'Obscure' (Xbox/PC) - Screens

Lead a group of 5 American school kids stranded in their school facing strange events and monsters. The night will be long and survival difficult... As you progress through the game you'll need to use the skills of their team to fight monsters (using a variety of weapons including wooden bars, baseball bats, pistols, shotguns and beyond), solve puzzles and generally put a stop to the mysterious series of events that are befalling the school.

Players can choose between any of the three students, who must keep each other alive while searching for their friends in the abandoned moonlit campus, tussling along the way with a whole bundle of bizarre creatures - although the only ones on show in this very early build appeared to be walking buttocks with teeth, and a large crab with a human arm. The creatures are sensitive to darkness, so as well as just plugging away, you'll be able to use strong light to ward them off. The option will be available to play through co-operatively, two people to a console.
