Announced for the Xbox Live Arcade in February, Mighty Rocket's Obscure reboot has undergone a name change in light of fan reaction. Amid claims from fans that this version of Obscure was not a true sequel to the previous survival horror titles, the name has been changed to reflect this, despite the game making numerous references to Obscure 1 and 2.
"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'", Mighty Rocket Studio Director, François Potentier explained. "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 2.5D side scroller featuring four characters - Sean, Cassy, Nathan and Brutal Joe - and support for four-player co-operative monster mashing. You'll have a whole arsenal of weapons at your disposal for all your monster slaying needs, including axes, chainsaws, uzis, Molotovs, 9mm pistols, frags, shotguns, cleavers, magnums, hammers, machetes and more.
Final Exam is coming soon to the Xbox Live Arcade. You can find out more about the game on the official website here. Check out some new screenshots below.
