XSEED Games announced today that it will be publishing Corpse Party, a twisted horror title that was originally created in RPG maker before being remade for PSP.
In addition to its macabre setting, Corpse Party carries with it a "16-bit flair," and mixes in a 3D audio experience that goes best with headphones in a dark room. Scenarios branch off and—despite there being no true "game over"—gamers will run through a brutal scenario with only one true path toward salvation.
The synopsis, via XSEED's press release:
Corpse Party is an adventure game that uses hand-drawn 2D sprite and tile art to tell the story of a group of Kisaragi Academy High School students who are trapped in a haunted elementary school filled with the decaying corpses and tormented souls of countless children who’d mysteriously vanished from the Japanese countryside years, months or sometimes only days prior. Desperately trying to escape and survive, players will experience unnatural, unnerving and decidedly uncensored horrors through the eyes – and ears -- of these frightened teenaged victims.
The announcement trailer:
Originally developed by Team GrisGris before 5pb adapted it to Sony's portable, Corpse Party will be available this fall exclusively as a download through the PlayStation Store.
