I don't have PSVR, but I still want to buy Trover Saves The Universe

Trover Saves The Universe for PSVR
You can't go wrong with A game from the co-creator of Rick and Morty... right?
Justin Roiland, of Squanch Games, has somehow found the time outside of Rick and Morty to create a bizarre VR game for PS4. Designed for the PlayStation VR, they say the game is playable without the VR gear, although not quite the same experience.

Regardless, I'm sure their will be strong demand from those owning any sort of PS4 console. I think gamers will flock to this the way they did for the South Park games. There's something special about bringing a TV concept to a video game. While Trover isn't a Rick and Morty game, the same comedic vibe rings through it. I'm down for this!

I've seen some hybrid games that work with and without the PSVR, but I feel this one is backwards compatible because of the huge draw of Adult Swim's popular animated scifi show.

From the PlayStation website:
Your pups are missing. The cosmos is at stake. Only you and Trover can save everything in this bizarre comedy adventure! 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. Upgrade Trover AND YOURSELF with new abilities to (hopefully) defeat Glorkon while evading awkward situations. Immerse yourself in weirdness, no matter which display you use. Switch between TV or PS VR* whenever you want.
