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.

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.
  • 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 specialized consultants to increase your building's curb appeal, operational efficiency, and pull with city hall.

  1. Not Great
    by dnoth, USA - Jul 18th 2017

    Despite its appearance as a potential successor to SimTower, it is not anywhere near the same caliber of game.

    Project Highrise is marred by a lack of any sense of accomplishment or challenge. To make your tenants happy, you just need to ensure they have power, water, or whatever other utilities are required for that particular tenant, such as restaurants needing gas or apartments needing cable. You also need to ensure they have the required services; offices need courier and copy services (and many others as you build higher-tier offices), apartments need janitorial, dog walking, etc.

    The problem is, there's no middle ground if you don't have the required services; your tenants simply throw you the bird as they walk out the door, in some cases it can be the very same day that you accepted them-e.g. if you forgot to lay a water line when placing a restaurant on a newly constructed floor.

    Aside from this, there's no real "challenge" at hand. You simply go down the list of requirements for some entity, make sure you meet them all, then place the entity; unless they are a restaurant or store who rely on RNG foot traffic, they will basically stay happy forever.

    The lack of gratifying success really pairs up with the lack of challenge to make for an exceedingly underwhelming experience. The only indication you receive for an upgrade to your prestige is some incredibly dull background fireworks, and blinking orange icons to signify new items are available to build.

    It's not the worst game I've ever played, but it really wasn't very satisfying to build a successful tower. By the time I had 30 something prestige, I quit and never looked back.
