Welcome to the Vacation Simulator, a rough approximation of VACATION inspired by real human NOT JOBBING, brought to you by the same robots behind the Job Simulator. Reallocate your bandwidth and get ready to splash, s’more, snowball, and selfie your way to optimal relaxation! The year is 2060. 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. AMENITIES: Experience Vacation Island, your destination for optimal relaxation and/or efficient memory-making! Customize a virtual YOU for picture-perfect selfies! Wave to interact with a colorful cast of Bots! Enjoy RECREATION beyond the theoretical limit in immersion-inspiring destinations! Splash in the silicon sea and bask in simulated sunlight, all without getting sand in your… hands! Get lost connecting with your roots, nodes, and branches... then get actually lost on a hike! Elevate your ice-sculpting skills to new heights and reach peak cozy by knitting mittens for a snowhuman! Exist in a comfortable, all-inclusive VR experience— free of motion sickness AND seasickness!

Going on vacation is an expectedly relaxing experience that doesn't demand much from the player, which makes Vacation Simulator play like an introductory VR experience

Vacation Simulator goes well beyond what we originally expected from this sequel. It cleverly expands on just about everything from the original game while bursting with the same lighthearted humour and the kind of immersive interactivity other VR devs could only dream of achieving. It's a lot cheaper than a real holiday too, and involves less time sharing sweaty metal tubes with other humans, which definitely helps.

All VR headset owners should own at least one Owlchemy Labs game, and this is the company's best yet.

I have a lot of VR games because I think they transcend barriers for non-gamers, and they are also a whole lot of fun. Job Simulator was a great way to break in new players, but I have to say that Vacation Simulator will be supplanting (or at least supplementing) their previous effort. While some of the minigames won't keep you coming back, there's enough here to keep you busy for quite a while. Owlchemy Labs has spent four years hard at work, but I'm gonna enjoy bit of my Vacation Simulation.
