Vacation Simulator, the long-awaited direct follow-up to Job Simulator from Google-owned Owlchemy Labs, finally has a PSVR release date set for June 18th, 2019. In Vacation Simulator players take control of a robot that is aimed to simulate comical vacation scenarios as if they were a human.
The game is already slated for April 9th on PC VR headsets.
The game’s Steam page describes the plot as follows:
Following record enrollment in the Job Simulator, robots set out to uncover what else humans did besides ‘job’. After years of balancing buoyancy levels, cataloguing campfire chronicles, and securing ski slope safety protocols, their research led to the creation of a rough approximation of ‘not jobbing’: the Vacation Simulator.
“You don’t need a button, you immediately go to wave and it just feels natural,” said Andrew Eiche, Chief Technology Owl and Cable Slinger at Owlchemy Labs in a prepared statement. “It’s a simple, powerful interaction that allows players to interact with characters and connect with the VR world in a very personal way.”
