Can I use my Vive Controller in VR?
No, Trover Saves the Universe does not support Vive Controllers. We tried, we really did, but there were too many action mappings and not enough buttons. Sorry ;_;
You can use your Vive headset alongside a gamepad or keyboard and mouse if you prefer!
I received an error about Microsoft Visual C Runtime or DirextX?

Is this Rick and Morty/ related to Rick and Morty?
Because Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland is so heavily involved in the game, Trover does have aspects of his style.
What type of game is this? Single player? Multiplayer?
It’s a single player comedy action platformer. There is no multiplayer, you control both the Chairorpean and Trover.
Can my kids play?
While this is a fun and colorful cartoon-style game, we don’t recommend young children playing it due to the rating and content in the game. It does have a censored version, however, that only bleeps out f-bombs. We’ll leave it to your discretion...but we did warn ya! ;)

Is there DLC? Do I need a season pass?
We’d like to try something new for us with Trover. Instead of lowering the game’s cost over time and charging for new content, we’re going to release new content FOR FREE by keeping Trover at full price for longer than usual. That means, once you’ve purchased the game, you’ll see lots of new Trover adventures coming your way until it doesn’t make sense to do that anymore. U COOL WIT DAT?
