Dead or School is a side-scrolling action game with RPG elements, developed as a debut project by Studio Nanafushi, an independent, three-person team.


When Tokyo was overrun by hordes of living corpses and other monsters, people had to seek refuge underground. The main character of Dead or School, Hisako, was born and grew up in such a hideout. She knew schools only from stories, and they appeared to her to be a real paradise for young people. One day, Hisako found herself on a train going to the surface, where she believes she will find not only one of such facilities, but also friends and places to play. But before this happens, Hisako has to face countless enemies.


The action in Dead or School is shown from the side. During the game, we travel through the gloomy districts of Tokyo (Shinjuku, Asakusa, Akihabara and Roppongi) and fight against opponents, both common mooks and powerful bosses. During real-time clashes, we must avoid attacks from enemies, derive fast counters and combine attacks into spectacular combinations.

Weapons also play an important role, whose individual parameters (attack strength, weight and additional effects) can be improved by using parts acquired during the adventure; the same is true of Hisako's combat skills, whose range is expanded after advancing to the next level of experience.

Technical aspects

Dead or School features two-dimensional manga-style visuals. Due to the high brutality and erotic themes, the production is intended for adult customers only.
