Classroom Aquatic, the "stealth/trivia cheat-em-up" from developer Sunken Places, is entering its final week on Kickstarter with about half the funding developers are seeking.
The game puts players in role of a dolphin exchange student forced to take a test they haven't prepared for. The solution? Cheating, stealthy or blatant. Sunken Places plans a campaign that lasts an entire semester and spans three more game modes. In Science Fair, the only way to win is by ruining everybody else's project. At the School Dance, you accept two invitations to the Back to the Future-inspired "Enchantment Over The Land" dance. In Detention mode, other students copy off of you, and you can help them fail.
As of this writing, Classroom Aquatic's Kickstarter project has received $15,747 of its $30,000 goal from 305 backers with nine days remaining. For more on the game, which is in development for Linux, Mac and Windows PC and will support the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset, be sure to check out a recent opinion piece that uses the game as an example of "real" next-gen gameplay.
