“We will be adding fun side adventures to Trover in the form of DLC packs ALL FOR FREEEEEE!!! We’ll be releasing those as time marches forward and we slowly decay and eventually die,” says Justin Roiland, co-founder of Squanch Games and co-creator of Rick and Morty. “Do you think the cosmos care at all about you? We are nothing. Hope you like Trover!! Buy more video games!”
About Trover Saves the Universe
From the co-creator of Rick and Morty comes Trover Saves the Universe. Your dogs have been dognapped by a beaked lunatic named Glorkon, who stuffed them into his eye holes and is using their life essence to destroy the universe. You’re partnered with Trover, a little purple eye-hole monster who isn’t a huge fan of working or being put in the position of having to save the universe. Only you and Trover can save everything in this bizarre comedy adventure, created by Justin Roiland!
This is a comedy adventure filled with combat, platforming, puzzles, and morally-questionable choices. See how the best intentions can go horribly awry. Control Trover’s movements, but not his mouth; he’s got a lot to say about what’s going on in the game. Travel the cosmos to experience a variety of weird alien planets and bizarre characters with big personalities. Upgrade Trover AND YOURSELF with new abilities to (hopefully) defeat Glorkon while evading awkward situations.
Trover Saves the Universe lets you immerse yourself in weirdness, no matter which display you use. Switch between TV, monitor or VR headset displays whenever you want. On PS4, just plug in your Playstation®VR headset. For PC, optional headset and input support is provided for HTC VIVE® (headset only), Oculus Rift and Valve Index.
Trover Saves the Universe is now available on PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®VR for $29.99 (PlayStation Store) and $29.99 (Retail). PlayStation is also offering a special PlayStation®VR bundle featuring Trover and Five Nights at Freddy’s. For more details, visit PlayStation Bundle.
