That first image makes me very nervous as to where this reboot will be heading.

It's a typical attempt to appeal to the vast majority...

Obscure was never a popular franchise, it was very much "Obscure" but I imagine it had a nich fan following who probably aren't going to be happy with the reboot if the ad pic is anything to go by.

Uh oh. That doesnt look at all like an Obscure game. Looks like some sort of arcade game for phones...or consoles.

I don't think I could call it a "popular" horror series. It really was pretty obscure and I picked it up the first one for PS2 by chance from a bargain bin. It was a fun co-op experience and had some pretty suspenseful moments. Even the cheesy characters were kind of fun. I really loved the Olivier Deriviere soundtrack to the second game especially tracks like "Bad Behavior" and "Corruption with Rage & Melancholy"(He posted the music for free on his website).

Looking at the image for the reboot, I think the ad looks kind of off putting to me. Obscure was never cartoony & colorful. It's nothing detailed yet but we'll see.

Ohhhh nooooooo. I bet it's gonna a top-down twin-stick shooter. I remember playing Obscure: The Aftermath on Wii and this looks nothing close to it.
