Players participate in simulated jobs in a job museum run by robots; the jobs are represented as tongue-in-cheek approximations of real occupations: “Auto Mechanic”, “Gourmet Chef”, “Store Clerk” and “Office Worker”. Accompanied by a computer character who provides exposition and instructions, players perform tasks associated with that occupation, some realistic and others comical. For example, in the “Office Worker” simulation, players engage in activities like evaluating new employees and transferring calls, but are also called upon to eat donuts, share photos at the water cooler, and participate in other office rituals. Using the motion controllers of the HTC Vive to represent their hands, players interact with the virtual environment similarly to how they would in real life. Most objects within the player’s reach can be interacted with – many can be picked up and manipulated, while fixed objects such as keyboards and appliances will have buttons, levers, or dials that the player can utilize. After completing a certain amount of tasks, the player is offered to go back to the museum or continue performing tasks.
The player is often afforded a large amount of creative freedom in how they complete a task. For example, when cooking pizza in the chef simulation, players can choose any ingredient they can reach, such as bacon, eggs, apples, or cookies to use as pizza toppings. When performing car repairs in the auto-mechanic simulation, players can choose what style of parts to use as replacements (for example, when replacing a flat tire, the player can choose from any of 9 available tire styles) and is allowed to perform repairs and replacements that aren’t requested by the customer. The player is also free to mess around with the various objects in their reach, such as throwing things in trash cans or at robots, eating food lying around or taking the sunglasses off a customer.
Much of the game’s humour comes from both stereotypical and exaggerated situations in the jobs performed: as a chef, the player is asked to bribe a food critic and navigate around the particular allergies of an underage customer having a birthday; as a car mechanic, the boss instructs the player to sabotage cars or strip a car for parts. The instructor also continually comments on the human nature of the jobs being at odds with the efficiency of robots, the obsolescence of humans, and at one point references “the human uprising of 2027”.
The game also features a special “spectator mode” that serves to provide a more entertaining perspective to the viewers who are observing someone playing the game: aside from the first person view, the player wearing the helmet can position cameras around themselves and switch between them, which then provide a viewport to the external screen of the VR setup; the player is then represented as a disembodied VR helmet and two gloves.
