Project Highrise – February 2016 Architect’s Notes

The desire to reach for the sky runs very deep in our human psyche.

This month, we’re taking a quick break from our usual posts to announce some exciting news about Project Highrise.

Exciting News #1
We’re proud to announce that we’re teaming up with Kasedo Games, a division of Kalypso Media, to release Project Highrise. If you’re not familiar, Kalypso is the company that brought us the lovely and wonderful Tropico series of games. While this doesn’t mean that El Presidente will have an office in your tower, it does mean that we’ll have a lot of help from them as we work toward releasing Project Highrise this summer.

You can learn more more about Kasedo and the other games they’ve released or are in the pipeline by visiting their website at www.kasedogames.com. They’re on twitter at @KasedoGames. You can also see the press release about our partnership here.

Exciting News #2
We’re going to be at GDC in San Francisco next month to demo the game. If you’re in the media business and would like to spend some time with us and see the game in vivo, contact Lindsay Schneider at Kalypso for an appointment. And to all of our Bay Area friends, we’ll see you in a few weeks!

Exciting News #3
Project Highrise has got a logo! Eddie Einikis, the artist that created all of the offices and other tenants in the game also created this amazing logo for the game. Pretty neat, right?

We’ll return to posts about the ongoing development of the game next month when we’ll delve into the beginnings of the game’s campaign mode.
