Classroom Aquatic’s Dolphins Were Initially a Joke
Sunken Places, the developer behind school cheating simulator Classroom Aquatic has revealed that the title’s theme initially started out at a joke. Speaking to VRFocus the team’s Remy Karns explained that the idea for the title grew out of a simple joke one team member made during a pitching session. The title features support for the Oculus Rift virtual reality (VR) headset.
“After twelve hours of pitching hundreds of concepts, one of our members said they wanted to make a game about swimming with dolphins, because “dolphins are smart and humans are stupid”,” Karns said. “Although we wrote down that line just as a joke, it turned out to be the idea that became Classroom Aquatic!”
Classroom Aquatic tasks players with cheating at school activities such as tests and science displays. While you play as a human, fellow classmates are all dolphins. The title recently passed its Kickstarter campaign, gaining $31,315 USD in funding. It’s the developer’s hope to get the title out in December 2014. VRFocus will continue to report on Classroom Aquatic and bring you all the latest.
