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.

As the sequel to Obscure, Obscure: The Aftermath chronicles 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 than anyone could have ever expected, turning their bad trips into a horrible reality.

In addition to the unique story-driven gameplay, Obscure: The Aftermath features blood-splattered imagery, dimly lit hallways, a wide variety of weaponry and demonic monsters.
