One extremely talented modder recreates scenes from the popular animated series Rick and Morty in Bethesda Softworks’ post-apocalyptic RPG, Fallout 4.
Although it may seem like an odd pairing to some, the Rick and Morty universe works surprisingly well in tandem with Fallout 4‘s retro-futuristic aesthetics. As it happens, the modder and YouTuber known as UpIsNotJump heartily agrees, as he decided to recreate some of what he considers to be the best scenes from the first season of Justin Roiland’s and Dan Harmon’s Adult Swim animated series in Fallout 4‘s virtual Wasteland setting.
Fans of both Rick and Morty and Fallout 4 should be pleased as punch with the fruits of UpIsNotJump’s labor, for not only are there a lot of great references to the television show with an appearance by Bird Person, a recreation of the tense tête-à-tête between Snowball and Summer, and an all-too-brief reminder of Scary Terry’s nightmarish existence, but also the action-RPG’s popular mods feature is on full display here. As a matter of fact, aside from the show itself getting the Fallout 4 treatment, the YouTuber’s remake of Rick and Morty‘s “Two Brothers” alternate reality movie trailer is a prime example of all the kooky stuff that can be accomplished using the game’s mods.
According to the video’s description, UpIsNotJump took it upon himself to create several new mods simply to have the privilege of recreating Rick and Morty in Fallout 4. Although the YouTuber doesn’t list exactly which scripts he put together, at least we can all revel in the magnificent results seen in the clip below.
As many fans are probably aware, this is far from the first time that UpIsNotJump has used Fallout 4‘s assets to pay homage to a TV show or pop culture franchise. As it happens, one of the YouTuber’s earliest forays into the art of modding involved the recreation of Netflix’s Daredevil season 2 trailer. Interestingly enough, however, it’s not as if UpIsNotJump explicitly dabbles in remakes, as the modder has also used Fallout 4 to make original content such as the bizarre rap video starring Strong the Super Mutant.
At any rate, UpIsNotJump’s modding of Rick and Morty scenes into Fallout 4 obviously speaks to the popularity of both the sci-fi comedy series and the video game. Taking this into consideration, when the two mediums become blended, much like when DOTA 2 got its own Rick and Morty announcer pack a while back, fans ultimately get the best of both worlds.
What did you think about UpIsNotJump’s recreation of Rick and Morty in Fallout 4? The YouTuber has promised to cover season 2 and 3 of the show with Bethesda’s open world title, so which scenes do you think the modder should tackle next? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
Fallout 4 is out now and available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
