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. He’s also not that big a fan of you quite frankly, and neither am I. (Jk, you’re great) Only you and Trover can save everything in this bizarre comedy adventure, created by Justin Roiland! A comedy adventure filled with combat, platforming, puzzles, and morally questionable choices. See how the best intentions can go horribly awry. You 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. You'll be immersed in weirdness, no matter which display you use -- play on TV, monitor or VR headset displays.

I waited a long time to buy this game... because I thought you needed VR to play it. Still don't have VR but the regular monitor experience was great.
The voice acting and script is top notch entertaining.
Very chill vibes all the way through.
Gameplay is solid. Platforming was smooth. Puzzles were 5 minute headscratchers, not throw your controller at the wall ragefests. Action was straightforward and not clunky.
If I ever get VR I look forward to replaying it.
Rate it 5 beers out of 5. Take a sip and relax.

Review from Steam

This game is currently included in the VR Humble Bundle for a little over $12. Good price for this and the couple of other games included.
This game is not worth $30, IMO.
The brand of humor is the usual Justin Roiland stuff and it definitely dips into the more... awful aspects of what he finds funny.
Combat is suuuper boring. They throw a lot of enemies at you and it takes a while to clear a stage. There aren't any 'combos' or anything, even with the slam attack, so you're just mashing attack for a couple of minutes every time and hoping it's over soon.
Level design is cool enough. The environments are solid, but nothing special. The character designs are all pretty great and the voice acting is of a high quality overall.
There's really almost no reason to play the game in VR, considering you control a character via controller. It's also pretty unfortunate that there's no proper VR Controller support. I played this with an Oculus Quest and had to swap to my PS5 controller because the 'push and pull' functionality of a chair upgrade didn't function otherwise. There are a lot of objects that need to be moved around, so I'm now stuck being a Chairorpian for the rest of my playthrough.
There are definitely some funny moments and I'd say the game is worth playing for fans of Justin Roiland's work, but definitely go in expecting very little. It's nothing revolutionary or groundbreaking, just decently entertaining. Very mid.

Works great on Steamdeck!!

Review from Steam

I struggle to find the words to describe this game. Not the game play - that is a little less than 10 hrs of 3D puzzle-world. The ramblings of Justin Roiland - uncensored - some bizarre ramblings. If you like Rick and Morty, you will like the humor in Trover. (The best part is when he cracks himself up in-game-rambling - towards the end when Trover is . . . "lamenting".)
