Adult Swim Games and Owlchemy Labs To Release Highly-Anticipated

"Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality"

Thursday, April 20: Step Out of Rick's Garage and Explore A World Like No Other

Adult Swim announced today the release of Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality, presented by Adult Swim Games and Owlchemy Labs. Based on the critically-acclaimed and fan favorite Rick and Morty series, this multi-dimensional and incredibly immersive virtual reality (VR) experience will be available Thursday, April 20th for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift headsets on Steam and Oculus Home for $29.99.

Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality is a fast-paced, chaotic VR adventure complete with mechanics and mayhem only possible in VR. Fans will experience the show in a totally new way-- personally living life as a clone of Morty and all the trauma that comes with it. Navigate and rummage through Rick's garage and the Smith household, and step through portals to alternate worlds. Follow Rick's directions at your own risk to solve puzzles and complete missions in room-scale virtual reality.

Game features include:

· Experience and interact with Rick and Morty in 3D

· Probe, prod, throw and smash iconic items like the Plumbus

· Teleport around rooms to find hidden objects

· Real fake doors!

The longstanding success and pedigree of Adult Swim Games' portfolio of titles combined with Owlchemy Labs commitment to pushing the boundaries of what is possible in VR was a perfect partnership to creating something innovative for Rick and Morty with new technology.

"It was a privilege to work with the teams at Rick and Morty and Owlchemy," said Jeff Olsen, vice president, Adult Swim Games. "We could not have asked for a more successful collaboration, or a better way to demonstrate Turner's commitment to creating innovative fan experiences beyond the series."

"We really believe fans are going to lose their minds at what we've developed," says Owlchemy Labs CEO Alex Schwartz. "It's been an incredible experience to develop for one of our favorite shows and see the joy on players' faces when they get to explore Rick's garage in VR, physically step through portals, and interact naturally with their hands in the world they're already so familiar with. Players are interacting with the world of Rick and Morty in a way only possible in virtual reality, and they love it!"
