Schell Games is releasing HistoryMaker VR on Steam just in time for the new school year that’ll let players embody a range of historical figures.
The software allows students to import scripts and record videos embodied as historical figures such as Benjamin Franklin, Harriet Tubman, Tecumseh, George Washington Carver, Abigail Adams, and others.
HistoryMaker VR is directed at middle school students and meant to enable them to deliver speeches in VR embodied as one of eight characters from United States history. Stages can be customized with various backgrounds and props and videos can be exported and then edited for review by teachers or classmates.
HistoryMaker VR is available now on Steam for $9.99 (there’s also a temporary discount as of this writing) with compatibility mentioned for the Oculus Rift and Rift S, but it is also pitched as being free for educators with complementary desktop software for managing a classroom and helping students.
