Over the past few years, certain games like Job Simulator have become incredibly popular. While they aren't actually authentic simulators which focus on realistic paperwork and email usage, they're a lot of fun to play because you can fool around in this blocky virtual world. Owlchemy Labs are known for creating such types of experiences because it's behind Job Simulator and the phenomenal Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality. However, their latest project is a slight departure from work.
Today, Owlchemy Labs announced Vacation Simulator. According to the team, in this game you're rediscover the true meaning of "time off." What that means remains to be seen because from the trailer it seems like you're mostly shopping and playing in ponds. Vacation Simulator takes place on Vacation Island which features a few different regions. There are countless activities to partake in, just like Job Simulator.
For example, on Vacation Beach, you can splash in the silicon sea and bask in simulated sunlight, all without getting anything wet. Vacation Forest allows you to get lost connecting with your roots, nodes, and branches. However, there's the possibility of actually getting lost in the virtual forest so be careful. Lastly, Vacation Mountain elevates your ice-sculpting skills to new heights and also allows you to knit mittens.
Vacation Simulator is coming SteamVR and Oculus on April 9. Unfortunately, PlayStation VR owners will have to wait until Summer 2019. The game looks like a lot of fun and we can easily see it becoming popular on streaming platforms like Mixer. Are you interested in Vacation Simulator? Let us know.
