  1. At the end of July, McDonald's held a Twitter giveaway. It was an innocuous event that took on pop culture significance because what they were giving away, their discontinued Szechuan sauce that had been used to promote the Disney film Mulan, played an integral role in the premier of Rick and Morty Season 3. This made the sauce a particularly prized commodity in the public consciousness - everyone wanted some of that sauce. In early August, McDonald's announced the winners and one of them happened to be Robert Workman, writer at comicbook.com and host of the ARG Podcast. Workman decided that rather than use it on food or drink it straight from the bottle, he would put it up for auction on eBay to help pay off some bills and give the rest to Extra Life, among others. Workman explained his decision in an interview with Inquisitr, “I intend to help out the Extra Life Foundation, which a few friends take part in every year with their once-a-year marathon; and Ablegamers, which my friend Steven Spohn is part of. It depends what the total amount is but I’m going to help these guys out. I may find a third organization depending on the total tally.” That eBay auction has now concluded with the sauce going for a sizable, undisclosed amount. Workman initially committed to donating 10% of the auction to Extra Life, but the auction quickly ballooned to a larger amount than he had initially anticipated. He decided to include more charities and give each charity an equal part of the proceeds. He shifted his giving strategy to benefit Extra Life, AbleGamers, Take This, Gamers Outreach, and Ronald McDonald House Charities, splitting 25% of the auction between the five charities. Workman shed more light on his decision to auction off the sauce rather than keep if for himself in a Twitlonger post: I found a buddy willing to list it on his page and we’re a go to list both the special case and the 64 oz. of Szechuan sauce together. I’ve had suggestions from people that I should open it and sell little tastes to everyone, but a. that would make me like a Scarface for dipping sauce, which I’m not, and b. it’d be nuts trying to measure it all, send it all and make sure everything’s insured. So this will be so much simpler. [...] I know some folks are going to be mad that I’m selling it. “Open it! Enjoy it!” Well, I would, but most of my friends are out of town and trying to fly in and set something up would put me more in debt. This way, someone who wants the sauce can really have it, and I can still enjoy time with my friends. [...] This isn’t going to be an auction where I take the money and run off to Mexico to open video game stores or whatever. Yes, some of it will be used to pay off bills and right the ship for myself, as it’s really been a long time coming. (And a few friends have noted that.) But this is also a prime opportunity to donate some money to charities like Extra Life and Ablegamers, and whoever else I can think of that’s worthy of donations. So depending where the final tally ends up, a small portion of these donations will be going to help out kids, handicapped gamers and others in need. That goes a much longer way than me guzzling 64 ounces worth of sauce – as entertaining as that might be. [...] I hold McDonald’s and Chef Mike in the highest respect. I really do. Mike has done an amazing job bringing this back for some lucky people to enjoy and I will do everything in my power to assure that it’s in the hands of someone that will truly enjoy it with a party of people, instead of just letting it rot away on a shelf for all to see. The point of this sauce is for people to enjoy it – not necessarily me, but whoever ends up with it. According to Workman's Twitter, the winning bid was placed by deadmau5 who should be receiving his sauce shortly. Enjoy it for all of us, deadmau5! [Correction: This article originally stated that the Szechuan sauce sold for $15,350. Mr. Workman reached out to alert us that the coveted McDonald's sauce had been sold for less than the going price and for an undisclosed sum of money.]

  5. The creators of Job Simulator, Owlchemy Games, have revealed their next VR title and it involves some hot, dimension-hopping action. Rick and Morty Simulator: Virtual Rick-ality brings the developer together with Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland to create a VR game that encourages players to experiment and cause catastrophic, potentially earth-shattering accidents. And, of course, there will be an obligatory plumbus or two. Owlchemy Games explained how much this collaboration meant to them, both as creators and as fans of the show on their blog. "This is truly a dream project for us," they said, "We’ve been huge fans of the franchise since the beginning. Working with Justin Roiland is hilarious, and he gets us. In fact, we first met serendipitously over our mutual love of Job Simulator, got drunk, ate Indian food, and then decided to make a video game together. And now we’re bringing the world of Rick and Morty to virtual life!" The gameplay teaser isn't much, but the developers promise that players will be able to go to other dimensions, cause various apocalypses, and (probably) touch all of Rick's stuff. Rick and Morty Simulator: Virtual Rick-ality currently has no release date, but Owlchemy Games promises it will be coming soon. View full article
