Classroom Aquatic, the underwater tale of an exchange student cheating their way to the top of the class, will be released on the upcoming PlayStation VR headset. Designed by Remy Karns and his team at Sunken Places, the game is uniquely built from the ground up for Virtual Reality in order to make sure that every movement counts.
As Karns himself said, “The good news is, we all know how to cheat: just look over at your neighbors’ tests and copy their answers. Don’t worry — dolphins are very smart — they always know the right answers. But they also know when you’re trying to cheat, and the more obvious you are, the harder they’ll try to hide their answers. And if you get them too angry, they’ll tattle to the teacher!”
The game exists within a three dimensional world that incorporates every movement of your headset, in contrast to the position of every other character in the world. Different teachers have different ways of monitoring the classroom for cheaters, be it from their desk or by patrolling over students. Other students might not be so reluctant to give up information. Needless to say, they all know what you’re trying to do.
The initial announcement was confirmed through the official PlayStation blog, but a few questions are still left unanswered. Classroom Aquatic was not initially built for PlaySation VR, so does this mean it is now a PS exclusive, or will it be available for all platforms?
There is no release date yet for Classroom Aquatic or PlayStation VR, but they both are expected to be released sometime in early 2016.
