#4 Dead Hungry
Want dies with that?
Somehow blanking out those teenage years you spent slaving over a molten hot deep fat fryer for pittance, putting on a VR headset automatically makes working behind a fast food counter a ridiculous amount of fun – see Job Simulator for further proof. As with any game from the last 20 years, zombies officially make things at least 54% better and PixelJunk developer Q-Games know it. Thus Dead Hungry, where you have to assemble and serve burgers, fries, and pizzas to the hungry undead before they decide to eat you, a humble food truck worker, is absurdly stupid and brilliantly chaotic. It might not be the most innovative use of VR controllers but Oculus Touch is perfectly suited to stacking the constituent burger ingredients for the ravenous hordes who will be cured of their infected cadaverousness by your perfect cooking.
And while the brain-hungry really like their red meat, you can mix fire extinguishers or other items you find lying around into the recipe too to keep them away from your precious prefrontal cortex. However, if you fail to meet minimum flavour requirements, it’s not going to be pretty.
There’s no news as to whether this is coming to PS VR, but Shuhei Yoshida playing it for himself at an event earlier this year and Q-Games’ strong relationship with Sony should make it, well, a no brainer.
“fail to meet the minimum flavour requirements and it’s not going to be pretty”
We only saw burger cooking in action, but the full game adds pizzas and soda pouring into the fray to crank up the oven heat even more.
