For those unaware White Day is a reverse Valentine's Day, celebrated in many Eastern countries which takes place exactly a month on from the aforementioned, and seeís men instead gift to women.

The game - with the clue being in the title - takes place on this particular day and, will have players locked in the creepy Yeondoo High School after hours - along with their classmates - as a romantic gesture goes wrong. With a killer janitor hunting you down and ghostly apparitions wandering the hallways itís going to take all of your wits to live through the night.

Set to release in August, the game will receive both a digital and physical release in the European and North American markets through PQube, with Korean developers ROI Games having reworked the games controls, graphics and even adding an entirely new character with their own storyline.

With no combat to speak of, White Day: A Labyrinth Named School was already ahead of its time when it released in its native Korea back in 2001, crafting a pure first person, survival-horror experience, allowing the player to only run and hide from oncoming threats.

Now western gamers will finally be able to partake in this horror gem in just a few months time.
