It’s been a little over a week since Job Simulator was released into the wild, and reviews are starting to roll in! Here’s a sample of what people have been saying now that they’ve had their comically-oversized, white-gloved hands on it:
Taking over the Top Lists
The folks over at TIME gave us one of their coveted five top spots in their HTC Vive Launch games list, knocking us flat down with that honor. I mean, Job Simulator is business, but TIME is SERIOUS BUSINESS.
These Are the 5 Best HTC Vive Launch Games
Digital Trends named us one of their top 6 “absolute favorite” Vive launch titles and then further inflated our ego by claiming that Job Simulator is “one of the funniest games we’ve played in ages.”

And Gizmag gave us some love in naming us one of their top 10 Vive launch games saying, “The game is both a showcase piece for tracked controllers and a playground for your inner id.”

People have wanted to talk to us, and we’ve been more than happy to geek out about VR! Alex spoke to Gamasutra about the development process and to Develop about the role of comedy in games. Frank wanted to know some of the stories behind the making of Job Simulator, and while UploadVR went deep into the discussion on some of the trials and thought processes behind generating physics in a virtual reality environment. Lastly, Polygon talked to us about our new Spectator Mode and the importance of streaming and content creation tools as we start sharing VR experiences.
The guys over at Achievement Hunter played Job Simulator and Gavin’s voice reached exciting new octaves as he found out just how responsive the physics are.
