Focus Home Entertainment announced a new game today called Obscure. It's being developed by Mighty Rocket Studios, and looks to be a fun 2.5D side-scrolling shooter. The game will feature four player co-op either locally or online, and it's not exactly a straight up shooter like say Contra.
Obscure encourages combos, close melee attacks, and whatever else you can do to break scores. There's some role-playing game elements thrown into the mix too, as you can level up and unlock new weapons, skills, and abilities as you complete objectives in the big non-linear levels.
Sounds neat. Liking the visuals, and always wanting more co-op games to play. Expect Obscure to come out Spring 2013 on Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network, and PC.
