Owlchemy Labs has revealed another one of the roles for their virtual reality experience called Job Simulator: The 2025 Archives. The robots will now let us humans get our hands dirty as an automotive mechanic.
That’s right, a robot drives a car into a garage and lets a human take a look under the hood.
Automotive Mechanic Role
In the latest teaser video, we get to see a car enter a garage and the robot driver asks for some minor tuning to be applied to the outside of the vehicle. As the mechanic quickly demos some of the features we can see that you can pour oil and other fluids, either into the car or where ever you please, you can tune the engine, work on the tires, and even adjust the car’s decor. On the left side of the mechanics view is a paint-o-matic that allows you to select a color from a rainbow palette and there’s even a lift that will raise and lower the vehicle for the best position to complete the job. Remember, this is room-scale VR so you could lie on the ground and crawl under the vehicle if your physical space allows for it.
Just like in the other work environments, you can listen to a radio and throw anything you can pick up. Honestly, everyone that has tried Job Simulator has thrown something. Just wait. You will too!
In the original demo we were able to prepare a soup in a kitchen while playing the chef role, then came along the office worker role, and before the latest announcement we were introduced to the convenience store clerk.
When we covered the refreshed kitchen during Valve’s Developer Summit we read that there were five roles to be announced before the game was available to the public, but in a tweet releasing the trailer they say this is the fourth and final role for Job Simulator.
