Huge Performance Improvements! Try It Out!

Hello humans! We've been working tirelessly with Unity and Valve to find a way to help remove performance issues in Job Simulator. Most of our performance stems from being CPU-bound and mid-range i5 CPUs were having trouble keeping up with all of our crazy physics.

We put up a public beta that increased performance for dozens of early testers and now we'd like for everyone to try it out and make sure it's bulletproof before we ship it to every Vive owner! Since there's so many hardware configurations that we can't test ourselves, we simply want to ensure that everyone will have a smooth experience using this new version (which has tons of changes/fixes!)

To get to the beta, right click on Job Simulator, go to Properties, go to the Betas tab, and pull down the list to select the 'perftest' beta. Then play the game and let us know if you find any bugs on the Steam forums!

We'll let the community bang on this for a week and launch it next week if nothing catches on fire! :)

EDIT: This beta has been pushed live so everyone can enjoy the huge performance increases! Enjoy, humans!

Job Simulator Update 5/3 - Shorter Human Mode and more fixes!

A quick Job Simulator update!

Shorter Human Mode!!
We've received a ton of requests from some of the less vertically-gifted players to build in a way to reach all of the areas of Job Simulator that may have been previously out of reach. We've delivered!



In the museum, we've added a secret little door under the job kiosk that allows for enabling and disabling Shorter Human Mode.



Full Update List - May 3rd Update
-Options panel with highly requested ‘Shorter Human Mode’ -- enabled near the floor in the Museum!
-Spectator mode able to be enabled from inside the Museum scene
-Fixed mixed reality rendering issue
-Fixed a few cases where the Spectator Mode hand-held camera could be permanently destroyed (will it blend?)
-Fixed rare issue where bite sounds sometimes would not play when an object that could be blown on was near your mouth. Yep.
-Fixed a strange missing reference in automotive
-Fixed items in car trunks exploding wildly

Note: We're still working on fixes to performance issues that some are seeing. We're in the process of updating to the latest Unity to gain some performance with regard to CPU, which we hope will resolve some of the issues on lower end i5 machines.

About This Game

A tongue-in-cheek virtual reality experience for HTC Vive. In a world where robots have replaced all human jobs, step into the "Job Simulator" to learn what it was like 'to job'.

Key Features!

  • Throw a stapler at your boss!
  • Learn to 'job' in four not-so historically accurate representations of work life before society was automated by robots!
  • Use your hands to stack, manipulate, throw, and smash physics objects in an inexplicably satisfying way!
  • Aggressively chug coffee and eat questionable food from the trash!
  • Use the confluence of decades of VR research to accurately track your every movement to sub-millimeter precision so that you eat VR donuts, of course!
  • Able to juggle tomatoes in real life? Do it in VR! Unable to juggle? There's no cleanup required in VR!
  • Gain valuable life experience by firing new employees, serving slushy treats, brewing English tea, and ripping apart car engines!
  • Have a comfortable VR experience where vomiting is solely a gameplay mechanic, not a side-effect!

A VR-Only game!

Fun take on daily work.
It's not really challenging in any way, but it's tons of fun to mess around in.

Easily one of our favorite games to play. This is the type of experience VR was made for! While the jobs and tasks are entertaining, we have the most fun experimenting in what amounts to a virtual sandbox. The fact the game basically allows you to do whatever you want to do, really makes it special. The only major thing lacking is online play. Imagine being able to coordinate a job with other players, or for them to be one of your customers! I'm sure the game wasn't designed with this in mind, but perhaps in a future Job Simulator 2.0? We did receive this for free, but this is definitely worth purchasing for those of you who are no longer getting it in the free Vive bundle. I look forward to playing future projects from this developer, as they truly understand how to make a game fun!

This is a 21st century version of A La Carte Kitchen "Wake up Daddy, Breakfast's ready", the toy I always wanted but never got.

I pottered around in a kitchen and whipped up some Cordon Bleu level quisine, Pretended to be Apu in my own Quickie Mart, skived off from my office job and played Flappy bird then ruined several perfectly functional cars with my auto repair skills.

A fun game and perfect entry level for VR players. My only gripe is once the scripted element of each job is complete there's not much else to do. What's needed is some sort of random task generator to extend the game play.

I don't want to be at work, why would I want to play a game about it? Ok, it's way more entertaining than work, and you can throw stuff at the customers. What more do you need to enjoy yourself?

(Note: Received with purchase of Vive)

I did receive this game for free but that isn't skewing my judgement at all. I've watched so many people play this game on Youtube and couldn't wait to try it out. It did not disappoint. Has 4 great, diverse jobs. Each one throws you a bunch of tasks to complete and somehow keeps every one of them entertaining. Also, half of the fun is honestly just messing around with the items all around you!

Simple, fun game with good writing and tons of personality. If you want a game to demo VR to kids, this is it. Out of the two dozen I own now, this is the one they keep coming back to. It even includes a "shorter human mode" for the vertically challenged.

Good fun and it does give a good taste of the HTC Vive function.
It would be even better more variations and possible devastation can be added to the mix!

It's a must play for the new owners!

One of the best VR games out there!

Job Simulator is a shining example of tracked motion controllers. All of the Jobs are great and have a lot to do. Everyone I show this game to instantly loves it and understands how to play.

I can't wait to see what the next game is from Owlchemy Labs!
