“We really leaned into horror with ‘High On Knife,’ so it only made sense to launch it around Halloween,” said Squanch Studio director Mike Fridley in a press release. “The downloadable content brings more goop, nastier body horror, creepier bosses, and all kinds of strange new stuff to the world we established with High On Life.”
Here is an overview of the downloadable content, via Squanch Games:
“High On Knife” gives Knifey his chance to shine (and stab) on a fully realized new planetary environment loaded with all-new characters, hazards, and spooky surprises.
Squanch released an all-new stop-motion teaser trailer that highlights the DLC’s creepy vibes and showcases the new gross-out trading cards you can collect—created by the legendary Joe Simko, the illustrator known for his work with [ICONIC TRADING CARD IP].
“High On Knife” introduces a pair of brand-new talking gun characters, too. Harper, voiced by Sarah Sherman (Saturday Night Live), is an ex-military pistol who’s trying to come to terms with her traumatic past. And then there‘s B.A.L.L., which is a pinball-inspired gun operated by a coordinated group of little guys who are doing their best. Players have to explore a creepy new sci-fi setting while being hunted by Mux, a mysterious new boss voiced by the incomparable Gabourey Sidibe (American Horror Story, Precious).
