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.

YOU HAVE SELECTED [ASK FOR PROMOTION]. IF YOU’D LIKE TO MAKE ANOTHER SELECTION, PLEASE GO BACK TO THE PREVIOUS BOARD.

Got a couple hours to kill? Dive right in. But for the lost, the lazy, and those pressed for time, we can offer a few hints on how to find the hidden Instagram accounts among the multiple universes and dimensions.

It’s right in front of you

Some of the secret worlds will only take a single click from the main Rick and Morty Rickstaverse account. The strip mall and abandoned ship are two good places to start.

There’s no place like home

While Rick and Morty often travel across the universe, plenty of their adventures happen right in their very own backyard on planet Earth and can easily be hidden among humans themselves.

Ooo, looks like that Garblovian is trying to one-up Better Buy. NEWS FLASH BRO, PHYSICAL MEDIA IS DEAD!

It’s also out of this world

But of course what sort of scavenger hunt would this be if there weren’t some alien planets to explore before traveling where you need to go?

I’m assuming since there’s a bootlegger there that those handbags are knockoffs.

Is it real life—or is it just fantasy?

Not everything is a single click away. Sometimes you might need to travel to a world within a world to get to your destination.

What are you waiting for?
