PS4

Job Simulator for PC and PS4 is another pseudo-simulator game, which includes such titles as Surgeon Simulator 2013 (surgeon simulator), I Am Bread (bread slice simulator) or Probably Archery (archer simulator). The project is the responsibility of the team of Owlchemy Labs, known from Snuggle Truck and Jack Lumber.

Story

The Job Simulator feature line does not matter while playing, but the developers took care of a simple story. Players reach 2050, the time when machines took over the majority of people's responsibilities. To remind them that once we did all the work, JobBot was created, which was created by Job Simulator - a program that teaches people of the future what work is.

Mechanics

The title uses virtual reality goggles (Oculus Rift with Oculus Touch and HTC RE Vive controller on the PC, or PlayStation VR with two PlayStation Move controllers on the console), and the whole fun is based on doing various jobs. In Job Simulator for PC and PS4 we play the role of people employed as chef, salesman in a small shop or office worker. In each case, we stand in front of a desk or counter and do various things with objects in the immediate vicinity. So we can have a cup of coffee, throw a book, prepare a hot dog, shake a sparkling drink, pour ketchup over the dish, and so on. Playing does not have much to do with real competitions and is purely ridiculous.

Technical issues

Job Simulator for PC and PS4, like other games of this type, is not one of the main advantages of production. Developers have prepared simple set designs in cartoon style. There are no special effects or high quality textures during the game, and the whole game is supervised by a simplified physical engine. In practice, however, all this works quite well and fits well with the overall climate of the title.
