Obscure NA Date

DreamCatcher Games announces plans to publish Obscure in North America, with the PC, Xbox, and PS2 editions of the survival/horror game in the vein of the teen horror film formula all due in March of this year. Here's a bit:
In the style of Hollywood’s popular horror movie genre, Obscure tracks a group of five all-American high school students who discover the halls they walk each day are anything but safe from their most horrifying nightmares. A string of mysterious disappearances and unexplained events set the stage for a night more horrifying than any trip to detention...

“A captivating thriller can spark fear in the heart of anyone,” said Byron Gaum, Product Manager for DreamCatcher Games. “But books and movies just can’t compare to the fully interactive scare one will experience when they play Obscure.”

Obscure offers a wide range of gameplay options to see gamers through their night of terror. Players customize their action experience, interchanging between any characters at any time, utilizing the unique skills and abilities of each student. Controlled AI settings of defense, attack and help, allow characters to assist each other during combat and while solving puzzles.

This one actually looks pretty good! But I wonder if any horror game will ever be as good as Resident Evil 4.

Haunted School + Multiple Player characters with unique skills + Adventure game setting.

Sounds like the Lurking Horror meets Maniac Mansion.

Count me in.
