Plot

The game takes place in contemporary Japan. The main characters are students who learn in Kisaragi high school which was build in place of the demolished grade school, in which a terrible and unsolved crime has occurred, ending in death of children and teachers. One night, due to some unexplainable events, the protagonists are moved to a terrifying and grotesque version of their school. The weird building contains much more secrets than one could expect and the students are unable to escape. Soon, they discover decomposing corpses on the corridors. What’s worse, they must face revenge-seeking, tormented souls of dead children. This is how the story of the game, filled with violence, fear and cruelty, starts. A story that will strip some of the main characters of their humanity and common sense.

Mechanics

Corpse Party for Apple iOS has few different endings obtaining which is determined by choices made during the game. In difference to many other visual novels, the game contains exploration sequences and even action scenes. The character is controlled on a map which depicts school corridors: in this mode the graphics of the game are based on typical 16-bit jRPG games. During dialogues and important story events one only sees hand-drawn backgrounds and changing character portraits. It is worth mentioning that the game has high quality sounds with a surround effect and a full voice dubbing.
