Once known as Obscure, Mighty Rocket Studios have changed their upcoming title to Final Exam after some fan confusion over what the content of the game should be like as an Obscure series game. Mighty Rocket Studio’s François Potentier had this to say:
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. 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.
Final Exam is a 2.5 dimension side-scrolling action game, which allows you to command up to four characters against a horde of diverse creatures in solo or co-op modes. The game is set to release later this year in September to the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC (both retail and digital copies for the latter). For more details on the game, check out the new trailer and screenshots below, which show off the characters, enemies and weapons Final Exam has to offer, and the Final Exam website.
