The Owls are back from GDC and what a ridiculously amazing event this one was! Four talks, five panels, a Unity Keynote, and endless high-fives! Crowning the entire event was our enormous win at the Game Developer’s Choice Award, where Job Simulator took home Best VR/AR Game!
This is a big one for us. This was the first year of commercial VR, and the first time GDCA even offered this as a category. Being selected as winner for this award says a lot about what the industry believes VR should be: high-quality, active VR with hands that’s built from the ground-up specifically for VR. We’re beyond thrilled for this honor, and we can’t wait to continue the tradition of making excellent, ridiculous VR experiences in the future!
OFFICIAL JOB SIMULATOR MERCHANDISE
On top of that, we were elated to get a first glimpse at physical Job Simulator merch made by our friends at iam8bit! They’re bringing all of our virtual goodness into actual reality. Those who were at GDC were able to visit the iam8bit booth in the Official GDC Merch Store and get their hands on our JobBot plush pull-string toy, launching later this year! This was our first time actually touching it, so we were quite excited 😉
All of our Job Simulator Official [Human] Merchandise is available for purchase on the iam8bit store. From a talking JobBot plush toy to t-shirts, magnets, pins, and posters– we’re happy to offer so many different ways to show your love for JOB!
The Job Simulator JobBot Plush is available for pre-order on iam8bit.com! It can even be thrown at a wall, because we know from our time in VR that throwing things at high velocity is what people truly want to do, deep down.
JobBot was so happy to meet everyone that he took on San Francisco and the Game Developers Conference on his own! Here are some highlights from JobBot’s adventure.
