Focus Home Interactive Announce 2.5D Action Title Obscure
Focus Home Interactive has unveiled their newest 2.5D action title in-development by Mighty Rocket Studio titled Obscure. Inspired by the teen and horror movie genres, Obscure will offer what looks to be a high adrenaline side-scroller complete with zombies.
layable alone and in cooperative mode, 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!
You can check out what to expect in the gameplay trailer below as well as a few screenshots to boot.
Obscure will release on PC, PSN and Xbox Live in spring 2013.
Games like this seriously getting wanting to build an old arcade console to house a modern day console. I'd really prefer to be leaning in using an old 8 way joystick and great big buttons made for mashing it up. The first thing that turns me off it thinking about trying to play games like this on some shitty little pinky sized joysticks and minibuttons controller.
