Owlchemy Labs, Google’s VR studio, has announced that their game has sold over a million units after launching in back in 2016. It has joined an extremely exclusive club of titles to even reach that mark behind only Beat Saber.
We first developed Job Simulator as something that could only exist in VR. It was built for hardware that wasn’t yet available to consumers and was a very risky product. Job Simulator going platinum shows that the consumer VR market is capable of generating huge hits. We’re delighted that Job Simulator has found a diverse audience that enjoys our game.
We feel that part of the appeal of Job Simulator is how accessible and comfortable the game is to players. Whether you’re in the middle of your virtual office cubicle or watching the action from your couch the game speaks to the magic of VR. Our players experiment with something and ‘it just works’—much to the delight of those watching and playing. Building content that has deep interaction in a format that is welcoming to all players creates a mainstream experience that has proven staying powerDevin Reimer, Owlchemy Labs CEOwl
Job Simulator is available on PS VR, Oculus Rift, Oculus Quest, HTC Vive, Valve Index, and Windows Mixed Reality.
