Trover Saves the Universe is one of those games that makes me wonder if I am currently hallucinating. Of course, this is probably intentional, seeing as its coming from the deranged mind of Justin Roiland, co-creator of Rick and Morty, and it’s also the first full-length title from Squanch Games. The game was announced at PlayStation’s E3 2018 Showcase, and it’s an action-platformer in a delightfully vibrant and utterly bizarre world. The video doesn’t go into much story detail, but some story aspects are outlined in the video’s description. As Trover, you need to save the universe and rescue your dogs from some guy who… kidnapped them and stuffed them in his eyeholes? And he’s using their power to destroy the universe? Right, yeah, definitely hallucinating.
All joking aside, the game looks like a really fun trip. With Roiland voicing the characters, this really feels like we’ll be exploring a small corner of Rick and Morty. Trover Saves the Universe will be launching soon for PS4 and PSVR. The wording on the trailer says “Debuting soon” so maybe this will hit other consoles as well.
