The Coma: Recut

A refreshed version of a successful survival horror that came out in 2015. The Coma: Recut is set in the Sehwa high-school in South Korea. Youngho is the protagonist - having spent the entire night studying, he falls asleep during an exam. Once awake, Youngho realizes that he is alone in the classroom and it is already dark outside. However, the true nightmare begins when it turns out that the school is dominated by monsters and an insane killer is walking its hallways. Because Youngho is unarmed, in order to survive, he has to avoid contact with enemies, hide from them, or even run when it is necessary. Exploring the school buildings in search for an exit constitutes the core element of the experience. On his way, the protagonist gathers useful items, such as a flashlight, maps or notes.

The Coma: Recut for PlayStation 4 is a refreshed version of a well-received adventure game in the form of a survival horror, which debuted on PCs back in 2015. Contrary to the original edition, The Coma: Recut came out for PCs, as well as for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles, developed by the independent, Devespresso Games.

Plot

The player is taken to South Korea, and precisely, to the Sehwa high-school. The player meets the protagonist - Youngho, when he falls asleep during his CSAT exam, having spent his entire last night studying. Once awake, the protagonist realizes it is already night outside and he is alone in the class. What is worse however, it soon also turns out that the school is dominated by monsters and an insane killer is walking its hallways. Youngho has no other choice but to take up the difficult fight for survival and try to leave the place before something very bad happens to him.

Mechanics

The Coma: Recut for PlayStation 4 borrows a lot from other games of this kind. Exploring the school buildings constitutes the core part of the experience. The school comprises three extensive structures, where the player encounters a lot of the aformentioned creatures, but also traps and other threats. The protagonist gathers useful parts of equipment throughout the adventure and stores them in a small backpack - such items include mainly the flashlight (the most important), maps, notes and tips that get them acquainted with stories of teachers and other students. From time to time, the protagonist has to cooperate with other victims of these harsh circumstances, for example, while solving more or less complicated puzzles.

Because Youngho is unarmed, he has to avoid direct confrontation with enemies in order to survive (this can be achieved through listening to the sounds generated by footsteps), and remain hidden through sticking to darkness or making use of large cabinets to hide. When it is necessary, the protagonist has to sneak behind the enemies' backs or run when he gets spotted. Getting caught by the adversaries will at least take away a few points of Youngho's life energy. Replenishing health points requires the player to be in possession of special items designed specifically for healing.

Technical aspects

Compared with the original version, The Coma: Recut for PlayStation 4 brings mainly improved visuals. More detailed textures are accompanied by new character animations. The game's soundtrack constitutes an important factor in creating the gloomy atmosphere present.
