Thanks largely in part to the success of Owlchemy Labs’ Job Simulator: The 2050 Archives (our review for which you can read here) there are a growing number of other job simulation titles heading towards virtual reality (VR) and all appear on first glance to very drastically in quality and few seem to possess the zeal or humor that can be found in Job Simulator.
Coming in to Steam Greenlight is a new videogame from developer Mikai.inc that sees the ‘make a meal’ style of minigame brought into VR. In VR Sushi Bar, you take on the role of a sushi chef (not the first time VR has met the world of sushi), diligently crafting dishes from rice and fish as per the orders of the bar’s somewhat unusual clientelle. Making the correct dishes will see you rack up points and for every string of ten correct responses in a row your prodigeous skills will awaken a Buddha statue, whose hunger you will then have to satiate with a machine gun that shoots sushi.
Yes, you read that correctly.
Details about the videogame are flimsy based on the Steam page, however a mixed reality trailer for the game which you can see below reveals that if passed the title will be coming to both the HTC Vive (on SteamVR and Viveport) and the Oculus Rift.
Should the title pass Steam Greenlight or more information become available VRFocus will of course let you know. And if you would like the chance to become a virtual shushi chef you can of course vote for it on Steam.
