Author’s Trust

I have played this game for tens of hours, thanks to its comedic nature and sheer randomness. Entertaining myself with its funny jokes and exploring the game for easter eggs led me to the game’s secret ending where I met Dr. Gurgula. Here is my experience of finding him in the game.

Players need to understand the series of events leading to the ending of High on Life. Our extensive guide on High On Life secret ending can assist you in understanding these events.

Dr. Gurgula

Dr. Gurgula is a tall yet thin alien scientist with many arms in the game. While he stays unknown for most of the game, his revelation during the secret ending of High in Life surprises players. He is notorious for his dreadful experiments on humans. However, he justifies it by calling it a struggle to find the universe’s secrets.

Interaction with Dr Gurgula
First Interaction with Dr. Gurgula

During my interaction with him, he confessed that he programmed the extinction of Gatlians. Here are a few events that will lead you to him.

  • Nipulon’s Bounty: Nipulon’s bounty is significant because finishing it allows you access to Bounty-5k. Bounty-5K takes you closer to meeting Dr. Gurgula. Primarily, it will enable you to access Clugg’s office.
  • Clugg’s Office: Players can reach him by navigating through the portals lab using the Bounty-5k and selecting Nova Sanctus from the available portals. All you have to do is steal the Human Haven Keycard from the table beside you. After doing so, use the Bounty-5k to return to the portals lab. Use the lab again and travel to Human Haven in the unknown sector of the game.

Hideout Hints

Here are a few hints that I think are important to locate his hideout in the game:

Douglas’ Room

  •  You will have to use the Bounty-5k and teleport to Port Terrene. Locate Douglas’s whereabouts in the Dreg Town area of Port Terrene.
  • Once you are finished killing Douglas, move on inside his room. Inside his room, you will hear Garmantous speaking through a computer. Look around for a fan. Around that fan, you will be able to locate a poster. The poster is the first hint. Therefore, please pick it up and take it with you.
  • If any of you have missed the hint in Douglas’ office and got to know of it after finishing the missions, simply make your way back to the relevant location from the closed door and turn left. From there, jimmy your way inside the room.

Jonathan Skrendel’s Office

  • Open the portals lab and head to the Zephyr Paradise. You will have to make some efforts to reach Skrendel’s office.
  • Once you are done with the Boss fight, look for the computer terminal around the office. Once you get your hands on the terminal, you will find the second hint

Dr. Giblet’s Lab

  • Living in an unknown location, Dr. Giblets is behind the idea of Warp Base technology. You will have to do proper research to locate him in High on Life and then more planning to win the face-off with him.
  • Beating him will give you another hint about the whereabouts of Dr. Gurgula. You will find it on a red table in his laboratory. When leaving Dr. Giblet’s hideout, you will also find Lezduit Gatlian.

Lezduit is the most sought-after gun in High on Life, and players can learn more about it in our detailed on How To Get Lezduit in High On Life.

Nipulon’s Office

  • Once you are done killing Nipulon, go and check his office in Port Terrene. You will find the hint on one of the shelves in his office.

Top Of Krust Lord Building

  • Krust Lord building is a very noticeable landmark of Blim City. Found in Nova Sanctus planet of High on Life, players can find the last hint about the hiding place on top of the Krust Lord building.
  • Moreover, in addition to the last hint, players can find a luglox chest with attractive rewards inside.

Finding Dr. Gurgula

Now that we have collected all the hints let’s move on to his hiding place. Follow my steps below:

  • Use the Bounty-5k to reach the Human Haven in the Unknown sector.

  • Once in the Unknown Sector, you will find many platforms going upwards. Hopefully, you have brought a Jetpack with you. Use it and climb up these platforms to reach the top of these platforms.
  • At the top, you will find a room secured by a massive locked door. It says clearly no one is allowed in. Luckily, we have the Human Haven keycard with us. Open the door using the card and get inside.

  • Keep moving in until you see some fan plants blocking the way ahead. Deal with them and move ahead until you find Clugg in there. Moreover, you will be shocked to see many dead human bodies, most skinless.
  • He will run away after seeing you there. Therefore, you need to chase him in the facility until he leads you to the secret ending, where you finally meet Dr. Gurgula. A cutscene will appear where Dr. Gurgula will introduce himself.

Final Words

I think Dr. Gurgula should have given a more prominent role in this game. However, the indication of a sequel justifies its mysterious cameo at the end of High on Life. But for that, we will have to wait for a possible sequel. What are your thoughts about a possible sequel of High on Life? Tell us in the comments and don’t forget to read more on:
