Wubba lubba dub dub! Laser Time’s favorite cartoon will soon enter virtual reality, as the first trailer for Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality has dropped. Chiggity-check it out!
If you’ve spent any time reading, watching, or listening to Laser Time’s wares, you know we’re big fans of Rick and Morty. We actually had series creator on an episode of Laser Time (briefly)! However, for all of the great game references embedded within the sci-fi animated sitcom, we’ve yet to have a great game. Pocket Mortys is fine, but now that we have true Pokemon on mobile phones, it’s a tough sell nowadays. That may change with Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality, a VR game that will debut at Comic-Con next week, though we have a teaser today:
As someone who has precious little VR experience outside of twenty minutes of VR bomb disposal and has never been to Comic-Con, this quick teaser does a great job selling me on both. Granted, there’s no knowing how much world exploration the final VR product will offer, but the comedy stylings of Roiland and company combined with the development expertise of Owlchemy Labs (who worked on AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! — A Reckless Disregard for Gravity’s VR port) shows great promise. At the very least, we can appreciate plumbuses on a whole new level.
