New KFC VR Training Game Brings Horror Into The Workplace

Once successfully through all phases of making the chicken, the trainee "feeds" a Colonel Sanders face on a door, and when he approves, they head into the light - are they implying working for KFC is like death? - and then appear in the staff break room at a KFC branch. KFC, seeing an opportunity to make the training process more interactive, has chose to blaze the trail for VR training.

In a press release sent out to overseas media, Kentucky Fried Chicken has announced that it is using a Virtual Reality Fried Chicken Cooking simulator in order to train staff. Employees are locked inside a virtual escape room with Colonel Sanders and his 11 herbs and spices, only able to escape once they've mastered the five steps in creating the chain's Original Recipe chicken: inspecting, rinsing, breading, racking, and pressure frying.

"In 1940 the Colonel was just one man frying chicken by hand". The gamified experience takes about ten minutes, which is less than half of the 25-minute process in real-life KFC kitchens. "Now we have almost 19,000 trained cooks across the USA, but they're still doing it by hand", said George Felix, KFC's USA director of advertising. Now KFC is owning the darker, crispier parts of its brand with a new VR horror game that's become a "bizarre initiation rite" for new employees, according to Eater.

The team of researchers then turned to wine bottles to dive deeper into their results from the first study. Forty-five different labels were ranked on a scale of 1 to 7 based on how clearly a face could be detected in the brand's imagery

Why is KFC using such a unusual training game?

KFC revealed the plan to launch a VR training game to Eater today.

The Virtual Training Escape Room was designed for the Oculus platform using the Rift headset and Touch controllers.
