5 Hidden Secrets Many Still Haven’t Found In High On
Evidently linked to the Rick And Morty franchise, Squanch Games have lucratively filled a missing gap within the gaming industry. Contrasting the likes of other developers, this critically-acclaimed title draws its focal point on making their players laugh, demonstrating their firm take on brining comedic value to games.
Whether it be the witty humor, frequent breaking of the fourth wall, or, inevitably, the abundance of easter-eggs, fans have rapidly flocked to this altered Sci-Fi RPG (role playing game), eager to fully immerse themselves. However, despite this enthrallment, many players have nonchalantly strayed from various hidden secrets, of which, hold significant reference to pop culture in the real world.
Although a relatively current title, High On Life don’t shy away from older pop culture references. Their innovative and creative nature, with regard to referencing movies, TV shows, and video games, stretch far beyond the perceived idea of a hidden secret, as the majority of titles seclude themselves within a smaller realm of covert mysteries, commonly relating to their own franchise.
This Sci-Fi extravaganza often journeys through parallel universes, giving reason as to their intricately placed Breaking Bad reference. Honoring Vince Gilligan’s award-winning series, Squanch Games prudently placed a pizza among one of Blim City’s rooftops, meticulously referencing Walter White’s explosive outburst during the renowned Caballo Sin Nombre episode. Despite being a hidden secret in which can only be viewed, the few players that didn’t slip past it were able to witness an astounding easter-egg, instantly recognizable by devoted fans of the hit series.
4/5 Sandworm – Dune
Within High On Life, the overriding element of Sci-Fi culture is imminently reiterated, from the talkative Gatlian gun selection to the wacky interactions with alien NPC (non-player character). Although not a direct reference, as opposed to the rooftop pizza in Blim City, Squanch Games’ cunning outtake of a Sandworm from the Dune franchise further enhances this prominent theme within the beloved title.

Poised to intentionally jump scare the player, this Sandworm takes on a rather soft side compared to the ghastly beast within the acclaimed novels. Once deep into the Sandworm Territory, an earthly rumble will displace the player, yet once emerged, a weak, high-pitched whine can be heard from the monster, mocking its ability to threaten anyone. Once again, this hidden secret is for mere viewing purposes, restricting the player from interacting with the Sandworm, however, some fans may inadvertently stray away from this ingenious easter-egg.
3/5 Flower Thrower Art – Banksy
In terms of hidden secrets, High On Life is certainly making a name for itself within the industry. The viral essence this title holds is that of a prominent one, often shared on countless social media platforms, assuring its placement within the gaming spotlight. Referencing an icon, in relation to pop culture, Squanch Games have designated Banksy as one of their concealed secrets.

Infamous for his spectacularly rebellious work, Banksy has brandished his artistic capabilities throughout various parts of the world, inevitably inspiring a generation of like-minded individuals. Despite this, High On Life‘s nod to his art is a rather crude one, however, it pairs with the overall witty nature this cherished title offers. Depicted through the throwing of flowers, Squanch Games replaces this with a phallic object, guaranteeing this hidden secret to riddle the player with laughter.
2/5 Splinter Cell Night Vision – Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell
Voiced by the widely admired Justin Roiland, fans of the Rick And Morty franchise have collectively picked up on his numerous appearances, oftentimes through a narrator’s position. Being the creator of the esteemed title, his personal love for easter-eggs are apparent, however, his honoring reference to Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell could easily slip past dedicated fans.

Briefly presented, this Splinter Cell reference appears within a crash course mission, posing even more of a chance players might miss this hidden secret. While learning the title’s control system, the player is ordered to crouch through a tight air vent, in which night vision goggles are activated. Alongside this would be the momentary presence of a miniscule Sam Fisher icon, directly pairing the two references to the eminent stealth franchise.
1/5 Full Movie Experience – Demon Wind
Argued by many fans as the most inventive hidden secret gaming has ever seen, Squanch Games went to lengths other developers would have never dreamed of, purchasing the rights to an entire movie.
