You just can't keep a Corpse Party down, but you can break it up into bits. Such is the case with Corpse Party 2: Dead Patient, a four-part sequel to Blood Drive that has just debuted for Windows PC.
Set five years after the events of its predecessor (though no prior knowledge is necessary), the new game stars an "average junior high school student, Ayame Itou," who finds her life "turned upside down in the most unsettling way possible." After waking from a coma "strapped to an operating table in a ransacked and seemingly abandoned hospital called 'Amare Patriarcha Crucis,' Ayame realizes she’s locked in without any means of escape and with virtually no memories of her past." Nor is she alone, but whether the others in there with her "are friend or foe remains to be discovered."
As to be expected from the Corpse Party franchise, Dead Patient is presented using 3D environments and anime-inspired characters viewed from a bird's eye perspective. Gameplay will be familiar to returning fans as well, with a blend of traditional adventuring and survival horror elements that sees players "explore the hospital, solving inventory-based puzzles, collecting medical charts of deceased patients, and avoiding terrifying zombie-like pursuers in order to find much-needed answers, as well as – hopefully – a way out."
Corpse Party 2: Dead Patient will comprise four installments in total, with the first available today for Windows PC on Steam, GOG and the Humble Store. The remaining three games will be released individually as they are completed by Team GrisGris.
