    An atmospheric serving of high-school angst and mystery horror with not a Scooby-snack in sight.

    Welcome to the eerie halls of Leafmore High School, where for five students, an after-hours exploration may turn out to be the last decision they'll ever make.

    The zombie-infested, survival horror genre gets a shake-up in Ubisoft's teen-horror scream-a-thon. As the five teenagers sneak into the closed school to find a missing friend, they soon discover horrors beyond their wildest nightmares.

    This atmospheric 3D survival horror has a gripping "Scream meets The Faculty" storyline and the unique addition of two-player co-operative play.

    The five main characters, Shannon, Kenny, Ashley, Stan and Josh, each have their own unique abilities to contribute to the team. Stan for instance is good at picking locks while Shannon is the brains of the outfit, able to provide helpful hints. Choosing the right character for the right situation will prove vital to your survival.

    Faced with threats that literally spring from the shadows the teenagers need to arm themselves quickly to survive the lonely hallways. Various items and weapons are scattered around, some of which can be combined through a judicious use of sticky tape!

    If you thought your school is scary, just wait until your step through the gates of Leafmore. You have been warned.

    • A unique teen-horror take on the survival horror genre


    • Switch between five terrified teens. Each with their own unique strengths and weaknesses.


    • Team up with a friend for twice the frights in the co-operative mode.

DreamCatcher Press Release:

    DreamCatcher Games to Publish Obscure in North America for Windows®, Xbox® and PlayStation®2



    Toronto, January 17, 2005 - DreamCatcher Games today announced it has joined forces with MC2 to publish and distribute Obscure in North America. This Survival Horror game will be available for the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system, the Xbox® video game system from Microsoft and for Windows® in March 2005. In the style of Hollywood’s popular horror movie genre, Obscure tracks a group of five all-American high school students who discover the halls they walk each day are anything but safe from their most horrifying nightmares. A string of mysterious disappearances and unexplained events set the stage for a night more horrifying than any trip to detention...

    “A captivating thriller can spark fear in the heart of anyone,” said Byron Gaum, Product Manager for DreamCatcher Games. “But books and movies just can’t compare to the fully interactive scare one will experience when they play Obscure.”

    Obscure offers a wide range of gameplay options to see gamers through their night of terror. Players customize their action experience, interchanging between any characters at any time, utilizing the unique skills and abilities of each student. Controlled AI settings of defense, attack and help, allow characters to assist each other during combat and while solving puzzles.

    The game also offers single or team play, with a second player able to enter or exit the game at any time for a unique co-op experience. Obscure is also one of the first survival horror games to propose a full cooperative mode. A second character can be played by a second player throughout the entire adventure. Players can worked together to fight monsters and resolve puzzles, adding a new level of challenge to the game.

    Stress runs high as players are constantly vulnerable to attack, even when they least expect it! Monsters also face their share of vulnerability when players combine conventional weapons with natural and artificial light, exploiting their weak spots. A “black aura” feature intensifies stress, making dangerous elements visible on screen through real-time graphic effects. To keep the player fully immersed in virtual panic, dynamic camera settings allow for complete freedom of movement, making it possible to shoot and move simultaneously.

    Developed by Hydravision, Obscure has an ESRB rating of ‘M’ for Mature. For more information visit the official website http://www.obscure-game.com
