VR developer Owlchemy Labs, better known for its colorful titles Job Simulator and Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality. The studio has now unveiled its latest project, Cosmonius High, that takes you back to high school. The title is set to be unveiled in 2022. Cosmonius High keeps to Owlchemy Labs fun-loving and fun-filled formula that was seen in previous games such as Job Simulator and Vacation Simulator. However, in its latest game which is scheduled for the 2022 release, the studio is introducing even more chaos.
Cosmonious High is a high school for aliens that features a quirky cast of characters as well as various interactive features guaranteed to keep you busy throughout the game. You will play an alien that has crash-landed into the high school during the first days of class. You will be mastering how you can unlock and deploy special powers to help repair the school and return it to its previous state.
Cosmonious High will be the biggest VR world unveiled by Owlchemy Labs so far. The game features a dynamic set of characters capable of responding to natural gestures such as fist bumps and high-fives. The game has been designed as one big interactive playground with the school being filled with a number of mysterious malfunctions that need to be sorted out although you must also ensure that you attend class as you are a student in the game.
There is a lot happening in Cosmonious High including the crashing of meteorites via the walls, the random breaking out of fires, and even your hands magically adapting to a number of situations such as turning into water so as to put out the flames. The game is not all about work as players also have the freedom to explore the school and also chat with their students in the Grand Hall. They can also head to Chemosophy and do some experiments.
Owlchemy Labs’ Product Director Chelsea Howe stated that Cosmonious High is “breaking all the bounds“ and players will be able to go anywhere and interact with any character in the game that they see. Players will also use their special powers to cause or resolve “as much chaos as they want”.
Cosmonious High is characteristic of Owlchemy Labs’ other immersive experiences that incorporate the developer’s unique brand of humor and style. Owlchemy Labs’ COOwl (Chief Operating Owl) Andrew Eiche stated that the experience would familiar to its long-time fans even as the studio welcomes new players to try out the experience.
Cosmonious High is set to launch in Spring 2022 to Oculus Quest and SteamVR headsets.
