Job Simulator review

Job Simulator is the virtual reality game that simulates real-world jobs in a comical way. It was developed and published by the American video game developer Owlchemy Labs for the following platforms: PlayStation 4, Oculus Quest, and Microsoft Windows. The first version of the game for Windows was released in April 2016. Also, note that Job Simulator requires a headset. It can be Valve Index, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, and Windows Mixed Reality. There is only one playing mode — room-scale. The game also supports tracked motion controllers.

Graphics and Sound

This game is made in a cartoon-like style. To fully enjoy the graphics, you need to have the Nvidia GeForce GTX 970, AMD Radeon R9 290 equivalent or better video card. The sounds are simple; most often just repeat some kind of animation effects during the game. Also, some sounds set the pace of the different kinds of missions in the game.

Controls

Job Simulator is played from the first-person perspective. The motion controllers, depending on the platform you use, display only the hands. As a result, you can interact with the game environment like in real life. Please note, that Job Simulator supports only the room-scale playing mode and the playing area is required to be at least 2m x 1.5m. Think about this in advance and clean up the room.

Gameplay

Job Simulator brings you in the 2015 year where almost all human professions performed by robots. You will find yourself in a fictional job with the exposition that simulates some of the current human jobs. For example, Office Worker, Store Clerk, Auto Mechanic, and Gourmet Chef. Following the instructions, you need to perform different tasks associated with a certain job position. Some of the missions are realistic, while others — comical. For instance, during the walkthrough of Office Worker mode, you need to evaluate new employees or take part in the competition of transferring calls.

The game gives you a lot of freedom in the way you can complete tasks. For example, when cooking a pizza in a Gourmet Chef mode, you can choose any ingredients. It is full of humor and satire. Most of them come from stereotypes or parodies. There is also a special spectator mode where you can watch how other players complete the game without interacting.

Lasting Appeal

Job Simulator is a great simulation game full os satire and humor. Joking missions will not leave you indifferent and will cheer you up even after the hardest day. Unfortunately, there is only a single-player mode. Despite this, this factor does not decrease the rate of replay value. The game suits people of different ages:  from children to adults.

Conclusion

Job Simulator is a virtual reality game developed by Owlchemy Labs for three platforms: PlayStation 4, Oculus Quest, and Microsoft Windows. The cartooney style adds charm to the game and increases the rate of lasting appeal. There are several modes with different humor and realistic missions that imitate the job of a chef, office worker, and others.
