I never expected a video game demo in which I grabbed a tomato (and threw it at a robot) to awe me so deeply.
I … wanna play Job Simulator forever.
This digital kitchen I was transported to tricked me without even having me realize I had been duped.
I was tricked into believing.
I microwaved a tomato, served up a beef steak, and cracked many eggs.
This was actually the perfect demo for VR:
the rudimentary and clumsy actions I was performing reminded me of those of a young child that’s first getting to know the world around it.
The one that left the biggest lasting impression with me is probably the kitchen/cooking one… It just felt like a complete joy. Ringing the bell, picking up the various objects, opening the fridge… it all felt
incredibly natural and instinctive.
It was riotously funny.
Of the game-like experiences I’ve had with the device, it was the best –
better even than Valve’s own Portal 2 vignette.
My personal favourite was one where I was transported to a kitchen. I cooked in a virtual kitchen, and it felt
so unbelievably real.
I found myself in the kitchen for the first properly interactive experience of the demo. I soon discovered that there was as much fun to be had playing with the food as there was cooking with it.
I threw pots and pans around a robot kitchen, chopped up carrots and mushrooms and then microwaved a bottle of wine (it melted into a twisted cube)… It sounds ridiculous, but
I was grinning like a lunatic the whole time.
