A horror-themed update or DLC is being teased by the comedy game High on Life. This tease strongly suggests that High on Life will receive new content that will add something new to the experience and probably be tonally a little different from what the rest of it currently offers, even though the game has already received updates that add fixes and new graphics options for players to play around with.
When co-founder Justin Roiland left the company because he was being investigated on charges of domestic battery and false imprisonment, developer Squanch Games promised to update High on Life.
At the time, it was unclear in what form the updates would appear, but now that they have been teased, it is clearer how they will look.
A brief eight-second teaser with the title High on Knife written in what appears to be blood and some spilling off-camera was posted on the game’s official Twitter account.
The fact that the image only contains a title and the caption “High on Life content is coming soon” indicates that the image is meant to be a game update or downloadable content.
Given the theme, one might assume that the new material would be horror-related, but since High on Life is a game that focuses on making ridiculous jokes, it is more likely to be humorous than frightening.

But some people have reacted unenthusiastically to the announcement. No one asked for the content, according to the top comment in response, which claims to speak for everyone.
The one below it criticizes High on Life for continuing to develop this content despite the base game’s lack of proper completion due to a lack of localization, and other comments refer to Roiland’s accusations.
Users who are more enthusiastic about the update speculate that it may be about Knifey, a character who appears early in the story of High on Life and who some feel was underused despite being introduced early in the game.

High on Life may find it difficult to separate itself from Roiland’s involvement, but whatever High on Knife turns out to be will give the game a chance to permanently sever this link.
If it succeeds while demonstrating to be a significant update to the game, it would be encouraging for Squanch Game’s future as it tries to move past a problematic individual who was once very involved in the business.
