Sunken Places, developer of the highly anticipated virtual reality (VR) trivia videogame, Classroom Aquatic, has announced that a new demo version will be released ‘soon’. Classroom Aquatic is currently in development for Windows, Mac and Linux PC formats and will be compatible with the Oculus Rift head-mounted display (HMD), with a potential PlayStation 4 release also being hinted at.
Expected to launch this May, Classroom Aquatic is a trivia videogame in which players are encouraged to cheat by looking at the answers given by their classmates. However, other students – who happen to be dolphins – and the class tutor won’t take kindly to such disregard for the rules, and as such the player must use distraction techniques in order to not be discovered.
In a recent update to Classroom Aquatic‘s Kickstarter campaign, Sunken Places revealed some details of the new demo version: “On the technical side (which is something Dr. Delphinidae likes), we’ve created a new way to project test questions to make them more legible (you can’t cheat off what you can’t see). This was done in conjunction with a super-secret new demo. We’ll be releasing details about it soon, but for now just imagine saying “Oh man, this is awesome! And the text is so legible!” over and over while playing our new version of the demo.”
Classroom Aquatic benefited from a successful Kickstarter campaign last year and has since been Greenlit on Steam. VRFocus will keep you updated with all the latest details on Classroom Aquatic and other VR projects from Sunken Places.
