Be a chef, or an office worker, or a convenience store clerk.

Job Simulator

Owlchemy Labs is bringing Job Simulator, its virtual reality game that simulates jobs like a cook, an office worker, a convenience store clerk, and more, to PlayStation VR, the studio announced at the PlayStation Experience 2015 opening keynote.

Job Simulator utilizes two PlayStation Move controllers as “hands” to manipulate the environment. And it uses the PlayStation Camera to track space, encounraging players to stand, reach, and move around the space in front of the TV.

Job Simulator relies heavily on realistic physics to deliver hilarious moments of physical comedy,” Owlchemy Labs CEO Alex Schwartz said in a PlayStation Blog post.

“The feel of throwing a paper airplane, juggling a coffee mug, or opening a cash register all hinge on an incredibly smooth and fluid physics system. This means the industry standard of 60 frames per second gameplay just didn’t cut it for Job Simulator. The team buckled down and optimized further than we ever thought possible in order to bring our rich environments and physics interactions to the PS4 at 90 frames per second. We’re very proud of the entire team for pulling this off!”
