About

We are participating in OUYA's #FreeTheGames Fund, created by OUYA to support developers making new and creative console games. OUYA will match your pledge dollar-for-dollar up to the goal amount (and a max of $250,000), so help Obscurus get there and be a great game for everyone! To be eligible for this match, we commit that this game will be an OUYA exclusive for a period of time. To learn more about OUYA, go to www.OUYA.tv.

THE STORY>>

Obscurus begins in a dungeon where you've just woken with no memory of who you are or how you got there. As the game progresses your story unfolds through beautiful storybook style art and occasional voice-overs. Featuring a haunting soundtrack by "sepulchre_fields".

GAMEPLAY>>

The world of Obscurus is seen mostly in black & white with minimal color and dark levels that get brighter the higher you climb in the tower.

Obscurus offers 2 ways to view the world you're playing in and will allow you to jump seamlessly between the 2 while playing. The 1st is 2D top-down style, while the 2nd is first person point-of-view.

Risks and challenges

With the major mechanics of the game already programmed and problem-solved the biggest of the foreseeable risks is out of the way. Plus, the soundtrack is coming along nicely as the above examples will indicate and the artists have been secured. Even so, all release & delivery dates are estimates of course but if anything does arise that may hinder any projected dates, you will be notified ASAP.
