It doesn't take long for the place to go from moody and dark into [[NightmareSequence a full-blown nightmare]] as parts of the school begin to grow dilapidated, an [[AxCrazy insane]] janitor goes to town on a seemingly random adult before he starts coming for you, and two girls that seem pretty unfazed about the school turning into a hellish nightmare. [[FromBadToWorse And everything goes downhill from there]]...

Since the cancellation of the localization and Sonnori closing up shop, the game itself has become something of a rarity with a few people seeding torrents and file downloads in an attempt to [[KeepCirculatingTheTapes keep a copy available]]. Unnamed Studios has been working on a fan-made translation/restoration project that translates the game and fixes the compatibility issues so it can be played on non-Korean [=PC=]s.

While regarded by many as a cult classic, the game has been seen by many as not having a chance of a sequel or re-release... However, in early 2016, it was announced it will be re-released for the UsefulNotes/PlayStation4, made to be used with its new VR technology, and completely redone from the ground up. An Android and [=iOS=] version of the remake has been released overseas in April 2016 under the title ''The School: White Day'', with a PC version that was quickly greenlit for UsefulNotes/{{Steam}} and was finally released on August 22, 2017 and can be purchased [[http://store.steampowered.com/app/466130/White_Day_A_Labyrinth_Named_School/ here]].

Added DiffLines:

* TheTease: Seong-Ah certainly acts this way when you first meet her, being quite flirtatious with Hee-min in order to get him to do what she wants.

Added DiffLines:

* BadassGrandpa: Lee-Bong-gu is a villainous example. The man is pushing 60 and has a pretty bad limp, but he'll beat you to death easily if he corners you.


Added DiffLines:

* EvilSoundsDeep: The janitors Lee-Bong-gu and Son-Dal-su don't have any actual dialogue in the game, but instead make deep, almost animalistic, growls and grunts if they see you.
* FanservicePack: One of the DLC packs for the remake is the "Swimsuit pack" which allows you to dress all the characters in swimsuits. So-young and Seong-A both don pretty revealing bikinis, and there's {{Gainaxing}} aplenty thanks to this. Especially with [[BuxomIsBetter Seong-A.]]


Added DiffLines:

** Ji-hyeon mentions that Lee-Bong-gu (the janitor with a limp) is "nice in the daytime".
