Trover Saves the Universe Art Book is Coming in July from Dark Horse
Fans of Justin Roiland or Rick and Morty are in for a treat with the official art book for Trover Saves the Universe coming this summer.
While he’s most well-known for the space-faring adventures of Rick and Morty, Justin Roiland has also brought his signature brand of bizarre humor over to games in the past few years. That has included Trover Saves the Universe, the action-platform title from developer Squanch Games that has brought new levels of absurdist humor to consoles and PC. Following its initial release in 2019, publisher Dark Horse is collecting much of the game’s inspiration and concept designs for an official art book this summer.
IGN shared a look at the official art book for Trover Saves the Universe, giving a closer glimpse at the final cover art for the book and confirming that it will release on July 28, 2021 for $39.99. The book itself will run 192 pages and feature a collection of concept art, sketches, behind-the-scenes info, and more that went into the making of the game. You can take a look at the cover art below (via IGN):
Coming from Justin Roiland, Trover Saves the Universe was initially released for PS4/PlayStation VR and PC in summer 2019, followed later that year with releases for Nintendo Switch and Xbox One. Most recently the game arrived on Oculus Quest last year, allowing players to experience its quirky humor free from the constraints of a wired VR headset.
Our own Grant Huff (Senior Staff Writer) reviewed the game when it first launched in 2019, and noted that the game is “a must play” for anyone that happens to love Rick and Morty and has a PlayStation VR headset. While you can play the game on various platforms without VR, Grant definitely felt that the immersion of VR just adds a little bit extra depth to the wildly over-the-top humor that players will experience in the game.
Trover Saves the Universe is available now on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
