Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality is by far the most effective virtual reality experience I've seen on any platform. I've tried the majority of titles "worth playing" on the HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, and PlayStation VR, and none have sucked me in or made me laugh quite like Adult Swim and Owlchemy Labs' latest VR romp. It's finally available on Steam (link here), and we have a brand new launch trailer. Check it out:
"Rick and Morty have teleported into your living room for a cutting-edge VR adventure from Adult Swim Games and Owlchemy Labs (Job Simulator). Play as a Morty clone as you explore Rick's garage, the Smith household, and alien worlds."
I had the opportunity of running through a short demo of the game during PAX East last month, and I had a fantastic time. You can read my full preview right here to get an idea of what you're in for. The team at Adult Swim Games assured me that this would be a full game experience, and not just a series of tech demos, so I'm confident that it will be worth the asking price.
"Experience life as a clone of Morty and all the trauma that comes with it. Step through portals to strange worlds, help Rick with his bizarre experiments, and use your hands in VR to pick up and play in an interaction-filled 3D Rick-ality. Follow Rick's directions (or don't!) to solve puzzles and complete missions in this fully voice acted adventure."
