Google Daydream introduces a twisted virtual reality experience where you confront the future of employment in this anxiety-inducing VR game. The technology places you in a VR space where you have to wear a virtual reality google inside a virtual reality world. Aptly titled "Virtual Virtual Reality", gamers confront virtual issues of employment which could play on your anxieties as it indirectly triggers thoughts of humanity's future and the meaning of existence.

It's a running joke among VR gamers to experience the VR world inside a VR space. Now, award-winning tech developers, Tencer Claws, brings to the world of games a surrealistic imagining of an unfamiliar environment where gamers have to deal with daily human tasks such as having a day job. The young company describes their product as the result of their collective millennial hallucinations.

In a game powered by Google Daydream, you’ll find yourself diving into varying levels of virtual reality by putting on virtual reality headsets while inside of other virtual reality headsets. According to Road To VR, you can also step out in the "real" world at some point in the game, which is revealed to be a stark shift from the happy-go-lucky virtual realities. More information and details are revealed in the trailer released by Tender Claws.

The game contains more than 50 virtual realities to find with more than two hours of gameplay for the price of $9. Gamers make use of the Daydream controller for various interactions and flexible movements to thoroughly explore the VR world. This game has debuted to impressive acclaim among users who rate the experience a 4.8 out of 5 stars on the Play Store.

According to The Verge, that's not all that Google Daydream has been busy these past few months. Recently, the tech giant also launched its joint product with Boiler Room. Unlike the strange world of Tender Claw's latest VR game, Boiler room offers a VR experience of being in a trendy club with techno-spinning music DJs.
