Rick and Morty Simulator: Virtual Rick-ality Announced | Adult Swim
Virtual Rick-ality does a great job emulating the dark humor of the source material, even if it occasionally overindulges in its self-awareness. Smart use of well-established VR minigame mechanics guides you through the experience, and aside from some slight issues navigating the space on a two-sensor Oculus Rift setup, these familiar and fun activities mesh well with the amusing efforts of the writing team and cast. Rick & Morty's first foray into virtual reality is not only a solid VR experience, but the duo's strongest attempt at translating the spirit of the show into a game yet.
Rick and Morty Simulator: Virtual Rick-ality's irreverence reminds me a lot of JazzPunk, but more grounded and less adventurous, with all of the good and bad a structure like that entails. It takes a little while for the comedy to ramp up (which, in a short game isn't ideal), but when it does, it hits all the right marks. Hopefully a follow-up will take us to more exotic locations and double down on a few of the tougher puzzles.
Rick y Morty console's debut is a VR game that faithfully recreates the animated series' humor and spirit... but in a limited way. The game will last you only 2-3 hours and, even with end game content, it probably won't hook you up (most of it it's minigame repetition). Also, if you have played Job Simulator, "déjà vu" it's guaranteed...
