Crafting subtitles in VR required a massive overhaul of industry best practices—but we truly believe in ‘VR for Everyone’ and are proud to bring VR to a whole new audience with this update...From the deaf and hard of hearing community to players around the world, everyone deserves a vacation.
AUSTIN, Texas (PRWEB) October 29, 2019
Today, Owlchemy Labs launched a major update to their latest title ‘Vacation Simulator’ that pioneers in-world virtual reality (VR) subtitles. Supported languages include English, French, German, Japanese, Korean, and Spanish, along with dozens of additional icons and visual updates for accessibility.
“Crafting subtitles in VR required a massive overhaul of industry best practices—but we truly believe in ‘VR for Everyone’ and are proud to bring VR to a whole new audience with this update,” says Peter Galbraith, Developer at Owlchemy Labs. “From the deaf and hard of hearing community to players around the world, everyone deserves a vacation.”
The latest title from the creators of ‘Job Simulator’ and ‘Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality’, Vacation Simulator presents a humorous, fully-interactive experience built from the ground-up for VR. Players explore the vibrant world of Vacation Island and interact with a colorful cast of characters to discover the true meaning of ‘time off’. The game’s Beach, Forest, Mountain, and Resort destinations allow players to experience typical vacation activities with a not-so-typical twist due to robot misinterpretations of human pastimes.
The subtitles and language update is available now on Steam and Oculus and coming soon to Playstation VR.
“Our goal at Owlchemy is to make ‘VR for everyone’,” says Devin Reimer, Chief Executive Owl at Owlchemy Labs. “There is truly something for everyone to enjoy in Vacation Simulator, and we’re excited to make this ridiculous world we’ve created even more accessible for our players.”
Vacation Simulator is available now on Steam, Oculus, and Playstation VR, with a planned release for Oculus Quest this winter 2019.
