Adult Swim launches ‘Rick and Morty’ scavenger hunt on Instagram

This almost has as many wormholes as the show itself.

You can now explore the many worlds and dimensions of Rick and Morty’s world without ever leaving your seat—or your phone, for that matter.

The insanely weird second season of the hit show from Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland premieres on Adult Swim this Sunday, but before we pick up right where we left off, you get to go on a scavenger hunt that takes place entirely on Instagram.

The premise is simple: Start on the @RickandMortyRickstaverse Instagram page and check out the photos featuring artwork from the show; each piece is part of a bigger picture. Find the photos that tag other accounts to visit different worlds and view other items based on clues from the captions. Eventually it will lead to five separate private Instagram accounts that promise to release exclusive footage at some point in the future once you follow them.

It’s like a choose-your-own-adventure story, except reversing that final click to a dead-end is as easy as hitting the backspace button.

You’ll not only visit different worlds, there are also Easter eggs hidden among the different worlds and pathways like comics about the One True Morty, N33dful Th1ng objects that usually result in death, Meeseeks boxes, and a Tamagotchi toy featuring Rick’s main adversary, his son-in-law Jerry.

What are you waiting for?
