'Obscure: The Aftermath' (PS2/Wii/PC) Win a Wii Contest

Obscure II takes place two years after the gruesome events of the first game. The survivors have gone on to college and try to return to their normal lives. After the discovery of a beautiful but strange plant on school campus, events take a turn for the worse. Soon, the college students have to battle for survival once again.

The story of Obscure: The Aftermath follows the survivors from Leafmore High, now enrolled at Fallcreek University, where the unsuspecting student body has a new addiction – strange black flowers that have suddenly sprung up all over campus. As the students begin experimenting with the substance they realize there is more to these flowers, turning their bad trips into a horrible reality. Obscure: The Aftermath is heavily inspired by teen horror movies with an onslaught of creepy gruesome imagery.

Players of Obscure: The Aftermath can choose their character and one AI controlled sidekick. In total there are six playable characters, each with their own unique abilities. These can be switched at various points in the game. Due to the game’s unique co-op feature, friends can join at any time to team up and attempt surviving Obscure II together. There are many available weapons to keep the monsters that hunt you at bay. Light might be the players’ biggest ally because you never know what’s lurking in the shadows.

“We’re nearing the big launch of Obscure: The Aftermath and the excitement is growing,” said Ajay Chadha,president of Ignition Entertainment USA. “This contest gives horror fans and gamers alike the chance to win an awesome game on a great console, while scoring some very cool Draven clothing.”

Draven recently supplied shoes and clothing for a series of live-action videos based on Ignition’ s upcoming survival-horror videogame Obscure: The Aftermath.

“Draven is thrilled to be a part of Ignition’s Obscure: The Aftermath launch,” said Chad Romiti, Marketing Director for Draven. “We’ve always felt a kinship with the gaming community and are excited to deliver one of the hottest gaming consoles into the hands of one lucky Obscure fan.”
