In Cosmonious High, play as a Prismi who crash-lands into their first day at an alien high school. This welcoming place is alive with fun and friendly characters but plagued by mysterious malfunctions. Players will unlock powers, take classes, make friends, and restore Cosmonious High to its former glory.
Featuring VR gestures built to make interactions feel natural, saying hello to your best alien friend is as simple as waving your hand. Characters have unique personalities and will react to the world around them, whether that’s throwing a ball or starting a conversation. The characters and environment come together to make Cosmonious High Owlchemy’s largest sandbox world to-date where players can interact intuitively with almost anything.
Cosmonious High offers a wide range of accessibility features, including a mindful color palette, single-handed playing, dynamic subtitles, and more. Owlchemy Labs applies their “VR for everyone” motto as a key development principle to each of their games, allowing more people to enjoy the full Cosmonious High experience.
“With Owlchemy’s signature VR gestures, character interactions, and reactive environments, Cosmonious High pushes the boundaries of what you’ve come to expect from VR games. We put so much into making the world feel intuitive, responsive, and most importantly, satisfying. We’ve also made accessibility a core pillar of our studio’s development pipeline, ensuring anyone can experience Cosmonious High. We cannot wait for everyone to jump in and see what chaos they can create,” said Devin Reimer, CEO (Chief Executive Owl) of Owlchemy Labs.
