an urban survival RPG heading to Windows PC via Steam on May 6, 2021. In Highrisers, society has collapsed due to a mysterious affliction that causes people to become “Dreamers”, light-sensitive somnabulators. To stay safe, the remaining survivors have taken to the relatively protected rooftops of the city’s towering skyscrapers. They’ll need to find supplies, craft gear, and repair the helicopter that promises to fly them away from the danger and into a safe, new world.

In Highrisers, players take on the role of one of four survivors, eking out an existence 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.

Check out the Highrisers gameplay trailer below:


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!


Developed by Solar Powered Games and published by Assemble Entertainment, Highrisers will launch on Windows PC via Steam on May 6, 2021. Add the game to your wishlist by visiting the Steam Store page and learn more at the official website.
