The collaboration brings Rick and Morty to Merge Dragons!’s special events that reward players for healing land and collecting points. In the game, Rick and Morty are playing Merge Dragons! and hack their way into the game to retrieve the Stone of Reckoning, a powerful item that opens portals to forbidden worlds. This causes the pair to crash-land in Dragonia, the world of Merge Dragons!, where fans can expect plenty of super-scientific mayhem to ensue.
“We love-a-wubba-dub-dub the idea of Rick and Morty joining us in Dragonia given their packed, intergalactic schedule,” said Bernard Kim, President of Publishing at Zynga. “As superfans of the show, we‘re honored to have them interact with our players in a way that both fans of the show, and Merge Dragons!, will enjoy. Who doesn’t want to see Dragon Rick evolve?!”
Merge Dragons! is available to download free on the App Store for iPhone and iPad, as well as Google Play. For more information about Merge Dragons!, visit the game’s community channels on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube.
