Following the release of the season three premiere, Rick and Morty fans are eagerly awaiting anything new from creators Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon.

Last year, Owlchemy Labs and Adult Swim announced the VR game Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-Ality would soon be coming to Oculus Rift and HTC Vive.

Finally, we have a release date, and it’s very soon: 20 April. That date is renown for being the unofficial international cannabis smoking day.

The game marks Roiland’s second foray into VR, having previously released Accounting through his gaming studio Squanchtendo.

Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-Ality — which has toured various conventions over the last year — puts players into one of Morty’s many clones shoes. Players have to complete puzzles using the VR technology and plumbuses.

"The game takes place in Rick’s garage,” developer Alex Schwartz told Polygon of the game. “Rick’s garage is filled with tons of stuff to play with. Chemistry sets and just boxes of things on the shelves. Elements from the show. It’s fully crammed in there.”

Meanwhile, Rick and Morty fans can expect the second episode of season three to premiere this summer.
