Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland has transferred the obscene and vulgar ethos of his hit show into a new VR video game titled, Trover Saves the Universe.

Posted to Playstation Europe’s YouTube channel earlier today, the upcoming game, which also takes on the same animation style of the Adult Swim series, sees Roiland himself voicing certain characters. From enemies that use the same voice as Rick to the pivotal character Trover who sounds like Morty. According to Tanya Watson, co-founder and studio director of Roiland’s game development house, Squanch, Roiland ad-libbed all of the dialogue.

Set at a third-person action-adventure, players (as Trover) are tasked with saving the universe after an evil monster named Glorkon eventually kidnaps his dogs and stuffs them into his eye, ultimately allowing him to gain incredible powers. As an added bonus, hidden items have been scattered throughout the game, giving eager fans a reason play this game multiple times. And according to an IGN gameplay review, Trover Saves the Universe features over 20 hours of dialogue from Roiland.

Interested fans can purchase Trover Saves the Universe on May 31 when it hits PS4 and PSVR. The game will then release on June 4 for PC. Head over to troversavestheuniverse.com to pre-order the game now for 10% off.
