Squanchtendo Games has released, Accounting, their first game as a new studio. While the game was originally scheduled for release in September, Squanchetendo decided to take a couple of extra weeks to squeeze in a bit more polish, and the game is now available on Steam.
Road to VR got an early peek at the game and found it to be a hilarious, narrative-driven adventure with Job Simulator-style interaction. It takes about half an hour to play though the whole thing, but it could be longer if you take the time to listen to all of the dialogue (which you probably should). The experience is well worth your time and is an exciting taste of what the future holds for Squanchtendo Games, which was founded by Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland and former Epic Games Executive Producer Tanya Watson.
Here is how Squanchtendo describes the game in their own (less than completely accurate) words:
We want to welcome you as a new entrant to the very respected and very mature field of Accounting. You’ve been hired to be one of the first to experience the latest and greatest accountancy software in VIRTUAL REALITY.
In it, you do your Accounting. That is it. Nothing more. It is a serious game and Virtual Reality is the future. Don’t question it. Consume your nutrient packages and step into the 5th most immersive world. It is for adults. Not because there’s violence and sex – but because Accounting is so serious and has so many complex numbers, if a child played it they would probably die.
Accounting is a collaboration between Squanchtendo with William Pugh and Dominik Johann of Crows Crows Crows.
