*Dramatic movie trailer voice* From the developer of The Coma: Cutting Class and Vambrace: Cold Soul comes a new kind of horror experience. Take control of an unlikely heroine, explore a Korean high school and its surrounding districts while evading a terrifying (but hot) teacher who’s out to massacre you. Devespresso’s second instalment in The Coma franchise – The Coma 2: Vicious Sisters – is currently available for download on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Switch.
Like its predecessor, The Coma 2 is a 2D horror adventure game. It incorporates the signature art style of the dev’s previous games – The Coma and Vambrace: Cold Soul. Our review of The Coma: Recut praised the game’s story and visuals, even though fleeing lost its novelty quickly. On the other hand, Vambrace was the developer’s first foray onto the RPG scene. And while it treaded on the simpler side of RPG mechanics, it was an overall enjoyable experience.
With The Coma 2, however, Devespresso Games went back to atmospheric horror. This time you take control of Sehwa High student Mina Park and guide her through a twisted version of the high school. Once again, you’ll explore the dark halls of the once familiar high school and escape the creepy Ms Song. Take advantage of shadows and the environment to hide, use lockers and bathroom stalls to avoid detection. Contrary to popular beliefs, light is your enemy.
Using a flashlight or any other source of light could reveal Mina’s whereabouts and spell instant doom. To progress and escape the darkness, you must collect notes, clues and key items. Use these to solve puzzles and move onward. Collect items to treat wounds. But beware, Mina’s pockets are not bottomless and she can only carry four items at a time. On your quest, you’ll encounter both enemies and allies, and possibly a certain someone from previous games.
The Coma 2: Vicious Sisters is available for £15.74 on the Xbox Store, as well as PlayStation Store, Nintendo’s eShop and PC. Enjoy the trailer for The Coma 2 down below and grab yourself a digital copy if it tickles your fancy. And as always, stay tuned for our imminent review of The Coma 2: Vicious Sisters to find out all about it.

Explore the surrounding Sehwa district and uncover the shadow realm’s dark secrets. Use everything at your disposal to avoid a demoness hellbent on killing you! Mina Park, a student of Sehwa High, awakens at 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 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 Coma 2: Vicious Sisters is an atmospheric, story-driven game. Immerse yourself in the warped Sehwa district as you encounter an engaging cast of characters, solve puzzles, discover revealing clues, and fight for survival against a relentless psycho. Heroines, forced to confront their worst fears, rarely emerge unscathed. Over the course of the story, Mina will encounter dangerous scenarios from which she could sustain permanent damage. Craft items to anticipate future dangers to avoid injury. Dark Song is now more fearsome and powerful than ever before. Falling into her grasp could spell instant death. Running and wielding your flashlight makes you an easy target. You must precariously balance the urgency of exploration with your absolute need to survive!
