During my time at New York Comic-Con, I had the chance to stop by the Adult Swim Games booth and try out their upcoming title for the HTC Vive, Rick and Morty Simulator: Virtual Rick-ality.
The game places you as a cloned version of Morty that Rick has created, and the demo contained interactions with Rick, Morty, and many different items in the garage, along with a brief experience with death.
The game looks beautiful, and the Vive’s technology works hand-in-hand with the awesome universe of the Rick and Morty license. From what I saw, the game does an incredible job of throwing players right into the antics and fast paced behavior that Morty often has to deal with when spending time with Rick.
The game is being developed by the team behind Job Simulator, a virtual reality game that has already received great praise from many reviewers! Rick and Morty VR has a great physics system from what was shown in the demo. I found myself lifting laundry out of a basket, placing it into the washer, opening up the detergent, and starting the washer. I was able to complete all of the tasks in the demo with ease, and it is one of the smoothest feeling virtual reality games that I have experienced so far! With brief encounters with characters like Mr. Meeseeks, the short demo proves itself as an awesome add-on to the already incredible world of Rick and Morty!
I was extremely happy with the game’s demo, as it fully lives up to everything I love about the show. With Rick spouting lines about how everyone will be dead in 100 years, and that he wants to make his own VR hardware, the demo was unforgettable and falls right in line with what people love about the license. I can’t wait for the game to release, and for more details on Rick and Morty Simulator: Virtual Rick-ality, keep it here on NYCityGuys!
