Focus Home Interactive announces Obscure, a 2.5D side-scrolling action game coming to Windows, Xbox LIVE, and PlayStation Network this spring:
Obscure is unveiled today for the very first time, through a punchy
video full of action, monsters, and hemoglobin!
Obscure for PC, PSN and Xbox LIVE is a pure, action-rich 2.5D
side-scroller, drenched in the blood and caustic humor inspired by the
teen and horror movie genres... a spirit that definitely shows through
Playable alone and in cooperative mode (local & online), Obscure
lets you play as one of four unlikely heroes; students, each with
unique skills and abilities that develop throughout the adventure.
Geared toward action and all-out brawling, Obscure's combat emphasizes
combos, follow-up attacks, and score-multipliers! Survive against packs
of monsters trying to skin you alive, discover new weapons, and
complete objectives throughout a variety of huge, non-linear levels.
Overshooting the scores will earn you experience points to level your
character up, unlocking new weapons, skills, and other devastating
abilities! At any time, you can even get back to some of earlier levels
to try your new toys and beat your scores!
Obscure rises to an entirely different scale in multiplayer. In
cooperative mode, up to four players (local and online) team up to
survive. Split up to fill your objectives as fast as possible, or stay
together in a cohesive team to increase your chances of survival!
Video game veterans will certainly recognize the license, Obscure; the
survival-horror game from Hydravision that terrorized over a million
players in the middle of the last decade. Comprised of some of the
original developers, Mighty Rocket Studio has been hard at work on this
project for over a year.
Despite the completely different style of gameplay, Mighty Rocket
Studio's new game embraces its origins and incorporates many familiar
elements of the survival-horror genre; sparse ammunition, limited
supplies of health kits, and the oppressive feeling of constant danger
in a universe where gruesome creatures may suddenly appear out of
nowhere! Obscure fans will feel right at home, and will even get to
visit the famous Leafmore High School and meet some of the previous
characters from the series.
Obscure will release on PC, PSN and Xbox LIVE in spring 2013!
