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.

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.

"DreamCatcher is excited to release Obscure in North America," says Robert Stevenson, V.P. of Production at DreamCatcher Games. "Players will be impressed not only by the Hollywood feel to the game, but also with the variety of gameplay options unique to this genre."
