Obscure Renamed Final Exam

Focus Home Interactive announces a name change for Obscure, the side-scroller recently announced by Mighty Rocket Studio, a new developer formed former staff from Hydravision. This title was not obscure enough, since Hydravision has already released Obscure and Obscure 2, creating the logical expectation this continues that series. Since this is not the case, they have renamed the game to Final Exam to clear up whatever confusion this caused, and a new Final Exam website is online reflecting the change. The game is also delayed from its original release window of Spring 2013, and is now expected "next September," which we're reading as September of this year. The announcement of the name change indicates they still hope to create a true new Obscure game:

Unveiled a few months ago with the title Obscure, the game under development by part of Hydravision’s ex-members – creators of the Survival Horror series of the same name – has changed name. This decision was actually dictated by the numerous reactions from the original console game’s fans who, after Mighty Rocket Studio announced the new release, regretted it was not a real sequel to the Obscure series.

"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'", explains François Potentier, director at Mighty Rocket Studio. "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."
