'Highwater' Also Comes to Nintendo Switch, PS5 And Xbox Series X|S - Screens & Trailer

Highwater is a story-driven journey in a post-apocalyptic flood urban environment with boat driving, walking and dialogue that leads into isometric turn-based combat.

Earth has flooded, and the planet is doomed, but there’s still time to enjoy the view. Guide Nikos and friends through the flooded world of Highwater and beyond in this turn-based strategy adventure game, where they’ll have to fight for their chance to escape.

Highwater sees players struggling to survive a post-apocalyptic world in which the polar ice caps have melted and the oceans have drowned civilization. Players must explore what’s left of the flooded environments; scavenge for food, supplies and weapons; solve puzzles; make friends; and fight off hostile forces in a hybrid experience that blends adventure and turn-based strategy.

Amid the Great Climate Catastrophe, the flooded region of Hightower has become a kind of safe zone between the two dry regions: the nearly global ravaged land of the War Zone, and the fortified city of Alphaville, where the ultra-rich live behind giant walls.

With life on Earth becoming untenable for humans, and rumors of an escape to Mars floating around, Nikos begins a perilous journey, picking up friends along the way. First to Hightower, then beyond to cross the impenetrable border of Alphaville, battling insurgents and stealing food along the way. Will Nikos and his friends manage to sneak into the rocket in time?


Key Features:

  • Rich, Story-Driven Adventure: Embark on an adventure as you try to escape the flooded region between the War Zone and Alphaville to safety. Along the way, the story will unfold through new allies you meet and the environment you explore.
  • 3D Exploration & Discovery: Players will be able to freely drive in their boat to different islands in this flooded world to encounter danger, interact with fellow citizens, and experience beautiful scenery.
  • Turn-Based Combat With A Twist: Take on your enemies in a classic turn-based game system, but in order to come out alive, you will need to rely heavily on interacting with the environment. Use objects and items around the grid system to defeat your foes.
  • Listen To Great Radio Tunes: Highwater Pirate Radio is the key source of not only original music but a vocal commentary on your ticket to survival.

Highwater is coming to Nintendo Switch, PS5, Xbox Series X|S and PC (Steam) in Summer 2023.
