Rick, Morty & Stanley: Accounting Is A Surreal VR Game

Rick and Morty and Stanley

Accounting [official site] is the latest game from Crows Crows Crows, the studio directed by William Pugh, one of the brains behind the Stanley Parable. Made in partnership with Rick and Morty creator Justin Roiland, it looks like precisely the sort of hilariously harrowing cartoon nightmare I'd hoped for when news that the two were working together on a Vive game reached us around this time last year. This is precisely the sort of place we should be pushing our eyeballs into.

It's a HTC Vive exclusive and here's how it works:

"Numbers. What do they mean? 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. However, as Accountants and Numbersmiths embraced the abacus and the calculator, today we must embrace the latest technological advancement. Virtual Reality."

Yes, that's how it works. The third member of the team, responsible for the look of the thing, is Dominik Johann, Crows Crows Crows' art director. Like previous release Dr. Langeskov, Accounting will be free.

"You'll be able to download Accounting very soon from Steam. We’re putting it out as a complementary experience ($0.00) in exchange for the undying love and gratitude of humanity."
