PQube’s English release of the remake of the classic Korean horror game White Day: A Labyrinth Named School has officially launched on Steam. In it, you play as Hee-Min Lee, a student who returns to school after dark to find something that he meant to give one of his classmates. However, he soon discovers that the school is haunted and that the janitor may very well be a murderer. You must guide Hee-Min Lee through the school, staying hidden from the janitor and solving puzzles as you go. You have no weapons, so you can’t fight back; stealth is the only way to survive.
If you’d like to get a look at what the game is like, you can check out my stream from this past Saturday. I can attest to the fact that it is a rather difficult game and that its claims of there being no room for error aren’t unfounded. Basically the moment I was found by the janitor, I was doomed.
White Day: A Labyrinth Named School is now available on Steam for $29.99, temporarily discounted to $25.49 for the week of release. A PlayStation 4 version is set to launch on August 25th.
