We're sure the irony of taking a fake holiday within the confines of virtual reality isn't lost on Owlchemy Labs, a studio that revels in the absurdity of what it's making. Job Simulator was one of PlayStation VR's first games, a series of silly sandboxes stuffed with interactive objects and madcap characters. It's about as far from...
New trailer released
Owlchemy Labs saw a great deal of early success on virtual reality platforms with its comedic adventure game, Job Simulator. It remains one of PlayStation VR's most downloaded titles, and it's not hard to see why, with its family friendly tone, off the wall humour, and a variety of highly interactive levels to mess around in...
Rest and relaxation
There’s something tactile about virtual reality that Job Simulator tapped in to. The game was slight, but it was laugh out loud funny and extremely interactive, which made for a good three to four hour introduction to PlayStation VR’s features. Now developer Owlchemy Labs is back with Vacation Simulator, a riff on the...
Owlchemy Labs has debuted its latest game, Vacation Simulator, during The Game Awards' pre-show. A follow-up to its previous PlayStation VR title Job Simulator, this new game adopts the same comedic chaos in sunnier settings. In the trailer embedded above, for example, we see the player enjoying a warm day at the beach, eating hot...
Like that Saturdays song
Ordinarily we’d crib at unpaid overtime, but in the case of the delightful Job Simulator we’re down for a few additional hours of hard labour. Available today as part of a free update, the new mode will see you working the “never-ending night shift”, as you’re assigned an endless stream of randomised tasks in...
Will continue to support PlayStation VR
Google has bought Owlchemy Labs, the developer behind the excellent PlayStation VR launch title Job Simulator. The news comes shortly after Sony teamed up with the American company to release its tongue-in-cheek virtual reality title at retail. Fortunately, the acquisition will not prevent the developer from...
Stack those shelves
Shortlived it may be, but Job Simulator's still one of the best virtual reality experiences you can buy on PlayStation VR. Not only does the title take full advantage of the medium, but its tongue-in-cheek humour is on-point from start-to-finish, and it's a must-own if you happen to pick up Sony's futuristic facemask. And...
All work and no pay
As short-lived girl group The Saturdays once warbled, put your boots on baby and get to work. Some reviewers like to start their reviews by recycling the words of Charles Dickens; here at Push Square we prefer to borrow from the surprisingly short range of Ms. Mollie King. It's the kind of irreverence that we like to think Job...
The simulator gag has gotten stale, but Job Simulator brings enough laughs to the novelty genre to land a new punchline. This bonkers work-'em-up is set in the future, where robots simulate the menial tasks of today with a disregard for details. This means that, while you'll be carrying out tedious tasks such as making soup and fixing...
