The people behind Job Simulator, arguably the most popular VR game today, have teamed up with Adult Swim Games to release Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality. As the name suggests, this is a Rick and Morty adventure with a unique VR twist. You play as a Morty clone made to handle things at home while the real Morty goes on adventures with Rick. Don’t worry, there are many scams you can get into at home. Plus, with Rick’s portal technology, you won’t be «home» for very long!
We’re not here to spoil the real story for you, but to show you the kind of silliness you can expect as you roam Rick’s legendary garage.
Change your Plumbus
Every home has one, but you have a few tools to make something unique with this one! The combination machine (Combinator for short) at Rick’s workplace allows you to combine Plumbus with just about anything you can find, and those combinations result in many different types of Plumbus.
Basically you’ll get a version of the Plumbus that doesn’t wiggle or stretch and is different from the standard Plumbus, but collecting a rainbow of options from all the stuff you find in the world is more fun than that. probably should be.
The collection shown here in this screenshot is only two-thirds of the Plumbus options we’ve found so far, so you’ve got a lot of work ahead of you!
Rick’s Combinator does a lot of stupid things, and one of the most interesting ones is making cardboard versions of pretty much everything. Combine random items you find in the game with a box of crackers at Rick’s workbench and you’ll get a cardboard copy of this thing to do whatever you want.
This becomes especially interesting when you start fiddling with other things in the game later on, and of course cardboard things are fun to throw around. Don’t make too much of a mess or Morty will show up on your communicator watch and yell at you for trash!
Make it mini
Some things are more fun when they are smaller. I don’t know why, they just are. Take the Triangle from Rick’s perforated board and add it to any of your Combinator creations and you’ll have a smaller version of what you wanted to create.
There aren’t many good reasons for this, especially early in the game, other than that it’s fun. You can shrink some of the hats that Clone Morty can wear, making them even more silly when they sit on his head, or you can just make a bunch of tiny hammers and throw them around because it’s fun. If you try to use a small version of something in Combinator, unfortunately you won’t get tiny combinations. Everything comes out in full size, unless the Triangle is involved.
Do you think this is funny? Wait until you start pairing things with HGH!
Anything can be a hammer if you work hard and believe in yourself, or if you’re lazy and have Rick the Schemer. Combine everything you see with a hammer and you will have this thing on a hammer handle. Why are you doing this? For one thing, it makes it easier to toss anything around the garage.
You might find other uses for this later in the game, but it’s really just fun to break things with an orange hammer.
Maud your Meeseeks
Rick has modified the Meeseeks Box to make YouSeeks, a special version of these death-happy creatures that mimic your every move. These floating blue mirrored clones are useful for some of the puzzles in the game, but you can customize Rick’s creation by combining the YouSeeks ball with a bunch of other stuff.
Want YouSeeks with Hand Hammers? What about YouSeeks with a drinking problem because his hands are flasks that never run out of booze? There are a lot of fun options to find and they get better the more you make of them.
Just remember to kill YouSeeks when you’re done with them. You know what happens when they stay too long!
