Announced a few months ago as Obscure the 2.5D survival horror side-scrolling brawler game has now had a change of name to Final Exam, this decision was actually dictated by the numerous reactions from the original console game’s fans who, after Mighty Rocket Studio announced the new release, regretted it was not a real sequel to the Obscure series. Boo.
“When we read the first comments following the announcement of our new game, we understood that our fans expected a different content from a game entitled ‘Obscure'”, explains François Potentier, director at Mighty Rocket Studio. “We understand fans all the better because we are first and foremost passionate gamers! Thus, even if the game makes a great number of references to Obscure and Obscure 2, we thought it important to rename it. At the end of the day, it’s a question of honesty and respect to the gamers. ‘Final Exam’ does befit the game accurately. Final Exam is the first corner stone of our new studio, and we hope this title will enable us to grow, as we have not given up on the idea of developing a real sequel to Obscure.”
Along with this announcement comes a bunch of new screenshots that you can see below and they’ve launched the Final Exam website!
Final Exam features action-packed 2.5D side-scrolling gameplay and it’s unique combat system, there’s also a super-fun cooperative mode ( for up to 4 players). There’s four playable characters to choose from (Sean, Cassy, Nathan and Brutal Joe) and Final Exam features a bunch of monsters who will try and annihilate you. If that’s not enough to get you interested there’s also a huge arsenal at your disposal to nuke them off!
