Hello Humans and Clones!
Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality launched last week, and the response has been FUCKING BONKERS. People have been throwing YouSeeks balls, opening real fake doors, and yes, manipulating plumbuses in ways we shall not speak of. The response has been overwhelming and we’re so happy everyone has been enjoying the game! Below are a few of the best of the press that’s come out!
Everyone has been wondering what it was like working with such an incredible IP like Rick and Morty! The short answer: pretty rick-diculous!
