Cause of Death in the fictional universe of Surviving High School, is an application on smartphones and other electronic devices.
The application in Surviving High School is similar itself to the actual game, Cause of Death, which is as well created by EA Mobile. The concept is to play as a detective and solve crimes through a storyline. The game was most likely inducted into Surviving High School as promotion for Cause of Death, which was then recently released.
- Ironically, during which Cause of Death was frequently promoted within the episodes, Brendan explain multiple times the point of the game. Simultaneously, events of Cause of Death would be taken place and take little part in Surviving High School's storyline (such as Colt Warren's situation), all while the Cause of Death was still labeled as merely an application within the latter.
