Owlchemy Labs' Andrew Eiche on bringing high school to space in Cosmonious High

The game lets you attend uniquely named classes like Chemosophy and Visualytics.


Gamers may be familiar with developer Owlchemy Labs from their work on memorable VR titles like Job Simulator and Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality. Now, Owlchemy Labs is back at it with a brand new VR game, Cosmonious High.

In Cosmonious High, players get to take on the “new kid” role in an alien high school located out in the far reaches of outer space. The areas you’re able to explore in the game are all colorful and unique, and Cosmonious High reportedly boasts the biggest space ever built by Owlchemy Labs.

Eager to learn more about this exciting VR experience, Shacknews’ own TJ Denzer recently conducted an interview with Owlchemy Labs’ Chief Operating Owl (COOwl) and resident Cable Slinger, Andrew Eiche. In the interview, we get to learn more about some of the activities players can partake in, including classes like Chemosophy.

Using Chemosophy as an example, Eiche notes that players can mix chemicals together and add heat to create elements like Bouncium which can turn things bouncy in the game. And if you’re an ambitious student, there are also opportunities to do a little extra credit work in classes like Visualytics as well.

Cosmonious High lets you attend an alien high school in outer space and attend classes with fun names like Chemosophy.

Intrigued by the core premise of the game, TJ asks Eiche why Owlchemy Labs went with a high school setting.

Later on in the interview, the question of the core development philosophy of Owlchemy Labs is also brought up. With this, Eiche emphasizes the goal of making VR games that everyone can enjoy.

Whether you’re a fan of Owlchemy Labs, or the game Cosmonious High simply piqued your curiosity and you want to learn more about it, we recommend watching the full interview with Andrew Eiche over on GamerHubTV.

      As a student and avid gamer, I understand the teacher's concerns about students playing Fortnite mobile in class. It can be distracting and hinder their ability to focus on schoolwork. Therefore, it's great to see Epic Games responding to the teacher's request and adding a warning to the loading screen. This shows that the company values its players' feedback and takes their concerns seriously. It's a clever way to address the issue and, hopefully, encourage students to prioritize their education while still enjoying the game outside school. Using resources like https://assignmentbro.com/ca/pay-for-homework students can manage their time effectively and ensure they have enough time for school responsibilities and gaming hobbies. This case is a fantastic example of effective communication from a company showing commitment to its player community.
