ObsCure game turns into Final Exam, coming to PS3 in November

Mighty Rocket Studios is taking you back to your high school reunion in Final Exam (formerly known as ObsCure), where monsters are roaming every corner. Just like your actual high school reunion!


High school reunions can get pretty awkward. You'll bump into your old prom date, you run into friends that you haven't talked to in years, and then monsters will show up. Ok, that may not be how your high school reunion went, but there are definitely plenty of monsters (besides your high school ex) wandering the halls in Mighty Rocket Studio's upcoming Final Exam, formerly known as ObsCure.

According to the PlayStation.Blog, this multiplayer beat'em up will feature four high school archetypes: quarterback Brutal Joe, street dancer/cheerleader Cassy, geekie Nathan, and handsome rebel Sean. It's like The Breakfast Club, if detention was filled with monsters. Each character has four power levels to take advantage of their specific skills, culminating with attacks that clear the screen. Like the Scooby Gang, the cast of Final Exam can split up to clear out different paths. While there's safety in numbers, there are also items that can only be accessed with multiple players, like an armored parade float.

Final Exam arrives on November 5 for PS3, with Xbox 360 and PC versions expected around that time, as well. Watch the trailer below and pay attention, because some of it will be on the test.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
