New teaser trailer shows off upcoming construction & management sim
Kasedo Games and Somasim are pleased to reveal the teaser trailer to upcoming skyscraper construction and management sim, Project Highrise.
From the moment you break ground, every decision rests with you. You will decide on the height, width and shape of your fledgling skyscraper whilst taking into consideration all the local building rules and regulations. Then the hard work starts.
In this deep and multi-faceted management sim, you will create a vertical ecosystem from a wide variety of units, including offices, retail outlets, restaurants, bars and many more. Your Highrise must become the go-to destination in the city for corporate activities, shopping and socialising or face financially uncertainty and an almost certain tenant exodus.
Keep your tenants happy, and your skyscraper will thrive, but fail them and they will be sure to let you know what they think. Rent too high? Too much noise? Bad smells from neighbouring units? Poor transport links? You must balance it all if you are to be a success.
- Deep and complex simulation of a modern skyscraper.
- Huge variety of tenants with their own unique characteristics, from restaurants, to offices, retail stores, or residential apartments.
- Open sandbox play with several difficulty levels and starting conditions allowing you to build your dream skyscraper towering above the surrounding city.
- Campaign mode that tests your skill at building a successful highrise in challenging scenarios.
- Test your management mettle by keeping up with your buildings diverse population and their ever-increasing demands.
- Hire specialised consultants to increase your building’s curb appeal, operational efficiency, and pull with city hall.
About Project Highrise
Your job as the architect and developer is to build world-famous skyscrapers that will be the envy of the entire city, masterpieces of art and engineering. But a skyscraper is more than just steel and glass, it’s an intricate ecosystem, full of people that live and work in the building. They become a complex machine that needs your steady hand to keep it running smoothly and efficiently.
As the architect you must coordinate the construction of everything – every wall and wire, every office and apartment. As the building owner you must keep your tenants happy – and paying rent on time. As a savvy developer you must keep an eye on the bottom line and invest in the future. Succeed and you will reap the rewards of a prestigious address where everyone will clamour to live and work. Fail and you will watch tenants leave in disgust, taking their business elsewhere and leaving your reputation in tatters.
Will you create an exclusive office highrise that attracts business leaders from around the world? Will you construct luxury apartments in the sky, penthouses for the elite and playgrounds for the famous? Perhaps greed will get the better of you and you’ll build a tenement building that trades tenant happiness for loads of cash? All these choices and more are yours. Success is entirely in your hands.
