From Focus Home Interactive and Mighty Rocket Studio, in Obscure you can play one of four stereotypical high schoolers: the nerd, the tough kid, the emo girl, and the jock, and run through side-scrolling platform levels blasting away an assortment of monsters, small, big, and Gargantuan, with cool weapons and devices and even using their extraordinary powers while completing missions.
Not much has been said on the game yet but from the looks of it, they took the the old-style of run-and-gun games, like Metal Slug and Contra, and gave it a 21st century makeover. I’m also curious about the characters’ background and basics of the game; what has these four unlikely people working together? Why are there monsters; has a seal to hell been broken or was there an epidemic? Where and how did the characters learn to use abilities? What’s the bunny head used for?? Why is the tough kid wearing pink shoes?! Guess I’ll see when the game is released this year on the 360, PS3, and PC.
Will Obscure be on your want list?
