“Everyone at Kalypso Media is excited to be releasing our first title on Nintendo Switch,” notes Simon Hellwig, founder and Global Managing Director of the Kalypso Media Group. “We tend to not think about all the work that goes into building and maintaining the homes and offices we live and work in, and Project Highrise: Architect’s Edition is an engaging simulation of all the challenges and creative freedoms that this brings. The game has been a massive success on PC and mobile, and we’re looking forward to our Switch, PlayStation and Xbox fans constructing and managing the buildings of their dreams this fall.”
About Project Highrise: Architects Edition
From the moment you break ground, every decision rests with you. 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 clamor 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.
