The Cure at Troy: A Version of Sophocles Philoctetes by Seamus HeaneyThe Cure at Troy is Seamus Heaneys version of Sophocles Philoctetes. Written in the fifth century BC, this play concerns the predicament of the outcast hero, Philoctetes, whom the Greeks marooned on the island of Lemnos and forgot about until the closing stages of the Siege of Troy. Abandoned because of a wounded foot, Philoctetes nevertheless possesses an invincible bow without which the Greeks cannot win the Trojan War. They are forced to return to Lemnos and seek out Philoctetes support in a drama that explores the conflict between personal integrity and political expediency.
Heaneys version of Philoctetes is a fast-paced, brilliant work ideally suited to the stage. Heaney holds on to the majesty of the Greek original, but manages to give his verse the flavor of Irish speech and context.

Troy: A Life Lived
Virtual Rickality is effectively the first full-feature paid video game released on gaming platforms for the Rick and Morty franchise and is, coincidentally, my favorite show of all time. I could hardly sit still waiting for this game and neither could many fans with promises of deep interactivity and accuracy to the show. At its core of design, this is a virtual interactive toybox. Imagine a sequel to Job Simulator, only a little bit more insane. What makes this so special is that every single aspect of the garage is fully interactive.
The Daily Roundup is our comprehensive coverage of the VR industry wrapped up into one daily email, delivered directly to your inbox. The good news: Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality is here to fill the void in your meaningless existence. And you know what? The only thing that might be construed as a lower being on the totem pole of galactic intelligence in the game is a Mr. Meeseeks, cleverly renamed Mr. You-seeks for the purpose of the game, of which you have in infinite supply. But all he does is mirror your movements, letting you pick up objects that go out of your teleportation range, making you basically the lowest life form in the entire multiverse.

Rick bought it when he was searching for a home version of Roy. It only appears in the game Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality. The player plays as Troy, a human boy. Everything and everyone else in the game is made of cardboard, painted to look like objects and people.
