Sunken Places’ Classroom Aquatic has officially passed its Steam Greenlight campaign. This means that the title, which supports virtual reality (VR) through use of the Oculus Rift headset, will come to Valve’s digital storefront upon release. The developer is aiming to launch the experience in December 2014.
“This is awesome news: not only will Classroom Aquatic be released on the best digital distribution platform named after a state of water, but we may be able to host our forever-free demo on our Steam page!” the team’s Remy Karns wrote on a Kickstarter update, “No more confusing torrents! Automatic updates! WOO!”
Classroom Aquatic is a unique first-person experience in which players must cheat to pass a test that they haven’t prepared for. Players can use the Oculus Rift to look over at fellow classmate’s papers, trying not to get caught. Said classmates are, in fact, dolphins.
The title recently made the rounds at the South By South West (SXSW) Gaming Festival in Austin, Texas. It also managed to pass its $30,000 Kickstarter target before the campaign came to a close on 6th March, 2014. VRFocus will continue to follow Classroom Aquatic‘s progress and report back with any more news.
