Are you ready to take on the dastardly duo at their own game? I’m talking about the outrageously titled Penn & Teller VR: Frankly Unfair, Unkind, Unnecessary & Underhanded (Penn & Teller VR: F U, U, U, & U.) Yep – it’s an ‘eff you’ joke.
The game, which is a collection of mini-games and magical experiences, is out now on PSVR and other virtual reality headsets. But it’s not just any old game. This is a Penn & Teller game…
Penn & Teller VR is billed as a “comedic social VR experience” that includes 14 magic tricks and pranks for you to pull on your friends and family. So, basically, you have more fun when somebody else is inside the headset suffering. A little bit different, but that’s just Penn & Teller by design.
However, for those who don’t have friends and family to prank (give us a call, you poor sods) there is some single-player content whereby single players can become a willing volunteer in magic acts. You can try to escape Houdini’s Water Torture Cell before you succumb to drowning, or uncover a mystery while cleaning the windows of a Las Vegas skyscraper. Hey, at least you’ll get to see a bit of Vegas without losing all of your money.
And if that’s not enough, how about having Penn reading the entirety of Moby Dick. Like, the whole book. It’s like an audio book, but in VR. Yes, it’s weird. Again, that’s just Penn & Teller for you.
Gearbox has released a new trailer today to celebrate the game’s launch, which you can watch down below. Then head over to the PlayStation Store where you can by Penn & Teller VR for $19.99. Having Penn reading a bedtime story in VR has to be worth the price alone, right?
