Job Simulator is a virtual reality simulation video game developed and published by Owlchemy Labs for Microsoft Windows, in which players participate in comedic approximations of jobs in the real world.
The player is often given a lot of creative freedom in how they complete a task. For example, when cooking pizza chef in the simulation, players can choose one of the ingredients that they can reach, like bacon, eggs, potatoes, biscuits or to use as a pizza topping. When running car repairs in automotive mechanic simulation, players can choose what style of parts to be used in replacement (for example, when replacing a flat tire, the player can choose one of 9 styles available tires) and is authorized to carry out repairs and replacements that are not requested by the client. The player is also free to mess with the different objects within their reach, like throw things in the garbage or robots, eating food lying around or take the sunglasses off a client.
Much of the humor of the game comes from both stereotypical and exaggerated situations in jobs performed: as leader, the player is invited to corrupt a food critic and navigate around specific allergies a minor customer who a birthday; as an auto mechanic, the boss orders the player sabotaging cars or bands of a car for parts. The instructor also commented continuously on human nature of jobs being in contradiction with the efficiency of robots, obsolescence of man, and an occasional references “the human uprising 2027”.
