'Obscure' (PS2/Xbox/PC) Goes Gold - Screens

by Rainier on March 23, 2005 @ 3:52 p.m. PST

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.

In the vein of Hollywood’s popular horror movie genre, Obscure tracks a group of five high school students who discover the halls they walk each day are anything but safe. A string of mysterious disappearances and unexplained events set the stage for a night more horrifying than any trip to detention...

Obscure offers a wide range of gameplay options to see gamers through their night of terror. Players customize their action experience, interchanging between any characters at any time, utilizing the unique skills and abilities of each student. Controlled AI settings of defense, attack and help, allow characters to assist each other during combat and while solving puzzles.

The game also offers single or team play, with a second player able to enter or exit the game at any time for a unique co-op experience. Obscure is also one of the first survival horror games to propose a full cooperative mode: a second player can take control of another student and work together to fight monsters and resolve puzzles, adding a new level of challenge to the game.

Stress runs high as players are constantly vulnerable to attack, even when they least expect it! Monsters also face their share of vulnerability when players combine conventional weapons with natural and artificial light, exploiting their weak spots. A “black aura” feature intensifies stress, making dangerous elements visible on screen through real-time graphic effects. To keep the player fully immersed in virtual panic, dynamic camera settings allow for complete freedom of movement, making it possible to shoot and move simultaneously.

Developed by Hydravision, Obscure is rated of ‘M’ for Mature. For more information, or to download the demo, visit http://www.dreamcatchergames.com/dci/obscure/.
