White Day: A Labyrinth Named School (화이트데이: 학교라는 이름의 미궁). The story of a young man's trip into school at the dead of night to deliver some candy in preparation for the Eastern Holiday of the same name, White Day (the South Korean/Japanese equivalent of Valentine's Day) to 'So-yeong', a girl at school he likes, and to return the diary she left behind. Finding himself locked up soon after entering, escaping the school now becomes a nightmare...
Scarier than Amnesia... Right now making a let's play of it, and I have to say this game is terrifying! It's long, has alot of complicated puzzles but the atmosphere is... oh god... If you are looking for a game in which you crap yourself, this is your game.
The game is terrifying indeed, when I begun it was slow at first, but then as the build up became more and more evident, the scares got to me good. I will admit, I've died plenty of times, even rage quitted over a jumpscare, sure there may some bugs but I can live with them, only one actual annoying bug can kill the game (the classroom ceiling ghosts, tossing you out of the classroom and preventing you from moving on basically), at least from my experience, but I have yet to try Hard and Real modes, they are next to be tried out, let the scares begin >:D
A good horror game, especially for its time.
The game is difficult. There's no combat, and you're going to do a lot of running. I'm not going to spoil much of the plot, or any, but it's got the same kind of premise/story as the common Asian horror movie today. It is played from a first person perspective, and the graphics are pretty good. The story is solid, dialogue (although translation is...so-so...) is good, and there are a lot of choices that affect the outcome of the game. Enemies are terrifying at times, sometimes frustrating. The one thing I do not like about this game, and to touch up on *frustrating*, are the "janitors".
Basically, possessed baseball bat wielding janitors that run around trying to kill you throughout. It truly ruins the horror/suspense aspect of the game, and while, through the opening, running down a hall being chased by a homicidal maniac can be fun, when you're trying to solve puzzles, mysteries, or generally advance in the game, it gets frustrating when there's a guy right on top of you who simply won't go away.
Some of the ghosts are a bit cliché or kinda stupid to some extent, like there's a very slow stalker like enemy that appears out of the corner of your eye, and it is pretty much a spliced "ghost photo" that you can actually find on the internet. Being able to exploit that fact about the corner of your eye makes it boring and ruins the fun as well. That being said, there is some well-done horror in this game with some truly terrifying enemies, some edgy suspense, and some terrifying jump scares.
It's a game worth playing that, if you feel hardcore, going back to play for all the endings, but otherwise, you won't really go back to.
The game is very scary, fun, and solid, and I recommend it to fans of Amnesia, Silent Hill, those Asian horror flicks.
