What do you get if you lock Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland in virtual reality with the Dr. Langeskov gang at Crows Crows Crows for a few months? A few dozen slop buckets you couldn’t pay me to go near. Also Accounting [official site], a virtual reality accounting simulator for HTC Vive. It’s out now for free on Steam and… I’m not quite sure how angry tree spirits and dungeons and guts and acid are involved in accounting, but I trust they’ve researched this thoroughly.To clear things up, Crows etc. and Roiland’s Squanchtendo explain:
“The modern field of Accountancy is a serious and honorable profession. Many human beings have spent their lives toiling over the hard science of numbers. Thousands have died so that we may get to the level of understanding that we have today. Thousands have died.”
Ah. Right. Maybe this trailer will help:
Oh, so you dick about in cyberspace throwing stuff while someone says funny things. Gotcha! Crows Crows Crows are a lark and Rick and Morty is one of the best things on television in years so good, great, excellent. Cybergoggles disagree with my eagle eyes but sure, I’d fire this up to throw things if I ever found myself near some goggs.
[Disclosure: head Crow William Pugh is a pal of mine. How pally? After he got smashed up by a car, I almost sent him flowers in the form of a car-shaped funeral wreath but decided it was too expensive for a joke and so instead neither sent nor said nothing.]
