It was recently announced that the hit show from creators Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland will be getting its very own VR game. The game, entitled Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-Ality, is currently under development with studio Owlchemy Labs at the helm. Owlchemy Labs, known for their popular VR game Job Simulator, has partnered with Adult Swim games to bring the Rick and Morty VR game to life on the HTC Vive.

“We’ve been working in secret for months, optimizing plumbus physics and working on the intricacies of Rick’s flask. Now we’re ready to give you all a hint of what’s to come!” Owlchemy announced, while also revealing that the game will include the ability to jump through portals.

“Working with Justin Roiland is hilarious, and he gets us. In fact, we first met serendipitously over our mutual love of Job Simulator, got drunk, ate Indian food, and then decided to make a video game together. And now we’re bringing the world of Rick and Morty to virtual life!”

A teaser trailer was released for Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-Ality, showing a small glimpse at the game which bears a resemblance to the bright and colorful Job Simulator. Furthermore, Owlchemy elaborated that the upcoming game will effectively blend “VR chaos” with the “ridiculous, all-out, take-no-prisoners comedy of Rick and Morty.”

While there is no set release date for Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-Ality, fans looking for more information on the game will be happy to hear that it will be on display at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con which runs from July 21st until July 24th.
