Developer Hydravision Entertainment
Release Date March 25th, 2008
Genre Survival Horror
Platform Wii, PC, PS2
Rating Mature (blood and gore, drug reference, mild sexual themes, violence)

Obscure: The Aftermath takes place just a few years after the events of the first game. The characters have all gone to college and are trying to move on with their lives. One of the college professors has a brother dying from a strange disease, and in order to cure him, is secretly administering the drug to some of the students.An experiment gone out of control contaminates the students and campus, leading to some disastrous consequences….


Continuing with the same tag-team approach that worked in the first game, your team of two will switch off to carry out tasks and battle monsters. Different characters have different strengths, so figuring out the strengths and weaknesses of each of your team mates is paramount to learning the dark secret surrounding the school. Generally each team consists of a girl and boy (dating and making innuendo comments, naturally), so it’s easy to figure out who should move the heavy box and who should seduce monsters….no duh.

Official Description

Obscure II is the sequel to the acclaimed survival horror game Obscure.
Two years ago, at Leafmore High, a group of young teenagers were trapped inside their school and hunted by monsters that had been released by the maniac headmaster. Some of them survived that terrible night, while others perished. Now, the survivors have picked up their lives and joined college.

But all is not right on Fallcreek University; strange black flowers have suddenly sprung up everywhere on the campus. While experimenting with these flowers in class, a dangerous substance is discovered that induces strange but vivid dreams.

But a handful of students find out that there is more to the flowers than anyone could have expected; when the seeds finally germinate, a bad trip suddenly turns into a horrible reality…
