Knowledge is power. By a sudden circumstance, everything you read and learn becomes true in front of your eyes. When a gruesome verse written on a wall in blood turns into reality, do you want to keep reading? Knowledge is painful.

Korpus is a first-person horror game in which you have been sent to evaluate an abandoned house in Eastern Europe as a real estate agent. Uncover the houses past as you learn what horrors it hides.


  • The house changes based on the things you know. You just learned that the dark hallway has one more door in it and a vengeful ghost is coming after you? There is now.  
  • The game is an unconventional horror game perceived from the first perspective. There is no combat – all the monsters must be dealt with indirect means, either by avoiding, hiding or something cleverer. 
  • The ghosts lurking in the dark corners of the house work
    in different ways. Some are hostile, some or not, but only one thing is clear: they will not make your journey to the source of the madness any easier.
  • In order to solve the secrets of the house, you need to figure out how the house works. Is one specific bookshelf in your way and need it to disappear? Read a note that contradicts its existence.

ATTENTION: The game requires .NET 3.5 framework to work properly.

I really enjoyed this game. But I had the same problem as a few others did when the monster appeared. 


This is really good until the monster appears, when it basically becomes unplayable for me. The very limited stamina for running is awful, but it's the doors that are the real problem. They require mouse movement, they don't stop when they are closed but continue to swing past the center point, the monster can block them, and you have to do this while also running away? I guess I'm just not that skilled anymore.

I'll come back and give it another couple tries, but I really hate when I'm enjoying good horror and then I die literally ten times in a row due to finicky controls.

Seconded. I was all in and really invested, but this sequence is way too cumbersome and frustrating.


got this game in the ukraine bundle, for some reason all of the notes show the same text and have a glitched texture and so i cant get out of the first room, not really sure why?


I have the exact same issue :(

Hi and thanks for letting us know! Are you sure you have .NET 3.5 framework installed? We've noticed similar issues when .NET was not installed correctly or missing

I do, I also tried disabling and re-enabling 3.5 through windows and it didn't seem to make a difference

Enjoyed playing this game and would like to discover endings

So far, enjoyable, will keep all posted on my findings and take on it after beating the game

I would very much like to play it is VERY GOOD, the bad thing is that you have to pay and I don't have a credit card or anything, when will it be free to play?

Around how long is this game?

- L

It takes generally around 2 hours to see the ending.
