The survival horror genre has seen many classic games since its inception, with titles such as Silent Hill, Clock Tower and Resident Evil standing out as their greatest successes. Originally released in 2010 for Korean PC gamers, White Day was a horror game set in a high school plagued by terrors both natural and supernatural. Last year, it was announced that the game would receive a high definition remake for PC, mobile devices and consoles, with the added subtitle A Labyrinth Named School and the debut of an official Western localisation.
After breaking into his new high school on a traditional Asian holiday known as White Day, a young student named Lee Hui-min proceeds to leave a chocolate gift and return an important item belonging to his crush, a girl named Han So-young. The plan goes horribly wrong when he becomes trapped inside the building along with Han and several other students, and his life is threatened by supernatural creatures and possessed staff members such as the murderous janitor named Lee Bong-gu.
Like the original version of the game, A Labyrinth Named School’s gameplay is presented from a first person perspective. The main aim is to find a way to escape the school and rescue your imprisoned classmates, by collecting several important items such as a screwdriver and solving several puzzles that require both intellect and speed to prevent you from being targeted by the various evils you will encounter. As well as key items, you will discover notes and documents which detail the dark history of Yeondu High School, which certainly help to build the atmosphere that survivor horror fans have come to expect.
