Justin Roiland, co-creator of Adult Swim’s cult cartoon hit Rick and Morty, has announced that he is producing exclusive content for the HTC Vive VR headset. A late-night tweet from Roiland revealed that he is working a number of games for the Vive, which has been co-developed by HTC and Valve as part of the SteamVR project.

Roiland tweeted:

Fans of Rick and Morty, co-created by Roiland with Community mastermind and self-confessed alcoholic manbaby Dan Harmon, will know that virtual reality has played a large part in the show so far, featuring in multiple episodes, most notably in last month’s Mortynight Run.

Roiland’s move into VR was teased last month on the Oculus subreddit, when a post from GalacticInquisitor showed a Rick and Morty sketch produced by Roiland on VR painting app Tiltbrush.

A later post then asked:

“Hypothetically if I were to suggest the possibility of a VR game co created by Justin Roiland, StressLevelZero, and potentially Pen Ward, Would you be interested, very interested, not interested? Which one? Which one?

A further comment suggested that one of these potential games “will be our follow up game to Hover Junkers, nothing small.”
