Great news for side-scrolling lovers! Focus Home Interactive and Mighty Rocket Studios today announced Obscure. Obscure, coming to PC, PSN and Xbox LIVE, is a action-rich 2.5D side-scroller, drenched in the blood and caustic humor inspired by the teen and horror movie genres. Check out the unveil trailer below:
Playable alone or in cooperative mode, both local & online, Obscure lets you play as one of four unlikely student heroes, 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 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.
Obscure will release on PC, PSN and Xbox LIVE in Spring 2013.
