White Day: A Labyrinth Named School (화이트데이: 학교라는 이름의 미궁) is a Korean survival horror game developed by Sonnori that tells the story of a young man's trip into school at the dead of night to deliver some candy to So-yeong, his crush, in preparation for the Eastern holiday of the same name (similar to Valentine's Day in Western countries).

As he sneaks in, he gets involved into a story that runs deeper than the school's innocent exterior. It doesn't take long for the place to go from moody and dark into a full-blown nightmare as parts of the school begin to grow dilapidated, ghosts begin to appear, and an insane janitor patrols the halls.

White Day is often regarded as a cult classic, prophetic of many of the horror game tropes we are familiar with today. It arguably pioneered the 'defenseless hero hiding in the dark' genre of horror a whole decade before Amnesia did, making the game way ahead of its time.

When it was released in 2001, White Day was hailed by many as the scariest game of all time. Even today, you'll hear fans say the same thing, due in part to its mastery of atmosphere, off-kilter presentation, subtle scares and erie old graphics, unmatched by other horror games today.

Due to piracy, White Day unfortunately sold very poorly. A year or two after it was released, Sonnori even removed the serial number requirement in an official update. A UK release of White Day was planned for 2004 by 4AM Entertainment, but the company shut down, so it never saw the light of day. As such, the game completely fell under the radar outside of Korea, with very little mention of its existence online.

The last copies of White Day were sold in 2004 with Sonnori’s 10th anniversary ‘Romance Package’ - a compilation of all their games up until that point. After that, the game quickly fell into the category of abandonware.

White Day finally surfaced in the English speaking world in 2013, albeit with a very poor translation, and a huge number of bugs. Over time the game was patched and retranslated by 'emuyia', formerly known as Unnamed, allowing many horror fans to experience this hidden gem for the first time.

I know your comment is very old but in case anyone else needs this information as well, try playing at a 4:3 aspect ratio. You can do this by selecting a resolution in the settings of the launcher which is 4:3.
