ObsCure on Steam Trailer
ObsCure 2: The Aftermath on Steam Trailer
ObsCure and its sequel, ObsCure 2: Aftermath, have been announced to be coming on Steam with an updated PC release (which now includes things such as 16:9 support, controller support, and other unannounced features). The news comes from the studios social feeds, and a few details coming from Destructoid.
Prices have not been announced, but it has been confirmed we'll be seeing the games sooner than later, as both games release on Steam on March 7th.
For those who don't know what the ObsCure games are, they are survival-horror games that follow in-line with things like the older Resident Evil games, but taking place in a school setting with a lot of stereotypes at play (things like the 'super nerd', 'exploitable slut who gets killed first', 'crazed axe murderer chasing you through the woods', sort of thing), which also featured local co-op (would love online co-op to be announced, but not holding my breath). They have grown on to be sort of niche cult titles for fans of the genre.
Both games also have a pretty good soundtrack, composed by Olivier Deriviere, who may also be known as the person who composed the music for Alone in the Dark 5, Remember Me, and Assassin's Creed IV: Freedom Cry.
However, one interesting thing to note is that the studio who made ObsCure went down the tube, but the studio revived itself as a more independent studio with a lot of the team members who worked on the ObsCure games, They chipped in money together and bought their IP back from their old publisher, and now are free to do with it as they please. They released Final Exam on digital services last year, which is a side-scrolling beat-em up spin-off of the ObsCure franchise.
Loving all of these old games releasing on Steam recently, and approve of the movement as a horror enthusiast..
