Owlchemy Labs’ New VR Game ‘Vacation Simulator’ is Headed to GDC

Owlchemy Labs, creators of Job Simulator (2016) and Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality (2017) tonight announced their latest VR title, Vacation Simulator.

Update (3/5/18): Owlchemy Labs has confirmed that it’ll be bringing Vacation Simulator to GDC 2018 later this month where the studio will show off “the first ever playable demo” of the title.

The studio’s Alex Schwartz and Devin Reimer will also be giving a postmortem presentation of their title Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality (2017) at GDC.

Original Article (12/7/17): Revealed during the Game Awards 2017 ceremony, Vacation Simulator promises to deliver the same deadpan comedy of its predecessor, which had you exploring what it was like to do a job through the lens of sentient robots who have long since made human labor obsolete. Job Simulator has become one of PC VR’s most recognizable titles, and one of the most successful so far; it’s no wonder that Owlchemy is following it up with a sequel.

“First you JOB, then you VACATION. Experience RECREATION, optimal RELAXATION, and classic human pasttimes like SUNBURN. Vacation Island offers all this and more so that you can discover the lost art of TIME OFF,” the game’s announcement reads.

Earlier this year, Google announced that it had acquired Owlchemy, though so far the company seems to be very hands-off—there’s no mention of Google anywhere on Vacation Simulator’s official page, and the studio is promising support for all major PC VR headsets: HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, and PSVR, with a launch date set for 2018.
