Game developed & published by Studio Nanafushi , Dead or School is a role playing game with side scrolling action elements. Available on Nintendo Switch & PC!
Underground dwelling girl Hisako is aiming for the surface in a zombie infested Tokyo. Hack and slash RPG! Obtain weapons and gear from enemies, and customize your skill tree to create your own unique and powerful a character!
Note/First impressions:- The gameplay consists of side scrolling 2.5D action like Bloodstained or Castlevania... Although there’s a click-bait tag of nudity and some artworks make it seem like a bit different genre (A marketing move I guess) on Steam page. This game doesn’t contain nudity, or sexual content but some suggestive cut-scenes are there.. So, don’t worry about it if you’ve got doubts. (Check the user reviews on Steam Game Page too, which also confirm the same). There’s some suggestive art stuff which I wish, they had opted out so that people wouldn’t ignore this game due to the click-bait nature. The torn clothes is a damage system in real time, which is pretty cool but perhaps, bruises could have been better than torn clothes (Like classic Wolfenstein or Doom face changes with damage)
