Cracking Bananas / Squanch Games

If you look around YouTube, you can find actual speedruns of High On Life where players use this faster route to complete the mission—and each time they do the dialogue plays. Though funnily enough, most speedrunners are moving so fast through this part that they trigger the next bit of dialogue before the cute speedrunning joke is even finished.

High On Life is filled with this kind of fourth-wall-breaking shenanigans. At one point the game lets you wait around for a full hour complete with extra dialogue and videos while you wait. It’s this type of humor and content that seems to have helped make High On Life popular, with it being one of the biggest hits in the history of Xbox Game Pass, even surpassing bigger games like Minecraft, Halo, and Forza last month. Just be careful you don’t get trapped in Space Applebee’s.
