The Coma is the debut title from Korean independent game developer, Devespresso Games. It’s a 2D survival-horror adventure game set in an abandoned high school. Make your way through the haunted school, packed full of dangerous sights and traps.
The school’s hellish corridors are not all you must contend with. Your fellow classmates and teachers have warped into frightening ghosts. Even worse, there’s a psychotic killer on the loose who will stop at nothing to hunt you down.
In this unthinkable situation, your choice is clear: figure out what brought you here and escape the nightmare. Unfortunately, it seems that your school and its inhabitants have other intentions.
The Coma launches on Steam on October 19th.
Run & Hide: With no escape in sight, Youngho must roam the halls of his school at night searching for a way out. During this journey he will encounter many threats hell-bent on killing him. Running is the best way to avoid danger — unfortunately, Youngho isn’t much of an athlete, so he won’t be able to run for long. Find a place to hide from danger!
Explore: The Coma is a harsh world. This twisted reality of your high school knows no kindness. Use maps, notes, and tips from other characters to navigate your way through the world and figure out how you became trapped in such a bleak place.
Survive & Escape: Everything is out to get you. Youngho will have to avoid a persistent killer, living vines, and more to survive the school. Unfortunately, health is in short supply, and if you’re not careful, you will die. The good news is that save-points provide a welcome breather from the onslaught of things that are out to get you.
Korean Horror: The Coma provides a glimpse — albeit a horrific one — into the life of Korea’s overworked high school students. Enjoy the infusion of Korean culture into the survival horror genre.
Content: As Youngho, you must navigate through the three connected buildings of your high school using the help of NPCs and your own wits. Along the way, you will find unlockable art, notes, and easter eggs that expand on The Coma universe. Oh yeah, and a relentless killer, several traps, and a lot of game overs.
