High on Life, a new shooter from Squanch Games, has a little secret. His in-game TV includes over 20 of his animated shorts by Justin Roiland and his friends, not to mention four fully licensed feature films.

You’ll get to see all of this in action when the game arrives a little later, on December 13th. did.
