Trover Saves The Universe, the humorous new game from Squanch Games and Rick and Morty creator Justin Roiland, got a new trailer at Sony’s E3 2018 Presentation. The trailer was hosted by the self-proclaimed “Bathtub Guy”, showing off colorful and alien worlds in an art style familiar to anyone who’s a fan of the Adult Swim hit series.

The premise of this action platformer is as bizarre as it looks:

Wonderful. Your dogs have been dognapped by a beaked lunatic who stuffed them into his eye holes and is using their life essence to destroy the universe. Does that make any sense? You’ve partnered with Trover, a little purple eye hole monster to save them. Find power babies and plug them into his eye holes so that he can absorb their power, track down Glorkon, and save your dogs (and the Universe).

Whenever Trover is due out, it’ll be an exclusive to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation VR.
