NOTE: This title is a followup to Corpse Party, and thus contains considerable spoilers for that game. If you have not played it, then I beg thee delve farther into these depths at your own risk, dear player!

An anthology series that serves as a Corpse Party sequel, prequel, midquel, and alternate universe tale all in one, Corpse Party: Book of Shadows is a horror/adventure game developed by MAGES. (formerly 5pb. Games) and published under the supervision of the original series creators at Team GrisGris. Corpse Party: Book of Shadows builds upon the events of the first game, exploring or re-exploring past incidents, characters, and points of view, and allowing the player to escape many of the deaths that occurred previously, thus steering them toward all-new (albeit not necessarily better) outcomes.

This PC version updates the original PSP system version’s art to HD and adds full mouse support for authentic point-and-click gameplay, providing the definitive Corpse Party: Book of Shadows experience for series fans who are eager to delve a little deeper into its storied lore.

Before, during, and after the events of Corpse Party—in the canon universe, as well as in several alternate timelines—the students of Kisaragi Academy, Byakudan Senior High, Paulownia High, and Musashigawa Middle School had far more experiences within the cursed halls of Heavenly Host Elementary than the stories typically recount. How would events have unfolded, for example, in a universe where each student went into the Sachiko Ever After ritual with an unconscious awareness of everything that was going to happen to them? What might’ve occurred to Mayu if she’d never interacted with the ghostly children in the school infirmary? What might’ve occurred to Yuka if she’d been caught during the harrowing chase in the second wing? What might’ve occurred to Seiko if Naomi had gotten to the bathroom just a bit earlier?

On the other side of the coin, how did Naho actually get into Heavenly Host, and whom did she come with? What was Tohko’s relationship with Kizami, and how did that result in a lost tooth? And what connection did Ms. Yui have to the cursed elementary school prior to ever taking part in the Sachiko Ever After ritual?

Most crucially, what happened to the survivors of the previous incident after their escape? How did the loss of their friends affect them? And what does all of this have to do with the mysterious tome known as the “Book of Shadows”…?

  • Point-and-Click-Style First-Person Gameplay

    More realistically proportioned and immersive first-person environments bring Heavenly Host to life in all its grim glory, with point-and-click-style “Search Mode” allowing players to scour every inch of every room via keyboard, gamepad, mouse, or any combination thereof…

  • Original Japanese Voiceovers with More 3D Audio Than Ever Before

    Every line of dialogue is spoken in its original Japanese by a who’s who of Japanese voiceover talent, with many crucial scenes recorded in binaural 3D using dummy-head microphones: play with quality headphones or a hi-fi stereo setup to hear the horror coming from all around you, or perhaps from right next to your ear…

  • Dastardly “Darkening” System Leads to Painful Demise

    Characters gradually become frightened and unstable as horrific discoveries are made, distorting the game’s graphics and altering their decision-making abilities; continuing down these darkened paths will result in one of the game’s many dozens of gruesome “Wrong Ends,” all of which are virtually guaranteed to replay in players’ nightmares…

  • Enhanced Focus on Side Characters

    The already robust cast from the original game is further humanized, with a focus on those characters whose screen time may have been lacking before; learn more about your favorite side characters, and find out just what was going on in their heads (before those heads were crushed)…

  • Unlockables, Achievements, and More

    Steam achievements, collectibles, voice cast interviews, music tracks, art stills, and more are unlockable through a variety of means for attentive and detail-oriented players; additionally, those who’ve conquered or even just dabbled in the first Corpse Party will be able to import their save-data to unlock dozens more art stills, and possibly even make the crucial final chapter of the story available to play through a bit sooner than it otherwise would be…

Corpse Party: Book of Shadows reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Russian
The Debials review Game about juvenile debils, who make a debil ritual and fall into a debil abandoned school with traps and ghosts. Minor Debilam, little to get into the W * pu, underage devils all the forces trying not to be saved, and as quickly as possible or slower to die. Underage Debili, consider other juvenile Debilov underage debil and try not to trust them. Some underage debils, enjoy the fact that they are in a situation with young devils. Someone starts to masturbate violently on corpses, and someone, itself starts to kill. Underage Debili, going to a pile and talk about how to stick together, but the young devils, and they are underage, and for any reason, even if the fly flies, to run and die one at a time. Underage Devils do not think head, underage devils try to do everything in order to die by effect. What to say here, if a normal person nailed his neck with a sliding door, it will hurt a little, then a minor Debil chop her up with a guillotine. In General, underage devils die from accidental spitting and their demise is so ridiculous that you close your face with your hands, as if you started to watch "Destination" again. A Game about juvenile debils, for the debils who like similar horror with dismembered and other cattle. Personally, I liked the atmosphere, it hurts well, transferred. But after the middle of the game, you get tired, all the chips of the game are already lost and become not interesting. Complete non-logical delirium in the actions of characters and other plot d * RMA. The Total is Shorter than the average, if it is not worth buying, but the atmosphere has taken, so I can not put a negative. 6 out of 10

Corpse Party: Book of Shadows Plot The plot begins with what is prehistory, as well as additions to the past wrong endings, which will tell even more history, for example, in one part, was the ending, where they held the ritual again incorrectly, But the day began to begin, where only Satoshi possessed a memory for everything that happened, because it is interesting what will happen next, when, he who was already there, but came back and tried to fix something or not? Fans of the last part, who have absorbed in general the idea of the game with these wrong endings, which will be present here, only more like the game, because the endings are even more, and also present the continuation of some of them, prehistory to Many characters or explanations. Also, do not forget that there are also icons of corpses, where everything is also described as they died, this also applies to the story, but to understand it can be played in it, it is still good that they did not miss it, as could be missed by many. Other Generally, the CP series is a long-standing classic, like many other horror games that have been made before, that it can be played just for the acquaintance, but definitely need to start with one part, without it is pointless to play this, it is advisable that you still Got all the endings in the first part, so if you did not play first, then do not buy this, buy the first part or play a more advanced reissue on the PSP, emulator, and then go back to this, you will also notice that this part is already made in the form of a novel, not As one part, but it does not spoil the relationship to the game because it is all also done well, and the novella makes it only atmospheric, as well as music, which is simply chic. The Result of the Game is worth taking, if you passed the first part and you liked it, especially if you have completely passed the first, opened there all the endings, as already wrote. But Here you need knowledge of English, it is a pity that the translation of the PSP version can not transfer here, because so only more would have played this game, but still there is enough average knowledge of English to understand everything. It is possible to Take at full price as in many regions the adequate price is put, instead of inflated, as now costs on many games, especially at games of known publishers.
