CIB Sunday #15 – ‘Corpse Party: Back to School Edition’

'Corpse Party' is a series I'd heard about for a long time, being a big fan of horror video games. However, the games were only available on Steam and PS Vita for a long time, and I didn't have access to either back then. A few years ago, I was browsing 3DS video games on Amazon, when I saw that a remake of the original 'Corpse Party' was available for pre-order. I ended up being gifted the game that same year for Christmas, and of course, started playing it right away. Did it live up to all the hype, though? I certainly think so. There are several key reasons why the game is so good, a few of which I'll be going over in this post. Read on to find out more!

So, I was super excited for 'Dark Moon' to come out! But, did the game hold up to my high expectations?

Some of these improvements include new voice-acting and a brand new eighth chapter to explore.
