Squanch Games, the studio headed by Rick and Morty creator Justin Roiland, today announced a new VR game at Sony’s E3 2018 keynote. Dubbed Trover Saves the Universe, the platformer is targeting PS4 and PSVR.
Not much is known about Trover Saves the Universe outside of what the Roiland-voiced presenter ‘Bathtub Guy’ tells us: “There’s some action-platforming stuff!” While it’s clear he had more to say about the game, the presentation was cut short as his TV fell into the tub, electrocuting him to death.
Trover Saves the Universe is said to debut exclusively on PSVR and PS4. No specific release date is available yet, although Squanch says it will be available early 2019.
We’re expecting more ad lib-style hilarity from Squanch and Roiland, as everything he says seems dangerously improvised with a penchant for fourth wall breaking madness. Squanch is currently also developing a Daydream exclusive mobile VR game Dr. Splorchy Presents: Space Heroes, revealed at GDC 2018 in March.
