Developer: Owlchemy Labs
Genres: Simulation, Adventure
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.
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.
