Name change accompanied by new website and screenshots
Obscure, announced a few months ago as a sequel to the Obscure series, has now gotten a name change, along with a new website of its own, and some new screenshots. Apparently, the decision was prompted after fan outrage that the new game was not a real successor to the Obscure series.
“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'”, said François Potentier, director of 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.”
Following the name change, Obscure has gotten a name change to Final Exam, along with new screenshots and its very own website.
Final Exam is a 2.5D platformer/sidescroller due on PSN, XBLA, and PC next September.
