Corpse Party brings its chilling visual-novel style experience to PC
Today fans of Japanese horror games get a real treat, as XSEED Games has announced that the much-lauded cult classic horror adventure, Corpse Party, is now available worldwide for Windows PC on Steam, GOG.com, and the Humble Store by Humble Bundle with exclusive content and features. Originally developed as an independent title by Team GrisGris, and previously released by XSEED Games for the PSP, Corpse Party is a chilling visual novel-style experience that takes players on a terrifying journey where each step could be their last.
Localized directly from the original independent Windows PC version known as Corpse Party: BloodCovered, which has never been released outside of Japan, this PC release of Corpse Party features all of the original art and voice-acting, as well as what XSEED promises is a bevy of new features exclusive to this version.
Among other inclusions, such as multiple endings and scenes that differ from the PSP and upcoming Nintendo 3DS releases, this version apparently boasts four bonus chapters on top of the game’s five main story chapters. One of these is a PC-exclusive retelling of the “Tooth” story from Corpse Party: Book of Shadows, recreated with added content in classic Corpse Party adventure style. Players seeking to complete every ending will find that this version also contains a speedy fast-forward function for seamless replayability.
In case you haven’t heard of it yet, Corpse Party is a game in which players take control of a group of Japanese high school students who inadvertently engage in a pagan ritual and find themselves inexplicably transported into a whole other space: an inescapable echo of a long-since demolished school building where a series of gruesome murders once took place. They must now evade the grasp of the tortured souls who roam the halls of the doomed Heavenly Host Elementary, lest they join the ranks of the dead themselves.
Developed by Team GrisGris and published by XSEED Games, Corpse Party is now available on Steam, GOG.com, and the Humble Store by Humble Bundle for $14.99. To learn more about the game, check out the official Steam website here.
