Justin Roiland’s VR studio Squanch Video games introduced final 12 months that their upcoming sport Trover Saves the Universe was completely focusing on PSVR and PS4 consoles. This week at GDC 2019 although it appears the studio has reversed that call, because the comedy platformer can also be slated to reach on PCs through Steam and Epic Recreation Retailer.
Squanch Video games wasn’t in a position verify which particular PC VR headsets will probably be supported at launch, though VR assist is certainly coming to the PC model for its focused 2019 launch, I used to be advised.
Neither the Epic Recreation Retailer web page nor the Steam web page have data relating to supported headsets at the moment. An informed guess: we’re prone to a minimum of see assist for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift.
There’s no precise launch date but, though the studio says we should always be taught extra on that entrance at PAX East, which takes place in Boston on March 28th – 31st. We’ll most certainly be taught whether or not it’s a staggered or simultaneous launch there too.
In case you’ve by no means heard of it, Trover Saves the Universe is one other madcap fever dream from the thoughts of Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland. It’s not a platformer within the conventional sense, as your character (referred to as a Chair-opian) is seated and depends on teleportation to observe your controllable pal Trover, who will be managed to particular warp nodes the place he battles enemies and solves puzzles seeking your misplaced canine. There’s loads of fourth wall-breaking moments right here which can be certain to attraction to followers of Roiland’s disarming and infectious humorousness.
It appears the GDC 2019 demo on the ground is kind of the identical from after we first noticed it at E3 2018, albeit shortened considerably to accommodate extra GDC-goers. You’ll be able to see the complete demo I skilled beneath.
