So while there are plenty of videogames available on Steam for VRFocus’ to chose from the titles selected are pure fully released experiences, rather than Early Access ones which are technically still in development. And the first one on the list comes from well known developer Owlchemy Labs, combining its knowledge of immersive, fun and wacky gameplay with Adult Swim’s popular cartoon IP Rick and Morty.
From its first reveal all the way up to launch this was something virtual reality (VR) gamers and Rick and Morty fans alike were keen to get their hands on. The prospect of diving into their weird and wonderful world seemed like a great mix for VR and it certainly proved as much. Rick And Morty: Virtual Rick-Ality offers a compact introduction to the duo’s universe, with the majority of the videogame based inside Rick’s garage. From here you have three sections to explore, each one offering further possibilities with new areas to find.
As the title was built by Owlchemy Labs it very much has that feel of the studio’s first, Job Simulator, which was all about picking up stuff, learning how different objects interacted and getting used to being in a VR world. With Rick And Morty: Virtual Rick-Ality all of this was then dialed up to eleven.
While Rick And Morty: Virtual Rick-Ality doesn’t specifically force you to go down a set path there is a story mode that’ll help you unlock items, areas and just help you figure out what does what. You’ll head into outer space to fix a satellite, find yourself on an alien world for a shooting challenge or wander to Morty’s bathroom to well…you know…find items.
VRFocus reviewed Rick And Morty: Virtual Rick-Ality giving it the coveted five stars saying: “This is a videogame for those that love Rick and Morty, and quite frankly that’s no bad thing. Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality is a madcap, fun filled adventure from start to finish, perfectly suiting VR’s qualities, it should not be missed.”
If you’re into heavy role-playing games (RPGs), where you go on massive adventures, do up your stats, kill loads of enemies with guns and swords and generally live a whole other life, then this might not be for you. For everyone else who might want a quirky videogame that’ll make them smile then you can’t go too far wrong with this.
