Rick And Morty Creator's Trover Saves The Universe Is Discounted For Anniversary (Switch, PC)

To celebrate Trover Saves the Universe's first anniversary, the zany adventure is getting steep discounts throughout the month, starting with Nintendo Switch and PC.


If you appreciate the comedy in Rick and Morty, chances are you'd enjoy the writing in Trover Saves the Universe, a buddy comedy game from the mind of Justin Roiland. It's almost one year old at this point, but if you haven't checked it out, you can save a nice chunk of change right now during Trover Saves the Universe's anniversary sale. At the moment, you can grab Trover Saves the Universe on Nintendo Switch and PC (as part of Epic's Mega sale) for $18, which is a 40% savings.

The Epic Games Store deal is especially good, because Epic is currently offering $10 off coupons when you buy a game $15 or more. You can snag Trover Saves the Universe for $8 with the coupon, and then you'll get a new coupon to use on another game in the Mega sale. You can even get a $10 off coupon by claiming Grand Theft Auto V, which is free right now as part of Epic's free games program.

Now Playing: Trover Saves the Universe Gameplay!

Based on the wording of the anniversary announcement, it sounds like Trover will be discounted on other platforms--probably PS4 and Xbox One--later this month. Squanch Games will also be hosting community challenges for fans on its Discord and Twitter channels next week, while giveaways are planned for the week of May 25 on the game's social channels.

It should be noted that Trover Saves the Universe was designed with VR in mind. The camera angles and interactions are a tad awkward outside of VR, though the off-the-walls story is enjoyable nonetheless. If you pick Trover up at the Epic Games Store, you can also play it on VR headsets including Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, or Valve Index. It's available on PSVR as well, so we'll have to wait and see if the PS4 version gets discounted, too.

Trover Save the Universe stars a bonkers purple alien named Trover--who is voiced by Roiland in the style of Morty--and you, a poor sap who had your dogs taken by a monster named Glorkon. Together, you have to save the universe, of course. It's essentially a bright, colorful platformer with crude jokes and plenty of outlandish comments from Trover and the rest of the beings you encounter.

It earned a 7/10 in GameSpot's Trover Saves the Universe review, with critic Justin Clark praising the character and world design, the hilarious story, while knocking it for its relatively simplistic platforming and combat.
