Obscure series spun off into co-op brawler

Do you remember ObsCure? The survival horror game series by Hydravision has become somewhat self-referential, as it has become rather obscure itself in the years since its multiplatform release.

Developer Mighty Rocket Studios includes staff from Hydravision, adapting its old franchise into a brawler with non-linear levels and RPG elements. Players control a group of students, each with their own abilities that compliment each other in local or online co-op.%Gallery-178237%
