The game was pretty awesome. Seeing the action played out on a bigger screen should be even better Twisted Evil

"Another" was a pretty good show, but it was adapted from a novel where this is adapted from a game.

Game adaptations can be a little hit-or-miss, especially to people who aren't familiar with the source material.

True enough however the same could be said for Another and the limited episode run. Now I will say this for another the ln, manga and anime stand on their with having original endings so that did do something right for adapts.

On corpse party even though this might be a long shot for a stand alone ova's to tell a different story, at least the remake of the original game made it out japan in full English to the east.

Corpse Party is more of a visual novel than a game-like game, so it's easy to turn into a great anime. More than that, it has a much richer story than Another, so if done right it won't feel like viewers figured out everything 6 episodes before idiotic characters (no offense to Another, it still was good, it just didn't have enough plot to properly hold 12 episodes).

The problem is, this looks like a cheap no-talent cash-grab, just like Missing Footage was.

It's best to wait until more is shown or until it comes out, a lot of what was shown here was still or very close to still and considering its a little over two minute long video with text cut in I don't think it's a good idea to pass judgment when it states there'll be four episodes.
