Light, digestible (indie) game reviews.
I found myself restarting my game to get a better start and it was fun each time.
*Based on updated Steam total play time.
Project Highrise is the kind of game I can launch any time I have a few minutes, or a few hours to spare. It appears complex at first, but helpful hints and intuitive design make it very easy to start playing. However, creating a successful, booming skyscraper will still take time and plenty of forethought.
This game is a careful balance of an ever growing skyrise ecosystem, a balance constantly being tipped by the needs of my tenants. The larger the building's population, the more resources they required and expectations they whined, *ahem*, asked for.
"Will you shut up, I'm trying to build you a dang patio!"
I love that I can build a skyrise the way I want: go all business and build a giant office building, rent luxurious rooms, two-floor apartments, and roof-top penthouses to wealthy tenants, or mix it up! It is a blast experimenting with layouts and attempting to create an efficient, well operated highrise.
If you dig simulation and/or tycoon games, then Project Highrise is worth a look, especially for the tower sim fans.
It's a long way to the top...
