Overview

White Day: A Labyrinth Named School is a re-imagining of the Korean horror game of the same name that was initially released by Sonnori in 2001. Just like the original title, White Day is a first-person adventure game about a student trapped inside his high school after dark while being hunted by a murderous janitor that stalks the school's halls. The remake was created by a company founded by the development team of the first White Day called ROI Games along with another developer named Gachyon Soft.

The title was released in South Korea for Android devices on November 19, 2015 with an iOS release following soon after on December 18th. White Day would later be released internationally on March 11, 2016 for both Android and iOS, however sometime in April the game was re-branded as "The School: White Day" on all English mobile store fronts. A PC and PlayStation 4 port of the remake was later released in 2017 and PQube published these versions in the West under the game's original title, White Day: A Labyrinth Named School. A prequel to White Day, called White Day: Swan Song, is also currently in development for the PlayStation 4 as a VR title.

The remake of White Day: A Labyrinth Named School was initially announced in March of 2014 as a direct port of the original game for the iPhone called White Day: In Your Hands. The port was being co-developed by the newly resurrected Sonnori, who had been out of business for a few years before this announcement, and another Korean developer named Gachyon Soft. However, as development continued, new material kept being added to the game, including redone graphics, additional story content, and new ghosts among other features that the team wanted to include in the first game back in 2001. The title was later re-announced in January of 2015 as a remake and development was switched to the team's new company called RIO Games, which is also a subsidiary of a Korean CG animation studio. Finally, in November of the same year, White Day: A Labyrinth Named School was released on T-Store, a Korean Android marketplace, where it was met with high praise and strong sales, quickly becoming one of the best selling games on the site.
