Like all of Dark Horse’s video game art books, The Art of Trover Saves the Universe will feature plenty of concept designs, art and creator commentary. Even if you have played the game, the book may be worth reading just to peek inside the mind of creator Justin Roiland, who’s also responsible for a little show called Rick and Morty.
The Art of Trover Saves the Universe is 192 pages and is priced at $39.99. The book is scheduled for release on July 28, 2021.
Trover Saves the Universe earned an 8.7 from IGN when it hit PC, consoles and Oculus Rift in 2019. Reviewer Tom Marks writes, “Trover Saves the Universe is a short and sweet VR platformer wrapped in one of the most ridiculous video game stories you’ll ever see. Justin Roiland and Squanch Games have done an excellent job of taking the ludicrous, freeform humor of Rick and Morty and molding it around a straightforward but enjoyable 3D brawler – even if it’s lacking the complex and well-crafted plots the best episodes of that show are known for.”
As for Rick and Morty, the wait continues for Season 5, though we did get a sneak peek of Rick’s nemesis Mr. Nimbus at Comic-Con last year. Roiland and Rick and Morty co-creator Dan Harmon are also developing a new animated sitcom for Fox, which is expected to debut in Spring 2022.
