Project Highrise gives you a lot of tools and deep systems to grapple with while building the skyscraper of your dreams, but in doing so, it can be hard to know exactly where to start. As we dumped time into the game while reviewing it, we came up with this list of tips that should be good for getting you started with the game:
Builders can be finicky
The one constant in every Project Highrise building is the presence of a construction crew. These are the people that follow your directions when it comes to building new floors, installing apartments, outfitting offices, etc. They are the true key to your success in the game, but they aren’t always the easiest people to control.
Since you have no direct control over builders, they choose when to work and what to work on. The main things you need to know about their habits are that your builders generally work on projects in the order that you mark things for construction, and they won’t work tirelessly. Every once in a while they’ll want to take a break. Keeping these things in mind, make sure you build things in the order that you want them to go up and make sure you don’t wait to the last minute to build crucial additions to your building.
