Working on an IP where almost everyone in the studio was already OBSESSED with the show was really an awesome experience. The entire team came to the project with incredible enthusiasm and hit the ground running. We learned so much about creating bipedal 3D characters in VR, building intuitive character interactions, portals, and, of course, the intricacies of Plumbus physics. We’re truly proud of what we’ve created here and we’re really excited for fans to get their virtual hands on this!
Also, we couldn’t have asked for better partners to bring this game to market! Adult Swim Games and the Rick and Morty show team have been endlessly supportive of us and our development process, believing in us while we exclaimed wildly, trying to describe our style of VR development. They trusted us with their beloved characters, knowing that we were ridiculous fans of the show before we started work on the VR game. We certainly couldn’t have done it without their help and support!
And of course a very important thanks to Justin Roiland! Without him, this project wouldn’t have even existed. It was our first meeting that cemented the idea that building a VR game in Rick’s garage would be awesome, and his unique brand of VO really brings together the humor and magic of Rick and Morty! Honestly, we don’t know how he still has a functioning voice after doing all of those Rick recordings.
So the game is finally polished and ready to squanch right into your living rooms. It’s been months and months of prototyping, testing, and experimenting to create something we’re truly proud of and feels like an honest extension of the show. Sometimes VR is a lot more art than science, eh Morty?
And that’s the wayyy the news goes!
