Get schwifty in virtual Rick-ality.
Get ready to (not) open real fake doors and use a plumbus because a Rick and Morty virtual reality game is launching this Thursday April 20. Uhhh that’s tomorrow my glip glops.
In Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality players will take on the role of a Morty clone and get to explore areas such as Rick’s Garage, the Smith’s house and of course alien planets. The game promises an authentic experience for the player. Oh, you’ll get to solve problems in an interactive Rick and Morty reality, but you’ll also get to walk through portals and have your self-worth questioned by Rick.
Better still, the game features full voice acting from Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland. Roiland, who voices both Rick and Morty in the series, has voice acted previously for several VR titles such as Accounting, The Lab and Job Simulator. He’s also the voice of Earl of Lemongrab in Adventure Time and one of the minds behind VR game studio Squanchtendo.
The game was developed by Adult Swim in conjunction with the Texas-based Owlchemy Labs, who pride themselves on “absurd and highly polished games.” Owlchemy Labs have had previous success with 2016’s Job Simulator: a VR game for HTC Vive, Occulus Rift and Playstation VR where players got to experience contrived simulations of – you guessed it – jobs.
