Accounting is a new free VR game for the HTC Vive from developers Crows Crows Crows and Rick and Morty creator Justin Roiland’s new studio Squanchtendo. The game is Roiland’s first step into VR, and is probably the most bizarre thing I’ve seen this year, and also one of the most awesome.
I could try and explain the game, but I honestly cant. So here’s an official overview via the game’s Steam listing:
Numbers. What do they mean?
The modern field of Accountancy is a serious and honorable profession. Many human beings have spent their lives toiling over the hard science of numbers. Thousands have died so that we may get to the level of understanding that we have today. Thousands have died. However, as Accountants and Numbersmiths embraced the abacus and the calculator, today we must embrace the latest technological advancement.
In early 2016, three highly qualified Accountants came together to see what potential economic savings and visualisations could be achieved with The HTC Vive. These Accountants were quickly and discreetly discarded to be replaced by award-winning game studio Crows Crows Crows and the newly announced VR studio Squanchtendo, to create the ultimate electronic number-crunching program.
Let’s get one thing straight: Accountancy is a mature profession and is not for children.
You’re probably still confused. I don’t blame you. Check out the new trailer below for a better glimpse into this complete one-of-a-kind experience:
