Welcome to the abandoned and (reportedly) demolished halls of Heavenly Host Elementary School, where vengeful spirits dwell and the fires of corporeal existence are repeatedly and mercilessly snuffed. We hope you enjoy the tour, as it's not about to end anytime soon. It may even last an eternity...
At this accursed school, a series of incidents occurred in which, ultimately, four students were kidnapped...and murdered. And though this occurred 30 years ago, the corpse party still continues to this very day.
Now, at a perfectly ordinary high school, one unlucky class representative with a penchant for telling ghost stories makes the mistake of invoking a forbidden charm known as "Sachiko Ever After." This charm unknowingly serves as an invitation to another space – a shifting, almost sentient echo of the long-closed school wherein these horrific mutilations occurred so long ago.
And once you've been invited to this party, you have no choice but to attend.
Willingly or no, all who find themselves in the dilapidated halls of Heavenly Host must persevere, for their only companions along the way are the mournful spirits of the dead and forgotten...as well as with a few who consider themselves the very arbiters of life and death. Will you remain a guest here forevermore? Or will you have the power to defy the saddest and strongest fate of all...?
Find Clues Among the Carnage
If you see a person, ghost or object of interest lying around, approach it and press the interact button to speak with or examine it. Under certain circumstances, you may be prompted to pick up a useful item and add it to your inventory. Most items are used automatically when the story calls for it, though some (such as keys) are used by pressing the interact button to examine their corresponding doors, desks, cabinets, etc. The game is all about making use of your surroundings, so be sure to speak with or examine anyone and anything multiple times - unless you have reason to believe doing so may be harmful to your health.

Catalogue the Damned
Throughout the game, the corpses of those who’ve come before you can be found strewn about, in varying states of decay. Since virtually every one of your unfortunate predecessors was a student in the Japanese school system, most of them were wearing student ID name tags when they died, allowing you to chronicle their names, ages and affiliations with little difficulty. Each time you discover a name tag of the departed, the information you glean from it (along with the victim’s cause of death, when apparent) will be recorded in your "Name Tag List," accessible from the main menu.

Escape, or Die Trying
Corpse Party (2021) has more branches than a scary old tree, and every decision you make leads you closer and closer to one of its many endings. There’s one "proper end" per chapter – the way the story is meant to unfold, unlocking the next chapter when viewed. There are countless "bad ends" throughout the game – horrific scenes of bloody demise that result from bad decisions, or even just from being in the wrong place at the wrong time. And then there are a small handful of "extra endings," signifying alternate points of closure for the story. You can see which endings you’ve attained thus far through the "Ending List" accessible from the option menu.
