I posted this picture on the forums awhile ago- part of a game I was working on then I got bored of CP and left. XP
Anyway, I've started work on it again, and am currently working on the assets. So far, this is what I have (Updated as I make more)
Space Heater (untextured)(Outdated)

Desk (Finished)

Infirmary Bed (Need materials for mattress)

Desk, Chair, and Candle (Artwork!)

Infirmary (Incomplete)

Classroom 1-A (Incomplete)

The internet is an amazing thing. It allows people from all over the world to connect with each other. You can communicate with people halfway around the world and watch their TV shows with the click of a button. Some people spend hours every day doing this- such is the case with high school senior and otaku James Murphy. On the day before their graduation, he proposes a charm to his friends known as Sachiko Ever After- another weird thing from Japan. By performing the charm, supposedly, they'll be friends forever. His friends are skeptical, but they go along with it.
Suddenly, they find themselves in a strange place. It's a school, all right, but like no school they've ever seen. The place is littered with corpses, and there are posters all over the place written in Chinese or something. What is this place? More importantly, how do they get out?

Characters (more to come)
Noah Fletcher
The main character, a high school senior at Ulysses S. Grant High School. A bit of a jerk, can be selfish at times. Dislikes James.

James Murphy
17 years old, a high school senior and an otaku. Kind of a coward.

Art Style
The art style is going to be photorealistic (imitates real life) to start, because it's extremely hard to get good results with cartoon styles in 3D games, but it should end up looking something like this once I get far enough along. This is because a part of corpse party's horror comes from the pixelated graphics- it leaves the worst stuff up to the imagination. Notice how Yoshiki is blocking the part where Ayumi gets cut in half during that wrong end (see here). Also, I plan on making it a first-person game, since (a) it's easier to do that way and (b) It can add to the sense of being trapped.

Arguably the biggest part of Corpse Party's horror comes from the sound design. Bones cracking, the screams, the disgusting "squick" sound that happens when they pull out the scissors... you name it, CP shines in this department. I'm going to try to duplicate that here- there will be plenty of ambient sounds throughout, from people meeting their unfortunate demise, to laughs echoing throughout the halls, to footsteps drawing closer and closer...

I'm going to have several mechanics in this game, including...
Darkening meter
Remember that thing you hated from BoS? (Okay, it wasn't much of a problem, but still.) Yep, that's going in this game. It'll go up through certain actions, like looking at corpses- the longer you look at them, the more it goes up. Except in this case, it'll go back down over time, to a degree. If you're at 99% darkening, you won't go back to 0%, maybe 25%. I'm planning on letting the worst parts go unseen by using darkening effects- to see my concept, check the spoiler below.
Darkening Effects Concept

When darkened, your vision will be distorted, and you'll do more violent things, such as punching windows instead of just trying to open them. Enemies are also more likely to notice you, and sometimes your character will do the opposite of what you tell them to do (Think when your pokemon's level gets too high). Movement speed will be increasingly slowed.

General gameplay
Your only goal is to survive for as long as you can. Outrun the ghost children, hide from Yoshikazu, defend yourself from darkened students. Heavenly Host is a place of death, how long can you hold onto your life?

Thanks for reading my game concept! I'm super pumped for this, and I hope you are too! Comments, questions, and suggestions all welcome and appreciated.
Again, thanks for reading!

Space Heater (untextured) [snip] based on a 1919 Perfection brand oil heater- I know it's too old to be in HH, but I'm invoking rule of cool here because the ones from the '70s look too modern.

Why not design a space heater like this? This is an actual space heater made back in 1952 which would match better with the time of Heavenly Host. Not to mention it looks exactly like the space heater used in the Infirmary of Corpse Party.

To those curious, the exact name of this space heater is called a Vintage Aladdin Space Heater (Antique Aladdin Space Heater also works).

Hey, that looks pretty cool! I couldn't find any photo refs for a heater like that. I'll make a model of that as soon as I finish the other assets :P
(Also, finished infirmary bed, updated original post).
EDIT: I also figured the space heater would be from the '70s, since that was when HH was torn down.

That could have been my idea... already.
Thank you for making this game based on my idea...!
... and I hope it doesn't require 3D glasses...
