Google-owned VR development studio Owlchemy Labs has announced that it had reached a massive sales milestone for Job Simulator, which has now surpassed one million units sold.
Job Simulator originally launched for HTC Vive back in the first half of 2016 nearly four years ago, at the time, it was lorded for how easy the game is to easy to pick up and endlessly play.
Since release it has also made its way to the Oculus Rift when Touch controllers released, the PSVR, and the Oculus Quest putting it on every major VR platform. Owlchemy Labs is also the developer of Rick and Morty: Virtual-Rickality and Vacation Simulator, two follow-ups that build upon the foundation laid in Job Simulator.
“We first developed Job Simulator as something that could only exist in VR. It was built for hardware that wasn’t yet available to consumers and was a very risky product.” says Owlchemy Labs CEOwl Devin Reimer in the company blog post. “Job Simulator going platinum shows that the consumer VR market is capable of generating huge hits. We’re delighted that Job Simulator has found a diverse audience that enjoys our game.“
