Rick and Morty
Everyone’s favorite space-exploring duo are due to return for the third season of the show sometime in 2017, and what better way to celebrate than with a standalone game. By that, we mean one that doesn’t necessarily have to tie into the storylines of the TV show. Something that can be enjoyed by both newcomers and seasoned fans alike.
Of course, the Rick and Morty formula doesn’t just fit into any kind of game. There was the Pokemon GO ripoff, Pocket Mortys that released last year, but fans crave something more substantial. An episodic series, with each episode acting as a feature-length episode, is probably the best bet for retaining the eccentricity and sporadic nature of the duo’s adventures. Players would embark on a space adventure, meet all kinds of weird and wonderful creatures, and navigate complex platforming worlds.
Of course, nothing ever goes entirely to plan, so you could expect all kinds of crazy mechanics to mix things up a little. There’s always the Telltale option, too, though Rick and Morty’s cast of characters don’t lend themselves to this formula as well as others.
