The lights are on
Today Focus Home Interactive and Might Rocket Studio announced a new game called Obscure. As part of the announcement, they included a trailer to give you an idea about the action-filled 2.5D side-scroller.
In Obscure, you play as students with disparate skills that advance as you fight down baddies. The game includes a cooperative mode where you can team up with buddies local or online to test your skills.
If you're a survival horror fan like myself, you probably recognized the name Obscure from the PS2 survival horror games. Yes, there is a connection. Some of the developers have joined Might Rocket Studio to keep the name alive and embrace its roots. Although the game is more action, it does has survival horror elements running through it like scarce ammo and health supplies.
Obscure is set for release in Spring of 2013 and will be available on PC, Xbox Live, and PSN.
Check out the first trailer and screens below, where you'll see blood splatter, monsters blow up, and characters do backflips.
