“We will be adding fun side adventures to Trover in the form of DLC packs ALL FOR FREEEEEE!!! We’ll be releasing those as time marches forward and we slowly decay and eventually die,” says Justin Roiland. “Do you think the cosmos care at all about you? We are nothing. Hope you like Trover!! Buy more video games!”
In Trover Saves the Universe, your dogs have been dognapped by a beaked lunatic named Glorkon, who stuffed them into his eye holes and is using their life essence to destroy the universe. You’re partnered with Trover, a little purple eye-hole monster who isn’t a huge fan of working or being put in the position of having to save the universe. Only you and Trover can save everything in this bizarre comedy adventure.
This is a comedy adventure filled with combat, platforming, puzzles, and morally-questionable choices. See how the best intentions can go horribly awry. Control Trover’s movements, but not his mouth; he’s got a lot to say about what’s going on in the game. Travel the cosmos to experience a variety of weird alien planets and bizarre characters with big personalities. Upgrade Trover and yourself with new abilities to (hopefully) defeat Glorkon while evading awkward situations.
Trover Saves the Universe lets you immerse yourself in weirdness, no matter which display you use. Switch between TV, monitor or VR headset displays whenever you want. On PS4, just plug in your Playstation VR headset. For PC, optional headset and input support is provided for HTC VIVE, Oculus Rift and Valve Index.
Following the release of Trover Saves the Universe, you can expect to see lots of new Trover adventures coming your way via download for free.
