Class of '09 paints a picture of teenage life in high school in a satirical sim, out now on Android and Steam

Developer SBN3's satiric take on the perils of high school and teenage life lands on Android devices and on Steam today with Class of '09. Featuring fully voiced dialogue and fifteen different endings, the so-called "anti visual novel" delves deep into taboo topics through the eyes of a vulgar and cynical high school sophomore.

In Class of '09, players step into the shoes of Nicole in this "rejection sim" where students and teachers are just terrible, terrible people. The black comedy tackles everything from racism to suicide in an unapologetic manner. You can skip class, sabotage people, and of course, change clothes all with a late 2000's aesthetic.

“Class of ‘09 is the most accurate depiction of American high school culture we might ever get in a video game. 2007-2009 was a time of unmitigated vulgarity, projected angst, and a total blind eye to the things most of us would expect call-out posts for today,” says SBN3. “Play with the looks of an e-girl but the mind of a mental assassin. It's a tightrope sort of experience where if the player is too reserved things end badly for her. Play with a sense of reckless abandonment and you’ll unlock everything Class of ‘09 has to offer. ”
