OBSCURE is unveiled today for the very first time, through a punchy video full of action, monsters, and hemoglobin, and you can watch it below! The game, as you can witness in the trailer, is a pure, action-rich 2.5D side-scroller, drenched in blood and caustic humor.
The press release from the game says that:
"Playable alone and in cooperative mode (local & online), OBSCURE lets you play as one of four unlikely heroes; students, each with unique skills and abilities that develop throughout the adventure. Geared toward action and all-out brawling, Obscure's combat emphasizes combos, follow-up attacks, and score-multipliers! Survive against packs of monsters trying to skin you alive, discover new weapons, and complete objectives throughout a variety of huge, non-linear levels. Overshooting the scores will earn you experience points to level your character up, unlocking new weapons, skills, and other devastating abilities! At any time, you can even get back to some of earlier levels to try your new toys and beat your scores!"
This game looks exciting as hell, don't you think?
Video game veterans will certainly recognize the license, OBSCURE; the survival-horror game from Hydravision that terrorized over a million players in the middle of the last decade.
Despite the completely different style of game-play, Mighty Rocket Studio's new game embraces its origins and incorporates many familiar elements of the survival-horror genre; sparse ammunition, limited supplies of health kits, and the oppressive feeling of constant danger in a universe where gruesome creatures may suddenly appear out of nowhere!
OBSCURE will be released on PC, PSN and XBOX LIVE in spring 2013.
