What Is Job Simulator? In Job Simulator, players participate in virtual occupations in a job museum run by robots resembling floating CRT computer monitors with faces. The positions are shown as tongue-in-cheek approximations of real occupations: “Auto Mechanic”, “Gourmet Chef”, “Store Clerk” and “Office Worker”. Accompanied by a computer figure who provides exposition and directions, players do duties related with that vocation, some of them realistic and others funny in Job Simulator the 2050 archives. For example, in the “Office Worker” simulation, players engage in chores like evaluating new employees and transferring calls, but are also called upon to eat doughnuts, trade photos at the water cooler, and participate in other office responsibilities. In Job Simulator, the player is typically granted a considerable level of creative license in how they perform a task. For example, when cooking pizza in the chef simulation, players can chose any food they can reach, such as bacon, eggs, apples, or cookies to utilize as pizza toppings. When performing car repairs in the auto-mechanic simulation in Job Simulator, 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 are allowed to perform repairs and replacements that aren’t requested by the customer. The player is also allowed to muck around with the different objects in their grasp, such as tossing things in garbage cans or at robots, eating food laying around or pulling the sunglasses off a customer. Much of Job Simulator’s humor 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 (however, the game doesn’t punish you if you don’t); as a car mechanic, the boss instructs the player to sabotage cars or strip a car for parts. Some of Job Simulator’s humor also comes from puns and other forms of word play: as an auto mechanic, one of the nine varieties of tires the player can give customers resembles a chocolate-covered doughnut with sprinkles as a play on the informal term “donut tires” often used to describe compact spare tires that are generally unsuitable for driving long distances; as a chef, the player is instructed to bake a cake for an underage customer’s birthday party, and one of the ingredients is a flower, which sounds phonetically similar to “flour.” The instructor in Job Simulator also frequently comments on the human character of the jobs being at odds with the efficiency of robots, the obsolescence of people in general, and at one point cites an event termed “the human revolt of 2027”.
