Squanchtendo Talks VR Game Accounting with Ars Technica #VR

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.

It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
