If I had the chance to go back and cheat off of a dolphin for every test I ever took in school, I would. Dolphins are smart, so they clearly have all the right answers. Luckily, we can all get the chance to steal some answers from dolphins in Classroom Aquatic, but let’s be honest, we’ve all been there. Initially proposed on Kickstarter to be developed for the Oculus Rift, Remy Karms, a designer at Sunken Places, revealed plans to release Classroom Aquatic for use with PlayStation VR as well.
The premise is simple: you are a foreign exchange diver student about to take an exam in a classroom full of dolphins, but it’s a particularly difficult exam that you have not studied for. You can lean on over and peer over the shoulders– Wait, do dolphins have shoulders? I guess peer over their fins, and see what information you can snipe to pass the test.
The more you bother the dolphins, though, the more annoyed they get, and they might cover their answers or tell the teacher on you. The teacher can also catch you in the act, and I imagine you’d be expelled back to a regular school on the surface. The entire game has been optimized for virtual reality, so it should be quite the experience on both Oculus Rift and PlayStation VR.
For the time being, Karms will be answering questions and feedback on the PlayStation Blog, and we’ll be updating you with more news on PlayStation VR on its way to release Q1 2016.
