New ‘Trover Saves the Universe’ Gameplay Video Reveals the Weird & Wild World of Trover

News Bits


Upcoming action-platformer Trover Saves the Universe is the bizarre and hilarious brain child of Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland. Now you can see for yourself what PS4 and PSVR users will experience in a new demo presented at PAX West this past weekend.

Update (11:15 AM ET): Squanch Games just uploaded a new trailer/gameplay video. Check it out below.

Original Article (September 4th, 2018): Having played a more gameplay-focused demo during E3, it appears Trover Saves the Universe is shaping up to be another fourth wall-breaking romp from Squanch Games, a studio founded by Roiland that also produced Accounting (2017), PSVR exclusive Accounting+ (2017), and the Daydream exclusive Dr. Splorch Presentes: Space Heroes (2018).

Here’s how Squanch describes Trover Saves the Universe:

Wonderful. Your dogs have been dognapped by a beaked lunatic who stuffed them into his eye holes and is using their life essence to destroy the universe. Does that make any sense? You’ve partnered with Trover, a little purple eye hole monster to save them. Find power babies and plug them into his eye holes so that he can absorb their power, track down Glorkon, and save your dogs (and the Universe).

Trover Saves the Universe is slated to release exclusively on PS4 and PSVR (DualShock 4 only) at some point in early 2019.

    Looks cool, but demo was waaaay too short. Would like to see this on Rift.

    No Rift… no fun :(

    Looks amazing. Also I find it crazy that people are complaining about it not being on the Rift, is Revive an unknown thing?

      I don’t think it’s on PC at all….. So you know the rest…

    Hope this game comes to Steam!
