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. Pleasant Surprise
    by Dan L.13, USA - Apr 11th 2018

    Honestly I had low expectations about what this game would be.
    So I was pleasantly surprised to discover it's actually a good game.

    Nothing fancy, but engaging and oddly fun.

  3. Interessante e da non sottovalutare...
    by khadgar1, Italy - Nov 16th 2017

    Non è il vecchio Yoot Tower ma offre una componente di gioco molto simile e comunque espandabile nelle sue azioni. Probabilmente andrebbero limitate alcune monotonie sulla parte economica e di espansione della torre ma son aspetti più piccoli rispetto alla qualità del prodotto.

    Personalmente mi piace molto ed alcune aggiunte (vedi la gestione dei servizi essenziali della torre) è sviluppata particolarmente bene.

    Non è adatto a tutti ma agli appassionati di questi generi sicuramente consiglio l'acquisto!

    [It's not the old Yoot Tower but it offers a very similar gaming component and, in any case, expandable in its actions. It is likely that some monotony on the economic side and expansion of the tower would be limited, but they are smaller than the quality of the product.

    I personally like it very much and some additions (see the management of essential tower services) are developed particularly well.

    It is not suitable for everyone but fans of these genres definitely recommend buying!]

  4. Easy to get lost in
    by DaLejd, Germany - Oct 7th 2017

    Project Highrise is easy to get lost in, both in a good sense of not noticing how the hours fly by as well in a bad sense of that many types of units have various requirements which may at first seem difficult to get a grasp on. After having taken a bit of time to learn about what requirements are needed for what (and realized i.e. that there is a key shortcut to lay e.g. electrical lines for a floor with one click), I found that variety to be a very nice part of the game tho as it offers room for creativity about what type of building one wants. That is that one can focus on having plenty of small offices (of which there are various types) or rather aim to get some corporate HQ/s settled in the building, and/or similarly about apartments. Shops and restaurants come also in various tiers and types, such as with restaurants ranging from small coffee shops and bakeries to large i.e. sports bar and luxury restaurants.

    In terms of overall construction it is also somewhat variable, as in that if one wants to build e.g. an upside-down pyramid, not a problem. All that comes with also a range of decorative items one can add. And support for mods (and Steam Workshop) expands on all that even more.

    The game comes with a tutorial, a sandbox mode (with different difficulties) and a variety of scenarios which have specific requirements to be achieved.

    What I did find not so great about the game is that if one happens to be in a situation of all loans taken and little income where it may take a few in-game days to get enough funds so one can build the next floor (and one already knows what all is in the build-menus), one can't open the in-game reports windows without the game pausing, and even opening Steam overlay pauses the game. And while the game is graphically nice enough in my view for game-play, besides the movement of people in the building there isn't really anything to watch going on, which all made it in that mentioned situation somewhat boring to me. Also, a simple campaign mode would seem nice for such a quite modern game, as in some town map where one could purchase plots for building after having amassed some money from first build with that first build perhaps still giving interest or possible to sell (with such perhaps even being connected to some leader-boards of sorts). Other than that tho, I enjoyed playing it and would be quite hyped if they would announce a 3D sequel for it.

  5. 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.

  6. Takes Me Back...
    by Fretless, Australia - Sep 20th 2016

    Reminds me of my days playing SimTower all those years ago. Gameplay easy enough to understand (though I've yet to play on the "Hard" settings), and graphics look pretty cool. Doesn't seem to be processor heavy at all, which is also good. It can get a bit repetative towards the end, and they do need to have more (or better) maintenance crews, but still a very enjoyable game none the less.
