Focus Home Interactive and developer Mighty Rocket Studio today unveiled Obscure, a complete reimagining of the survival-horror game with the same name 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 2.5D side-scroller for over a year.
Obscure lets you play, alone and in cooperative mode up to four players (local & online), as one of four unlikely heroes; students, each with unique skills and abilities that develop throughout the adventure. The game’s combat emphasizes combos, follow-up attacks, and score-multipliers.
Your goal will be to 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.
Obscure will release on PC, PSN and Xbox LIVE in spring 2013.
