Interesting interview with Justin Rolland, Tanya Watson and William Pugh from Ars Technica:
“How much of this am I allowed to spoil?” This was my first question to Justin Roiland—the writer, animator, and voice actor best known for co-creating Adult Swim series Rick & Morty—after 12 minutes of laughing hysterically inside of his first virtual reality project.
Roiland topped off his makeshift morning mimosa and responded pretty demurely, choosing not to offer a PR-style list of rules and restrictions. Instead, his plea sounded like one from a creator, not an advertiser: whatever gets spoiled will ruin the whole point of his first-ever, fully fledged VR product, so, you know, be cool about it.
Here’s what I can say thus far: it’s a “game” called Accounting. In it, your VR hands look like giant Windows mouse pointers. It’s actually about accounting. (And a little more.) It’s free for the HTC Vive, and it will launch “really soon” as the first game from Roiland’s new, dedicated VR studio, the bizarrely named Squanchtendo.
