VR gaming is about to get recursive in Justin Roiland and William Pugh's 'Accounting.' Squanchtendo

Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland has finally revealed the VR game he developed with Crows Crows Crows, the development studio founded by The Stanley Parable designer William Pugh. It’s called Accounting and marks the first release from Roiland’s games studio, Squanchtendo, which he recently launched with former Epic Games producer Tanya Watson.

While Accounting starts off in a dimly lit office, resplendent with spreadsheets and file cabinets, the trailer soon takes a turn for the weird. The world of Accounting has many layers of reality, as you put on VR headsets inside a VR headset. Tree people scream obscenities at you. Bone furniture. Bottles of acid. Guts and the inside of guts.

Accounting deserves to be the first game someone dies inside.

Here’s the first trailer:

Yes, that’s the vocal stylings of Justin Roiland, who voices both Rick and Morty (and Lemongrab!), alternately soothing us through the Accounting adventure and screaming in our ears “This is my tree world! Who are you? Who the fuck are you to be in this place? Who gives you the right to be in my place? How did you get here!? This is my crazy tree world!”

And yeah, this character has already inspired fan art.

Another great thing about this Accounting trailer is the packaging. Maybe this is just standard Vive stuff, but it’s squanching exciting to see a VR game release wrapped up in N64 cartridge packaging.

Squanchtendo indeed.

Accounting will be released for the HTC Vive on an unspecified date in September.
