The craziest VR game to date?
The original Accounting came out on other VR platforms, but the “+” version is exclusive to PSVR and this time around actually has the voice of Rick and Morty voicing a number of the characters in this crazy game. So what’s it all about?
Essentially you begin in an office and after learning the controls, you begin a “training program” for accounting by donning a VR headset, but it turns out that it was the wrong one and you are entered into a simulation of a tree world with a foul-mouthed creature popping out of a hole in a tree telling you repeatedly “F*** You” and to leave. Accounting+ takes props from the film Inception as you enter another simulation in a simulation and so on.
You’ll come across some crazy characters and locations including a getaway from cops in which you shoot them with some sort of flower gun, a dungeon with a happy but grotesque creature who wants you to stay forever as his friend, a courtroom and even a secret level that is the weirdest thing I’ve come across. The controls are simple and work spectacularly for PSVR, the only downside with the game is that it’s on the short side and can be breezed through in no time at all.
If you are a fan of Rick and Morty, you’ll come across dozens of mentions and Easter Eggs, which makes the wait for the PSVR version of Virtual Rick-ality all the tougher. The humour of Accounting+ is the big selling point and it’s priceless, well written and well worth going through the game a number of times just to relive the classic moments that you’ll come across. It’s a bit on the dark side of comedy as you’ll gather if you’ve ever watched Rick and Morty, but that’s all part of the appeal.
Visually, the game is a strong contender for PSVR and makes good use of the headset. The characters are well animated, the locations are nicely detailed and the voice-acting is brilliant. I only wish the game was longer as it seems to end just as I started to get into the swing of it.
Accounting+ is the craziest and funniest PSVR game to date. It shows off PSVR well and has plenty of nods for Rick and Morty fans, making it a must-have. I just wish it was longer.
