You can get a pretty good sense of what Trover Saves The Universe is like in new gameplay footage released from PAX.
The title is coming in 2019 from Squanch Games to both PlayStation VR and PSVR, so you play the game both inside and outside VR. While we got hands-on time with the game at E3 a few months ago, new videos from PAX show some of the characters, environments and, of course, some of Justin Roiland’s humor that will be infused throughout. This includes a villain that takes two cute puppies and puts them into his eyeholes.
The gameplay also shows how Squanch is experimenting with humor and narrative just as they are with a number of small Daydream VR games. The footage for Trover walks through the tutorial and basic movement mechanics, including showing how you come to control Trover by connecting to one of the “power babies” from his eyeholes.
“We gotta wrap this up, come on, we got — there’s other people waiting to play this–this demo,” Trover says near the end of the footage above.
In typical Squanch fashion the PAX trailer and gameplay videos are accompanied by a comic that calls the game a “P.O.S.”
