Unveiled a few months ago with the title Obscure, the game under development by part of Hydravision’s ex-members – creators of the Survival Horror series of the same name – has changed name. This decision was actually dictated by the numerous reactions from the original console game’s fans who, after Mighty Rocket Studio announced the new release, regretted it was not a real sequel to the Obscure series.
When we read the first comments following the announcement of our new game, we understood that our fans expected a different content from a game entitled ‘Obscure'”, explains François Potentier, director at Mighty Rocket Studio. “We understand fans all the better because we are first and foremost passionate gamers! Thus, even if the game makes a great number of references to Obscure and Obscure 2, we thought it important to rename it. At the end of the day, it’s a question of honesty and respect to the gamers. ‘Final Exam’ does befit the game accurately. Final Exam is the first corner stone of our new studio, and we hope this title will enable us to grow, as we have not given up on the idea of developing a real sequel to Obscure.”
To celebrate we’ve got three new screens from the game. Discover Nathan and Cassy, two of the four playable characters, grappling with particularly nasty monsters. And meet the ‘Tank’, a terrifying uninvited guest that will make life horribly difficult for our friends!
Final Exam will be released on Xbox LIVE Arcade, PlayStation Network and PC (in store and for download) next September.
