The Coma 2: Vicious Sisters
Headup Games have shared some more details and screenshots for The Coma 2: Vicious Sisters:
The Coma 2: Vicious Sisters continues the dark story introduced in The Coma: Recut with a new protagonist, Mina Park, a side-character from the first game. Players unfamiliar with the first game’s story will have no trouble diving in and must survive a sinister shadow realm while eluding the clutches of a relentless, psychotic slasher. While on the run, players must balance exploration and dangerous encounters to survive the night or suffer multiple endings and possible perma-damage. Distinctly Korean with lore going back for decades, the second installment explores the universal themes of friendship, bullying, and the pressures of academic achievement.
Mina Park, a student of Sehwa High, awakens in the dead of night in her school. It isn’t long before she realizes that something is amiss. The once-familiar school where she spends her evenings studying looks twisted by something dark and sinister. She finds herself pursued by someone or something that looks eerily like her English teacher. To survive, Mina must venture beyond the boundaries of her school and into the surrounding district. There, she will encounter strange creatures, mysterious strangers, and uneasy allies.
The game will be playable in the following languages: English, Korean, French, German, Russian, Simplified Chinese, Ukrainian, Spanish, Thai, Portuguese, and Brazilian Portuguese.
