Introduction:

Welcome to Vacation Simulator Trophy Guide!

Created by Owlchemy Labs; this is the latest VR game from creators of ‘Job Simulator’ and ‘Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality’!
Following on from Job Simulator, the “Bots” are further intrigued into what else the “Human” does during its lifespan. You are the Human and you are tasked with collecting the Human Memories for the Bots to completely understand what is a Vacation?

Visit the vibrant world of Vacation Island and make real memories of a simulated vacation.
During your quest you are tasked with a variety of different quests, that range from simply taking a Photo, to creating a masterpiece of Ice & Sand Sculptures and overall the game can be hilarious, but also massively frustrating at times.

Roadmap:

The game can be played in any way you wish, as a number of the Story Related Mini-Games will net you a Trophy, or two. I have however made the walkthrough in 2 steps, just in case you want to get a few of the easy miscellaneous trophies out of the way first.

Step 1: Miscellaneous/Ad-Hoc Trophies
A Number of trophies will come through natural gameplay, however as normal, there are also a few that will require you to go out of your way to obtain. I have listed this step in an order that can be completed for you to get used to the mechanics of the game, without worrying too much about the challenges that lay ahead. You can however skip over this step and clean up post game.

Trophies suggested to be earned during this step:

Silver This Vacation brought to you by…
Bronze Love Your Look
Bronze You’re A Natural
Bronze Did You Know…
Bronze Permission Granted
Gold Fish Icing
Gold Is This Real Gaming?
Silver The World Is Your Oyster
Silver Sunken Treasure
Silver Mushy Music
Silver Old Reliable
Silver Brain Freeze
Silver Peak Vacation

Step 2: Completing all the Memories
This is where you will spend most of your time. There are 69 memories total to complete/collect and a number of them involve traversing between the 4 areas (inc Main Hub) to collect the relevant item for the task in hand.
Most of the memories can be played out in any order, however there are some that increase in difficulty once you have completed the first step of it. Some also require you to complete “x” number of memories in order to access the remaining ones in that area.
You will need to familiarise yourself with the game completely in order to obtain all the memories.

During this step you’ll earn these trophies:

Gold Simulation Saved
Gold Mandatory Socialization
Gold Life’s A Beach
Gold Forest For The Trees
Gold Molehill Or Mountain
Gold The Perfect Vacation
40-platinum Surpassed the Simulation

2L1ac2b7The Perfect VacationGold
Get All Memories in the Vacation Simulator

There are 69 total memories that must be collected/completed across the 3 different vacation areas. In order to obtain this trophy you must complete all memories collectively.
Most of the memories themselves are easy to figure out, however some will involve traversing between areas to collect the relevant piece of food, or photo etc.
You will need to ensure you use your backpack for the initial storage of 8 items, plus you can use the storage that is available to you within your bedroom for those valuable items that you feel you may need at a later time.
A fair amount of the memories will take some working out, so take your time over them. I found the taking a picture of the requirement of Cooking/Photo memories and placing it in my backpack helped, as I was able to travel to different areas and refresh myself on the requirements for the particular memory I was striving for.

Save the Vacation Simulator

Once you have obtained 30 Memories combined over all 3 Areas, head on back to the Main Hub area and stand by Vacation Bot to initiate a conversation about the party. After a few minutes Vacation Bot will introduce you to a new scanner, where you can activate your bracelet and unlock the “Vacation Party” switch. Once you are able to do so, activate the switch and enjoy the party.

Discover BotBeard’s Treasure

You will need to obtain 5 Beach Memories before being allowed access to the end of the Beach Area. When you reach this area proceed into the “Dock Shop” shack, then through the door into “The Dock” and down into the Boat. Once the Boat has come to a standstill you can turn around and jump off the back off it. When you are in the water keep moving forward and proceed down the trap door and in “To The Hold”.
There are 3 keys scattered around that you will need to place into the relevant slot on the Treasure Chest to unlock it; one of which you will find in the Oyster Shell that is needed for The World Is Your Oyster Silver. Once all 3 keys have been placed correctly and turned you will need to turn the lock dial to the correct position. The correct position on the lock is random, so turn slowly ensuring you wait a few seconds on each position, to see if the lock unlocks.
After a cut scene the trophy will pop.

Observe the Geyser

You will need to obtain 5 Forest Memories before being allowed access to the end of the Hiking Trail. The Geyser is marked on the Map Board at the start of the trail, so follow the correct routing up to it. When you reach the end of the Trail you will find a “Restart Button”, of which you will need to push and then manipulate the control panel in a certain way –

  1. Turn the wheel until the green line is full & flick down the Yellow/Blue switches.
  2. Slowly turn the 4 wheels until the gauge is fully to the right and the light on top turns Green. Then place the pegs in the relevant holes to turn the lights Green
  3. Move the switches on the left Up/Down so that both the lights are Green
  4. Press the three buttons that appear in order

After a cut scene the trophy will pop.

Pull Out Every Card in the Credits

There are 2 ways to obtain this trophy. The easiest I found was, whilst in the Hub Area reach behind your back and take your backpack off. In the bottom right hand corner of the backpack you will find the “Credits Cards”. Simply grab them one at a time to remove them from the backpack. There is around 65 to remove before the trophy will pop.

The other way is to listen to the credits that will be played out during the “Party” if you chose this way.

2L1ac2b7Mandatory SocializationGold
Talk to 30 Bots at the Party

This must be done in conjunction with Simulation Saved Gold, as you need to activate the “Party Switch” in order for your friend bots to appear. When the party is active move yourself around the area and wave at all the bots within the vicinity and inside the house, ensuring you wave at the bots and that you get an acknowledgement out of them. This will start the “chat” between the 2 of you and you can move onto the next (you do not have to wait for the chat to end).

If you’re struggling with this Trophy, or any of the memories feel free to refer to the below Speed Run for tips and tricks. Credit BradlesMcgee

Find the Pearl in the Sunken Ship

Obtained in the same area as Sunken Treasure Silver, (so you will need to complete 5 memories in this area before you can get to it); you will need to open the Oyster to the right of the Treasure Chest, remove the Key and then close the Oyster again. When you open the Oyster once more the key should have been replaced with the Pearl.

2L1ac2b7Is This Real Gaming?Gold
Play Every Game Cartridge on Vacation Island

One of three trophies that can be obtained with the TV area in your house. On the shelving unit to the left of the TV you will initially find 4 Game Cartridges that you can place into the Game Console. In order to achieve the trophy however, you must find the other 3 cartridges (One in each Vacation Area) and play all 7 different games. When you have found the other 3 cartridges you must store them in you backpack and bring them back to the TV Room to play. You don’t actually have to play them, more just insert them into the console. Make sure you turn the TV on before “playing” the games too.

The 3 other cartridges are found in the following locations:-

  • The Beach Vacation – Located within the water, floating by the Waterfall on the left-hand side.
  • The Forest Vacation – Located within the River where you attempt to catch the fish. You may need to stand in the river for a while for the Cartridge to float on by before you can grab it.
  • The Mountain Cartridge – Located within the Hot Tub and can be obtained at the same time as when you are going for Fish Icing Gold. Make sure it is free from its initial Ice Cube, otherwise it will not work.
2L1ac2b7Fish IcingGold
Return a Fish to the Ice Hole

Whilst in The Mountain Vacation, proceed into “The Lodge”, through to the back and then outside to the Hot Tub. When you are there you will need to turn the temperature dial to Hot (If the panel itself is frozen go back inside the hut and grab a hot drink to pour over it).
When the hot tub has defrosted and the fish has been released from its current ice cube you Can pick it up. Located in the background on the side of the control panel is a frozen lake; it is your task to throw the defrosted fish into the hole in the ice. After doing so the fish will pop back out of the hole in its Ice Cube state again.
Don’t worry if you miss the hole, as the fish will automatically be replaced in the Hot Tub.

When you are there simply throw the smaller mushrooms on the found on the raised area onto the bigger Mushrooms in the background. If you hit a Musical Mushroom it will play a sound at you and on the 20th successful attempt the trophy will be earned.
