Wii, PS2 and PC gamers have a new survival horror game to pick up and play during spring break, as Obscure: The Aftermath headed for retail today for all three systems. Ignition Entertainment’s game carries price tags of $29.99 for the Wii version, $19.99 for the PlayStation 2 version and $14.99 for PC.
Obscure: The Aftermath sounds a bit like Fatal Frame, with its creepy imagery including dimly lit hallways, dripping blood and demonic monsters. However, Obscure: The Aftermath also has a two-player cooperative option, and its soundtrack is performed by the Boston String Quartet and the Paris Opera Children’s Choir.
Kids singing in a survival horror game…. Yep, that boosts the creepy factor ten-fold, as far as we’re concerned.
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 meets the eye, turning their bad (acid-like?) trips into a horrible reality.
You guessed it: Obscure: The Aftermath is rated M for Mature.
