Rick and Morty creator Justin Roiland’s new game ‘High on Life’ has possibly revived an old Paul Walker movie. Fans love it!
‘High on Life’ is a brand-new FPS from the mind of acclaimed voice actor Justin Roiland, co-creator of the ultra-popular animated series Rick and Morty. While the game has received favorable reviews from critics who praise the game’s witty writing, humor, and unhinged biopunk-themed adventures, the game also features full-length feature films. No, we’re not kidding!
Perhaps most notable is the inclusion of an old American sci-fi movie, Tammy and the T-Rex, starring the late Fast and the Furious star Paul Walker and Denise Richards. Being one of Walker’s earlier works, it’s understandable that many fans might not even know of its existence… until now.
Accordingly, the film was first released in 1994 and was originally intended as an R-rated comedy horror but had several scenes cut out to appeal to a more family-friendly audience. Several years later, in 2019, the unrated version, entitled Tammy and the T-Rex: Gore Cut, was released and subsequently licensed to be included in the High on Life video game, seemingly ‘for the lulz.’
Similar to the many seemingly senseless adventures depicted in Justin Roiland’s Rick and Morty series, this latest content addition is nothing more than a massive gag, serving no purpose other than to amuse fans.
That said, if not for the game’s out-of-this-world premise revolving around an alien cartel wanting to “get high off humanity,” the addition of full-length films is surely a major selling point (especially for gamers who might not find High on Life’s drug-themed premise amusing).
The movie can be watched in its entirety in the game’s lounge on the television. It’s also worth noting that other films are available, too (and no, you won’t earn any achievement for watching one or more of these movies). These confirmed titles include Blood Harvest and Demon Wind, neither of which I’ve ever heard of.
