The creator of the comedy shooter High on Life and co-author of Rick and Morty, Justin Roiland, explained why he decided to release the game on Game Pass. He said he had studied the issue thoroughly and noted that the service was a “powerful tool for broad outreach”.
Roiland added that his indie studio Squanch Games will also benefit from the service for future Games:.
The Steam shooter achieved good sales at launch. The game ranked second in the weekly chart, and peaked online at nearly 11,500 users.
