VR Player Simulator

EDIT : Web version is up (Font is Antialiased though Oo). By doing this export I noticed I forget to implement some sounds :P

Hello People !
For my first completed game EVER, I present to you :

VR Player Simulator.


This game is all about playing someone playing VR.
His name is John and he really likes VR. So much that he spends his life in his room with the headset on his head.

Your mission is to keep John alive by making him play (to not die of boredom !), rest on the armchair (to not die of fatigue !) or eat pizza !
You need to now what an old phone with a cord looks like.

Made with :
Haxe with Haxeflixel on Haxedevelop
Pyxel Edit


-Pixel arts !
-Eating pizzas !
-Teleporting delivery boy !
-Using old phone !
-Nice scenery !
-No save feature !
-Not VR compatible !


S and F to go left and right
Space to use something around you
Escap to quit the current game (no save feature !)


This is the best game ever, because it's my first ever game and I enjoyed this week-end so much <3

Looks really cool - is there a mac build floating around? Or even a web version?

I need to figure out some stuff to make a web version works. Even more figuring out to get a mac or linux build ! So not for a few days I'm sorry :\ (Also, judging was not supposed to happen so soon !)

I like the way the game references the one room theme; it's really subtle. Anyway, it's a great game!

Very good game, nice concept,

I can confirm it runs flawlessly on Wine. I enjoyed the game.

What is this guy doing when sitting on the chair?

@Starlight glimmer is the best poney : I guess he's watching some concerto, judging by the way he moves he hand !

Haha nice. My high score was 2477
It was confusing how if you were on the phone and pressed space instead of g or h to order a pizza, the person would still say they were gonna be "there... NOW" but then when you answer the door no one was there.

@Soundless_dev : Yeah I know, I forgot to implement the change I was supposed to make, but I had so much trouble making everything work correctly that let's consider it's just a feature :D

Dec 12, 2016 @ 4:21pm

A very fun little game! I really enjoyed it, even though I need to git gud.

Really weird game, but cool.

@ajayajayaj : Well thank you, that's exactly what I was hoping for :D

Fun little game, a bit simplistic, but it works well enough I suppose.

I loved the pizza guy's sound! This was a really funny and interesting game!

Pretty hilarious. I love how the pizza guy vaporizes after the delivery. Also... WHAT ARE YOU DOING IN THAT CHAIR!?

+1 for testing on Wine
I got 2856, did not find the easter eggs ^^
Funny little game, looks like he's doing something else when "resting".

@SoKette (responding to your response to me) Haha, congrats on your first LD! You were linked in a tweet from PoV.

-Delivery boy is Fry from Futurama.
-Why is the player John ? Because John Carmack AKA crazy about VR dude.

The game is really funny. The thing I like the most is the eating animation, really funny. I think the game is interesting but lacks depth, there isn't any real challenge so it gets boring after a while. It would have been cool to have a different animation for every different losing condition.

Nice one! I really like the graphics. Sounds are also good. Gameplay is simple but solid. Well done!

@fullmontis : I promise I will do this kind of change for the next LD, I'll have more experience this time ! :P

It's exactly like my real life, only my pizza guy's not Fry... I love the phone voice.

Funny, if a little obnoxious. Congrats on your first game, here's to many more ;)

I really liked the idea but it seemed like you pretty much had to constantly go between eating and resting until you messed one up. The art and story was very nice.

A simple game, that is very fun to play. Best part is the humor. Well done.
