Squanch Games Co-Founder and CEO Tanya Watson talks partnering with Justin Roiland and VR's appeal

Bringing Wilson and Roiland together was obviously a great idea.


Shacknews recently had the chance to sit down with Squanch Games CEO and co-founder Tanya Watson, as well as Justin Roiland, to chat about Trover Saves the Universe, virtual reality, and the allure

Previously, Tanya had been working as executive producer on Fortnite and Bulletstorm, bringing an impressive pedigree to Squanch Games.

"I was blown away with how amazing the technology was. I was in a conference the first time I played it, and I remember taking the headset off and thinking that I was in a conference, but I had been transported to another place."

"I started looking for someone to make games with me. That's when I met Justin," said Watson. The rest, as they say, is history!

Find out more of the story in the exclusive interview above. Trover Saves the Universe is scheduled to release for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation VR sometime next year.
