The new Video Game High School flash game, which pays homage to vintage 8-bit and 16-bit console games, enables players to relive the most exciting moments of season one with each level of the game inspired by a different style of gameplay. The game specifically ties into the third episode in the series where one of the main characters, “The Law,” is engrossed in a virtual 8-bit representation of the first season of VGHS, where he witnesses the entire story arc and his own demise. “We had so much art that we had to create for Ki’s game in episode 3, we thought it would be fun to actually make it playable,” says co-creator Matt Arnold.
RocketJump Studios in collaboration with Collective Digital Studio launched the highly anticipated second season of Video Game High School on RocketJump.com and YouTube on July 25th. Set in an alternate reality where professional video gaming becomes the biggest spectator sport in the world, Video Game High School 2 once again takes viewers to the campus of the elite competitive gaming academy for a fun-filled thrill ride that mixes drama and comedy with tense action that plays out in the heightened world of video games—from high-octane racing to explosive first person shooters. The first season, created by Freddie Wong and Matt Arnold, garnered more than 55 million views across its nine episodes and behind-the-scenes content to rank among the most watched original scripted digital short-form series of all-time.
