Hey everyone! Kit here again to shine a spotlight on one of the Virtual Reality experiences we offer at VR Arcade USA. Today, we’re looking at one of our most popular games and one that always leaves people smiling, Job Simulator.
Set in a far-off future, long after humans are gone, you take on the role of a computer learning all about what humans did in their day to day. The way you do this is you are guided through four different occupations: Store Clerk, Chef, Mechanic, and Office Worker. Now you might think to yourself, why would you want to spend your precious gaming time working at a job? But that’s where Job Simulator truly shines. With some of the funniest writing I’ve ever seen in a game and incredibly fun ways to interact with the world, you’re having a blast goofing off at each of these different jobs. One of my favorite things to do is throw objects at the different computers around you, just to see how they react. You’re given a lot of freedom to mess around in this world and that leads to some super fun interactions.
Another thing that makes Job Simulator so great is how friendly it is to gamers of all ages and experience levels. You really only need to use a single button to grab objects, so it’s very easy for anyone to pick up and play. Additionally, because you’re doing all of these jobs from a stationary position, there’s no fear of motion sickness. One of the coolest parts of the game comes in the form of the hand-tracking update they added recently. What that means is you can play Job Simulator without using controllers, as the Oculus Quest headset will recognize your own hands and translate that to your hands within the game. It’s super cool! This is one of the games I recommend to people when they’re not sure if VR is for them because it gives them such a delight to play in this world with basic and intuitive ways to interact with the world. Job Simulator is absolutely what I would call a must-play VR game.
Here’s a look at the trailer for the game so you can see it in action and get a taste of the comedy:
