It’s time to go out and touch grass, or rather cut it, because Lawn Mowing Simulator is now available on Quest 2/3/Pro.

UK-based studios Curve Games and Skyhook Games originally released Lawn Mowing Simulator on flatscreen monitors back in 2021, which included everything from modest country homes to palatial gardens ready for the trimming—all of which are patently British.

The VR version of the game, which is precisely what it says on the tin, includes all of that in addition to the game’s roster of licensed lawn mowers and string trimmers from manufacturers such as STIGA, SCAG, and EGO.

Besides trimming the grass and watching out for obstacles, you’ll also need to transport and maintain your equipment, making sure you have enough fuel, batteries, and sharp blades to get the job done.

There’s no word on whether we can expect PC VR support for the game on Steam, as for now Lawn Mowing Simulator VR is a Quest exclusive, supporting Quest 2/3/Pro, which you can find on the Quest Store, priced at $20.

    PCVR may have Half-Life: Alyx, but Quest at least has Vertigo Remastered.
    PCVR may have Skyrim, but Quest at least has Orbis.
    PCVR may have MSFS, but Quest at least has Ultrawings 2.
    PCVR may have No Man’s Sky, but Quest at least has End Space.
    PCVR may have Eurotruck Simulator, but Quest at least has Lawn Mowing Simulator.

    And here I was playing all of my “lackluster” PSVR2 lineup of games like Resident Evil, Gran Turismo, Legendary Tales, Synapse, etc when I should be playing a lawn mower sim. Experience what it is like to mow a lawn now in 16 colors in your quest mobile headset. Next up, Paint Dry Sim. Watch as your favorite beige colors dry on objects in a low lit environment now out on Quest 3 with a new MR mode.

      I would have laughed but I gave Power Wash Simulator a try over Christmas and I was taken aback by how pleasantly relaxing and addictive it was. Sometimes it’s just what you’re in the mood for.

      To be fair, Vermillion or Painting VR allow for way more than just watching the paint dry. You may be able to pick the color of your car in GT7, but are you able to mix your own color using a power drill in zero gravity mode? I don’t think so!!!

      You are clearly missing out on some core VR experiences. And who knows, maybe the one thing missing in your life has been mowing a virtual lawn, you just never realized, because you never had the chance to experience it. Now your time has finally come.

    If there’s one thing that gets me almost sexually excited, it’s a lawn mowing simulator, exclusively on Quest, so all those awful PCVR players are locked out and have to go to Gorilla Tag(!) etc, or your Praydog mods, blah-blah-blah .

    No doubt I should be blocked so these aren’t seen, but I know who DOES read them, and I send them my love and best wishes.

        …did you just forget to change accounts before trying to get into an argument with yourself?

          No, that is an imposter account.

    I have a similar game, but with better graphics: it’s called a garden.

  • wowgivemeabreak

    I live in a rural area and have 5 acres that I keep maintained. I can say that using a riding mower and cutting grass is pretty peaceful when you have your tunes going yet I don’t think that peace will translate all that well in a game like this.

      I can imagine a huge part of joy is the proper ‘force feedback’ from driving around.
      Just like driving a car, you feel so much of the world through vibrations and it’s far more intuitive.
