Headup Partners with Devespresso Games to Bring “The Coma 2: Vicious Sisters” to US Audiences This November!
Independent game publisher, Headup, and Korean developer, Devespresso Games, have announced a publishing partnership for The Coma 2: Vicious Sisters. The title has been described as “an atmospheric, story-driven Korean survival horror game.” It’s currently scheduled for release on Steam in Q1 2020 with Early Access starting on November 7, 2019.
The Coma 2: Vicious Sisters features “vibrant, hand-illustrated” in-game visuals as well as Korean manhwa styled comic strips by Minho Kim that combine with a nightmarish story of relentless pursuit by T. L. Riven.
According to the press release, The Coma 2: Vicious Sisters is a survival horror adventure (coming soon to Steam) with a uniquely stylish look that merges with compelling gameplay sure to garner some jump scares. The title continues “the dark and sinister adventure from the first title’s once-familiar, but now deserted setting, Sehwa High School.”
It will allow the player to journey beyond the school and into the surrounding district.
“We are thrilled to be working with Devespresso Games again. After recently launching Vambrace: Cold Soul and bringing The Coma: Recut to the German retail market last year, it’s a pleasure to go the next step by publishing this picturesque horror-adventure,” commented Dieter Schoeller, founder of Headup.
“Devespresso Games is proud to, once again, have the opportunity to work with our publishing partners at Headup after the successful launch of Vambrace: Cold Soul,” added developer Tristan Riven. “This time, through our combined efforts, we’re bringing the second exciting chapter of The Coma to gamers around the world. It’s a real privilege to continue the story that started our journey in the gaming industry together.”
Currently in development, The Coma 2: Vicious Sisters is set to arrive in Q1 2020 on Steam with further details to be announced.
Here’s the official description:
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.
As for the team, Headup is a hybrid games publishing and development company “providing players worldwide with the best content in the independent gaming sector.” Established in 2009, it was awarded “Best Publisher” at the German Developers Awards in 2012, 2013 and 2017.
Devespresso Games is an independent, four-man team based out of Seoul, South Korea and San Francisco, USA. The team followed up on the success of their console debut and cult hit, The Coma: Recut, with the fantasy, roguelike adventure game Vambrace: Cold Soul (which I’ve reviewed).
