It’s Rick and Morty in VR. cue crowd aggressively over-cheering and crying tears of joy
Rick and Morty Simulator: Virtual Rick-ality for HTC Vive was announced last night by publisher Adult Swim Games, initiating a July Christmas for fans of the series.
Being developed by Job Simulator studio Owlchemy Labs, the game is set to feature the ability to jump through portals and touch Rick’s stuff. IN VR. I know.
As you may remember, Roiland hinted last August that he was working on Rick and Morty VR concepts for the Vive. Clearly, he wasn’t lying.
“We’ve been working in secret for months,” said the developer on its website. “This is truly a dream project for us. We’ve been huge fans of the franchise since the beginning.
“Working with [creator] Justin Roiland is hilarious, and he gets us. In fact, we first met serendipitously over our mutual love of Job Simulator, got drunk, ate Indian food, and then decided to make a video game together. And now we’re bringing the world of Rick and Morty to virtual life.”
Overcome with excitement and joy? Going to San Diego Comic Con this year? Well good news, Rick and Morty Simulator: Virtual Rick-ality will be playable at Adult Swim’s panel. The convention is set to take place July 21st-24th from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. PST.
A release date has yet to be divulged, but the title is set to make its full debut at the event.
Rick and Morty isn’t my jam. Neither is VR, because it makes my eyes hurt. Yet, I want to..play this game…?
