The game has heavy local multiplayer focus. The Playroom VR consists of 5 minigames: Cat and Mouse, Ghost House, Monster Escape, Wanted and Robots Rescue.
In Cat and Mouse, the player with VR is a cat, and TV players are mice. The mice’s goal is to collect pieces of cheese scattered across the kitchen floor without being noticed, while cat must catch the mice. The cat can only notice mice when they are moving.
Ghost House is a cooperative minigame where players clear a haunted house from ghosts. The VR Player has a vacuum cleaner that sucks ghosts in and can scan parts of the room to find them. However, only TV players can see the ghost so they must explain the ghost hunter their placement.
